Hello from the hot and steamy down under! I know many of my followers are from the Northern Hemisphere and currently experiencing winter, but for those of us in Oz and New Zealand it’s currently our summer and it’s been a hot one. Like crazy hot. Like, don’t even bother with foundation because it’ll just slide straight off your face hot. Like the need to change as soon as you get home because your clothes are damp hot. But that also means hitting the water for many of us has been top of our to-do list (while responsibly socially distancing of course) and hitting the water means…swimwear!
Now it’s no secret that outside of brooches, I tend to collect swimsuits (have I ever publicly confessed to that? Well the cats out of the bag now lol). I’ve always been a big water baby and I adore it in whatever form (beach, pool, bath, shower….I’m really not picky) and that’s where my swimwear obsession comes from. So naturally, I was over the moon when Australian plus friendly brand Curvy by Capriosca Swimwear contacted me asking if I wanted to collab to show off their stunning new Coral Blooms collection!
So if you’ve not heard of Curvy by Capriosca swimwear, they are an Australian swimwear brand based in QLD. They specialize in selling plus-size friendly swimwear (sizing starts at an Australian size 10 and goes up to an Australian size 30 in selected styles) with fit and style in mind. This is actually my third swimsuit from them and I love their quality and attention to detail as well as offering sun smart options as well (one of my sets is a long sleeve front zip one piece which I wear when I go to water parks to stop me burning!).
Curvy has a number of set styles that they offer in new prints. So there really is something to suit everyone. I’m rocking their new Coral Bloom bikini bottom with the wrap bikini top. I absolutely love the unique styling of this piece. The capped sleeves offer my shoulders (which have a tendency to burn super easy) coverage without compromising my style. The wrap tie on the top adds a cute feature to the back of the suit and the bottoms are a nice high-waisted cut which helps me feel nipped and sturdy when out in the surf.
For size reference, I’m wearing the size 18, which is my usual Curvy size. Their garments are fully lined, so no unintentional sheerness when wet, and they are beautifully cut for fuller figured bodies. Also, can we just talk about the absolute summer dream that is this coral bloom print?! The blending of orange, peach, pink, and purple is beautifully vivid yet soft and is definitely a great statement for ladies who prefer a gentle color palette.

Til next time darlings
