10 Swimsuits That Take Off 10 Pounds
Just some little optical illusions
You’ve got the tickets booked and the mai tais in your dreams. Now all you need is the perfect suit for your upcoming travels (whether you're headed across the globe or just to the local watering hole). Here are some slenderizing options to consider in your shopping quest.
A MIXED-PRINT ONE PIECE
Thanks to contrasting side panels, your curves will be both defined and supported.
Swim Sexy ($59)
A PLUNGING-V ONE-PIECE
Ladies with slightly smaller busts, this one’s for you. Draw the eye upward toward the collarbone, avoiding any insecurity areas you may have below.
Bleu Rod Beattie ($119)
A CUTOUT ONE-PIECE
The same logic applies to full suits with delicate keyholes--say around the ribcage: They visually whittle your middle.
A RUCHED ONE-PIECE
Don’t call ’em Miraclesuits for nothing. These little numbers with gathered fabric suck in your tummy and create gentle curves.
A BELTED ONE-PIECE
Other curve boosters can come in the form of tiny little belts, which are both super trendy and super slimming.
Whether you’re working one piece or two, look for bold patterns, which are surprisingly slimming (as opposed to micro prints that can create width).
Mod Cloth ($60)
