Be Fashion Forward and Find a Sexy New Swimsuit Online

The world is beginning to come around to the idea that beauty does not end at a size four, and everyone wants to look their best even in that very skin-baring garment known as the swimsuit. Yes, the dreaded swimsuit that leaves some feeling that their flaws are blatantly exposed; some women fear as well that swimsuits that cover the skin still do nothing to camouflage all of our bumps and bulges. But why should plus-sized women have to choose between either the self-inflicted ban from the beach or feeling exposed and self-conscious in a swimsuit clearly designed for someone else.

In the past, finding any clothing above size 12, including sexy swimsuits (which should be purchased a size larger to avoid clinginess) was nearly impossible. However, this was also before the advent of the Internet and online shopping which opened up a whole new world of possibilities. The online shopping revolution combined with the fashion industry’s new focus on plus-sized trends has made it easier than ever to find sexy swimwear size eight and above. Retailers in the past were restricted to selling only swimsuits at a brick-and-mortar store, severely limiting the available color, size, and style options, but with the dawn of online shopping, retailers can stock many more items since they are not constricted by the size of the display floor.

Plus Size

Being able to shop for swimsuits online means that everyone can find a flattering swimsuit and feel just like one of the many plus-sized models now getting the attention they deserve. Plus-sized beauties like Ashley Graham (who was the first plus-sized model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition) and Allesandra Garcia (who was recently featured on the cover of SLiNK) are the representatives of a new trend in fashion, and designers are taking notice. New designs are here, and online retailers have more in stock than ever before. Let’s face it, the “skirt” for plus-sized one-piece swimsuits doesn’t cover much but thankfully trends are changing and designers are giving us plus-size girls many different flattering choices. Some of the best options for women’s swimsuits include skirtinis, which make useof the skirtin a more flattering way than traditional designs would suggest. Another choice allows the ladies to mix a bikini top with bottoms that begin at the natural waist and end at the top of the thigh for another figure-flattering look with definite sex appeal.The skiritinis available at swimsuitsforall are longer, reaching the mid leg, and combined with the new tankini tops that fall at the top of the thigh, these suits are very flattering on everyone.

Designers like the aptly-named Alessandro Sartori are borrowing slimming details that “trick” the eye, using techniques such as triangle insets at the waist in a different color which causes the eye to see an hourglass figure. Likewise choosing a slim panel on the sides of the tankini top with a lighter color combined with a dark front panel with piping causes the body to look slimmer. Other designers are opting for swimsuits that appear to be sundresses with an A-line ruffled skirt that ends at mid-thigh. To see these and more trendy plus-sized swimsuit options, head over to the swimsuitsforall website and peruse. It’s taken some time, but sexy figure-flattering swimsuits that make you feel great are now easier than ever to browse through and purchase online. It’s a good time to be a plus-sized woman.
