For gender non-conforming folks, going to the beach can be fraught with uncertainty. There are few places where so much of our bodies are visible and few garments so publicly gendered as swimwear. Luckily, more and more companies are coming out with options for a range of bodies beyond your typical bikini or board short. There are many androgynous options out there, no matter your style!

Since it’s debut in 2013, the partnership between Gabi Gregg and Swimsuits For All has produced some of the most coveted plus size swimwear pieces. Recently, TLA covered the editorial campaign starring Gregg herself. New designs, re-releases of previous designs in new colorways, and a few accessory items comprise the partnership’s 5th collection. I’m excited to review a couple of my favorite suits from this round of designs.

After purchasing a teeny-tiny mermaid-colored string bikini that actually fits me, I was inspired to share the wealth. Fun, full-bust-friendly swimsuits are out there – I promise! And here are 25 of them, just in time for your best summer ever.
For someone who only occasionally makes it into the water, I spend a lot of time looking at swimsuits. While I confess I don’t know nearly as much about swim as I do about intimate apparel, the more I research and learn and discover new designers, the more intrigued I am. Like lingerie, the world of swim is deceptively complex. Not only does swimwear have to be fashionable, comfortable, and […]
