Plus Size Fashion: Look and Feel Great on the Beach in Plus Size Swimwear

Monday 29th August 2005

Any woman will tell you that trying on a bathing suit isn?t exactly the most pleasant of experiences, but finding plus size swimwear can be an added challenge. Traditionally, the selection of plus size swimwear provided by mainstream retailers has been dismally sparse. However, with the increasing demand for plus size swimwear and clothing, the selection has increased substantially.

In addition to limited availability, some problems with plus size swimwear have included dowdy styles, limited colors and unflattering fits. In the past, whatever plus size swimwear was available tended to be functional rather than flattering. Usually, women with curvier figures had to make do with whatever was on the racks.

Fortunately, retailers are increasingly realizing that not every woman is a size six. There is a greater selection of plus size swimwear than ever before. Here are a few tips for looking great on the beach and choosing a plus size swimsuit to flatter a larger figure.

  • When choosing plus size swimwear, avoid loud prints and opt for monochromatic tones instead.
  • Choose plus size swimwear with plenty of support on top. Crisscross straps are always a good bet.
  • If you prefer a two piece suit, a tankini is a good choice. A tankini will offer more support and coverage than a traditional bikini.

Finding plus size swimwear needn?t be a drain on your time, energy and pocketbook. With shifting market trends, you can take advantage of the increased availability and affordability of plus size swimwear.
