Plus Size Beach Vacation Outfits – Part 1

I put together some plus size beach vacation outfits after I had a request to remake my cruise capsule collection.  These are the first three looks, all featuring this kimono.

Wear the kimono as a swim cover-up on beach and pool days.  It comes in sizes up to a 5X, which based on reviews, I would guess to be around a size 26W/28W.

I paired it with an olive green swimsuit.  I love the look of this ruffle v-neck swimsuit, but it’s very low cut in the front with high cut legs.  So keep that in mind.  If you need something with a bit more coverage, here are some more options:

Layer on some coin necklaces for that trendy boho look.  This “choker” is adjustable to 17″ so it should fit most.  But, I linked to a longer option below.

Add a straw tote to pack all of your essentials.  And finish your look with some simple slides.

After the beach, hit the boardwalk in denim shorts and a tank.  Add some trendy platform espadrilles and a rattan crossbody bag.  Now you’re chic and ready for the streets!

Or top a t-shirt dress with the same kimono for another casual option.  Add a longer pendant necklace to complete the look.

  1. LOVE the entire outfit with the green swimsuit and Sam Edelman sandals! The necklace and bag is so pretty. TY for this outfit idea!

  2. I wouldn’t wear a bathing suit like that at any time! Not enough coverage for a plus sized woman! The moral police would be after me! Didn’t care for the color either. Earth tones usually look good on warm skin tones, not on cool ones. You must have some ideas and looks for suits that offer more coverage.

  3. I love all three combinations you put together. Now I see how versatile the kimono can be! The only thing is when I looked at it on Amazon, it looks much longer than it does on your photos. Where would it roughly end on our bodies? (Mid-calf, covering our booty, mid-hip?)
    Thanks! You’ve made me excited for spring break!
