Don't let your size dampen your spirit to enjoy the warm and sunny summer. The fashion industry realize that people on the heavier side, too, love dressing up in the current trends. This has led them to design trendy plus size summer outfits that allow them to dress comfortably and enjoy the holiday season.
Summer is a time to relax, lay back, and soak in the warm sun. A summer wardrobe often reflects the spirit of season with bold and playful colors making their presence felt.
While petite women get all set to flaunt their hot and skimpy collection, heavier women may cringe due to the limited availability of summer outfits in their size. Well, you don't have to worry anymore and get ready to use the ideas mentioned here to beat the heat.


The outfit needn't be plain and boring with just loose pants and over sized shirts. Go chic with cropped pants or shorts and cool cotton t shirts in pastel shades, wear free-flowing skirts or loose dresses that don't stick to your body, but make it look slimmer, or team up loose flannel pants with cute tank tops to keep it simple, stylish, and summery.

Capris or Cropped Pants

Capris are calf-length pants, that are an ultimate epitome of comfort. These are available in denim and stretch cotton. White capris with a loose floral top teamed with a hat is the perfect attire to lounge with friends during hot summer afternoons. Heavier women benefit from wearing capris as they hide their problem areas of large hips and flabby waists.

Cotton T-Shirts

Cotton T-shirts with different sleeve lengths are a great option to stay cool. Wear a sleeveless, V-neck cotton T-shirt with a pair of denims for a very casual, laid back look.
Half-sleeved cotton T-shirts with knee length skirts, complete with stockings is a great attire for office. Throw a blazer or cardigan over a cute cotton T-shirt and you are ready to brave the cool summer evenings.


Free-flowing long skirts are ideal for summers as they do not cling to your body. Straight skirts look great with gladiator sandals and can be worn semi-formally for the evenings. Short skirts, that end just above the knees may not be your best outfit as the skirt may highlight your chubby thighs.


If you are able to choose the right style of shorts, this can be one of the most comfy outfits, ever.
Instead of going for Daisy Duke style, go for Bermuda shorts or stretch cotton ones. Due to the voluminous nature of these shorts, they can easily deviate attention from your flabby thighs.

Little Black Dress

You obviously need something chic to dress up for formal occasions during summer.
A little black dress would be just perfect for those happening night outs with friends or a romantic date with your boyfriend. However, make sure your little dress is not too little. Wear high heels to make you look taller and slimmer. Throw a stole or shawl over your shoulder, if you have particularly large arms.


Swimsuits in plus sizes are really for those bold women who do not mind showing off their flab. Tankinis, swim shorts, and skirtinis are the most popular styles in plus size women's swimwear. If you feel uncomfortable, cover up your lower body with a sarong in bold colors to get over it.
Thus, invest in an all new wardrobe with a variety of summer outfits and make a style statement this season while the sun shines bright!
