Mid and Plus Size Black One Piece Swimsuit
I’ve had great luck trying mid and plus size black one piece swimsuits this year! That paired with some of my favorite plus size black bathing suits from past seasons still being available makes this a pretty great list to shop from! You can use the links below to shop directly or scroll a bit to learn more about each bathing suit.
Walmart V Wire Shirred One Piece Swimsuit
This $25 swimsuit has a gorgeous v cut out on the chest and a cute scoop back. It has adjustable straps that are a bit thin (my only complaint!) and has sewn in cups for breast support. The black bathing suit is shirred around the waistline, which helps to create gorgeous shape on your waistline. It’s available at Walmart in sizes S-3X. I find it to run true to size.
Old Navy Belted Crochet One Piece Swimsuit
Before you yell at me, I know this photo is a brown swimsuit. Honestly, I tried to photoshop it black but I’m not that talented. Anyways, this belted crochet one piece swimsuit has a sewn in shelf bra, a bit of a scoop back and the straps are not adjustable. The outside material is a bit itchy, but the lining on the inside of the swimsuit is smooth. This Old Navy swimsuit comes in sizes S-4X and I find it to be true to size. fIt’s $55, but you should buy it on sale. Old Navy is notorious for sales. Also, if you want to make it a whole look, grab the matching sarong.
TA3 Plungey One Piece Bathing Suit
There are a few styles of black one piece swimsuits at TA3, but I want to talk about the Plungey! This v neck black one piece swimsuit has a corset style technology that supports and smooth your stomach while creating a “snatched” look. It has adjustable straps, offers full booty coverage and is made of an ultra matte fabric (looks great as a bodysuit!). It’s a splurge at $178, but you’re paying for the technology and high quality material. The TA3 Plungey is available in sizes XS-4X, regular and short length.
Bravissimo Santa Maria One Piece Swimwear
If you’re looking for a black bra sized swimsuits that don’t have built in underwire, the Santa Maria is perfect for you! The straps tie at the top of your shoulder which allows them to be adjustable. Many reviews call this the best swimsuit for long torso gals. This Bravissimo swimsuit is bra sized. I took it in my normal band size and down in my cup size. If you don’t know your bra size, be sure to schedule a virtual fitting! This swimsuit is $112.
Cancun Built In Underwire Swimsuit
Another great Bravissimo black swimsuit is the Cancun! It has hidden built in underwire under the swimsuit. This allows you to get the pull on swimsuit appearance with the support of underwire cups. It’s got a great ribbed texture fabric. The swimsuit is bra size and available online for $128.
Daci Plus Size One Piece Vintage Ruched Swimwear
If you’re an Amazon gal, then you need to add this $35 Daci swimsuit into your cart! It’s one of my favorite Amazon plus size one piece swimsuits. It has adjustable strap, as well as an adjustable band in the back that adds some extra support and lift for your breasts. The front detailing has a tie that can be tightened to show some cleavage or loosened for more moderate coverage. This Amazon black one piece swimsuit comes in sizes 12-26 and runs true to size.
Elomi Bazaruto Wireless One Piece Swimsuit
Elomi is a favorite brand amongst myself and my fuller figured besties, and their swim is no exception. This wireless one piece swimsuit is bra sized with a built in shelf bra. It’s a beautifully crochet texture, but smooth on the inside. You can find it at HerRoom for $98.
Mid and Plus Size Black Bikini
I love a good black bikini moment! They can be paired with a statement sarong, wide leg pant or bright button down top to become a whole beach look. Keep reading for my thoughts on my some great plus size black bikinis or use the tool below to quickly shop some options.
Kisscynest Plus Size High Waisted Swimsuit Bathing Suit
This might be my favorite black plus size bikini swimsuit in my closet. It provides coverage for my chest and pretty great support given that it’s wireless. This $30 Amazon bikini has a unique tie around element attached on each side which allows you to tie to the front or back, lower down like I have it, or directly under your bust for additional band support. The bottoms keep my belly supported and held in without digging into my body. I am wearing an XL in this plus size Amazon bikini and it’s available sizes XL-4X
Daci Plus Size Ruffle High Waisted Bathing Suit
This two piece plus size bathing suit is so fun with the ruffles! The straps are adjustable, as well as the center of the bikini, which allows you to make it a v neck or keep it full coverage on the chest. This bikini has fairly full coverage on the booty and on the hips. As far as sizing goes, the bottoms are a bit generous, so I would take your true size or size down if you are in between. You can find this $35 Amazon bikini in sizes large-24 plus, I am wearing XL.
