#220 – Giveaway: What Suits You

Lycra. Nylon. Striped. Print. Solids. Cross-Back. U-Back. Bra. Shelf-Bra. Two-Piece. As my aquatic years float by, I've had more than a gym bag full of suits.

This morning as I jumped - yes, jumped into my suit! - I realized how easy it was to put on my new BeanSport® Tank, courtesy of L.L.Bean.

A U-Back with Shelf-Bra is what suits me best. (Pun intended!) For appendages that are ravaged by the destructive forces of rheumatoid arthritis, the U-Back doesn't require the twisting and wiggling, gripping and pulling that is de rigeur with some of the other models.

Over the years, many of my favourite swimsuits have been L.L. Bean U-Backs. I don't know how they did it, but they were able to improve on an already great swimsuit! Did I tell you that I love this suit!?

What's even better, is that thanks to the generosity of L.L. Bean, one of my lucky readers will have the opportunity to get in the swim with their very own BeanSport® Tank! Please click on over to LL. Bean and choose your style; you'll want to be ready when your name is drawn from the hat!

All you have to do to take part in this giveaway is to leave a comment describing your favourite swimming spot.

You have until midnight PST on Monday, April 30th, 2012 to get your name into the hat. This offer is open to anyone with a Canadian or U.S. mailing address.

Congratulations to Nan, who was the winner of my previous L.L. Bean giveaway!

  1. I loved the swimbadds in Germany. They had several different pools so I could find one with warmer water so my muscles didn’t tense up so much. And the kids loved all the fun fountains.

  2. My favorite Swimming Hole is in Central Oregon at a resort called Kah-Nee-Tah. It is a huge Olympic sized pool heated by natural hot springs. It is glorious. I have been going there since I was little. THe warm water, bright sun and incredible blue sky – I could just live in the water all day… sigh… Wish I was there right now…

  3. OH my! As you know if you have read my blog swimming is my lifeline…I swim 2-3 times per week and I go through suits very fast….I swim at a local indoor facility but when we travel it is always a must that a pool be part of the plan for where we stay….I have not ever had an LL Bean suit but it sounds wonderful…I tend to get mine on Amazon and usually I get a Speedo or Ocean suit. I love the idea of the U back and with my shoulders lately that would be amazing….fingers crossed! Nan

  4. My favourite swimming spot is Port Franks, Ontario. I love to swim in the still waters at sunset–so breath taking!

  5. My favourite swimming spot is a beach about 15 mintues away from my house. It has beautiful sunsets too!


  6. I love the watering hole up at our summer place in the Muskokas! It is beautiful and rustic and even comes complete with a family or two of beavers!

  7. Nan, if I were you, I’d go buy a lottery ticket! 🙂 I just drew your name for the L.L. Bean swimsuit.Congratulations!

    Thank you to everyone who entered. Please note that the Gadget Tuesday series is still open and that there will be other giveaways to come.

  8. Love, Love, Love the suit Marianna!!! I am going to get another soon as I use them for my swim workouts 3 times a week and it is nice to have a couple to use. The quality of the suit is wonderful and it very comfortable for working out in the water – laps, water jogging, strength training…it is all good another hit L.L. Bean!
