Looking Good, Feeling Great - Bathing suit shopping?

View Full Version : Bathing suit shopping?

It's that time of year, I need to buy a new bathing suit. I'm wondering where can I shop that will meet my needs as a plus size gal? Bathing suit shopping is a horrible nightmare and I've got a considerable bust which is my main concern! Any good quality bathing suit brands or places to shop? I don't shop in places like Target or Walmart because of the low quality so I'm open to higher end options :)

Lands End. I have large breasts and they have suits for the busty and plus size.

I got this combo. I LOVE it because it's a two piece for easy on and off, but it's a high waisted bottom, so no tummy chub and it disguises tummy fat at the same time.

They have all kinds of options. Just wait for a sale for better prices. They very frequently have 30% off and free shipping deals. Doesn't fit? return it free of charge to a Sears. Actually, you can try SOME suits at Sears, but not that many options.

Thanks these are great! It's such a bummer though to buy online because the models are so skinny. It makes you think it's going to look great on you but then you try it on and it's frump city. I'll check out some of the tankinis although we don't have any Sears here.

Yes, Land's End! They're the best quality and have great sales, plus if you need to go with a larger bust or go petite or tall, you can have it modified. It's the only place I was able to get a petite small with DD and I think I paid around $60 on sale.

They run VERY true to size, so I've never had a problem with their fit. My mom always orders two different bathing suits and just returns one at Sears.

I agree. LANDS END!! I always order one or two swimsuits from them per season. I'd you prefer to shop in a brick-and-mortar store, try Nordstrom. They sell something called a miracle suit that really slims you.
