Shapewear in a swimsuit - Leonisa Swimwear

I had a sad realization this past week. My metabolism is not what it used to be. What can I expect though - I spent 6+ months on a "watch what you eat diet" for my wedding. After that day, I said goodbye to the D word and never looked back....hello burgers & pizza! Then my marathon training ended. Over the past few weeks, I have found myself uncomfortable in clothes and want nothing to do with a bathing suit.
Truth be told, I have put on nearly 15 lbs since my wedding in September. I had to buy all new shorts for this spring. What the what?! All you have to do is look at my Instagram feed and it is clear why. So unless I am at an event, I am watching everything I eat and following a very easy to follow 30 day meal plan I found online.

All this sounds great but we live in FL and it is May. This means Memorial Day festivities are right around the corner. Memorial Day = Beach = bikini = Megan hiding under a big hat. Luckily for me, Leonisa reached out to me to try out their new swimwear line who combined their shapewear with a swimsuit, creating a product that helps women feel confident. They've been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, The Today Show, Marie Claire and Jezebel.

Upon receiving the email to check out a piece from the Leonisa swimwear line, I found myself having a very hard time choosing just one. There were three suits that stuck out to me. I went with the first one shown below and I love it. However, part of me wishes I got the polka dot strapless bandeau.

Stunning Bikini Swimsuit with Air Push up
Push up halter-top with removable air padding. Halter straps tie at neck and back. Contour cups with underwire provide support and lift. Adjustable sides bikini bottom fit perfectly to you.
  • Two-piece bikini bathing suit 
  • Contour halter-top with supportive underwire 
  • Removable air padding for great push up 
  • Adjustable sides bikini bottom fit perfectly
I love this suit. My favorite feature is the adjustable sides on the bottom. Usually for me, the beach means day drinking and by the time it's over, I am hiding under a towel. I will NEVER look like the model in this pic but I did feel a sense of comfort wearing this suit on the beach. I did have to remove the air padding from the top. That's a whole different story about sudden weight gain!

The other two suits I considered were:

Polka Dots Strapless Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit

Ruched bandeau top with underwire offers support and lift. Optional halter straps provide extra support. Sultry tie back fits your figure perfectly. Comfortably controls your tummy so you feel confident and carefree under the sun!

  • Ruched bandeau top with underwire 
  • Optional, halter straps provide more support 
  • Side-boning centers
  • Tie back adjusts to your figure 
  • Super comfy tummy control 

Strapless Bandeau Top & Bikini Bottom Swimwear
Top offers removable padding and is gathered in the middle. Wear optional halter straps for more support or without for less tan lines. Bottom provides moderate coverage.

  • Strapless bandeau top with removable padding
  • Gathered centered adds volume
  • Optional halter straps
  • Moderate coverage bikini bottom

What are you doing to get beach body ready?

Leonisa sent me a bathing suit for review. As always all opinons are my own. I am strongly considering purchasing the polka dot bandeau out of my own wallet because I loved the suit I received so much.
