Finding The Perfect Swimsuit: Bikinis For Curvy Women


I published a post last summer, Five Swimsuits For The Curvy Woman, but a new summer is here and it's time to find that new perfect suit. If you'd like to check out last year's post, I think you might still find it helpful. 

This year finding a swimsuit wasn't as difficult for me. Since last summer, I've shed 25 pounds and I'm feeling more confident than ever. I still have a long way to go though and finding the perfect swimsuit still takes a bit of effort! This summer I actually bought a bikini: a real honest to goodness bikini! 

Here are my top 5 bikinis for the curvy woman! 


1. Curvy Kate: Shockwave Halter: I love the bright colors and fun pattern of this suit. The wide straps on both the top and bottom provide good coverage and are flattering for a curvy figure. The neckline on the top is great but still provides great coverage which is really important! 

2. Ralph Lauren Striped Hardware Bikini: I have a slight obsession with nautical looks right now so my eye was drawn to this suit immediately. The halter top provides great support for those with a larger bust and I like how the bottoms fold over. 

3. Striped Banded Halter & Macrame Hipster Bottoms: This is the bikini that I bought this summer! Again, it's a halter (I have a thing for halters!) and I love the design on both the top and bottom. The T-back is fun and something different which is definitely what I wanted. 

4. Retro Stripe Bustier Bikini: I'm in love with this suit! It has a retro feel which I really like. The coverage of both the top and bottom are great for us curvy gals! 

5. Lucky Brand Suddenly Summer: My best friend tried on this suit and wow! She looked amazing! I love the ruffles on both pieces of the suit; they give it a very feminine look. This suit also comes in pink.

Have you bought a suit yet this summer? Tell me about it!

Texas River Floatin': Tips & Tricks


This week I'm going to be bringing back a few posts from last summer; Summer DIYs, travel tips and tricks, finding the perfect swimsuit and more! We're starting off the week with tips for toobin' Texas rivers. 

Toobin' is a huge thing down here where I live; I'm not sure about other parts of the world but us Texans enjoy lounging in a tube, floating down a river with friends and tossin' back a few cold ones. 

Check out my Texas Toobin' Tips post for tips on toobin' and a couple of great spots to float!
