7 Sexy Swimsuits Fantastic for Fuller Figures

Dear Deborah,

So glad to have found you! I’m a full-figured gal, and I’m recently divorced and dating. I’m going away with my boyfriend, and I need a sexy plus size swimsuit that slims and helps camouflage. Can you recommend some that aren’t dowdy?  Thanks, Jan

Hi Jan,

Congratulations on your new beau! Of course, you want to look and feel sexy in your swimsuit, and when you’ve got curves, that is easier than you think, thanks to the latest swimwear fabrics which work like magic to give your body the support, fit, and shaping it needs regardless of your problem area or size.

Here are a few plus size swimsuits that are slimming, sexy, and confidence-boosting.

1.  Crisscross Swimsuit

Look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds in this stunning, one-piece wrap-style Miraclesuit®.  Draped fabric panels crisscross in the front, defining your waist and creating an hourglass silhouette.

The strategically draped fabric helps conceal excess pounds in your midsection, making you instantly look taller, thinner, and sleeker in an instant. The subtle animal print makes this one of the sexiest plus size swimsuits you will find, without being over the top.

2.  Vibrant Scoopneck

Print swimsuits can help you distract from pesky problem areas. This scoop-neck,  floral print swimsuit accentuates the bust line and has an all-over print that confuses the eye, so it never lands on one specific problem area.

3. Flirty High Waist Bikini

Thought you’d never wear a bikini? The new high waist bikinis are making women of all ages and sizes change their minds. A twist tie top and a ruched 3-panel bottom make these retro-inspired swimsuits easy to wear. And how do you like the burgundy? It’s a refreshing change from hot pink or bright orange.

4. Sweet Swimdress

A swim dress is your best bet when you want to cover your hips and bottom. This frilly purple swimdress from Gottex is even more flattering thanks to its lettuce-edge trim, skirt overlay, full-bottom coverage, and all-over print that keeps the eye from focusing on one specific area.

A plunging neckline, a playful tassel, and trendy dark floral print make this wrap-style one piece a chic and modern option for the pool or beach. A floral print always figure-flattering!

To downplay wide hips and a larger bottom, choose a suit that draws the eye upward. This high neck mesh swimsuit immediately pulls the eye toward the unique mesh neckline to focus attention on the upper body.

7. Tankini

The tankini is a more modest version of a bikini. This high neck tankini offers ample coverage and support up top where you need it. The asymmetrical draping conceals your tummy and elongates your midsection creating a leaner, longer look. Hubba hubba! Talk about a sexy plus size swimsuit!
