Plus-size fashion is going back to some well-loved basics, bringing this year's swimsuit fashion to the essentials. The swimsuits are cuter than ever, utilizing the best fabrics and flattering colors. You'll find stylish one-pieces and swim separates that you can easily integrate into your swimsuit wardrobe for seamless mixing and matching.
If you need a dependable one-piece for swimming lessons or a flirty two-piece for a day at the beach, there’s enough variety to satisfy you this year. Now is an excellent time to pick up some fashionable swimsuits that will take you from land to the sea in absolute confidence. Here are the best plus size swimsuits for 2021.
Plus size swimwear has become more stylish than ever as swimsuit fabrics and technology become more sophisticated. Supportive, sleek tummy control swimsuits continue to be in high demand because they use special fabrics like Slendertex® to hug your curves in all the right places for an outstanding fit.
Overall, 2021’s swimwear has seen a marked shift toward functionality and timelessness — basically, pieces that won’t be out of style in a mere season. Across the board, styles lean toward secure, flattering cuts instead of complex straps, cutouts, and wrap ties. This is your year to stock up on all the basics, such as classically styled swim separates and one-piece suits, that will supplement and enhance your swim wardrobe for seasons to come.
If we had to pick one item that reigns supreme over all other plus size trends, high-waisted modest bathing suits would top the list. This ultra-flattering cut shows off your cute natural waistline, smooths out your figure, and allows you to show as much skin as you like depending on the top you choose.
Whether you want to go full-on-flirty with a triangle top or be more modest with a high-neck tankini, a high-waisted swim bottom is a highly versatile item that every plus-sized person should have in their closet. When you’re in a pinch, you can be sure that this item can match with practically any top on hand, especially if you select a solid black bottom. 2021 is all about high-waisted and retro silhouettes, and this trend looks like it’s here to stay for a while. Take advantage and grab your favorites while it’s hot.
While the last few years of the 2010s leaned toward ornate, strappy numbers, 2021 is seeing the return of simple, dependable one-pieces with sporty color block patterns. You’ll also see fun florals and geometric prints on the rise. These suits serve multiple purposes, whether you want to conquer some laps at the pool or lounge by the sea because they are both functional and stylish.
Plus size one-piece swimsuits are a must-have for every fashion-conscious person’s swimsuit wardrobe for their many uses and longevity. You won’t have to worry about this kind of suit going out of style in a mere season; instead, you can depend on it to look presentable by the water for years.
Solid colors are back more than ever. Whether you go with a bright red, cool blue, or basic black bikini set, these bold, matchable staples are major wardrobe enhancers. For a no-nonsense swimsuit, get a black tankini. It will be your No.1 secret to looking instantly chic, functioning as your “little black dress” at the pool.
Solid-colored swim separates are also convenient to wear under plus size swimsuit cover-ups so you can easily transition from seaside to land activities. It’s a good idea to have a few solid-colored separates on hand so you can quickly put together a swim look by mixing and matching.
If you prefer a modest style that can easily take you from water to land activities, then a plus size swim dress should be in your closet. It has the same coverage as a tankini top and high-waisted swim skirt but is a convenient one-piece. Solid black swim dresses with tummy control are particular favorites in this style, especially for swimmers who demand flawless shaping. This style also isn’t going anywhere. Even if you get a swim dress in a classic pattern like stripes or polka dots rather than basic black, you will have something that remains in fashion, outlasting many trends.
2021 introduces many attractive plus size swimsuit styles that are both trendy and timeless. Find your perfect swimsuit this summer at Lands' End.
