Plus Size Swimwear Lookbook

Plus Size Swimwear Lookbook + Video [6 Swimsuit Outfits]

YouTube Collage1

You guys asked for a plus size swimwear lookbook, and I couldn’t help but deliver. I had so much fun looking for swimsuits to feature in this shoot. Honestly, I’ve never really worn much swimwear. I’ve always been super timid and embarrassed, but I realized it’s totally stupid to miss out on something because I’m worried about what other people are going to think of me. I think I’m pretty damn amazing, and that’s all that really matters.

So I didn’t just get one swim suit… I got six. Plus size swimwear has come a looong way in the last few years. I would have LOVED to purchase some of the suits that I mentioned in my Plus Size Swimwear post from a few weeks back, but they were all out of stock. Bummer.

Not to worry, I found lots of awesome swimsuits and coverups. Along with some fun accessories to glam up that bikini, or midkini, or fatkini, or whatever you want to wear. 😉

Outfit details are listed below each photoset. Check out the video lookbook I did for my YouTube channel.
