Personal stylist Claire Wacey joined us in our Perfect Plus Size Swimwear Week today to share some tips on how to choose flattering plus size swimwear.

The really important things to keep in mind when choosing swimwear is your body shape: you need to dress your body shape correctly when choosing your swimsuit, in order to show off your best assets, and disguise any areas of your body you want to hide.

The first style Claire showcases is a halter neck swimsuit, which can also be worn as a normal strap style, as well as strapless. The intricate pattern this particular style has makes is perfect for plus size women, as it helps elongate the body, and helps disguise the tummy area.

The second style Claire displays is a gorgeous red halter neck style which give you lots of support for your bust, but also features ruching detail which helps again to elongate the body, making you look taller and leaner.

Another option is a swimsuit style which features ruching detail all along the tummy area – this again helps disguise a bigger tummy, but also flatters the thighs. It comes in another lovely vibrant color, and Claire definitely recommends going for fun bright colors when choosing your swimsuit for the Summer season.

As for bikinis, Claire suggest going for a style with a higher bottom part, such as the Capri High-Waisted Bikini by Monif C. The high waist gives you the necessary support, but also enables you to pull it down slightly when you’re lying down on your sunbed sunbathing. As for the top part, ensure the bikini top is underwired.
