Stunning Swimwear Made for Curves

  |   By Linzi Reardon

Summer after summer I struggled to find swimwear that would fit my large bust but also look super cute, too. Throw in the added complication of being plus size, and I often felt I had no other option than to squeeze into a wetsuit and be done with it.

Things have now, thankfully, changed and there is a wealth of gorgeous, well-fitting options out there made for curves. I’ve sifted through the pieces on offer and picked out my favorites that are guaranteed to make you wow this summer.
