Out and About: Plus Size Resort/ Spring 2013 Swim with Becca Etc
Last week, I was invited out to New York to co-host the latest in plus size swimwear with Becca Etc. Two events, one by Plus Model Magazine and the other in New Jersey at the Jerrie Shop were the place to celebrate and get fancy in plus size swimwear. If you are not familiar, Becca Etc is the baby of the designer Rebecca Virtue who has well over 20 years in the designing swimwear! Chances are if you have ever rocked a swimwear from a major retailer, Rebecca probably had a hand in it. For the past few years, she has ventured from behind the scenes with her own namesake brand AND NOW, it’s sister line, Becca Etc for plus! She knows her stuff and LISTENS to the plus shopper! No for reals! What makes her collection so much different than the other brands? Well, for one, construction. Double stays on the sides of the swim tops to lift and support; no underwire to poke out and stick you; and tons of fashion! Wanting to give the collection something special in bold colors we are often denied, Becca Etc gives us lace, bold prints, and sexy silhouettes! From tankinis to bikinis, the cover-ups and swim pants, there is something definitely special to note about this brand!
For the blogger conference, it was such a fun reunion and moment to catch up and share my excitement with others about the brand! I was hyped! So much so, I donned the Bustier bikini top over my dress to show and share! Did you know that her lace swim pants can ACTUALLY GO IN THE WATER?!?! SCORE!!!!! They are made in the same fabric of the bathing suits! How about them apples!? In New Jersey, at the Jerrie Shop, we got clients and customers into the suits to FEEL the difference, the support and the comfort of the collection! AMAZE!
