Welcome to #EKSwimWeek! You guys have been asking me to put together a plus size list of my fave swimwear, so I couldn't let us get too far into the Summer without doing just that! This post is all about one of my favorite trends; Vintage Swimwear. As a plus size babe, it can be hard to find great swimwear that 1) Covers what you want covered, 2) Looks like something from this decade and 3) Doesn't cost a fortune. At a size 22/24, I have had my fair share of let downs from brands that didn't get my body type. To be honest, at some point I realized half of the problem was my lack of body acceptance. A while back I worked really hard at loving myself, and now I'm living life in the moment and taking on the challenge of loving my body at all stages. I'm going to do my best to bring you swimwear suggestions that allow you to move forward this Summer in a suit that empowers you. I got you, girlfriend!


Polka Dotted Plus Size Suits

Obviously my fave vintage inspired look! I love my suit that I scooped from Unique Vintage. It fits well and is a vibrant color. This suit has straps that go around the neck, but I have tied them in back for a strapless look. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see more details of this suit. I've included a roundup of other polka dotted plus size swimwear from them and a couple other brands! Note for Unique Vintage shopping: I am wearing a 4X in the red suit (pictured), so size up!
