So let me get this out of the way first - Its taken me a while to post these photos thanks to the body 'low' I seem to be annoying myself with at the moment (Gorging in Rome didn't help this). Saying that, I've always been one to love blogs mainly because of the variety of relatable people who write them. I've always liked to be a part of that, and having seen hundreds of unique bodies in my line of work - I think we can all accept that our bodies are all different, yet somehow entirely the same. I may not have the forever lusted Victorias Secret body, but this is me, and there will be plenty of other body shapes parading around the beach, so here I am in all of my pear shaped glory, scars and all. 

The vibrant colours, the amazing floral print, and especially the fit of this bikini are all perfect, and something I've come to expect from Seafolly and Simply Beach - I'm in love with this bikini all round. When you're lacking a little in the confidence department, a poor fitting or un-supporting bikini is not going to do any favours, and this must be where Seafolly get their unmistakable reputation for value. Both of the bikini tops are delightfully shaped and padded, and whilst my favourite is the vintage bra style top, the bandeau is probably more flattering on me - Its so difficult to choose! If like me, you absolutely need pick and mix swimwear to please your odd top to bottom sized body, you'll be pleased to know they're all sold as separates, and Simply Beach are awesome with their delivery and returns. Theres a variety of tops and bottoms to suit a range of body types (including ruched bottoms and D+ supported tops), I just need holiday plans and the tan to go with it now! 

What do you think? 
Would you wear this?

  1. I genuinely think you look absolutely gorgeous (in a 'I promise I'm not hitting on you,' way). I've been feeling a bit self conscious lately, but you're right, a body is a body and as long as you're healthy & functioning, there really isn't anything to complain about :) xx

  3. your body isn't "odd" sized, in fact me and most of my friends are pear-shaped too (of varying degrees). although im being a huge hypocrite saying this because i always think my hips are "too large" and "if they were a dress size or two smaller" or "if i was a few inches taller". but seeing your figure in your bikini makes me challenge my own inner-voice because your body looks HOT. and this bikini is so pretty, very retro and gorgeous.

    acceptance and confidence are key to rocking the bikini, not starving yourself for a month or setting unrealistic gym targets. and spray tan is always a instant boost of temporary confidence (as long as you dont do a Ross from friends).

    kudos for posting these pics, be proud.. you look amazing :)

  5. You are so brave, I wish I had your confidence, you look great by the way. I am pear shaped too and really wish my top and bottom half matched. It makes me feel odd like someone has put 2 different bodies together! Did you have the pictures taken in a studio, they look fantastic.
