How to Choose the Right Plus Size Bathing Suits
Everyone enjoys a good day on the beach or at the pool, be it to swim or just to enjoy the sun. Of course, it also gives you a chance to show off that new bathing suit you bought last week and haven't worn yet. Women like to know that their bathing suits compliment them, but not many realize that not all body shapes are fit for bikinis. Whether you are a size 6 or a plus size, bathing suits depend for the most part on the body type and bra type. What feels comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else.
For example, plus size bathing suits are harder to find than other sizes, and yet they are more important. For an overweight woman, the bathing suit she chooses can make her look very good, or very bad. A bikini is definitely not a good choice, and neither are stripes. Plain colors work best. A one or two piece bathing suit can be appropriate, as long as the two-piece covers the stomach. There are some bathing suits that have short skirts attached, which might be more comfortable in the long run and will go a long way towards making women feel better about wearing bathing suits out in public.
Fabric and bra type also affect the comfort level. Most swimwear is made of polyester, but some of them stretch more than others and those are the ones you want. Bathing suits that are too tight will chafe, and there is no need to worry that the ones that are a little looser will fall off; that won't happen as quickly as you might think. With regards to bra type, the suit can be under wired or have a soft cup or occasionally both. This depends more on what you are used to; neither of them is better than the other.
Whether your body shape is triangular or a classic hourglass figure, there is a swim suit just for you. A sports equipment store is a good place to start your search and if they don't carry the suit you need (and this sometimes happens with plus size bathing suits) simply try the department store closest to you. Chances are they'll have exactly what you're looking for. On the off chance that they don't, you can search for bathing suits online. Most online stores deliver directly to your doorstep, and you'll be enjoying the sun and water before you know it.
