CREATE THE PERFECT SWIMWEAR WARDROBE

One swimsuit is never enough to cover all your beach and pool activities. Whether you swim laps, live by the beach, or are heading off on holidays, you need a swimwear wardrobe that works for your needs. Here we have covered the basics of what you might need to create the perfect collection of swimsuits and cover ups to enjoy your summer to the full. 

 

ONE PIECE SWIMWEAR

When it comes to plus size swimwear, the one piece is the most popular style of choice. And within that category you’ll find a variety of shapes and styles to choose from. Whether you need a sporty, supportive style for swimming, strapless plus size bathers for sunbaking or glamorous frills for looking fabulous by the pool, the options are endless.

PLUS SIZE TANKINI SWIMWEAR

Tankini swimwear sets are a practical choice for those looking for the ease of a two piece with more coverage than a bikini. They are also a great option for curvy women who need a different top and bottom size. They are the perfect bathing suits for large busts as they offer more support and correct fit with a range of cup sizes.

SUN PROTECTION SWIMWEAR

If you are looking for more coverage to protect your skin from the sun, consider a plus size rashie. Long and short sleeved rash vestsare great to keep in your beach bag for when you need relief from the sun. Or if you prefer a one piece swimsuit, look for long sleeved styles to keep you covered all day.

PLUS SIZE BIKINIS

There are so many great swimsuits for plus size women including cute bikinis and two piece sets. Whether you need underwire to support your specific cup fitting or a cute frill or crop top, you can find the perfect bikini to suit your shape and style. Match your top to your preferred pant style to create a classic high waisted bikini or opt for a cheekier cut for a fun, modern swimsuit.

PLUS SIZE BOARD SHORTS

Whether you’re active in the water or just prefer extra coverage, board shorts or plus size swim shorts are a practical and stylish option for the beach or pool. Wear them over a one piece, as bikini or tankini bottoms, or just keep them in your beach bag just in case. Board shorts are a great addition to your swim wardrobe.

CHLORINE RESISTANT SWIMWEAR

Spending long hours in chlorinated pools can be taxing on your swimwear. It’s easy to find swimsuits for plus size women in chlorine resistant fabrics in stylish and practical designs. You can choose from tankini, one piece and long sleeved options in both sporty and fashion styles.

PLUS SIZE SWIM DRESS SWIMWEAR

Not just for mature women, swim dresses are a cute option for those looking for extra coverage in a fun retro style. Choose from designs with built in pants or opt for a separate option to wear with your favourite bikini bottoms. Available in plain or chlorine resistant fabrics, swim dresses are a favourite full figure swimwear option.

BEACH COVER UPS

Complete your beach or pool look with a plus size kaftan or sarong. Choose from classic, soft cotton or our clever mesh option that can be worn in the water. Plus size dresses are also a great cover up option if you need to pack light for your next holiday.

 

Hopefully we've given you an idea of what you might like to consider to create the perfect swimwear wardrobe. Enjoy your summer!
