All this month, we’re featuring the summer’s most ubiquitous staple: The bathing suit. From how-to tips and expert advice, to shopping guides packed with the season’s chicest styles, we’re committed to lessening the innate stress that all women face when it comes time to debut our bathing suit bodies. While we’re all for embracing what you’ve got and rocking it, we probably all could benefit from a few useful tricks designed to help us consistently look our absolute best, which is what you’ll get right here. Happy summer! 

Let’s face it: Bathing suit shopping can be a bit of a headache. Not all swimsuits are designed for all bodies, so it takes a little time to find the perfect—and most flattering—style. If you’re blessed with curves for days, it can be extra-difficult to find the right bathing suit, since so many on shelves today are geared toward that tiny percentile of women with seemingly perfect bodies.

We’ve been pretty invested in writing about sly tricks can make women look thinner in a bathing suit—including choosing styles with deep V-necks, halter straps, and strategic ruching—but most plus-size women also want to look modern and stylish in swimwear, as well. Luckily, we’ve hunted down 14 flattering and stylish bathing suits for curvy girls to wear all summer.
