Inspiring Curvy Australian’s take on Swimwear

Just a few days ago Curvy Sam commented on one of my posts here and I checked out her site here! I had to share her take on plus size swimwear and being curvy at the beach with you. Check out her Aussie Curves post!

Inspiring Swimsuit Pictures and Advice

I am especially fond of her How to Get a Beach Body picture below!

I especially love the many excellent pictures of a confident woman wearing swimwear without the shyness I tend to feel. I find how she shows these styles and what she has to say so encouraging!

Love the way Curvy Sam put the ‘Plus Size’ thing

I think this is the one I understand too: Just below the pictures I have shown above from her article about Aussie Curves, she has:
Regarding “Swim + magazine featuring: true plus size women. You know the ones with the lumps and bumps?”

Now that is real to me.

Is that what most of us expect when we hear or read plus size?

I do not really care, except when it comes to writing about these things, I kind of need to know.
Take for instance;
  • Should I be writing about size 10 swimwear here too?
  • Do I really have to look up what the recent articles written about full figure models mean when they say “straight sizes”? 
  • That said: I am also a bit peeved about the Plus Size, as a size issue. 
  • I figure, if the average American woman is a size 14, (& I kept reading this when I took up researching and writing about plus size swimwear nearly 10 years ago now…), Then why is size 14 not considered to be average? 
  • When I saw that Robyn Lawley, is considered plus sized, I figure have to figure that if you have something to spare, not just skin, bone and muscle / sinew apparently you are considered plus sized…? 
  • I do not mind either way but it helps to know what one is writing about. 
  • It also kind of explained why plenty of plus size swimsuits only come in sizes up to 24W. 
  • Okay, part of me still does not get this…

More to Like about Curvy Sam

Anyway, I really like the photos of her making swimwear on, what I understand to be full figure woman, look great!
Her encouragement to:
  • Get out there with your swimwear on have fun, make great memories rather than miss out on them! 
  • Giving a well done to other ‘Aussie Curves Gals’ who have posted swimwear photos of themselves! 
 Curvy Sam’s blog, and, (I think this is her), Pinterest page shows us great fashions and style like the swimwear we find her in, with great color, poise and making it look fun to wear too!

New Chlorine Resistant Swimwear

Always for Me has two new chlorine resistant one piece bathing suits, in sizes 16 – 24, by TYR swimwear, a company started by, and populated by athletes. Expect High Performance Swimwear from them! Both of these plus size swimsuits' descriptions say they will last 300+ hours use, with proper care.

TYR Twisted Bra Control Swimsuit

One of the main difference between this and the other TYR style is this one has adjustable straps. Plus Size Swimwear - TYR Twisted Bra Controlfit 1 Piece 
This twist front style is designed for both large and small busted women. It provides foam cups for modesty. Its empire cut of this style is also visually flattering!

TYR Streamers Aqua Control Swimsuit

This somewhat sporty looking style provides, removable contour cups on a shelf bra. Plus Size Swimwear - TYR Streamers Aqua Controlfit 1 Piece 
It provides moderate, yet with visually leg lengthening leg openings.

Both of these swimsuits have

Both styles are 94% chlorine resistant with 6% spandex. They are also both lined fully and both Anti-Microbial and power-net linings are mentioned regarding this. These are color fast, durable swimwear styles that come in sizes 16 – 24.

These plus size swimwear styles are designed to last as long as you do and are made for action, ease of movement and comfort!

Roamans and other Swimwear On Sale Plus a Discount

One Stop Plus’ discount this week is $25 off orders of $75 and $50 off orders of $150. Naturally their swimwear is mostly on sale! The brands I find qualifying for this discount are Roamans, Jessica London, Miraclesuit and there are likely a few more too! We can use their swimwear banner in the column to the right to get the code on the way to swimwear.

Roamans Swimwear

Here is a look at some highly rated Roamans swimsuits we can enjoy with these double discounts!

I think this Roamans’ swimdress has been available in different prints in the past. It had and has excellent reviews and comes in sizes 14W to 36W. Currently this style comes in 3 prints and is on sale for $60 - $70!

 V-inset swimdress (ORANGE BURST PRINT,16 W) 

This is a bit confusing because it says Separate in its title. Yet its description mentions both the tankini top and swim skirt! It also says it is a Skirtini Swimsuit there too.

This style is on sale for $70 - $80 in sizes 14W to 34W and has excellent reviews!
 Ruffle Skirtini Separate (BLACK OCEAN,26 W) 
Not all brands at Roamans qualify. Jordan Taylor and Carol Wior do not.

This Miraclesuit does…but it is not on sale…it is $172, has 1 five star review and comes in sizes 16W to 24W in black dot and eggplant dot.
 Miracle Suit's Rialto Pin Point Maillot (EGGPLANT DOT,20 W) 
Roamans Swimwear currently starts at $20 and they have 23 styles left!

I know Jessica London swimwear qualifies and I believe Swim 365, Inches Off and other brands we can find at One Stop Plus are also on sale and qualify for these discounts too!

New Profile by Gottex 20% Off Today

Bare Necessities has new tankini and skirtini swim separates in sizes 32 to 40D and E, and 6 – 16 by Gottex we can enjoy today at 20% off with Free Shipping! I do not know how long this discount is running…

The ones that they have in their Bare Plus, (Introducing BarePlus by Bare Necessities. The premiere intimate fashion destination for curvy women.), department are all underwire tankini tops that come in D and E cup, bra sized, styles.

Gottex’s D and E bra sized Tankini Tops

This shirred tankini top gives us underwire bust support plus a built-in foam lined bra. Click on this picture and you will find it in sizes 32 - 40D at Bare Necessities! This same style is also available in sizes 32 – 40E.  
It has adjustable straps and a 3 column, 2 row hook and eye back closure. This style has a straight across back that covers its bra band.

This multi-blue colored tankini top comes in sizes 32 – 40E, and a D cup version in the same band sizes is also available. It has the same built in bra, with adjustable straps, support, but offers a U-keyhole under its horizontal back strap.  

This solid black with blue accents style of this tankini top just above comes in sizes 32 – 40D. It is cut just like the multi colored blue style above, but is not available in an E cup version at this writing.  
These styles above are shown in both the average side of Bare Necessities and the plus size department.

Skirtini and Tankini Bottoms

Currently all the following skirted swim bottoms, as well as solid black swim briefs, for a simple tankini style, are available in sizes 6 – 16 at Bare Necessities. All have attached swim briefs! The side slit of this style has an adjustable draw string that creates ruching at our hips!  

This version to match the black with blue contrast has the same adjustable side slit, except the frill makes it a bit flirtier…
This is the simple black skirtini bottom. It has a wide and comfy waist band!  

The above mentioned simple swim briefs in this line are solid black, provide moderate rear coverage and are fully lined.

Wire Free Tankini Tops

All of the following soft cup styles come in sizes 6 – 16 I believe some women might enjoy the loose fit of this particular bandeau tankini top.  
This style provides foam lined cups for modesty and side boning for extra support. This tankini top comes with adjustable stretch straps. This halter tankini top and the black with blue accent one shown above with the solid black swim skirt, have foam lined cups too.  
All of these soft cup styles have straight backs that cover their back straps.

There is a form fitting bandeau tankini top that comes in the same print as the multi colored blue print. It also comes with adjustable stretch straps.

While these soft cup styles are only shown in their average women’s swimwear selection, all of these Profile by Gottex swimwear styles are available today at Bare Necessities at 20% off, with Free shipping. This will appear, in your shopping cart there!

A nice way to try Gottex!
