How to choose plus size swimwear?
When it comes time to choose some curvy swimwear that looks great at the beach and by the pool as well as performs as a proper swimsuit for enjoying the water, there are a few tricks to follow to get the best flattering design for every shape. Every woman is different but there a couple of assets that are generally the same and those assets should be supported, look great and be safe from the Australian sun all at the same time. The best way to achieve that is with the ever-comfortable tankini.
Tankinis are the versatile piece of plus size swimwear which suits every body shape by offering total coverage and convenience in two pieces which can be mixed and matched to suit your own personal style. Our range of tankinis include the classic beachside designs like floral, polka-dots, animal print classics and single block colours.
When you’re shopping for plus size swimwear, remember to pay careful attention to the level of support offered by your swimsuit. Choosing underwire support in the bust will help to maintain your shape and flatter your figure while also helping to take the strain off your neck and shoulders. Shelf bras look comfortable but after a few hours of sun bathing or playing in the water, the little support that they offered you at the start may have disappeared altogether. Ideally, you will want to look for adjustable straps which you can alter as you need to but ensure they aren’t too tight and digging into the skin on your shoulders.
If you’re a pear shape, then you are broadest across the hips and the tops of your legs so you may not need the same level of support that someone with a traditional hour-glass shape or more top-heavy apple shape may need. Women with a pear body shape should look for eye-catching plus size swimwear which draws the eye upward and toward your face and eyes. Heavily textured patterns in big, bold prints are a great place to start looking for your ideal swimsuit. The flexibility of the tankini lets you choose heavily patterned tops and match them with dark block colour bottoms.
For apple body shapes, you’ll want to create the opposite affect and should choose plus size swimwear which draws the eye downward and complete the affect with a tummy trimming ruffed or ruched belly balancer. These ruffled compartments over the belly help to draw attention away from round shapes and lengthen your torso so that you appear slimmer and taller than you really are. Pair your block coloured tankini top with brightly coloured or patterned bottoms which catch the eye and show off your figure. Ensure you choose v neck or low scoop necklines which help to shape your chest and elongate the space between your chin and bust line.
Hourglass figures are often considered the most beautiful, so you have a lot of room to explore fashions and styles amongst our plus size swimwear range if you have this body shape. It’s often characterised by equally proportional hips and shoulders with a trim waist and a full bust. If you’re self-conscious about your tummy then opt for the same tummy balancers that apple body shape women will use and draw the eye both up and down with your swimwear design. Stripes can be a great way of achieving this effect or tummy panel designs which are framed by side panels of dark block colours drawing focus toward the patterning and texture.
For a little added coverage and comfort while you’re at the beach or poolside, choose from our range of sarongs and coverups. Not only will your skin benefit from protection against the harsh rays of the sun, you can also hide all manner of sins with brightly coloured patterns, loose fitting and flowy designs and pieces which hug the parts of your figure that you want to accentuate, and hide the rest.
Board shorts and swim shorts are another great way to help you shift the focus from parts of your body you won’t want on show as well as offering you great sun protection while you’re swimming. It’s often while we’re swimming that we burn more quickly with sun reflected up off the water to find skin that isn’t normally exposed and is therefore a little more sensitive than the rest of us. Ensure you remain comfortable and covered with our range of overlay and tie up board shorts from our plus size swimwear range.
The entire range of affordable and comfortable plus size swimwear as does our range of women's clothing from Best&Less comes with a sizing chart and guide which you can view online with each garment. Ensure you accurately measure yourself for the best fitting swimsuit or casual beach wear and enjoy your new swimming costume from Best&Less.
