Plus-Size Athletic Swimwear Report

Whether it's for scuba diving, playing water polo, racing, or simply doing laps in the pool for exercise, sometimes basic athletic swimwear is the perfect choice. Cuts and colors tend to be conservative, although options other than classic black are becoming more readily available.  Necklines are usually higher while straps are often wider and constructed to stay in place and add support.

Available in one-piece and swim separates, athletic swimwear can include specialty features like built-in long-line shorts or long sleeves.  Leg openings can be conservative or high, depending on intended use. Options are available in both plus and hard-to-find super sizes for those enjoying active, Health at Every Size lifestyles.

Internet Shopping Resources for Athletic Style Swimwear Size 12+

While the summer swim season sees more options, those in need of athletic swimwear generally swim or play water sports all year.   The following resources are available for all twelve months of the year.

Home of basic, good quality tank and maillot swimwear, some with racer or butterfly backs and more modest leg openings, Lands End has added items such as rash guards in recent years.  Sizing here is some of the most diverse with some swimsuits available in long torso, in addition to women's size 2 to 26W.  Lane Bryant has also been adding sporty styles in recent years, including rash guards, swim tees, and long leg swim bottoms for size 14 to 28W.

Just My Size regularly carries chlorine resistant bathing suits with modest leg openings and cross backs for active swimmers in size 14 to 32W.  Meanwhile, Swimsuits for All offers a wide assortment of swim styles including sportier styles for women size 8 to 34W.  This includes jogger style two piece tankinis, chlorine resistant suits, and those with sports style.

Amazon often will list name brands such as Speedo in larger sizes, in addition to an inventory of items such as rash guards and aquatards in plus-size.
