I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Swimdress shopping at Kohl's...

(The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!)
I'm so over winter. Over the snow, the cold temps and over the winter blues I've been having. We just booked a fun little getaway to an indoor waterpark to try and escape the frigid temperatures since warm weather seems so far away and that's made me search for the perfect swimsuit.
I'm a huge fan of the swimdress and found the perfect one at Kohl's. As a mom who doesn't have a perfect body it just seems to flatter me the most. It covers the right places, is stylish and the best for my body. So when I saw the Apt. 9 Zigzag Bandeau Swimdress online I knew I had to try it on and was so happy to find it in the store a few days ago.
Ahhhh I love everything about it and had to bring it home. From the ruffles on the bottom to the fun chevron print I knew it was the perfect suit for me. I love the ruched center and sides that help slim the stomach area, the option of having a halter strap or making it strapless and I love the molded cups that help give you shape even when you're not wearing much. The length is also perfect for hiding even more flaws. It's definitely a suit that I can feel confident in at the beach or at the waterpark with my kids. I feel comfortable in it and love that I don't have to compromise style while choosing a suit that is a little more conservative.  

If you love this suit make sure you check it out as it's on sale right now and available in plus sizes too!
Here are a few more of my fave swimdresses that Kohl's has available...
1. Apt. 9 Kaleidoscope Swimdress --love, love, love this one too! The color, the flattering neckline and the pattern are all so pretty and perfect for summer.
2. Apt. 9 Embroidered Underwire Bandeau Swimdress --black is always a great color when it comes to swimsuits. It's slimming and I love the gorgeous multicolored scalloped top.
3. Upstream Solid Hip Minimizer Tiered Swimdress --this is a true swim 'dress'. It's flowy, offers lots of layers and I'm loving this blue.
4. Last, but not least is the Chaps Palm Beach Dot Retro Halter Swimdress --I'm a sucker or polka-dots and this one offers lots of them, so cute!
Whether you're looking for a swimdress, a bikini, a one piece or tankini, Kohl's has a great selection of swimsuits going into the warmer months! Check them out by visiting...
