Just so you know, one of my favorite trends right now is black and white swimsuits. Read more

I am on a serious black and white kick right now. This trend is all I want to wear! And now that it’s officially hot here in L.A. all I can think about is lounging by my pool. Why can’t I carry this obsession over to swimwear? I rounded up my 10 favorite black and white plus size swimwear pieces! From bikinis to one pieces. It’s here. Read more
You may be asking yourself why I’m hosting a swimwear giveaway in the middle of December. It’s simple, winter in the U.S. is a great time to head to warmer climates! A lot of people do it. I don’t know about you but I’ve been thinking about Hawaii lately and how amazing a Sorella swimsuit would fit right in! Read more
Summer is officially here! And I can’t believe I forgot to wish you a “Happy First Day of Summer!” Bad bad blogger! Well…I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far. Have any of you hit the beach or the pool yet?
The heat is definitely rising in parts of the country and I know you’ll be reaching for your swimwear soon. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be grabbing my swimsuit and my new cover-up.
I’m not going to lie, I’ve always wished Everything But Water sold plus sizes. For so many years, I was just like you walking past their store in the mall and NEVER entering. Well, we don’t have to worry about that anymore!
“The largest retailer in swim and resortwear in the US is proud to announce the availability of plus size collections from Becca Etc By Rebecca Virtue, Sorella Swim and Michael Kors nationwide in-stores and online!”
I was so happy when I read that! LOL! I know I’m a dork! And I didn’t know they also sold accessories!! They really do have “Everything But Water!” I was sent a Sorella swimsuit and I looooooove it! Just in time for summer!
Check out their selection of plus sizes here and let me know what you think!
As you know, I had a chance to preview the new plus size BECCA ETC swimwear collection and I pretty much love it! And I wanted to share my favorite of all the lines-Animal Instincts.
I guess I’m a sucker for python print and I’m in love with the colors too! There are so many different styles, as you can see on the beautiful Tara Lynn below.
These are quality suits ladies! You are definitely going to get what you pay for. There are different options too-various two pieces, one-pieces, and cover ups. Some of the other bloggers that attended are even eyeing the cover ups as possible dresses! They’re such fashionistas!
If you want to see the other lines from the collection, you can view them all on the Curves and Chaos Facebook page here.

Crystal Renn strutted her stuff down the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week catwalk for the Gottex Spring 2011 line today. There’s no doubt she’s a beautiful woman, but has our poster girl for plus size models lost her plus size appeal?
In my honest opinion, if she’s happy with the way she looks and she is comfortable in her own skin, then I’m happy for her and anyone for that matter; regardless of their size. I guess compared to the size 2 on the runway she is still a plus size model. And Gottex does make extended sizes in their swimwear line. The coral swimsuit is AMAZING!
Do you still consider Crystal Renn a plus size model?
I would wear any one of them proudly in all of my curvy glory! Alisi is an Australian company, but they do ship internationally. You can even find them on these US and UK web sites, but it looks like sizes go pretty quickly. So get on it!
Let’s make a day at the beach or just lounging by the pool fashionably classic.
