Although the swimsuit options for a woman wanting a tall plus size tummy control bathing suit may seem limited, there really are many beautiful styles and designs of swimwear made to fit this body type perfectly. Try a few of these swimsuits to find your perfect fit.
Where to Find Bathing Suits That Fit
A tall plus size woman needs a bathing suit that is cut longer in the torso area, providing a comfortable fit while compensating for extra height. The following options also include tummy control which can help you feel more confident showing off your new swimwear.
Swimsuits for all
Swimsuits for all is a newer company that prides itself on carrying swimsuits to accommodate all body shapes and sizes. Some of their tummy control offerings include:
- Longitude Parakeet Surplice Swimsuit - This suit has a cross-over neckline and soft internal cups so that it is flattering for women with ample busts. The legs and rear are cut modestly so there is no awkward bulging and no unwanted showing of skin. Additionally, the blue print accent cuts diagonally above the black bathing suit bottom, drawing the eye upward and slimming the hips. There is a power mesh lining inside the suit for tummy control. In sizes 8-24 for about $65.
- Longitude Allure Highneck Tank Swimsuit - If you want to keep your chest covered but still look stylish, consider this highneck suit. The beautiful vertical blue print makes you look long and lean, and the lighter colors on top direct the eye away from your tummy and hips. This suit also has a built-in power mesh tummy lining and built-in soft bra cups. Available in sizes 14-24 for about $65.
- Longitude Blue Anchor X-Back One-Piece - This stunning swimsuit has abstract strokes of different shades of blue and black all coming from the slimmest point on the waist to help complement an hourglass shape. The legs, rear and chest provide full coverage, and the back has cross-straps for extra support and style. This suit also has Longitude's signature power mesh tummy control panel. Available in sizes 8-24 for about $60.
Lands' End is known for their casual clothing in classic styles, but don't overlook them when it comes to high-quality, tall, plus-size options for clothes and bathing suits. Not all of their selections have tummy control, but some that do are:
- Slender Scoopneck One Piece Swimsuit - This black suit boasts that you will look instantly slimmer - in fact, it says that you actually will look one size smaller. With the pleated scoopneck and shirred waist, it will indeed make you appear thinner. Twisted cross straps decorate the back so that you don't feel like your all-black suit is too plain, and the high-tech fabric helps hold your tummy (and everything else) in. Available in sizes 14-24 for about $150.
- Slender Tunic One Piece Swimsuit - Another Lands' End suit designed to make you look smaller with its high-tech performance fabric, this suit has a retro style with thick halter straps and a sweetheart neckline. This suit is mostly black with some small white leaves on the chest, and above the fitted suit there is a thin draped overlay with some shirring to give you even more curve coverage. Available in sizes 18-22 for about $150.
At Cyberswim, you can search for swimsuits by brand or size, but you can also search by feature, such as tummy control, bust minimizer, and support full bust. It's easy to find just the right fit using their fit categories.
Longitude Plus Co ntinental Triple Tier Tank - If you want a suit that doesn't reveal every curve, particularly if you want bust coverage, consider this swimsuit. It has three brightly printed flowing layers up top above a black bottom. The flowing layers reach to about the belly button, and the tank's tummy control power mesh panel helps to keep you looking slim. Available in sizes 18-22 for about $100.
Longitude Plus Gold Embellishments Mesh High Neck - Forget the everyday swimsuit and go for a more exotic look with this one-piece. The black body is topped with gold metallic accents and the upper chest is made of sexy power mesh. This suit would look perfect on a full bust, and the tummy control panel will help shape your curves. Available in sizes 16-24 for around $110.
