Summer is upon us and I just love everything about this time of year. The long days and warm nights, the backyard BBQs and holiday parties, and of course anything that has to do with water. I don’t know about you, but I stock up on swimwear in preparation of all of the upcoming festivities. This time around, there seems to be an abundance of fabulous, chic and vibrant swimwear for every body shape and I love that every season, we have more and more options for plus size swimwear. So here are a few of my favorites that I will be rocking all summer long!
Why I love it: One piece swimsuits have definitely taken on a whole new look. No more are the boring, unflattering suits of the past. This has everything that you would want in a one piece: the bra-like cup provides ample support, the ruched bodice minimizes the tummy area and the design completely conforms to a curvy figure.
Why I love it: The fabulous GabiFresh designed this ultra-cute midkini for Swimsuits For All. Ever since I first saw it, I knew that I needed to have it in my possession. The colorful Aztec pattern is enough to make you swoon but there is so much more to this suit. The midkini style is a mixture of a bikini and a tankini so it has the appeal of separates but hangs a bit lower on the torso. The slits on the sides are stylish, chic and tastefully sexy (which I live for).

Why I love it: And last but not least, the epitome of cutting edge plus size swimwear, Monif C. This is actually my very first Monif C purchase and I have to say that her swimwear does not disappoint. The fit, the color, the quality is so deliberate and well designed. Monif C knows how to accentuate curves, slim your frame and make heads turn while doing it.

I encourage all of my ladies of all shapes and sizes to step out of your comfort zone a little bit this season. Do not let fear of others opinions dictate your life and happiness. You are so beautiful, every part of you is beautiful. Be bold, be trendy, be curvy!
