Infinite Swim: Where to Find Swimsuits in Sizes 32+

One of the best things about summer is water: swimming, splashing, wading, dancing, drinking, flavoring, floating, fishing, boating, or soaking in it!

The larger your clothing size, though, the more challenging it can be to find a swimsuit you find comfortable or beautiful. For folks who wear clothing sizes larger than are generally carried at brick-and-mortar stores — even plus-size stores — finding a bathing suit can be a real summer-joy-hindering pain.

Here are over 10 places for people who wear over a size U.S. 32 (who might identify as superfat or infinifat) to find both feminine and masculine-styled bathing suits, swimsuits and swim trunks.

(All sizes and prices are in U.S. measurements unless otherwise noted.)

SmartGlamour is a body liberation activist’s dream: clothing truly designed for ALL bodies, custom measurements offered, and models in lots of sizes and shapes. Owner Mallorie Dunn says:

“SmartGlamour is for everyone – truly. So why wouldn’t our models represent that visually? On this website you’ll find people of all shapes, sizes, heights, weights, ability, ethnicity, age, and identity.

There is not a single person who is not welcome to model for us. We will never crop out our model’s heads, make them model without their glasses, or depict them in a negative, weak, angry, or bored light. Our models are also never, ever photoshopped or airbrushed.”

Here’s how Ro describes her work:

Bikinis, both low and high rise, crop tops, halter, triangle tops, fatkinis, skirtinis, monokinis, one-pieces and so much more. Made from nylon/lycra spandex, using high quality threads, elastics and notions. Double lined with princess seams and circle skirts. All in sizes 1X-6X. Please be sure to check back often!”