Show Me Your Mumu Destin Top + Del Ray Bottom
This black bikini from Show Me Your Mumu has been a favorite! The silhouette is chic and the material is ultra comfy. The top is a little on the smaller size given my chest volume, but it’s fine for casual beach days or laying by the pool. I would suggest ordering your usual size, unless you are busty, then size up in the top. You can shop the Destin Top for $68 and the Del Ray Bottoms for $78. This mid size black bikini is available in sizes XS-XXL.
Eloquii High Waisted Bikini with Rosette
Eloquii has some gorgeous and trendy plus size swimsuits this year! While I’ve tried a few, this bikini is one that wasn’t available when I placed my order. Based on the way the one piece swimsuits fit me, I would suggest ordering your normal size in the Sweetheart Neckline Bikini Top and High Waisted Bikini Bottom with Rosette. They are available in sizes 14-32. PS- Eloquii is known for big sales, so I would order this plus size black bikini when it’s at least 30% off, it not more!
Londre Sustainable Bikini
This woman owned, ethically and sustainably made swimwear company creates incredible high quality swimsuits. Unfortunately the top isn’t quite big boob friendly enough for me, but if you’re not quite as busty, be sure to give it a try! It’s got a nice thick band for support and wide set straps. The bottoms have a great V shape and ruching detail on the top of the booty. I am wearing XXL in both pieces. You can find the $79 High Leg Scrunch Bottom and $89 The Sport Scoop Top in sizes XS-4XL.
Mid and Plus Size Black Strapless Bandeau Swimsuit
In this section we’re going to look at strapless plus size black one piece swimsuits and bandeau bikinis. Personally, as someone with a fuller bust, strapless swimsuits can be a little tricky to wear for more than just lounging by the pool. I like to find ones with built in underwire to give some security while I move around. Below you’ll find both wireless and underwire black strapless swimsuit options, pending what you suits your needs.
Yonique Plus Size High Waisted Bandeau Bikini Swimwear
This plus size black bandeau swimsuit has straps that are adjustable and removable, so you can decide if you want it strapless or with some added support. The top has a nice, thick band on the bottom and an additional band on top that is adjustable. The bikini bottoms feel supportive without cutting into me. This $31 plus size Amazon bikini is available in sizes 12 plus-22 plus and I ordered a 14 plus.
Panache Anya Riva Twist Bandeau Underwire Bikini Top
Panache is known to be one the best bra sized swimsuit companies in the business! While I haven’t tried out this black strapless bikini top, I have worn other Panache swimsuits and can speak to the high quality and longevity of the swimwear. This top would be great to mix and match with your favorite bikini bottoms in your closet. You can order this $70 underwire top from Bare Necessities and HerRoom. It is bra sized, so be sure to set up a free fitting if you don’t know your correct bra size.
Good American Side Tie One Piece
I had a fabulous strapless bikini from Good American a few summers ago and I was hoping I could find it available somewhere online still… While I couldn’t find that, I did find this black strapless one piece swimsuit with cut outs from Good American! It’s $108 and available in sizes XS-5XL. If sizing is anything like the bikini, I would try one size up.
Anne Cole Mesh Strapless One Piece Swimsuit
I haven’t tried this particular Anne Cole swimsuit, but did have some great luck last summer with others! Personally, I found the sizing to be all over the place, so I would save yourself some time and order a few sizes at one time and return what doesn’t fit. Generally speaking, I did size up most of the time. You can find this in sizes 6-16 for $108 and sizes 16W-24W for $122. I know what you’re thinking reading that sentence… Trust me when I say I emailed their team at length about this last year and was told that it would be addressed.
Aria Botticelli Underwire Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit
To be honest, this is the first time I’ve heard of the brand Aria Botticelli. But I couldn’t resist sharing this stunning strapless black one piece swimsuit with you! You can find this $150 swimsuit at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus in sizes 8W-20W.
Mid and Plus Size Black Halter Swimsuit
I am sharing both traditional halter tops and swimsuits that are “halter passing” without pulling at your neck. I know not everyone has the neck issues, but for those gals with fuller busts, halters can be so painful! Scroll down to check out a few of the best black plus size halter swimsuits or shop directly below.
