Hi there, lovelies!

I’m so excited to share more from my recent trip to Curaçao with y’all today! I was a little tight-lipped on Instagram and IG stories while I was there because my friend, Lauren, and I were either in full-on exploration mode or full on relaxation mode. On one of our exploration days, we drove to the other side of the island from where we were staying because we heard it was FULL of the most stunning beaches.

While in Curaçao, I had my sights set on beautiful views and getting some much needed sun time! We had multiple locals tell us that the one we absolutely had to stop at was called Kleine Knip. It was quite the drive, over an hour from our hotel and not a straight shot, but let me just tell you … it was SO worth it. We got out of the car and just kind of stood there in awe. So, views …. CHECK!

In order to ensure I got some sun, I opted for this cute – not to mention, affordable! – triangle bikini top and low-rise bottoms from VENUS Swimwear. If you’re not familiar with VENUS, I am really excited to introduce them to you. They’re based here in Jacksonville, my hometown, and have always been a leader in the swimwear community thanks to their wide variety of styles aiming to suit all body types.

The swimsuit I chose was the boldest of the bunch that I tried but there were so many others that I loved! I love the variety in their new Versatility line HERE, as well!

The one thing I’ve been really discouraged by over the past couple of years in regard to swimwear has been how much more expensive bathing suits are getting for smaller amounts of fabric. I don’t mind investing in a swimsuit that I absolutely love and know will be in my collection for years but, I find the bathing suits to be not much bigger than underwear and I’m paying four times as much. Rediscovering VENUS Swimwear has been such a treat because not only are there bathing suits that provide a respectable amount of coverage but they’re also much more affordable than many other brands out there!

+ My bikini top is currently $36 with all sizes available, plus four other color + print options to choose from. I’m wearing ‘Barefoot Safari’ but I’m obsessed with the ‘Safari Romp.’ I need that combo! The sizing is true to size.

+ My bikini bottoms are currently on sale for $29.99 with all sizes available. Sizing is a little big. I wish I could have gone one more size down.

+ My crochet detail coverup was the perfect throw on over this bikini, too! I love that it has the ruffle bottom. Y’all know I’m all about girly details. I’m wearing an XS/S so it’s a little big on me but, it’s the beach! No worries! This coverup is $36, which is a good price considering they offer it in neutral colors that you will have in your summer wardrobe for years! More coverup options can be found HERE.

And great news! As a sweet ‘hi, hello! nice to meet you!’ gesture, VENUS is kindly offering Alyson Haley readers 20% off their purchase with code HALEY20! It’s incredibly sweet so go enjoy a stress-free shopping experience!

Let me know what strikes your fancy and you end up ordering! I wanna see! 🙂

Also, please don’t worry! I always wear SPF 30 all over and bring a large brim hat to cover my face!  I hope you do, as well! The sun can really have a harmful effect on your skin. I shared a little bit about what it did to mine in this post from last year. Update coming soon!

Have a great day, loves! Thanks for stopping by! xo.

      I noticed that! I was like omg there are so many great options for bustier ladies, which I know is hard to find from what friends of mine have shared with me. That was one of the reasons I was excited to share their swimwear with you guys … it didn’t just appeal to smaller girls, which I have noticed a lot in a lot of swimwear lines. Hope you find one that makes you feel good, girlfriend! xo.

    Just ordered 2 suits and since I ordered from the links on your blog the discount code automatically showed up in the “apply code” box! On a personal note: my top is way smaller than my bottom so I love that I can mix and match sizes when it comes to buying a bikini! Cheers & Happy Summer xo

    I’m so happy you found this website! I love how you spoke on your stories how you struggle with being confident with your body sometimes. I think we get so caught up on comparing ourselves to others that we forget they may struggle, too.
