SINK OR SLIM
The best in figure-flattering swimwear
The quest to find a swimsuit that tightens, lifts and flattens may seem herculean. But thanks to new shapewear technology, it’s now easier than ever to play up your assets (and downplay your flaws). Here, a suit for every figure:
For a large bust Using the Spanx technology you know and love, the new Bra-llelujah! one-piece ($107) sucks you in and gives support thanks to subtle underwire cups (available in sizes up to 18DD). Miraclesuit’s Sonatina one-piece ($142) also features a chest-flattering shape with a V neckline and thick straps for full control.
To hide a tummy Disguise a bigger belly with the Lolita top by Magicsuit ($120). Cascading ruffles minimize the waist, plus it easily transitions into a shirt for a post-beach barbecue. Victoria’s Secret’s Firm Control Convertible one-piece ($170) also does stomach-concealing wonders, but our favorite might be Old Navy’s Control Max suit ($40), which features slimming ruching and a vintage silhouette.
For ample butts and thighs Combine Spanx’s Long & Lean Tankini ($77) with the full-coverage Skirtini ($59) for an adorable ensemble that draws the eye up. For more versatility, try Eres’s adjustable suits (starting at $323), developed to provide more or less coverage depending on how you scrunch them.
