Over the years, plus-sized swimwear has progressed from boring non-fashionable cover-ups to fashion statements that expose skin in stylish and attractive ways. New and revived beachwear tricks balance functionality with sex appeal every year. In 2016, designers are featuring a fun assortment of creative approaches to show off your curvy figure. So let’s take a look at 5 must have suits to add your swimsuit collection for summer 2016.

1. Preppy Nautical Style Suit

Clean, classic swimwear featuring solids, color blocks, and thick stripes in various combinations exude yacht-club prestige. Decorative details like zippers, buttons, ties, and bows salute celebrated nautical traditions.

2. Lovely Lingerie Inspired Suit

Emerging from candlelit bedrooms to sunlit pools, lingerie adornments are claiming public notice in swimwear. Sheer panels, scallops, lace borders, and Swiss dots are trending. Lining attractively placed keyholes with translucent or filigree fabrics creates sexy looks that aren’t too skimpy. You will feel feminine in soft, sweet fabrics that convey romance.

3. Boho Chic Swimsuit

Today’s designers are merging those retro bohemian looks into modern beachwear. You’ll find mixed prints and fabrics, lavish paisleys, crisscross lace-up tops, and nonchalant off-the-shoulder allure. Boho-infused swimwear’s flowy, ethnic, and vintage elements encourage timeless self-expression. Embrace that free-spirited gypsy attitude with confidence!

4. A High Neck Swimsuit

Swimsuits with high necklines are popular looks this season. Embellishments from braiding to crochet to extravagant patterns make high necks cool ways to celebrate the warm weather. Flaunting an elaborately interwoven kaleidoscope of colors like this Kenneth Cole Reaction tankini swimsuit with a high neckline offers more coverage and allows you to slip into shorts for a presentable out of the water appearance.

5. Strappy Restraints

You’ll notice skin-baring strips in crisscross patterns and straight lines over chest, midriff, or back areas. Maybe you’ll feel sexier in evenly structured rows of sleek side bindings connecting separate one or two piece sections. This Becca ETC neon fuchsia tankini has artistic strap work across the center front chest area and is a bold way to proclaim empowering fashion dominance. The wild color and edgy bands may help you embrace this adventurous trend beyond the beach.
