Fashion editors are doing their annual picks of the best swimsuits for the 2008 season. Not surprisingly, they can’t talk about plus size swimwear without including AlwaysForMe and our assortment of fun and fashion forward bathing suits and cover ups. As one of the leading online retailers of plus size fashions, Always For Me offers beach wear that defies what people think about plus size swimwear with great silhouettes, bright colors and bold prints. Every suit offers contouring and control and is designed to flatter the figure. Like our curvy buyers themselves, our suits are sexy and sophisticated.
The twist front bandeau featured this year in Seventeen and Oprah (in the swim mini version), and last year in People Style Watch, is an editor’s favorite. And no wonder! This swimwear wardrobe basic offers classic styling, figure whittling details, and comes in a range of solid colors: black, turquoise, coral, and a sophisticated brown. Plus, this swim suit also comes in a variety of prints that add variety to any swimwear collection. Each twist front bandeau has a control panel in front that provides contouring and support. The gathering of material across the bust draws the eye toward your center creating a narrower silhouette. In addition, this one piece offers a removable strap allows for seamless tanning -- or creates a comfortable and sexy top for warm evenings. Pair it with one of our cover-up skirts for a complete après sun look!
TWIST FRONT BANDEAU
The twist front bandeau one piece is a plus size swimsuit wardrobe basic! It offers classic shaping that Seventeen magazine called the “cutest one piece made just for plus sizes!” Now this get-one-in-every-color style is available in a selection of eye-catching and figure flattering patterns and prints.
“Too often curvy women shy away from patterns and prints in larger sized swimwear”, says AlwaysForMe.com founder, Susan Barone. “But with careful construction and the know-how to fool the eye and flatter the figure, we’ve found our patterned swim suits to be among our most popular.”
WHY IS THE TWIST FRONT BANDEAU A BEST SELLER?
Whether patterned or solid, the twist front bandeau drapes beautifully over the bust line with a gathering of fabric that draws the eye in. A soft cup bra, extra mesh on the sides, and a removable strap add support and lift. Shirring along the bust and sides are wonderful illusion makers, creating a slimmer silhouette and drawing the eye toward center for a narrower look. Better still, there is full tummy control in this one piece swimsuit.
MAKING PATTERNS AND PRINTS WORK FOR YOU
A small and repeating pattern keeps the eye moving and a vertically oriented pattern will help to elongate the curvy body. The Kingston (style #78453WA) bathing suit with its small and all around geometric pattern comes in a rich brown or light turquoise. It offers the twist front that flatters the face and a pattern front and back with just the right amount of white to lighten the look. This plus size swimsuit can be worn strapless for sexier look.
Other patterns that are hot this year are animal and reptile prints. Check out the snakeskin pattern (style #67024W) on this twist front bandeau swimsuit that was featured on the Today Show. This bathing suit minimizes the hips and waist and enhances the bust with padded bra cups. Available in turquoise/brown and coral/brown patterns, wear this fully-lined bathing suit with, or without, the strap.
