Miami on My Mind

I'm soooooooo looking forward to my upcoming trip to Miami. People always talk about things that are hard to find in plus but honestly, I think there are so many amazing brands and stores these days, you can generally find most things in plus. What I do find impossible to find is a great swimsuit. They are always so matronly...plus size clothing has come a long way but we definitely need more swimwear!

As I search the web on a daily basis for a great suit to take with me to Miami...I found these on Bonmarche' - You really do have to love the Brits. And, international shipping? Be still my heart! Here are my favorites that I found on the site. They go up to UK size 24 - That's about a US 20. Amazing right?

  1. I love a bikini. That first one is fabulous. As is the polka halter suit. Gorgeous.

    I was discussing this with a friend recently. Plus size fashion in the last 6/7 years (while I've been fashion conscious) has grown exponentially. I mean these days you can get high end and high street, basics, trend based clothes, which I would not have believed when I was a teenager. I thought I'd be stuck in Evans old style tents for the rest of my life. Whether you follow every trend or don't even know what sports luxe means, if you're a goth or rockabilly, androgynous or super girly, you can find plus size clothes for you in store or online today!

    But there are a few areas that aren't as brilliant. Swimwear is a big one. You can get cover ups, but sexy swimwear which isn't all retro in style? Pretty rare. I think its the same for accessories. Tights, socks in larger sizes, as well as jewellery and gloves, etc.

    Sorry for the essay of a comment.

  2. It's awesome to see more options for swimsuits. All of these are super cute! :) The polka dot ones remind me of the plus size suits that are sometimes on Modcloth (they go up to 3x, I think). Loving the red and white suit the mostest! :)
