There has never been a better, more accepting time in fashion for plus sizes. More fashion retail companies than ever before are selling plus size clothing, and today there are plus size models who are household names and fashion designers who specifically design stylish clothing and fashionable swimwear for plus size women.
Plus Size Models Taking the Fashion World By Storm
Ashley Graham is a plus size model who has been everywhere lately. She appeared in a music video with Joe Jonas for the DNCE song Toothbrush. She was also featured as the first plus size model on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Robyn Lawley is another plus size model breaking down the barriers for curvy women in the fashion industry. She has been photographed with other plus size models to promote stylish swim wear for women. Tess Holiday is a plus size model, fashion designer and a makeup artist who celebrates her body by wearing pinup style clothes, hair and makeup.
Not long ago fashion magazines would have stated that women who are plus size should avoid wearing anything but a black or dark colored one piece swimsuit with no pattern. These out-dated ideas have since been debunked and plus size bikinis are now quite popular. Colors and patterns are also encouraged and are designed to make plus size bikinis just as fun as any more size bikinis.
If you’re planning a winter getaway to a sandy beach, consider an online retailer that doesn’t have to worry about overhead or limited rack room. A retailer like swimsuitsforall has your plus size bikini options covered, including Ashley Graham’s own personal swimwear line.
If you’re curious about how these items might look, plus size or body-specific bikinis generally have high waist or skirt swim bottoms to help you capitalize on your best body features, while hiding problem areas. The tops are designed not to be tiny triangles, and are supportive of any bust size. Some variations of the plus size bikini have swim tops that are more shaped like a tank top or a bikini top with a fringe on the bottom to accent the waist. Black or dark colors can be flattering for some plus size swimwear, but don’t be afraid to try out something different. A floral, polka dot or geometrical swim suit in bright colors can be just as flattering when designed carefully.
This holiday vacation season, you ought to buy a new plus size bikini while you prepare for your trip — and channel some of the body positive vibes Ashley Graham and Robyn Lawley are throwing your way. It will make you that much more excited to spend time at the beach or pool to get a brand new, stylish plus size bikini.
