Swimsuit season is in full effect, which means all the string bikinis, sandals, and daylong beach trips your heart can desire and you’re SPF can handle. Getting to the pool, beach, or wherever you’re heading to is the easy part, but shopping for the perfect suit is a little bit more complicated.
There’s a multitude of swimwear styles out there, but we all have different levels of comfort. Whether you’re into a barely-there, controversial bikini trend or like to be a little more modest, shopping for swimwear proves even more difficult when curves enter the equation. Let’s be honest: A lot of swimwear brands wrongly don’t design their suits with voluptuous bodies in mind, so if you’re curvy, like me, you learn to keep a discerning eye on which brands will fit the bill. After some thorough research (aka revisiting a few of my favorite curvy influencers) and a little bit of swimwear shopping for myself, I’ve found a collection of stunning swimsuits that are Hot Girl Summer (and curvy girl) approved. Trust me—you’ll want to get your hands on these.
