It's almost Christmas so let's talk swimwear! Obviously. Let's check out plus size swimwear by Simply Be! They have a massive collection of swim wear and I've dug through it, finding some of my favorites.
I dig bikinis. I wish more fatties felt comfortable enough to wear them. But then it's difficult because finding a bikini that fits. It gets harder the larger you are. While not all of Simply Be's suits go beyond a 20, there are many that do! Which delights me like crazy.
(Just an FYI, the bathing suit models are...far from plus size. Just thought I'd mention it.)
1 Joe Browns Bikini The paisley made me immediately think of Natalie!
2 Pour Moi Crete Bikini
3 Beach to Beach Stars Bikini Gah I love stars! This one goes to a 32 and you can get a matching tankini if you're uncomfortable with the bikini top.
4 Marilyn Underwired Balconette Bikini This is one of my favorites! Dots and flowers. I just love the flower fabric so much!
5 Beach to Beach Bikini Comes in a 32 and it's just bloody adorable!
6 Jeffrey and Paula Tankini Set This one covers you up a bit but is still cute and stylish.
There's also the fun of mixing and matching to create something you love and feel comfortable in.
1 Silhouette Mix and Match Skort
2 Cosmo Underwired Padded Sweetheart The longer I look, the more I like it.
3 Flora Ruched Bikini Brief
4 Midnight Martini Sweetheart Bikini Top I'm completely in love with the pattern. It seems I currently have a thing for tiny flowers!
5 Sahara Tie Side Bikini Brief
6 Panache Bandeau Bikini Oh my god, I LOVE the vintage naval feel this has. I would wear the hell out of it!
So, there you go. 12 swimsuits I love!
I'm hoping to find the courage to wear a bikini top in the summer. And by “bikini top” I actually mean a retired bra paired with board shorts. Because a fatty wants to feel sun on her belly! It's scary. It's scary to show a body that society tells you and everyone else to despise. If you can't walk outside in that bikini? Put on a one piece! Put shorts and a t-shirt over it! But don't stop yourself from going to the beach or swimming in that pool. Even if you're not ready to show a lot of skin (or if you never WANT to show a lot of skin) you deserve the life you want. You deserve to feel water enveloping your body.
You deserve to be anywhere you goddamn well want to be!
