Win a Miraclesuit®, the perfect swimsuit for women over 50–just in time for summer travel!

Let’s face it. I never did and never will look like the young women we saw sunbathing at the beach in Nice, France.

I’m not alone. One study suggests that 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies. Moreover, I suspect this dissatisfaction becomes more pronounced with advancing age and intensifies as warm weather approaches and we need to squeeze into our bathing suits.

Post-menopausal weight gain is common among women over-50. Also, losing weight becomes an increasingly difficult battle as we age. So as summer approaches, finding a new bathing suit can be traumatic.

In recent years, Miraclesuits have been my go-to choice because they are the most flattering to my “full figure.” I first found them in Bloomingdale’s but they’ve become so popular now that you can find them in most department and specialty shops as well as online.

Granted, the miracle bathing suit advertisement almost sounds to be too good to be true:

“Look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds.”

But I kid you not. The suit delivers on its promise to contour, shape, slim and firm the body—it works for me.

One secret: These suits have three times more spandex than standard swimsuits without adding extra bulk. They also cater to the needs of the over-50 women for better breast support with soft cups, hidden underwires, and foam bras—depending on the particular swimsuit style.

I always throw a bathing suit into my suitcase before a trip because each time I forgot—or thought I wouldn’t need one—I was mistaken. You never know when you’ll discover an alluring indoor or outdoor pool at a hotel or resort. Even when you least expect it, the weather on a cruise can suddenly turn nice enough to tempt you to sit on the deck or dive into the pool.

So I was over the moon when Miraclesuit® offered to send me a free swimsuit for review—and give away swimsuits to THREE readers of MoreTimeToTravel.com.

Here’s the picture of the swimsuit that I chose: Miraclesuit Color Code Oceanus. The first picture shows it hanging on my closet door before our recent trip to Italy.

The second one, if you didn’t guess, is shown on a professional model. While I don’t quite look like her, I feel confident about wearing my new swimsuit wherever my travels take me. I think it is the perfect swimsuit for women over 50 (or even those who are younger)!
