Plus Size Swimwear – Favourite 5

IT MAY only have just turned February, but that means that S/S’18 buys are well and truly hitting the high street. If you don’t want to miss out on those plus size fashion must-haves, then it is time to seriously think about your summer wardrobe.

Plus size swimwear is starting to hit the rails thick and fast, as the early Spring drops take into account resort collection drops.

Plus size bikini shopping has never been easier. With the fatkini movement now seeming something of a bygone era, plus size pool party outfits are very much a here and now. Here are some of our favourite new swimwear pieces for curvy girls.

Plus size bikini – RI Plus, River Island

Tropical prints are all the rage for SS18 and this fresh white plus size bikini from RI Plus. The ruched side panelling on the high waisted bottoms are really flattering, while the halter top neck top will give you excellent bust support and shaping. This bikini will go perfectly with a pina colada obviously.

Plus size swimsuit, H&M Plus

This plus size swimsuit in nautical stripe is available in sizes 18-28.

It comes in 3 colour ways, stripe, block gun metal and black and uses sculpting support to help ensure you feel supported.

We really like the bust flattering cross over and slight ruche detail at the front. The nautical stripe gives this one piece excellent summer vibes and means you kind of need to find a luxury boat to go with it – that isn’t our rule, it is just what this swimsuit wants.

Plus size bikini, Caya Coco, Navabi

This paisley print bikini is super fun and unlike most plus size bikini styles is a lower waist knicker. Most curve friendly swimwear feature high waisted bottoms, but not everyone likes a high waist style, so we wanted to highlight this fun, bright set that bares the midriff.

Available in sizes 14 to 26, this is just one of many plus size brands that navabi retails.

Plus size floral bikini, Torrid

Ultimate beach babe alert… We love the selection of swimwear from American plus size clothing brand, Torrid. The massive US retailer carries a great range of sizes and styles and their current selection of plus size one pieces and bikinis is fantastic. This blooming marvellous set even has a matching kimono to ensure ultimate glamour whether you are beach or poolside. In sizes M/L – 6X. Love that this is a longer line bikini top for those not ready to bare all!
