UPDATED: 4/17/19 Even though we’re in the middle of the “100 Places To Shop For Plus Size Clothing” series ( part 1| part 2 | part 3), we’re going to do a special post for plus size swimwear. A lot of the swimwear in this post will be coming from retailers mentioned in the series, so I wanted to make a special space just to highlight all the amazing swimwear options.
I am really hoping that in the next couple years 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!!!!

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.
I can’t even handle how many awesome swim suits they’re putting out this year. I’ve bought 2 already and there’s no way my budget will be able to keep up with the adorably on trend fatkinis they’re pumping out. With sizes up to 3X and each piece for around $20 this is a great go to place for plus size babes under a size 24.
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!
I believe this is Fashion to Figure’s first year carrying swim, and I am already in love with that little striped number down below! Reasonably priced with options you don’t see elsewhere – I’m excited to see where their plus size swim collection is headed! Sizes up to 24, starting around $30.
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 $75.
Avenue is my go-to for activity centered swimwear. I love their site for practical suits that you know won’t bunch that are great for days at the lake with family. Their styles are a little bit more modest and go up to a size 32! Prices start at $30 and they are regularly having sales!
Stepping up their game this year, Torrid has some really cute suits that are unique and fun! Best of all, these suits go up to a 5x. Prices start at about $75.
CoEdition is a fairly new site for plus size brands. They cater to the affordable luxury market and carry some really cool brands that you cant find in a lot of other places. Bruna Malucelli and Alpine Butterfly can both be found on their sites. Alpine Butterfly goes up to 5x (and is one of my favorite swimwear brands), and many of their other brands go up to 3x. Prices start around $100.
With the inclusion of Gabi Fresh’s amazing line, Swimsuitsforall has taken the fatkini world by storm. They have every imaginable style of swimwear available, in a wide array of colors and patterns. Celebs like Ashley Graham keep their lines fresh by creating new collections each year. Sizes go from 8-34 and prices start around $30.
This one might come as a surprise, but the new Terra and Sky line at Walmart goes up to 5x and fits up to size 36! You can’t find a more affordable suit, so make sure you check them out during your swim search!
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.
This site is super trendy! It carries up to size 26 and prices are mid-range! They have a good variety of styles!
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!
