And for my plus size ladies, this African print one-piece swimsuit is available in plus size (up to 3x). I recommend sizing up.

 

 

 

2. Backless High-Cut Ankara Bathing Suit by NJunicorn

One caution, if you are tall, say greater than 5’6, this swimsuit might be a little too tight around the thighs/pelvic area. For the price and quality of the product, I’ll give this African print one-piece swimsuit a 4.5-star rating. This nylon and spandex ankara swimwear will quickly become one of your favorite bathing suits.
