Stylish Swimwear for Women With Fuller Busts

Summer holidays! One of the first things that pop into my head is swimwear. Sea, sun, pool and sandy beach – these words bring me so much joy. I end up packing more swimwear than I need in my suitcase before anything else, after all, they don’t take up so much space and don’t weigh much either. So here is my recommendation on Stylish Swimwear for Women With Fuller Busts.

Figleaves have been my go-to for pretty much everything they offer- from swimwear to lingerie.

Along with a lot of other brands, Figleaves also do their own range of swimwear. As summer and summer holiday plans are underway, let’s talk swimwear sizes and some of my favourite styles offered by Figleaves for busty women like myself.

Swimwear Sizing

As a woman with fuller busts, finding the right size of swimwear just like lingerie is important to me and for my self-confidence. Figleaves offer their own range of swimwear with sizes up to H cup. This means you don’t have to compromise on a style, comfort and fit when opting for swimwear. This is great news for busty women because the fashion industry in general hardly caters to us or women with non-conventional body shapes.

Now, let’s talk stylish swimwear for women with fuller busts…

Two Piece / Bikini

A style I’ve grown to love. I like a little drama, add some frills, plain or patterned top, paired with high waisted bottoms.

Classic One Piece/Swimsuit

Everyone needs a classic one piece. They are versatile and can be worn as a bodysuit.

The classic one-piece/swimsuit was my go-to when I was a lot less confident about my body. They are still my go-to on days that I want to keep things simple or for pool or beach activities. I feel a lot more secure in a swimsuit.

The Bandeau

The Bandeau does something magical to the cleavage and clavicles. They look very flattering on the upper region and I am an advocate for this style. Either as a two piece or one piece, plain, patterned or very dramatic. With regular clothing and big busts, bandeaus may be tricky but as swimwear, they are great.

Fashionable Tips For Feeling Lighter & Happier On A Daily Basis

by

What makes you happy? Is it what you do, and who you meet, or how you feel when you experience those things? Happiness is not always attributable to one cause, but it can certainly be improved and helped by enhancing various aspects of your life. Many times, people look towards social issues, or confidence issues, and consider them final. They’re not. Like anything in life, they are dynamic and available to change. In order to stay happy in yourself, changing things up continually is usually required to make sure you’re not living in a stagnant way.

If you’re looking for that confidence boost, instead of merely trying to search for depressive symptoms online, why not try a practical solution, such as checking your confidence and using your wardrobe as a catalyst to improve that?

What follows is an exploration of the fashionable goods you can use to help yourself feel lighter and happier on a daily basis.

Dress For Your Body

No one has the perfect body. Even people we consider our physical idols are people who have at least one or two hang-ups about their body. This is relatively natural, although it must be eased somewhat. One of the methods for achieving this includes wearing clothing which emphasizes your perceived strengths and masks your weaknesses. Of course, we are confident you are beautiful just the way you are, but if you’d rather not have to worry about showing off a certain area, learning how to dress to naturally fit your shape and desire can work wonders in helping you feel comfortable in your dress.

Experiment, But Not Too Much

There are plenty of ways to feel natural and happy in the dress you greet the world in, and experimenting with new styles is part of that. However, going too far and dressing in gear certain to turn heads will only lead to you feeling self-conscious, and that could prevent your creative expression in the future. You are likely beautiful no matter what you wear, but making sure that you hit the fine line between being comfortable and daring in experimentation will help you make the wisest and most suitable fashion choices for you.

Femininity

Express your femininity. This can be done in a plethora of ways, from trying new jewelry to makeup to wearing more natural airy clothing. For example, the perfect thing to wear is a sundress during the summer if you hope to feel radiant and blooming in your smoldering look. Approach your femininity from a seasonal perspective, and identify what femininity means to you. For some, it will mean wearing beautiful body-hugging garments, whereas for others it will mean dressing in a dignified and powerful way. Make an impact, and don’t constrain your femininity to only one style of clothing line. The beauty of being feminine is in its dynamism, so one look this week could precipitate a completely different style in the next week. Before long you will feel like twice the woman you ever have done before.

Colors

The colors you wear will all be dictated by seasonal tastes, your mood, and the general clothing available to you. However, it’s important to understand what colors work best for your skin tone and to try and stick to those parameters. Different hues will work better with different complexions, so finding the perfect shade is all a matter of subjective identification. For this reason, heading to a stylish, or researching online could help you make wiser fashion purchasing decisions, especially if you’re inclined to wearing bolder colors with abandon.

