Palms & Polka Dot Crop Top//Albion Fit

Screen Shot 2016-07-06 at 12.15.40 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-06 at 12.08.29 PMIf you’re tall and curvy like me, you may struggle with the following issues when finding a swimming suit.

A. Most styles aren’t as flattering on your hourglass figure and make you look “bigger” than you actually are (especially in pictures).

B. The torso’s aren’t long enough so you are spilling out the top or if you pull the top up you look like you’re rocking aerobic wear from the 80s. Hey, if you can rock that look, rock it. Or if the chest is covered there isn’t usually support making your chest look like rocks in socks. So, so sad. 🙁

I was also raised in a home wear we were taught to be modest. Modest meaning, chest, stomach and booty covered (no thong bikini bottoms allowed), which would put you in the one-piece swimsuit camp… Which brings up the earlier mentioned problems of having a perma-weggie or nicknaming yourself “Busty McBusterson”, both situations leaving me uncomfortable or feeling flat (literally).

There was a bit of an internal battle coming to terms with the trade off of wearing a two piece that covered my top and bottom (with out ANY cleavage, woohoo!) showing a few inches of skin above my belly button. For me, I feel more confident, modest and comfortable than I ever have in a one-peice I was spilling out of. With the added bonus of actually having the support of a two piece I’m also able to keep my head held high knowing I won’t have to adjust, you busty girls know what I mean.

I’ve been seeing the Albion Fit activewear and swimming suits everywhere and I finally went in to try them. The prints are adorable, the quality is extremely high and the fit feels like it was tailored for my body! #Finally

You get what you pay for ladies, so invest in a swimsuit that will wear the way you want.
