Fatshion Faceoff: Swimwear

This week's Fatshion Faceoff was chosen by me- swimwear! Now first things first, I need to admit a few things:

- I really didn't think this through, it's currently winter in Australia.
- I didn't go swimming in these today (refer to first point)
- Its night time, not even remotely a good time for swimwear (unless you're on holidays)

 To be completely honest, I had intended to take these pictures while we were in Vegas, but somehow too many cocktails mixed with too many wines meant I never got them done. So I've cheated. I didn't actually wear these anywhere, just in my backyard to show you what I would wear if it was warm and sunny.



Coverup: Torrid
Shorts: City Chic
Swimmers: Always for Me

The shorts have a little sheen to them which didn't capture very well on camera- but does look really cute in real life. I swear by little cover-up dresses to throw over my togs. I love putting one on and strutting around the pool, they always give me an extra confidence boost! This gem I picked up at Torrid. I especially love it because it's low cut- I think we all need to show a little bit more boob ;)





Much the same for the swimmers actually. I liked them because the print was classic and the the cups are low cut with an underwire for a bit more support, while still looking cute and booby! Plus they have the extra little keyhole detail too!

I have quite a few pairs of pretty colourful swimmers too, but sometimes you just can't go past classic black and white! With a big floppy hat and my cover-up on, I always feel very 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' in this suit! Only the chubbier, less classy version ;)

Check out the other Fatshion Faceoff girls in their swimmers too- hopefully they get a bit of sun on theirs!!

  7. I feel cold just thinking about swimwear - so you are brave for modelling yours for us! I love your cover up - its really pretty. My togs are actually a vintage swim dress from the 70's so the whole thing is like a beach cover up - but I do get weird looks from people at the beach....I think they are like "is that girl actually swimming in her DRESS!" its a swim dress people! :D

    I like your togs too - rawr - black n' white & boobies - how can you go wrong?

  17. Hey pretty lady! LOVE the swimsuit and the coverup is fantastic. I need to get one for myself, I usually toss on an old dress or something. Haha! :D And your boobage looks great, that's what the pool is for, right? Btw, is your hair naturally that amazing or do you have secret hair how-tos? If so, you must share. I'm jealous! ;)
