Aussie Curves – Swimwear

January 16, 2015


Wowza! It’s only halfway through January and already i’m really pushing through some of my personal body issues. I’ve been on like body love/acceptance journey for years, but I still have some insecurities. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t, but you know what, I’m okay with that.

This is my first Aussie Curves post for the year, i’ve been really slack with it lately, and I really should have jumped back in last week. I mean, I have over 100 pairs of shoes, I’m sure I could have chosen one pair to showcase! Anyway, this weeks theme is Swimwear, so here you go, my first Β adult bikini!


Can you believe that this is from Kmart!? Yep! When I heard that they had stocked a plus size bikini set, I ran along to try it out! I have LOVED the ‘fatkini’ trend, and I’m currently going GAGA over Gabi Fresh’s current Swimsuits For All, but I don’t go to the beach/pools enough and I wasn’t sure how confident i’d feel in a bikini. I could never quite commit to spending that much on something I was a bit unsure of, so when I tried these on, I decided to get them. The set cost me $27!


I would have loved if theseΒ had a higher waist. I’m honestly not used to showing off my belly so much, but I also figured with this set, I could always invest in just a high waist bottom to match the bikini top! Β Oh! The straps are also removable!


So here I am in all my swimwear glory! Lumps, bumps, belly, stretch marks & clothing lines from the pants I had been wearing! All me!


Bikini Top (Size 18c) $12 | Bikini Bottom (Size 20) $15 | IN STORE at Kmart!


  • Very nice! You found one that isn’t super high waisted!! Not that I don;t have the feels for them as well, but lower rise are near impossible to find! It looks like it fits like a dream!

    I have my eye on a black one piece from F21, that have a little cut out below the sternum with some gold pieces.

    You are very very cute, Natatree. <3 And I LOVE that you featured a regular-waisted bikini. πŸ™‚


  • Over 100 pairs of shoes?!? Wow! That is alot! Dont you feel bad for thise pairs that rarely get worn? Lol I do!
    You look great chick! Confidence is a great outfit! And hopefully its contagious!

  • You look awesome go rock that bikini xxx

  • Yaaaaaaaaay, you look so cute! I totally need to get on the bikini/fatkini thing.

  • amandagorton

    you look fantastic! great choice

  • I love this on you! The colours are so you. You look fab!!

  • Love the fact it isn’t super high waisted, and you’re right, you can easily find high waisted bottoms to wear with this if you’re inclined πŸ˜€ x

  • SpijkerKat

    you look gorgeous! love these colours on you, and even though i didnt blog one this week, i’m a huge fan of the lower rise bikini!

  • Steph J

    I have this set too!! Although mine fits slightly higher waisted thank goodness. As I’m not quite ready to show off my belly button yet πŸ™‚ Kmart is the best! And you’re right its super easy to mix and match the top with other bottoms. I have some pink ones from Sorella swim that I wear with the Kmart top as the Sorella top I got is too small. And I have some cheap plain black ones from asos which will also work. You look awesome and I love that your hair matches the kini! So cute.

    You look beautiful! I might be going on holiday this year and though I don’t think I’ll be anywhere NEAR confident enough to wear a bikini (I’ve never worn one in my life) I might try a fitted swimsuit instead of the surf shorts-and-top combo I normally go for which is a step in the right direction for me :p xx

  • flashionaffair

    Ah I have not seen these in kmart yet! I need that top if it comes in my size! You look great hun! love the colours!

  • Very cute! Nice writing, too. Very relatable x

  • Becky Brown

    looking hot hot hot

  • Aw, thank you! xo

  • Thanks!

  • Oh! They’ve been out here awhile, maybe check out a few while your here? They are awesome!

  • You should fully try just a normal costume. It is all just baby steps. I’m not sure how I’d go rocking this at the beach or the pools yet, but I now just wear a swimming costume without board shorts or that! Baby steps!

  • I think if I had sized up with the bottoms they would have been a bit higher waisted, but I also do have a rather large ‘apron of fat’ for it to sit over, which makes it not as high waisted. I also didn’t want to go too big that they’d fal off if I was doing some strong swimming. Yes, I thought with all the colours on the top, I could easily mix and match bottoms, I already have like a black swim skirt that would go well with it. And thank you! xo

  • I love the high waisted ones, I just haven’t found one in my budget! I think i’d feel a look more confident in them.

  • Yes! I do love a matching bikini, but with the colours in the top I figured there are many options I could choose with bottoms! I already have a black swim skirt I could use with it!

  • Thank you sweety!

  • Thank you!

  • Awww, thank you! And yes, you do!!

  • Hee, thanks sweety!

  • Yeeeah, I have a lot, I really need to cull! I have a few that are kind of ‘investment’ shoes, I dunno, in some ways I see shoes as works of art! πŸ˜›

  • Aw thank you!

  • I was thinking that when I tried it on! I do love the high waisted ones, but it was so nice to see just a normal bikini in plus sizes, and in kmart of allll places! It was such a refreshing scene!

  • Theres nothing wrong with that! Unless of course you dont have room for them all! They totally are works if art!

  • Steph J

    I found the bottoms quite small fitting also. So I get what you’re saying. I brought the size 20. Which at first I was a bit weird about. But they are my favourite togs I don’t care what the size is! Good on you for taking baby steps to fatkini confidence! The first time I wore one was at a quiet bay in the late evening. Then worked up to day time wear!

  • You CUTIE! I’m loving these photos, and i’m so super envious you found one of the Kmart ones in your size! They are SUPER ADORABLE!! <3

  • Nessbow

    You look awesome! And how great is Kmart’s plus-size range? Mum bought her first two-piece in twenty years there before her holiday last month and loved it.
