“Emerald Island” Modest Peplum Swimsuit

Remember that one time I did an Instagram poll about which Rey Swimwear swimsuit I should get for my trip to Hawaii?!

Well… Top Left and Top Right got the most votes so…. I combined them and got top right’s grey striped swimsuit top with the bottom right’s kelly green vintage bikini bottoms! I love the final result: a modest peplum swimsuit with an adorable striped peplum top and emerald green vintage bikini bottoms!

I love the color combo of this Rey Swimwear swimsuit combo against the beautiful Hawaii resort! I even picked out this green cover-up from the Polynesian Cultural Center to match!

What I liked: My favorite part about this swimsuit is it’s neckline! It’s not too high and not too low, perfect for actually playing in the pool! It’s so hard to find swimsuits like this that you can actually play in without showing cleavage! Lucky for us Rey Swimwear has this and tons more options where this came from! I love the built-in bra shelf! Very supportive and comfortable! I love the location of the adorable peplum ruffle too! I also liked the way I mixed and matched these two pieces to create this suit! Rey Swimwear has this top displayed with yellow bottoms (I don’t love yellow) but they also sell these gorgeous emerald green bottoms so I picked these! I like the way the bottoms come up high so that even when I was moving around, swimming, or bent over you still couldn’t see my back or stomach. Winner!

What I didn’t like: The tricky thing about this top is because it’s white it’s lined (of course) but it’s lined with a nude fabric which does it’s job so that it’s not see-through. However, once it’s wet, it appears as though it’s see-through because the nude shows through just as your skin would. But it’s not. It’s made of a cotton-y fabric that shows water splatters quite easily. I also didn’t love the particular cut of these bottoms around the legs.

The Founder of Rey Swimwear is Jessica Rey. (I got to meet her a few months back at our first ever Queen Bee blogger event in SLC.) You may have seen her viral video about modesty called “The Evolution of the Swimsuit.” If you haven’t, it’s a must-see!

Since then, modesty advocate Jessica Rey has written this incredibly beautiful book about modesty called Decent Exposure. I bought a copy and it’s truly beautiful in both word and design! It’s hardcover and each page is uniquely designed and oh so colorful! (It’s my dream to write a book like this one day!)
