Let’s face it—even in 2016, swimsuits or beachwear options for plus-sizes are few and far in between. But luckily, there are a few designers and brands that are willing to show that plus-sized women too, can pull off some super cute looks at the poolside or at the beach.

Here’s your go-to list of brands and designers who do plus-sized swimsuits and beachwear.

The Yellow Hanger

Looking for cute plus-sized beachwear that is trendy as well as flattering for your shape? The Yellow Hanger is your go-to website. They offer gorgeous-looking kimonos than can be worn over your bikinis, trikinis, and maillots. They make bright, solid, breezy kaftans that are cinched at the waist, fringed ones that tease at the thighs, those with embellished necklines that draw attention to the neck and the upper waist, and also ones with prints that are a great alternative to the otherwise boring robe.

Suman Nathwani

There are always two things to keep in mind while you are buying your swimsuit: Comfort and style—and Suman Nathwani makes sure that you have no reason to give up one to have the other. She designs swimsuits according to your body type. For instance, if the upper part of your body is narrow, she might suggest a one-shoulder or an off-shoulder swim suit for you. She says you can very well go beyond the frock-style and wearing-cycling shorts-under-your-swimsuit trend.

Rohini Gugnani

If you are all about the two-pieces when it comes to bathing suits, Rohini Gugnani is the person to contact. She is a pro at giving you the perfect bikini that doesn’t make you feel like anything is spilling out. She suggests you pair a bold bikini with a high-waist brief. Your bikini should have extra support of the underwire as it helps to accentuate your shape. “You can also pair a crop top with your briefs,” says Gugnani.
