I first reported on Sorella Swim before #sonsifffweek. It was hard to put my finger on this designer of plus size swimwear so I went into the inde showcase with no preconceivewd notions of what to expect. Lets say I was totally blown away by what I saw on the runway. In my original post I talked about the classic aspects of the swimsuits. To that I want to add sexy vintage wear.
Each piece reminded me of watching beach movies when I was growing up and seeing the women basically pose for the camera and in the end they may or may not get into the water but for sure they showed of how sexy they were. What I liked the most about the combination of swimsuits and coverups coming down the runway is they took the plus size silhouette into account for the designs whether it was a one or two piece combination. The colors were great and the addition of the hats brought the collection together.

The good news about this collection is because it is size all of the items are available for sale on the Sorella Swim website and many swimwear sites around the web. Additionally, there are several boutiques around the country the suits are available. If you are in need of a swimsuit or coverup that was made with you in mind be sure to check out Sorella Swim.
