    Times, they are a-changing, and we couldn't be more thrilled. In the past, plus-size women have had to settle for whatever oversized, floral, and frankly not-so-cute bathing suit they could find, but it’s 2016, and swim designs for the size 14-plus set are finally on-trend.

    As awesome as the variety is, it can be daunting to rifle through so many sites and racks to find the best piece. That's why we’ve curated a collection of the styles we're loving this season. Whether you’re all about embellishments or live for minimalism, there’s something for every style, budget, and body. Find yours ahead; it’s time to take back the beach.

    Cutouts
    Cutout swimsuits are dominating summer style, and thankfully there are options for every comfort level, from teeny-tiny slices to full-on lattice work. If you're worried about funky tan lines, we'd say this trend is worth it.

    Minimalist
    Minimalist bathing suits can be surprisingly challenging to find in plus sizes, as so many brands feel the need to add ruching, twists, or some sort of fabric detailing. Think of this as the palate cleanser to all other swim trends this season. To pull it off, stick to solid colors, avoid ornaments, and look for designs that cut higher up on your hip.

    Rebdolls "Nobody's Angel" One Piece Swimsuit, $34.99, available at Rebdolls.
