In some Ruebenesque fantasy it would be easy to find Plus Size Swimsuits for women, but here in the 21st Century it seems really hard. Interesting when you consider that less and less of our population actually fits any other category. But for some reason fashion designers seem stuck on the idea that women want to look like 12 year old boy type stick thin models. If you doubt that, go try on some swimsuits today. If you normally wear a size 8 dress or jeans, you would think you would wear size 8 swimsuit, right? But no, you probably wear size 12 bathing suit. Swimsuits for women should fit real women. They want you to feel bad, I swear!
Well don’t fall prey to their madness. Real women have curves. Here on this page are plus size swim suits for real women.* There are lots of women’s plus size swimsuits for you to choose from, and now manufacturers have made it even easier for ladies by selling swimsuit tops and bottoms separately so you can mix and match for lots of different looks. There is bound to be a plus size swim suit that suits your style here, but if not, just click on a picture to see many more.
*I mean no offense to my slender readers. I have many skinny friends who are real women. I am just pointing out that there are more plus size people than slender ones.

Plus Size Swimsuit Types
There are so many designs and styles of swim suits nowadays, so you’re sure to find one you love that has your favorite colors in it!
The swimdress is a very attractive swimsuit for plus size women. There are many gorgeous selections available, each with their own special style and touches. The swim dress will help hide any stomach pooches that you might not want to show. The dress-like top flows freely so that the swimsuit doesn’t cling to you or show unwanted bulges.
A swimdress normally is long enough to cover your swimsuit bottoms, too, so it looks almost as though you have on a pretty tennis dress or something you’d wear someplace besides to the beach. I think these plus size swimsuits for women are so fashionable and a great choice for a day at the beach!
A skirtini or shortini swimsuit includes a long halter top with matching shorts or briefs. These are nice because they are two piece, which makes using the bathroom very convenient, plus many times these pieces are sold separately so you can mix and match colors and sizes. Not every woman is the same size on top as she is on the bottom!
Skirtinis can also be similar to a swimdress, however they are usually more form fitting. They are a comfortable and practical choice for the plus size woman who wants to look stylish and trendy on the beach or by the pool!
A tankini can be somewhat similar to a swimdress, but perhaps not a flowing on top. It features a pretty tank-like swimsuit top and bikini briefs. Sometime these are sold in separate pieces and sometimes as a set. These flatter the plus size woman nicely. You will look stylish and sexy in a beautiful tankini, and you’ll be proud to walk on the beach or sit at the pool with family or friends. Be proud of your body. Every woman is unique, and no woman is perfect! Forget the stereotypical women that the media exploits. Most women are not like those in any way!
One Piece swim suits are form fitting suits that cover you from top to bottom. They are slimmer fitting than the swimdress and skirtinis, but if you swim a lot or surf or participate in water activities, you probably want a suit that doesn’t have a separate top, because loose-fitting swimsuit tops can easily fly up and show things you might not be willing to show! Some even come with snap crotches which makes things convenient for you, too!
Black Plus Size Retro Dot Swimdress
How cute is this classic polka dot swim dress in a retro style? Available in aqua and royal blue too, all with the same mini polka dots.
A swim dress is definitely the most flattering choice if you are uncomfortable and want to hide your shape. Many women don’t like form fitting swim suits, not just plus size women. I like modest swimsuits myself and swim dresses in particular because you can go straight from the beach to the mall, they are so cute. After each of my children was born and until I lost the baby weight, I wore swim dresses instead of form fitting suits.
Aqua Splash Plus Size Ring Front Halter Skirtini
My favorite swim suit on this page. Beautiful and still modest. And I’m not putting up a photo of myself either, but I own this one, as I loved it the minute I saw it. It’s exactly as pictured, and the back is a scoop back that is not too low.
Blue Print Plus Size Shortini Swimsuit
50’s Retro meets Hawaiian surfer is what this swimsuit is all about and it looks gorgeous on anyone. Available in other colors too. This is the famous pinup style that Marilyn Monroe was famous for. I really like the retro 50’s look even though she was befor
