It may be the dead of winter, but there’s no time like the present to prepare for the warmer months ahead – or better yet, plan a tropical getaway to recover from a vacation. Just recently, I packed my bags and flew to the beautiful island of Kauai to rest, relax and rejuvenate, as well as test some new swimwear that I had been watching online for several months now.
You’ve probably seen the incisive ads featuring TA3 swimwear, the innovative new brand that promises to smooth, sculpt and flatter your figure with its elegant, patent-pending one-piece styles. With a lace-up back design that pulls your waist off, these understated solid-color suits look pretty average at first glance, but actually offer so much more once you buckle up. It goes without saying that the convincing social media posts Immediately piqued my interest, but it wasn’t until the brand offered to send me my own costume that I was able to determine if the $ 178 price tag was justified.
With a TA3 Plunge suit in tow, I transformed my Hawaiian vacation (which included fun activities like sunbathing, swimming, hiking, and exploring the Makauwahi cave reserve) in the ultimate proving ground. I stayed at the picturesque Koloa Landing Complex, who was awarded “The best swimming pool in America” for years in a row and have taken full advantage of the amenities. The sumptuous tropical oasis offered several sparkling pools, water slides, romantic caves, idyllic waterfalls and much more, and I wasted no time lacing up my TA3 plunging swimsuit make a splash upon my arrival.
The overall adjustment of the mega-sculptor costume was perfect, and I’ve found that the tighter you tie, the slimmer your waistline and the more lifted your girls look. As a mid-rise woman with a loose bust and fuller waist, this moderately sexy figure worked wonderfully on my figure and I felt like a million bucks in it. It didn’t take long for me to notice that this was probably the most flattering single piece of all time, thanks to the ultra-matte compression fabric and the aforementioned heavy-duty fasteners that really hold you.
Hello, instant hourglass.
I felt so confident in my costume that I found countless ways to fit it into my wardrobe as a versatile staple as well. I paired it with a stylish wrap skirt for a night out on the island and wore it under a rashguard for extra support while riding an all-terrain vehicle on an epic stunt tour with Kauai mountain biking. On the last day of vacation I found myself so comfortable in this miracle worker that I completely ditched my blanket and strutted from my hotel room at the bar to the tranquility pool, clothed only Plungey suit and a pair of sandals. If you know me, this is practically unheard of behavior.
This is going to show you that this glamorous swimsuit deserves a gold medal, and the boost of confidence it provides is downright priceless. The TA3 suits are available in two torso lengths and a few different styles, including the plunging, one more modest jersey style, or one more daring costume with mesh details and an alluring zipper on the front, if that’s more your speed.
Take it from me, once you try one TA3 swimsuit, you will never look back.
