Modest Bathing Suits @ Creations by Savannah! {review}

 Can you believe it's summer already?! Depending on where you live, this could mean the time for swimming, pools and beach vacays has come.
What do you wear for all this? It's genuinely hard to find adequate swimwear these days. Last year, I did a swimwear post about some of the modest suits I've found. For the most part, if you want to find a modest, feminine-looking suit you have to custom-order it online, and the options can be limited sometimes. Especially when the number of companies is few.
But then, I discovered a new modest-swimwear business I wasn't aware of, to add to the list!
Creations by Savannah is a small home-based business that provides different swimwear styles which are both adorable and modest. The swimsuits come in both ready-made and custom options, for girls, juniors and women. The prices are reasonable, considering the quality and amount of time (plus the fabric) that goes into making the suits.
Savannah generously sent me this suit to review which she'd already made. I was so excited because it just happened to fit my measurements. Took care of my needing-a-new-swimsuit-but-have-no-money-whatsoever issue! Booyah! Doesn't get much more awesome than that!
(Okay, so I posses zero modeling skills. And my farmer's tan is just plain ridiculous. Half the time if you put me in front of a camera I'll just make a weird face or do something awkward. I mean, I'm not against getting my picture taken, but I'm pretty sure I'm lacking photogenic-ness....)

The suit's construction is durable and the quality is evident. It's a two piece which makes it easy to put on and take off. The top has ruching up the sides and ends with strings you can tie. I think this is a cute effect. Reminds me of a surf top.

I love the fabric choice! It's really quite adorable. The fabric itself is that stretchy spandex-like swimwear fabric that dries really quick.
(One note, you have to wear a bra/bikini top underneath, because it's basically just like any other top only in swimwear fabric.)

I used to not like this length for swim leggings, but I've loosened up a little since then. I wouldn't go any shorter than this, and it took a little getting used to, but I like it. The skirt of course draws it all together. I really like the contrast it offers.
Overall, it's comfortable, classy and chic. Functionality is good except that you'd have to be careful not letting the shirt come up when doing a flip into the pool or other daring stunts. :P
Oh yeah, and I like that the top is sleeveless. Sleeves are all I've ever had on my suits. You end up getting the most predominant farmers' tans - and sunburns too, when you fail to use enough sunscreen....*cough* Okay so it's not the end of the world if you get a weird tan line, but to me it's kind of a random pet peeve thing. Anyhoo, I like sleeveless when I'm in the sun, so this is perf.

"That's right, this girl don't know how to pose."

"She does know how to be goofy, however..."

It's hard to have long hair during a typical Floridian summer. I can't leave it down or it turns into a sweat mop.

*is trying to conceal the fact that she's actually sweating pretty profusely - ah, a lake or pool would be nice right about now!*

Not sure what I was doing here. ^ Maybe it was the 105% humidity...
And then of course you have the unstrung recurve bow and arrows in the corner...yeah 'mon. *cue Caribbean/Bahamas voice*
The Dramatic Conclusion:
I absolutely love this suit! It fits perfect, looks adorable and isn't lacking on comfort or practicality. Best of all, it covers everything that I feel needs to be covered! I can see myself even purchasing another one in a different print/style, at some point. Definitely recommend this business and give it a double thumbs up! I have no complaints at all. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
Final words? Go check it out for yourself.

 Who said modest bathing suits had to be ugly, plain and boring?
