It’s currently snowing buckets here in Colorado. While I’m happy to have our sixth snow day of the year, I’m most definitely dreaming of summer, and wishing I could soak up the rays and play in the waves on a beach somewhere.

Summer is my favorite time of the year. I am a total sun child and love to spend as much time at the pool or on a beach as possible. I love the ease that summer brings and the feeling of being in full bloom. My summertime nostalgia inspired me to order a ton of swimsuits — you may have even noticed the few I shared over on my IG.

Sexy & Strut-Worthy: 10 Flattering Plus-Size Swimsuits

I’m typically a two-piece swimsuit kinda gal because for some reason one-pieces never seem to fit my torso just right. Even though I am so short, I think my bum bum takes up all the extra space. Needless to say, I was so surprised that the majority of the bathing suits I kept for the season were one-piece options! There are so many amazing options for this season but I managed to narrow it down to ten to share with you guys.

1. My Favorite Swimsuit: Colorblock With A Cut-Out

I absolutely love Madewell swimsuits — I’ve purchased several of their one-pieces in the past, and the material has always been amazing with a good amount of stretch. When I tried this beauty on, it quickly became a front-runner and will be definitely a suit that I rock this summer! I loved the cut-out, the color blocking, and that it’s both simple yet a huge statement piece. I’ve wanted this kind of suit forever and was so excited that it worked. I’m wearing an XXL for reference.

2. The Super Sexy One

This bathing suit gives me all the va-va-voom vibes and I seriously loved the style. It holds everything in perfectly and is both sexy and trendy for the season. This fit really well and accentuates my curves, too — perfect amount of space for my torso and also a great higher cut at the thighs. This one was another 10 out of 10 for me.

3. Classic Black Bathing Suit

If you’re looking for a classic black suit, this one would be a great option! I love the v-neck, the stretch of the material, and the cute belt with gold detailing. If I could make one improvement, it would have a higher cut in the thigh area, but if you’re looking for full-coverage then this one is totally for you!

4. Floral Deep V-Neck Suit With Ruffles

I’m not typically one for florals, but I really liked how this suit fit me up top. The ruffled sleeves are a nice detail and the material feels great. I prefer a higher cut in the thigh area and this one cuts lower, so not a keeper for me. But the floral pattern, deep v-neck, and ruffled sleeves were definitely very cute!

5. The Scuba-Style Swimsuit

I loved this SO much. It’s a true scuba material and would be great for all of the active things like scuba diving, surfing, etc., The structure and quality of this suit were amazing and I loved the zippers. Plus, I thought the mock neck and racerback were so stunning, and I felt ultra sleek in this suit.

6. Snake Print High-Neck Suit

The two things I absolutely love about this suit were the snake pattern and the narrow square neckline! I didn’t love the lack of bust support or lower cut of the thighs. That being said, I really think that this is such a fun, trendy suit for summer and would suggest it to anyone looking for cute patterns, trendy necklines, and more coverage on the bottom.

7. Textured Black Swimsuit

This suit is another one from Madewell and while it wasn’t for me, I do really love the ribbed detail. The back of this one scoops fairly low and it doesn’t have much support in the chest area — but it was super comfortable and a great option for those of you who like less structure in your suits.

8. Flower Power Suit With a Classic Cut

I was drawn to this one for its floral pattern but didn’t end up loving the suit on me. I did, however, really like the cut and neckline. If you’re a flower power kinda person then this is a great option for you!

9. Textured Off-White Suit

This is the same suit as the black one I mentioned above. I personally didn’t think this color worked well on me, but I do think it could look really elegant on a different skin tone!

10. The One With Tummy Control

I’m all about the color of this suit, but the fit wasn’t quite there. The cut in the thighs felt super-tight and the underwire in the bra was too low. I was really hoping this would work better for me, but all in all, it was just too small and didn’t have enough length nor stretch. This suit has ultra compression and some of the elements that I typically look for, like wiring in the bra area.

    • I loved the scuba one too! I just don’t have any plans for scuba-ing, but the color block one I kept and will be wearing this summer!

  1. Love this post! Thank you Kat! The color block suit really does look amazing on you. I am a different body type- fairly thin and tall, but with no real curves ( pretty straight waist and small chest). I tried a similar suit as the Madewell colorblock suit, and it was not my best look- it just accentuated my non- curves and made me look like a block (literally). . But on you, it really accentuates and highlights your curves in all the really good ways!! Hope you rock it this summer.
