Take A Step Outside Your Comfort Zone And Try A Plus-Size Skirtini

It can difficult to find a balance when you’re shopping for swimwear. According to the retailers at the mall, women must either wear a revealing string bikini or cover it all up in a modest one-piece. The same stores don’t seem to understand the fine line curvier girls must walk with swimwear. While you want to look sexy, it doesn’t mean that you want to put everything on display. You also need support and coverage that works for your figure. Instead of combing through yet another department store, head online. The latest internet retailers understand that plus-size women crave sexy, comfortable swimwear. These resources are especially helpful if you’re shopping out of season or when all the racks are picked over.




If you’re new to the world of two-piece bathing suits, consider trying out the skirtini. This option is the perfect marriage of comfort and style. With this look, you get the flirty flair of a short skirt with the coverage of bathing suit shorts underneath. You can also mix and match with a variety of tops to suit your style. When you try a longer tank top, you can highlight your legs and accentuate your bustline by slimming down everything in between.

While the skirted bottom is nothing new, you can find way more options online than your grandmother’s traditional one-piece. This style has received a modern update, thanks to shorter hemlines and cooler patterns and colors. No longer do women with curves have to hide their figures. If you feel like showing some skin, feel free to test out a bandeau top, bra-style shirt with under-wire support or even a daring halter-top.

Other styles to consider are the high-waisted bikini, which can give any figure an hourglass shape and the monokini. You shouldn’t ignore the classic one-piece just because you associate it with the same dusty navy blue option they provide every plus-size girl. It’s also gotten an update with higher-cut legs (which will make yours look miles long), sexy side cutouts and modern patterns and colors. Big trends for summer include animal prints, fruit and food patterns and plaids and paisleys. By doing an exhaustive search online, you will be able to find whatever you are looking for. For another style altogether, check out womens swim dresses from swimsuitsforall. This savvy online retailer offers a variety of styles from designers like Beach Belle, Kenneth Cole Reaction and Jessica Simpson. A swimdress looks like a cute cover-up but can also go in the water for those days when you don’t want to change into a bathing suit but may want to dip your toes. Currently, SwimsuitsForAll is having a 30 per cent site-wide sale, so it’s a good opportunity to go shopping.

You may worried that your bathing suit won’t have the perfect fit because you can’t try anything on. However, the best retailers have clear measurement guidelines and a staff that is available via telephone or live chat to help you.When you shop online for bathing suits, you can avoid the unflattering dressing room mirrors and snotty salespeople. Instead you can have a relaxing evening in exploring your options. Take a look at plus-size skirtinis and see what colors, styles and looks appeal to you. This could be the year you rock a two-piece, swimdress or even a daring monokini and feel great doing it.

  1. I think that suit is cute. I think if a person is large, they should have even more coverage. I don’t want to see it. Too many plus sized people wear clothing that shows too much. For that matter, too many people in general do.

  2. I am also plus size and have been in the market for a swim suit but I am finding there are some pretty ugly ones in the stores where I live. I love the blue suit in the picture. It looks like something I would wear.

  3. I have always preferred a traditional one piece bathing suit–they look the best on me and I like to swin! Have you ever tried to really swim in anything other then a one piece? It does not work!

  4. I love the look of the skirtini! I have a one-piece that is navy blue and relatively plain, but I love it because it has some kid of body forming fabric which makes me feel more at ease in a bathing suit. I really do need a secondary and think I might look into this skirtini!

  5. I personally like the tankinis because they are designed with my curves in mind. I like it bc it covers the top of my legs too (regular swim suits dont). I need to get a new suit this summer.

  6. I actually think its pretty cute! It’s almost like a one piece but with a bit more skirt! I love the design of this one!

  7. I’m not plus size but I’m loving this suit! We just got a pool for our back flayed and this is something I would love to wear while floating around all summer!

  8. Popping by your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine. I love your blog homepage!!!

    I haven’t worn a bathing suit in years!!! I am working on losing weight and toning up! 🙂
