There is a serious heatwave going on in NYC right now - I'm actually sitting here singing songs in front of my fan (don't act like I'm the only one who does it!). In an effort to prepare for the beach
and a trip to Atlantic City with one of my best friends next week, I took a trip to Old Navy to find a bathing suit.
Pardon the photo quality - these are in the dressing room!
As a woman with curves in lots of places, it's really tough to find a suit that does my body justice. To be very honest, I've only recently become really comfortable with the idea of being in a bathing suit. I'm not a swimmer and I was born in December, so being in the sun half naked isn't my idea of a good time! Being top heavy, a halter swimsuit is the best choice - offering the most support without an actual bra or underwire. No halter in sight? Opt for the tried-and-true strapped suit. Since I have wonderfully meaty thighs (ha!), I tried looking for suits with brief cuts for the fullest coverage.
The result? These two pieces - one strapped in a beautiful blue jewel tone and a playful striped hot pink and white halter swimsuit. I feel like a million bucks in these, and I can't wait to share pictures of my ridiculous adventure with my friend in Atlantic City.

More swimwear tips for plus size:
- Suits with embellishments not only draw attention to your wonderful shape, but play up your fun personality! Think fringe and beaded necklines.
- Overlays help to transition from poolside to party time. Not looking to don your mama's usual caftan? Think sheer maxi skirts and dresses.
