Swimmers (yeah, have you got your SWIMSUIT BODY)

Its that time of year where all the magazines seem to have articles about swimsuits for every size. But, seriously, it’s swimsuits for every size up to size 16. It seems like the actual outfit of anyone of a larger size at my local pool is a one piece with a pair of boardshorts with a one piece swimsuits.

My choice was a polka dot swimmers from Kmart. They look very much like this this pair from asos but go up to a size 18 and cost $19.

If you are a bit shyer about your thighs and just want a splash around this is nice and goes up to a size 30 – available from

For some Aussie brand Sue Rice are cute and go up to size 24. Yet, the corset fit kind of worries me. RELAX in your swimmers. BREATHE.

This is my current lemming from Kiyonna, a convertible swimsuit. I want this so bad for summer. Its available in a few colours, up to size 32 and $140 ish. Num num num.

So, yes. You have your swim suit body. It’s your body. Dunk it. Cool down. Enjoy yourself and be in your body rather than outside judging.

Oh and the final option, in the privacy of your own home or appropriate zoned swimming area is chunky dunking (thats skinny dipping for fats :) )

    Has anyone seen Monif C’s new swimsuit collection?  OMG!  Hot hot hotness!  Also, swimsuits for all have a nice selection of sizes.

    Yay swimsuits! (Or togs, as we call them in Queensland). I’ve just purchased a new one piece from Swimsuits For All – even with postage it was so much cheaper than most swimwear in Australia, and there is a lot more variety available.
    The Kiyonna convertible swimsuit is available from for $132, and I think that includes postage (I’ve never ordered from them, though I’ve heard lots of good things!) They also have the Monif C frilled one piece on deep discount… I want it!

    (Where is the swimdress from? I didn’t see a link or a store name).

    City Chic and Autograph also have some nice swimmers available.

    Modcloth sells plus size swimmers up to a size 24. They are gorgeous retro styling suits in a variety of colours and they also do plus size bikinis. For sizing reference,  I wear an 18 in Australia but I purchased a 16 from the site.
