For Your Honeymoon : vintage-inspired swimsuits by Shabby Apple

I'm loving the brand new Aquamaids line of swimsuits from Shabby Apple. The collection features ruffled necklines and wraparound bows to accent the waistline. This vintage-inspired line of swimsuits come in classic polka dots, stripes, pastels, retro ginghams and there's even black and white zebra print. Bright colors, fun prints and vintage flair will be the hot trend this summer for swim wear, and maybe your honeymoon too.

Fanciful, Feminine Swimwear from Shabby Apple

With summer officially starting today, it's time to think about swimwear and finding the perfect swimwear to flatter your body, especially on your honeymoon. Whether it's a 2-piece of 1-piece, you might want to check out Shabby Apple. Who knew a one piece could be so stylish and figure-friendly?

The Shabby Apple Boutique has released their swim line that consists of feminine ruffles, bows, twists and braids in mix and match tankinis as well as one-piece swimsuits that flatter every body type. Lots of whites, pinks, blues and reds make up this collection that ranges in price from approximately $70-80. Co-owner of Shabby Apple, Athelia Woolley, says, "Few women relish in the idea of finding a bathing suit. Often concerns about body type cloud the shopping experience and women are left to purchasing a swimsuit that's focus is more on being flashy than flattering. This line of swimwear unites what's 'hip' with what's 'flattering'." The swimwear line from Shabby Apple is designed so that the cuts and styles of the suits as well as the fabric hold in bumps and bulges in the midsection. Shelf bras and optional padding will lend support and curve to the bustline.

Shabby Apple is an American online dress boutique that focuses on helping women dress for their body shape - they provide detailed information on the styles, cuts and fabrics that flatter various body types. Plus,  they have a great selection of coordinating accessories and even great options for bridesmaids dresses and dresses to bring with you on your honeymoon.
