My First Fatkini!!!

I'm sure you've all seen the amazing City Chic 2014 Swim + Resort look book featuring this stand out neon bikini that seemingly has the whole internet talking. I've wanted to try out the 'fatkini' trend for a few seasons now thanks to the plus size fashion blogosphere who have really inspired me. But as no retailers in Australia were offering a plus size bikini (that I was aware of) and the fact that I really wanted to be able to try one on before I made the purchase just in case they weren't for me I've just not bought one until now. Being body positive is all well and good but being comfortable in my skin whilst at the beach or pool was at the forefront of my mind - I knew I had to look and feel good in the fatkini I bought and trying before buying was part of that for me. So as soon as I saw City Chic were releasing a fatkini as part of their 2014 resort collection I knew I had to head in to the store and try it on! The best bit for me is that they're sold as separates so if like me you're smaller on the top than you are on the bottom or vice versa you can choose the perfect size and fit for you. So I'm wearing a XS on top and a M on the bottom which fits me perfectly.

I just love the fab neon colours!!!

I was recently on Sydney radio station 2SER talking about the fatkini phenomenon and body positivity. You can listen to the podcast of that show here.

Remember - to get a bikini body all you have to do is put a bikini on your body!!!

This colouful kaftan is the perfect summer cover up! I just want it to be hot already so I can head to the beach and swan around in this whole look. Maybe I should book a Bali getaway for just that?

Are you excited for City Chic's first ever Fatkini? Let me know in the comments bellow.
