At this point in time, Swimsuits for All has become a dominant player in the plus size bathing suit game. Their styles run from risque to “everyday swim friendly” and they offer both straight and plus sizes. With celeb collections like Ashley Graham, Gabbi Fresh and Robin Lawley, there are tons of choices for every swim-style and budget. How do you chose? Pick what speaks to you! Here are three suits I recently wore from Swimsuits for All. Note that I am currently between a size 20 and 22 and stand 5 foot 4.
Classic & Retro Glam: Swimsuits for All Crossover Swimsuit

This swimsuit screams vintage glam. At the same time, it’s super-wearable and will be accessible for a variety of body types. In pictures, I have chosen to wear the straps off the shoulder, but you don’t have to do that. While I grabbed the suit in bright Geranium red, it also comes in a variety of other colors which are all equally beautiful. This suit runs true to size!
And here are a few snaps of me wearing the same suit!
So the other day I asked you to help me pick out a red bathing suit from @swimsuitsforall. The one we all voted on– you guys literally bought it and it sold out over night. LOL. So I picked this as an alternative. Moment of honesty. You’ve seen more of me in bathing suits this last two months then ever in my social media life. I tend to like things that have a more boho style… but when I saw this, I LOVED it. But this is the FIRST time I have ever put a suit on and literally said out loud, “girl this looks good on you.” I know that sounds silly. But just hang with me for a moment. This suit actually felt like it was made for my body. Again, I tend to be drawn to things that have a diff style profile. This is a heck of a lot more glam than I have ever worn. Its kinda retro glam, which isnt a look I usually do… but, my oh my, when I pulled it up, it felt good before I even saw it!!! We all deserve that feeling. Thats a good feeling. This is a size 22 FYI. I’ll be wearing it in Florida with some big sunglasses on. LOL. Edit to add… I will be channeling my inner Sophia Loren in this. Haha.
You can also snag it in this print here.
Here are two snaps of me wearing this suit in a size 22.
Boho & Surprisingly Wearable Bikini: The Charlatan Bikini
Shop it online here.
I picked this bikini because I wanted one that was a bit more daring without being too much for me to feel comfortable actually wearing. I ended up really loving this suit. The bottom is a mid-low rise, so it doesn’t offer a ton of stomach coverage if that is what you are looking for, but it doesn’t feel too revealing. Also, it would totally be actually beach and swim-friendly in real life. Which bikinis sometimes aren’t… The top has moderate support. In truth, I think I needed to size down in the top only. I am wearing a 22 in both the top and the bottom. What I LOVE about this suit is the sweet crochet detail and high neckline. Both of which make this suit unexpectedly sexy to me!
Here is AG wearing the suit.
And here are two snaps from July of me wearing the suit in the pool at my apartment!
I believe this suit also comes in white!

Unfortunately, this swimsuit is almost all sold out. Booo. It is so, so beautiful! I hope they consider bringing it back again! While most of AGs suits for Swimsuits for All run small, this one felt pretty true to size.
Here is Ashley wearing it.
And here I am. Note that I wore the straps uncrossed!
