How to Choose Perfect Fitting Chlorine Resist Plus Size Swimwear

Buying swimwear for a holiday or for exercise can be a daunting task especially if you are not a perfect size 10!  The trick is to enhance your assets and get body confident!  Here at SeaJewels we understand the dilemma as we are all real women with different body shapes so we will always test our plus size swimwear styles on staff to ensure a perfect fit!  Here are a few common plus size swimwear questions



How Do I Choose a Plus Size Swimsuit for a Pear Shape?

  • The typical pear shape body is larger through the bottom, hips and thighs.  Waist and bust size is proportionately smaller so this can be a difficult shape to get the perfect fit. 
  • We recommend to mix and match plus size swimwear separate tops and bottoms. 
  • Try a firmer fit tankini top and team with an A line skort or wrap skirt that will cinch in the waist and skim the hips and thighs.
  • Board shorts are also a great option for a pear shape.  Go for our mid length board short as it has an elasticated waist.

What Plus Size Swimsuit Style Should I Choose For a Full Bust?

  • Our signature 3 piece swimsuit is the solution.  The underwire bikini bra supports the bust and the looser fitting tops that are worn over the bra will help to take away that self conscious feel. 
  • The gathered top is part of the 3 piece swimsuit and is the perfect style to wear over the bra as the wide strap covers the bra and the front ruching is slimming for the torso.
  •  A bit of cleavage is fantastic if you have the confidence.
  • Team with roll top pants or briefs for custom fitting plus size swimwear.

  • Go for an A line shape that will skim the hips and thighs.
