A friend gave me the idea to spotlight plus size swimsuits this week. Many plus size women will not wear swimsuits to the pool or the beach, because they don’t think they can find “the one” that will fit them correctly. Actually, there are many great styles to choose from.
You should first know your body type and be honest about it. Then look for styles that will enhance the body parts you want enhanced. If you want the look of larger breast, then find a suit with a push-up bra. If you want the illusion of a larger backside, wear “boy shorts”, padded bottoms, horizontal stripes or long flared tops.
You may not want to show your upper arms. If this is the case, you can find swimsuits with sleeves or wear a cover-up.
Some of you may say this is a lot to think about, but if you’re the one looking for the right swimsuit, it’s not too much, to be able to look and feel good enough too lay out on the beach or at the pool, like everyone else.
The examples below came from several different online stores: dresslily.com, rosegal.com, Alwaysforme.com and Curvydivas.com.
