Beach Babe With Curves

Hey lovelies!

The summer is fastly approaching and I’m wondering why spring is flying by so quickly.  I have been on a mission over the past couple of months to find swimwear that would accentuate this lovely curvaceous body of mine.  I am not going to lie and say that I was initially excited about shopping for swimwear because I am hesitant about getting swimsuits for myself.  They are form-fitting and if not chosen correctly can look unflattering really quick.

Most of my old swimwear are two-pieces and bikini styles from when I was smaller.  I ditched all of those and started fresh.  My goal was to find swimwear that I felt sexy, comfortable, and confident in.  I did some web-surfing, online ordering, and returning/exchanging to find two swimsuit that I feel great in.  The jade colored one piece is from Monif C.  I chose this swimsuit because I love the color and the shape.  I am a fan of fringe and this swimsuit is “fringed” just right.  I thought it was very flattering for my body type and it reminded of a sexy dress.

I am a fan of high waist swimwear because it has more coverage for those of us who are uncomfortable with exposing our bellies all of the way.  I like the retro style of it.  If you read my Swim Sexy post, I had to return the top of the polka-dotted two piece because the top did not support my boobs.  I found another swimsuit (swimsuitsforall.com) that had a different top that could support my double D’s.  I haven’t worn a two piece in a while, but I am excited wear my new two-piece on the beach.

I will posting pics when I get a chance to wear them:-)

I am interested in know what you ladies have found to be great curve rocking swimwear.

To all of my curvy, full-figured, plus-size, voluptuous divas we definitely have great options in swimwear to be beach babes.

Rock on!

Swim Sexy by Swimsuits For All Review

Hey lovelies,

I recently purchased a swimsuit two piece from swimsuitsforall.com from their Swim Sexy Line.  They specialize in swimwear for women with curves size 8 to 34. I found this red and white polka-dotted high waist two piece swimsuit. I purchased a swimsuit from this company a few years ago and I really liked it.  I got it for a really great price right under $20 and free shipping.  There are a lot of promotions and deals that go on daily. Here’s the swimsuit that I got back then.

Here’s a brief review of my newest purchase and shopping experience:

 The swimsuit was packaged well.  The color was great.  The top did not really look like the photo as far as the coverage.  The top felt tight in some places and did not provide the proper support and coverage for my boobs.  If you look at the halter top straps in the ad pic versus my pic,  the ad pic is wider than mine.  The high-waist bikini bottoms fit fine.  However, the waist was so high that it make the two-piece look like a one piece.  

The return/exchange process was not too difficult.  It does require specific steps. I would suggest talking to the customer service reps and review the exchange/return policy.  I called customer service for help which made the process easier.  I couldn’t exchange just the top, so I had to return the set and place another order that involved me paying again.  I recently got an email that my credit should be refunded to my account soon.  

I just got my new swimsuit and will be reviewing it soon.

Here’s a code for 10% off CURVES10.  It can be used with other offers.  It expires by 3-31-15.

FYI, always keep the packaging and invoices for online purchases.  I needed both for this order.

Closet Chic: Swimwear For Women With Curves

Hey, everyone!  I realize that summertime will be coming to an end in a matter of weeks.  So, that means two things.  1) Sales on summer clothes and 2) Enjoying summertime activities.  So, I have been on a quest to find swimwear for myself.  I have been looking for swimwear that is figure flattering and sexy.  I have doing a lot of searching for swimwear for women with curves, and to my surprise there are some great online store that sale fabulously designed swimwear for women with fuller, curvier physiques.  It is not too late to get your sexy on for the beach, pool parties, and other summertime festivities.   So, this post is for the ladies who have been on the fence about stepping and embracing your curves.  You may want to lose weight or don’t feel that you will look sexy.    I have been trying to find the perfect two piece high-waist swimsuit and I think I have found a few places to look.  High-waist swimsuit are big this summer.  This a great alternative to the two-piece bikini.  You have more coverage on your belly area.   You can be modest yet sexy! I have done some research for you;-)

So, let’s get started with Swimsuits for All. At the beginning of this summer, I purchase a really cute one piece swimsuit from this company.  Their sizes range from 8 to 34.  The swimwear on this site has so much variety and this company sales swimwear exclusively.  You can go conservative to super sexy.  If you sign up for their e-mail listing (which is free)  you will be sent promotions and discounts.  I purchased my swimsuit at an already discounted price $29.98 (originally $89) and with the additional promotion (free shipping included) $19.49.  I created a collage of a few pieces from this site.

This is the swimsuit that I purchased.

I  accidentally discovered Rue 107 New York over the weekend.   I absolutely love the bold, edgy, feminine clothing from this store. The sizes range from X-Small to 3X.   In addition to a variety clothing options and accessories, this store has swimwear.  The prices of the swimwear range from $20-100.  The two-piece swim suits are sold separately which I think is cool if you want to mix and match.

The last store I want to share is Unique Vintage.  The name says it all.  This store sales retro and vintage style pieces for various occasions.  The swimwear is gorgeous especially if you want to channel  the 1950’s, Marilyn Monroe-ish style.  I am contemplating on getting the red with white polka dot set (pictured below, $68).  The sizes for the swimwear go up to a size 18.

I hope this was helpful.  This a great time to catch really great sales on swimwear before the summer is gone.  Enjoy this summer and enjoy your curves;-)
