8 best plus-size swimsuits, according to a curvy woman
Finding perfect plus-size swimsuits can often feel like trying to locate a very specific needle in a very, very large haystack. Don’t believe me? Well, think of it this way. First, imagine you aren’t able to try on any swimsuits before you buy them. Options for plus-size swimsuits are few and far between at brick-and-mortar stores, and the larger your size, the more true this is. Next, imagine you are trying to find something that’s supportive enough for your larger body, but also, you know, actually cute. No swim skirts. No tankinis with sunsets on the front. No suits that look like something you’d wear in elementary school gym class. Just the same cute, stylish suits that every straight-size person is wearing—but in a larger size. It’s no easy feat.
Luckily, though, there are more options than ever for plus-size swimsuits. Though it’s still a pain in the butt to have to shop online rather than try them on in person, finding cute plus-size swimsuits is a win no matter what. Here are eight of the best options available to shop right now.
