Best Plus Size Swim Shorts
Today, we are sharing a roundup of our fave plus size swim shorts, for those days at the lake, in the pool or in your backyard, where you’re moving around and being active. You can definitely rock ANY swimsuit without shorts, but sometimes a busy day means you need a bit more coverage.
Listen, I love a plus size bikini that shows ALLLL my curves, but also sometimes I want to run or frolic or play volleyball on the beach, which means I need plus size swim shorts!! You feel me?!?!?!?!
And it is really all about the options for swim, right? Sometimes we want to playfully layer up, are not *ready* for the bikini life, or just prefer a bit more modesty. Regardless of the reason, there are options for you to play in.
In usual TCF fashion, we are here to help… Below are our top recommendations for swim shorts to prevent chub rub and to keep it cute. We made sure to include shorts in a variety of lengths (3.5 inches, 5 inches, and bike short length) in a variety of fabrics! We’ve got you covered!
