Here at The Curvy Fashionista, we LOVEEEEE plus size swimwear! From plus size bikinis to one-pieces, we love the wide variety of plus size swimsuits available to us. But what about those who love a bit more coverage, like plus size swim shorts?

Today, we are sharing a roundup of plus size swim shorts, for those days at the lake or in your backyard, where you’re moving around and being active. You can definitely rock ANY swimsuit without shorts, but sometimes a busy day means you need a bit more coverage.

And it is really all about the options for swim, right? Sometimes we want to playfully layer up, are not *ready* for the bikini life, or just prefer a bit more modesty. Regardless of the reason, there are options for you to play in.

In usual TCF fashion, we are here to help… Below are our top recommendations for swim shorts to prevent chub rub and to keep it cute.
