So why not do it in style?
And you needn’t be a model type to feel and look great, thanks to Curvas Peligrosas (Dangerous Curves), a fabulous beachwear shop with quality swimsuits from size 6 to 40, now in their fourth year here in Puerto Vallarta.
Women of substance, it’s our turn to shine. Owners Robina Oliver and Carlos Vazquez remind us size is just a number. Stocking 30+ brands from quality U.S. designers at prices ranging from 300 pesos to 950 pesos (average suit costing about 750) there are many choices for all sizes.
Starting out as a shop dedicated to sizes 12 and up, they listened to the numerous requests for ‘smaller’ sized suits over their first year, and Curvas Peligrosas added size 6 through 10 to their already large selection of gorgeous swimsuits.
Since there are lots of very handy and attractive three-piece sets among the 1,000 or so suits in the current inventory, you can go from breakfast to beach in a heartbeat. There are some stunning suits with matching cover-ups this season, from Longitude, Jantzen, and more quality brands. Check out the patented Carol Wior suits, all lined, front and back, with super-strong lycra to help keep everything in place. There are absolutely beautiful, flattering styles in every size, from 6 to 40.
In fact, some women who had sworn off bathing suits forever are finding, to their surprise and delight, they can look and feel really good on the beach! Robina has a knack for helping each customer find what is best for them, determining shape as well as size – pear, apple, etc. – and then going right to the racks to pick out several suits for the person to try on. Some may be so out of touch with their bodies, or certainly with buying a bathing suit, that they have no idea what would be the most flattering. But Robina brings a positive energy to the experience, making it exciting and fun, perhaps for the first time in a long time, to see yourself in the mirror!
Curvas Peligrosas also stocks a variety of coverups, casual wear and more to help you feel beautiful and in a carefree beach mood all day long. Find Curvas Peligrosas on Facebook to keep up with the latest on the newest styles they have in stock.
Located just off the malecon one block north of the Rio Cuale, and one block from the Juarez parking garage, at 178 Juarez in El Centro.
