19 Incredibly Stylish Plus-Size Swimsuits You’ll Actually Want to Wear
It may still be the dead of winter, but we can’t help but dream of sunnier days ahead. Whether you’re planning a vacation in a tropical locale or want to get a jumpstart on your warm-weather wardrobe, now is the perfect time to give your swimsuit drawer a refresh.
While shopping for swimwear can be tricky for anyone, finding a stylish and flattering plus-size swimsuit has its own set of challenges in an industry geared towards straight sizes. Thankfully, nowadays there are more size-inclusive swim brands than ever that celebrate plus-size bodies.
Unlike the basic black one-pieces or skirted options of the past, this season’s crop of plus-size suits are not only figure-flattering but fashion-forward too. Think trendy prints, cool embellishments, and chic details like sexy straps and romantic ruffles. The best part? All of these stylish suits are designed to show off your curves instead of hiding them.
