We at WYV are gearing up for the 2nd Annual Golden Confidence Pool Party this weekend in Los Angeles, California, put on by body-positive blogger Essie Golden with guest hosts Sarah Rae and Chante B. While looking for our own suits, we uncovered the cutest swimsuit trend, which is based around one of our favorite things: food!
With temperatures soaring, we encourage you to #DropTheTowel with us. Need a little inspiration? Try these food-inspired Swimsuits. We think you’ll eat them right up!
Try these tart, refreshing two-piece swimsuits on for size.
Rue107 serves a citrusy delight with these gorgeous two pieces. Rue107 is a New York based, size-friendly brand, Black-owned and operated by Haitian-born designer Marie Jean-Baptiste. Baptiste describes the designs as being reflective of her Creole heritage, with vibrant colors and patterns that are also influenced by the multiculti metropolis of New York.
Go ahead and tell everyone you’re “Not Sorry” in these Lemonade-inspired swim suits.
Check out these yummy one-piece swimsuits.
While we feel that every body is bikini ready, two-pieces are not part of everyone’s comfort zone. Don’t worry, you can still be a body-positive warrior and dress as modestly as you choose! For those who feel more comfortable in a one-piece, there are other juicy options. ModCloth serves up some easy choices.
If you like pina coladas, Forever21 and CowCow certainly have you covered. Forever21 offers a super comfy two piece, while CowCow offers several pineapple prints in their signature budget one-piece cut.
Food-inspired swimsuits go beyond the tropics.
Got a hankering for something a bit more substantial? The foodie trend extends beyond just fruit. Ice cream, donuts, burgers and pizza all make appearances.
Size Queen, a Portland-based company, deploys the donut print beyond poolside fashions too. The company is a small, independent, queer femme-owned, plus-size-centric business with sizing that goes from 0 to 8x and beyond. Owner Bertha Pearl prides herself in her custom masterpieces and is happy to create original pieces to fit everyone’s bodies and needs.
Food-inspired swimsuits aren’t just for women and femmes.
The fun isn’t just for women and femmes, though. For people who feel more comfortable in a pair of swim trunks, there are options, as well. Peter Millar and Rage On have super festive party trunks, however their sizes do not extend into plus.
