Not Your Grandmother’s Swim Dress

I will admit, I am not a huge fan of swim dresses. A large part of that is due to it being my go to swimwear as a chubby teen. Like many plus size women, the beach/pool was a dreaded space. Swim dresses, oversize t-shirts and dad's shorts were a regular for me. It was only later in life that I realized – hey, I am at the beach, why am I so covered up!

So since then I've experimented with many different swimsuit styles from high-waisted bikinis (here & here), to one-piece suits with sexy cutouts, to traditional tankinis (here, here, here). But in all of that experimentation I haven't found my way back to the swim dress.

Unfortunately, after all of these years it still hold a negative place for me. It meant covering up and hiding.  Plus many of the styles available were not up my alley and honestly more like something my grandmother would wear.

That is until I found this super cute number from Always for Me. The polka dot print and the retro flare really called my attention. Plus you ladies know that I've been on an "I love the color blue" wave for a few weeks so immediate the bright bold cobalt color screamed at me.

I recently wore this suit in Tulum, Mexico for a full day of excursions and I felt cute and completely supported. So ladies, if you are looking for a great suit with a little more coverage – than this is definitely the one!!
