Stylish Plus Size Dresses and Separates

Dust Off Your One Piece

I read an article recently on YaPoo that the bikini is out and the one piece swimsuit is back in. Apparently celebrities are leading this trend and the retailers are soon to follow. The article made it sound like celebrity choice had more to do with a fashion statement then the fact that every tabloid magazine criticizes every bulge or concave on their bodies when they wear a bikini in public. Frankly, I am surprised celebrities do not wear burkas to the beach just to save their sanity.

The conspirator in me cannot help but think that the recent onslaught of fat chics in bikinis and flaunting their folds has sent the media into a frenzy trying to think of ways to get the fat girl back into the onesie. But perhaps that is a bit too paranoid.

Whether you decide to wear a bikini or a one piece, own it, and enjoy the sand and surf.

My Favorite One Piece Swimsuits

I will say off the bat that I am coocoo for bandeau style swimsuits (as well as tankinis) so I found it hard to limit my favorites to just one pieces — but I did.

Always for Me is one of my favorite online shops for plus size swimwear. I especially love their namesake line (they have so many cute tankinis too, they also have a bikini top if you are looking):
