California Dreaming Retro Bathing Suit (Outfit Of The Day)

The Oblong Box Shop “Pink & Black Retro Bathing Suit”

How ADORABLE is this swimsuit?!  Totally!  All I was missing was a full body surf board to transport back a few decades.  The powder pink ruched style with the black color blocking does amazing things to our body.  It is quite a flattering piece that is well made, roomy and comfy while still looking like a pin up model.
“The Oblong Box Shop” has gorgeous vintage inspired clothing.  Many of their designs are also made up to a size 3X (Check their size chart for more details.)  I saw this bathing suit flash on my screen during their Summer sale and I snagged it before the 3X was sold out.  Recently found the vintage feather hair piece and had to use it for this shoot.  
My Son and I rushed to the beach before school and work, and did short work of our shoot.  The beach was practically to ourselves and was the perfect background for this oh so pretty vintage suit.  I kept my makeup neutral and left out my eyelashes for a younger more natural look.  I used peach on my cheeks and a peach lipstick with a dark pink lip pencil outline for added detail.  When shooting in full sun light I find that much of my makeup can be buffered by the brightness and wanted to make sure my lips showed.  
Measurements:   47  –  42  –  53                                Height:    5’0
I’m wearing Size 3X but believe the 2X would have been a perfect fit as there was extra room in the bodice and I couldn’t quite fill out the hip area.  Due to the ruched detail and cut you can’t tell that it fit me a little loose so it worked out fine.  
Sadly this suit is no sold out in Plus Size but make sure you subscribe to their website and social media pages for any future designs.  They also have a few more Plus Size designs that will hold you over until swimsuit season comes back around.  As I’ve said before… if you like something GRAB IT as more than not, it may not be restocked!
