Right? In BC times, a woman can relax on a beach chair, maybe go for a dip in the pool or ocean if she gets too hot, sip a drink in peace and read a magazine cover to cover. In AC (After Children) times, however, us moms spend our time getting in and out, in and out, in and out of the water, crouching in the sand, reapplying sunscreen, fretting over our kids' swimming abilities, etc, etc.
With all that, the list of what I'm looking for when it comes to swimwear has gotten pretty long. Quality, style, fit, coverage, price, and the overall way that I feel when wearing it... can all of that be found in one place?
For this summer and beyond, now I know it can with Dry Dudz.
Active wear, swimwear and trendy attire all-in-one, Dry Dudz patented technology ensures exceptional support and quick drying performance, without sacrificing style. This unique apparel is available for both men and women, whether outdoor enthusiasts or just those that enjoy being comfortable and fashionable throughout their activities outside.
For men, Dry Dudz boardshorts come in five contemporary graphic designs, stylish enough to serve as upscale casual wear. At the same time, women's options include trunks, boy shorts and bikinis that can be worn for running, swimming, tennis, relaxing and more.
Ready to put this innovative activewear to the test, I was impressed with Dry Dudz before I even had their pieces out of the bag.
Every Dry Dudz purchase comes in their custom Wet Dudz Dry Bag, which is great for travel, storage and more. I love when companies take that extra step to make their products even more useful for their customers and this waterproof bag does just that!
Pulling the Women's Hybrid Boardshort and Bikini Bottom out, I could tell right away that these lightweight, relaxed pieces were going to be just the thing for me.
The double stitching construction and polyester/spandex combination makes them both very soft, versatile and adjustable, while the innovative 115 gram polyester weave makes them barely have any weight at all.
As I examined the boy shorts closer, it was clear that the DD Quick Dry wikTec fabric liner is truly as breathable and quick-drying as Dry Dudz claims. Considering that no one really enjoys sitting in a soggy swimsuit, having material that wicks away moisture from the inside out is a great way to feel more comfortable with dry skin all day long.
At the same time, the yoga style waistband allows the wearer to customize whether they would like more or less top coverage, with a cute "Get Your Dudz On" message seen on the back when folded down.
As well as their comfort and fit, these bikini bottoms incorporate Dry Dudz' innovative Quick Mount System, a patented attachment system that securely clips each pair of shorts to its inner liner with a Velco-like hold. What a great way to not have to worry about hiking up your shorts every time you stand up, sit down or get out of the water!
Perfect for land and water activities all summer long, I have been nothing but impressed with the way that Dry Dudz has mixed fashion with functionality in these women's swim bottoms — they even have an anti-bacterial treatment that prevents odor and helps reduce wash time.
The combination of the boy shorts and boardshorts is one that I plan on utilizing for many trips to the beach and pool and I only wish that Dry Dudz offered tankini tops along with their bikinis so that those of us who just aren't willing to show off our stomachs to the world could have that option as well. Until then, I can easily pair this with one of my other swim tops and I'm set to hit the beach!
Dry Dudz can be purchased on their website at DryDudz.com, where the bikini bottoms are currently on sale for $15 - $20, the Hybrid Boardshorts for $30 - $35 and the bikini tops for $15.99. Men's pieces are also on sale, with the inner lining retailing between $9.99 - $20 and their Hybrid Boardshorts between $25 - $40.
You can also find out more about all of these unique, stylish and convenient pieces by connecting with Dry Dudz on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Other than the Dry Dudz bottoms that I was provided in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this review in any way. This post is solely my honest opinion of this product.
