Swimsuit shopping is generally a headache for most women, and for those with curvier bodies needing larger sizes, it can be a downright nightmare – even when you're an international model.

“I don’t know why it’s so hard for a size 12 to buy a swimsuit or a bikini, but it really was traumatizing every time I’d go into a shop to try things on," said Robyn Lawley, a 24-year-old Australian model who this weeklaunched a swimwear line, Madison Plus Select, designed for larger women. "I’d leave being embarrassed by the whole process.”

The photos in the article show beautiful suits!  I'll have to check out the rest of her line.  How was your swimsuit shopping experience this year? Did you leave frustrated or did you find something you liked?

Those suits are cute!  Not sure I'd ever try a two piece, but I think they look fabulous on the models.  

My swimsuit shopping experience was... okay this year.  I couldn't find anything I really loved, but I did find something I could live with.  My friend actually gave me the best advice when I was shopping.  She told me not to look at the size and instead focus on what would flatter my body best.  It really helped!
