Swimsuit shopping can be a headache, especially if you’re looking for a two-piece and your entire body is expected to fit into one size. Very few women are perfectly proportionate (if you are, I am extremely jealous), hence all the conversations about different body shapes.
But at the end of the day, almost no woman’s top is the same size as her bottom. Though one-piece swimsuits are lovely and modest, you’ll often end up with a suit that fits perfectly along your bust but is too small for your butt, or visa versa. That’s why a plus size bikini is ideal — you can buy different sizes and styles for your top and bottom, so you know you’re getting a custom fit suit that hugs and flatters all your curves.
Whether you plan on hitting the beach, local pool, or just a backyard inflatable, scroll down for plus size bikinis you can mix and match to find the best fit for your bod.

Starting at $70.50, Macys
The exotic vibe of this bikini will make you feel like you’re sipping Mai Tais at a Mexican cabana (even if you’re really just getting some sun on the back porch). Unlike standard horizontal stripes, the zebra print design finds a way to beautifully outline all your curves without making you look wide. The faux belt trims your waist at its smallest spot, which is flattering for all tummies.
Starting at $36, Venus

One reviewer wrote, “Nice looking top … Unique looking. The mesh helps cover up if there is too much cleavage.”
Starting at $78, Swimsuits For All
Swimsuits for All lets you choose different sizes for tops and bottoms, so you won’t have to worry about the fit. With a built-in underwire molded bra, side boning, fully detachable and adjustable straps, a double keyhole back, and a fully-lined “Power Mesh” tummy-control front panel brief, you’ll be texting your friends selfies the moment it arrives in the mail.
One reviewer wrote, “I love this suit, great support and true to size. I bought a size larger bottom and turned out to be too big but the customer service was fantastic, new bottoms on the way! Whatever size you really are, buy that size and you will be very happy with this suit. As a 60-year-old grandmother I rock this suit.”
