*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Victoria requested a few picks for plus sized bikinis, and before I dig in a few quick notes: DEFINITELY check out The Militant Baker’s recent roundup of plus bikinis and The Curvy Fashionista has an entire category of posts on plus size bikinis. If you’re looking for recommendations from someone who is plus sized, I’d start there. Also we’re just entering swim season so there are relatively few suits on sale yet, which is why a couple of these are full price! Now let’s dig in:
Elomi Isis Swim Top – $70, and ships for free
One of the complaints I’ve heard about past picks is lack of support, and this top gets RAVE reviews for comfort and support. I know it’s pricey, but you get what you pay for and although there are cheaper tops available, this guy is likely to both last and work. And it can be paired with the black or black/print bottom of your choice. Available in sizes 36DD – 46GG. A few more sizes available on the Elomi site including HH, and also in aubergine.
Lane Bryant Scarf Print Balconette Top – was $49.95, now $34.97 with code BEACHBABELB
For something a little livelier than solid black, try this light, bright, fun print. Balconette styles don’t work for all busts, but when they work, they’re gorgeous. Sounds like a few folks have had sizing woes, so definitely check the size charts before ordering. Matches the Scarf Print Bikini Bottom, also on sale.Available in sizes 42C – 44DD. Land’s End also has a great paisley style in 14W – 26W.
With visible seaming and a nice deep underband, I have high hopes that this top could be both comfy and supportive. And, of course, the polka dots are right up my alley! Available in sizes 14 – 24, check size charts for details. Pairs with these high-waisted bottoms for $26.34.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for plus sized bikinis:
- ASOS – Lots of cute mix-and-match pieces, including bikini tops that look like they’ve got some real structure to them.
- Swimsuits for All – Loads of amazing styles, including bikinis through size 24 and tankinis through size 34.
- Land’s End – Always a fave for swim in my book, and also does petite plus and tall plus options.
- Modcloth – More one-pieces than bikinis, but the ones that are available are amazing. Especially love this classic red retro style.
