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.

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Cool Crop Tops Under $50

If there’s one good thing that’s come out of the hipster movement, it’s the crop top. They have this effortlessly cool vibe about them, like somehow when we slip one on we’ll magically transform into Alexa Chung or Sienna Miller. But I’ll be the first to admit, crop tops are a tricky bunch. Unless you have abs of steel, don’t get those microscopic ones and pair them with low cut shorts. For everyone else, crops look great with high-waisted pants, shorts and skirts. And as long as there’s no midriff peeking out, you can virtually wear them to any and all occasions. So here’s to you hipsters, thanks for giving back.

Megan’s Style Challenge: More Midi Skirts, Please

Megan Midi Skirts

The Frisky’s promotions editor Megan is so cute — and she’s always rockin’ adorbs skirts. The other day, she came in wearing an ikat print skirt that she’d hand-altered because it was too long. Skirts, said Megan, are never the right length. She wanted me to help her find a few midi-length skirts (those are skirts that fall below the knees but above the calf) that could be worn all year long — and she had a budget of $100 per outfit. Good thing personal shopping is pretty much my favorite thing to do. I was able to find her a slew of great items–and all on the cheap, too.

1. ASOS Sleeveless MidiDress with Pleated Skirt and Belt, $54.30
2. Pieces Mille Chunky Chain Short Necklace, $30.55
3. ASOS Aztec Skirt, $61.09
4. Ann Taylor Boatneck Tee, $28
5. Dorothy Perkins Blue Polka Dot Midi Skirt, $44
6. Express Lace Shoulder V-Neck, $16.14
7. Soulmates Draped Lace Jacket, $39.00
8. Trotters Sandals, $25.50

Click through to see how I put ‘em together for around $300. Keep reading »
