Plus Size swimwear

in the swim

An afternoon at the beach, early morning laps in the pool, an evening at the luau, a pareo wrap over your beautiful new plus size tankini. Find what fits you best and flatters your curves the most. One-piece? Two-piece? Halter, plus size bandeau, curvy skirtini? So many options, and so many places to wear them!

Swimwear for your exercise routine

Swimming is great for overall health, and water exercise is one of the best routine choices for those of us who have difficulty with joint soreness from impact exercise. Those of us with ample busts look for swimwear with built-in shelf bras for support and shaping, wide non-binding shoulder straps and comfortably cut arm holes that move smoothly instead of binding.

Selecting plus size swimwear

Look for chlorine-friendly fabrics with high UV resistance that will stand up to daily swim use. If you're not comfortable baring a lot of skin, then you may find a swim skirt or swim shorts to be your style. Buy a swim outfit in top and bottom pieces in order to get just the right size.

Think Fit

With a few clever choices, finding plus size swimwear that fits properly and compliments your curves is far easier than it sounds. Here are a few simple guidelines for selecting a plus size swimsuit based on your body type and personal style preferences. For best fit, follow all measurement guidelines for a specific brand whenever available. Ask a friend to help you take sizing measurements such as torso.

Fabric Care

Done with your laps? Wash your suit! Rolling up a swimsuit and stuffing it in a bag until your next outing is close to the worst possible thing you can do. Wash your suit in cool water with a mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly then gently squeeze out the excess water . Never twist or wring your suit. Lay your suit flat to dry or hang it indoors. Follow specific manufacturer instructions if available.
