Clothing and styles suggestions for 25 y/o female traveling to Brazil!

Jump to last reply

I'll be going to Salvador and Rio for approximately a month in July. I'm female, 25, and slightly heavy (approximately US size 12, 38DD), and 5'10. My style is fashion forward and I wear clothes that are flattering to my hourglass figure---wide hips, broad shoulders and bust, although I'm lacking a butt :( I also wear a US women's size 11/12 shoe.

I love to shop, and my intention was to pack few clothes and make purchases for clothing and shoes while abroad. My concern is that my size (clothing and shoes) are just too big for what is the norm in Brazil--specifically what I could find in malls in Rio or Salvador. Any suggestions?

I also would like to go to the beach, but am hesitant about wearing a 2 piece swimsuit--even though I know I'll stick out like sore tourist thumb if I wear a one piece. I have lower belly pudge, but am relatively athletic and semi-lean as far as everything else goes. Will I be able to find any suits in Brazil that would be flattering or should I just bring a couple suits from home?

I appreciate any suggestions--especially relative to the areas I'll be in and the weather expected this time of year.
