Why is shopping for plus-size swimsuits so hard? I wish we could answer this question but the truth is, sizing can differ wildly between each brand you try. And most swimsuit brands don’t take into consideration all of the amazing types of bodies that wear swimsuits. But, what we can do at Dia & Co is source amazing suits from inclusive brands that get it. That’s why we were so excited to partner with brands like Kitty and Vibe Swimwear that are using revolutionary fits and measurements to serve every body.
Kitty and Vibe is changing the swim game when it comes to the way women shop for swimsuits. Thanks to their “kitty size”you can say goodbye to the dreaded saggy bottom or even worse—the swimsuit wedgie! We will never think about the booty the same ever again. Their “kitty size” measurement accounts for both hips and butt with two sizes that make finding the right swimsuit bottoms for yourplus-size bikinia breeze for every shape. For those amongst us with a fuller bottom, their “2” range provides ample coverage. The smaller bottom sisters can avoid sagging by choosing a size from their “1” range. And if you are in between or not sure where you fall on the booty spectrum, start by testing out the “1” range. No matter the size of your booty, Kitty and Vibes’ seamless swimsuit construction fits comfortably with no pinching or squeezing—the relief is monumental!
Because they are truly size inclusive, they carry cup sizes ranging from A to G with band sizes from 34 through 42. Mixing and matching is a cinch for plus-size and mid-size women that wear different sizes on the top and the bottom. Their styles from bikinis to one pieces have so much personality they had to give them all their own playlists. For each of their signature prints they create playlists to listen to while you try on your suit. Their commitment to making swimsuit shopping an enjoyable experience is everything. With great music setting the scene how can you not have fun finding a beach look that works for you.

Whether you’re getting to that dream vacation by bus, plane, train or car it’s time to get out and get there. Travel is buzzing this summer and we are here for all of the adventures far and near. If you are anything like me, the most fun part of travel is planning your outfits! We’ve rounded up some fabulous style inspo for the top 5 looks to pack no matter what you are doing or where you are going.
The Travel Look
Who says you have to wait until you reach your destination to start the festivities? The party starts as soon as you get on the road and a great travel look will definitely get you in the jetset state of mind. The best travel plus-size outfits are casual, chic and most importantly, comfortable. If your journey involves you sitting for hours, stiff fabrics are guaranteed to bunch or pinch. Instead, opt for lightweight fabrics that breathe and have tons of stretch. I love the Della Tie-Dye French Terry set for travel because the cotton fabric and stretch construction will keep you cool and comfortable throughout the entire journey, no matter how long it is.
There’s nothing like arriving at your final vacation destination and sometimes a quick wind down is necessary before you get into the festivities. You may not be ready to throw on your sightseeing or dinner clothes immediately after a long travel day (we get it). That’s when a quick and easy lounge outfit can bridge the gap. Casual plus-size dresses like the Marceline Sleeveless Tie-Dye Dress or the Gabriella Sleeveless Animal Print Hoodie Dress are just right for lounging around until it’s time to hit the town.
Plus-size Bermuda shorts are a sightseeing go-to. The length will keep you cool while also protecting your thighs from chafing, making for a carefree day of running around town. The Joan Frayed Hem Denim Shorts have a classic dark wash that is easy to pair with any top and trendy distressed accents. The Lori plus-size tee is a great compliment to the classic Bermuda short with its playful print and lightweight fabrication. Finish the look with sandals or sneakers made for walking and you are set for a day of adventure.
No vacation suitcase is complete without a swimsuit and fun cover up. Whether it’s a plus-size bikini or a one-piece swimsuit there’s so many options for looking cute while cooling down. Add a fun peekaboo moment to your vacation style with the Jacey One-Piece plus-size swimsuit. A flowy dress like the Becky Swing Dress is an easy cover up that will take you from beach or pool to boardwalk seamlessly.
Plus-size maxi dresses are a no-brainer for going to dinner or out to a show while on vacation. It’s a one-and-done kind of showstopper that makes packing and getting dressed super easy. You can dress these pieces up with heels and wedges, or keep it simple with flat sandals. The effortless style of these dresses do all of the work. All you have to do is show up and look great.
