5 places to buy beautiful plus-size swimwear this summer


A question we get asked a lot on social media and via email, is:

“Where can I buy beautiful, flattering plus-size swimwear?”

10 years ago, the answer would’ve probably been “nowhere”. Back then it seemed like the only swimsuits available to plus-size women were dowdy black one-pieces.

Now though, there are so many amazing retailers selling swimwear for larger ladies and curvy ladies, that you literally have your pick of thousands of designs. So stop being worried about going on holiday, and start being excited for it, because something out there will make you feel fabulous.

Here are our favourite swimwear retails for this summer, and some of our favourite designs…

Torrid – Probably not the first name that springs to mind when you’re talking about swimwear, but these guys have released some beautiful pieces for 2016. Personally, we’re loving the long-line bikinis (3rd from the left) but the one-pieces are just as beautiful and totally flattering. They’re also pretty affordable too.


Simply Be - Simply Be is quickly becoming a great destination for anything plus-sized, and swimwear isn’t an exception. Because they showcase and sell so many different brands, you can browse and see a load of styles on Simply Be. These are 4 of our personal favourites, but there were about 100 others to pick from! FotorCreatedvsdvsForever 21 – You know where Forever 21 is concerned that the prices will be cheap – so if you’re a girl on a budget, these designs are for you. We LOVE the green colour they’ve featured on a few designs, as it’s flattering and takes us away from our safety net (which is black of course). But the collection on a whole is super varied, and has just as many safe and flattering styles, as it does have bold and bright styles.

ASOS Curve – Another favourite for plus-size shopping, there are definitely a few stand out pieces in the collection from ASOS. We love the bright colours and unique patterns.

There’s so much choice it’ll be difficult to choose! These guys get the balance just right between the flattering style and the brave and bold styles, and we know for a fact, that these pieces are always high quality. Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 15.32.35 Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 15.33.02 Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 15.33.15
