There’s no reason to be bashful this season – especially if you won’t be sporting that "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini."

Anyone can wear a two-piece, but it takes a sexy woman to suit up in a one-piece. 

Confidence is the BEST accessory to wear to the beach this summer, and lucky for you, you already know that being a curvy girl absolutely rocks! So instead of retreating behind the comforts of a caftan, show the world just how beautiful you are in these 15 bootylicious bathing suits for the summer.
