I Found the 9 Hottest Plus-Size Swimsuits You Need This Summer

Rachel Farganis Photography

A few facts you should know about me: I'm a size 22, I love to swim, and I am beyond tired of the struggle to find a swimsuit that I love. The problem with so many plus-sized suits is that they either treat my body like a problem to be solved or they are incredibly boring. Save me from another plain black tank suit!


Given that summer is coming soon, I made it my mission to hunt down the best plus-sized swimsuits of the summer.* Not to toot my own horn, but I basically killed it -- we've got cute suits, practical suits, affordable suits, and, yes, even some seriously sexy ones!

I tried them all on, so you can see what these suits look like on someone who has had two kids, thighs that touch, and a body that is perfectly imperfect. Since I got brave last year and rocked a bikini for the first time, I even made sure to throw in another two-piece this time around!

So, click on for the hottest suits of the season, and get ready to feel awesome in the water this year -- no matter what size you are!


* I went shopping and also reached out to several brands. Swimsuits for All, Lane Bryant, and HydroChic all kindly sent suits to try.
