WHAT IS A SWIMDRESS AND WHY WOULD I WANT ONE?
For those of us who don’t want to bare it all, a swimdress can be a flattering alternative to a traditional one-piece or tankini. Swimdresses provide the coverage you want with the style you crave. The structured tops come in different support levels and the flared hemlines often hit mid-thigh for a more modest look at the beach or pool. Made to fit fuller figures, our alluring swimdresses feature details that make a difference like adjustable, removable straps, soft molded cups, full shelf bras and power-mesh tummy control panels.
HOW CAN I FIND A SWIMDRESS THAT FLATTERS MY BODY TYPE?
Swimdresses may be a blast from the past, but our designs are thoroughly modern. Made from the same fabric as bathing suits, they’re equally suited to swimming, water sports or poolside lounging. To find the right plus size swimdress for your body type, choose a style that balances your proportions and gives you curves in all the right places. If you’re a pear shape, draw the eye upward with strappy styles, wrap fronts and ruffles. If you’re an apple, look for styles that camouflage your waistline with ruching or shirring. Balance out your upper body with swim dresses that flare out at the hips like A-line and trapeze styles. If your body is a straighter, rectangular shape, create the illusion of curves with bold prints, colorblocking or frilly details like ruffles, pleats or bold prints. Hourglass body types have room to experiment; try a V-neck or belted style to show off your natural curves.
