‘Tis the season to be poolside sipping Bahama Mamas or on the sandy beaches. You can be as free or covered as you want to be. Remember back in the day, when the only plus size swimsuit cover-up option was a too big t-shirt? Or those terry cloth club house wife thingy? Yeah, I’d prefer not to remember either, sis! But, those days are long gone!
Plus size designers are answering the call and bringing us true fashion options for our every need. If you don’t have your swimsuit yet, start here. Whether you choose to don a two piece bikini or a classic one piece look, there is a cover up option to fit your style and elevate your look to the next level.
Why A Cover-up?
Personally, I rarely toss on a cover-up while I’m frolicking about in the sun, because my swimsuit and my body are what I want to show off. However, there are those days when I am meeting friends for brunch in the midst of my basking and toss on a cover-up because apparently swimsuits only aren’t acceptable in public. Bummer.
Let me set the stage for you… you are at a pool party or at the beach, but while spending time out of the water, you want to enjoy a great tropical drink, or grab a quick snack, OR you just want to stunt and shine in all of your plus sized glory!
This is where the plus size cover up comes into play. With that in mind, the most revealing cover ups are what appeal to me the most and I am here to share a few of the best finds!

Not a fan of the outdoors, unless we're somewhere on the beach, sippin' something strong. Mac and cheese solve all my problems. Target is actually Heaven and I live there.
