Shopping for plus-size swimwear used to be an ordeal of hunting for inevitably limited options. The focus was on “flattering” fits and “concealing flaws.” Luckily, it’s 2018 and retailers and designers have gotten with the program. Bathing babes in sizes above 12 have way more options now. Whether you want to show a lot of skin or a little (in a one-piece or two-piece) — there’s a suit for everyone.

Influencers and models like Jessica Milagros, Ashley Graham, and Gabi Gregg have partnered with brands like Swimsuits For All and JCPenney to create suits that are ridiculously ‘gram-worthy and fashion-forward. Gone are the days of black tankinis and frumpy swim dresses. (Unless that’s your thing, because they’re still out there, and they’ve been updated a little too.) So show off your individuality and your curves.

It’s almost summer, so now’s the time to grab a cute bathing suit. We’ve compiled 23 of our favorite plus-size swimsuits, so start planning that poolside photo shoot now.
