Plus Size Bathing Suits For All Figures

By Chirsty Diaz

The reason so many of us hate shopping for plus size bathing suits is because we often don't know what style is the best for our figure. It's easy to pick the same unflattering style year after year. But, why not take a risk, and explore some new styles in plus size bathing suits? Let's review the most common figure complaints and find the most flattering styles.

Wide Hips, Big Thighs

This is probably the most common figure problem, but it can easily be camouflaged with the right suit. Look for one or two piece plus size bathing suits with high cut bottoms that will give the appearance of longer legs. If you are not comfortable with this much exposure, try a flirty swim skirt or sarong to cover the area. Avoid, at all costs, boy cut shorts. They can make your hips and thighs appear even larger and wider.

Tummy Bulge

Who doesn't have this problem? One-piece styles with shirring can mask an ample tummy. Suits with deep, plunging necklines will draw the eye upwards and away from the bulge. Stay away from skimpy bikinis and low-rise bottoms.


Do you have too much of a good thing? Yes, cleavage can look great, but you don't want to be falling out of your suit. Look for swimwear with built-in underwire bras, or halter tops for extra support. Don't reach for that string bikini, unless you want your fellow beachgoers to get an eyeful of you.

Small Bust

Find a suit that has foam padding and underwire uplift. Bright prints and ruffles around the neckline can help hide a less than ample bust.

Short Torso

Bathing suits with deep v-necks can elongate the body. Boy cut or board shorts that sit low on the hips can add length, as well. Stay away from high cut bottoms that can make your body appear even shorter.

Long Torso

Try a one-piece suit with high cut legs. You can break up the long vertical lines with a tankini that exposes a bit of midriff.

Now that you have a better idea of what will work with your body type, go ahead and try on a few new styles. Experiment with color and pattern, as well. It is not written anywhere that full figured women have to wear boring bathing suits. You might just find a flattering new look that is just right for you.
