Let's face it: Even in 2012, swimwear options for plus sizes are...less than stellar (ruffle skirts aren't exactly our definition of fashion forward). But luckily, there are a few designers willing to bet that women over size 14 actually want to look cute, poolside.
We're all about helping you feel great in your skin, so we've rounded up nine options that will have you feeling beach-ready in no time. And if you're a little more on the daring side (which we're all for), we've included extra-cool bikini options that provide some support. So, grab your shades, ladies — it's time to show that every body is a beach body.
