Times, they are a-changing, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. In the past, plus-size women have had to settle for whatever oversized, floral, and frankly not-so-cute bathing suit they could find, but it’s 2018 and swim designs for the size 14-plus set are finally on-trend.
As awesome as the variety is, it can be daunting to rifle through so many sites and racks to find the best piece. That’s why we’ve curated a collection of the styles we’re loving this season. Whether you’re all about embellishments or live for minimalism, there’s something for every style, budget, and body. Find yours ahead; it’s time to take back the beach.
One of the most sought after trends of the season is a cute knot tie. From tees to swimwear, everyone’s been getting in on the cute addition.

If you like the idea of a tankini but still want to show a bit of skin, this summer’s almost full coverage is the right way to go.
One Shoulder One-piece
Whether due to the temps or the trends, summer and playing with sleeves and straps tend to go hand in hand.

Classic dual shoulder straps have had their turn. This summer, swimwear is stepping back in a good way by bringing back the halter top tie.
The baby tee is are still pounding the pavement as a style staple, so there’s no real surprise that this trend has infiltrated swimwear, as well. Most options feature short sleeves or off-the-shoulder details that can double up as tops for your daytime looks.
