Plus size women – we sweat swimsuit season. Our number one priority is to find a swimsuit that fits our plus size figures. Priority number two; locate a swimsuit that fits and is figure flattering to our body shape. With that in mind, I was eager to review BeachCandy bathing suits. Brit B. the Orange County California-based designer of these luxury swimsuits, is confident that her high-end bathing suits cater to all ages and sizes. Some of her swimwear is custom-made with Swarovski Crystal detail, resulting in fashionable and sexy BeachCandy swimsuits.
Figure flattering swimsuits
While there are many BeachCandy swimsuit styles to select from, in sizes ranging from extra small to extra large, I chose the “Elysia” shirred one piece in navy. The swimsuit provided full coverage from the back of the bathing suit to the all important stomach area. I confess that I was self conscious with the low plunging neckline, but after I received compliments from the women in my deep water aerobics class, I felt comfortable with the swimsuit style.
Crystal Beach Candy
As the name implies, BeachCandy is a clever play on eye candy for men and women. Swimwear designer and owner Brit B. added the option of purchasing Swarovski crystals to each BeachCandy swimsuit. I can’t speak to how the swimsuit holds up to wash and wear with the addition of Swarovski crystals. I can tell you that the suit holds up well to chlorine and salt water conditions, holds its shape, is well made and drys fast. Color options for the “Elysia” shirred one piece swimsuit are black licorice, white chocolate, carmel and navy. The “Elysia” swimsuit retails for $164. without candy (crystals.)
Located in Corona del Mar, California, the BeachCandy Swimwear Boutique is the place to find the perfect swimsuit.
