It’s the day after Memorial Day here in the United States which means we are right on the cusp of summer and BC and I have two trips planned for the season ahead: in June we are headed to Denver for FitBloggin and then in August we are going away to Florida for a whole entire week with his family. Naturally, and especially with a beach on the horizon, I’m looking at swimwear.

Obviously when you are a foxy and fabulous curvy gal like myself, swimsuit shopping can be fraught with frustration and failure. While looking for a bathing suit, I came across a bunch and decided to share a few of my favorite to hopefully help your own buying process. I’ve even included the bathing suit I bought and am taking to Florida with me (spoiler alert: it’s a two-piece!)

But first, here’s a fun infographic from ModCloth on the history of the swimsuit!

You guys know I’m a huge ModCloth fan. One of the reasons I love them so much is they are super plus size friendly and that extends to their swimsuits. Here are a few of my favorites:

Next up, Kiyonna!

Last, but certainly not least, we have Swimsuitsforall.

So now, of course, you want to know which swimsuit I’ll be sporting this summer, yes?


I know, right?! 

This is the first bikini I’m pretty sure I’ve ever owned, mostly because I’m usually far too self-conscious but when I saw this one on SwimsuitsForAll, I just had to have it and as soon as I tried it on I knew I made the right choice. It just makes me feel so fabulous, like I can’t even. The fact that I’m finally brave enough to rock a two piece says more about my sense of self and body image than anything else.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR SUMMER!

Love from the ashes,
Lady Lazarus
