Swimsuits for Curves Classic vs Stylish

This year I commenced exercising as one of my New Year Resolutions. Normally I give up on my resolutions after a week or two but this year I’ve actually been making great progress. Well, I was. I started swimming (even though I have an irrational fear of putting my head under the water) and I signed up for group circuit training. Despite my swearing and yelling every few minutes during a workout, I actually quite enjoyed moving my fat during the circuit exercises. I was seeing results after just a couple of weeks …. but then pain hit. Big pain.

I have suffered from bunions and foot pain since I was a child. The deformity of the front half of my feet has slowly been making its impact on the rest of my body as I age. While I may look relatively normal from the outside, on the inside I have often unbearable pain in my feet, ankles, knees and now my back. I returned to physiotherapy after a long hiatus and it is there that I was informed that the exercises I was doing were actually causing further damage. The diagnosis, stop what I was doing in favour of low-impact exercise that doesn’t require me being on my feet. Swimming is now my one and only fitness friend.

The problem with swimming for exercise as a full-grown (read: curvaceous) woman is boobs. It must sound like I’m always complaining about big boobs but they really can get in the way of simple tasks. I have lots of cute bikini’s and even one-pieces to wear to the beach or to lay by a pool, but for actual swimming … not so much.

I went on the hunt for the perfect athletic swimsuit for curvy girls. Most women can don a regular Speedo one-piece but does that work for anyone with a D-cup or bigger? Let’s see what I found. Oh and WARNING, there are rolls of fat involved …. avert your eyes if offended. Continue Reading
