Best Plus Size Swimwear

As women continue to fight back against the ridiculous standards that society sets for beauty, more and more swimwear brands are designing swimsuits that look amazing on many different shapes and sizes beyond the typical "size 2". No matter what your body type, these suits are flattering to just about any shape.

All the pretty colors

Besides the fact that this sarong suit is feminine and flattering, we love it because it is available in 12 different colors and prints. Even better, it goes up to size 26!

CUPSHE High-Waist Floral Bikini

Just your size

Another high-waisted bikini, this one offers an adjustable top that allows you to decide exactly how much (or how little) cleavage you'd like to reveal. The high-waisted bottoms are the perfect finishing touch.

FeelinGirl Pin-up Tankini

A blast from the past

Love a retro look? Here's a two-piece that follows the style of traditional 1940s pin-up girls. The underwire top provides good bust support, and it also creates a very sexy silhouette.

Magicsuit Sophie Tankini Top

A fun cover up

Tankinis make excellent plus size swimsuits because they offer the comfort and flow of a bikini while covering trouble spots at the same time. This flowy tankini top is pretty and flattering to any figure.

Lands' End Slender Wrap

Slimming without the corset

Another great shapewear swimsuit, the Slender Wrap from Land's End is made with exclusive Slendertex fabric that cinches in the waist and flattens the tummy. The beautiful gradient print tops it all off in style.

CUPSHE Green Halter One Piece

Enhance all your best features

If you'd like firm bust support that also shows off your shapely curves to best advantage, the CUPSHE Halter One-Piece is the perfect choice. With attractive, slimming shirring in the waist and built-in bra cups, this is a lovely, quality bathing suit. 

Sizing It Up

No matter your body type, there's a bathing suit for you on this list. My fave is the Swimsuits for All Sarong because of its feminine lines and aaaall the lovely color choices. It also makes for a beautiful, smooth silhouette once it's on. 

If you prefer a bikini, try the CUPSHE Floral Bikini with its adjustable top and slimming high waist. The Miraclesuit Madero One-Piece is also a great choice for those who love the smoothing support of quality shapewear. Find the perfect match for your body type and style sensibilities and get your swim on!
