It may feel like a life time ago now that I’m back at work, but it was only a little over a week that I was on holidays with my family up in the Gold Coast. My hubby and I, my parents, my sister her hubby and three kiddies (7, 2 & 1) all headed up to Sea World Resort for (what I thought would be) 6 days of relaxation. Let’s just say – it was my hubby’s kinda holiday – you know the one where you don’t stop from first thing in the morning to last thing at night… Theme parks? We did them all! Now, we had a fantastic time, but I’m so glad I have more time off shortly as I’m still recovering…
So, what was the quintessential resort style for summer? The Playsuit! Oh my gosh, they were everywhere and they looked sensational. Easy, fun, practical (unless you have to pee) and chic – the perfect summer outfit.
However, as a plus size gal – finding one to fit has been an absolute nightmare! I’m so very jealous of all the cute patterned ones with pompom or lace fringing details. I’m on the hunt – if you see a plus size Playsuit meeting that description – please report back to me!
In the meantime, I did hunt down a couple that fit the bill – for inbetweenies at least. I’m still on the look out for extended sizing.
This Playsuit is my favorite – it’s crochet Chevron pattern is so damn cute and perfect to throw over my swimmers at the resort. It’s from ASOS – I bought both the size 16 and 18 as I was unsure of the fit. I ended up keeping the 18. It’s a little loose on the top, but the fit of the shorts was slightly longer so I was way more comfortable in that size. It’s available here.
Thongs: Swarovski Havianas from Surf Stitch
Lips: Australis Pout Paste
So it got me on the hunt for some plus size options, and here is the round up of plus size and extended size play suits perfect for resort life!
