What to wear is often one of the first questions that runs through your mind when planning your holiday. It’s true, knowing that you look good in the pieces you choose adds to the fun you will have. So, show off your body and dare to shine on the beach this holiday season because no matter what your body type, you can look and feel great in your swimwear.
Retailers are taking strides in promoting new standards of beauty that cater to each person uniquely. Thanks to body positivity advocates like American models Tess Holiday and Ashley Graham on subjects of body image and acceptance, plus size women are now able to embrace beauty, fashion, and style –because women come in all shapes! Even curvy girls can find fashionable swimsuits in an array of sizes online.
What’s great about swimsuits is that they never lose their necessity; you need swimwear for the pool, at your gym, at the hotel on your business, anniversary trip,or after a wedding. Let’s not forget the honeymoons, cruises, hot tubs,holidays at the beach, or the pool parties. Take these opportunities to sport your swimwear without waiting for swimwear to be back in season at the department store. Most stores get their seasonal stock of swimsuits around the beginning of the year, however you can find extended sizes (from 8-34!) at any time of year if you look online. An online retailer like swimsuitsforall has the best plus size swimsuits available, proven by their classic high-neck one pieces being among some of their best selling items.
Classic high neck not your style? Take a look at your body and consider what you would like to show off, and what you would like to distract attention from. To hide a heavy mid-section, try a halter one piece with a plunging neck line, a tankini with a draped top, a peblum, or color blocking patterns.To detract from large hips, select swim-dresses, skirted tankinis, or high waisted bikinis.
To cover up your arms, hips, or thighs, choose from swim skirts, shortinis, board shorts or leggings with swim bras or swim shirts – you may discover that more than one style flatters your shape. Choose fun patterns and colors that compliment your skin tone, experiment with different styles, and take your measurements to compare sizes if you’re shopping online for the full experience. If your suit doesn’t fit you quite as well as you hoped, many places such as swimsuits for all will do exchanges for a full refund – tailor your suit to fit your body perfectly.
More brands are embracing plus sizes than ever before, get on board with plus size advocates like Melissa McCarthy and celebrate your shape, and your love of fashion. No matter what the holiday or occasion you have planned, allow yourself to have fun, relax, and stay confident in what you wear. Your plus size shape is stunning, so why not allow yourself to look and feel stunning in your swimsuit without apology.
