Bikini Fashion - Plus Size Plus Size Thursday, June 23, 2016Mary Anne Velasco
As a full-figured woman, you’re never going to fit into single digit fashions. But just because you aren’t a 36-24-36 doesn’t mean you can’t look good this summer. Beauty standards are slowly evolving to include a variety of body shapes and sizes, and fashion is working hard to keep up. You no longer have to be a size 2 to rock a revealing bikini with confidence. Now more than ever before can you find fashionable and flattering bikinis for plus sized women.
It’s been an uphill battle. For years the only kinds of bathing suits available for larger women included full body one-pieces and unflattering tankinis, suggesting that full-figured bodies should be covered up. Drab, ill-fitting, and out-of-date, they were as far from stylish as you could get – so much so that you would rather stay fully clothed than be seen out in public wearing one. Luckily, with models like Whitney Thompson, Emme Aronson, and Crystal Renn showing off just how hot revealing bikinis can be on plus sized figures, the fashion industry is taking notice: beauty can come in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and forms.
Slowly but surely, fashion is changing to reflect that sentiment and it’s happening faster online than in stores. While major department stores still limit their plus sized sections to far off corners, online retailers have met the demand with entire websites devoted to plus sized styles. Page after page is filled with the hottest swimsuits and accessories, and they’re all specifically designed with curves in mind.
Plus sized bikinis – which used to be a fashion faux pas – are now one of the most popular styles available online. This recent shift in trends is all thanks to the fact that bikinis made for plus sized women are designed to provide coverage and support in areas of your body that you feel self-conscious about. Meanwhile they don’t shy away from showing off your greatest assets. Regardless of what body type you have, swimsuitsforall has the latest bikinis to choose from in sizes 8 to 24 – all with supportive cups, double stitching, and high waisted bottoms to flatter any body shape.
Once you find a cut and style that you love, you’ll never feel like you’re overdressed at the beach again. Better yet, decked out in a beautiful bikini made to handle your full-figure, you won’t ever worry about over-exposing yourself – whatever you’re doing. Whether that’s sun bathing on the dock or playing a competitive game of beach volleyball, you’ll have the support you need in the style you want.
