Tabria on loving the skin she’s in:
“my Broad shoulders, thick thighs and full hips are indicative of strength.”
Chastity on swimsuit shopping:
“look for comfort, class and nothing too conservative. If you’ve got it, flaunt it!”
Chanel on her perfect fit:
“a high-waisted two-piece gives coverage where I need it while still showing my waist!”
Go bold in graphic prints with design details such as contrasting trim and latticework.
