Swimdresses in general seem to be making a major comeback this season regardless of size. So normally I would cringe at the thought of a swimdress. The very idea reminds me of an old woman in a swimming pool and not nearly young and hip. Hell I’m 24 I don’t want to look like i’m 40. So I searched the web high and low to find the best swimdresses that flatter your shape and don’t seem like they are your moms swimsuit. So without further adew…. the top 7 best swimdresses.

The Jewel Halter Swim Dress

What I love most about this swimdress is the feel of it. It seems natural and not like you are wearing an awkward dress that everyone is going to be staring at you for wearing in the pool. It has a relaxing beach feel and I love the bead work on the halter neckline. It is faltering while still being sexy. This is proof that big girls are beautiful. Absolutely fabulous.

Giraffe Print Bandeau Swimdress

The instant I saw this I loved it. This swimsuit is youthful and fresh with a vibrant feel. The animal print and lime green are exciting and refreshing in a sea of floral prints and blues. You are guaranteed to stand out wearing this to the beach without seeming out of place. A relaxed feel and an open back leave me wanting more without being over exposed.

Fun and flattering halter swim dress is highlighted by a giraffe print bottom and solid bandeau top, which ties in the back for extra support. Ruching along bodice helps create great shape. Includes attached brief.

Colorblock Swimdress

This swimdress is fun and flirty. It is simple yet has a rather hipsterish feel to it. I can totes see myself wearing it rocking a floppy hat and sunglasses sipping on a cocktail with an umbrella in it. This is almost like a swimsuit and a coverup together in one, hell I could see myself wearing this out even (given the right setting like a beach party). Triple threat.

This fun colorblock swimdress with print surplice bust defined by a vibrant empire waist.

One Piece Buckle Waist Swimdress

This sophisticated swimdress is both business and pleasure. It has convertible straps if you are more well endowed and has built in slimming panels in the thighs. The contrast of the black with the print really makes it pop and is a unique find in the swimwear world. Finally the belt just adds a tough of class while laying on your pool chair staring at the cabana boys.

Colorful accents lend stylish distinction to this ultra-flattering plus size swimdress from It Figures! Wear as a halter style or strapless bandeau for two chic looks in one.

Linear Perspective Swimdress

So modern and sexy. The last thing I expected to see on the Catherines website. It is so youthful and vibrant while staying modest and figure flattering. The tie detailing just highlights the cleavage and this is exactly what you want when trying to catch the eye of that summer hottie you have been chasing.

Empire styled swimdress slims your silhouette and flatters your contours. Shape enhancing bodice is cinched at center with a self tie. Wide straps. Full coverage skirted bottom with built-in panty. Lightly padded foam cups, powermesh lining. Catherines swimwear is specifically designed to fit and flatter the plus size woman.

Mixed Print Swimdress

With a nautical feel and a funky pattern I think this swimdress wins the cake of breaking the mold of old lady swimdresses. A preppy feel and belting detailing appear elegant while at the same time youthful. With a tummy control panel built in you also will feel supported and can bring your full sex appeal out to play. So go get them gurrrrl.
