City Chic Bikini – Every body is a bikini body!

December 23, 2016

This post is a collaboration with Shopping links.

I don’t know if I will ever get the hang of Melbourne weather. So far it’s  been pretty cold for what I’m used to at this time of year. It’s starting to warm up though and I know soon enough I will be complaining that it’s too hot! I was gifted this City Chic bikini a few months ago and only found the weather nice enough recently to finally shoot it.

Now first up, YAY to City Chic for releasing bikinis! They have a few different options, but I was drawn to the colours in this bird print set. The top I went for in a 20c as that is about the size I wear (I am one of those super naughty ladies who hasn’t been professionally fitted for a bra) and the fit is great around the chest but a little big in the cups. That is pretty normal for me as I have small boobs. The top has great support though as it has wire! It’s basically a bra in swimsuit material.

The bottoms I went for a size 22 because I wanted them a bit spacious. They are super comfy and I love the way they sit. They don’t sit as high on me as they do on the model on the CC site, but I still like that they are a higher waist.

It was a little bit scary at first rocking a bikini out at the beach, but it was also a hell of a lot of fun! I’ve worn a bikini before, but not out to a beach. I’m very much of the opinion that ALL bodies are bikini bodies, and that you can wear whatever YOU want to wear.

    You look absolutely amazing! That bikini looks perfect on you, like it was made for you. I still haven’t got the confidence to rock a bikini, but I wish I did. Maybe one day… xx

  • That bikini looks so good on you! I wish it was warm enough to swim here, I’m keeping my fingers crossed it’s warmer after Christmas…

  • Thank you! Melbourne has been all over the shop weather wise, but that’s kinda normal. Hope you get some lovely beach days in!

  • It’s certainly a step! I’d worn a bikini in my own place, but not really out in public before. The beach wasn’t at all crowded, so I was thankful for that, but baby steps!

    What a freakin’ babe! I love the print on that swimsuit and the cut is glorious. I can just imagine you all dolled up with pin-up hair and juicy pink lips, frolicking on the sand.

  • You look great in it, love the print. I haven’t worn or owned a swimsuit for years. Even although I live in a seaside town, I’m terrified of swimming. I only did it when forced at school and tried to get out of it as often as I could! I’d like to think if I fell in water I learnt enough not to drown. I just don’t enjoy getting my face wet and the smell of chlorine is enough to make me really anxious!
