Thankfully, gone are the days when plus size ladies were relegated to just one or two drab, unflattering bathing suits in any given store. SuimsuitsDirect is proud to offer a tremendous array of plus size swimwear in all the latest styles and colors.
One of the most popular styles of swimwear for women of all shapes and sizes, tankinis offer the coverage and modesty of a one-piece suit, with the convenience and comfort of two separate pieces that cover the midsection. The versatility of the tankini means you can mix and match pieces as often as you like; it also means you can customize your suit to accentuate your very best features, while minimizing any problem areas you may prefer to avoid drawing attention to.
For example, many tankini tops offer halter tops with plunging necklines, and decorative details on the shoulder straps or chest. This style is perfect for drawing the eye away from your tummy and upward, toward your arms, shoulders, chest and face. Another tankini style, called the rufflekini, is perfect for top-heavy ladies who’d prefer to slim their midsections without drawing too much attention to their chests along the way. The options are endless!
If you have legs you love to show off, a simple bikini bottom pairs perfectly with any tankini top. If you have hips, upper thighs, or a backside that you’d rather not bring too much attention to—or, you just prefer a little more coverage below the belt for modesty’s sake—have you considered a swim skirt? Ranging in length from super-short and flirty to styles a few inches longer, swim skirts are an excellent alternative to the basic swim bottom.
Perfect for flaunting your curves or simply maximizing those rays of sun, the classic two-piece bikini is here to stay. Like the tankini, bikini tops and bottoms come in seemingly endless styles and shapes to flatter nearly every body shape.
A newer update on a classic look, flounce tops are designed with an extra fluttery piece of material across the bust. Flounces are ideal for ladies, regardless of their bra size! The extra material up top provides a bit of additional modesty and coverage, which is perfect for larger cup sizes. If you are disproportionately smaller up top, the extra material helps disguise your chest size somewhat. Either way, the flounce bikini is a win-win! Pair with a traditional bikini bottom, or try a cute and flirty swim skirt to really play up those ruffles.
One Piece Suits
The classic one-piece suit is anything but boring with today’s colors and style options. SwimSuitDirect’s plus size swimwear designers have taken the wants and needs of today’s women into consideration when creating their collections. Some tank styles are designed with thoughtful features that many plus size ladies can appreciate:
- Power mesh tummy control
- Reinforced side stays
- Flattering ruched midsections
- Details at the chest and shoulders
- Shirred, draped sides
- Removable cups
Looking for a plus size swimsuit that’s a little different in style, but still one solid piece? Try a swim dress! These look very similar to our tankinis with swim skirts, but function just the same as a solid tank one-piece suit. The only difference is an extra piece of skirt material to give your backside, upper thighs and hips a little extra coverage.
Whether you’re heading to the water or finishing up for the day, a cover up can be almost as essential as your swimsuit itself. Ranging from a simple kimono to a full pullover dress, you can choose a cover up that covers as much—or as little—as you like. With a change of footwear, some cover-ups can even help you make the transition to a casual beach bar or restaurant without having to drive home and change!
