SWIMSUIT GIVEAWAY!!!

The Swimsuit Goddess (AKA Modbe Clothing consultant Janae) is mindful of our suffering. She heard our wails of despair and has very generously stepped forward to save us from ourselves...and the unflattering and ill-fitting tankini/swimdress that is on layaway at T.J. Maxx.

GIVEAWAY TIME!
One lucky winner will win a swimsuit of her choosing from Modbe's wholesomely sexy line of swimwear!!!

banded bottom= no muffin top (always a good thing)


If there is one bad thing about Modbe swimsuits, it is that they don't multitask.

Contest starts NOW and ends THIS FRIDAY, April 3 at 12pm EST. To enter, simply leave a comment. For a second entry, link to this contest on your blog. The winner will be chosen at random and announced super soon after the contest ends.

Good Luck!

If you want to sponsor a future Mean Mom giveaway, contact me here.

LisaDuvall said...

Those are really cute! Enter me!

Heather said...

Do I get two entries for pity's sake? I'm 5'11", with an extra long torso, and I've already spent $60 in shipping from FOUR different companies to find something to fit my post-three-babies body! PLEASE pick me! :)

Kris said...

Oh I will use it so much living in Florida where we swim year round. I love modbe suits!

Kelly said...

I am so against muffin tops! Too bad after 5 kids that I have one. Cross your fingers for me. (For winning the swim suit and getting rid of my muffin top K?)

The Lemmings' Family said...

Very cute. Count me in too!

Melanie said...

I'm in!!!

musingsfromthemamabear said...

What a terrible opportunity. An old, stretched out thong is a much better option with which to display my post-childbirth body. It ensures preferred seating at the public pool with plenty of empty seats around me.

Becca said...

Wow--I really hope that your random chooser chooses Heather. Cuz she deserves a good suit. But enter me anyway! (Although no giveaway can ever really compare with the sweater hanging in my closet...)

Jen said...

Oh my goodness! I so desperately need to win this giveaway! Count me in!

Anonymous said...

this is the best thing anyone could ever do for a mommy that wants to look hot without the suffering!!!!! Last year I got the request from my dh "don't get something "too mommy-ish" then when I found something we both could live with - he told my I needed to tan b/c I was whiter than casper. Lots of love in that department!!!!

Thanks = Sarah

kimert said...

cool giveaway!! i'd love to be counted! thanks. :)

Just Another Hofeling said...

It would be nice to finally have a swimsuit to keep my muffin top in control, but seriously my mini pot belly is all the sexy anyone can handle. Yep you know it. :)

Yay!! I would love a cool new swimsuit!! Love your blog, btw!

Amber said...

Pick me - Pick me!

Heidi Noel said...

I can always use better swimsuit options. Even here where it is sunny year round options are limited.

Lori said...

I'm like Heather, 5' 10" and a long torso. I've never bought a swimsuit without trying it on because it's so hard to find one that fits nicely. But these suits look great! I might have to order one if I don't win.

Jenna said...

Alright! I thought I had no chance of a new suit this year but things are looking up!

Rebecca said...

I need it! BTW, love your blog, thanks for keepin' it real.

I could always use a new suit! By the way, I stumbled across your blog a couple of weeks ago and fell in love. I blame you for my family needing to wear dirty clothes last week!

TheQueen@TerrorsInTiaras said...

I wish I would have won this contest BEFORE I tried on every rag they call a swimming suit at Target. Pick me!

kim said...

I so need a new suit. I have a love/hate relationship with swimsuits. Love the pool love the beach, hate the suit. I would love to find one I could feel good about.

Amanda said...

When I saw the title of your post, I gasped and said I would never enter a giveaway for a swimsuit as I had too many experiences with just me, a swimsuit and a 3 way mirror. Ughhh! But then the words "no Muffin top" jumped off the page and I shouted I'm in! Please count me in!:)

Jan Russell said...

Love their cute swimsuits! And since I don't live in Utah, NO ONE else will have one!

Shannon said...

Win or lose, this mommy is going to have to have a new suit this year! I have lost 30+ lbs. since Thanksgiving! It's a nice change. I think I can mainly attribute it to stress and chasing my 3 little munchkins...nah, j/k...I'm training for a triathlon, so that helps! I hope I win...I need something to perk me up for this summer! Love your blog! It keeps me in stitches!

AzĂșcar said...

My current suit is an industrial affair. I'd love to have something that's actually CUTE.

Andy said...

Look, I know I'm a guy, but since I'm married to a pretty woman who has to fight the battle to find a decent swimsuit, I think I ought to be allowed an entry. Maybe two entries for having to try to hold my wife together and convince her that whatever she's found is good enough for public use, so lets take the kids swimming before they melt from the heat.

Vixie said...

These are cute swimsuits!! Please pick me...

Kari McMullin said...

I was checking out the modbe website after reading about it in your comments. Yeah, I'm up for a contest entrance!

jenyphrc said...

Ruth P. said...

Just found you recently - even though my 'kids' are grown up with kids of their own, I can relate! And I am stumped as to why one can't wear a bathing suit/bikini of one's choice, but then I grew up in Europe, where even wearing one may be optional.

the letter "J" said...

i'll take one of those please...haven't had a new suit in 3 years! UGH

gladiskuma said...

Please, count me in. I would love to have a new swimsuit!
Thanks

Shelli said...

Big fan of the tankini also, covers the stretch marks, but more forgiving than a one piece, please enter me! :)

Erika said...

I'm not going to be picked. Crap.


I'm trying out reverse psychology. Inside I'm really screaming "Pick me! Pick me! I will DIE without one..."

evitafjord said...

Too cute. If I will, I'll have a hard time deciding between one for me or one for my oldest daughter.

kadusey said...

The socks and roller skates are absolute necessities with those suits, of course.

The one problem with winning one of these suits is that then I wouldn't be able to show off the oddity that is my belly button area one year post baby to the entire world. There are hundreds of children that will be missing a wonderful opportunity to study a freak of a stomach (maybe it's a normal mommy stomach, I don't know, I imagine anybody who's stomach looks similar would take great pains to hide it from the world).

Great suits!! Sign me up. Thanks!!

The Queen said...

I'm crackin' up that at the end of this post there is an ad for a not so modest swim suit. Speaking of muffin top: couldn't wear THAT one if my life depended on it! Sign me up twice. I linked!
