With the weather getting warmer and the Summer drawing nearer it is time to start thinking about your new bathing suit for the season. This week I am going to feature different options and brands of swimwear… making this week Plus Size Swimwear Week! Today I am starting Plus Size Swimwear Week off by featuring one of my favourite brands, ADDITION ELLE.
The swimwear collection this season from ADDITION ELLE is so much more extensive than I ever remember it being, which is so exciting. They have so many styles and options that target many body types. They have also added a few really cute and retro inspired pieces to their line which I love.
Now I know some of you may be asking me “Karyn, Why are you showcasing swimwear this week? I wouldn’t be caught dead in a bathing suit!”. And to that I shake my fist! Who doesn’t want to have fun in the sun, lay on the beach and have fun splashing around in the water? Unless you are terrified of water, there is no excuse! We are only given one life on earth and you better well enjoy it! There is no time to be self conscious and concerned about (what you think) other people are thinking; because chances are they don’t even care. So get yourself a cute tankini and go strut your curves! And remember, if needed, you can always compliment your curves and swimsuit with a super cute cover-up, which ADDITION ELLE has has many cute options of. Whatever it takes to get you to the beach this Summer!
