Holiday in the Sun, Part 2: Style for everybody and every beach

Before you even book your flight or start reading my destination-style guides coming up this week, here are a few must haves for every chic curvy chick planning a hot, haute getaway.

"Oceanus" faux-wrap Miraclesuit, $138
1. No matter if you are a size 8 or 18, nothing on earth beats a Miraclesuit! It's chic. It's slimming. It keeps all your curves under control. Get yours here now! The Oceanus is the sexiest and looks great on everyone!

2. Foxy Roxy already told you to hit Bag, Borrow or Steal  to get a fierce new pair of shades or even a designer tote, but it is so great we will tell you again. If you want to buy your sunglasses, check out the wide selection at Sunglass Hut

3. Get your "flippy-floppys" at Havaianas. They are insanely comfortable, pretty, colorful and virtually indestructible.

4. Make-up to the beach? Ok I know it sounds crazy but pair your sunscreen with Diorshow Waterproof mascara and Cover Girl WetSlicks in juicy shades like Watermelon Splash or Burt's Bees colored lip balms make you look sexy from beach to the bars. Best of all, you get high shine with out it being super sticky.
Bad acne? get Proactiv for face and body NOW and you will see clearer skin in days so you won't mind only sporting sunblock. Actually they have their own acne-fighting moisturizing sunscreen

5. A nice pair of silver or gold hoop earrings go with everything and if they have lever-backs they stay put even playing frisbee!

 ALSO Here is my tried and true swimsuit shopping guide for all shapes of plus-size gals. Know your shape: 
Are you:
- One of those few plus-sizers who are tall and have a stomach free of fat rolls? You can actually buy an underwire bikini or tankini! Just remember to shop by cup-size to ensure the best support. These body types tend to be more pear-shaped so try a underwire bikini top with a swimskirt.
Miraclesuit, "Ambassadress", $164 great for all-over flaw-concealing
- More hourglass? Thick all over? A classic slimming deep-V neck one-piece always looks amazing like the Miraclesuit Oceanus above or the "Sonatina" with rusching to conceal tummy flaws and highlight your sexy cleavage. If you are also concerned with covering thick thighs or hips, go for a swimdress that draws eyes up like the Miraclesuit "Ambassadress" that lifts the chest and skims the curves:
Monif C, ruffled suit great for smaller busts, $130
- an apple shape with boobs smaller than your tummy? Then you need tummy control with ruffle detailing or perfect-fitting cups in the bust that help even out the proportion and still offer support. No matter what you never want to leave the "girls" unsupported or smooshed. Try one of these:
Miraclesuit "Flamenco" $146
Spiegel, "colorblock" $69
