Delta Burke Plus Size Swimwear is an extremely popular line of plus size swimwear. It’s really no wonder, since the founder is none other than that “Designing Woman”, Delta Burke. From winning Miss Florida America in 1974, to the role she made famous on Designing Women, Delta Burke has accomplished a lot during her career. However, her biggest accomplishment may be coming to terms with her weight and self-image and putting that experience to use helping plus size women enjoy beautiful fashions.
As a type 2 diabetes sufferer, Delta Burke has struggled with weight gain. During the last seasons of Designing Women, Deltas added weight had become quite apparent. After the show ended she spent a lot of time getting her diabetes under control and more importantly, realizing that she was a full-figured woman and being proud of it. She then embarked on a new project to help other plus size women accept their bodies and accentuate their curvy figures with bold designs the plus size fashion industry had not seen before.
Delta Burke was able to bring her own personal experience with being a full-figured woman to her clothing and swimwear designs. Attention to slimming techniques such as color blocking and slimming stripes along the sides of many of her swimsuits are evidence of her plus size fashion sense. Many Delta Burke swimsuits have A-Line cuts to further create a slimming effect. The beautiful pastel colors in the Delta Burke Swim Collection are a hallmark of her swimwear designs.
Delta Burke swimwear also pays close attention to comfort. Many Delta Burke swimsuits are completely lined with control netting for a complete feeling of support. Soft cups in the bra provide important comfort up top. The fabrics on Delta Burke swimwear are blended to provide both stretch as well as to be fast drying.
