Cruise away with your new Swim Suit ~ Down East Basics Giveaway!




When Down East Basics contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing a swimsuit by them as well as giving one away, I was thrilled! The first step was to decide which one I wanted....


The Mediterranean Tank swimsuit? or maybe The Riviera Tank swimsuit?

It was a close call, but I finally decided on the adorable Sausalito Halter swimsuit. When I received it, I was so happy! The quality is fantastic, it fits great, and it looks adorable! I absolutely love it. One of my favorite things about Down East Basics is their wonderful quality - the swimsuit didn't change my views! The lining is great so if you decided to get one with white in it (maybe the riviera tank?) you should be OK, unlike with cheaper brands.




Plus - they are so adorable! One of my other favorite things about them is that they aren't skimpy like a lot of swim suits are.

Are you ready for a giveaway?

Maybe your going of on a big vacation to Hawaii, or on a cruise to Alaska, or maybe your just going to stay home and lounge by the pool. Either way, here is your chance to have an adorable new swim suit to enjoy it!
