Morning folks! Summer is almost here, YAY thank goodness, it’s time to talk swimming togs. Swimmers. Bathers. You know. Those things. And thanks to the crew at Sequins and Sand I can do that with some resort wear thrown in. I’ve saved a couple of photos of the Aussie Curves Swimwear week so we can talk more about it all then.

But first, let me introduce you to the beautiful Rainbow Beach. Gorgeous, blue skies as far as the eye can see and some gorgeous surf beaches if that’s your sort of thing. I love the ocean and it’s really my sort of thing. I like bobbing in the waves out past the break. That’s my beach style. And when we go to the beach we are there ALL day. We take shade, towels, food, snacks and buckets of sunscreen.

So I put something on and it’s got to last me all day. And be comfortable. And block the sun.

Let’s talk these togs. I’m a pretty standard size 22. I go up rarely these days and sometimes down. Now don’t confuse that with a vanity size 22. An actual size 22. Australian standard sizing. And long in the torso. So when I ordered these swimmers as part of the post I was nervous about the fit. Normally I would size up to compensate for the length if there is a size available.

So, how did it go?

They arrived and they are a little short in length but nothing major which makes them pretty bang on in regards to sizing. So if you shop Target or Kmart and would buy an 18, buy an 18. If you want a little more length and there’s a larger size available, order that one. I’ve worn these to the beach and to the pool to do laps and they hold up beautifully. Especially with the laps, no issue with straps moving around at all. Win.

So then it was TIME. Time to kick it up a notch and dress for lunch. Add a floppy hat, some cute ankle strap wedges and the jersey twist necklace and I was set. I also took the chance to switch into the Capriosca Swimwear Sky Bow One Piece which is a dreamy aqua colour and not quite as distracting below the light white fabric. I mean check it out, super cute!

I mean, can a woman catch A BREAK from this wind?

Of course not, don’t be ridiculous. So let’s talk this Isle of Mine white dress. Now it’s a one size item, you can actually see Nikki from Styling You in the same dress on her blog {she wears a size 14/16}. The free-size indicates up to a size 20’ish. As you can see mine is a little short but otherwise really roomie. And keep in mind I’m almost 5″11.

Pairing this loose and light dress with ankle strap heels, a floppy hat and the jersey fabric necklace is an easy way to dress up the simple style of the dress for a lunch out and about. Especially in a beachside town like Rainbow Beach where there are people in togs wandering the streets with people dressed for weddings. It’s quite the mix. And the colours are just divine.

Aqua, orange and the sneak peek of pink. Love.

And the swimmers? How did they go for fit? Very similar in size as the navy ones above however, these ones have adjustable straps. It adds a little length where I needed it. I haven’t had these ones in the pool but after wearing them for these photos I had them on until dark. Only having a small adjustment here or there. That’s a win in my books. To have a two from two success with a one-piece is awesome for me. I’ve been wearing tankini’s for years to avoid this issue.
