The Fat Girl Stays Cool in the Summer Heat

This month's Ahead of the Curve theme is Bare for Summer.  This was a little bit of a struggle for me as I'm actually a pretty modest dresser by default.  I've never worn bikinis, not even when I was average sized.

Up until last summer I wouldn't even wear sleeveless garments but living in a hotter area made me reconsider my stance.  For me, wearing this baby doll cami from Torrid was pretty brave.
Shoulders and back are on display in the summer heat!  The capri pants are also from Torrid.

For the first time in over twenty years I also purchased a strapless bra.  Finding something to accommodate a 40HH was not easy and I tried several brands but finally settled on one from Elomi.  Since the top had straps I opted to wear the clear straps with it but the bra is pretty supportive even without straps.  It's opened up a would new world of wardrobe options I had formally excluded.
So get out there, enjoy the summer, and be confident and comfortable no matter what your size!
Don't stop with me! Find out how the other lovely Ahead of the Curve bloggers show some skin!
