A couple weeks before we were going to go on our cruise I started stressing out about getting a swimsuit. Unfortunately I have gained some weight and the swimsuits in my drawer didn’t fit anymore. Also when you are going on vacation and know you will be swimming you are suppose to get a new swimsuit anyway right? As luck would have it I received an email from Fit 4 U with some photos of some new plus size swimwear.
I had already been to several stores trying on swimsuits with absolutely NO luck. I found that any suit that looked like it would flatter my figure would not support my chest. The look was anything but flattering. I visited Fit 4 U and checked out their site as well as the look book I was sent via email.
Fit 4 U
What I loved about the site is you can view swimsuits based on your needs. For example they have suits that are made to help with problem areas like thighs, tummy, hips, etc. They had a lot of adorable swimsuits and it was hard to choose just one. In fact, I may just go back and purchase another one. I girl has to have more than one suit!
The suit that I ultimately decided on was a Fit 4 U Thighs swimsuit in the most beautiful shade of blue.
I don’t normally purchase clothing online because what size you wear often depends on the designer. However I looked at the size chart and placed my selection and anxiously awaited my shipment. I needed it before my cruise and knew that if I didn’t like it I would only have a few days to shop for something different. The night it arrived I immediately tried it on. To say I was happy with it was an understatement. I keep telling my husband I absolutely LOVE this suit. Honestly it was the first suit I had tried on that supported my chest but also covered my problem areas which for me is my hips and thighs. The suit looked perfect! I knew that on our cruise I would feel comfortable wearing this out in front of people.

I’m considering one of these suits. I love the color of the light blue and the different look. The black one is just a top and I would have to order a bottom but I like the style. The third one is similar to the one I have but a pattern instead of a solid.
Which one do you like best?
I received a swimsuit to facilitate this post.
