That’s typically the feeling that most fatshionistas get when swimsuit season comes around. Well, for me at least. lol. I’ve got all sort of bits that I’d prefer not to hang out, and can get extremely self-conscious about my flabbiness/poochiness/jigglyness! (like flabby arms, anyone? am I alone on this? lol) Growing up in multiple beach towns, however, I’ve learned to deal with it. Having an awesome swimsuit and some handy cover ups always helps! 😀
HOWEVER, I’m seriously disappointed by the selection available to plus sizes. I mean, seriously! It’s ridiculous! How difficult is it to make trendy swimwear for plus sizes? I’ve always had a tough time finding plus size swimsuits that are cute and chic–I feel like the people who decided that plus size women belong in muumuu’s also designed our swimsuits, lol. Personally, I prefer all black one pieces which makes things easier (preferably halter top with plunging neckline :P), but that’s just me!
Anyway, these are some swimsuits I think are chic and trendy–let me know what you think! 🙂
I love this! It’s sort of like the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress but in black swimsuit form. I really like the criss-cross ruching and the asymmetrical top-seam of the skirt is a nice touch. too. I kind of want to buy this and pair it with a massive floppy wide-brim hat and some big sunnies! 😀 Goes up to 24W.
