Meet TPlus: Tammy Rivera’s Bold New Plus Size Swimwear Line

Did you hear? Love and Hip Hop Atlanta Star, Tammy Rivera has expanded her T-Rivera swimwear company to include plus sizes with the launch of TPlus!

Girl!! You know that moment when you see that Instagram post with the sexy outfit and fierce pose and you think to yourself, “Oh yes, I gotta have that! I would kill that! That dress would hug every bit of my curves just right!”

Then you see the size line-up and… womp. It’s not in your size. Well, Tammy Rivera (Love & Hip-Hop) is aiding in obliterating that feelings! She has decided to expand her T-Rivera swimsuit line so everyone can join in on the summer swimwear stunt! Ladies, meet TPLUS, the new addiction to the T-Rivera swimsuit line ranging from sizes 12 – 28!

Yes, girl! Curvy girls are going to get their sexy Instagram pose on, too! Not only is it inclusive, it’s bold! There are no boring looks or consolation prizes here! The pieces are full of bright colors, edgy features, and sexy appliqués.

 Tammy Rivera’s New Plus Size Swimwear Line: TPlus

Meet TPlus: Tammy Rivera's Bold New Plus Size Swimwear Line

Rivera said herself that when she conjured up the idea to expand her line, she wanted it to look “exactly like the standard line.” She noticed too much of the drab plus size swimwear lines adding humble skorts to cover-up or only featuring black/white options. To her, it wasn’t “sexy enough.” She wanted a plus size line that was just as sexy as the standard line, so she decided to create a line by not changing the piece itself, but adjusting the cut of the piece so that it was comfortable and flattering. Still the same piece, just a different fit. Bingo.

Another way Rivera wins is by using what she describes as “real plus-size bodies.” It’s true, because even within the very plus size community, there’s a valid argument that there are internal issues surrounding inclusiveness.  Even when lines are expanded and a spokesmodel is chosen, there’s still a restriction regarding a certain plus-size “shape” that is much too exclusive. Rivera isn’t doing any of that!

She’s throwing away “the standard” and showing full-figured girls rockin’ edgy and sexy swimwear… the very same swimwear that she rocks herself. Shouts to Tammy for this expansion! We look forward to seeing how the line evolves and how it incorporates more pieces!

So what do y’all think about these pieces? I’m feeling that red joint with the zippered deep v-cut! Where my beach babes and poolside pretty-girls at?

    Would love if the brand had a size chart. Can’t find one on their site.

    I wish she had kept it high cut

      Those of us with a belly pooch are mostly glad she changed it, but yeah I wish she had options of high cut and straight cut for both plus and straight size. I know a lot of straight size people who wouldn’t want to wear something that high cut.

      Yes my thoughts exactly… not feeling the granny panties

      Let’s be real ladies, we plus sizes tend to have big bellies. High cut on these suits would have the pooch hanging. I would have prefer it less covered on the ass, but I’m ok with the front!

      So…just because we have a big belly, doesn’t mean we can’t wear high cut. We can show off what we want if it makes us feel fierce. And the point is that not all of us have anything that sag below a certain line, so both options would have been nice.

      Anneka Knotts Morgan I agree with he high cut!

    • Anneka Knotts Morgan

      June 15, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      Yeah, I totally understand that some women with belly pooch don’t mind showing it off, and that not all plus size women have belly pooch. Personally it’s the part of my body I am most self conscious about; my body acceptance journey is not complete, and may never be. I just think there are both plus and straight size women of many different shapes that would prefer to not have the style choice made for them based on their size.

      The high cuts come in plus sizes too 🙂 up to a 20/24.

    What’s the point of sleeves?

    • JeKaren Olaoya

      sun protection, rash guard, etc

    • Marie Christina

      June 14, 2017 at 8:42 pm

      I figured that part but it’s hottt idk i would be sweating i hardly go in the water anyway i guess if you’re a fish it’ll be good.

    Oooh I love these! Though to say she didn’t change them doesn’t make sense. The straight size are all super high cut, and the plus size aren’t. Personally I don’t want to wear high cute because my belly pooch would hang out, but that’s not true of all plus size ladies.

    Its hella cute but why do people think big girls be balling with money?? like come on now. but i do like that even the smaller sizes are still the same price as the plus that IS respectable but come on thats alot of money for a bathing suit. I still got love for tammy tho

  11. Tamara Whatley

    Cute…I wish it did not have the long sleeves or an option without the long sleeves

    But are these made well, is the material thick and sturdy? Does it suck you in a bit? I don’t mind paying more for quality and good fit, but if she expects plus size women to pay $99-130 for her swimwear, it better be worth the price tag, or at least a good sale price!

    Damn I was all set to say I wouldn’t buy anything from her because I loathe and detest anything Love & Hip Hop but those swim suits ARE kinda nice and if I support and buy some maybe she can quit the show and the whole ratchet, hot mess can go away in the archives FOREVER!! 😆😆

    I dig it. And I appreciate that she went for a true plus range, and didn’t stop at 20 or 22. I may have to break my swimsuit hiatus to support
