Busty Beach Day

This weekend I have done nothing else but enjoy the gorgeous weather! Yesterday we attended a lovely birthday BBQ and today we went for our first sea swim of the year as a couple (my man has braved it and been by himself a few times before!). For plus size women, summer and the prospects of swimwear can be a scary thing, but there is NO reason why it should be, ever!


Hat - Charity Shop, Kimono - ASOS Curve, Swimsuit - Charity Shop (BNWT originally from Tesco), Skirt - Primark, Jelly Shoes - Primark, Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters.

We live a 5 minute walk from a gorgeous secluded beach and the same distance from the well known Barry Island beach but on days where you want a lovely swim and a chill out, our little beach is the best option. This is what I wore to the beach. I always take a cover up of some kind when we head to the beach and it's sunny because if it gets too hot, I really will end up burnt to a crisp. So a cover up just takes the edge of the suns glaring rays on my extra pale skin (I always make sure I use factor 50 too!). This skirt is super old but perfect for a hot beach day, it's such a relaxed, flowing fit that it allows the most air possible through to my pins! Finally I cannot stop lusting after all the jelly shoes. They are the perfect alternative to flip flops (which I personally just cannot get on with) and are great for wearing to the beach and even in the sea! 


This swimsuit was the find of the century! It cost me £4 and came BNWT! I know some people might find it a bit gross buying a swimsuit from a charity shop but i thoroughly washed it before wearing and it came with the tags so was clearly not heavily used. It has an adorable little skirt attached which was a swimsuit style I had been looking for for ages! The back is very low which does leave room for additional sunburn areas but it's so comfortable. As a busty lady I am always concerned about swimwear without padding in the breast area but this one is great! It has no padding but it is very supportive and ensures your boobs stay in their appropriate area! When I wear it, it reminds me of thi scene from Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd (which always makes me chuckle). 


Ladies, I implore you all to embrace swimwear. Whether it be a swimsuit, a bikini and two piece or any other kind of swimming garment you feel comfortable it! Don't miss out on swimming in the sea comfortably (I see so many plus size ladies going in the sea in their clothes and it makes me a little sad) or feeling the sun caressing you as you dry off on your towel after a dip! Find swimwear you feel comfortable in, be confident wearing it and you will, without fail, look fabulous!

Lots Of Love,
