Cruisin’- 9 Plus Size Picks for An Amazing Spring Break

It's hard to believe that spring break is about to start, as well as the height of resort and cruise season--especially when I just looked through my Facebook feed, and almost all of my friends' pictures are of snow or comparison shots of their kids or dogs next to massive piles of snow. Or just…snow. 

With my role in the Zappos Customer Loyalty Team, I get to talk to people every day who are heading for warmer climes. Florida and the Bahamas seem to be the most popular places people are heading to this year to get out of the cold.

A change in latitude can be an amazing thing for the attitude, and there is nothing that makes you feel better, and gets you ready for spring and all its new beginnings, like a new wardrobe piece that is bright, colorful, and wonderfully feminine and flirty.

Try a fabulous dress in bright colors or a great new bathing suit that accentuates your best assets and makes you feel like Hollywood royalty. Armed with spring hottest bright hues, you will be ready for that warm weather when it finally arrives- or when you arrive to your snow-free destination!

Fresh Picks: Red Carpet Glam

Award-show season sure has a way of making us dream of fancy soirées and glamorous nights of being dolled up and dressed to the nines. We’re taking cues from Hollywood’s most beautiful people as they strut down the red carpet this awards season, channeling our inner glamour goddesses for special occasions.

From gorgeous cocktail dresses to show-stopping floor-length gowns, we’ve got a great selection of beautiful red carpet-worthy styles from Badgley Mischka, Adrianna Papell, Nicole Miller and more.

Whether it’s a black-tie spring wedding or a fancy opening gala, the perfect gown or party dress is essential for making the right impression. And let’s not forget the shoes! No special occasion dress is ever complete without the perfect dress shoes. Go for a simple strappy heel like the celeb-favorite Stuart Weitzman “Nudist”, or perhaps slip into something more intricate to pair with a simple black gown. Either way, the shoes really do make the outfit, so choose wisely!

The Perfect Fit: Swimwear for Different Body Types

Let’s face it, swimsuit shopping isn’t exactly on most people’s top five list of favorite things to do. It often involves a lot of guesswork, dressing rooms with less-than-flattering lighting, and that nagging voice inside that keeps saying: “I should hit the gym more…”

But no need to have a swimsuit-season meltdown! The most important thing to keep in mind when finding the right swimsuit is FIT. Focusing on styles that work well with YOUR body type (not the Photoshopped model in the catalog!) can mean the difference between a meltdown and easy-breezy & fun swimsuit shopping!

Our swimwear buyers have handpicked a few stellar examples below of the most flattering types of swimwear for specific body types to make swimwear shopping a breeze.

Don’t forget that all of our swimwear receives FREE next business day shipping + FRRE return shipping, too! Now you can take the swimsuit shop in the comfort of your own room. Easier than you thought, huh? Let's get started:

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Athletic Build: For women who don’t have too much in the curves department (i.e. no hips, broader shoulders), a two-piece bikini is generally more flattering because it breaks up the straight line of your body. A lower-waisted bottom also accentuates your widest part, while fringe and ruffles add more volume and femininity where you want it.  

TYR Crosscut Fit Workout Solid Bikini Set 

L*Space Dolly Fringe Bandeau & Novelties Hanki Panki Bitsy Bottom

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

 

Pear-Shaped: If you’ve got a fuller lower half, a fold-over bottom or something that’s cinched and adjustable on the sides gives your curves more room to move! If you’re going for a print at the bottom, make sure to balance it out with a print up top.

Vintage-style high-waisted bottoms are also great for giving a fuller backside more coverage. Plus, they’re super flirty and cute!

Badgley Mischka Maya Triangle Bra & Adjustable Brief

Seafolly Bella Rose Bandeau Bustier & High-Waisted Pant

 badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Apple-Shaped: Ruching is your best friend when it comes to camouflaging a larger tummy. Find swimsuits that accentuate your bust and show a clear separation between your chest and your stomach. A one-shoulder suit also calls attention to your top half and away from your mid section. 

Trina Turk Zanzibar One Piece

Miraclesuit Net Work Jena Swimsuit

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear

Large Bust: Find halter bikini tops with wider straps to offer the support you need. An underwire also reinforces lift and support where you need it most. Opt for an adjustable back for the perfect fit all around.

Seafolly Goddess DD Cup Halter Top & Twist Band Mini Hipster Bottom

Vix Para Bia Tube Triangle Top & Long Tie Side Full Bottom

badgley mischka, bikinis, bollabong, l-space, miraclesuit, seafolly, swimwear, swimwear for different body shapes, swimwear for different body types, trina turk, TYR, vix, wildfox, women's swimwear 

Small Bust: To add more volume, find tops with ruching and ruffles at the bust. A bold, busy print also helps call attention to your top half.

Embrace your ability to wear smaller, sexier styles like the bandeau! Play around with fun cuts and trendy, slinky shapes that larger-chested gals couldn’t pull off. It’s all about having fun after all!

The Bohemian Bride

Not all brides are created equal. Some are more “bohemian flower child” than “ballroom princess”. When it comes to achieving that effortless boho bridal outfit, the key is picking a dress and accessories that reflect your laidback style—but turned up a notch on the glam factor!

Keep your hair loose and flowy, perhaps some beachy waves, and keep your makeup natural and simple to go with the overall relaxed feel.
