To Die For Swimwear Review - Why i won't support them



Hey guys here’s an interesting one for you!

Todays review is about To Die For Swimwear

I approached them to ask if they wanted me to promote them, they forwarded me onto another person who said I could do a giveaway if I liked. The staff member sent me images and the text to write in a post and said that if I was to receive a free bikini for my hard work I needed 300 people to join my giveaway. I had over 200 people enter. They never once gave me a list of rules to follow. I’ve check the emails 3 times!
I shared my giveaway all over instagram and lost access to several features in the process because I use it A LOT already so doing this giveaway put extra strain on my usage. Many of my followers shared the giveaway as well!
My followers informed me that they were told to stop spamming because I was disqualified already. They never told me I was disqualified at all. In fact – I’m still waiting for a reply to my email asking why I as disqualified. 

It was the worst blogging and social media decision I have made so far, they practically got a whole days’ worth of free publicity out of me for nothing.  Today they gained at least 200,000 followers from their giveaways which were held all over instagram.
I am deeply saddened that I wasn’t properly informed of all the “rules” they expected me to follow.  It was a poorly orchestrated promotional event and I will definitely be more careful of doing this in the future! I will not be holding anymore giveaways.
Unfortunately this means I will never work with them again, and I’m sorry to all those who asked – I’m not reviewing their products either. While they do donate money to help with eating disorders I will not support them or buy from them.

    1. They then told me in the email saying I was disqualified that I could do it again next month. I don't think so! I told them not to contact me again. It was awful!

  9. Omg I have a big insta too and I can't believe the nerve of them. They asked me to promote as well w a contest and I thought it was the biggest bs ever. They need to piss off!

  10. Wow I was wondering how come there were so many people hosting giveaways for this swimwear brand and promoting their giveaways everywhere then deleting their posts after or announcing a fake winner which username does not exist. Now I know. Thanks for sharing. Will not support this brand!

  13. I actually just had a collab with them and reached the amount of participants needed and then just got my bikini in the mail today. Sad to hear about that happening to you tho! But I think that they´re quite strict with you having to reach the exact limit to get a free bikikini. My friend did a collab with them too and didn´t get the "set limit" of participants but she got a 80% off their whole site and free shipping :O

  14. They didn't give me all the information that was required to work with them. Their customer service was disgusting by the end of it. I've seen the same thing happen to so many other girls doing a collab with them, they didn't get all the info or they just didn't get sent their bikinis at all, or the winner was a fake account. They're so not worth it in my eyes, i didn't even feel their bikinis were original - there's another brand out there that does the exact same style and i'm pretty sure they did it first - beach bunny swimwear i think.

    1. Wow they didn't ask me to do a contest but they told me if I posted their pics and used this promo code once three people purchased a bikini using my code I would receive a free one. I had everyone that ordered send me a screen shot of their order confirmation had six people buy suits and then I never got anything so I sent them a dm on Instagram they sent me a screen shot of a computer with my promo code said 0 sales I sent them the screen shots I had and they never answered me. They told me in one reply that they can't just give away their suits for free unless they know it will benefit them. They are scamming I had advertised for them and got them 6 sales. Sad no suit and it's sad what they did to you. I always see those contests and enter never met anyone who won but have met a few girls who got free suits. Not sure why only some qualify
