Maybe in a magazine if we are fortunate.

And when we watch television or go to the movies to watch beautiful women, among other things, what do we want to see?

Gorgeous girls in sexy beach wear. Then later we’ll follow the movie’s story too.

Now what do these beautiful girls typically look like? Let’s find out by watching television.

The Best Beachwear For Curvy Women – Swimwear, Kaftans & Coverups to Look Fabulous In

By Anita McLachlan 

Curves may seem unmanageable at times but the upside is they create a waist and that makes you the envy of all other women! This cheat sheet of the perfect women’s swimwear, kaftans and coverups will have you looking your fabulous best.

Remember, curvy doesn’t necessarily mean ‘fuller figure’. You can be a size 10 with curves! It’s all about SHAPE not size!

At the beach, here’s how to turn heads with your curvy shape:


*Fuller busts need support. As with your bras, make sure you get those assets ‘up and out’. Your figure will look amazing as your stunning waist is revealed! Look for under-wire, supportive shelf bras and wider straps for comfort.

*The One Piece: Bring that waist in even more to accentuate your gorgeous curves with the help of a little ‘power netting’. A slightly higher leg will also lengthen your legs and distract from lumpy thighs. Look for a lovely, sexy ‘V’ neck or low wide scoop neckline. Remember the higher the neckline, the more you’ll look like a walking block…hardly flattering and so unfortunate when you have so much to give!

*Tankinis: are another great option as they are a Two Piece posing as a One Piece. Great for girls who love the flexibility of a two piece, once loved themselves in a bikini but just don’t have the confidence to go there anymore. A Cross-over style with it’s diagonal lines and detail, nips in a waist beautifully. A great trick for One Piece bathers too.

*A Bikini: is fabulous to show off those beautiful curves as long as you love your tummy. Again, a supportive bust is crucial and a pant that sits on/slightly above the hip with a higher leg is the best option. Please leave those boy legs alone! They’re for the sporty types with no hips!

Kaftans and Coverups:

*Anything that nips in at your waist of course! Look for something that is darted at the back and bust or cut on the bias. Just make sure a bias cut doesn’t cut off circulation to your hips! Skim not cling is what you’re after.

*A lovely open neckline: just as you need to for swimwear, look to break up your bust and stop it from looking ‘blocky’ with a deep ‘V’ or wide low scoop. A neckline that can be tied up or let loose is perfect. A girl’s got to have options.

*To the knee: if your thighs bother you…but really, only if they bother you otherwise, let them breathe.

*Prints: a ’round’ print will work best. The general rule is…if you have curves then rounded shapes will suit you. That applies to everything you wear from handbags, clutches, shoes (rounded toes better on you than pointy ones) and jewelry. The bigger you are, look for a bigger print…it’s a proportion thing.

Fit is king! When buying your beachwear online that can be a challenge. Always check the Size & Fit guides. Measure and make sure the fit is for you. Any great website will have these tips. If not, consider moving on.

Now, celebrate those curves and go get ’em girl! Step out in confidence and live your best summer!
