It’s not always easy finding flattering, comfortable swimwear in larger sizes, but there are some specialist brands and retailers out there that cater for broader size ranges, and one that we’ve just come across is Yours Clothing.
The business started life as a market stall in the 1980s before opening stores and finally a website in 2007. It specialises in fashion and accessories in sizes 14-32 and these days lays claim to the title of largest plus size retailer in Europe.
Alongside an extensive fashion collection and a lingerie range that stocks products from the likes of Elomi, Goddess, Bestform and Maidenform, Yours Clothing also has a collection of swimwear styles that all feature power mesh tummy control and flattering design details like strategically placed ruching.
The collection includes a number of lively summer prints as well as block colours and classic combinations such as black and white, and there are one-pieces, tankinis and swimdresses in the range.
We like the collection because it has been designed specifically for sizes 16-32, rather than just being ‘sized up’ to fit larger sizes. There’s also a good mix of sober, stylish choices or look-at-me colours and prints to suit individual tastes, plus there’s a selection of beachwear styles such as kaftans and tunics to complete your holiday outfit.
Prices are reasonable too, with swimsuits and swimdresses costing between £30-£40 and tankini sets coming in around the same. The only downside is lack of cup sized fittings across the range, although a few styles come in cup size ranges such as DD/E and F+.
Here’s a taster of the collection, and you can view the full range on Yoursclothing.co.uk.
