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.

After the holiday season is over, many of us begin to dream about a trip somewhere warm to get away from the cold. 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.

I have had a pareo wrap like this one for years, and I absolutely love it.

It's mesh fabric dries quickly and keeps you modestly dressed when the situation calls for it. Available in 5 solid colors to coordinate with your favorite swimsuits.

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 swimsuitsforall.com. 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.
