LGBTQ+ Swimwear To Rock This Summer If You’re Sick Of Being Constrained To One Look
There’s nothing like trying on bathing suits in a fluorescent-lit fitting room to make you feel self-conscious about your body. But for trans women the task of finding swimsuits that make them feel comfortable and beautiful, the task of finding beachwear can be especially hard. Especially because as of today, none of the major swimwear brands cater to them.
We dug around for cute swimwear for transwomen to rock in the summer because we should all feel beautiful in our swim and enjoy the summer waves.
Outplay describes itself as a company “without gender but a lot of heart.” The swimsuit brand works to go against dictated fashion rules and strive for comfort and the representation of diversity. Their line of swimsuits includes full coverage tops, mid-drift tops, bikinis, shorts, and jammers.

This Amsterdam-based company offers sleek, chest-flattening swimsuits that are made specifically for trans men and also offers clothing for people of different genders.

Colorful and breathable these outfits by Tomboyx have antibacterial cloth and are eco-friendly. They’re apparently not just for swimming either, with wicking material, they can also be also worn while exercising.
