When looking for swimwear, if you are size 14-36 it is a good idea to go for a plus size specialist so that you can get the proper support you need. Good fitting and well-supported swimwear will make all the difference to your shape and will not only improve your appearance, but hopefully boost your confidence as well.
Slimming swimsuits are designed to hold you in where it most matters, it will also smooth out areas and create a more flattering silhouette. For added support you can choose plus size swimwear with extra control panels, designed to hold tummies in and keep bottoms and breasts defying gravity. Control panels, like shapewear, are not always particularly comfortable but if you opt for materials such as nylon and spandex, renowned for comfort, this may ease the tightness that the panels create.
Try to opt for black or dark colurs when choosing swimwear, it is not the most exciting of looks but it is slimming and will always look classic and chic. Loud and bold prints will only draw attention to areas that you may prefer to play down but don’t be afraid to try a bit of color if you opt for blocks of it. Not everyone wants to wear black and opting for blocks of color will ooze confidence.
One-pieces of tankinis are great for plus size women because they are the most flattering and controlling types of swimwear. Go for light cover-ups like sarongs, kaftans or shawls to cover problems areas if you are particularly self-conscious of showing too much skin.
Plus size swimwear is best bought online as plus size specialists tend to have a better selection and a huge variety of designs and styles and it is very important for all women to have more than just a few basic choices.
