Monif C. `Fat-kini`
I was recently in NY/NJ for my cousin`s wedding. I had flown in a few days early so I could help with the wedding preparations.
While I was in New York, I made a point to visit this plus size boutique Monif C. Monif Clarke is a plus size fashion designer and I`ve ordered from her online store before. She usually focuses on dresses and swimwear for plus size ladies.
I`ve been in need of a new swimsuit, so I thought I would see if I could find one I liked in person.
The boutique is actually in a commercial building, so the store itself is a small converted office. But they had a great selection of swimwear. One of the most popular styles is the mix and match `Sau Paulo` high-waisted bikini. Styles like this have been dubbed `fat-kinis` since they are much less skimpy bikinis designed for plus sized girls.
I have never owned a bikini before but I have been intrigued by this style and wanted to try it for myself.
I ended up choosing a blue coloured fringe version that helps cover some of the extra lumps and bumps while providing some visual interest to an otherwise plain suit ;)
I also love that the high waisted style keeps everything sucked in while still being super comfortable.
I`m super excited to wear this to the pool or beach this summer!
