Stylish Plus Size Dresses and Separates

Winter Swimwear

What can you expect from Monif C’s winter swimwear? Probably the best bikini, ruffles, fringe, ruching, animal print, and color blocking. She brought back some old favorites with a few updates and is tantalizing us with a few new ones. Monif’s swimwear fits sizes 12 to 24. My favorite pieces are:

The Plus Size Bikini Swimsuit

The pieces are sold in separates so if you want to wear animal on top and bottom you can or if you want to wear animal on top and black on the bottom you can do that too. Or black on top and blue on bottom — the joy of mixing and matching bikini bottoms.

The Plus Size One Piece Swimsuit

I love the bright pink fringe last year so it is not surprising that the teal would be one of my favorites this year. If a designer puts ruching on their clothing chances are I am going to love it. And of course there is the feminine ruffle.

Swimwear Trends for Summer

It is warming up here and all I can think about is wearing less and keeping cool. If you are too then Always For Me is right up your alley with their beautiful line of plus size swimwear and resort wear. Always for Me dresses curves size 16W to 26W and they truly have the best designer swimwear for plus size bodies available.

Animal Prints

They were popular this winter and they show no sign of dying off for the summer. If you want to live on the wild side then check out Always For Me’s Serpent 1-Piece Bandeau Underwire Swimsuit for $59. I love the teal and black print on this swimsuit which was recently featured in Plus Model Magazine.

They are feminine, they are camouflaging and they are fun. If ruffles are your thing this summer then step into Always For Me’s Zadar Ruffle Plus Size Tankini with briefs for $59. This pretty swimsuit comes in three color options.

There is something to be said for the security and function of solid colored swimsuits. They can be matched with pretty much any cover up, wrap, or towel. One of my absolute favorites for a few years now is the Twist Front Bandeau bathing suit. This retro looking swimsuit is so figure flattering with the ruching (love ruching) and comes in one piece ($79) or two ($89). There are seven color choices to choose from.

Summer is just not summer without a little floral print and Always for Me has you covered with the hottest floral print from their Chic line — Salinas ($89). I love the blue but it also comes in fuchsia.

This summer Always for Me started carrying Monif C’s extravagant bikini. Do not worry, it is not itsy bitty, it has a comfortable full brief and a full support top so you do not feel like you are hanging out in the wrong places. It comes in classic black or animal print ($148).
