Almost that Time…Swim Suit Season!

Good evening beautiful people! So with it still being winter, swim suits are probably the last thing on your mind. But I am here to guide you on where to shop and how to be confident in showing off those curves for the summer time! For my body type (I’m bigger in butt, hips, thighs and breast and smaller in the waist by a few inches.) It’s hard to find something that fits me appropriately; either something is too loose or too tight. As well, I used to be skeptical about wearing swim suits before coming to college, because I really wasn’t exposed to women my size wearing swim suits, let alone 2 pieces! But I must say it’s a BEAUTIFUL and ENCOURAGING thing to see. So with that being said, don’t think you have to cover up all of that goodness for the summer time, embrace your body and celebrate what you have!

Below are a few sites I found have great swim suits for women sizes 12 and up:

1. Do separates! Mix up your tops and bottoms to how you want them to fit

2. You will most likely spend between $20-$40

3. High-waist bottoms are your FRIEND!

4. Wear kimono style cover ups or make your own!

Well, that’s all for now lovelies, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment or go to my connection page to stay in touch. Let me know your thoughts too:)
