Hands Down, These Are the 8 Coolest Plus-Size Swimsuit Brands

There's a frustration here in the UK that there aren't enough plus-size brands available, especially when it comes to more specialised categories like swimwear. Compared with the US, it seems that we Brits haven't always had as good a range available, but things are beginning to change. Not only can you get plus-size brands shipped over from the States, but there are also (finally) more cool brands available in the UK. ASOS Curve has led the charge for some time now, and its bikinis and one-pieces are genuinely great. But thanks to the online retailer stocking plenty of other plus-size brands, there are even more options for you to consider.

Today, I've compiled a list of the best plus-size swimsuit brands that I can find. The criteria is that they have to be truly more inclusive of sizing options (not just catering to people with fuller busts) and have to look good. I've delved into ASOS's offering to dig up my favourite brands, but I also looked at other stand-alone plus-size labels that do exceptional swimwear, such as Torrid, which you can ship from the U.S. Just remember that import taxes may apply, so do your due diligence first.

I also want to point out that each brand has its own USP and definitely caters to different personal styles, which is great for anyone in desperate need of variety. You'll find classic swimsuits available as well as fun animal-print two-pieces that are a little more adventurous. Keep scrolling for my guide on the best plus-size swimsuit brands around. 

1. River Island Plus

Starting off with one of my favourites, I love River Island's extra approach to swimwear. I'd definitely opt for the one-pieces, as they're just so cool. The belted one-shoulder leopard-print suit is a total winner. 

Size range: 18–28

2. Torrid

While this is based in the U.S., thankfully, Torrid ships to the UK. There are many kinds of styles that this brand stocks a variety of—from racerback swim tanks to activewear pieces. 

Size range: 14–32

3. Collusion Plus

If you're looking for more fashion-forward styles, then Collusion is what you're looking for. And the swimwear is no different. Right now, there's a chic square-neck black one-piece, a tiger-print bikini and a crinkle two-piece in brown to choose from. The question is, Which one will you go for? 

Size range: 16–30

4. H&M+

H&M has been doing its plus-size arm for some time, and it just keeps getting better. The swimsuit offering is still a bit smaller than other brands, but the options available are all great. 

Size range: 18–26

5. Peek & Beau

In the industry, we'd call Peek & Beau swimwear "classics with a twist" The swimsuits are more traditional in terms of prints—stripes, florals and polka dots—but the silhouettes include cut-outs and ruffles.

Size range: 18–30

6. ASOS Curve

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with ASOS Curve. It's a reliable brand that not only caters to trends but also still manages to create long-lasting designs. 

Size range: 16–30

7. Wolf & Whistle Curve

A brand that also works for those with a fuller bust? Look no further than Wolf & Whistle for its Curve swimsuits. 

Size range: 18–30

8. Adidas x Ivy Park Plus

If you're after sportswear-style pieces, then look to Beyoncé's collab with Adidas. 

Size range: 24–30
