Swimming season is just around the corner, and there can be no greater source of stress than trying to find the perfect swimsuit. For the plus sized woman, it can be especially difficult to find the right swimsuit that is flattering and provides good coverage and support. Many major swim suit designers have larger sizes, but they are often just larger versions of swimsuits that were designed around a size six fit model. Fortunately, there are also designers that specialize in swimsuits for the fuller figure.

Delta Burke Swimwear is part of the very successful Delta Burke Clothing line. The collection includes a black and white one piece swim suit with built in soft cup bra, tummy control and a mesh pattern across the top of the suit. The suit also features a high neck designed to minimize a large bust. There is also a two piece skirted suit that features an identical stripe and mesh design. If you are looking to leave black behind, the Nile Two Piece Skirtini Swim Suit comes in your choice of a navy blue skirt with a blue and lavender floral tank or a black skirt with a red and burgandy floral tank.

The Coral Beach Two Piece Tankini from Your Best Look features a soft molded up shelf bra, a tummy control lining, double straps and a high waisted bikini bottom. The suit also comes with a matching sarong that echoes the suit’s coral floral design with sand and ivory accents. Also from Your Best Look is the Floral Panel One Piece Swimsuit. The suit features a black and white floral centre inset with slimming black side panels. A soft molded cup shelf bra and side wires provide extra support. The swimsuit comes with a matching sheer cover up.

This year’s Sahara Club is bright and feminine with no black or navy in sight. The Pink Passion One Piece Sarong Front Swimsuit is pretty and flattering with pink, coral and red accents and a low back. The front mesh control panel and sarong front tames the tummy and camouflages flaws. The Pink Passion design is also featured in a two piece double strapped tankini with a red, high waisted bottom.
