Why, oh, why, does every swimsuit over size 20 have a 'skirt'?! (RANT)

How about the new line of swimsuits that Gabifresh just put out?

Kudos to even wearing a bathing suit.. I’m a size 20, and I haven’t worn a bathingsuit/gone swimming in over 8 years 🙁 

Lane Bryant has nice swimsuits without skirts (they have one with skirts too, eww, lol)

@Sweet_Tea:  Have you tried Kohl’s? Admittedly, their swimsuit section is pretty small in each store, but I managed to find a size 18 tankini set that I loved. Actually, they’re two different brands with colors that happened to go together.

@Sweet_Tea:  Macy’s or Bloomingdales….miraclesuit or Ralph lauren plus

I used to be an 18-20 and I never bought inexpensive bathing suits. I find the bettet brands have good fabric and better coverage.

@Sweet_Tea:  Sounds like someone needs to check out http://wtfplus.tumblr.com/ !!!

It’s not just swimsuits. Practically all plus size clothing is either a bizarrely colored shapeless sack or proportioned crazily or leopard print…. that blog is freaking awesome if you’re beyond sick of the way designers, manufacturers, and advertisers treat plus size women.

Also seconding the swimsuitsforall reccomendation. If you want a legit bikini they have them under the “collections” tab. 😀
