Yesterday, myself, Zoe, Natalie, Nick and various others went on a boat for Nick’s birthday celebrations. It was a lovely day, filled with swimming in slightly sludgy, salty water, a bbq, alcohol and dramas involving us scrambling back onto the boat after jumping off.
This day? Required swim wear.
Swim wear? Can be hard to find when you’re fat.
Ok, that’s probably a little bit of a lie. Cute swim wear, can be hard to find if you’re fat. There’s plenty of garishly printed swim skirts and black one pieces to be found if that’s what you’re in to.
So where did we find our cute swim wear?
For me, it was Kmart. A black and white polka dotted faux tankini with ruching and ties down the side. For Zoe it was Seafolly, a very cute bright blue, black and white printed one piece. Natalie, where was yours from? It was adorable! A zebra striped one piece in leopard print colours. A very confused animal, to be sure.
Target is usually my best choice for swim wear in all sizes. Kmart can be pretty decent too. Seafolly has certain brands that go up to G cups (very very rare though) and up to a size … 20, I think. For larger sizes, I think places like Big Girls Don’t Cry and All About Eve have some decent (if very pricy) swimwear. I know Myer and DJs also have plus sized swim wear (not usually all that cute though). Nick, places like, ugh Lowes, I guess are best for board shorts?
I’m still on the hunt for a leopard print one piece. Torrid had a really cute one, but there’s none left in my size now. Unique Vintage also had one, but it’s a little too expensive for me right now.
Know somewhere where I can get one? Or just another cute pair in general? Let me know!
