Velvet has been super hot over the winter, and it's not stopping there. Enter: velvet swimsuits for your spring and summer pool days. Now, this isn't the silk or cotton velvet you're familiar with; it's a nylon and lycra stretch velvet that can move with you and quickly dries after getting wet. Have we captured your curiosity? Whether you're ready to dive in head first, or want to dip your toes into this luxurious trend, we've scoured the web to bring you the velvet swimsuits at every price point.
Finding a one-piece swimsuit for your body type can already be difficult, but when your bust size is DD and larger, it can seem an insurmountable feat. Can any of these trendy bathings suits actually support us busty gals frolicking around the beach or pool party? The short answer: Yes, thank goodness. Many bra and swim retailers are realizing that underwire one-piece swimsuits and other styles for bigger boobs are necessary, so we're getting super cute and hot options that actually fit. Try one of these, and feel secure in your next pool volleyball match.
