I was well chuffed being approached by the plus size stylish women’s line, Meet Curve to style their 4 swimsuits my way. I went with a retro boudoir style as I’d just been informed I won a celebrate your sexy boudoir photo shoot package. This package included a photographer, plush location & 2 free images. It couldn’t have come at a better time!

Ranging at affordable prices from $30- $40.00 with the cutest sets all from fun trendy styles like tie dye & color blocking, gingham & strawberries to classic styles like polka dots and more!
Here I am wearing one of their polka dot bikini styles! I love the underwire bra support that holds the girls up nicely & the contrast of the black tie with the white polka dot bra is so striking. In addition, the High waisted bottoms with the cut out ties at the hips show off my curves to perfection. I’m wearing US size Large on top & bottom & in all the swimsuits depicted.
Posing by the pool added to the ease of the shoot & when I jumped into it, the coverage of the swimsuit sustained, a testament to its quality.
I went with a retro vibe for this entire shoot as I love that 50’s style era. Pairing it with white cat eyed shades & floral red & pink earrings really complimented my red lips & hair.
For look 2, I decided to set the scene with gummies & a lollipop. I found this style of the gingham print with strawberries so playful & wanted my surroundings to mimic that.
As in true boudoir fashion, a white bed was at my disposal so I made the most of it by partnering with my photographer to display the gummies all around me & just have fun with it! We used the Lollipop as an added prop & the red of that played into the red of my hair, lipstick, retro sunnies & sky high platform heels. This created a saucy look that superseded my expectations!
In addition I had to get my medical device in on this shoot as a loud & proud type 1 diabetic! Rocking my continuous glucose monitor, covered in a skin grip, (a precut adhesive) protecting my medical device from coming off in the pool was amazing! I love that this Skin Grip matches my skin tone perfectly whilst blending in allowing the fun print of the suit to pop!
I appreciated the gathered front panel detailing of the swimsuit bottom as it was so flattering on my stomach. The sweetheart cut of the Underwire bra has adjustable straps for the perfect fit. Overall this suit screamed more retro to me out of all the suits.
The V-neck tie dye Wrap Halter one piece swimsuit in color multi was what I chose doe look 3. This affordable suit at under $40.00, was so comfortable. I felt this look didn’t need much being vibrant in pattern & color so I paired it with a straw hat, Large gold hoops & retro brown Sunnies.
I loved the print most of all, the surplice plunge neckline & self tie halter straps, of this one piece swimsuit!
For look 4 the blue floral print halter tie neck Bikini top & high rise bottom really offset my red hair in the best possible way.
I love the v- neck style, wire-free, self-tie halter straps bra that held the girls sky high with amazing support. I went with a nude lippie so the suit could stand out more, long floral bloom earrings & transparent heels took care of the finished look. The heels elongated my legs helping them look endless.
Furthermore for the second location of this suit, I added some nude shades, straw hat, straw tote with some daisies & posed on top of a marble kitchen counter top! It just happened to have barn doors & a clock behind me which gave it a “wholesome” retro vibe tieing the entire look together. This Daisy print was my favorite fit wise as it was the most comfortable & felt effortless to wear!
