Aussie Curves- Resort

This week's outfit challenge is resort- and I used the opportunity to also play catch-up by using this as my swimwear theme post too. These swimmers were part of a save-up buy earlier in the year. I purchased a bikini, a short swim skirt, and the swim skirt you see me wearing, from Land's End. They were on special, of course. 

I'm quite happy with the bikini top, it has adjustable straps, padded cups and underwire, so it's basically like wearing a bra. I haven't worn it to the beach yet, so I can't say whether it's uncomfortable to swim in. My size is DD, and I ordered a 22W size, which fit perfectly. The swim skirt has inbuilt undies, so I'll be able to mix and match with other tops.

I can't say that I'm completely comfortable wearing swimmers yet, but I'm on the way there.

Aussie Curves (catch up)- Black and White

I'm playing Aussie Curves challenge catch up at the moment, now my child is home from hospital and I'm feeling sufficiently recovered. I had my outfit all planned for black and white- not my usual colour scheme, but sometimes a pattern is loud enough that I'll reconsider the lack of colour. Also, I can't resist polka dots. 

This dress is from Asos Curve. It's comfortable and a good length. This is a 24, but if you have boobs bigger than a DD cup, you may want to size up. It's just a teeny bit tight on top on me.

I had fun finding accessories to match this dress. The sunnies and white hair flower are from Kmart, and my lovely polka dot feather earrings were made for me for my birthday. The bag was an op shop find.
