Swimsuits, Not Always Difficult

So, I have a confession to make...

You know how women come to dread bathing season because it means bathing suit shopping? Well imagine having a thin and petite frame with two big balloons on top. Yep, thats the figure that I was blessed with. You can thank my mother for the balloon analogy, it was her comment, I swear!

Don't get me wrong, I am fortunate to have curves that others pay for, but sometimes my proportions do more harm than good. It is my unique shape that makes finding the perfect swimwear a pain in the arse (or chest in this case). Get an xs and the waist is perfect while the top is way too small. Go for the xl and the top coverage is somewhat adequate but obviously I am swimming (pun intended) in a way too huge suit everywhere else. I know, cleavage in a suit is great, but not when 3/4 of your chest is peaking out of 2 teeny strips of lycra. We are talking more than nip slip here. Bra- sized seperates don't cut it, and not everyone falls into the 32A-38DD range. I am smaller than a 30, and much bigger than a DD. Clearly, there is a problem...

However, I am pleased to report that I have found the solution! For those of you that find yourselves in my predicament (teeny body, but large bust), read on. Or, for those of you not in my predicament but want to follow along anyway, by all means join me on my journey into figure flattering swimwear.

Meet the Freya Swimsuit. She is sleek and feminine. She comes in separates so you can customize the sizes of your tops and bottoms, and... SHE COMES IN BRA SIZES! As small as a 30D (ok, so D is relatively big in the avg population, but Im way beyond that so for me its small) and as big as 38HH (yes, that size exists).
Big hooray for someone with my odd proportions.

And how cute are these suits?! Functional and hot!
So, help me pick out my next suit!? I can't decide!!!

Ohh I like all 3 but 1 and 3 are my favorites. Damm i wish I had the body to pull these suits off.

LissaMarie said...

i loveee the dark blue floral one ( the last one) these swim suits are fabulous!

Shadowy Lady said...

Adina, these suits are gorgeous! I love the first one. I'm not nearly as big as you but I'm slim and my boobs are big while my waist is not. I always have difficulty shopping for swim suits. I will check these out

Crissy K said...

lol you are so funny. You know you are the envy of all women :) I like the first and last one.

Kathleen said...

I think the last one would look amazing on you!! It seems to have that Krasey flare ;)

FuN and MakeUp said...

i need one for the summer tooo!!! i like the 1st of 2nd.. but i think i would go with the 2nd! hope u find one soon =)

Pudgy Bunny said...

Oooo, definately cute. If I had the bod, I'd count me in. I like Tankini Seperates for girls MY size. (Big Chest, Big Waist) Even being a super-cali-fragi-chubby girl I find it hard to find a suit that fits. So yeah :) I'm glad you found a solution for you!

Both those suits are SUPER cute. I love the grey one, its super cute. Love the faux belt :)

Willa, thank you so much for your feedback. I love number 1 too ;) The coconuts are a joke, haha!

Jillian, didn't even think of eat but I def see a little bit of betsey in there ;)

Laxloca, thanks for the suggestions ;)

Lissa, thanks!!

Saadeh, definitely check them out!

Crissy, I am so silly! I hid my endowments well while at work right? LOL!

Kathleen, thanks doll!

Fun and Makeup, thank ya!

Pudgy Bunny, Freya makes tankinis too! Definitely check them out! ;)

I´d go for the last one. You are quite pale, so a kick of color would look great on you. Also, the little ribbon on the hip might give the illusion of bigger hips and it might balance you out optically. I have no idea if this works in real life...but from the fashion tips I read by actual stylists, it could actually work that way.

And can I please have some boob before bikini season? lol I just want one cupsize more and be a sexy C. Ahhh damnit

Elle said...

I love the last one, personally--the teal trim is too cute.

I have a similar frame (and I'm only 5'1"...I'd love to be taller) and I hear is hard to find dresses, too, because of the whole too small up top/too big on the bottom or vice versa issue. Thanks for the link and I love the website!

Jessica said...

I love the first and the second Adina. But honestly I would kill to have your body!

Krasey Beauty said...

Austrian_Babe, thanks for the tip doll! I would definitely lend you some boobage if I could!

Elle, you are very welcome! Glad to hear I am not the only unique one out there!

Jessica, thanks so much <3
