Welcome to my plus size swimwear guide! You are here because you’re either looking for a cute swimsuit or looking for tips on how to buy plus size swimwear online. You’ll find both answers in this post. No matter your size we all deserve to be beautiful at the beach and pool. Gosh ! The last time I wore a 2 piece swimsuit was probably in 2004 before having kids.This year, I am just tempted to start wearing them again. I am a lot more confident and inspired by all the ladies that share with us their beautiful beach bodies every day.

Where to cute buy cute plus size swimwear online?

The options are just endless this year. Companies are slowly understanding that our money is as green as everyone else. Plus size swimsuits are available at Walmart, Evans, Forever 21, Rue 107, Addition Elle, Monif C, Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant, Macy’sJosephine SwimEbay, Amazon, Swimsuits For All to name a few.The ideal way to shop for swimsuits is in the store.You can to try them, feel them or leave them behind if you do not like them. I understand that not everyone loves to shop on the internet, the truth is that everything is slowly moving online.The online stores have more options and sometimes better prices.


A few tips for you in case you decide to shop your plus size swimwear online


  • Take your measurements including your cup size. Every company has their own sizing chart, make sure you open and read it.The problem that most people have is that their breasts never seems to fit in their swimsuits. Swimsuits For All gives the option to choose different sizes on the top and bottom. 
  • Go with something familiar, maybe something you’ve tried before or maybe you own it in a different print or color.
  • Read the company policies to find out if they accept returns before you click pay now.
  • Read reviews to know what people think about the suit.

    I like them all but I will not wear a two piece although I love to see them on other ladies. The animal print at Ashley Stewart looks great but my fave is the Orange swimsuit from Monif C. See my post at:
