7 Stylish Plus Size Pieces for your Next Vacation

When it comes to packing for a summer vacation, I’ve got you covered, dolls! Let’s dive into my must-haves for a fabulous getaway. 

For reference, my sizes are:

Height: 5’10

Top: size 14

Bottom: size 18

Shoe: size 11W

A Stylish Plus Size Swimsuit

First up, let’s talk swimsuits. 67% of American women wear above a size 14, if you’re looking for a cute plus size swimsuit, you’re not alone! I recommend checking out >>>Summersalt<<< they have really chic timeless styles, >>>Bravissimo<<< they have great bikini tops for busty girls, but their bottoms aren’t as high waist as I prefer.  So I buy a bunch of Bravissimo tops and swap them with bottoms from >>>Lands End<<< for super high waist bikini bottoms, and >>>Lane Bryant<<< for plus size swimsuits. These brands offer the best plus-size options that will make you feel like a total beach babe.

A Soft Gauze Dress

Next, the dress of the summer: a soft, breezy gauze dress. I have one in three different colors. They dress up/down so easily, from heels to sneakers to barefoot on the sand! You can find stylish options at Anthropologie that are perfect for those sunny days and beachside strolls.

An Unexpected Coverup

When it comes to beach cover-ups, I say there are no rules! Some of my favorite coverups were designed to be traditional dresses. When I stumbled across >>>this tulle dress from Anthropologie<<< I knew I wanted to wear it over my swimsuit on vacation!

A Beach Hat for Big Heads & Sisterlocks

I want you to protect yourself from the sun with a stylish summer hat, but if you have a big head and/or a lot of hair, it can be challenging to find something that fits! Here’s my secret hat hack: cut the top of your hat off and pull your hair through it to accommodate sisterlocks and larger heads! I got this hat from >>>Anthropologie<<<.

Cute Comfortable Shoes

For cute and comfortable sandals that cater to wide feet, I recommend checking out >>>Naturalizer<<<  I danced all night in my naturalizer strappy sandals and >>>Vionic<<< if you need relief from plantar fasciitis & heel pain like I do. These brands prioritize both style and comfort, ensuring you can explore your vacation destination with ease.

A Plus Size Tennis Skirt

You heard it here first, dolls– tennis skirts are the new biking shorts, mark my words! Thankfully this is a fun trend that curvy girls can participate in with ease. >>>Nike<<< has you covered with their range of plus-size options, including the iconic tennis skirt (with bike shorts attached, thank you chub rub relief!). Embrace the athleisure style of summer and stay active in style.

Now that you have the essentials, it’s time to pack your bags and embark on a summer adventure. Remember, confidence is the best accessory, so rock your fabulous outfits and enjoy every moment of your vacation!
