In order to enjoy such pursuits of summer, super-cute swimsuits are required, which means it’s time to do a little shopping. For those of us with amazing curves, here are some seriously cool swimwear lines that can turn up the heat on that poolside look.
1. Gabi Fresh For Swimsuits For All
Plus-size fashion blogger and designer Gabi Gregg is back for another season of incredibly hot swimwear with Swimsuits For All that’s bound to sell out fast (this is her fourth time working with the site). The “Queen of the Bikini” has returned with 14 fresh styles in fun prints (think lips and leopard), bold colors, and details like cutouts and mesh inserts. These suits are runway worthy, so act fast because, well, FOMO.
2. Addition Elle Cactus Collection
Addition Elle is known for providing a wide range of clothing for plus-size women, from lingerie to activewear and everything in between. So, of course, the brand also does swimwear. This alluring line of suits is called the Cactus collection, a Southwestern-inspired line of sleek suits with eclectic prints and eye-catching details. You can find polka dots, stripes, and even tie dye among the offerings. One-piece, two-piece, tankini—doesn’t matter which one you pick. Any of them are bound to get you noticed.
3. Lane Bryant x Lela Rose
Lane Bryant is a staple of the plus-size fashion game. In addition to the amazing designer clothes (have you seen the Christian Siriano collection for spring?), the brand also has amazing swimwear from runway favorites like Sophie Theallet, Badgley Mischka. This season’s collaboration with Lela Rose. Everything from tankinis to two-pieces are available in beautiful, vivid prints and sleek silhouettes. This line also spotlights bold red and white suits.
There is practically no end to the styles, silhouettes, and beautiful hues on Torrid’s site. From lacy, boho-chic cover-ups to delightful, bold prints (currently obsessing on the geo print bikini items), you can be as demure or daring as you like. We’re particularly fond of the swim fit guide that helps you select the right suit. In the guide, you can pick push-up top styles, one-pieces and tankinis that have more coverage, and swing skirts that flatter your curves.
5. Becca Etc.
This swim line made an appearance on Ashley Graham in the pages of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and she was the first plus-size model to cover that particular publication. Becca Etc. is a brand from California designer Rebecca Virtue. The collection features flattering cuts and beautiful Cali-cool prints. It’s perfect for your next laid-back appearance at the beach or for perfecting your poolside pose. You can grab you favorite style via Nordstrom, including this hot-pink tankini with crochet around the neckline.
6. Robyn Lawley
This Australian supermodel (she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italia in 2011) is a woman who knows how to design seriously amazing swimwear. Perhaps it’s from her years of modeling similar looks. Robyn Lawley‘s newest offerings feature daring cutouts, wetsuit looks, and more details nabbed from the athleisure trend. The sporty, sexy shapes are designed to flatter your frame. Get ready for your hottest summer ever.
Everyone’s favorite fast fashion retailer has some seriously drool-worthy swimwear at incredible prices this season. We love Forever21‘s ornate cover-ups and flirty patterns (think pineapples, metallics, and gingham). And at these prices, we’ll just grab a few for our beach and pool exploits. Why stop at just one when you can have, you know, ten?
