Inclusive swimwear has come a long way. Many brands are finally moving away from the toxic culture of offering a separate line for just plus-size options. Big-name brands now include all sizes within the same line instead of listing plus sizes as an afterthought or providing a completely different type of swimwear.
It’s time to embrace summer with confidence and fearlessness. Let your hair down, show off your curves, and strut your new swimwear this summer. Choosing the right brands and having fun with outfits and swimwear options can help you make this a summer to remember!
No matter what size you wear, swimwear bottoms are tricky. You don’t want them too loose because a wave might take them off on the beach, but you don’t want them too tight, leaving little to the imagination. It’s hard to find the right swimwear bottoms that fit in the category of “modest but sexy.”
Thankfully, there are many options that can help, especially for those who constantly find themselves in between two sizes, making your choice that much harder. Swim shorts for women have become widely popular and can be a great option for family vacations or a beach day with the kids. You can choose an option with pockets (which you can never have enough of with kids around) or choose a sporty look and go for colorful biker shorts.
Either way, swim shorts are a great option if you’re looking for a modest way to tan your legs this summer. If you want something that’s a bit more on the flirty side, consider choosing a skort that still gives you more coverage than a bikini but gives you a fun and flirty look.
Finding swimwear tops can also become a challenge, especially if you haven’t taken a recent measurement of your bust. This summer, equip yourself with two types of tops: modest family vacation tops and flirty tops. When you’re around the kids or on vacations such as a Disney Cruise, it’s best to wear tops with coverage where you need it most. You don’t want to have any accidents or have anything falling out when you’re around a ton of families.
Try going for a tankini top or even a comfortable sun shirt which will prevent you from getting sunburnt on sensitive skin and avoid any accidents. Another great choice is swim tops with flowy fabric that comes down past your bust to prevent you from showing off too much skin on accident.
For pool days with your crush or a girls’ trip, don’t be afraid to show some skin! Try a strapless top that will help you get rid of tan lines and make you feel good about your curves this summer. You can also consider a sporty racerback swim bra. These are super cute but still provide you with extra support and coverage if you’re planning to spend an active day on the beach.
Make it an outfit
Make this summer the best one yet by creating beautiful outfits around your swimwear. Find some flowy and sheer pants to wear when you’re traveling or walking the kids to and from the bathroom. These can be the perfect addition to your summer apparel because they’ll go with any swim top you have on but still provide you with a bit more coverage on your bottom when you need it.
If you’re looking for something more casual than that, opt for a coverup kimono. You can let it hang open or add a simple belt to it, covering everything up when you need it. These are a great option for the summer because they’re lightweight and come in tons of fabrics and styles. You can use them on a day in town while you’re running errands or for a day on the beach!
Don’t forget to add a floppy hat to keep you cool and protect your face from the sun. Floppy hats have been a hot trend for many years, and they don’t show any signs of slowing down. Choose a neutral color like tan or black to match all your swimwear with ease.
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget your sunscreen. Now more than ever, we know the importance of keeping your face and shoulders protected from the sun and harmful UV rays. It only takes a few minutes to slather on but doing so can save you money and years of pain and treatment.
