Stylish Plus Size Dresses and Separates

Red Delta Burke Swimsuit

It seems weird to be writing about a pretty swimsuit when a fresh blanket of snow has just fallen in my area but I know many of you are heading to warmer climates in the next few weeks. When I saw this plus size Red Delta Burke Solid Twist Front swimsuit from Swimsuits for All I immediately thought of you guys. I love the twist front on the bodice and the shirred waist. It looks divine on its own but I think a hibiscus or other large brightly colored (pink or purple) wrap from All Sarongs skirted at the hips would really finish it off.

The accompanying accessories are all from Zappos: Jessica Simpson shades, the subdued Onex July sandals (or the Two Lips Pony Sandals in bright yellow), and Ivanka Trump Shopper tote.

Slip on a red beaded bracelet and paint your toes and you are ready to go.

Summer Swimsuit Shopping

Plus size retailers are doing their best to offer a wide variety of fashions for their consumers but when it comes to swimwear there are three shops that stand out amongst the rest for their style and size selection:

Swimsuits for AllBright blue swimsuit from Swimsuits for All.

They have the largest selection of brand name swimwear at affordable prices, often having great promotions on product and shipping. Some of their best swimsuits lines are by Delta Burke, Beach Belle, and Longitude The offer swimwear in sizes size 6 – size 24 (there’s also a small extended sizes section).

Always for MeStriped swimsuit from Always for Me.

This has been one of my favorite company’s since it first opened it’s internet doors. They have beautiful suits from famous brands like Delta Burke, Speedo, and Carol Woir; as well as their fabulous self-titled line. Many of their suits have been featured in Oprah magazine. Their suits are sexy which isn’t surprising since they sell lingerie too. Their plus sizes range from 14 to 26.

Their main products are bras and every day way but they have a basic selection of swimwear always on hand at very affordable prices. They have a popular Trimshaper line that is available in sizes 14 to 26 (there are a few suits in extended sizes up to 32).

Delta Burke Swimwear

Delta Burke has been designing plus size clothing since the early nineties but one of her most successful lines is swimwear. And one of the best shops to get plus size Delta Burke® swimwear is at Swimsuits for All.

Surfing for plus size swimwear at Swimsuits for All is pretty easy too. They have a plus size section that is divided into further categories for designer, collections or type of swimsuits.

I found just over ten Delta Burke® swimsuits when I was there today. One of the things I’ve noticed over the last year is that Swimsuit for All’s selection and available sizes changes quickly and often. In other words if you find something you like don’t delay because it may not be there the next time you come back. This may sound like a bad thing at first but all it means is that you are less likely to see the curvy girl next to you in the same bathing suit.

Three of my favorite swimsuits from their Delta Burke collection are:

Delta Burke Tigress Plus Size Halter Tankini Swimsuit – This two piece is available in sizes 18 to 24 for $98. I love the chocolate and turquoise fern print. This tankini comes with what is becoming a common feature among two piece swimsuits — the adjustable side ties which allow the swimsuit wearer to hike up the top or bring it down to the hips.

Delta Burke® Jungle Heat Plus Size Twist Front One Piece Swimsuit – This twisted bodice swimsuit is available in sizes16 to 24 for $69. I love twisted bodice accents especially with sweetheart necklines. They are especially flattering for the chest. This one also comes with wide straps for extra support.

Delta Burke® Domino Plus Size High Neck Tank Swimsuit – This high neck swimsuit with unusual stripes comes in sizes 16 to 24 for $78. If you like to have a little more thigh coverage then it also comes in a swimdress.

Speaking of Delta Burke Swimdresses Always for Me carries three styles not yet available at Swimsuits for All.

Delta Burke Swimsuits

The Delta Burke swimsuit has been a long time running successful line for plus size women. The Designing Woman who has been spending most of her days on Broadway has a new line of suits for spring and Always for Me is offering a limited edition tote bag to go with each purchase.

I took a gander at the offerings and what I found was a small selection of practical swim dresses. I have to say that the Crossroads Color Block Swimdress is by far my favorite. It comes in sizes 16 – 24 for $98. I like the “tennis dress sportiness” of this swimsuit that makes it comfortable to wear out of the pool as well as in the pool.

This plus size swimsuit and lingerie company also carries Carol Weir, It Figures, Longitude, Miracle Suit, Speedo, Christina and their very own Always for Me trendy line.
