Screaming…it is officially SWIMSUIT SEASON!!! In the tropics it’s swimsuit season all year round but just knowing it’s officially summer makes me want to hit the pool and beach even more often. Plus the temperature here in Jamaica has drastically risen so I’m ready to live in a bikini and I think I found the swimsuit style I plan to live in.
I consider this to be one of the most flattering swimsuits I own to date (along with the other two I’m yet to wear from this line). OBSESSED! While the classic, triangle two-piece will always have a place in my heart, the highwaisted swimsuit secured their official spot for my summer of 2017 and probably longer. And it is all thanks to this stunning swimsuit from Andrea Iyamah.
I distinctly remember the exact moment I stumbled across the Andrea Iyamah Instagram account. It was love at first sight! I must have spent an hour scrolling down her page while taking screenshots of almost every swimsuit from their line. Ever since that day, Andrea Iyamah and her vibrant colored, intricately cut swimsuits have been on my radar. Fast forward 3 years and finally I own not one but THREE of her ultra-feminine, retro styled swimsuits that easily double as a work of art.
My girlfriends and I enjoy getting dolled up whenever we hang out, and since it’s the summer time we decided to wear our best bikini’s and have a little poolside get together. Unfortunately mother nature surprised me the weekend of our pool day get together and I felt and looked bloated in my mid-section. Since I wasn’t 100% comfortable wearing a revealing two-piece bikini I instead opted for my high waisted swimsuit from Andrea Iyamah and it was PERFECT! The highwaisted bottom accentuated my figure while also hiding the little budge on my stomach. It was the perfect mix of showing skin while still ‘kind of-sort of’ being covered up.
I already have an idea where and when I plan to wear my other suits from Iyamah and I think they’ll have you wander-lusting over your next tropical vacation. Guess you’ll have to stay tuned. Talk Soon. Nuff Love, Natasha ♥
