I know, it’s winter. So why am I sharing plus size beach outfit ideas today?
I’m missing the beach!
So I thought what better way to bring me (and you) a little closer to the beach than to shop for plus size beach wear?
I thought it sounded like a great idea!

If you’re a plus size woman, you might think there aren’t nice options for you out there. But I’m here to tell you (and show you) that there are! You can find plus size beach dresses, plus size T-shirts, , plus size maxi dresses, and even plus size jumpsuits. You just have to know where to look!
Here are some of my favorite plus size beach outfit ideas.
Plus Size Beach T-Shirts
You can never have enough T-Shirts, in my humble opinion. And there’s nothing better to wear to the beach than a t-shirt with a cute beach saying on the front! Women’s beach t-shirts come in all sizes, and the one below runs up to an XXL.
Plus Size Blouses
I stumbled upon this Plus Size Tunic on Zulily and can I just say how much I love it? Slip it on over a cami or tank top and wa-la, you have some extra coverage without it being extra hot! Plus it’s gorgeous!
Plus Size Beach Dresses
Wearing a comfy and lightweight dress to the beach makes it so easy to be comfortable. Not to mention you can just wear your swimsuit right underneath for an easy change! Some of my favorite places to find Plus Size Beach Dresses are Jane, Zulily, Ross Dress for Less, Cents of Style and Lane Bryant.
Plus Size Jumpsuits
I thought this woven jumpsuit over at Lane Bryant looked just perfect for a relaxing day at the beach! Normally I’m not a big fan of jumpsuits (something to do with having to get entirely naked every time I pee maybe!) but I’d definitely be willing to give this one a try!
Capris and Plus size leggings are a great choice to wear to the beach. Know why? You won’t have to roll up your pants to get in the water! If dresses aren’t your thing then this is a great option. Leggings are so comfy and can be worn with an tank top, t-shirt or oversized shirt. And blue jean capris can be worn with anything from t-shirts to bathing suit tops!
Plus Size Shorts
There is a nice selection of plus size shorts nowadays, and I’m not talking the bright colored Bermuda shorts of the past either. Although if that’s your thing, go with it! You do YOU, mama! It’s just nice to have a wide range of options like the same blue jean modern shorts that everyone else is wearing.
This coral cinch-waist maxi dress is a beauty! Runs in sizes 1X-3X and is perfect for a day strolling with your toes in the water, am I right? Coral is one of my favorite colors too! One thing I like about getting clothing from Zulily is that you can find items very reasonably priced. And we know how important it is to stick to your budget when shopping for clothing.
These caps from Zulily are so great! I couldn’t help but chuckle when I saw the first one. Not only are hats great for containing wind blown beach hair, but they also help shield your face from the sun. So wearing a hat to the beach is a win-win!
Of course who goes to the beach without a beach tote? Beach bags are an absolute necessity, especially when you have kids. Because you always have to bring half the house when you go anywhere! Tote bags are kind of my thing (well that and the beach!) and this one I found at Zulily really made me smile. And want it.
I hope these plus size beach outfit ideas have you thinking about planning your next beach trip. I know I am! Which is your favorite beach wear item? Share it with us in the comments!
Remember life doesn't have to be perfect to love where you are!
