It's the day after Memorial Day here in the United States which means we are right on the cusp of summer and BC and I have two trips planned for the season ahead: in June we are headed to Denver for FitBloggin and then in August we are going away to Florida for a whole entire week with his family. Naturally, and especially with a beach on the horizon, I'm looking at swimwear.
Obviously when you are a foxy and fabulous curvy gal like myself, swimsuit shopping can be fraught with frustration and failure. While looking for a bathing suit, I came across a bunch and decided to share a few of my favorite to hopefully help your own buying process. I've even included the bathing suit I bought and am taking to Florida with me (spoiler alert: it's a two-piece!)
But first, here's a fun infographic from ModCloth on the history of the swimsuit!
Next up, Kiyonna!
Last, but certainly not least, we have Swimsuitsforall.
So now, of course, you want to know which swimsuit I'll be sporting this summer, yes?
I know, right?!
This is the first bikini I'm pretty sure I've ever owned, mostly because I'm usually far too self-conscious but when I saw this one on SwimsuitsForAll, I just had to have it and as soon as I tried it on I knew I made the right choice. It just makes me feel so fabulous, like I can't even. The fact that I'm finally brave enough to rock a two piece says more about my sense of self and body image than anything else.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER!
Love from the ashes,
