There’s nothing like celebrating summer by enjoying a nice day on the beach. For many women, that means sporting stylish bikinis and one-pieces. For plus-size women like myself, we’re often forced to wear shorts and shirts in efforts to hide our bodies. Plus-size bodies were never meant to be celebrated and seen without layers of clothes on top of them. Fortunately, things have changed and full figured women love showing off their curves, thighs and bellies because bodies were meant to be celebrated too. Here are 22 swimsuits that will make you feel confident, comfortable, and hotter than the sun this summer!
