When people talk about swimwear, more specifically about designer swimwear, there is one common misconception. For some reason, people believe that only slim, fit, and beautiful people can aspire to wear designer swimwear. Such a belief is especially garnered by women; women believe that the most exclusive designers only worry about small, thin women. Because of this, most heavy women (and in a lesser degree, men) live their lives with a mild complex with what has to do with plus size swimwear. Some people stop wearing specific designs, and in more severe cases, they forego the beach and swimming pools all together. If you are one of those heavy persons who has come to believe that you have access to designer swimwear, then you should know that you are mistaken. Designer swimwear does not discriminate against age, size, skin color, creed, figure, etc. So, if you find that there’s a specific design that you absolutely love, go ahead and get it. If you can find it in your size, and if you can afford it, then don’t worry about anything or anyone else.
Today’s fashion world has created this image of beauty and style that consists on being fit and thin. It is almost as if the fashion world was trying to send heavy people all over the world a message saying that they were unworthy of wearing designer clothing. Now, this might have been the case in years past, but it is no longer the case. Fortunately, designers are beginning to take heavy people into consideration when designing their collections (which, of course, includes swimwear). Today any person can find plus size swimwear from a variety of designers at stores that specialize in plus size swimwear. Also, if you prefer online purchases, you can browse through your favorite designers’ websites and see if you find any model that you might actually like (and that comes in your size). Of course, not all models will come in all sizes, and the reason for this is simple: not all models go well with all people.
So, just remember this. If you are a heavy person, do not let anyone tell you what you can or cannot wear. The only thing that matters is that you like what you wear, that you are comfortable with it, and also, that it looks good on you. Of course, if you are a mature woman using a two-piece suit that exposes a lot of skin will probably not do you justice; the same goes for a senior man who tries wearing a Speedo at the beach. As time passes the body changes; what once might have worked will not necessarily still work. So, before making any final decisions try out different options. There’s a lot of designer plus size swimwear out there, and as long as you look, you will find the piece that best works for you.
