What woman doesn’t want to create the illusion of a tiny waistline? One of our favorite tricks is to go for a suit with a deep V neck, like this asymmetrical maillot. It breaks up the line of your body (great for apple shapes) and highlights your neck and chest instead of your tummy.
A bathing suit with tight stretch is what you’re after.Miraclesuits are made with the crème de la crème of slimming fabrics (Lycra Xtra Life spandex) and in visually pleasing cuts.
Even if you’re pretty straight up and down, you don’t need to rely on a push-up bra to fake a few curves. Instead, try a one-piece in a graphic print or look for a suit with ruching in the midsection. Both will visually fill out your shape without any heavy lifting.
If you have a long torso and short legs, the most flattering swim style is also the most on-trend this season: high-waisted bottoms.
Bandeaus can get tricky: Without enough support, they’re basically floaties when the next wave hits. Instead, opt for a style that has boning on the sides. It will keep everything in place, and you won’t have to worry about constantly adjusting.

The number one rule for the generously endowed: Go for underwire. Luckily, there are plenty of styles that don’t scream lingerie section (or come with unnecessary padding). Another great tip for busty gals is to opt for a thick waistband on the bottom, which helps balance a bigger top.
It’s nothing short of fabulous that Sports Illustrated included its first-ever plus-size models this past February. But that still doesn’t mean you’ll have the same confidence when rocking a super-sexy cutout bikini.
