Alpine Butterfly Swim

For the past year or more I've been lusting after the curve friendly swimwear label Alpine Butterfly but I've been waiting until the perfect release to pull the trigger. Then like an absolute whirlwind the Selena collection was released and I feel in love with a little pink fringed two piece.

The Te Amo Selena Bikini is the tasseled retro swimsuit of my dreams. A soft pink two piece covered in tassels will make you want to shimmy and shake your way through summer.
With adjustable shoulder straps, you can create that perfect custom fit and look adorable without any effort. The perfect pale shade of pink inspired my accessories and a simple bow head band is all I need to complete this look. What's even more brilliant about this piece is the fact that you can take the top from the pool then out on the town as an adorable crop. This piece definitely needs to be worn on the dancefloor.

I'm wearing the Te Amo set in a size 2XL and I wanted to have enough room to accommodate my bust as the top is not cupped.  Size wise this two piece is perfect. I think if I had of sized down the fringe detailing might not look as perfect as it has limited stretch. The adjustable straps also help you get the right fit for your own bust and if you want to wear this piece out a strapless bra will hide underneath perfectly. I think I might be a 1XL in the non fringe items though as I'll mention with the next piece.
The high waisted bottoms are not only cute as hell but so freaking comfy! The faux belt and sparling sweetheart buckle make this piece shine and the fit over your hips and booty is so flattering. 

While I usually wear high waited items I'm not use to more cheeky bottoms but the shape of this bikini and the how perfectly the ruffle skims over my hips has completely sold me on this style! I can't wait to bring this to the beach over summer and blow peoples minds!
The Te Amo set is also available in black and I think it's rather obvious that I need it in my world!

So now that I'm fully in love with their bikini collection, I thought it was only fair to review a one-piece/swim dress style as not everyone is completely comfortable with a two piece.
The Lucia is a skirted one piece suit that I never knew I needed until I wiggled my way into it.
Featuring a molded deep plunge cup, full skirt, capped ruffle sleeves and bold gold accents at the waist. 
This piece has blown my mind! The support is amazing and super accommodating of my gigantic chest. It's the one thing I'm always worried about when ordering a non-specific cup size but this piece lifts and creates the most amazing shape.
I'm wearing the 2XL in this style and it's a little too big on me so I think the 1XL would be absolutely perfect. With some one pieces you can instantly feel with you need to size down and with this swim dress a size down would fit perfectly if more firm and extra poppin shape! 

 How cute is that little ruffle of a cap sleeve? I've never had this on a swimsuit, but I adore the extra little feature.

Now that I've tried these two pieces and have sorted what sizes I'll need I'll definitely be adding more Alpine Swim pieces to my collection.
