Are you planning to buy a beautiful plus size swimsuit that you will fall in love with, but wondering if it is the right choice?
Have you ever bought a bathing suit online but then found out that you had chosen the wrong size and it didn’t fit?
Long ago, when girls and boys ran and played on the beach, plus-size women would sit and watch the fun these young men had. Now more and more designers are entering the market making especially plus size swimsuits for our women to participate and have fun. Self-conscious women who used to hide behind long skirts on the beach can now tease and appease in their flattering full-figure swimsuits.
When selecting your swimwear, ask yourself a few questions:
1- Do you know your body measurements (torso length / bust / waist / hips)? Swimwear manufacturers / designers have their own size charts and they may be different. For example, designer A’s size 12 measurements are equivalent to designer B’s size 14.
2- Do you look at the size chart of the swimsuit and compare it with your own measurement? Don’t just rely on the size itself, because if your clothing size is 14, it won’t be the same as size 14 in swimwear. And size 12 in the US is equal to size 14 in the UK / or Australia.
The above factors are quite important and you should know them before buying a swimsuit on the Internet because they will save you the trouble of returning or changing.
3- Do you know your shape: triangle (narrow shoulders / big hips); deviated triangle (opposite triangle); rectangular (wide shoulders / no waist and large hips); hourglass (wide shoulders / large bust / small waist / large hips)?
4- What styles / designs of swimsuits would suit your shape? There are plus size one-piece swimsuits, two-piece tankinis, skirtinis, and swimwear on the market for full-figure women. Usually you will get some advice (from a good swimwear website) on what style would flatter your body as long as you know what shape it belongs to.
5- Do you think what styles of swimsuit tops suit your bust? There are plus size swimsuits with wire bras that can form your bust or soft padded bras that can support the cups. These give you an edge with their smooth accentuated curves and attention is diverted from just one part of the body. Your overall appearance will divert viewers’ attention.
6- What is your personal attitude and comfort level? Your attitude and sense of comfort is very important to your appearance and sense of clothing. If you are a daring and beautiful person and want to show off your curves, choose plus size swimsuits with a deep neck and a deep neckline at the back. A boy’s bathing suit or a bathing suit would be an option for a shy and modest woman.
Finally, when shopping for a plus size swimsuit, think in terms of other accessories that will go with it and be practical. Perhaps a caftan or a beach hat to wear along with the swimsuit will give you the perfect look.
