If you’ve been searching high and low for the perfect plus size swimwear, look no further! Every year, I grow my swimwear army and collect the best suits around. Now, I’m showing you where I get them!
I am really hoping we start seeing the high waisted trend start getting a little lower (I’m ready for BELLIES OUT!), but right now the high waist suit reigns! And, since we’re almost into May, it’s time to get shopping!!! Thank goodness we’re not stuck in ill-fitting tankinis and one pieces that squeeze us so hard we can’t breath. Options are increasing, and this post is gonna tell you all about them! Let’s dive in!!!!
Good American is doing what I need with plus size swimwear. I have been desperate for sexy swim in bold colors for too many years! Their “always fits” designs are super stretchy and contour to so many different shapes. Their sizes go to 5x in swim and start around $25.
Eloquii is blowing me away with their new swim line. I’ve got to try a few of these and I am completely obsessed! Better yet? They go up to size 28! I have high hopes for where this swimwear line is going and it’s bright bold future!
Bringing back the chic-ness of the one piece swimsuit, I love this year’s selection from Ulla Popken. Beautiful suits that you can count on fitting your plus size body. Sizes up to 34, and prices starting around $45.
Affordable, available, accessible. Target’s line of women’s plus size swimwear has a style for anybody and they continue to add new styles all the time. Over the last several years their designs have become more fun and stylish, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the season holds! Prices starting at $20.
Fashion To Figure
I’m in love with Fashion To Figure’s new plus size swim line! The cuts are interesting and unique while also keeping our plus size bodies in mind. The patterns are fierce, and the color selections are anything but neutral! Prices start around $30 and sizes go to 4x.
Lane Bryant isn’t your mommas plus size swimwear destination anymore. They have trendy, sexy suits that are created with curves in mind. Lane Bryant’s plus size swim goes to size 30 and starts around $40.
If you need a swimsuit fast, there’s no better place than Amazon. When you’re shopping on amazon, look for plus size swim with size charts and as a general rule I size up at least 1-2 sizes in any brands that I don’t recognize. Prices are cheap, starting around $10.
Adore me is a subscription brand with some of the cutest swim, lounge, and undies around. Their suits fit beautifully, and mine have lasted me many seasons of consistent wear in chlorine. Prices start around $35, sizes up to 4x.
Traditional, well-fitted, sizes that you probably know plenty about – Old Navy continuously has easy to wear suits that are affordable. Prices start around $25 and sizes are available from 1x-4x.
If you’re a funky vintage-loving, retro, beach going babe you’re going to love what they’ve got! Lots of one piece options with low-cut leg styles that are so cute! One of their suits is what was my “gateway” into the bikini world. It gave me tons of confidence and made me feel great being back in a bathing suit after many years, so I have a special place in my heart for them. Sizes up to 4X and prices around $40.
Alpine Butterfly Swim
You will see me in a new Alpine Butterfly Swim suit every season, and can even check out a Youtube haul with many of them! ABS consistently puts out new exciting bikinis made just for plus size bods, and we here at Fat Girl Flow are big fans! Prices start around $50, sizes to 6x.
Shein has come pretty far in the last several years. When I ordered from them 5 years ago the sizes were all over the place and barely fit – today they’re fairly consistent and offer a TON of options at SUPER low prices. Like really cheap plus size swimwear ya’ll! Give yourself some serious time to scope out this site!
If you’re looking for a good sporty suit, Superfit hero has the absolutely best plus size swimwear! The bad ass babes behind this brand have created incredible fitting swim suits for fat bodies up to size 7x. You can use code FGF15 for 15% off!
I’m super excited for it to get warm and for the internet to be bombarded with fat girls in swim suits!!!! I’ll have some outfit posts up with my swimsuits for the season as soon as possible! Until then, happy shopping!

Thank you so much for all of your hard work compiling this list, Corissa! Do you have any specific suggestions for those of us with an extremely large bust? I am a 40 O cup in US sizing and have an impossible time finding something I can even fit my bust in and things without support cause me a lot of pain to wear. Hopefully you may have heard something! xx

Hey, I know it’s years after this was posted, so I don’t know if I will get an answer, but where are some good bathing suits for bigger legs? I’m not going to wear a one piece or shorts, and I’ve tried swimpants and I’m out of ideas. Any help would be incredible! Thank you!

So tired of swimsuits made to "control" or "minimize" my body. Just give me a decent racing suit for workouts. Just a regular crossback workout suit in my size that's all. Please.

I have a hard time finding swimsuits in my size. I don't know my exact size to be honest. I'm 5 ft 6 inches and weigh 475 lbs.
