The stormy shade of gray is flattering for all body types and a great alternative to the typical black swimsuit. The black swimsuit is a comfort zone, but when you have a plus sized body and you wear an all black swimsuit without much skin showing, the look can be more like whale than anything else. Black can be too much black, and it requires some skin to show to break up the harsh color.
Gray on the other hand, is a little softer and easier on the eyes. This is good news for the plus size woman as it creates a sleeker slimmer look. You have so many options with black from light silver-gray to slate or pewter and charcoal gray. Check out the different shades and see what flatters your skin tone and body the best.
This swimsuit shows that breaking away from the classic black swimsuit can be a good thing. I found this swimsuit on Zilily. Zulily features boutique finds and has adorable maternity swimsuits for women. You can find great savings and new items every day featured on the Zulily website.
This gray swimsuit is sweet. It is by Pez D’or called the black Maldivas maternity one-piece. PezDor has been putting out premium maternity swimwear for years and their brand is featured on many swimsuit online stores. Your baby bump will be well concealed here with this darker gray color and sweet bow to distract eye attention up.
Gray flatters a pear-shaped body
If you are bigger on the bottom and smaller on the top this figure concern is coined pear shape. A gray swimsuit such as the one shown here can be very flattering on a pear-shaped body. To balance out larger hips and bottoms look for wide-set straps and jeweled detail at the center of the suit that accent the chest. This draws the eyes attention away from the lower body and upwards towards the check area which gives you a surgery free body-lift effect.
