Buying a Plus Size Bathing Suit

It used to be there were only a few sizes of women’s clothing or swimsuits, then there were variations of sizes – petite, juniors, misses, plus size – now women can wear a misses in one type of clothing and a plus size in another! Whether you are a curvy woman or you just fall between sizes, there are so many options out there when it comes to clothing and bathing suits. Sure, it’s not easy to go bathing suit shopping no matter what size you are – dressing rooms are unflattering to almost every woman out there, so don’t feel alone! Some dread shopping for a swimsuit as much as they do paying bills or something else equally as unpleasant, but if you plan to go out and enjoy the warm Australian sun and water this summer, you’ll need to find a suit!

Bathing suits are now made in a variety of cuts, colors, styles and sizes to accommodate women of all sizes – so you are sure to find something that flatters the curviest woman or the most petite person out there. Here are a few tips to finding the perfect bathing suit for your shape:

Support – Bathing suits for plus size women come with various features to offer support – such as built-in bras or smoothing material to prevent unwanted bumps or bulges when wearing. Depending on the type of support you need – search for a suit that offers it. Want to support the bust? A built-in bra offers plenty of coverage and improves the look of the suit. Want to cinch in the waist? Body smoothers offer extra support and help minimize desired areas of the body you want to slim.

Suit Style – Plus size women come in all shapes and sizes – and often even tall, athletic women must purchase plus sized clothing to get ideally fitting clothes for their long torso or legs. That being said, there are one and two piece options for plus size women – you just need to determine what you feel most comfortable wearing. A one piece minimizes the waist area and offers plenty of support.

In the past decade, plus size clothing has gotten much more trendy and stylish – so it’s possible to find flattering suits that look and feel great. Try on a few options and look for suits with accessories if you want to find something that looks great at the pool or beach!
