Since it’s debut in 2013, the partnership between Gabi Gregg and Swimsuits For All has produced some of the most coveted plus size swimwear pieces. Recently, TLA covered the editorial campaign starring Gregg herself. New designs, re-releases of previous designs in new colorways, and a few accessory items comprise the partnership’s 5th collection. I’m excited to review a couple of my favorite suits from this round of designs. I purchased the Reflection Underwire (a new design) and the Champagne Swimsuit (a design from last season available in a new color) and am quite pleased with both.

This year’s theme is “New Year, Same You,” and I adore that tagline, especially during a season when people are actively being encouraged to dramatically change (or even loathe) their bodies. The idea that you’re perfectly and worth loving exactly as you are right now is one I can get behind, and I appreciate how Swimsuits for All is going against the metaphorical tide with a message I find refreshing.

While I sometimes like to imagine myself as a glamorous poolside […]
Lingerie (and, by association, swimwear) can feel so serious at times. There are “official” trends. An “official” color palette. Another “official” look. I got a bit wrapped up in that, and as a result, lost sight of the the stuff that first made me interested in all this. Things like discovering new brands, sharing them here, and actually talking with people what we like right now. Since I’ve loosened up […]
I’ve never been much of a swimwear person. I know how to swim, but I never spent enough time in the pool to justify buying a bathing suit very often. However, now that I’m in place where the weather is constantly, mind-numbingly gorgeous, I’m feeling the lack in my wardrobe. I’d love to go the beach or lay poolside…without worrying that I’m wearing the one swimsuit I do own to […]
