Summer 2016 Plus Size Swimwear and Beachwear Round Up Part 2

I have been trying out a variety of swimwear this summer and I am continuing to feature these pieces across my social media accounts. I am doing this not only to find new items for myself but also to show others what these things look like on me in the hope that I might inspire someone to try something different. Needless to say I can't afford to keep all of these items, more's the pity! But I still take the time to photograph the pieces and share them on social media so that other people can get an idea of what they look like on a plus size curvy body.

So, without any further ado, let's look at the second batch of pieces I've tried recently. For reference, you can see my first post here.

Summer 2016 Plus Size Swimwear and Beachwear Round Up Part 1

You might've noticed I've been rather absent here of late. It happened for myriad reasons but mostly because I have simply been busy with life (mainly my work life). It takes a LONG time to put together a blog review post, and I just haven't had the energy or the time to do it for the past few weeks. 

However, it's relatively quick and easy to pop a short review on Instagram, and that's where you'll mostly find me these days. For those not in the know, Instagram is a photo sharing social media platform where people post all sorts of pictures on their profiles to share with the world. IG is my favourite of all the social media platforms because it is mostly friendly - in my experience, at least - and I love scrolling through my timeline to discover all sorts of beautiful images and inspirational posts. If you don't already, you can follow me on Instagram here.

Ewa Michalak S Przeplatanki Bra 32LL and 34L

Strappy harness bras have been around for quite some time now, but there are very few full busted brands who have embraced this trend. Thankfully Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak is a trailblazer and they brought out their own version late last year: the S Przeplatanki.

Curvy Kate Shockwave Padded Bikini Top 34K and Adjustable Short 20

Full-busted lingerie brand Curvy Kate has become my go-to brand for swimwear over the past few years, and I am gradually building up my collection of their bikinis. Back in December I went to Mexico for a week's holiday and I bought myself a few pieces from CK's past collections to take on the trip. Today I will be reviewing the Shockwave Bikini (Spring/Summer 2015).

Lingerie Solutions: Pambra's - The Original Bra Liner

I am often asked by my readers what can be done to alleviate bra band chafing. This is something I myself have suffered from time to time so it made sense for me to trial some kind of solution and review it on my blog. Of course, the best solution is a correctly fitting bra - see my post here for tips on how to find a bra that fits you properly - but even then there may be days when your bra causes irritation and so it is good to know of a way to deal with this if needs be.

After a bit of digging round on the internet, I discovered Pambra's (no, the apostrophe is not incorrectly placed!). They are touted as 'the original bra liner (since 1988)' and are made by an American company.

Ewa Michalak FB Tęczowe Bra 34KK/75KK

Polish lingerie brand Ewa Michalak recently brought out a new design of bra: the FB style. It's made exclusively for ladies with particularly large busts, going from a band size 32/70 all the way up to (amazingly) 60/140, with UK based cup sizes - band dependent - from D to P. Despite being very happy with the S and PL bras I wear, I was very keen to try this new style as a lot of my readers have asked me for my feedback on it. I approached the team at Ewa Michalak and they kindly agreed to send me the FB Tęczowe Bra.

Panache Cleo Kali Purple Babydoll 34J and Thong 18

I do love a babydoll. Admittedly, as a single woman I don't get to wear them very often, but I love them all the same. They are cute and fun and sexy, and although they hide my waist - something I usually like to emphasise - I love how the skirt fabric hides what lies beneath.

When my friend Hayley at Curves 'n' Curls blog told me about a purple babydoll - the Panache Cleo Kali - she was being sent to review I was green (not purple) with envy. I got in touch with the lovely folks at Panache and they very kindly offered to send me one too so that we could do a joint review, so do be sure to check out Hayley's review here.

Plus Size Bikini Bottoms from M&Co

Being the proud owner of a rather generous posterior, I often find that bikini bottoms which are comfortable and provide sufficient coverage can be quite tricky to find. For many years now, I have bought bikini tops and bottoms from separate places as although bra-size swimwear options are growing year on year the choices for briefs are usually not. Of course, there are always exceptions to this and brands such as Curvy Kate and Panache continue to strive to extend their swimwear ranges, but the point I want to get across here is that we shouldn't give up if the matching bottoms are not available in our size or if they are not in a style we like.
