Best bathing suits for curvy women

Yes You CAN Love How You Look in Swimwear!
For many women, swimsuit shopping is the ultimate shopping agony. No matter how many swimsuits we try on, we never meet our own expectations for how we should look. Almost all women, of all sizes and shapes, feel this way.

JMS has a beautiful selection of swimsuits, designed for curvy women.

Instead of focusing on your imperfections in a bathing suit, let's concentrate on how to choose swimsuits that showcase the best aspects of your figure. Then you can truly enjoy being at the pool or the beach, knowing your swimsuit makes the most of your bust, legs or waist.

When shopping for plus size swimwear, you have the opportunity to make the most of your curves. Take a second (it won't take long because you know the answer) and determine what part of your body you want others to notice.

If your bust is the best part of your figure, swimsuits offer lots of opportunities. A sweetheart neckline or a halter neckline will set off your curves.

If your waist is small in comparison to your bust and hips, you have an hourglass figure. Choose a suit with a well-defined waist like our popular Chlorine Resistant suits.

Those suits are also great choices if your legs are your best attribute. Plus size women with shapely legs also look terrific in two-piece suits with a brief bottom.

If you are in great shape, a swimsuit is the perfect opportunity to flaunt it. Consider a bikini top or crop swim top with your choice of separates bottoms.

Minimizing Swimsuits

We know there's some part of your body you’d prefer to minimalize in a swimsuit. Okay, we can help with that too.

Hide a thicker waist or rounder tummy with blousy tops, often with empire waists, including tiered ruffles and flyaways. Often these suits will have tummy control panels built in for extra smoothing.

Skirted swimsuits cover more of your hips and upper thighs. These come in a variety of styles, from the separates Skirt to the JMS Flyaway Swimdress.

JMS also offers a separates Short to provide even more thigh coverage.

If you consider yourself too well endowed, you may want a hi-neck suit, like the JMS Hi Neck Miss Butterfly Mesh Swim Top to visually minimize your bust. You may also want a suit with an underwire bra built in for extra support, like the Pembrooke Crossover Hem Tankini Top.

Speaking of Separates if your top size is different from your bottom size, Separates allow you to buy the right size for your body in each piece. You can choose a size 16 top and a size 20 bottom – or vice versa. Separates allow you to get your very most flattering fit.

Finally, buy the size that looks best on you, not the size you wish you were or that you plan to be as soon as you lose 20 pounds. A suit that is too tight or that rides up in back is never going to do you any favors (plus it will feel terrible), while the right size suit will go a long way toward making you smile when you look in the mirror.

Don't hesitate, don't delay. Pick out the plus size swimsuit that's right for you today –– and wear it with pride!
