Get Ready to Relax & Refresh with Target Swim!

What a phenomenal experience that I’ll never forget, thank you Target for inviting me to your “Get Ready to Relax & Refresh with Target swim event.” It was a spectacular sight to see, I learned all about Target’s resort wear collection, accessories, and beauty brands.

Target with it’s extensive swimwear line and summer gear is officially the headquarters for summer. As a mom it’s important that my swim suit stays in place because let's face it, we run a little harder after our little ones by the pool or at the beach and we don't want to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions. The last time I had bought a swimsuit was over 4 years ago, so being able to see these stunning styles that were fashionable and fun was uber cool. I love Target for many reasons, I walk into a Target store only wanting to buy one item however the joke is on me, I walk in with the best of intentions and leave with a shopping cart full of items. Target is my happy place, I can purchase my everyday necessities and now I can add swimwear and summer must haves to the checklist.

Target realistic approach that woman are beautiful and come in all shapes and sizes is refreshing, they have swimsuits for all sizes. Target’s latest swim campaign #TargetSwim features influential Plus-size model and body image activist Denise Bidot, on-air host Kamie Crawford, pro-skateboarder Lizzie Armanto and dancer, actress and YouTube sensation Megan Batoon.

Target believes every body is a beach body and wants you to love the way you look and feel in flattering and on-trend swimwear styles this season. Featuring swimsuits from Target’s exclusive lines including AVA & VIV, Merona, Mossimo and Xhilaration as well as Target’s first-ever bra-sized swimwear line, Shade and Shore, which was launched this past December.

Can’t get into the store, go online. Here are a few tidbits to help shop online because I know if I go to Target online I’ll fall down the rabbit hole. Know what size you're looking for, from what I’ve seen and tried on the swimsuits run true to size. Determine your size by your measurements and study the size chart on the website and read the body type recommendations. Also see what the review say to get feedback regarding sizing, this is what’s wonderful about Target, they have real feedback on their site. Order your favorite suit in at least 2 sizes and If you love the suit, but are really unsure what size is for you, order 3 sizes. Once you receive the suits try your swimsuits on in good lighting and when you’re in a good mood. Take your time, you're at home, there’s no need to rush to return the items. As long as you have the tags on it and with a receipt you’re able to return the items. See how you look and it makes how you feel. Jog in place and see if its stays put, personally I do jumping jacks to see if anything falls out. Now that you’ve chosen your swim attire you may return the extra by mail or at your local Target.
