Five Sexy Swimwear Styles That Slim – And Not A Boring Black One Piece In Sight!

We get it. You want to look your best poolside, but sadly you forgot the memo about your summer prep countdown and are now freaking about your upcoming big reveal. If the thought of stripping down to next to nothing doesn’t panic you, then we’ve got to be honest, we hate you a little bit.

We’d love to be that confident. We all want to be the girl everyone envies for having so much fun without caring about what she looks like, but for the self-confessed vain among us (with a healthy share of insecurities), we’ll be shopping these flattering swimsuit styles.

Trend trickery is what we’re pedalling this season so if you’re looking to tone your problem zones, nip in that waist and avert attention to your best bits, then read on. We’ve found the ultimate flattering, body contouring, illusion-creating, slimming swimsuits that you’ll be happy posing in for your next envy-inducing Insta update. Not that we care about being popular. We’re too busy enjoying ourselves.

If you need a miracle…

Miraclesuit is your secret weapon. All their swimsuit styles have built in tummy control, support for full busts, layering where it counts and are fashion friendly too. The Dip Dye Centerfold Underwired Firm Control Swimsuit (try saying that after a Mimosa) works wonders at slimming down with its supportive fabric and flattering wrap design. Confidence comes with a price tag of $217.50.

Curvy contours

Got curves? We’re jealous. Cleavage is having a comeback. Thanks to Efron and The Rock, this summer has some serious Baywatch vibes and we couldn’t resist this red one piece from Coco Reef. With a plunge cut to show off your bust and their patented shapewear design that smoothes your curves and lifts your butt, this one piece will see you turn heads for all the right reasons. Contours by Coco Reef Emerald Cut One Piece Swimsuit $147.00.

Under wraps

Wrap style swimsuits use excess fabric to give you more of a waist and draw the eye into thinking you’ve got hourglass curves Monroe would die for. This simple trick is the reason Diane Von Furstenburg dresses are a must have for any girl with a woman-shaped body. Wrap flattery is where it’s at. We found this awesome Hatlerneck Sweetheart style from KamaliKulture by Norma Kamali. Stylish, chic and slimming, what’s not to love? Only $65.99.

Drape it

Sometimes more is less. It works for drapery. Ruffled swimwear styles create volume and while it may sound like a contradiction, playing with volume in the right places can actually have a slimming effect. Go for styles with waterfall fabric in the center and the eye will automatically skim your tummy. We love this citrus inspired Capri Ruffle one piece from Show Me Your Mumu, for only $148.00.

Plunge In

Plunge styles are slimming because they take the eye down and away from hips you’d rather hide. Whether you go for an extreme plunge like The Alexandra halterneck swimsuit one piece by Alexandra or play with a zipper style, you’re bound to feel like a slim thing once you’ve taken the plunge, on sale now for $95.00.

    Nothing will make me look slim.

  • Patti Roper

    Why do they use skinny models when advertising swimsuits that help slim? I guess it’s like when they use 18 year old models to advertise anti-wrinkle creams.

  • Ursula Brunetti

    So classic isn’t it?
