My Ideal Plus Size Swimsuit!

Did anyone else see Gemma Collins on ITV’s Splash! a couple of weeks ago?

The reason this stuck in my mind, was because I LOVED her swimsuit. It’s the only one I’ve ever seen that covers all the areas I feel so self conscious about whenever I have to wear one! It’s long sleeved, wraps around the stomach to create a more flattering waistline, and covers the top of the thighs.

It covers all areas!

If I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these, I would feel much more confident to stroll along the beach, or walk past hot men by the pool on holiday, rather than wrapping a sarong or towel around my body out of pure embarrassment! 

I know it’s all in the mind, so I should just walk around in a tiny bikini with pride, but after giving birth to my gigantic son, my stomach is a completely different, less flattering shape, and I’ve still not adjusted mentally to this!

I’m not the only girl to appreciate the sequinned-number, designed by Gemma; After she completed her dive on Splash! she already had 2000 emails from women enquiring about it! Thankfully, Gemma confirmed on her Boutique‘s Twitter that we will be able to buy it soon: “I will be bringing out swimwear this year – watch this space,” and I imagine there will be a range of equally amazing designs she will add to the range!

Since seeing the swimsuit, I’ve tried to search for similar designs online, but I’ve found it difficult to find anything remotely like it!  (If you know of any similar designs, please get in touch!)

I did, however, come across some other cute designs that would also flatter the curvier shape on Simply Be‘s website, including this black swimdress which has a great skirt that would certainly flatter my stomach area! They also have a gorgeous Magisculpt swimdress which I’ve just noticed is in their sale, so this will also be added to my wishlist!

Now I just need to work on finding a reason to wear a swimsuit like this!
