“This swimsuit is super flattering and hides my tummy (hallelujah),” wrote one happy swimsuit shopper. “I have the worst time finding a swimsuit that fits me well and doesn’t make me look like a busted can of biscuits every time I want to swim with my kids. I’ve actually purchased two of these. The first looked so good that I had to get one more because I loved it so much…”

“These shorts are perfect for curvy girls,” wrote a satisfied shopper. “I CANNOT wear standard fit women’s clothing because I have thighs, hips and a [butt] for days. The waist is always too big.

“I really wanted to buy some Birks, but couldn’t bring myself to pay the price, so I decided to go for these instead, and I was pleasantly surprised!” a happy traveler shared. “They are so cute, and I had more than one friend think they were the real deal. They go with everything and hold up very well. I wore them everywhere on my vacation to Tulum, Mexico, and they were perfect. I’ve been dealing with painful plantar fasciitis in my feet, and I’ve discovered on the days I wear these shoes my feet do not hurt nearly as much by the end of the day. I just bought a pair in another color and a pair for each of my teenagers because they keep stealing mine!”

“Absolutely love these!” wrote a delighted fashionista. “Not only do they look great, but they are genuine polarized glasses. My eyes are getting weaker and I can’t tolerate a lot of bright light. I’m finely aging!!! I can see very clearly with them whilst attempting to look hot. Life is good!”
