Today it is cold and rainy and bleak in Chicago. Still, I fantasize about warmer weather and honey the latest swimsuit collection by Monif C makes me yearn for summer heat and sand between my toes.

Monaco plus size swimsuit

Love the yellow “Monaco” ruched swimsuit. The color is HOT, the teeny cut-out is an adorable touch, and these straps are built to support the girls. Haaaay!

Catalina plus size swimsuit

I want to buy the “Catalina” draped swimsuit and just wear it as a top with flared jeans and fabulous jewelry. I love everything about it! If there’s one suit in the collection that’s a MUST for me, it’s this one.

Barbados plus size swimsuit

Can we talk about the “Barbados” plunge V suit? It’s SO sexy. Love the waist detail. This is made for fun in the sun on South Beach or something. Love it

For bellas who dare to bare, there’s the “Capri” bikini which has the kind of fit a full figured girl can fall in love with. Sexy without too much spillage. I like and I would rock it! And for mesh-lovers there’s the “Belize” suit with strategically placed cutouts.

These suits are smokin! All I need is a sarong, my sandals, and my sunscreen. Oh, and an airline ticket to take me out of cold and bleak Chicago.

If you’re on Twitter you should follow MonifCPlusSizes – wouldn’t it be awesome to see suits like hers at Lane Bryant? Retweet if you agree!

Which suit do you love the most?

Just asked Monif C herself and she says: "some will work better than others...i'm busty JJ cup, would wear barbados, belize, leave catalina for DD and below." Hope that helps!

Oooh, thank you. Also Monif C is a SWEETHEART! I am so excited about these suits. I have been wearing speedos for years because I couldn't find plus suits that worked on top heavy (H cup over here) hourglassy figures.

I am a part of the Monif C mailing list and squeeled like a pig when I saw her new swim collection, the Belize and that Bikini rocked my world. I love that her collections offer something for mid-twenties plus sized ladies who want sex appeal in their fashion. You know you've hit the jackpot when your boyfriend says he doesn't care that the swim suit is $160, he likes he likes! I am sad though that is seems this is the only option for women who want good tailoring (ie. support), sexiness and high fashion. I have searched for other plus sized collections and been disapppointed by thier drabiness...Not Monif C.!

The Monaco swimsuit is my favorite out of the three. The ruching really pulls in the tummy and the wide halter straps provide great support for plus size women. Love the color as well! Another great swimsuit that I came across is the Miraclesuit. They have a great selection at Many of these suits provide tummy control and support.

I absolutely LOVE Monif C swimwear. Finding the suits in a decent price range however... well. I've found several similar cute suits all over but the least expensive have been at Lane Bryant and swimsuitsforall. Thanks for sharing! -Anna
