I have on a size 18 top & bottom. I love that the bottoms sit nice & high. The waistband is wide to it doesn’t easily roll down. The top, as you can see has a very wide band. You are will be supported. The straps are adjustable and wide so there is no shortage of support.
Of course you all know when you go on vacation an island, bringing your favorite bathing suits a must. I was very proud of myself for bringing only 2 bathing suits. That’s mainly because I knew I would only have 36 hours to be on the beach & poolside. Lately I have really been loving Always for Me swimsuits. I had the opportunity to be a part of a photoshoot with them, and they are really growing on me as a brand. For this trip I brought along the Veranda Tankini & the Diamond Geo bikini. I’m completely obsessed with both bathing suits so it was fitting that I wore both of these while hanging out pool side.
I was gifted the Veranda Tankini after being a part of a photoshoot with the Always for Me team. I surprisingly fell in love with this tankini. Anyone that knows me, knows I don’t really care for tankinis but it was something about the layers of this one that really made me happy.
The top has 2 light weight foam underwire cups. They are so easy to wear and you feel ultra supported. And this top made my girls look amazing, and you all know that is a total win for me!! As you can see I added a belt. Now of course I don’t plan to wear the belt in the water, but I added the belt because I wanted to add some contrast to the top. It was a bit to monochromatic for me. But I think it adds a bit of character for me.
This cover up I found on sale at Lord & Taylor. It’s from the Design Lab department. That section doesn’t do plus size, but I knew this duster would make a perfect cover up. I happen to find a medium and it fit like a charm. I’m sure I’ll find plenty of other times to wear this duster.
Can we please talk about how amazing this diamond geo pink bikini is?! When I saw it online, I knew it had to be mine. It does come in blue as well. I also had the chance to wear this bathing suit while on set at the photoshoot with the Always for Me team. I was completely sold.
This pool was everything I needed. My cover up is a little DIY project of mine. I made it to wear to Essie’s Golden Confidence pool party. It’s a simple piece of chiffon that I cut, threw it over my shoulders & BOOM instant cover up!
Summer is here and I hope you guys plan to slay at the beach or by someones pool! Be sure to check out Always For Me’s website, they always have a great sale. Happy shopping and I’ll see you in my next post.
