Flaunt Your Shape with Coco Reef
Swimwear season is in full swing and as a curvy girl I know all too well the stress and anxiety that we place on ourselves to have that perfect body once the weather starts warming up. For years I was ashamed to go to the pool or beach because I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I didn’t feel comfortable in this curvy body.
A lot of you ask me how I’m so confident and honestly it took a lot of work for me to get to where I am at now but I can certainly tell you it was a mix of two very big things. The first was taking the time to get to know myself from the inside out and loving and appreciating my inner beauty, which in turned led me to embracing my outer beauty and physical body.
The second was seeing so many other women embracing their bodies. These women owned their curves and accepted themselves for who they are and what they look liked and demanded that brands do the same, which in turned led to so many amazing designers and brands FINALLY creating clothing for US and our beautiful curvy bodies.
With that being said, swimsuit season has become something super exciting for me to look forward to because as curvy girls we have soooooo many amazing options to chose from now a days. When it comes to swuimsuits, quality, style, and comfort are the top things I look for so imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon yet another great brand to add to my list!
The swimsuits I wore on my trip to Miami recently were both from Coco Reef swimwear and not having the perfect "summer body" (whatever that means anyway) certainly did not stop me from heading to the beach thanks to my cute and flattering swimwear. Coco Reef is a combination of support, comfort and functionality. I personally love that their wide assortment of swimwear is sold as mix-and-match separates for the ultimate style flexibility. Their swimwear is all bra sized which is crucial for my 36 DD chest size. I really like that their tops have underwire support and that the soft cups are removable. Certain styles even have detachable straps and a contour shaper built in which I’m a huge fan of. The black top that I am wearing is actually a Five Way Convertible Swim Top. Yes, you read that right, this top can be worn 5 different ways! Imagine having to only pack one swimsuit for vacation and getting 5 different looks out of it while you're there...WINNING!
QUALITY is probably one the most important aspects of swimwear for me right after style. I’ve always believed in quality over quantity when it comes to curvy girl swim because I don’t want to wear something that will fall apart on my body after a few dips in the pool or beach. Coco Reef swimwear is made with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber technology to create a longer-lasting, shape-retaining swimsuit. This extraordinary fiber technology allows swimwear to last up to 10 times longer than those that contain an ordinary elastane. We spend so much time, effort, and money finding the perfect swimsuit and its good to know that Coco Reef is made with Lycra® Xtra Life™ to extend the life of your swimwear and make sure that it last for summers to come.
Coco Reef has an amazing selection of plus size swim in addition to their regular sizes so whether you are plus or not, you are bound to find something fun and stylish to wear this summer. Here are a few of my personal favorite styles:
- Coco Reef Diva High Waisted Bikini Bottom
- Coco Reef Diva Power Underwire Bikini Top
- Coco Reef Aura Ruffle Underwire Crop Top
- Coco Reef Power Pant Bikini Bottom
- Coco Reef Aura Ruffle Crop Top Bikini
