Must Haves: 9 Pretty Plus-Size Bikinis

Earlier this year, blogger Gabi Fresh made waves when she collaborated with Swimsuits for All to launch the Fatkini. Inspired by the Harmony Korine movie “Spring Breakers,” Fresh’s collection is full of bold, bright color and fun styles. “I wanted to give [plus-size women] cuter things,” Fresh explained in an interview with The Daily Beast. “All I want for us is to have the same ability to go shopping like everyone else and have those options available.”

We loved her designs, and wanted to find a bunch more cool plus-size bikinis, but it proved a more difficult undertaking than we thought. Even go-to plus-size retailers seem to be shilling belly-covering tankinis in place of straight up bikinis. To me, the relative dearth of plus-size bikini options speaks to a larger notion — seemingly even prevalent in the plus sizde marketplace — that bigger women should cover up their bellies and be ashamed of the way their stomachs look. But plus-size women should have an equal opportunity to show off their curves in bikinis that fit and flatter them, too.

Thankfully, more and more plus-size clothiers are catching on. We found nine totally awesome plus-size bikinis that’ll look great on every beach.

As we know all too well, it’s bikini body season, which means it’s time to grab a copy of your favorite women’s fitness magazine and get the scoop on all the latest, totally fresh tips and advice on everything from flat abs to hot sex! But hey, wait a second. Those two covers sure look a lot alike, don’t they? Would you believe they are two totally different magazines that were published two years apart? Because they are. Sigh. Some things — and by “things,” I mean “women’s magazines” — never change. [Reddit]

6 “Bikini Body” Truths To Remember This Summer

Bikini Body

While waiting in line at the grocery store this weekend, I was glancing at the magazine rack when I saw a tabloid cover celebrating its annual “Best And Worst Bikini Bodies” list. As I examined the close-up photos of cellulite and fat rolls accompanied by helpful headlines like “Yuck!” and “Guess Whose Stretch Marks!” I felt, to borrow a phrase from my friend’s five-year-old niece, “sad and mad.” I’m sad to know that, by this magazine’s standards, my own body would surely earn a high ranking on the “worst” list. I’m mad that we are still engaging in such hateful, public body-shaming. And I’m fed up with the glorious season of summer being completely taken over by the ridiculous notion that you aren’t allowed to enjoy it unless you look a certain way. I think it’s time we do a little “bikini body” fact-checking, don’t you? Here are six indisputable truths that I hope we can all keep in mind as the weather — and the pressure to look perfect — heats up… Keep reading »

Today, I had a long discussion with The Frisky ladies about “lady lumps” — that term from the Black Eyed Peas song “My Humps.” I have wondered for years now if “lady lumps” are boobs or butt and nobody has ever been able to answer me definitively. Julie thinks “lady lumps” are boobs, but looking at the picture of Coco in her new bathing suit contraption, I’m having an “I’ll know lady lumps when I see them” moment. I feel fairly certain that “lady lumps” are butt cheeks.

“Flexing the top of my booty muscle.. see dedication pays off. #legs #muscle = Power,” said Coco of this photo.

Also, she’s thinking about getting into body building and I wonder if she’ll wear this to the beach. That is all.[Daily Mail UK]

Every Kate Upton Magazine Cover Ever

This week, high fashion mag Jalouse released its latest issue — with boob-tastic Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton striking a pose. Kate, who manages to channel Anna Nicole Smith (in a good way!), typically ends up with most of her clothes off, so it’s nice to see her explore her haute couture side. What do you think of her Jalouse look? If it’s not really your thing, then check out Kate’s other covers above!

Today is the 65th anniversary of the bikini, a tortuous little item of clothing devised by a Frenchman named Louis Réard. Aptly named for the testing grounds of the Atomic Bomb, the bikini revolutionized swimwear for millions of women.

Happy birthday bikini!
