Plus Size Swimsuit Post #2

Swimsuit week would not be complete without a fancy one piece swimsuit.  Some ladies felt that the plus size bikini wouldn't work for them and that's fine, a one piece can be just as bold.  Swimwear is a great time to add in fun accessories.  I, personally, like to go glam at the pool.  A fun beach bag and some bright lip stick and I am ready to go.

Very quickly, I would like talk about my irritation for plus size cover ups and the reason I had to re-purpose this skirt.  Plus size cover ups generally just cover the body to the top of the thigh, but what about us girls who want leg & booty coverage.  We always get left out in the cold.  I personally don't want a cover up my swimsuit, but I would like something to take the edge off of these thighs...LOL.  I will say that now that I have found this cover-up I will probably never buy another one.  It's perfect! It took me years to find it, but now that I got it I'm never letting it go.   Speaking of re-purposing, I have a huge collection of belts that I take off of dresses.  I tend to think the belts that come with a garment look cheap, so I always replace them.  Swimwear is a great place to wear some of these belts.  It's no biggie if you get them wet, because they didn't cost you a dime.

Also, thank you so much for all your positive comments on the plus size bikini. It can be a little unnerving to unveil all your goodies in front of the world, even for a girl like me.
