This summer for me is all about self love. And I don’t just mean in terms of body image, I mean in terms of doing what I love, feeding my passions. Pushing myself to do the things I love and not have a care in the world about any body image hang ups whilst doing them. Easier said than done right? And one of my favourite things to do when it’s a gorgeous day is to head to the sea and sand!
About a month ago I was lucky enough to receive the email to say I had been chosen as a Lilly and Lime swimwear ambassador. I was so happy! I’ve known of Lilly and Lime for so long and have always lusted over their gorgeous swimwear but had never actually got around to buying. Which I now regret, as I wish I’d have tried them sooner! Lilly and Lime was founded by two mega babes Ash and Em, both fuller busted and on a mission to create beautiful swimwear. Which I think after this blog you’ll agree they’ve succeeded at!
So as part of being an ambassador I was very kindly gifted a bikini/swimsuit from their online shop, and after a few hours (spoilt for choice) I finally decided on the Suzani Stone print, balconette bikini and brief set. What I loved most about the site was that every print and pattern comes in every style, from balconette to bandeau and high waist briefs to hipster briefs. What ever your preferred style you can match your favourite patterns!
So the balconette bikini, I received mine in a 36H. Very true to size, a great fit actually! And what I love about this balconette is that you can make it strapless if you want, great for tanning and then re-strapping for extra support for a swim. The print is truly gorgeous and the colours are right up my street. This bikini top in its’ style and pattern currently runs from a size 30D to a 38H, so a pretty good size range for the fuller busted babe!
The briefs, I opted for the basic brief. I stayed away from my comfort zone of a high waist and thought suns out, tums out! I received the briefs in an AUS size 18, same size as UK sizing. If they’d have had the option for a size 20 in this style, I maybe would have sized up for extra comfort, however these were still a fabulous fit, with no digging in. The high waist briefs go up to a size 22 so perfect for if you wanted the option of a little extra comfort.
Did I mention I also received the cutest little bag with my set, perfect for popping the wet cossie in at the end of the day, without making all your other beach belongings soggy!
What I love most about Lilly and Lime swim is there’s a style for whatever confidence level or comfort level your on and for whatever you require at the beach or pool! If you want to be more protected from the sun and more comfortable whilst you surf or swim they have a wide range of rash guards. As well as some really beautiful one pieces and also a range for girls little swimmers, ranging from age 1-2 to 7-8 years.
They also ship world wide and have an online size checker from a Lilly and Lime expert, to make sure you get the perfect fit!
As always I’ve linked the bikini set mentioned in the links below. So what do you think? Will you be getting your swimsuit on this summer and heading to the beach or poolside? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear your summer plans! X
