Many full-figured women (that includes me) are self-conscious when it comes to wearing any kind of swimwear. Are we to be blamed? No, a great majority of swimwear shops seem to focus on slim or average sized women who don’t think twice about showing off their figures for the world to see. Luckily, some companies realized this and set up online shops that cater exclusively to plus sized women.

Before we go into what some of these shops have to offer women like us, here is one of the greatest secrets to wearing full figure bathing suits is to choose high quality fabric, which controls curves. To keep up with times and look great, go for prints and high octane colors of swimwear. Don’t stick to traditional black any longer. Some women are busty while others have large hips.

The trick to looking great is to reduce whatever that is too large. So for example, if you have large hips, wear something that minimizes the size of your hips and brings your asset into focus, whatever that might be, your bust, neck or shoulder. Another thing to keep in mind when buying your swimwear is your body shape or type. Are you apple, hour glass or pear shaped?

To make things easier and quicker, both and Swimsuits Just for Us have set up a search by body type feature for their customers on their respective sites. Both of these sites cater exclusively to plus sized women. You can find many different kinds of trendy swimwear from Christina and Delta Burke on these sites. One of the greatest disadvantages of buying online is that you can’t try on the suit prior to buying.

Understanding this, the sites have put up special sizing charts so that choosing the right size for you is like a piece of cake. Just take measurements of major parts of your body like hips, bust, torso and waist first. Then compare them against the chart to determine your size. That’s it. It does not matter what your size is.

The sites have scores of lovely swimwear that range from 16W right up to 34W. Who says that a plus sized woman can’t look hot and sexy? All you need is something like the Serpent Underwire Bandeau Swimsuit which is currently on sale after a discount of 25 percent on I love the look of this teal colored suit which looks like a snake print without being too obvious or gaudy. It is truly classy.

Another one of my favorites is the Fit 4U – Diva Texture Royal swimwear that is currently on sale after a 50 percent discount. The royal blue color is simply amazing and unique. This two-piece suit has lovely ruffles on its front that can nicely hide whatever body flaws you may have. What’s more it is made of soft and luxurious fabric that is resistant to chlorine.

So visiting a shop that caters exclusively to plus sized women is one of the secrets to selecting the best swimwear ever. You get to choose from a great number of colors, designs and whatnot. Another secret is choosing something that hides your body’s flaws and accentuates your body’s asset, all for a very good price.
