    3.4K  Views

    Okay so we know that getting plus size swimwear is tough, and even more so in India. We do not approve of wearing a t-shirt and shorts and swimming. So, we did our best to find brands that are inclusive enough to have swimsuits for those of us who are not size S, M or L. And the best part, these ones don’t even want you to cover up! Got it, flaunt it. From size XXS to 5XL, here is our pick of brands that do all kinds of swimwear for every body shape and size. If you know more, please leave a comment, and we’d love to feature them too! 

    Forever 21

    Forever 21

    Available Online

    You can always count on Forever 21 for something cute, from XXS to XXXL in most of their collection. Even when it comes to swimwear (for lounging by the pool, impromptu photoshoots, and long weekends by the beach), their options are reasonable as they are cute. Triangle bikinis, ruffle bikini tops, single piece swimsuits all come in vibrant colours and cute designs. They have larger sizes starting at XL up to 3XL at the moment.

    H&M

    H&M

    Trust H&M to make swimwear that’s flattering, not too in your face, and inclusive of larger sizes (even if you’re petite or tall!). We honestly prefer their single pisces that come with pretty necklines ranging from plunge, scoop, and options with ruffles and trims. If you want to flaunt your curves they have a high leg (high v-cut), and shaping swimwear too. Sizes go up to 18/XL at the moment. The only trouble we find is figuring out their complicated sizing chart, but if you’ve been shopping with them for a while you’ll find exactly what you need. 

    Zivame

    Zivam’Es swimwear is for those of you who like to keep things simple and functional for your swim. Basically single piece swimsuits. There’s no edge, so don’t go expecting anything outside of the skirt style, shorts style, and the v-style swimsuits in fun, basic designs. So think florals, stripes, and polka dots. Sizes go up to XXL on all pieces. 

    Nykaa

    Nykaa Fashion

    Available Online

    So Nykaa technically doesn’t have its own range of swimwear for anyone but definitely has brands that too. If you’re looking for plus size options there check out Speedo (10 sizes!),  Da Intimo, Clovia, Veloz (for full coverage bodysuit style swimwear in up to seven sizes) among others. 

    Brazillian Bikini

    We’re going to be honest when we say that this isn’t the most pocket friendly option on this list, but the collection at Brazillian Bikini Shop really pops! They have sizes up to UK 20, and all the styles and designs that you associate with a tropical holiday. Vibrant yellows, nautical themed tankinis, plunging neckline monokinis will have you sizzling wherever you go. Their mantra seems to be if you got it, flaunt it! And you can happily buy tops and bottoms separately.

    Marks & Spencer

    Good old Marks & Spencer may not have too much variety, but we like that even their regular sizes go up to at least 18. Then the plus-size section goes up to 26 and 28, with sometimes, a 32 also available. While we’re all for body positivity, if you are still conscious about your tummy rolls or love handles, then they have a tummy control collection that keeps you in shape. The simple tankinis and one-piece solid ones have our hearts for functional swimming, but the printed bikinis are ideal for beach going. 

    Amante

    Amante has XL sizes, so we’re pushing this one down the list as it doesn’t impress in the size variety too much. But the products are really quite lovely, especially the tankini tops and the flouncy ones. We’d recommend pairing the flouncy ones with a bikini bottom for style. Or just go ahead and pick the one piece options. Oh, they even have skirtinis - bikini bottoms with skirts for high coverage and high fashion. 

    Speedo

    Speedo

    Available Online

    Starting with XS going all the way to size 42, Speedo might be functional swimwear, but it certainly is rather inclusive. Be it single piece competitive suits, tankinis, swim dresses, racer backs, solids, prints or even shorts, they have something for everyone. Prices start at an easy enough INR 999 for a plain black suit.

    Hunkemoller

    Without adding any cover ups or making a distinction at all between sizes, we love that Hunkemoller brings all sorts of swimwear - bikinis bottoms, bandeau tops, string bikini tops, one piece, cut outs, and plenty more, from size XS to 5XL. You’ll probably relate to the models in the images because they’re not your usual ones but more size inclusive. Check out the Daze Print High-Waist Bikini Bottom, that is currently our favourite to pair with the same print top. Prices start at INR 600 for bottoms, and up to INR 5000 for crochet swimwear. If you don’t have a Hunkemoller store in your town, check out AJIO for a better selection.
