• Recap & Thoughts | #BeachBodyNotSorry 2016 •

It’s already pretty cold outside but I still want to quickly talk about this year’s #BeachBodyNotSorry project and have a look at the beach outfits I wore this season. I kind of felt that plus-sized beach bodies were more present than ever in 2016. Of course there were a few very important moments like → Ashley Graham on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” or the most recent → “All Woman Project” launched by Clementine Desseaux and Charli Howard (featuring some amazing beach wear by Phylyda – I hope I can work with this brand next year!). But we also had bloggers showing their beach bodies everywhere and it makes me proud to say that I’m a part of this – again.

Unfortunately, this time I couldn’t show as many looks as → last year – on the one hand, there simply was a lack of new beach wear (I just didn’t want to wear everything again, but neither did I want to spend loads of money on new stuff – cause our summer in Germany isn’t long enough to hoard uncountable masses of bikinis and swimsuits), on the other hand, I missed almost 90% of our summer because I was very sick. Even beginning to shoot before the start of the official beach season wasn’t that helpful, so I only managed to do five looks (plus two “covered” beach styles, meaning: one with a kaftan and another one wearing transparent stuff over my bikini).

So let’s recap my #BeachBodyNotSorry looks of 2016…

Lead actor of today’s post is definitely the balloon, right? ;) I was the happiest kid ever when we got to shoot this look with my gorgeous customized (it has the colors of my dress!) balloon from BOOOM BALLOON. I had received a press kit with one of these lovely balloons and when I asked her, Paloma was so kind to create a special balloon for me that matches my dress as best as possible. ♥ I can’t even say how happy this colorful thing made me during my sick days at home (especially since I completely missed those two weeks of hot summer here in Hamburg!), and now, after almost four weeks, it’s getting a bit wrinkled. So if you’re thinking about getting one: it’s totally worth it and long-lasting fun (nooo, I didn’t do weird stuff like a five-year-old with the remaining helium of the first one – shhh!)! ;)

But let’s not forget this amazing dress! :) The designers at persona by Marina Rinaldi created a stunning piece and I love the colors and light fabric (Crêpe de Chine) – it’s a perfect summer dress (and probably the last one for this year – we already shot our first fall look yesterday!). I wore it when I was part of the jury for this year’s Plus Size Fashion Days and recreated my look for this photo shoot. :)

I’ve collaborated with persona and some fellow international bloggers for a special little summer project and my first #BeachBodyNotSorry post of this year. :)

By the way: you can already see the same swimsuit (but totally different evening looks) at → Susie, → Iris and → Theodora. Don’t hesitate to check the hashtag #mypersonasummerday on Instagram to see who else is sharing her beach look and how you can spend your summer day with persona. ;)

As a huge fan of African prints, this swimsuit was my first choice and since we all fell in love with the same suit, I had to buy it myself cause there was none left (the other girls were faster, haha – it-piece alert!), but I had this idea in mind and didn’t want to change anything. But that’s fine because now I’ve got another swimsuit for you to win today! It’s not the same one but a great basic swimsuit with lovely details, which will hopefully make a girl very happy and ready for this summer! ♥

At least by buying something from my own money (I know, people always think that bloggers get everything for free, so that’s why I’m mentioning this today!), I’m totally allowed to say that this was a good investment (but believe me – I never lie when it comes to gifted products!). It is a very cool swimsuit, of high quality and perfect for women with fuller figures (and those who have more bust than me – so they can fill out the cups, which you can also remove if you don’t like them). ;) This is definitely a swimsuit for every day and it also looks great if you want to incorporate it into your evening look – and that’s just how we’ll change the topic from the daytime beach look to evening chic. My idea was to bring the print back in with the pochette and add a neutral color (I love this very special purple-ish brown!) with the dress.

The good thing about this dress is that it’s very light – that’s why it is perfect for summer, warm evenings, BBQs outside or rooftop pool parties. You can also wear it without a belt, I just went for it because I love to accentuate my waist, but it definitely looks great without it too and the loose fit is even more comfortable. ;)

One of you can now win this swimsuit worth €135 in size L (EU size 46/48). Especially if you’ve got a larger cup size (I’d say it probably fits best with a D or E cup), you’ll love this swimsuit. ♥ All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me where you’d like to wear it – by Friday, June 24. The winner will be announced here and in the comment section and should write me an e-mail to receive the swimsuit. Please don’t forget to read the terms and conditions1 at the end of this blog post!

The winner is 202snoopy – congrats!
