Show off your confidence when you change into plus-size swimwear that flatters your curves. Plus clothing encompasses swimsuit styles that are ideal for whatever you're doing, whether you're working on your tan at the beach or you're toning your muscles at the local swimming pool.
For casual summertime fun, pick out a suit with a bright pattern that will turn heads wherever you are. Buy a two-piece suit so you can mix and match your tops and bottoms. Tankinis will keep you covered; pair your tankini with boy shorts or a swim skirt for a modest look. If you have broad shoulders, buy a halter top since this shape draws attention to the center of your body.
Do you need a swimsuit that stands up against abuse? Buy one from an athletic brand, like Nike. This sturdy swimwear is designed for those who move a lot when they're in the water; you can expect fantastic support for your bust. If you'll be swimming in a pool a lot, shop for a suit that is meant to endure heavy exposure to chlorine.
Accessorize Your Swimwear
You might wear plus-size pants or plus-size dresses over your swimwear, but when the outer layers come off, you'll still need accessories to make your day at the beach or pool as smooth as possible. Buy a tote that will hold your towel, sun hat, snacks, and sunblock. Flipflops or pool shoes will protect your feet.
Don't forget a cover-up. A lightweight clothing item that you can toss over your suit after you swim will protect your skin from the sun and provide a touch of extra warmth when you need it. For more coverage, buy a terry cloth cover-up. If you would prefer something a little more elegant, buy a sheer skirt and/or top to go over your swimwear.
Shopping for Plus-Size Swimwear
High-quality swimwear can be outrageously expensive if you buy it brand-new; a sturdy one-piece may cost well over a hundred dollars. To save your wallet, shop smart and come to thredUP, where you'll find amazing swimwear from brands like Land's End and Fashion Bug at prices that are up to 90% off regular retail. If you often go to the pool to exercise, you'll probably need more than one swimsuit, which is yet another reason why you should shop for secondhand treasures.
