It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow, polka dot bikini…
This is the year of bikinis for us curvy girls. I do love a good one piece swimsuit but hey – the Age of Aquarius is ending soon and it’s time to switch things up tiny little swimsuits that flatter curvy bodies like mine (and yours, I’m guessing, if you’re reading this post!)
To help you out, I rounded up all the best bikinis for curves this year so you can find the most flattering swimsuits and feel confident AF at the beach or pool.
In my opinion, the best 2 piece swimsuits for curvy gals like myself are the ones that make YOU feel confident and comfy.
For example, if your cup sizes are larger than mine, you probably need an underwire bikini to keep them in and feel sexy. You want to wear swimwear that fits you so feel and supported!
As a size 14, I used to only stick to one pieces and while I still love them (especially for activities like snorkeling when I want my swimsuit to say on when I dive), I’ve been jamming on high waisted bikinis that offer a little bit of tummy control and fit snug on my body.
But, I don’t only stick to high waist bikinis – I firmly believe any size of body can wear any style and look hot. Lately, I’ve been dipping more and more into low cut bikinis and even triangle bikinis (which are tiny tiny tiny!)
I’m writing this post in January but I have some winter trips coming up and summer will be here soon, so I wanted to share all my favorite trendy curvy swimsuits for you to shop this year.
Just remember: you are worthy of taking up space, you deserve to wear any dang bathing suit you want, and you are BEAUTIFUL.
The 14 Most Flattering Bikinis For Curvy Women & Bodies In 2023
I've worn this bikini all over the world and some of my friends even own it. It looks amazing on everyone, but especially if you're looking for the best bathing suit for short curvy body types, you'll love this bikini set! It hugs in all the right places and stays put while doing active things like diving. Plus, it comes in 8 colors!
Not all plus size swimwear needs to look like your grandma wears the same bikini as you. I adore this bold color block swimsuit that's perfect for folks with a large bra size as the cups have an underwire and tons of support! The Cupshe swimwear shop has tons of swimsuits for curvy women in plus sizes, and the site is always having sales!
I think Cupshe makes some of the most flattering swimsuits for curvy gals like me & I really adore this new bikini top with ruffles. The bikini bottoms are made high waist so it's extra comfy, but the pattern is super youthful and fresh. It's my fave bikini of the season!
I'm a sucker for cute little bows! This adorable plus size bikini is best for girls who struggle to find bikinis that fit their band sizes since it's an adjustable tie at the back!
I own this floral print bikini and love the springy vibe to it! It has a scoop neck with self-tie accent, shirred bust, and shoulder straps that lead to a crisscross lace-up back. So fun for spring break!
How hot is this triangle bikini set?! Yes, curvy and fat babes can rock a triangle bikini, too. I would totally wear this poolside on a vacation to Los Angeles or Miami. It looks extra good with a pair of heels and a white cover up (drink in hand!)
I've always wanted a tiny white bikini and love this white one from Cupshe. It has this nice floral jacquard design that's subtle and adds a bit of texture. It holds the girls and looks dang good under mesh cover ups.
Everyone looks good in a classic black bikini but this one has a fun twist as it's crafted with glitter knit material! It also has tons of bum coverage so you can keep it all in as you strut your stuff by the pool looking like a literal star.
This darling set is one of my favorite curve bathing suits since it comes in 3 colors and has such a cute scallop trim on the bust!! It adds just the right bit of personality to the bikini.
Ekk, how cute is this floral pattern?! It's effortlessly sweet and flirty. The high-waisted ruched bottom keeps you secure and the bikini top fits like a dream. It's perfect for spring and summer beach days!
Ok - this halter bikini top is super fire!! It squeezes the girls forward in all the best ways if you get my drift but also means they're in place if you want to go swimming. The high waist is great for tummy control and honestly, this is such a hot bikini for my plus size girls.
This is one of my favorite bikinis that I own! The bandeau bikini top with the smocked material screams picnic by the lake, or maybe July 4th? I love to wear it in the summer through fall. I always get compliments (PS I'm a size 14 but the Large fits best here on me!)
If you're looking for a super tiny bikini, this is it!! I know not all curvy bodies like to wear triangle sets like, this but, I love to see my fellow big girls in something hot like this. This bikini top has a wraparound design, and the bikini bottom features extra cheeky bum coverage.
Can't you picture yourself wearing this cute black floral bikini set in Maui or Mexico? The triangle top and halter neckline offers tons of support while the high waist bottoms are great for tummy control without blocking too much skin so you can still get a tan!
