It is getting to be that time of year when you might need to start shopping for a new swimsuit or two. Summer is right around the corner and so are summer vacations and trips to the pool. But hopefully, Costco can make the dreaded swimsuit purchase a little bit easier this year, and maybe even more satisfying. I really hate swimsuit shopping, so anything that makes it less annoying, is a good thing in my eyes.
I was perusing the Costco.com website this morning when I noticed that they now have a line of Kirkland Signature swimsuits. Even better, they are made by Miraclesuit. So, what makes these swimsuits so miraculous? Here’s a quick explanation from the Miraclesuit website:
Look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 seconds®… the time it takes to slip on a Miraclesuit®
The Miraclesuit® heritage of fit, form and function begins with our unique and innovative fabric, Miratex®. Exclusively ours, this fabric delivers three times the control of ordinary swimwear fabrics, without relying on inner linings and constrictive control panels to shape and trim. The high concentration of Lycra spandex means that Miraclesuit®’s keep their shape… and yours.
They also do some very smart design tricks that keep you looking slimmer, even without the miracle fabric. The Kirkland Signature swimsuit has a wrap top design which is flattering to just about every figure, plus it has a bit of ruching at the side to do a little clever camouflaging action too. At Costco you can find five different fabric patterns to choose from, all of which are quite nice in my opinion, though I probably like the Dippin’ Dots and Happy Place designs best. Here are some of the features:
- Miraclesuit® is constructed to shape and contour the body
- Surplice neckline
- Scoop back
- Built-in soft cup bra
- No bulky linings or girdles
- Innovative fabric, Miratex® provides triple the holding power
- Sizes 8 – 18
- Back and Underfront: 54% Spandex / 46% Nylon
- Front Drape: 83% Nylon / 17% Spandex
One of the designs is a bit different with a square neckline, adjustable straps and a hidden underwire bra, but is is still made with the same fabric. It’s actually the Happy Place fabric that I like. You could get two swimsuits with a different design so you wouldn’t even feel like you’re wearing the same suit all the time. And all for less than a single Miraclesuit swimsuit would cost you someplace else.
If you’re familiar with the Miraclesuit lineup, you’re probably also familiar with their rather high price tag of around $100 and up for a suit. So, here’s the best part about getting your Miraclesuit at Costco: it’s just $34.99, including shipping! And if you can get them in your local warehouse, they should be even a bit cheaper there. I am really amazed at the price because these are normally so expensive and the price at Costco is reasonably inexpensive even if this were just a run of the mill cheaply made suit. I know I’ve easily paid this much for swimsuits that didn’t do anything miraculous for my figure.
Generally, everything I’ve read about the Miraclesuit swimsuits is that they actually live up to the hype and do make you look slimmer. Plus, they’re even comfortable enough to swim in and wear for more than ten minutes. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a swimsuit that you felt comfortable in and made you look good too? What a nice change! I think it is even better when you don’t have to pay a fortune. That way you’ll have money left over for a fancy poolside drink.
So, if you’ve got a beachy vacation coming up or you just want a comfortable suit to take your kids to the pool, you should certainly think about getting one of these from Costco. Happy swimming!
