Sexy And Cute Swimwear For Curvy Girls:

All over the world women are looking for swimwear that suits their body, enhancing their curves and dissimulating their less loved areas. Some women dread having to shop for clothes, especially having to go shopping for plus size swimwear ; they can never find anything suitable and end up frustrated and choosing a standard black swimsuit. The consequences are seen later when unflattering bulges show off or the material of the swimsuit becomes transparent when wet, showing off every single scar and stretch mark that was thought to be covered. I had it myself; coming out of the swimming pool with a new swimsuit that looked great when tried on in the shop but it became a transparent nightmare when wet!


Tips When Buying Plus Size Swimwear

But there is no need to panic; the truth is that if chosen correctly, the right swimwear can make anyone look spectacular. There is a wide choice of sexy plus size swimwear which includes slimming swimwear that accentuates, flatter and helps slim the figure for women who are concerned about unpleasant areas.

Tips when buying plus size swimwear

Some tips that help to optically minimize your waistline are:

- Colour striping. Choose swimwear that has colour strips that define the waist.

- Princess seaming, because it defines your shape.

- Wear lighter colours on your upper body and darker colours on the bottom to accentuate your waistline.

- Chose accents that draw the eye up, for example a nice little bow, a pattern or a deep neckline to draw attention away from ample hips or an undefined waist.

- Look for side shirring and waist inserts to slim down your silhouette.

- If you have an ample bust, go for wide shoulder straps to eliminate digging into your skin. Also look for cup sizes with built in elastic to accommodate your breast and support it comfortably.

- If you have an ample back then look for high cut arm holes to eliminate bulges popping out on the sides.

- To dissimulate wide hips and stretch marks on your thighs you can go for a swimdress.

- Remember that it is all about accentuating the positive and concealing the negative.

How To Look Awesomely Stunning In Your Plus Size Swimwear

  1. Keep it simple and stylish. The one piece bathing suit is a must have basic for any wardrobe. Carefully chosen swimwear can minimize, maximize, support, elongate and add curves. The secret is to know your body and to know what you want to show off and what you want to conceal. Once you understand your shape it is easier to choose what models and cuts work best to flatter your figure.
  2. Choose good quality materials. When you are buying your plus size swimwear, make sure that you go for good quality materials. The material used can make all the difference between a good support that slims your silhouette and a frumpy look. Let’s face it, unless you wear a size 8 you won’t look good in a crochet or a string bikini. A plus size woman needs good support and cannot get away with string models or very thin materials.

There are plenty of sexy swimwear styles to choose from if you are prepared to spend some time studying your shape and selecting the right material and cut for you.

Tankinis are a good choice for shy girls plus they have the benefit of really holding your body in place. When selecting a tankini go for well-structured, solid-support styles that don't hide your body. You want support NOT hiding. Control panels and built-in bras are also a must for good fitting plus size swimwear.

Swimwear Care Instructions


After each use, rinse your swimsuit in cool or lukewarm water to remove residue from salt water or chlorine. I do prefer to hand wash all my swimwear even if it is washing machine safe. To dry, hand wring gently and hang outside in shade, or lay flat on a towel. Never put your swimwear in the dryer, it will ruin the elastic in the fabric and you will get zero support from it. Also avoid drying your swimwear directly under strong sun or any source of heat.

I love politically correct marketing terms. Plus size is one of the best ever! When I saw the Lane Byrant pictures I was thinking to myself... that's not plus size.


iwhcpanties 7 years ago

Hey Princessa, I love the Halter Style Tankini swimsuit myself because the straps do not slide off my shoulders as other swimsuits will. I like to wear Hi-cut bottoms and it is a wonderful swimsuite for me as I do enjoy the beach. Yes I do get some looks, but that’s ok. I love the various patterns and colors I can get with these combos.


Robert 7 years ago

I totally agree..you should always look your best. It's never easy to look for that perfect suit that will complement your body, but its also priceless if you make heads turn with what you have on. My daughter always say that specially now that she's going Back-to-School and on the swim team. Keep it up guys and gals.

Great suits. It is amazing how the right (or wrong) suit can really change how we look. There are so many beautiful bodies out there and they come in varying shapes and sizes.

Women should definitely accentuate the assets they like best about their bods, because when a gal feels attractive the confidence emanates from her.

Nice hub. :)
