Comfortable and Appropriate Bikini for Curvy Girls
I don't have much clothing advice for Santa Barbara because I spent the majority of my time there in a bikini, no joke. We arrived to Santa Barbara, checked into our hotel and then headed straight to the beach for about two hours. That night we went out to dinner, but I just wore basic maxi and didn't take pictures in it. Our next day was spent at another beach paddleboarding again in the same bikini. What I would suggest is bringing one of those oversized college or travel shirt/sweatshirts because I wore that when the breeze picked up on the beach as well as while I was out on the paddleboard. I found this bikini online through Aerie by American Eagle. I love this scoop neck, straight across the back cut because it fits my body so well and covers the places that I want covered. I am much more open about bottoms, but tops can be where I struggle due to my back and this one is perfect if you have problems in that area.
Hopefully this can give you advice on which bikini to buy because I am obviously suggesting one for this trip!
Aerie doesn't currently have my bikini anymore but I am linking their general Scoop Bikini Top Section here.
