These 19 Curve Swim Brands Have the Chicest, Well-Made Suits
Swim season is upon us, and we all like to shop for our unique body types first and foremost. Of course, prints (or lack thereof for you minimalists), fabric, trends, and comfort level are considerations, too. We want to provide you with the best of the best when it comes to brands that have curve lines so you can feel sexy and carefree poolside and trust that your swimsuit is going to last more than one season. Rather than just naming several labels that offer extended sizing, we're also sharing some background information on these companies and selecting our picks for the most flattering silhouettes, just in case you'd like some guidance.
Whether you're looking for that shiny lurex suit that feels very 2021 and will surely bring in all the compliments or you're mostly focused on tops and bottoms that add structure and support, there are so many great options to choose from. Read up on the retailers ahead, and make sure you're following them for notifications every time there's a new drop of suits or a refresh in stock — because some of these brands are really that popular, simply because quality is a number one priority.
Shop the luxury Australian label for well-structured basics in neutral colors.
Mango's swimwear category has been expanding, and you'll find it doesn't skimp out on the trends. Shop the label for ribbing, ruffles, cutouts, ditsy florals, and lurex.
Andie Swim considers comfort and fit first, taking design inspiration from the brand's customers who provide feedback on the suits. One-pieces and two-pieces come in the most basic of silhouettes, and they're all well-made.
Tanya Taylor just released her first-ever size inclusive, sustainable in-house swim line, and we're obsessed with all the poppy prints and mood-boosting colors. Most pieces come with matching sarongs in the same hand-painted patterns.
The Black-owned, women-founded fashion brand caters to a flashier customer interested in cutouts and bright neons.
We've always loved Mara Hoffman's feel-good prints, and we're especially attracted to the brushstroke pattern she rolled out this season. Hoffman also collaborates with luxury retailer 11 Honoré on swim, so check out the site for additional options.
Lively has become known for its "leisurée"-style underwear, but we love the label's elevated take on swim. There aren't a handful of patterns to shop from but rather simplistic stripes and this key leaf print in secure silhouettes.
LA-based Lime Ricki carries swimwear in sizes XXS-4X and provides some of the best mix-and-match patterns you can dream of. If you're interested in something more minimal with a feminine bow or string-tie shoulders, there's plenty where that came from, too.
The swim and RTW label is crafted in America by local communities in Brooklyn, NY, and you can read all about the brand's major moments in swim success on the website. (We're sure that getting Denise Bidot in a suit, pictured above, is considered one of them!) Malia Mills has what is perhaps the most flattering take on cutouts we've ever seen.
ASOS's affordable price point makes it an attractive brand to shop for curve swim — though pieces sell out fast! We're especially attracted to the trendy patterns and wide range of silhouettes the label brings to the table.
Kitty and Vibe
Kitty and Vibe recently launched a new gingham collection in pastels, but we're also big fans of the animal-print options. The classic pieces are sized based on booty and hip measurements, and all you have to do is DM the brand to get your shopping experienced started.
Eloquii's latest swim drop includes ruffles and poufy sleeves with statement-making patterns. The collection is for the person who loves to stand out and allows a swimsuit to take center stage when styling a beach look.
The Brazilian brand ships its swim worldwide and offers plenty of playful patterns, from contemporary graphics to baroque styles with regal vibes.
Everlane, forever known for its basics, offers up to a size XXL in swimwear. If you're looking for something with clean lines below $100, you can find it here.
If you long for retro silhouettes and kitschy prints, ModCloth is likely already a go-to for you. The groovy new florals, reminiscent of the '70s, are worth checking out this season.
CoEdition is a retail site that stocks several different swim labels and is worth checking out. Some of our favorite brands to shop here include City Chic, Anini, and Mapale for more fashion-forward cuts.

Think of Unique Vintage as ModCloth's long-lost cousin. Retro prints, like lemon slices and polka dots, are the name of the game.
