Summer’s sexiest plus-size swimsuits

Calling all bodacious babes: Summer’s here, and the time is right to cover your bewitching bod in swimwear made to flaunt what you’ve got. Now, get out in the sun, hon, and celebrate your sexy self. — Shannon McCarthy
Bing | Torrid zebra bandeau halter
Taming two trends at once – animal print and black-and-white – this swimsuit from Torrid is definitely fashion-forward. It’s also utterly sexy, with a provocative peek-a-boo provided by the solid black bandeau top built into the adjustable halter bodice. Faux-wrap construction sleeks your midsection, and moderate leg openings lengthen gams.
Swim Sexy black cut-out maillot
Who knew air-conditioning could be so hot? Swim Sexy takes a basic tank suit and nails the monokini trend via side cut-outs for a little southern exposure. The dark hue balances bareness with sleek sophistication, while a soft cup bra and optional halter strap support.

Neons are a sizzling summer swimwear trend, and GabiFresh knows plus-size figures can righteously rock these shocking hues. Try their little pink two-piece: With a gathered sweetheart halter top that further enhances an ample bustline, and a softly pleated bottom for flattery, this is one bodacious bikini.
Elomi Isis swim bras

Many women’s top and bottom sizes differ, so swim separates frequently fit better than bikini sets. Elomi, known for its full-figure lingerie line, makes some of the best-fitting swim tops. The Isis is offered in precise bra sizes, comes in both bandeau and strapped styles, and sports a sexy retro look besides.
Torrid side-cinch bikini bottoms
Torrid designs swimwear for plus-size femmes of the “if you’ve got it, flaunt it” school, and its offerings skew young, hip and uber-cool. Its side-cinch swim bottoms offer high-cut leg openings, curvy bottom coverage – but shaped to show off that booty, not hide it – sexy hip shirring, plus trendy side ties.
House of LaRoux mesh swimsuits
The mesh swimwear on offer from House of LaRoux – “full figured designs from a full figured designer” – is so gorgeously glam that we couldn’t pick just one suit. Whichever concoction you choose will out-luxe everybody at the pool and look great with an elegant pareo, blingy jewelry and high heels for the evening ahead.
Forever 21 abstract halter swimsuit
Like a bird of paradise, the beautifully hued design on this halter-style suit entrances. It’s sexy without being obvious about its intentions, and youthfully trendy yet elegantly abstract enough for plus-size women of all ages to wear. Side boning and lightly padded cups are ideal for the fuller-busted.
Monif C. Sao Paulo plus-size leopard bikini
Ferociously sexy, this is the bikini to flaunt when you’re feeling extra flirty. It roars with on-trend leopard print, caresses curves with a high-waisted brief, and offers an underwire bodice featuring wide halter straps and an adjustable hook-and-eye closure for a more custom fit.
Isla Vista plus-size lace tankini top
Amid all the diva dazzle of more overtly sexy plus-size swimsuits, there’s always room for a bit of understated sensuality, and that’s just what the Isla Vista from Land’s End provides. Ladylike lace pairs with curve-hugging fabric and a low-cut, cleavage-baring bodice for subtle summer sizzle.
Monif C. Maldives illusion swimsuit
The ravishing combo of a nude lining and sheer black mesh overlay on this stunning creation from Monif C. seems absolutely tailor-made to show off the divine curves and contours of a fuller figure. Add the long pour of a luxe maxi skirt and you’ve got yourself an evening gown.
