Sharing is caring!

Summer has ARRIVED, and it’s time to break out your plus size cute swimsuits.  Summer ALSO means outdoor barbecues, throwing horseshoes, and plus size friendly pool floaties for all of your pool and beach parties, right?

So listen… Have you ever looked at those really fancy and terribly cute pool floaties and wondered if they’re worth it?  Thought about framing your perfect “Instagram Moment” with you lounging in a swan or flamingo floatie?

Me too!

While the size/weight recommendations on most pool floaties don’t enter the plus realm, most plus size babes I’ve talked to (up to a size 28!) haven’t had issues with the ones we’ve purchased.  They have, however, had issues actually getting on the floatie, hair and makeup intact, so buyer beware!

Below, you’ll find a roundup of the cutest pool floaties to snag, and also some photos of our fave plus size models rocking it on a pool floatie!
