About This Quiz

Have you ever heard the Cinderella story? It's one as old as time. Her fairy godmother magically appeared in her room and gave her the perfect dress to wear to the ball. Well, think of us as your fairy godmother, but for swimsuits. We are here to give you the perfect swimsuit to wear to the big summer pool party, the beach or anywhere! We don't have a magic wand; we're not going to show up in your room with sparkles and singing mice and sorry, there isn't a pumpkin wagon outside. What we do have is this entertaining quiz with some amusing questions that will give us insight into what bathing suit is right for you. There are so many styles available, it's almost impossible not to find the perfect one. 

Today, people can wear whatever bathing suit they want, but there was a time when the police heavily regulated what women wore to the beach. Wearing the wrong clothing to swim could've landed you in jail! Can you imagine going to jail for wearing a bikini? Load up the wagons! Let's be honest, you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but there are swimsuits that are designed with specific body types in mind. So, sit back, relax and answer some fun questions!
