Plus-Size High-Waisted Bottoms, Swim Skirts, and Swim Dresses

Plus-Size High-Waisted Bottoms, Swim Skirts, and Swim Dresses

If you are looking for great plus-size swimwear, look no further, Lands’ End has you covered. We have the comfiest and most fashionable options around. Let’s look at the options for finding a suit that will make you look and feel great.

Swim Skirts

Swim skirts give you a lovely silhouette on the beach or at the pool while still being easy to move in, whether you are swimming laps, playing Marco Polo, or running races with the little ones on the sand.

If you haven’t tried one before, a swim skirt is just what it sounds like. It’s a swimsuit bottom with a built-in skirt. They come in different colors, cuts, and lengths, so you can find one that fits your style. You can top off a plus-size swimsuit with a skirt with any swim top that you like. They often come with a swim top, but you can mix and match tops and skirts for some fashion fun or even add a rash guard to give yourself some extra protection from the sun.

Swim Dresses

Plus-size swim dresses are a one-stop-shop if you are looking for a new suit. They are a one-piece suit that gives you the style and coverage that you want while also acting as an entire beach outfit before or after the water.

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like you are chasing after your kids or nieces and nephews? A swim dress can make you look and feel put together through it all— from finding the water bottles and sippy cups to keeping everyone safe in and out of the water to splashing and getting splashed. It’s all good in the right swim dress.

High-Waisted Bottoms

With the possible exception of high-waisted yoga pants, high-waisted bottoms for swimsuits are one of the best fashion inventions ever. They give you the comfort and coverage that you crave while keeping you stylish all day. Plus-size high-waisted bathing suits move with you in a way that their shorter sisters just aren’t cut out to do.

Despite rumors to the contrary, swimsuit shopping is fun! Check out several potential new suits in front of a full-length mirror. Flaunt your best features in your plus-size swimsuit. Find a cut that will show off your curves if you like. Do you look great in just the right shade of blue? Find that blue in a suit. If you are shopping online, make sure to choose a retailer with a great return policy (like ours) in case a suit or two don’t work out. Swimsuit shopping is about experimenting with fashion and comfort.

Whenever you are trying on swimsuits, also make sure to recognize that swimwear is activewear. Make sure that your suit will work for you while you are splishing, splashing, bending, and reaching—not just when you are stationary. Practice moving around just like you would at the beach or the pool. Does your suit stay comfy? Does it stay in place? Does it look the way you like a suit to look? If the answer is “no” to any of these questions, move on to another candidate. There is a great suit out there for you, and you shouldn’t compromise.

Get the Support You Need

Make sure that your swimsuit gives you all the support you need where you need it. One of the advantages of shopping at Lands’ End is that we offer just about every type of women’s swimwear that there is, from one-piece suits to tankinis to modest swimwear and more. Many women like to wear underwire swimsuits. Just like an underwire bra, the right one will give you all the support that you need while being so comfy that you don’t even notice that it is there. We also offer swimsuits with tummy control if you like that option.

Beach Cover-Ups

The right plus-size cover-up is like a great dress—just throw it on, and you know that you will look and feel your best.

Feel free to think out of the box when it comes to beach cover-ups. If you can wear it to a pool or a beach and it covers up all or most of your swimsuit, it is a cover-up. In addition to garments sold as cover-ups, consider your favorite pair of shorts and a T-shirt, a midi skirt topped off with a white blouse or even a plus-size maxi dress as cover-up candidates. Especially if you will be going out to lunch before the beach or out to dinner from the beach, it can be nice to have a regular casual outfit as an option.
