So, it’s safe to say that the swimsuit season of Spring/Summer ‘12 has officially begun, I’m sure you’ve seen many of the amazing plus size bloggers rocking their bikinis, tankinis, etc and if you haven’t worked up the courage yet- how about some baby steps?
You don’t have to straight away slap on a bikini if you’re not comfortable with it yet. Keep in mind, the keyword is ‘comfortable’ because if you’re anything but that, you’re probably not going to enjoy your time by the pool/ beach.
Also, keep in mind that unlike magazines, you find women of all shapes and sizes on the beach and they’re too busy enjoying the sun to care about other people’s thoughts.
When it comes to swim suits, I prefer going for shapewear options just because I like a good silhouette- something that is curve friendly, fits perfect, hides certain lumps and bumps and basically streamlines your figure. When all these boxes are ticked, I’m about 10 times more comfortable in a suit, plus I know I won’t be tugging at anything.
I’m a big fan of bold prints and retro designs just because I like wearing accessories at the beach too- flowers in my hair or stylish sunglasses, maybe even a bangle or two. Weesha’s gotta represent under all weather conditions 😛 hehe.
Anyway, Isme.com contacted me about their Resort Shapewear designer swimwear collection, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you. A few of them are on sale and most of them have reviews listed below as well. Let me know what you think of these, and I really hope they inspire you to brave it out at the beach and just enjoy your summer. You deserve to be there as much as anyone else!
Lots of love,
