Voda Envy Swimwear (Envy Push up) - Review and Giveaway!

 



Voda Swim is a company created by international model Yulia Drummond and her husband, which offers gorgeous, high-end swimwear with a bit of a boost. The most unique aspect of Voda Swim is their patent-pending, revolutionary Envy Push Up tops. The Envy Push Up swimwear is designed to subtly and naturally enhance cleavage, while remaining comfortable without under wiring. It is perfect for amplifying small breasts, or for providing a great firm and supported structure for larger breasts. It is not only a bikini for sun-bathing, but for any beach activity you can think of...from swimming to beach volleyball. It is made of a special material which does not absorb as much water, allowing it to hold its shape throughout the day. Voda Swim has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Glamour, and many other popular magazines.

Voda Swim offers swimwear in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors. They have Adjustable Bandeau tops, a regular Bandeau, an Adjustable Swim Skirt, Cover Up Skirts, Double String push up bikinis, padded Halter top and Scoop bikinis, Hoop Halter pushup bikini tops, Hoop push up String bikinis, Lace push-up String bathing suits, Monokinis, Natural Stone push up Halter bikinis, Natural Stone String bikinis, Ruched Lace bikinis, Ruffle bikinis, Shirred One Piece swimsuits, String bikinis, Tankinis, and Wavy String padded bikinis. In addition to almost every solid color, Voda Swim also has prints such as polka dots, safari, paisley, and island-themed. Prices range from $25.00 (for cover up skirts) to $137.00 (for some of the Natural Stone push-up halter swimsuits).

  I received the Envy Push Up Natural Stone Halter & Scoop to review. I chose the "Midnight" black bikini top complete with turquoise stones, and the "Midnight" Turquoise Stone Scoop bottoms to match. Voda Swim makes it easy to choose a bathing suit that not only matches your style, but also your comfort level. They have a search engine that lets you browse by "bottom coverage" and "bottom cut". This was incredibly important to me when choosing my suit, as I prefer one that has moderate-full coverage on the bottom and isn't extremely low cut. There isn't anything I hate more than a bathing suit which rides up when you get in and out of the water -- I don't want to have to worry about what it might look like every second!

When you are shopping, Voda Swim also has a convenient fitting guide (size chart) that helps you decide which pieces to purchase. The top goes by your bra size, and the bottoms go both by your dress size and hip size. If you find that you are between sizes, they recommend going up for comfort in your padded swimsuit and down for a sexier look. To give you an idea of how the sizing works, I am a 34C and I have a dress size of 4. I selected a Large for the padded triangle bikini top (as suggested by the fitting guide) and a Medium for the bottom. The fitting guide suggested a Small for the bottom based on my dress size.. however, I feel like I have curvy hips compared to my waist. I chose the Medium because I like my bathing suit bottoms to be comfortable and have extra coverage. If you are comfortable with a tight, lower fit, then I would definitely stick to the guide!

The Envy Push Up Natural Stone Halter & Scoop bathing suit is simple, yet sexy and classy at the same time. The "Midnight" shade would be flattering on most body types. I loved the contrast of the 14K gold plated turquoise stones against the black fabric. Here is the description of the suit pictured below, as pulled from Voda Swim's website:

Who says you can't wear jewelry to the beach? A pair of natural stone jewelry pieces set in 14K gold grace the tops of the cups and also on the sides of the bottoms.
  • Jewelry: 14K gold plated chlorine & salt water resistant
  • Body: nylon/spandex, lining: polyester/spandex
  • Fully lined
  • Top: ties at neck and back
  • Bottom: moderate coverage
 If you have another favorite stone, or base color for your bathing suit, the Natural Stone Halter & Scoop is also offered in Pearl (white) with a Natural Green Aventurine stone, Indigo Shimmer with a Natural Golden Topaz, Sahara Shimmer (grey) with a Natural Black Agate, and Cocoa (brown) with a Natural Turquoise stone. This particular bathing suit retails for $132.00 -- the top is $79.00, and the bottoms are $53.00.


My bathing suit came only a few days after I ordered it; I was very impressed with the shipping time and the communication that Voda Swim upheld. I tore open the package and immediately (after taking pictures of it with the tags still intact) put it on. I am not usually a huge fan of ANY bathing suit bottom, but this one had a rather comfortable fit. The top almost feels non-existent. It really gives you room to breathe! For once, I didn't feel like my breasts were being either squished or flattened. Some bathing suits give our top halves a strange shape -- this can be the direct result of a lack of structure/padding, or simply the design of the straps. I have had bathing suits that pull apart at the middle, and do absolutely NOTHING in the way of creating cleavage or enhancing my top. Other bathing suits are shaped in such a way that they compress whatever is there, creating one continuous line. On the other end of the spectrum, I have also seen bathing suits which are so OVERLY padded and lined with wire that they look more like bras...and sort of ridiculous when you are parading around at the beach. This type of bathing suit does not appear to be comfortable, or to hold up well if you are planning on doing a lot of swimming. 

The Envy Push Up Natural Stone Halter top finds the perfect medium between both extremes. It is designed in such a way that it keeps your breasts rounded and upright. It does not allow for sagging, and it definitely doesn't give you a strange shape. At the same time, the lack of under-wire but the addition of padding keeps it firm, feeling good, and secure. The cleavage that the Envy Push Up does create is natural -- even though it does a great job of amplifying your cup size compared to regular bathing suits, it is something you will be proud to wear. It doesn't look like you have stuffed your bathing suit top, and it doesn't look fake at all. I feel like it would hold up well in the water, given the feel of the fabric and the overall design. In the pictures below, I am giving you a glimpse of the difference that the Envy Push Up makes.. don't just take my word for it, but see it too! In the first picture, I am wearing a regular bathing suit top from Victoria's Secret. It tends to flatten my chest, and isn't as round, emphasized, or sophisticated looking as the Envy Push Up padded swimwear. You can see that the Envy Push Up adds a little extra spark. Finally I have found a bathing suit that doesn't make my top disappear altogether! I am very happy with the results, and I would definitely recommend this product.

Okay, I am certainly no bikini model, but here is a before and after for proof!!
