It’s almost here. Before we know it summer will be upon us and that means it will be time to hit the beach. Going to the beach can be daunting task for those out there that don’t fit the status quo when it comes to size. Between not being able to find bathing suits that actually fit to just being intimidated by all the smaller bodies getting their tan on, it’s safe to say that the beach hasn’t always been a plus sized girl’s best friend.
Well not any more!
These days there are a decent amount of designers catering to plus sized women who want to hit the beach and look just as stylish as their smaller counterparts. One swimsuit style making a hit in plus sized fashion is the bikini. Yes plus sized women can wear bikinis too! Check out three reasons why if you’re a plus sized woman, you need to be showing off your curves in a bikini this summer.
They Are Actually Made For Your Body
These bikinis aren’t made from the two pieces of string regular sized bikinis are made from. The latest in plus size swimwear are made to fit, hide and smooth all the areas you might be self conscious about. No need to worry about hanging out all over the place in a regular bikini, designers know you’ve got a little more cushion to work with so their designs are flattering for every plus sized shape. Now you can go out on the beach feeling confident and sexy in your bikini knowing that you look just as hot as everyone else.
They Are Stylish
Have you seen some of the plus sized bikinis out there? They are super cute and super sexy! Designers like Monif C are creating bikinis like this leopard print one that sure to turn heads when you step on the scene. No more covering up in oversized cover ups or wearing tank tops and shorts to the beach, no ma’am! Plus size women know have tons of stylish bikini options to wear…which one will you choose?
Because You Need To Embrace Your Body No Matter What Size You Are
So you can’t wear a teeny Brazilian style bikini. So what! Just because you’re not skinny doesn’t mean you can’t love, embrace and show off what you’re working with. With all the plus size bikini options out there why not show the world that hot and sexy isn’t limited to sizes 0-8. Fashion blogger and stylist Gabi Gregg recently posted pics of herself in a fab retro bikini on her site GabiFresh.com and she hopes that she can inspire the rest of you plus size divas out there to rock out in your bikinis this summer:
“Don’t let body shame keep you from having a good time! I don’t expect everyone to feel comfortable in a two piece, but hopefully I can inspire some of you to take the plunge. I can’t tell you how freeing it is to just have fun without worrying about what other people think.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself!
