Plus Size Bikinis
So what is a plus size bikini, from our stand point there is no such thing and that’s a good thing for today’s women. Take for example Kate Upton. Kate is 5’11 with 36-25-34 measurements and is not a small girl by any means but she has over 430,000 followers on twitter. Kate has graced the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition for 2012 and just took the front cover of Vogue. Not bad for a girl that experts estimate runs between 148 to 158 pounds.

Compliments of CNN, Kate Upton is holding the 2012 Sports Illustrade Swimwear edition where Kate is the cover model
What about Brooklyn Decker, Brooklyn is another absolutely stunning swimwear model. She is 5’6, measuring 34C-25-34 and weighs between 125 and 130 pounds. We don’t see
Brooklyn starving herself either.
These women are on the covers of the biggest most popular magazines, not on the cover of self-serving catalogs.
For those women that don’t mind us mentioning this, men are buying these magazines because these women are absolutely stunning. These are large healthy women showing off there figures, they are not skinny unhealthy women that have starved themselves, these are real women with real bodies.
We could go on and on with a list of stunning bikini models that could be considered in the plus size category. The world is tired of seeing women who have hopelessly skinny figures acquired by starving themselves walking down runways in bikinis showing off there twiggy legs and rib cages by companies that for the sake of this article will go unmentioned and setting unrealistic unattainable and for the most part un attractive figures.
The one key thing that women need to understand is that size is not the issue; it’s simply taking care of yourself, eating healthy “not starving” and regular exercise.
To get back to the original point of this article, it’s not about buying a plus size bikini or swimsuit; it is simply about buying the right bikini or swimsuit to match your figure. There is no reason why a woman that weighs 150 or 160 pounds plus cannot wear a bikini.
So we are going to list a few key points on purchasing bikinis for larger women and we are not going to mention bikini size because there is no need.
1) Your goal is balance, if you want your bikini to look good; you want to balance out your figure and don’t think for a minute when sports illustrated designers are choosing a bikini
for Kate Upton that this is not the foremost thing on their mind. If you have a larger bust than hip area, you want to choose a bikini top that will slenderise your bust line but choose a bikini bottom that will give the appearance of a wider hip area. No matter what decade it is, it has always been about the hour glass figure and balance, not about size.
2) If you are short and thick, your perfect choice is a high thigh type bikini. This bikini bottom will elongate your torso giving a slimmer smoother appearance. Balancing things out is the key.
3) If your hips are larger than your bust, choose a high thigh Brazilian style bottom and an underwire or ruffled top to add size to you top, again it’s all about balance.
4) So stripes, the so called experts say stay away from stripes, then why do swimwear manufactures make bikinis with stripes. The answer is simple, use stripes to your advantage. If you want to achieve a balanced look, stripes can help. If you want to widen your hip area, horizontal stripes or a bikini with a horizontal band will give you the proper effect, if you want to narrow your hip area, use vertical stripes. Use the same theory for your bust when it comes to
stripes. Plus let’s face it if stripes were out than the ever popular 4th of July Patriotic bikinis would not be worth a dime, but they sell like hot cakes.
5) Taller women should choose bikinis that are more square in design to balance out their height to width.
We are not going to make an attempt to cover every body type, I think by this point you have got the idea. Balance, Balance, Balance – Always balance your bikini top to your bikini bottom. This theory is also applicable to one piece swimsuits, tankinis, and thongs. All of these designs come in the so called plus size, but really, there is no plus size.
Final notes: stop fretting, don’t worry, just be happy and live healthy. Apply balance to all areas of your life and you will have start having a lot more fun.
The rules above also apply to underwear and clothing also. It’s that simple.
