When you’re shopping for a new swimsuit, isn’t it frustrating when you see one that you like, but it looks completely different on you than on the model? This can be especially true when the model doesn’t have the same body shape and the same curves as you. Make the whole process less frustrating by shopping for a swimsuit designed specifically for women with curves. To help you, here are 16 swimsuits that are flattering for curvy women and affordable.
Tummy control swimsuits are for anyone. And Lands’ End has crafted a high-waisted bikini bottom that does the job comfortably with a thin elastic waistband and clean-finish seam that lies flat against your body to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation. And control panels are added all the way up the waistband for a smooth look.
Blouson tankini tops and swimsuits are great for taking you from the water to land, suitable for all sorts of activities since the top part looks like a tank top. It pairs great with a pair of swim bottoms that accentuates your curves.
A V-neck underwire tankini top provides coverage for full figures while also showcasing your curves in a classy way. And the adjustable straps make it perfect for choosing just the right fit. So whether you’re looking for plus-size swimwear or not, the underwire top provides comfortable support.
Imagine taking a super cute summer dress and turning it into something you can swim in. The slimming swimsuit underneath streamlines your shape while the dress over it allows you to take it from sea to land without even changing outfits.
With shirring on the sides and a supportive underwire bra, you can achieve a look that flatters your curves while also providing support. Plus, the adjustable straps allow you to make the tankini top longer or shorter for customizable coverage.
One of the most common complaints about swimsuits is the fact that so many don’t stay in place. Tugging and adjusting are no longer necessary with Lands’ End’s tugless swimwear. And since it’s made with LYCRA® Xtra Life spandex, it also lasts longer and keeps its shape.
Get the benefits of the tummy-control swim bottoms but with the flair and cuteness of a swim skirt. It looks great with any tankini or bikini top as well, so you can have fun mixing and matching.
The active board swim skort is longer than a typical swim skirt, which makes it great for biking along the beach or searching for sea glass. Underneath is super stretch women’s board shorts, with pockets! Curves or not, this skort combo looks great on every active woman.
Halter swimsuits are great for women with fuller figures who want to give their shoulders a break from providing all the support. The way it wraps around the neck transfers the weight from the shoulders to make it comfortable and flattering. And the square neck gives it a little something different if V-necks aren’t your thing.
The name might be a mouthful, but that’s only because this one-piece swimsuit has so much going for it. The cap sleeves not only provide extra sun protection but are also unique and original. The crisscross straps provide lots of support while providing even more unique detail to the suit. This modern swimsuit is sure to get lots of compliments.
Another great swimsuit for dress lovers is this swim dress/one-piece swimsuit. A square-neck dress lays over a one-piece with all-over control. The best part is the bike-short style bottoms with super convenient pockets!
A one-piece swimsuit that’s not only stylish but extra supportive for curvy gals—yes, please! If you like spending more of your time in the water than on the beach, this suit is for you. It’s chlorine-resistant, has a high neckline with a stylish zipper and loads of support. Plus, there’s a hook behind the zipper, so you don’t have to worry about it coming undone.
This tugless, long-sleeved one-piece suit is another great swimsuit for sporty ladies who love spending time in the water. Just put it on once, knowing that you’ll never have to tug at it, and you won’t even have to worry about lathering sunscreen onto your arms.
High-neck sun protective swimwear protects the delicate skin of your décolletage stylishly. This one can be worn with any type of swim bottom. And the UPF 50 sun protection provides an extra sense of safety in the sun.
Lands’ End’s SlenderSuits® are designed to define the body while still accentuating your curves. The V-neck tummy-control skirted one-piece provides a classic, vintage look with its drapery overlay without the extra fabric of a full swim skirt.
This fun and flattering underwire swim top provides full coverage with its sweetheart neckline, and its chlorine-resistant fabric ensures it keeps its cute shape. Lands’ End has so many great swimsuits for curvy girls that they can’t all be mentioned here. But this is a good start if you’re in the market for a great, affordable swimsuit that flatters your curves.
