Hot weather is officially here. With sweltering heat comes the need to immerse one’s self in a large body of water (while paying attention to social distancing etiquette, of course). Since skinny dipping is out for most of us, a good pair of big & tall swim trunks are a must.
The big question: are there options out there that offer a range of sizes along with styles you’ll actually want to wear? The answer is yes. Read our list below and find your favorite pair.
Known for their great-fitting underwear, Bear Skn got into the swimwear game earlier this year with a selection of big & tall swim trunks and briefs. Go with the Oops All Bearies print (seen above) if you want to stand out, or try the Bear Hunter Camo (below) for a more classically cool look.
Don’t want a print? Solid colors are available in shorts and briefs as well.
TomboyX makes some great gender-inclusive underwear, and their swimwear collection is just as great. With bright colors and distinct prints and UPF 50 stretch fabric, these looks are hard to beat. Choose between their 4.5 inch shorts and their 7 inch board shorts in a variety of colors and prints.
Target’s Goodfellow & Co. and Original Use brands are stepping up with some fun prints and modern big & tall swim trunks. You’ll find swim trunks, board shorts, and hybrid swim shorts available in a variety of lengths. Prices from $13.99.
Chubbies is a brand we all agree we’d wear the hell out of if they offered more of their products in extended sizing. The company is taking a step in the right direction, offering select shorts and swim trunks to 3XL. They’re bright, they’re colorful, they’re fun, and their inseams start at 5.5′.
ASOS is classing up big & tall summer swimwear with their two piece swim short prints, giving you a top and a bottom (sold separately) that allow you to put together an entire look. If this isn’t quite your style, shop the rest of their carefully curated selection of pastels, floral prints, solid color and runner swim shorts with prices from $11.50.
If you’re a fan of a college or professional sports team, Kohl’s probably has swimming trunks for you. You’ll find sizes to 6XB, though the pickings in the more extended sizes are a bit slim. The retailer also carries Nike Big & Tall trunks, which you won’t currently find on Nike’s own website. Prices from around $20.
As we come across more brands, we’ll add to this article, so check back for more options throughout the summer. Which big & tall swim shorts are your favorite? Tell us in the comments let us know @chubstr on your favorite social network.
