Plus Size Swimwear Lookbook 2015

It’s swimsuit season! Kind of. It’s been raining like crazy here, lately. I guess you could sport a swimsuit in the rain? Doesn’t seem like a terrible idea, now that I think about it… I digress. It’s time to bust out some swimwear, slather on the sunscreen, and rock your stunner shades. I’m so ready. I know finding plus size swimwear isn’t exactly easy, but there are seriously so many options available these days.

I’ve bought about 10 new swimsuits this year, so far, and I’m sharing five of my favorites. I’ll break down the fit of each and what I do/don’t love about each. Ready!?

Wait. I’m not ready. I know a lot of you follow me because of my body confidence videos, which means… you might not be super comfortable with the idea of wearing a bikini this summer. You may be lacking in some confidence when it comes to exposing that much of your body. I get it, trust me. I spent most of my life with a serious distaste for my own limbs. But screw all that negativity.

I want you to feel comfortable. I want you to know that the world won’t end if you expose your thighs. I want you to understand that not being your own idea of perfection, doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy of happiness… and warmth.. and some fucking good times this summer. So, chin up baby girl. Let’s break some necks.

Swim Look #1

The lowdown: This suit is BOMB. The cups are padded, but you can take that crap out if you are packing some heat in the breastesses department. I am not, so the cups are glorious. There is an adjustable strap on the back and lots of support for the girls. The bottoms have tummy control and suck you right in. The print is obviously to die for. I mean, really. Wearing a 2X bottom and 1X top, coverup is 1x/2x.

The lowdown: This suit is interesting. It’s super hot when you’re wearing it. It’s a beautiful little strappy thing. But it does have its issues. If you plan on moving around much, or you know, actually swimming, I’m not sure I would recommend it. Those perfectly placed side strap things move pretty easily. Also, I’m a C cup and I am well beyond filling out this “D/DD” top. I even had a little boob spillage. I didn’t know that was possible for me haha. Overall, it’s hot AF and I am still glad I bought it – weird sizing, aside. Wearing a size 16 D/DD top and 18 bottom.

The lowdown: This swim suit is freaking gorgeous! I bought it after walking into City Chic for the first time while in LA. I’m OBSESSED with how vibrant and fresh it looks. It’s beautiful. But looks are where my love obsession ends, sadly. The bottoms have no support, so I was feeling kinda wiggly in it. The top was a little too much for me. I didn’t have enough boobs to fill it out. Also, it ties around the neck and the back. I’ve seen enough teen comedies to feel slightly uncomfortable wearing swimsuits that someone could just easily untie or you know.. a wave could untie. No thanks. These nips are not meant for public consumption haha. Wearing… size “Medium” but I needed to size down. They were out of “Smalls”.

Swim Look #4

The lowdown: Once again, this swim suit is freaking amazing. It’s the exact same style as the first look in this post, but it obviously has a different print. I equally love them both. I got SO many compliments on this suit every time I wore it. People are really drawn to the bright pink chevron. It fits like a dream and is super cute. Love, love, love. Wearing a 2X bottom and 1X top.

Swim Look #5

The lowdown: Last, and certainly least… we have this choke hold bikini from Forever 21. What is up with F21+ lately? Their sizes are all jacked up and it’s just super frustrating. Last year, I wore multiple Forever 21 suits in my cookbook, and LOVED them. This year, I couldn’t find shit that would fit me right. This swimsuit is super cute, but it didn’t fit me right. The neckline is just weird. They do make this same print in a different style of top and bottom, so REJOICE! haha. Wearing a 2X Top and Bottom.

Swim Top//Forever 21+
Swim Bottom//Forever 21+

I bought all of this stuff with my own cheddar biscuits. These opinions are all my own aaaaand if you want to see me shaking my butt cheeks in these suits, watch my Swimsuit Lookbook BELOW. 🙂

    I looove the second one, the black strappy one. It does look like it would be a pain to actually be at the beach in, but it’s gorgeous.

    Definitely going to purchase the first one, I’m a redhead with freckles, so I think the pattern won’t be too much, plus I love the whole design. Thank you for the look book and video helps to see them in someone without extra filters thrown in.

    On the one from Forever 21, I know you said you are a C cup and I am a triple D do you think a 2x would be to small or anything? I have to buy online since the stores around me don’t care plus size swimsuits.

    Omg now it makes sense I was at forever 21 and nothing seemed to fit right either and everything was completely wrong I just thought I was gaining weigh glad to hear that it’s not just me. Love your look books!

    I think you look amazing…i loves all of them.

    What color bottoms did you get from F21? From all the reviews I read, I can tell that most of the time the colors are not true to the picture, but these look like exactly what I need!

    I love the black strapy one, the pink chevron and the last one from forever 21 amaze balls to say the least. Thanks for spending your chedda biscuits because now I want to spend mine.

    I love the black & pink swim suit! We don’t have any swimsuits in our store, so I just bought a black & white chevron one piece from Torrid but I think my next purchase is going to have to be a bikini like that one! You look great in it!
    Also — I noticed you’re in Chicago. If you’re ever in Madison, Wisconsin get in touch! I own a plus size clothing boutique and we do weekly photoshoots with customers/local models etc and would love to do one with you!

    Wow, I had no idea such gorgeous swimsuits existed. You really look amazing. Now I also have the right image in mind for the label of plus-sized model. You look stunning. I am slim and would love to look that spectacular in my swimmers. 😀 😀 😀 ♡
