June Loop just launched their newest Summer 2016 collection TODAY at 9AM MST and it is amazing! I loved their last collection but I’m swooning over these new cuts, colors, and patterns in their new collection! This modest high waisted swimsuit is going to win you over!
June Loop is an online modest swimwear shop that is special because 1. all of their suits are beautifully modest, and 2. All of their suits are handmade by the owner and her sweet mother! They ship these suits back and forth between their homes in Utah and Idaho completing each phase of these swimsuits until they are finished. If that’s not love of fashion and love for each other, I don’t know what is!
I picked the navy floral Ultra High-Waisted Bottoms and the boat-necked thin striped Cindy Top. I love this combo! I love the cut, the colors, and I think it’s so flattering! I especially love the perfectly snug fit on the waist, bum, and chest, the height of the high-waisted-bottoms, the ample support without a bra shelf, the vintage-inspired boat neckline, and the full-coverage of the bum and back! (So hard to find!)
I’ve ranked these bottoms as my top recommendation for tall girls up to 6″ and I’ve ranked this top as my top recommendation for large busts! Way to go June Loop!
My Top Recommended Bottoms for Tall Girls
These high waisted swim bottoms have inches to spare in height for me literally reaching all the way up to my bra-line. The Cindy top extends below the bra-line. So the top and bottom overlap ensures no midriff exposure at all (so I can skip the tummy tanner altogether!) On me they overlap about 3″ each piece (I’m 5’3″) so I’d say you could be 6″ taller than me (about 5’9″ – 5’10”) and still have the top and bottom touch in the middle! Now from what I’ve heard from my tall friends, that’s no easy feat!
My Top Recommended Top for Large Busts
I’ve also ranked this Cindy top as my top-rated swim top for large busts! You wouldn’t believe the difficulty I have finding suits that actually provide the room that I need in the chest. I have a larger, low-set chest though a small ribcage so I usually need some sort of a mix between a S and a M. Most suits shelf-lines that cut-off before my bra-line which is oh-so-irritating and uncomfortable. Not this suit! This perfect top doesn’t have a shelf (allowing for a much larger range of sizes and shapes to fit.) The tight fit squeezes in all the right places and the nicely lined bra pads provide a perfect amount of support without a shelf! The high boat neck is perfect and shows absolutely no-cleavage even when bending over. The wide almost off-the-shoulder straps are nice and thick – the complete opposite of most suit’s skinny straps that can cut into your skin when they’re holding weight. Seriously, I’m in love!
If you’re short like me, you can wear the top tucked into the bottoms or untucked! I’ve worn it here both ways because I can’t decide which way I like it better! See below:
Luckily I don’t have to choose! I can wear it both ways in the same day if I want to! And I did!
I styled this suit with some thrifted wedges I scored at Uptown Cheapskate, silver aviators from Subsidy Shades, and a DIY pom pom floppy hat! (scroll to the bottom for the DIY pom pom beach hat tutorial!) My one-of-a-kind glass bangle bracelet was designed and made for me by my sister Tori! Isn’t it beautiful?!
I shot these pictures outside Hapa Shave Ice in Provo, UT! And yes, this blue raspberry snow cone was as delicious as it looks!
These beautiful photos were taken by the amazingly talented Utah photographer Roxana B Photography. This girl’s got a super consistent, stunning style and I’ve just loved getting to know her this summer as we’ve done a few shoots already.
Oh and I made this cute pom pom beach hat!
How to Make a DIY Pom Pom Beach Hat:
-any straw floppy hat (I found mine at Ross for $7.49)
-1 yard of your favorite color of pom poms (found at fabric/craft stores for under $3/yard) – measure first to be sure
-hot glue gun and 2 hot glue sticks
Instructions: (only takes about 5-10 minutes)
Remove any decor that came with the hat (mine had a little straw ribbon I removed.)
Decide where you want your pom poms. They are super cute around the head-part of the hat or around the circumference of the brim.
Glue your pom pom strip in your desired location a few inches at a time, being careful not to get glue on the poms (but if you do you can just trim them with scissors.) If you glue them around the brim of the hat (like I did,) glue the strip of pom poms on the underside of the brim.
And voila! Perfect beach hat for about $11!
