Don’t avoid the beach or pool due to self-consciousness of not conforming to the idea of the perfect body. The perfect body is the one which functions well and can enjoy a good time.
One-piece Bathing Suits for Big Bottomed Women
The lower the back, the smaller or more proportionate the butt will appear. V-backs are more flattering than rounded backs. A square back suit can give a smart, sexy look to the behind. Sometimes if the backside is disproportionately large, showing a bit of butt cleavage with the lower back can be sexy and draw the eye away from heavier thighs.
The 2-piece or Bikini for the Large Butt
Similarly if wearing a 2- piece bathing suit, don’t have the bottom part sit at the waist. Let the suit come up to the belly button or just above. By optically dividing the body in 2, the bottom half will appear smaller. The higher the suit’s bottom waist, the bigger the wearer’s bottom and rear end will appear.
The Cut of the Suit Legs to Flatter the Big Behind
The higher the bikini or full suit leg is cut, the smaller the butt appears. Too high a cut though gives the appearance of material fading into butt cheeks and isn’t flattering.
On the other hand, boy shorts cut right to the heaviest part of the thigh may seem a good choice but actually, enlarge the whole area. True boy shorts flatter thin women. Swim trunks or surfer bottoms sitting slightly below the natural waist can be comfortable and sit loosely over the bottom in a nice way.
Some large bottomed women like to choose a skirt bottom or bathing suit. Understand that the length of the skirt reveals exactly how old or miserable the wearer feels. The longer the skirt, the more material is sitting on the thigh and while the bottom is covered the curve of the leg also is covered giving a failed look of an outdated tennis outfit on the beach. Keep the skirt around crotch level or at least an inch below. Don’t wear pleated skirts but one that has a nice smooth front and doesn’t flip up in back at exactly the point where the butt juts out the most but instead curves gently over the most rounded portion of the bottom.
Best Colors for Big Bottomed Lady’s Swim Wear
Black isn’t mandatory but is sometimes a signal saying the wearer feels fat and is trying to hide that fact. White bottoms are verboten. Don’t wear a white-bottomed suit no matter how well it is lined. The butt will look enormous unless the wearer is quite slender and dark skinned or very tan. Patterned suits detract the eye from the top and bottom of the suit and can be flattering. A small pattern is preferable to large blooms over each butt cheek. Geometric patterns which draw the eye into the body center or the abdomen can have a slimming effect. Two-toned suits with the bottom being darker than the top are nice.
Bathing Suit Material, Fabric, and Style for the Large Behind
Body hugging fiber can lift and shape a backside. Avoid ruffles and zippers and low-lying belts over the buttocks. Popular swimwear brands below can be checked out. Similar styles can be found under different name brands.
- Suits with Lycra up to 32% such as Miracle suits will lift and support the buttocks. Spanx has 28% spandex/elastene and some nice figure controlling bathing suits, unfortunately, all shown on very slim models.

Wash the suit once before wearing to see how the elastic holds up and for hygiene purposes and then enjoy the pool or beach. Once in the water, nobody is too big.
