It’s been all about the bikini or the fatkini in the last year or two. And I love them, I think every single day you WANT to wear a bikini you should. But that said, I’m pretty much always team plus size tankini when it comes to being active in the water. If there’s one thing we know about me, it’s that I’m a water baby.

And the second thing is that I have a long torso. Okay, so maybe you didn’t know that but it’s true. And a long torso means one piece swimsuits can be problematic. By that I mean they either drag my boobs to my waist or give me a permanent wedgie.

I’m sure I’m not alone in this struggle. Hands up if this is you too? What I used to do with one pieces was ‘size up’ and order the size above what I would normally wear. This is not always a successful move and when you wear a size 22/24, sometimes that just isn’t an option!

Enter, the plus size tankini!


Freedom for my boobs and butt by way of chopping my swimsuit in half. Yeeeesssss. Plus I still get the coverage I want when spending long days in the sun, the security being tucked away for frolicking and all that jazz. For me, a tankini works.

Lucky, more and more brands are providing options that work for me. And if you’re looking, for you too. One such brand in Queensland based (YAY) swimwear brand Capriosca and their sister brand Curvy Swimwear. The majority of my serious swimsuits are by this brand and over the years, they have become a friend of the blog.

    Oh gosh, still don’t own any but I ADORE the AUTUMN LEAVES FLOUNCY BANDEAU ONE PIECE! Just absolutely gorgeous!!

    I’ve entered and have everything crossed lol


  • Just entered from my phone and not completely confident that it’s gone through. I’m lusting on the navy/ white polka dot tankini. I’ve never owned one before, been strictly one-piece only as I’ve only ever used them for swimming laps. I’m planning on making this summer the one I finally get my gear out on an actual beach!

    • No problem Rebecca, I’ll check for you and update the list if need be. And get thee to the beach babe, it’s my happy place, I’m team beach for sure. 😉

    Love Capriosca Swimwear I own a couple of their swimsuits I normally stick to black because you know black is “slimming”. I have completed the entry form and this time I will go out of my comfort zone and try the peach blossom over the shoulder one piece. Fingers crossed

    • They really are the best! I’m SO excited you’ve selected something that is outside of your comfort-zone. Good luck lady. x
