Retro Chic By Torrid - Black High-Waist Bikini Swim Bottoms 
From Torrid

High-Waisted Bottoms — It's hard not to crush on this retro-inspired cut. With the added help of holding in the sometimes  tricky-to-tone lower-ab area, this pin-up inspired two piece will flatter a range of sizes.

Hurley Kings Road Cut Out One-Piece Swimsuit 

Cut-Out One Pieces — Sure, it's a one piece, but that doesn't mean it's any less daring than those options on the last slide. We love to get a little creative in our choice of cutouts that wrap and hug our bods in interesting ways. Just don't forget the sunscreen — these suits can leave you with equally daring tanlines.

Underwire! Punaluu Plus Size Pleated Swimsuit by Beach Belle®

Underwire! Punaluu Plus Size Tankini Top By Beach Belle

From Swimsuit for all

Underwire — An underwire bathing-suit top can be helpful for those ladies who are either busty or in need of a little boost. The underwire not only helps provide support, but with the proper push up, can also create lift for those of us who are looking to enhance our cleavage.

Beach Belle® Plus Size Solid Red Halter Maillot

One piece retro maillot swimsuit by Cacique

Maillots — No matter what your frame or size, some ladies prefer a swimsuit that offers more full coverage, especially around the derriere. Go for a sweet maillot shape that keeps everything in place and avoids any, erm, and cheeky moments.

Two Styles! Palm Beach Plus Size Bandeau Halter Top by Beach Belle

Two Styles! In Circles Bandeau Halter Top by Beach Belle
from Swimsuit for all

Wide-Banded Tops — If underwires make you cringe and strings are just not cutting it for you, the wide-banded top is the perfect solution, offering you the best of both worlds. Also, with ties around the neck and/or back, these options provide a snug fit that's pretty easily customized to your size and shape.

Aquashape® Traditional Lap Suit by Ocean

Chlorine Resistant Aquashape® Aquatard by Ocean
from Swimsuit for all

Athletic — Because sometimes we actually need a swimsuit to swim, or surf, or play. It's a crazy concept, we know, but these styles add some support and coverage for sexy swimwear that's anything but wimpy.

Women's Plus Ruched Slit-Neck Swimsuits

Women's Plus Ruched-Bandeau Swimsuits
from Old Navy

Wrapped Waist — Think of it as your go-to wrap dress' beachy counterpoint. The wrapped-waist swimsuit has all the instant-hourglass power of your fave weekday frock.

Women's Plus Bandeau Swimsuits

Women's Plus Bandeau Swim Tops
from Old Navy

Bandeau — You want as few tan lines as possible, but because we don't suggest going full monty— unless it's just that kind of beach — try something sans straps.

Love you curves no matter what.



Yes we can wear prints

Fashion's most popular prints...

what you 

REALLY call them

Ikat Print — Creating an ikat print is a complicated process that involves binding the threads, piecemeal dying, and weaving everything together after the threads have been dyed. Because of this, ikat fabrics are instantly recognizable by their up-and-down, almost bleeding-dye quality. This process has been practiced all over the world, from Mexico to Uzbekistan and Cambodia to Japan.

Ganado Pattern — According to Navajo art expert Jeff Wood, of Indian Territory Gallery, when rug weaving techniques were introduced to the Navajo (or Dineh) in the late 1800s, they started weaving a few particularly popular designs to trade — these incorporated many now-familiar design elements including diamonds, crosses, and bands. The "Ganado" design typically used deep red vegetal dyes to create a borderless, geometric rug. Most tessellating, serrated, "woven"-style prints in deep, natural hues were most likely inspired by these Ganado designs!

Dutch Wax Print — The history of dutch wax is an international one, with the Dutch adopting Indonesian wax-resist dyeing (batik prints, anyone?), and bringing the technique to West Africa in the 19th century. Says Edward DeCarbo, professor at Pratt, "These fabrics are ubiquitous in African markets and in African daily life. Usually sold in lengths sufficient to make a blouse and/or a head cloth, patterns are selected and garments [are] tailored for the stylish individual, and expresses the significance of an event or situation by wearing a [specific] textile pattern." Known for its splashy, super-bright colors and oversized patterns, Dutch Wax cloth is used to create traditional garments called kitenges, which are worn by women in Eastern and Southern Africa.

Tapa Print — Native to the Pacific Islands, tapa cloth is made from bark and is painted, stenciled, stamped, smoked, and dyed to create abstract animal designs, geometric shapes, and patterns. Usually distinguished for its red, black, and tan colors and tropical motifs, it's a cloth that was traditionally given as gifts and worn on formal occasions in many Pacific islands.

Shibori Print — A Japanese-developed process of tie-dying, shibori involves folding, twisting, and manipulating cloth into lovely, organic patterns. Typically done with blue dye, there are a few distinctive styles of shibori, including concentric circles, striated lines, and scales. Don't call it child's play either — master shibori artists can create some ridiculously elaborate patterns that'd make your camp T-shirts look like... well, camp T-shirts.

Aloha Print To appeal to a wider range of customers during the Great Depression, Honolulu resident Ellery Chun began selling short-sleeved shirts made of leftover Japanese kimono fabric, which included designs with palm fronds, hula girls, and pineapples. The "Aloha" shirt has since evolved into all manners of clothing, and became a staple of Hawaiian fashion.

Batik Print Using drawn-on wax, batik prints are a dying technique that's super popular all over Southeast Asia, parts of the Middle East, and Africa, but the Javanese batik print is the one that's come to currently be the most inspirational in fashion today. Bolder, more complicated patterns are usually worn by nobility while simpler designs are for everyday use — ranging from florals and paisleys to geometric shapes, batiks can come in thousands of styles, but all have that tell-tale delicately layered look.

Chinle Pattern — With wide bands of alternating shapes and stripes, the Navajo-designed Chinle pattern came to form in the '20s. These rugs with long strips saw a surge in home decor popularity during the '30s, and are coming back in a strong way on tons of fashion accessories and textiles, at present. Though the proliferation and general enthusiasm for Navajo aesthetics are awesome, says Jeff, "The most direct benefit [happens] when that appreciation translates to the purchase of original rugs, jewelry, and the artworks as this allows the Navajo tradition to continue."
