As summer slowly fades away (*cries*), you may feel like shopping for a new swimsuit to make the most of the last sunny weeks we have left.
We rounded up ten brands that not only make amazing suits, but do it with a focus on body positivity and size inclusion. Thanks to much-needed improvements in the industry, and the realization that “beach bodies” are just bodies on the beach (duh), it wasn’t too much of a challenge to find cute suits that run up to a size 28.
What we did find challenging was sourcing adaptive swimwear, made for people with physical disabilities who might face difficulties putting on a conventional suit, or even finding one that fits their body shape. We did manage to source one brand that makes a cute adaptive swimsuit, but this is definitely a corner of the market that needs some serious attention. (Are you listening, swimwear brands?)
Scroll through to check out our picks for this year’s best body-positive swimwear.
The Harlow One-Piece, $85, 437swimwear.com
This Toronto-based line was created by two young women who wanted everyone to feel confident in a bathing suit. Their curve-hugging fabric is universally flattering because it’s supportive but doesn’t dig in to your flesh, and they’ve won fans in celebs like Kylie Jenner and Winnie Harlow (hence the name of this sexy suit).
