Plus size swimwear: Shine in the swimming pool with the right swimsuit

Winter is coming and with it the cold days that you prefer to spend indoors. So it is time again for a few laps in the indoor swimming pool, but many lipedema sufferers don't really dare. The uncertainty and fear of rejection are strong. I can understand that and of course they will watch. Whether fat, thin, large or small - people are curious and look no matter who comes in. After all, you are relatively undressed. In the end, however, the respect for you outweighs that you defy the looks and still enjoy the movement in the water. If you're still shy, maybe take a friend with you the first few times, who can distract you a little from your fear.

A step in the right direction can already be the purchase of a great swimsuit in which you feel beautiful, comfortable and safe.
Here I present you a couple of great models with which you will shine the next time you pull a lane!


What to look out for when buying:

  • Sewn-in cups
  • Butt seam at a comfortable depth so that nothing slips up or in
  • the right length for a secure hold
  • Not too thin holders if your breasts are a little heavier


Personally, I am not a fan of plus size bikinis, because the bikini bottoms look a bit like pampers in my eyes and only unnecessarily highlight the small and large cushions.
For example here:ASOS CURVE shaping bikini bottoms with a high waist and contrasts

I prefer to wear a bathing dress, it makes me feel wonderfully feminine and well packaged:

Go out, swim and look fabulous in plus size swimwear!

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
