Summer is officially in full bloom and you know what that means — it’s time to pull out or (shop for) the best plus-size swimwear styles because what better else to do than chill in a pool all day during these scorching hot temps?!
And while we’re excited about all the fun to come, finding the best plus-size swimwear for women that are affordable and size-inclusive always comes to the front of mind for us. Especially since our version of a hot girl summer uniform consists of swim sets on rotation. So to help you pick the best selects, we made sure to browse through hundreds of plus-size friendly brands to find the perfect mix of options that can work for everyone’s needs and expectations.
Whether it’s a bold color-blocking swim skirt, a striking print swim top, or a simple nude cover-up, everyone needs a galore of plus-size swimsuit options. And there’s no need to worry about size ranges, comfortability, or support here. You’ll find swimsuits that offer it all — without sacrificing style. For some, a high waist bottom offering tummy control is important, while others prefer securing the girls with a full coverage underwire top. It’s all up to you. But one thing is for sure: with plus-size bathing suits, we shouldn’t have to lose style in the process.