Tempt Me Crisscross One Piece Halter Swimsuit Tummy Control
This Amazon one piece swimsuit has been a favorite of the SBE Instagram community for a few years now. I personally suggest sizing up, especially if you have a longer torso. You can shop this $34 black swimsuit from Amazon in sizes XS-XXL and 18-24.
Eloquii Twist Halter Swimsuit with Underwire Detail
If you’re looking for a trendy plus size black swimsuit, Eloquii is here for you with this halter top one piece. I usually take my true size in Eloquii swimsuits, but I have not tried this specific one. Also, Eloquii is known for massive sales, so I would wait to buy this swimsuit until a sale happens. This $150 black halter swimsuit is available in sizes 14-32.
Sovoyontee Plus Size High Waisted Halter Top Swimsuit
I have ordered this swimsuit and it was not a fuller bust friendly halter top option. But with that said, if you have smaller breasts than I do, it’s a potential option for a halter top bikini! I found the bottoms to fit true to size and I loved the tie around detail. You can find this halter top swimsuit on Amazon in sizes XL-4XL for $32.
Mid and Plus Size Black Mesh Swimsuit
On the hunt for a black swimsuit with some mesh details? I don’t blame you! There. is something so chic and sexy about a black mesh swimsuit.
Tempt Me Mesh High Neck Monokini Swimsuit
If you like the idea of a plunging neckline but want the security of a full swimsuit, this mesh one piece is a great option! It’s got a nice band that runs under the chest for some breast support and claps behind the back. It looks like a halter, but it is not. This see-through mesh style one piece swimsuit can be found on Amazon in sizes XXS-XL and 16-26 for $33. I first tried this in XL and my breasts were not having it. Once I tried the 16, it was a great fit!
TA3 Zippy Swimsuit
High quality, sexy one piece mesh swimsuit with a playful zipper… yes please! The TA3 Mesh One Piece swimsuit is putting off the perfect combination of mesh and swimsuit with this style. The back corset piece goes over a mesh underlay and the front zipper is centered between a deep mesh v neck. I would suggest your true size or if you aren’t as busty, a size down. This $178 black mesh swimsuit comes in sizes XS-4X.
Tempt Me One Shoulder Cutout Mesh Bathing Suit
While this is a bit risky for my gals with a fuller chest, it’s a budget friendly one shoulder swimsuit option to check out. I would personally feel more comfortable with the “safety strap” (aka the removable strap) on because of the weight of my chest. The pops of mesh under the bust and on the opposite hip create a really beautiful shape on your stomach area. This $34 swimsuit comes in sizes XS-XXL and 18-22. I found it to be true to size but would size up if you have a really long torso, as that was a bit snug but doable on my body.
Mid and Plus Size Black Thong Swimsuit
If anyone finds other black thong swimsuits out there, will you let a gal know? I have. the swimsuit below, but could not find any other cute plus size black thong swimsuit options! Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places…
The Cheeky Bikini
I’m sure you couldn’t tell by the name… But this small business swimsuit brand is known for having cheeky swimsuits. You can decide which level of cheekiness is best for you by checking out their selection of cheeky bikini bottoms. The bottoms are around $40 and come in sizes XS-3XL.

Lane Bryant No-Wire Blouson Swim Tankini Top
This is a great tankini option if you are looking for something that doesn’t hug your stomach. It has a draped midsection with a banded bottom to keep it from rolling up. It is wireless with adjustable straps and light lining. You can find this $73 wireless tankini top in sizes 10-40.

I think this Old Navy swim skirt is so sassy! I love that there is a little leg slit on one side, but you still get great coverage for your booty and upper legs. You can find this sarong swim skirt for $35 in sizes XS-4X, found the skirt to be true to size and have it in XL. Be sure to buy it when it’s on sale because it happens so frequently!

This Walmart swim skirt reminds me of a tennis skirt look, but instead of built in shorts you have a swim brief under. This $16 black swim skirt is available in sizes XS-2X.

This $65 swimsuit from Old Navy hugs your body throughout the dress and uses powermesh lining to support and hold all of your body curves. The skirt part hits just past your booty and has a faux wrap detail. The dress is available in sizes XS-4X and I find it to fit true to size.
Torrid Wireless Long Lattice Front Swim Dress With Brief
I love the lace up detailing on the chest! This plus size swim dress has straps that are adjustable and can be worn multiple ways. Under the skirt part you will find power mesh to support your curves. The dress looks to hit just above the knees. You can shop this black swim dress at Torrid for $109 in sizes 10-30.
