Today we didn't leave the house. I rocked the Gabi Fresh for Swimsuitsforall and topped up the tan. Ever since I saw this Bikini I needed it, as in right this second. It's a quirky print, somewhat highwaisted and as the cutest cut outs, which I love. I'm all for quirky swimwear in a wide variety of sizes. Gabi Gregg is my all time favourite Blogger and she even inspired me to start this Blog back at the start of 2012! She's paving the way for women of all shapes and sizes and giving women all across the world confidence. You can never have enough positive roles models in the world, and Gabi is definitely one of mine.
I ordered a US14 which is a UK18 in both the top and the bottom. The sizing is good. It hugs my curves well and shows off my shape. I've an hourglass shape although I'm lacking in the bum department. I'm at 38E at the moment (Possibly small back, larger cup! Need to get fitted pronto) and the top fits really well. It also has adjustable straps if you want to give your chest a bit more lift. As well as adjustable straps, they're also detectable so you don't have to worry about tan lines! The bottoms are nice and high concealing your tummy, but has these sexy cut out, which for me is really the selling point!
Another short and sweet post for me I'm afraid. I've been bitten alive and my face is covered in Sudocreme and I'm currently fighting off every living insect in France. I swear they're swarming towards me at an alarming rate! I really don't know what I'm going to do with I got to South East Asia and Australia. Other than hide somewhere safe and arm myself with repellent every time I have to leave the safety of my hiding spot! Anyway enough with the melodramatics. Over all this is a gorgeous bikini, made me feel great and isn't too expensive. I'm definitely picking up a similar one for my trip!
On a more personal note I love doing these posts. I love showing women that you can wear what you want. I'm so far from perfect it's unbelievable, but that's okay. It's okay to be confident, even if you don't have the "perfect" body according to beauty standards. Sure my tummy and legs are wobbly but who cares? Like I honestly couldn't give two monkeys about what people think of me. It's taken me a while, but at the end of the day the only person you should be concerned about is yourself. If you're unhappy with your body I firmly believe you should change if. If you're happy then embrace it and it's as simple as that. Don't let anyone ever tell you that you're not beautiful or you're less than. As long as you're a kind person you're beautiful!
