I’m going on vacation this week, so I started my swimsuit search a little early. With so many new swim lines coming out, Plus Size Princesses have a lot of options (especially if money isn’t an issue). But if you’re on a budget like me, cute suits at reasonable prices are the way to go and they’re not hard to find. Getting cute cover-ups from sites like ABC Distributing are also a way to go, to wear over your swimsuit.
I’m really trying to get away from the skirted swimsuits like the one I picked up last year for my Miami trip. I know they’re supposed to flatter/hide a bigger figure, but I’m over it. If I’m going to embrace my curves, I need to do it on the beach too!
Soooo I found three really cute suits on the OneStopPlus website:
The geometric pattern on this suit makes my waist/tummy look defined and it has a supportive bra cup. I also think that halter cuts are super flattering for PSPs, so this was a great find. I can’t wait to rock it on the beach!
The next suit I picked up was for the gym. I swim twice a week and I wanted a suit with more boob support. This simple suit keeps the twins contained while I’m swimming laps and I even tested it out during a water aerobics class. The bouncing and jumping wasn’t a problem at all….
Lastly, from talking to different TBGB readers online I’ve realized that girls who are above a 3X often have even more trouble finding cute clothes. When I was looking at the OneStopPlus site, I noticed that a few of their suits go up to a size 34! They were kind enough to send me an extended size suit. I asked a friend who is a size 30/32 to test it out and she had nothing but good things to say. This black suit with an adorable white bow is convertible. It can be worn strapless and the straps are adjustable! She said that she usually has to wear a bra with her suits, but this one provided lots of support. So, if you’re above a 3x or 22/24, you might want to check for this suit and the other extended size styles online.
