Print Tanksuit

Although it looks like two pieces, the Print Tanksuit is actually one piece. It features a ruffled skirt, tie on one side, scoop neck, thick straps, mesh lining, and molded soft cups. We love the giraffe print which makes it sexy and fun.

If this is you, you may be looking for a cover up to take on your trip. We love the Tie Dyed Cover Up. Black and white is one of our favorite color combinations, and tie dye is still quite popular. There is rucing at the elasticized empire waist, deep V-neck, and sort sleeves. It hangs at about 37 inches in length.

Say You Actually Needed to Swim...

SwimWildNight.jpg If you wear a size 16-34W, you may find that a lot of swimsuits available in plus sizes are more ornamental than functional. However, if you want to swim laps, take a water aerobics class or engage in any kind of water sport, you'll need a suit that is sleek and stays put. I went looking for just such a suit and found plenty like this one at This suit has a keyhole back, hits at the natural crease of the leg and fits up to D bra cup sizes. If this one is not really your fav, then take a look at the nice selection of other plus size swimsuits that are available.
