If your a plus size body, you will definitely wanna go with something like this. This is one of our swimsuits by Carol Wior. It's a great brand. She carries all sorts of swim wear but she has the underwire. The underwire is very specific because more so for plus size you have a larger bust. Also she has this great lining that looks like mesh and it's tummy control. So it's gonna keep you tucked in without feeling too uncomfortable. Plus size, there's tricks to the trade. Wear that's gonna be slimming. Where it has a detail like so. This is gonna give you the minimizing factor in your waist. And definitely wear shoulder straps. Swimsuits' number one priority is comfort. You always wanna be comfortable. If you have any kind of a ties or any thing like that, you're not gonna feel comfortable and you're bot going to enjoy yourself. The kind of line you want for your bottom is gonna be a higher cut. A higher cut's gonna give you that longer look. Show off you thighs, definitely show off your waist because it's gonna give you that lean look and that longer look for as far as the torso goes. Another thing that Carol Wior does for her swimsuits is she cuts it off. So she'll probably pair a black bottom with a printed top. You need to break it up if you wanna wear print. Otherwise, sticking with a solid color is perfect. A black bathing suit will always be slimming as well as this eggplant color. "
