How to Find The Perfect Plus Size One Piece Swimwear for You

Shopping for a swimsuit can be frustrating and challenging. Personally, swimsuit shopping and shopping for denim jeans is my least favourite thing to do.  I will try on at least 20 pairs before I can find the ideal pair. It's quite the challenge.

At Curvy Swimwear, we have so many customers who come into store shopping for a plus size one piece swimsuit thinking that they are going to be lucky to find only one style, only to end up with a number of ideal options. They then have the tough decision of narrowing it down to just one or opting to buy two or three pairs for their next holiday.

Our customers are spoilt for choice with such a fabulous variety of styles to choose from. Our designs include figure flattering elements like tummy control, underwire support, and wide straps. Each one of our swimsuits is made from quality swimwear fabric, with each piece being fully lined with double stitching.

Below we have in order our most popular plus size bathing suit styles for your next summer holiday in Australia.

Black one piece swimsuit

Consider a black swimsuit like a reliable little black dress. While many of us have quite a few swimsuits in our wardrobe, we tend to gravitate back to a plain black bathing suit time and time again. From a sporty high neck to a sexy twist style, a black swimsuit always looks sophisticated.

Black is classic, not boring. While it is a safe fashion choice, black exudes timeless style and elegance, making it the ultimate colour for swimwear you want to wear season after season.

A favourite classic is our criss cross black one piece

Featuring a flattering V neck, this plain black swimsuit has three large criss crossed fabric layers that come from the top of the bust and cross over at the waist to accentuate your sexy curves. The straps on this swimsuit are adjustable and the bust features thin moulded cups with a shelf bra for great fuller figure bust support.

Features like these are available in a variety of styles from our black swimwear range. Whether you need bust support, tummy control or a sleeved style, we have just what you're looking for in our black one piece collection.

Long Sleeve One Piece Swimsuit

An emerging trend in plus size one piece swimwear in 2020 is long sleeve one pieces. For a great sun safe swimsuit these long length arms and high neck and high back will keep the UV rays from damaging your skin. 

These styles are perfect in the surf and for playing with your children on the beach as you don’t have to worry about straps falling down. Look and feel sexy in your surf suit with side panelling detail to shape your waist and mid section.

These make great active wear swimsuits for sporty women. If you are paddle boarding, kayaking or even snorkelling, a long sleeve one piece swimsuit is comfortable and practical for these outdoor activities. A long sleeve swimsuit offers the ability to move about freely without needing to worry about your swimsuit shifting our of place.

Whether you prefer a sweetheart or a simple straight across neckline, a plus size strapless one piece swimsuit is always stunning. This classic style shows off your shoulders and prevents tan lines. It is elegant and with a few clever design details, can actually be quite supportive.
