It’s nearly Spring Break — that beautiful time where you get to take a chunk of time for yourself and travel to a warmer locale so that you can have a chance to get over the winter blues and start looking forward to nicer weather closer to home. Whether you’re going to Bermuda, the Bahamas, Key Largo or Montego, you will of course want to come up with a checklist of all of the things that you have to do and need to get before travelling — and this assumes that you’ve already settled on where to go and your travel plans in general.
So here’s what you’ll need to have ready before leaving:
- Tickets and a government-issued ID if you’ll be flying or taking a train. If you’re going abroad, make sure to have your passport and a valid Visa if required — the latter will take some time to be issued, so be sure and apply well beforehand.
- Comfortable shoes — be sensible about it, as you’ll likely be doing a lot of walking.
- A swimsuit. Or several swimsuits. The idea of a Spring Break getaway usually involves sand and beaches, so you should have plenty of opportunities to wear them.
- Cover ups — sarongs are great, or pretty much any wraparound that you can find will do the trick as you go from beach to bar. Anything that you can throw on over a swimsuit and comfortably walk around in will be a perfect fit, after all, if you’re going somewhere with a beach, chances are that you won’t be on the beach the entire time you’re there.
You might be thinking, how am I going to find several swimsuits to bring along — especially since it’s the middle of the winter, and especially if I’m a size 8 or above. You shouldn’t let this get you down, as there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be able to find something sexy just because you’re curvy. Beyond society telling you that your body is unattractive and that you won’t find anything flattering, there’s actually no reason for you to fret over this, as many retailers (especially those online) are catering more than ever to the plus size demographic.
The internet has made it a lot easier to find swimwear that flatters those of us who don’t really have bodies that look like most of the women on Vogue covers. And you can get it delivered to your door, which saves the time and hassle of going to a mall and trying to find something suitable during the off season. Just because you need a swimsuit in March doesn’t really mean that you can get one all that easily, let alone one that you look great in. The latest swimwear collections from swimsuitsforall, for example offer a great selection of swimwear that flatters women with curves, up to size 34.
You have access to a lot of variety compared to brick and mortar stores, especially in the Spring Break off-season and there are a bunch of great deals to capitalize on. Right now, you get 40% off if you refer a friend — which makes it even easier to stock up on several great looks for your upcoming holiday. And with other great offers on the site, this could be one of the best options out there as you prepare for that dream vacation this winter.
