On the Way

Whether you have plans before the beach or you’re heading straight there, prioritize a cute beach look that makes you feel radiant and confident.

Dresses–Plus size boutique dresses are easy to slide on over a swimsuit and they are effortlessly chic. Whether you love a maxi or a mini fit, make your next beach look one with a flattering dress that you can easily toss off once you’re ready to hit the water. 

Shorts–Denim shorts are standard for beach days. They fit over swimsuit bottoms seamlessly, and you can rock them and your bikini top together for a laid-back vibe. 

Sarongs–If you’re heading straight to the beach, throw on a sexy sarong that has you feeling like the radiant goddess you are!

At the Beach

Swimwear is a necessity! Whether you’re someone who likes to lay out and take in the scenery, or dive headfirst into the waves, we have the styles for you!

Confidence Boosting Swimwear–Whether it’s a solo beach day or you have all of your friends coming to hang out with you, you’ll want a killer bikini that hugs your curves just right. If you love to lay out at the beach while occasionally dipping your toes in the water, a plus size bikini or plus size one-piece swimsuit is perfect for you. Bikini's can allow you to work on your tan while one-pieces provide more coverage and support and can be great for body surfing and playing volleyball

Sexy Cover-Ups–If you want a look that turns heads, pack your favorite sarong or see-through mesh T-shirt or crochet dress to throw on over your swimsuit. Top the look off with a blingy necklace and some statement sunglasses, and you’ll be looking like the hottest chick on the coastline. 

Cut-Offs–Plan on hitting the volleyball courts? Plus size shorts for women are the perfect thing to pack and throw on over your swimsuit if you decide to take up a game or walk the pier. 

Oversized Tee–After a day of splashing in the waves and soaking up the sun, you may find yourself wanting to cozy up in an oversized tee to keep the sun off or just lounge around in. Plus size tie-dye shirts and tops make the perfect beach accessory for those times when you just want to wear something easy and breezy over your swimsuit, but also want to look cute.

Outfits to Wear After the Beach

When the day is winding down and it’s time to leave the beach, we don’t know about you, but we want to feel as dry and clean as possible–which feels like an impossible task because we are covered in sand and salt. Here are some looks that will have you feeling refreshed and confident after a long day in the sun. 

Palazzo Pants–The beach is great and all, until chafing happens. Slide these wide leg, oversized pants on for instant relief and a cute post-beach look. You can easily top these pants off with a crop top or your bikini top. 

Shorts–Those cute cut-offs you wore to the beach can also be worn home! If you have plans after the beach, pack a cute pair of wedges and a couple of accessories to liven your look up. You can leave your bikini top on or you can top off the outfit with plus size graphic tees for an edgy and fun look.

Tie-dye dresses– Plan on leaving your bikini on after you leave the beach? Plus size tie-dye dresses are not only super cute and trendy, but they will also mask the water marks from your wet swimsuit underneath! 

Crochet Cover-Ups– These chic dresses allow you to still show your favorite swimsuit off after you leave the beach while also providing you with enough coverage. If you have plans to grab tacos after or do some pier walking, pair your favorite crochet dress with a pair of chic sandals or wedges.
