I rarely order online and never write reviews, but this one deserves it. At 24 weeks, I suddenly became too tight in my normal swimsuit and needed something urgent for laps. As I'm in Canada, exchange on US products proved unbelievable, as suit listed at $40US would at currency exchange and shipping cost balloon to $120... for a proposed delivery date a month away! Though from Australia, Cake Maternity listed the product in Canadian dollars for me and when it came to shipping, for $15 sent it courier via UPS. I got the swimsuit in 4 business days, right after new years.
As for the product, many reviews for the tankinis I was looking at on other sites complained that the fabric was cheap and dissolved with regular wear, making it inconvenient for women who are in the pool multiple times a week. This suit's tag guarantees chlorine resistance, and I appreciate the 30 day return policy so that upon receiving it I could decide for myself whether I believed its promise. The material is high quality. I ordered XL out of fear that by late pregnancy I wouldn't fit into anything else. So it is somewhat loose around the belly (with rouche), but I have totally been able to wear it at 24 weeks without drag in the water. There are shaped breasts supports, but they didn't hinder my movement (as a women's whose chest is on the bigger side, not flying out on the sides is much appreciated).
I am floored, because I paid less for a superior product that suits a length-swimming/swim instructor women that can last me well into late pregnancy, shipped efficiently and reliably. I'm not stocking up on a loads of maternity gear, but I'll hit up this company again when I need something.
I am so relieved that in this time of saving all my pennies for baby, I made a good investment. Thanks!
