The fashion industry has made shopping for swimsuits a difficult and frustrating experience.Most stores carry sizes that are too small for the average shopper, and usually do not offer a range of options in terms of coverage in their swimwear. Although many stores have caught on to the fact that more women than not are ‘plus-size’ finding the ‘right fit’ is still a challenge, especially at affordable prices. To make things worse, this challenge is especially frustrating when it comes to shopping in traditional department stores that carry a limited selection for a short period of the year.
While these sentiments are true for the average woman, it can be especially difficult for mothers. The reality of biology is that having children will change things physically, emotionally, and financially! If you are planning a spring getaway or are just suiting up for the summer, spending hundreds on swimwear may no longer be a viable option for your style or your wallet. However, there is no reason not to embrace the change and bring sexy back!
There are now online retailers that specialize in just about everything, and ‘plus sized’ swimwear is certainly one of them. Such retailers have a significant advantage over regular department stores. Shopping from the comfort of a couch, in front of the TV, with a cup of coffee/tea can be a very rewarding experience in itself, plus with a little one running around, who has time to go to a department store and hunt for options (plus managing your little one in a change room isn’t fun). Moreover, department stores don’t have a lot of options in terms of style or size. Shopping online allows consumers to narrow their search to find only the items in which they’re interested. Lastly, online shops make returns much easier than physically going to the store or mall. In many cases, the retailer will offer free return shipping in exchange for store credit. This makes finding the swimsuit a breeze, and affordable.
There are many swimsuit styles available on the market (especially online) that didn’t use to exist. One-pieces are now stylish and form flattering, available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Tankinis are an especially hot new trend, offering coverage and flexibility while playing up your features and downplaying problem areas. This swimsuit style offers coverage without sacrificing fashion. It is similar to a camisole tank top with a fitted bust and empire waist. This style is excellent for quick vacation swimsuit shopping because it isn’t too revealing while remaining in-season, making it a flattering and trendy swimsuit for any occasion and the plus-size body type.
Shopping for swimsuits online hasn’t always been as easy as it is today. And since the invention of the tankini, choosing the right swimsuit style has never been simpler, more affordable, or more flattering. Purchasing from a standard department store is, and will always be, a hassle. With holidays and vacations right around every corner, make swimwear shopping a no brainer by going online. There is one company in particular that has gained a lot of attention not only for their swimwear options, but also for their efforts to change society’s view of sex appeal and form.
