I was so excited to open my mailbox today after an extra long day at work and find this gorgeous bikini from Curves Avenue. This is easily the sexiest bikini I have ever worn but I felt completely secure and covered while wearing it. I'm hoping my hotel tomorrow night has a pool so I can show it off and test it out in the water. The way it emphasizes my hips and curves has me looking forward to an island vacation in the spring!
The fit is flawless. I am wearing a size 16 and that is the size I normally wear. When shopping online it is critical that sizing charts are accurate and Curves Avenue nails it. The bra cups are lined and have an underwire but they are not padded. So it offers all the support us curvy girls need, but there is no unneccessary bulk. The straps are removable so it can also be worn as a bandeau top, which I always prefer for when I want to just sit out and get a tan. You know, avoid the tan lines so I can still wear strapless summer dresses at night. Still it is nice to have the optional straps for increased support, especially if I'm being more active, for example swimming or walking the sandy beach. You can clearly see the slightly thicker straps in the photo below. The high-waisted bottoms also fit exactly as I would want them to and are incredibly comfortable. Part of the secure feeling comes from all the wrap-around action this suit possesses. This also creates a bit of an illusion of a one peice bathing suit, but with the convenience and major sex appeal of a bikini. The bottoms cross over in the front to create the sexy cut-out areas you can see in the photo above. The top wraps down across in the front of your chest and then ties in the back. There is a small amount of stretch as with any bikini or bathing suit.
Given the distance the bikini had to travel, from the UK to Canada, the shipping was incredibly quick. I think every plus size woman knows the torture of waiting for products to arrive from overseas. Curves Avenue does its absolute best to resolve that issue and get your items to you as quickly as possible. I'd be happy to place an order with them in the future. Head over to Instagram and follow @CurvesAvenue so you can see all of the amazing items they have for sale. Don't miss out!
One final point before I go, I've got to give a huge shout out to the body positivity community for helping me reach a point where not only can I feel comfortable in such a revealing and sexy suit but I can feel beautiful while doing it. I don't hate that my hips look big, I know they are curvy and I love exactly how my body is shaped. This will be the first full year that I no longer waste a single moment hiding my so-called "flaws". I'll be out living life, embracing every minute of it.
