Plus Size Swimwear Tips for Plus Size Women

As mentioned earlier, a well designed plus size swimwear would detail your body curves to make you look more attractive and give you comfort while spending your day at the beach or on a cruise. Make sure that the cuts are not too revealing especially under your arms or high leg cut because the extra fat will bulge out from here and there, and it will make you look unflattering. Some good styled swimsuits such as empire waist, large straps, under wire are highly recommended if you have a large bust; avoid unfitted swimwear which will give you discomfort when you are in or out of the water.

There are many different colours or patterns (prints) for swim wear but you should choose the colours and prints that suit your real size shape. Choosing colours for plus size swimwear also depend on your skin colour; if you have a pale complexion and you choose black swimsuit, it definitely would not look good on you. There are some colours that all skin types (pale, dark, fair skin… ) can wear i.e. dark purple; red; emerald green; turquoise; blush (light pink, nude). Since you are a plus size woman, you should not choose blush colours as they will not give a trimming image but you can choose one of the other colours above. If you are short, swimwear in solid colours will make you look taller and slender.

With plus size swimwear prints, stay away from bold prints on areas you don’t want to emphasize, instead, wear large prints on the best area which you want to drive the eye to. For instance, if your bust is smaller than your hips (pear shape), large bright patterns on the bust line combined with plain or darker colours on the lower part of the swimsuit will emphasize your bust and give your hips a trim illusion. Busy all over prints in bright or dark coloured swimwear can flatter your appearance and they will distract the eye from stopping on your least favourite area.

Plus size swimwear has become popular in the fashion industry with a variety of styles as a lot of designers realistically recognise the market. But again, many of those designers are experts in making tiny swimwear for stick thin models, it does not mean they would do a good job in making swimsuits for plus size women. You should go for brands which are made by designers who specialise in plus size because they have experience in that particular field.
