Bikinis & Booty’s

Hello readers its me Brittany SMB Guest Blogger and newest Skinny Minority intern! And if your like me you’re definitely loving the sunny days (though they’re may be few) and ready for the heat. SUMMER is almost here and its time to show some SKIN!! The summer is the best time to be curvy and confident. Unfortunately, thats not always the case, especially when it comes to beach and swimwear.

Question: What is the one scariest thing for a woman to shop for?

Swimwear is one the hardest things for a woman of almost every size to find. So what can you expect to see? I put together the top must haves for the Curvy and Confident woman this summer!


Marilyn Monroe

When you think of 1950’s swimsuits you think of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, the bombshells, and the pin-ups. They were playful, curvaceous and had extreme sex appeal.

Some features to look out for:

  • one-pieces with cinched-in waists, sweetheart necklines and halters
  • high-waist bottoms
  • shirred sides that accentuate the waist and hips
  • fuller-cupped tops

psst… our founder Karima wanted this exact suit but it was sold out in the pre-order. Moving On!

Ruffles… Hold The Chips

For women who like a distinct, feminine way for their swimsuits to standout by the pool and at the beach: ruffled bikinis and ruffled swimsuits are one of the swimwear trends for the coming season. Sweet and playful and carefully placed, ruffles can hide, maximize, or minimize your curves!

Forever 21+

Magnificently Mismatched

Rules were made to be broken, and this summer it is no exception. Whether in a tankini or bikini, the two-piece options have just widened. A to pull this off, just make sure you stay within the same color story!
