Dilemma! Dilemma!  Sorry to greet you with a slight negativity but this is quite a mini crisis.  All these online shops sprouting left and right like mushrooms and nothing seems appealing to a full figured girl like me.

I have yet to find my go-to shop for the sporadic and spontaneous summer outing emergencies that will surely fill up my idle schedule. Department stores aren’t much of a help either.  Save me oh Lord from floral print tankinis!

Nevertheless, a girl would just have to make do with improvising and being faithful to a set of big girl rules that work for you.  These are my plus size summer fashion tips!

  • Figure out what body type you belong to.  Apple, pear, or hour glass.
  • Abide by the laws of the color wheel.  If you’re dark skinned, wear bright colors.  Earth colors for fair gals.
  • Don’t just go with the plain black one piece right away.  Look fun by mix and matching different colors.
  • Dare to wear a two piece. Everybody have stretch marks, I say KEBS!  I’ve been looking around for high waist two piece swimsuits like the one Taylor Swift was spotted wearing.
  • A belt would be a nice addition.
  • Arm yourself with sheer or knitted cover ups. It sure gives you that confidence boost.
  • Don’t look down while walking around the beach or resort.  Chin up and put a smirk on that adorable face.

My summer officially kicked off last weekend.  Dakong Bato at Dalaguete Cebu was indeed the perfect place to start the summer frolics.  What a big splash we made!

The better I like her the better I feed her
The better I feed her the bigger the figure
The bigger the figure the more I can love
