With the sun as angry as it is these days, it can only mean that summer is here. And it’s the excuse you need and have been waiting for to pull the trigger on those carted bikinis or one-piece numbers that would keep you comfortable in the sea, on the shore, or under the sun.

For women with generous beauty and plump, there’s no reason to not buy something flattering when options for any body type now exist. More than anything, though, you would want to wear something comfortable if you’re going places in this season of the sun.

Here’s where The Beat Manila recommends you buy swimwear that complements your curvy contours.

Recommended: Skye (bodysuit), Juno (two-piece), Isla (two-piece)

HOF+ doesn’t hide their ambition to be the go-to spot for anything plus-size. But, if you’re going to lay on one of their goods this summer, it’s got to be their swimsuits that don’t skimp on style. The Juno and Isla designs embrace your curves and are generous in showing skin (if that’s your style). The seller knows their market so well that this is the closest you can get to buy-and-wear in this size section.

Every Body

Recommended: Feeling Perky (bodysuit), Feeling Cheeky

Another company that flies the plus-size flag proudly, Every Body is all about the all-inclusive life in colorful palettes. With their Feeling Cheeky line, you can mix and match your tops and bottoms to your liking. As for their Feeling Perky bodysuit, it’s the safer but equally flattering choice that’s ideal for family trips.

Few can match what Float brings to the plus-size swimwear market. They offer so much that you can probably spend an afternoon and fill your entire cart with only swimsuits. Whether you want something skimpy and skin-baring or something conservative but stylish, you simply can’t go wrong here. And with size runs that reach XXXL, there’s plenty to choose from.

Eighth Mermaid

Recommended: Naomi Set, Chloe Hi-Kini Set (two-piece), Carli (bodysuit)

Eighth Mermaid’s first goal is to make you Instagram-ready when you hit the beach. Every swimsuit is certified influencer-esque in style. They even have mix-and-match options, as well as full sets of apparel. But, as for your next beach wear, the Naomi set will make you look like a tennis star on the shore, while the Chloe Hi-Kini and Carli are easy choices as your sun suit for the season.

Balud Swimwear

Recommended: Unna (bodysuit), Bela (bodysuit), Maria Highwaist (two-piece)

At first look, comfort seems to be the priority of Balud Swimwear. And, really, no one can fault them for that. The last thing you’d want to be while swimming, taking pictures or just taking a leisurely walk is uncomfortable. Nothing among the Unna, Bela and Maria Highwaist will keep you moving gracefully even when the sun is at its peak.

Océan Essentials

Recommended: Venice (bodysuit), Sunset (bodysuit), Malta (bodysuit)

Everything that Océan Essentials offers has large size runs. They are practically a one-stop shop for any kind of swimwear, two-pieces and bodysuits, and all that. They have everything in every style: something cheeky, skimpy, modest, or comfortable.

Sew Local

Recommended: Tanya (top), Rita (bottom), Tricia (bodysuit), Anne (bodysuit)

Sew Local is a staple in the local swimwear scene, and they don’t put a foot wrong in price, style, and choices. The Tricia bodysuit is a hippy choice for those who dare, but if you want, you can choose a specific top to pair with a specific bottom. The Tanya top and Rita bottom come to mind when it comes to a combo that’s both comfortable and social media-ready.

Blackbough Swim

Recommended: Bahamas (top + bottom), Blair (top + bottom), Sophia (top + bottom)

Blackbough Swim is a Filipino success story that’s fast becoming an international destination for swimwear, and they are as inclusive as they come. Everything about the options screams summer, and with the Bahamas and its sea-blue palette, love-themed Blair, or the evergreen Sophia, you’ll be beach-ready at a moment’s notice.