Of course, the colors you wear are entirely your own to decide, and what makes you feel the best is often the most correct option. However, if you’re looking to become a little more effective in your stylistic choices, this is a good place to start.

Jewellery

Jewellery can help you draw attention to aspects of your outfit which you consider to be significant. For example, a nice necklace can draw attention to your face and your new makeup pastel toning. However, the colors of which are essential to get right, because clashing the colors here can ruin any positive look you have styling your garment choices to match. Most women enjoy wearing gold, silver or more modern and fashionably, rose gold jewelry, as they are relatively understated but catch the eye and are themed together well. This can add the finishing touch to an outfit, giving you that extra ‘wow’ factor which is so integral to feeling confident in your threads.

With these tips, you’re sure to feel wonderful during all moments of the day.**Sponsored

3 Lingerie Shopping Tips For Women With Busts Bigger Than DD’s – Let’s Get Intimate

by

Did I tell you guys what I got up to during London Fashion week this season? Oops, if you aren’t following me on Instagram then you may (or may not) have missed out on that ship. But, I’ll share one of my highlights from this season with you guys.

Before I do, I want to let you guys understand that every fashion week I attend, I try to make my post as personal as possible. Especially on the blog. I share all the instant runway bits on my social media and recap on my personal experience like I did for Milan Fashion Week and Malta Fashion Week here on the blog.

Figleaves x Edeline Lee

Figleaves x Edeline Lee | London fashion Week SS18

So, for London Fashion Week SS18, Figleaves invited me to join them at designer Edeline Lee’s presentation. I was excited, especially at the idea of hanging out backstage and getting to meet the designer. I shared all of this action on their Instagram stories and on mine too. Underneath all the pretty clothes the models at the presentation strutted in, were lingerie from Figleaves.

…Right, let’s talk about What Lies beneath and let’s get intimate with Figleaves. For a couple of years now, I’ve bought most of my lingerie from Figleaves. Buying lingerie especially bras, in general, is tricky for a girl bigger than a DD. When I say tricky, it’s everything from fit to prices, styles and variety of brands. I still wonder when would the fashion industry start catering to the need of busty women… So what’s a small-ish woman with big busts to do? Here’s what I’ve done

  1. Got my size right. Sometimes I go up on down in size depending on the brand or even style. Once you’ve got this right, THAT IS ALL. Bigger bust bras don’t come cheap, so for me, this is very important that everything is right and perfect. Nowadays, you get a lot more support online with fittings.
  2. I found an online store that caters to larger sizes, and offer lots of brands and styles. I buy almost everything online, it was about time I started buying lingerie online too.
  3. For variety, I had to start thinking outside ‘the box’. I mean, the world, wide, web has a lot to offer. A lot more than I possibly can find in stores.
  4. Embraced more risque styles. Though I might have an obsession with black lingerie, I’ve embraced all colours and designs.

Here are some of my favourites from Figleaves

3 Confidence Boosting Personal Style Tips

by

Like they say, dress the way you would like to be addressed.

Style is about self-expression and reflecting your character through clothing, styling and your imagination or creativity. How you want to portray yourself and how you want to be perceived by others.

I’ve been very experimental over the years but with age, trend, experience and mostly lifestyle my choices in fashion and clothes have evolved.

I wrote about the importance of building a functional wardrobe, which could enhance self-confidence. What’s weird is that the moment I tilt too far right out of my comfort zone, it takes a slight hit on my confidence.

To come across as a woman who has all her s**t together (it doesn’t matter if you do or don’t), pretty knows what she wants and is a #girlboss, here are my 3 confidence boosting personal styling tips.  

Opt for clothes that enhance your poise

Poise- “Graceful and elegant bearing in a person.” “Composure and dignity of manner.” – oxforddictionaries.com

This isn’t something that gets mentioned often in popular articles. But in my opinion, very crucial for confidence boosting.

Focus on your good features

It’s so easy to focus on and try to hide the bits we don’t like about ourselves. I’m guilty of this too. But whilst it may be more comfortable to hide our insecurities, how about taking attention away from them by paying a bit of attention to features we like?

Don’t Shy Away From Trying Something Different

…That feeling you get when you buy something you aren’t maybe too sure of, you take it home and it fits perfectly! So, don’t shy away from the unusual colour or unusual piece, it could just be the missing in your wardrobe as well as a key to boosting your self-confidence.

So, what tricks and tips do you have up your sleeves for boosting your personality and confidence through your fashion choices? I would love to know if any of the above tips work for you.
