Tips For Buying Plus Size Swim Wear

Jan 22, 2008
Summer is almost upon us once again. Now would be a great time to start getting ready for your vacation, beach trips or swimming pool season. As far as swim wear goes, this year promises to have lots of options for those of us with a few extra curves. You want to enjoy this years swim season so making sure you pick the right suit will be important.

I've shopped for plus size swimwear in the normal ways like we all have. I've tried the local swim wear stores in the past only to find they still seem to only carry a small selection of plus size suits even though many of the swim wear manufacturers now realize the size of the marketplace for plus size swimwear and manufacture a very wide selection of plus size suits. Online swimwear stores now provide us with an almost unlimited selection to choose from that will make us look as sexy and cosmo as a brazillian g-string suit.

Consider a few things before you decide on which plus size swimming suit you want to purchase. Think about the size, fit and cut of the suit beforehand.

The size of the suit needs to be what fits you. It won't necessarily be the same as you might wear in normal everyday clothing. Many if not most plus size swimming suits are made for women with full figures will usually run a size or two larger than your everyday clothes. Bearing this in mind makes it very important to consider suit sizes. Although in many cases swimwear cannot be returned after purchase for sanitary reasons, if you follow the sizing guidelines provided by the better online swimwear stores, you will find one that fits you perfectly. If you visit an online swimwear store that doesn't provide very detailed sizing charts, move on to the next store. Also review the store's return policy closely. Some swimwear stores will allow returns for size exchange as long as the original tags are still on the suit and it can be returned in it's original packaging.

The cut of your swimwear must be considered if you want to find that perfect suit that you love. The style, amount of coverage and comfort of the suit should be top of your list of concerns. A lot of stores show plus size swimwear on models that are 'not so plus size' so consider how it will look and feel on you before making that purchase. Tankinis are a wonderful option for those of you that want a two piece suit. As far as one piece suits, the selection of styles is so large that you can't help but find the right suit that fits your style perfectly.

Fit is also very important. You want to find something that is loose enough to allow you to breath easily but also something that shows off your features. Historically plus size swimwear looked more like a big blob of lycra than a swimming suit but today you can easily find one that accentuates your curves and other assets in a way that you will look awesome and make you feel good about yourself. Go for it then! Find something that looks sexy on you and will turn a few heads.

Full figured women deserve to look as sexy as any other woman no matter what her shape and size. Show your inner confidence and wear something that suits your wants and needs and show yourself off.
