Best Plus-Size Swimwear for Active Moms

Summer is all about creating fun memories with your little ones. Active moms who plan on spending a lot of time at the pool or beach shouldn’t have to worry about their swimwear. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the best plus size silhouettes for summer. These styles will not only accentuate your figure, they’ll also keep you comfortable, dry, and shielded from the elements. With one thing less to worry about, you can focus on having a good time with the kids. Whether you prefer modest swimwear with ample coverage or the freedom of a two-piece swimsuit, there’s something to suit your style.

Stay Protected in a Swimdress

One of the best plus size silhouettes for active moms who want extra coverage is a swimdress. This design is just like a summer dress with all the added benefits of a swimsuit. It features a water-ready dress over a one piece. Quick-drying, chlorine-resistant, and equipped with UV protection, this swimwear is ideal for active summer days. Not only do swimdresses provide more coverage than traditional swimsuits, they allow you to swim and sunbathe in comfort and style. Swimdresses are modest yet feminine with a touch of retro chic. When you’re out of the water, they’re easy to style for the boardwalk or grabbing a bite to eat. Just slip on a pair of water shoes or flip flops and add a hat and you’ll be good to go.

Lands’ End has a wide range of swimdresses made from durable fabrics in eye-catching designs that will make you stand out. No matter which style you go for, you can expect great coverage and a comfortable fit. The streamlined design is flattering on any shape with plenty of cuts and necklines to choose from to accentuate your best features. Now you can go from the pool or the beach to your next kids’ activity with ease. No coverups or changing necessary!

Go Sporty with Swim Shorts

Plus size swim shorts offer all the same benefits as a swimdress with a more athletic design. Despite their name, swim shorts aren’t just for swimming in. You can wear them for pretty much any activity, which makes them ideal for active moms. Go from the pool or beach to whatever’s next on the summer schedule without having to change your suit. Swim shorts are fast-drying and stretchy for maximum mobility and comfort. They also have handy side pockets for stashing any on-the-go essentials. You’ll probably be living in them all season long.

Heading out of the water and on to the next activity? Throw on a t-shirt and slip into a pair of slides for an easy, laidback look. Your swim shorts will also look great with a long, flowy blouse and sandals. For a head-to-toe sporty vibe, wear your swim shorts with sneakers and a baseball cap. The possibilities are endless, since you can style them the same way you would a pair of regular shorts.

If you’re in search of the perfect pair, Lands’ End is a great place to start. We have a wide range of plus size styles to choose from, including longer length designs. Our elastic waist board shorts are made from fabric that provides UPF 50 sun protection to keep you well protected. We've got styles with built-in panties for functionality and ones without for a more traditional fit. These shorts feature water-repellent fabric and an inner drawcord for an adjustable fit. Wear them with any plus size bathing suit top to create your own suit.

Keep it Fun with a Swim Skirt

For active moms who like the femininity of a swim dress but want the versatility of a swim short, a swim skirt is a great choice. This swimwearpiece looks cute and provides plenty of coverage for the beach or pool. Swim skirts are fun to style, too. They especially pair well with plus size tankinis, which you can mix and match with to create different suits. In between trips to the beach and pool, it’s as easy to get away with wearing your swim skirt as you would a denim or cotton one. Pair it with everything from t-shirts and tanks, to blouses and short sleeve button down shirts. Add a pair of slides, sandals, or flip flops for an easy, laidback look. To create a flattering A-line shape, wear a high-waisted swim skirt with a bikini top or cropped swim top.

At Lands’ End, we have plenty of plus size swimsuits with skirts to pick from. Our range includes high waisted and mid-rise swim skirts with excellent smoothing effects. We also offer tummy-control swim skirts featuring a longer length and extra shaping at the midsection for a flattering silhouette. No matter what makes you feel most confident, you can expect high quality materials that resist fading and stretching from every design.

We believe every body is a beach body at Lands’ End. All of our plus size silhouettes are designed to boost your confidence and elevate your style. Whatever swim style you go for will have you looking and feeling your best so you can focus on what matters most.
