City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

OK, so I know it’s the middle of July and technically it’s been summer for almost a month but I still haven’t purchased a new swimsuit. The crazy New York weather we’ve been having hasn’t had making me think of bikinis and flip flops but more along the lines of galoshes and those hideous, unflattering yellow rain ponchos.

If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, we’ve hopefully come to your rescue with a sweet swimsuit giveaway from Aerin Rose Swimwear. The brand designs bra-sized swimsuits in cup-sizes B through G to provide support and comfort on the beach.

We’ve chosen their stylish Shirred Halter One-Piece (pictured), which is offered in Mocha, Black or a blue shade called Zinc. The style gives great support with the halter neckline but dips low enough to flatter a smaller chest size. There’s also a bit of shirring in the tummy to cover any bloat from a few too many beers on the beach and is slimming on all figures.

Simply send an email to with “Bikini Fun” in the subject line and be sure to include your name, telephone number and email. All entries must be received by Monday July 20th.

Other Aerin Rose products, including full figure and maternity suits as well as matching cover-ups, can be purchased at
