After spending the better part of the last year organizing our pantries, deep cleaning our bathrooms and refreshing our closets, we’re understandably counting down the days until July 4th. This Independence Day we’ll let freedom ring as we wave goodbye to fashion’s rules about what we can and can’t wear in the water. Traditional stars and stripes aren’t the only option. The Lands’ End Swim Team has prepared a full lineup of timeless, chic, must-have plus size swimwear pieces that look perfect when worn anywhere, from poolside to high tide. Here are a few of our favorites that are sure to make a splash on the 4th.
The Lands’ End sleeveless swim cover-up dress in deep sea navy. Need we say more? Toss this cover-up on over your swimsuit and you’re ready to enjoy a long walk on the beach. That was actually the inspiration that led to this cover-up’s design. Check out the embroidery along the neckline. Absolutely gorgeous. You’ll also find this to be the ideal summer dress to wear when attending cookouts, pool parties, picnics and lunch al fresco. It is well-suited for every woman and every occasion.
Our quick dry active board skorts were inspired by our swim skirts (both of which were instant hits when released). They know how to go to the beach and beyond without requiring you to change a thing. The slightly longer swim skirt is perfect for mid-day strolls and bike rides along the lakeshore. That’s because underneath this skirt we’ve hidden a pair of comfy shorts with plenty of stretch. Our versatile swim skort even has pockets. Two in the front, plus a hidden slip pocket built into the waistband. Throw on these skorts on with a swim tee and you’re instantly ready for an all-day-long waterpark marathon. Starting with this swim skort as the foundation of your swim style is the easiest way to create modest swimwear that’s cute and fun, yet comfortable and functional.
The reversible v-neck tankini and the adjustable blouson tankini have been two of our best-selling swimsuit tops for a while now. They know how to go from the beach to the barbeque and back again. Our favorite thing about these plus size tankini tops is that they seem to understand that we are already the right shape, which allows them to look stunning on women of every shape and size.
Our tankinis can be worn to the pool or paired with shorts if you need to go to town. The built-in bra smooths and supports as you splish and splash, while the LYCRA® Xtra Life spandex maintains the tankini top’s flattering fit and helps it last longer. This high quality fiber resists breaking down when exposed to chlorine, sunscreen, and the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays. We’ve cut no corners because the quality of your swimwear matters to us. We believe quality ranks right up there with comfort and confidence.
And since every woman deserves a comfortable, stylish swimsuit that fits perfectly no matter her shape or size, we extensively wear test our tankinis and other swimwear pieces to ensure the fit is just right. At Lands’ End, we design tankinis and swimsuits that embrace our imperfections and emphasize the beauty of every woman.
After all, there is no such thing as finding the right body—because you already have it. What you’re searching for is the right swimwear. That’s where we come in.
