Bathing suit shopping is one of my least favorite things to do. To find the one, you have to go through so much work. You end up trying on 10+ suites, when you find the one you love, it’s either too big or too small, so you have to start all over again at a different store. Then you need to multiply that whole ordeal by five…at least that’s what’s it’s like for me.
Bathing suit shopping can be even more of a pain if you are plus-size and/or have a larger bust. I’m a 38 DD and I’m a size 12, so finding the perfect fit with a bathing suit is extremely difficult. Especially on a budget! Thankfully, I have found a few stores over the years that work for me. If you’re plus-size and/or you have a D cup or above, I highly recommend you give these affordable stores a try:
- Swimsuits for All
- Old Navy
- ASOS Curve
- Forever 21+
It’s also the end of the summer, so many companies have their swimwear on-sale. Woot!! Take advantage of those sales, girl.
Want to see some of the above suits in action?
The suit I’m wearing below is from Target and I love it! I get compliments every time I wear it. Here is the thing about this suit…it’s not the one I ordered. Target messed up my order. Since the order didn’t arrive until the day before my vacation, I had to deal with it. Now it’s my favorite suit, so I guess it was meant to be.
Crochet Swimsuit: $39.99 via Target
This is another Target swimsuit. It’s perfect for my larger bust and I feel very comfortable in it.
Plunge One Piece Swimsuit: $39 via Target
The suit below is from the Gabi Fresh x Swimsuits for All collection. Since it was from last year’s collection, I got it for only $18. Woot!
This is another suit from Target (can you tell I like Target?!). I usually wear this suit when I want to avoid tan lines. There is little to no support, but this suit comes with removable straps if you need it/don’t care about tan lines. Target no longer sells this exact suit, but this one is very similar.
