Temperatures rising, days are longer, translation? Summer is almost here. Time to hastily pack away the ever fabulous thigh high boots, cozy cardigans, and fashionable tights to make room for the breezy linens, flirty skirts, sassy maxis and gladiator sandals. The change of weather, the sun kissing your skin, and the change of a fashion season are all reasons why I love the summer- all but one thingâ€¦.
Something about summer brings forth my deepest insecurities. When the sun is glaring and the heat is unbearable, there is only one place to go- the beach! Immediately, I turn into a â€œfrumpy fashionâ€ donâ€™t, who would gladly receive three wolf tickets for my fashion infractions. If you were to peek into my beach bag, youâ€™d be surprised at what youâ€™d find: a manâ€™s wife beater, a pair of shorts and an old bra and panty set. Mhhmm, you heard me! I know you are wondering, how can you be fashionable wearing that? Easily, I havenâ€™t been- or at least when it came to swimsuits. Trust me, plus size swimsuits donâ€™t flatter me; or at least thatâ€™s what I always thought. How wrong I wasâ€¦
I have finally found a swimsuit to cater to my lovely size 20/22 lady lumps.
Swimsuits for All, was one of the first websites I found (I know, I know- Marie is gonna kill me for not knowing- butÂ IÂ just knew me and swimsuits do not mix). They have tankini swimsuits, one piece swimsuits, and mix and match combinations (such as tank top matched with a brief bottom or a skirt bottom). The selections are vast and unlimited. I donâ€™t know why I didnâ€™t know about this site before!
Angst filled my belly, knowing that I had to endure this challenge, to review this swimsuit. When my swimsuit arrived, I immediately ran to my bedroom. Nervous and scared, I questioned if this swimsuit would flatter me. As I stepped into the mirror with my eyes closed, I slowly chanted:
â€œThis is it! Swimsuit This. Is. It. This. Is. It.â€
On the count of three, I opened my eyes to seeâ€¦.
This beautiful Beach BelleÂ Domino Plus Size Empire Swimdress Swimsuit . This swimwuitÂ is the bomb! Primarily because it accentuates my waist and maintains a defined shape. The second best thing I love about the swimsuit is that it minimizes the areas that aren’t so favorable.Â For example the the bra area fits myÂ luciously large Size FÂ breasts firmly and the extra fabric (which creates the dress effect) covers my thighs keeping me looking playful yet tasteful.
I think I am ready to hit the beach in this lovely number! Oh and I am definately going to retire my old beach attire!
Swimsuits for All sent both Kristal and I a swimsuit to review. Being said, I had to jump in and share my thoughts about this new favorite go-to piece of swimwear!
I have my go to swimsuits, a little hesitant to choose a one piece, but I delved in! I chose a halter one piece with rouching and a little skirt! Â I have never felt so feminine, comfortable, and chic! How much fun is this piece!
You cannot help but feel fabulous, as the rouching hides the tummy, the skirt camouflages my personally defined “problem areas” and yet is a classic that will last forever!
