Before You Go

Rebel Alliance Toiletries Bag and Wonder Woman Spa Kit

Rebel Alliance Toiletries Bag and Wonder Woman Spa Kit

Pack your make-up, toothbrush, sunscreen and other toiletries in a Star Wars Rebel Alliance Toiletry Bag from SuperHeroStuff. At 9″ tall x 8″ wide x 3.5″ thick, it’s big enough for most of your bottles and bigger items. The faux leather (70% polyurethane 30% polyester) is sturdy, so you don’t have to worry about leaks.

Here’s a great idea! A Wonder Woman spa kit! I love the different logos on everything except the eye mask. Put that on and you’ll look like you’re wearing Diana’s tiara. The kit includes a bag stuffed with robe, slippers, satin eye mask and toe separators.

What to Wear

Plus Size Wonder Woman and Star Trek Swimsuits

Plus Size Wonder Woman and Star Trek Swimsuits

Plus size bathing suits have come a long way, baby. And now sellers have upped their game for the nerd demographic. There are a lot of choices in swimsuits for the plus size nerd, but I’ll make a couple of suggestions. This absolutely gorgeous plus size Wonder Woman swimsuit comes from Torrid. It has underwire cups and a Tummy concealing peplum overlay. However, the cup size best fits B-DD, so this plus size nerd can’t wear it. (I have gigantic boobs, have I mentioned that?)

Another great option is this Star Trek swimsuit from ThinkGeek. Because it’s a two-piece suit, you can mix and match sizes to get the best fit. They come in blue, yellow and (look out!) red.

Wonder Woman Flip Flops

Let the goddess Diana protect your feet from burning sand and concrete. These Wonder Woman flip flops from the Warner Bros. Shop are fantastic.

On the Go

Once you’re ready to hit the beach or lounge by the pool, you need the right gear to keep you comfortable.

Of course, you’ll need a towel, either for drying off or lounging. These Superman and Batman towels from SuperHeroStuff are bold and eye-catching.

You’ll also need to stay hydrated. Keep bottles cold with a Star Wars bottle cooler. You can go all Vader on your pop can with ThinkGeek’s Darth Vader Metal Can Cooler. Or take a nice, cold beverage in a reusable bottle, like this pretty Star Wars Pinache Insulated Pop Bottle. It says, “May the Force Be With You.” Or the drink, as it were.

No beach day is complete without some surf side fun. Have a blast (ha ha!) with this Star Wars kite from ThinkGeek. You can get a Death Star, R2-D2, X-Wing or Millennium Falcon.

Carry everything in a nerdy tote, like this one of the Westeros map from the HBO store. (I had to throw some Game of Thrones in there somewhere. Represent!) This canvas tote is 15″ x 14″.

Now that you’ve got your spring break packing list, you’re ready! I would love, love, love to see how you do you. Snap a selfie of you nerding out on spring break and post it with #plussizenerd. Stay safe!

      I know! I love how they look just like the uniforms and they’re not the “sexy” version. They’re cool!
