How to choose plus size swimwear?

For lots of women, choosing plus size swimwear that is comfortable, flattering and supportive can sometimes be a challenge. We want everyone to be able to embrace Australia’s summers, as well as those die-hard swimmers who continue hitting the pools and oceans all year round.

While there’s no one size fits all because every woman has a unique body and unique preferences, we offer a wide range of support – from underwire to more relaxed fits – so you can find something perfect for your body. 

The fit and type of swimwear are one of the key considerations when choosing Australian plus size swimwear. Do you feel comfortable in a one-piece, a bikini, or maybe a tankini as a happy medium? Think about this first to ensure you’re investing in something that you are comfortable with, and therefore, more likely to wear.

Once you know what type of swimwear you like, now you can get to the fun bit of choosing the colour or patterns that you’d like. You can choose from pre-matched sets or mix-and-match plus size swimwear tops and plus size swimwear bottoms. It’s a well-known secret that prints are a curvy girl’s best friend, and many swimwear for plus size ladies options will provide patterns to help create a flattering look.

How to care for swimwear?

Caring for Australian plus size swimwear is standard for any size swimwear. Read the instructions carefully just in case it does deviate or provide particular insight into caring for that particular garment. 

Otherwise, it’s important to rinse your swimsuit with cool water after using it, regardless of whether it’s been in a chlorinated pool, spa, or the salty ocean. Fill up a sink or tub with some mild detergent and cold water, and then submerge your swimsuit to give it a more thorough handwash. 

You might see sunscreen lotion stains or tanning splotches; this is the time to get them out of your swimwear so it doesn’t stain. Then gently squeeze water out of the fabric without wringing it, which damages the fabric. Air drying the bathing suit on a flat rack out of direct sunlight is the best way to dry it. Once it’s dry, store your swimwear flat and ensure there’s no moisture left in the garment.
