Shopping for swimwear has never been a favorite activity of mine. As the Editor-in-Chief of DailyVenusDiva.com I’m very aware of ALL of my options but as a plus size woman, I hesitated wearing a swimsuit for fear of having my lady lumps on display. When going swimming was on my agenda, I would typically wear a one piece and a cover-up in the pool simultaneously.
For years I’ve vowed to start swimming, doing water aerobics and just becoming a more active person all together. When Hydrochic contacted me I thought to myself, “Finally a brand that gets ‘IT'”.
When Hydrochic gave me an opportunity to wear and review two pieces from their collection I selected the Plus Size Rash Guard Swim Shirt – Ultra and the Plus Size Bike & Swim Shorts – Ultra.
Once I received my Hydrochic activewear in the mail, I was super excited until the thought of wearing swimwear started to freak me out again. You would think that working with so many amazing plus size women daily I would have enough courage to overcome my fear of wearing swimwear but that’s easier said than done. It took me about a month to review my new swimwear after receiving it in the mail.
Then it got HOT and I wanted to go swimming!
Not only do I love the look of the rash guard swim shirt but I love the way it just glides onto my body as it is made specifically for me. I selected the bike & swim shorts because of it’s length. The bike & swim shorts hit right above my knee and it fit me perfectly.
Hydrochic activewear has many advantages:
- Light Weight Material
If you’re hesitant to hop into the pool wearing a shirt and shorts, don’t think about it. Because it’s so light weight, it dries up very easily.
- Chlorine Resistant
Normally chlorine can be damaging to your clothing but with these items being chlorine resistant, they’re made for the pool.
- Padded Sports Bra
If you’re concerned about your chest, Hydrochic has you covered. The shirt comes with a padded sports bra so you can feel comfortable wearing their activewear. I’m very busty so the padded bra didn’t work for me but I love the concept.
Overall, I’m very satisfied with my new activewear. Now that I’m no longer a Hydrochic virgin, I will be enjoying the pool (wearing my new swimsuit) for the entire summer!
