We get it—shopping for plus-size swimwear can be really tough. Trying on styles in a department-store fitting room can be disappointing and make summer feel like a bummer. Luckily, these 5 brands are making plus-size swimwear shopping fun by offering unique styles in eye-catching prints and celebrating curvier women through their collections. Take a peek and discover what you’ll be rocking all season long.
We love this brand for carrying sizes 4-40—and for regularly collaborating with influencers like Ashley Graham and GabiFresh for unique swim collections that celebrate curvier figures. Whether you’re looking for a tankini and swim skirt with a lot of coverage or a sexy string bikini in a Moroccan-style print, you’ll find it here. When they say that their swimsuits are for all, they really mean it.
Looking for a sexy, high-quality swimsuit? Look no further. Alpine Butterfly Swim carries sizes L-5X and features styles that show off your curves with cheeky Brazilian-style bottoms, eye-catching bikinis, and bold prints and colors. If you’re looking for the latest trends in swimwear, be it a ruffle here or a lace-up detail there, you’re sure to find it at Alpine Butterfly Swim.
If you’re looking for a comfortable swimsuit that’s functional enough for you to do some serious swimming in but cute enough to catch eyes while lounging poolside, you need to check out Summersalt. They carry sizes 2-22 and all of their swimsuits feature bold colors and unique color-blocking. If you’re looking for a modest swimsuit that offers the most coverage possible in a fun color, or even matching swimsuits you can rock alongside your little daughter, Summersalt has got you covered. On top of offering comfy, eye-catching suits in bold colors, they’ve perfected their fit by gathering 1.5 million measurements from 10,000 women—and the reviews prove that it was worth their while.
This swimsuit retailer is a family-owned, women-run business with countless options no matter who you are or what you’re searching for. Whether you’re hoping to find women’s and men’s options in the same place, or searching for a maternity swimsuit, or even for a swimsuit to wear while recovering from a mastectomy, South Beach has got you covered. Every brand they carry offers a different size range, but the majority of the plus brands only offer up to a size 24.
This UK-based lingerie brand carries exceptional swimwear styles in US sizes 4-18. While they don’t carry the full plus-size range (we’re hoping they extend sizes soon!), they do have collections made specifically for larger busts. If you’re looking for trendy and colorful prints, it’s worth taking a look at Figleaves.
