emerald green showstopperLet’s get brave here. Would you dare pose in a new swimsuit? OK, but it better be worth it, right? Because the summer travel season is upon us!

Albion sent one for me to try out and… (shhh… I’m very happy to report I received a large and I need a smaller size!)

This AlbionFit.com swimsuit is magic; I swear when I put it on I lose 10 pounds instantaneously!

Sorry, The pounds jump right back on when the suit is removed… dang.

When I first saw it I began making a fuss on Twitter and sharing it with everyone in shouting distance. It’s CHEVRON people! I’m in love with chevron for everything from bathroom curtains to baby dresses and now… women’s fitness and swimwear!
