I've always been plus size and have NEVER worn a bikini until NOW! Honestly I've haven't always had the confidence to wear one. I think I had a change of heart about 10 years ago. My friend Jenette told me about a plus size woman she saw at the coast with her boyfriend. She was a size 24 in a string bikini and she never saw a woman that looked more happy in her skin and in a bathing suit than her. That's when I thought... "If she can do it...so can I" Isn't it awesome to be inspired by others?
The main problem was in tapping into my inner Sport Illustration Swimwear model, was finding one. Either the sizing was an issue and would NEVER come across a suit larger than a size 12. Or the ones they did have were just not flattering. It just plain HARD to find one that works well with my body type. (Apple Shape) I love the high waisted bottoms and structured tops. I think it's important to find a swimsuit that fits you like a glove. As much as I wanted to wear a bikini... I wanted to do it as tastefully as possible.
Just found this beauty in a size 18 at Lane Bryant and under $100!
I'm going to ROCK the HELL out of this ...this summer!
(Just waiting for it to get warm enough where I can wear it already)
