Fun in the Sun: The Orchid Boutique Swimwear Review

Posted by Jenna | Friday, June 03, 2011

If you've been a reader here for a while, you know that I love summer and being able to enjoy the warm weather with my family as much as possible. One of our favorite things to do is spend time in the water, which means finding swimsuits for us all. The problem is, with each year that passes, swimsuit shopping for me becomes less and less enjoyable. Finding something that is stylish, fits well and covers me in the places I want to be covered seems next to impossible sometimes. That's why I was happy to find some great swimwear options at The Orchid Boutique.
An online store for fashion-forward and style-savvy women, The Orchid Boutique offers the most exclusive designer swimwear, as well as a large selection of complementing items such as jewelry and beach handbags. By cherry-picking an elite group of unique designers, stylists carefully decide what brands to add to their selection. It's their goal to offer customers fabulous choices when it comes to fit, unique style, and quality!

When I first came across The Orchid Boutique, I was impressed with their stylish swimwear. Whether you're the type of person who likes to wear two-piece swimsuits or one-piece swimsuits...they have a unique and fashionable selection to choose from. As I searched through their one-piece swimsuits, I was instantly drawn to the classic and stylish look of the Draped Black One Piece by Badgley Mischka!


  • Draped design below bustline
  • Maillot provides built-in padding for shape and support
  • Thick shoulder straps
  • Bottom provides full coverage at the rear
  • Timeless elegant look
When the swimsuit arrived, I couldn't wait to check it out. As I pulled it out of the package, I was immediately impressed with the quality. This isn't your thin, cheaply made swimsuit. I could tell right away that the fabric is thick, well-made and something that will last me a long time! That's important, because a swimsuit gets a lot of use over the summer months especially...and I want something that I can enjoy wearing year after year.

I have to admit, when it came time to try it on, I was a little nervous. I never enjoy trying on swimsuits for fear of what I will think of it once I see it on. More often than not, I find myself discouraged by unflattering fit. Thankfully, that was not the case with this beautiful Badgley Mischka Swimsuit!

Once I had the swimsuit on, all of my nerves were calmed. The swimsuit fits great! I'm thankful for the fact that The Orchid Boutique makes it easy to know which size to get. There's a 'size & fit' section on each swimsuit page which helps a buyer understand how sizes run for that brand (large, small, or true to size). There's also a helpful size chart that I used as well. Since this swimsuit ran true to size, I went with the size chart and am very happy I did. It's snug enough that I know it will stay on well, yet very comfortable at the same time.

With two little ones pulling at me left and right, I need a swimsuit that covers me and will stay on well. This swimsuit definitely fits that criteria! The thick shoulder straps are not only stylish and add to the design of the swimsuit, but they also seem to stay in place which I love!

The swimsuit also covers me well. I was a little nervous that it might be too low cut, but found that the top of the suit covers me perfectly. The bottom provides full coverage as well. No more having to readjust my swimsuit every time I get up from a chair or out of the water! YAY!

Aside from the fact that this swimsuit fits and covers me well...I also love the design and style. I have owned some one-pieces in the past that are too simple and unflattering. The Draped Black One Piece Badgley Mischka swimsuit however, is very flattering. Between the maillot which provides built-in padding for shape and support and the draped design below bustline (which really makes the whole swimsuit if you ask me), this swimsuit definitely gives a look of timeless elegance. It's really beautiful and unique from other one-pieces. I am happy with the way it lays on me and feel that it's a very slimming style.

When it comes to swimsuits, finding quality, style and something that you feel comfortable wearing is worth paying a little more money for. I know I'll be able to enjoy this swimsuit for a long time and would definitely recommend The Orchid Boutique to others.
