If you're a plus-sized woman, you know the struggle.

You want to look good in a swimsuit, but you don't know how to pull it off. You might feel like you're stuck between being too curvy and not curvy enough, or maybe it's just not your style. Either way, it can be tough to find flattering swimwear that fits well and flatters your body type.

Fortunately, there are several steps you can follow to ensure your look fantastic in your swimsuit! Here are some tips for finding the best fit for your body type:

Support is an important aspect of swimwear that you must never skimp on if you want to show off your figure and enjoy the summer weather. To prevent any mishap, it is recommended you use an underwired bikini top.

The beach is the ideal location for flaunting your busty frontside. One-piece bikinis with an open neckline are the best option if you want to reveal some flesh.

You'll also want to make sure that any bottoms you purchase are made of material that will help hold in moisture while still being breathable—this is especially important if you have cellulite
Don't worry about the label! If something doesn't fit well on one side of your body, chances are it will look even worse on the other side. Switching sides every time you put on a new piece is going to make everything look bad! Instead, try looking for pieces with adjustable straps over the shoulders or at least no elastic at all down the backside so there's less room for movement when bending over (and less chance of having lines from where fabric rubs against other fabric).
If you have trouble finding swimwear that fits well over your hips, try going up a size in your bottom half (or two sizes if you prefer) when ordering bottoms.

Don't be afraid to get creative with your favorite swimwear styles. If you want something more low-cut, try a bikini top with an open back or side cutouts that show off your arms. If you like a more modest look, try a two-piece set: one piece with long sleeves and another with short sleeves and a high waistband.
The shapes and curves of plus-size women vary. You need to identify your body type before you can style your swimming suit in a way that flatters it. It could be an hourglass, diamond, apple, pear, or a combination of any of those. But once you understand it, you may shop wiser and appear more seductive.
Go for a size that makes you feel comfortable, even well-fitted clothing can make you seem and feel seductive. Understand the difference between tight and fitting. You should stop wearing that size and move on to the next one as soon as wrinkles and crinkles start to appear.


Nothing is more seductive than assurance. Yes, it is that simple. With these tips given and a little confidence, you can pull off any look and turn heads. No matter your body type, just put on your most confident persona and just go for it, whatever "it" may be.
