The Curvy Girl's Guide to Cute Swimwear

Posted on July 08 2015

It is the height of summer- which means it is time to bare some skin and enjoy time on the beach or poolside. Summer is about jumping in, having adventures, and participating. It is not about covering up, staying inside, or hiding away from all of the swimsuit-required events. While some of us are ready to dive right in, the rest of us are just getting our feet wet, and easing in slowly. Whether you're the type who is cannonballing or hiding beneath your towel, we have the suit for you.

The Play-It-Safe Girl:

The Play-It-Safe Girl likes to wear black (always chic, always flattering), likes to feel secure in her clothing (no popping out!), and is most concerned with feeling comfortable. Her style is practical and classic.

The beauty of the Scuba Suit One Piece is in the versatility. Zip it all the way up for coverage, and unzip as much you want when you are feeling daring. The zipper and the paneling make for an extremely flattering silhouette. The sleeves are excellent sunburn protection and make this suit a bit of a fashion piece.

This bestselling swimsuit is such a no-brainer. The paneling with pleating makes for an extremely flattering shape- creating a beautiful waistline. The underwire support not only holds you in place perfectly, but it makes for a pretty and feminine silhouette. It even has adjustable straps! No wonder everyone wants it.

Not quite all-black, the Rough Diamond Scuba One Piece is the perfect marriage of utility and fashion. The black paneling creates a gorgeous shape, but the edgy print is eye-catching and unique. With a zipper down the front, you can show as much or as little as you want. This suit has a super open back- but it does not compromise the fit. With a bra-like closure and adjustable straps, you can be sure that this suit is staying in place. It also comes in super sleek black and white. Not to mention, there is also a cover up in a matching print!

The Jump-On-In Girl:

The Jump-On-In Girl is not afraid of getting wet, dunking her friends, and splashing in the waves. Her style is as fun as her personality, she likes colors and prints but needs her suit to stay in place while she makes a splash.


Worn by our intern Ashby, a true jump-on-in girl, in a previous blog post- the Palm D'Or One Piece is as flattering as it is cute. The black paneling on the sides creates a streamlined silhouette while the print with the palm in the center makes for an hourglass shape. The removable, adjustable strap and the zipper down the front let you decide just how much to show. A happy print in a classic silhouette- now that's a timeless swimsuit.

Perfect for the adventurous girl, the Lost Road swimsuit has a digital graphic of a road leading through mountains of blue and pink. The back of the swimsuit keeps the design alive with more mountains and power lines. A classic one piece silhouette with a deep scoop in the back lets this unique swimsuit be an easy piece for jumping in and out of the pool. The faint of heart may stray away, scared of wearing a white swimsuit, but the adventurous swimmer will jump on it.

A fun loving print in classic black and white make this Carmakoma swimsuit so special. Like the Palm D'Or swimsuit by Robyn Lawley, this swimsuit has flattering black panels along the side. Unlike the Robyn Lawley swimsuits, this suit has a lower rise in the leg, making for a bit more coverage. The back of the swimsuit shows off a T-strap design. Zip it up or down, show a lot or a little.


The Lay-Out-In-Style Girl:

The Lay-Out-In-Style Girl is the girl who's hair is somehow always dry. She probably has a great tan and a magazine in hand, and she might only stick her feet in the water. She's all about fashion and less so about swimming. 

The Bisous Sweetheart One Piece is a stunning head turner. With mirrored digital prints of tropical florals and bright red lips, this white swimsuit is as daring as a one piece can get. A bra-like clasp in the back, underwire, and adjustable straps make this suit a practical fashion piece for the "it" girl with brains.

The Gothic Rose Peep Hole Bikini is for those who love bikinis and those willing to give them a try. Featuring a super trendy top with a high neckline and a peep hole cut out, this swimsuit is more than Instagram-worthy. The bottoms are adjustable, wear them high or low-waisted. This swimsuit lets you show some chest and some midriff while you soak up the rays.

This gorgeous bikini has been worn by supermodel Robyn Lawley herself in Sports Illustrated's 2015 Swim Edition.  Featuring a gorgeous sunset palm motif and a top with double, adjustable straps, underwire, and trendy paneling. Feel like a total supermodel in this stunning swimsuit.
