The best plus size swimwear styles to wear this summer

Girls with curves know that the best way to feel good on the beach is to have the right support. So to give your body a boost, you need to buy the right plus size swimwear for your shape.

Curvy Swimwear offers a collection of must-have bathers for fuller-figured ladies, with style and support in spades. Sneaky cuts and inspired detailing will delight anyone dedicated to some serious sun worshipping during the holiday season.

The Curvy Swimwear team has compiled our list of faves for flaunting it in style this summer:

  1. 3-Tier Tankini Top: The triple-frill top takes the tankini up a notch, with fun, feminine styling to suit all shapes and sizes. Bolstered with Powermesh support to smooth the tummy, this fashionable tankini shape comes in a range of appealing prints, including Full Bloom, Island Story and new season Tahiti. If you prefer the elegance of a block colour, go for Basic Black or the latest Rust shade, a gorgeous hue that flatters every complexion.
  2. Frill Sleeve Zip Front One Piece:This versatile look is this season’s crowd-pleaser, with its sun-protection coverage for the décolletage and shoulders, along with its form-fitting shape for the sporty at heart. You can choose how much skin you want to show, with the zip front going up to the collarbone. Love yourself in Leopard, go dotty for the sophisticated Polkadots Navy & White plus size swimwear or the vibrant Vintage Paisley Other popular patterns are the Raj and the whimsical Bohemian Sunset, while the Tahiti, Blue Hawaii and Island Story prints pack plenty of tropical holiday punch.
  3. Black Twist Bandeau One Piece: If you’re looking for sophistication in your swimsuit, you can’t go past the allure of film-star glamour. Flexible and fitted, these swimmers are ideal for an hourglass, while the stunning cross-over twist at the bust and ruched front panel accentuate your curves in the most flattering way. To allow for more movement in the water, the one-piece features extra bust support, Powermesh tummy control and a traditional one-piece bottom. Knock ’em for six in this eye-catching plus size swimwear and enjoy all the attention in or out of the water.
  4. Honeycomb Plumb Ruched One Piece:This gorgeous take on a retro-style bather with a modern twist won’t let you down, in cup sizes DD to F/G. The bold beauty of the classic plumb-coloured swimsuit will see you enjoy hours of waterside fun this summer, thanks to its ruched stomach panel, adjustable straps, mastectomy pouch and durable Nylon/Spandex fabric. The vertical ruching structure around the bust allows for more movement to keep you comfortable whether you’re swimming, paddling or lounging. This delightful design also comes in Navy for a touch of timeless elegance.
  5. Long Sleeve Rash Vest: Keeping your curves covered in the hot summer sun has never been easier with the sun-safe rash shirt, in several colourways to appeal to all tastes and ages. Whether you’re a serious swimmer looking for Chlorine Resistant Black, or you love a playful print, such as Bohemian Sunset or Blue Hawaii, we have a rashie for you. Go for extra cover with the Raj Full Length Rash Vest or the Beaded Full Length Wet Shirt offering the most modest styling for summer. New season looks, Diamond Geo and Wild Berries offer vibrant colourways to excite your interest when you’re looking at ramping up the SPF.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
