#LoveNBD with Swimwear 365*

A few weeks ago I was asked by Swimwear 365 if I wanted to take part in their count down towards National Bikini Day on the 5th of July. With my love for swimming, seaside and pool I said yes in an instant.

 On this day in 1946 the bikini was invented and since then it has become as usual to wear a bikini to the beach as wearing a smile on your face when you're happy.

As a plus size girl I know that it is not always easy to enjoy going to seaside and wearing bikinis. I used to always wear a swimsuit or tankini, but this year I have been wearing bikinis without even thinking. They feel so liberating in a way and why not get a nice tan on my tummy as well and it makes it so much easier to get a nice tan on my back. However, I don't tan very easy so I have to be careful with applying sun cream as I don't want to get burnt.

I was kindly sent a bikini and a cut out with the NBD logo. I chose a bikini top from Panache (HERE)*  with wires as my boobies need a lot of support and a high waist swimwear briefs from Sunflair(HERE)*. It fitted perfectly and it gave my boobs a great lift. I wore them the whole day and it was really comfortable.

 I don't do much special to prepare for the bikini season apart from the obvious like doing your bikini line and waxing my legs. The only thing I'm very conscious of is to apply plenty of sunscreen in factor 50 so I don't burn my very fair Scandinavian skin and also apply after sun when I get home.

I feel so happy and proud to have overcome the fear of using a two piece as I felt amazing at the beach wearing it.

Are you going to wear a bikini for National Bikini Day. If you are, please don't forget to tag your photo with #lovenbd so I can see all your photos.
