The Unholy Trinity

Earlier this year I feel in love with La Femme En Noir when I slipped into the stunning maxi wrap dress. The quality and fit made my heart melt, and I knew that a life long addiction had just begun.


When the previews for the La Femme swimwear collection were released, I was blown away with the styles, cuts and amazing designs as they offer more coverage yet focus on flattering your shape. For today's post I wanted to share 3 core pieces that can take you from the pool to bar with ease and really suit curvy plus sized girls.

For this set of images I had to ditch my beloved corset and show my natural shape. It's actually rather confronting as I've been corseting for so long but I'm loving the feel of wearing these pieces and loving the look. Be proud of your body be it natural or corseted. I rock both!

The Trinity Top gives me LIFE!! Micheline and Lynh the two amazing designers behind this label have perfected a range of gothic swimwear that flatters all body shapes, gives you lift and can be worn in or out of the water.

I'm wearing both pieces in a size 2XL and the fit is perfection but then again I expected nothing less from La Femme En Noir. Created to flatter, flatten and shape you in all the right ways the trinity top is perfect for super busty girls as the crop style holds the twins up with ease and the lace up front shows a little bit of skin. I absolutely adore the 3/4 length sleeve and I can't wait to wear more styles like this in the summer as I've always dreamt of a full arm coverage swimsuit.

The Lilith Capri pants are possibly the best fitting high waisted legging style pant I've ever had. The fabric is lined, and a special layer has been added around the front to help smooth out any tummy issues. The are firm at the leg which I love but stretchy enough to comfortably fit the hips and waist.

Now I shot this in the middle of winter and I was crazy enough to jump in the pool! The capri fabric and coverage actually helped me from freezing 100% so I can't wait to try these in the warmer months. I'll be wearing these both in and out of the pool as they are perfect for walking. If you are looking for a more traditional swimsuit bottom, you can pair the top with the Trinity Side Lace High Waisted Swim Bikini Bottom which create a super sexy shape. 

The great thing about these swim pieces is the fact that you can wear each piece outside of the pool! Once you dry off pair the stunning trinity top with my all time favourite piece - the Southern Gothic Skirt and a pair of heels and you are set for the night!

I'm wearing the amazing Southern Gothic skirt in a size 2XL and the fit of both the under shorts and the waist band are spot on with room to move. This skirt is a really unique and amazing piece. It features an amazing spider web motif over the skirt with a stretch ponte pair of shorts beneath. This ingenious creation means you get a perfect swing skirt fit with an extra layer to create a romper or just show off that amazing lace detailing.

The styling options for this skirt are endless as well and you can adapt the look for each and every season. Pairing this with light weight summer tops and a strappy pair of hells for the hot months, slipping a petticoat over the short for a full solid black look or a choosing a bright pop of colour to make that pattern really pop.

In winter this piece looks amazing when paired with knee high boots and you can also wear bright coloured stockings under the shorts for a little bit of fun. Each look was paired with my absolute favourite heels from Shoe Me and my Nightmare Nails which really fit with the plus size the Vampira vibes.

My glasses are actually a faux pair of prop sunglasses from a costume shop but La Femme En Noir have created the perfect Batwing styles in both black and oxblood.


The black are currently back in stock and the Oxblood version will be back on August the 24th. I think I'll order the black ASAP as I need them and that stunning coffin case. Be on the look out for a Vampira style due to arrive later this year as well. This shoot was absolutely amazing, and I have to thank the amazing Damien Bowerman for working with me on this supercold day, for not thinking I'm completely crazy for swimming in winter and for letting me sneak a fax skeleton into the set. The results are exactly what I wanted, and I'm going to love these forever!
