swimsuitsforall was founded with a single goal--to make it simple for women of all shapes and sizes to find plus size swimwear that they can look and feel amazing in. We believe that fashionable swimwear should be accessible to everyone, not just those under a certain size. That's why we seek out trendy one piece and two piece swimsuits in sizes 8 to 34 and make them easy to shop in our online store. We even bring you the best looks in cover ups, so that you can put together complete ensembles for the beach and pool with ease.

Looking for cover ups that conceal the hips, buttocks and thighs but allow the top of a tankini, bikini or one piece swimsuit to be seen? Board shorts and beach pants are the perfect cover up options to consider. These pull-on pants treat you to a relaxed fit and coverage that starts at the waist, giving plus size swimwear the look of a finished outfit. Pants and board shorts are great style solutions for mingling at pool parties, sipping drinks at beachside bars and lounging in the sand.

If you want to show a little leg, focus on board shorts as you shop for cover ups. Board shorts are wide-legged bottoms that are hemmed high to reveal the calves. You can find board shorts that stop at the mid-thigh and that travel all the way to the knee. Options include solid color, patterned and graphic designs that go great with many different plus size swimwear looks.

For even more leg coverage, beach pants are your best bet. These loose fitting, airy pants have ankle-length hemlines and comfortable elastic waists. Many styles are slightly sheer to provide a tempting peek at your legs, and like board shorts, these cover ups come in a wide array of solid colors and patterns to coordinate with your swimsuits.

Unsure which board shorts or beach pants will go with your favorite plus size swimwear designs? Whether you're purchasing a bikini, tankini or one piece swimsuit today and want to find cover ups to complement it or wish to select a cover up to go with your existing swimwear wardrobe, you can count on swimsuitsforall to help you choose the ideal style. Our team of plus size swimwear experts is standing by to answer your questions and give you personal shopping recommendations. Contact us now at 1.888.241.SWIM for the assistance you require.

    PERFECT for my legs!

    I had to purchase and return a few times over to find the best fit, and I chose these board shorts for a few reasons: • The stretch. I hate feeling confined in a non-flexible fabric. As a fitness instructor and personal trainer, I love stretch fabric as my thighs are strong and 100% cotton or linen anything refuses to fit comfortably. • The side pocket. Many women's shorts don't come with a Velcro pocket. Well I keep Chapstick in my pocket every day and if I can't have it handy, I'm not buying the item. NOPE. • Longevity & durability. You can't beat the quality of the fabric for the price! I'm not a trendy shopper and will almost always buy well and buy once. All my trainer gear lasts for at least 10 years and I put my clothing through a LOT! I like simple. I like durable. These shorts fit the bill 110%.

    Nice Shorts for cover-up

    The size selection for the curvy ladies. Shorts are a Nice fit, but I will be wearing these as cover-ups. There is no inner lining.

  5. 3 out of 5 stars.

    Very nice

    The material is awesome, dries quickly. Fits true to size, good length and has a little stretch to it. Just enough. The only drawback is the weird closing. I'd rather keep it smooth, without adding a bump on my belly because of the closing. I will be sewing it and removing the tie closure. Other than that, defiantly a winner.
