A perfect retro inspired swimsuit

This swimsuit pictured here is a perfect example of how Everything but Water! The model is gorgeous and the swimsuit is gorgeous as well.  I love this swimsuit for several reasons because it really flatters the figure. Here’s why.

First of all, a solid deep jewel tone color is a true winner if you are trying to look skinny. This color is so deep and vibrant yet it gives the same exact figure slimming visual effect that a black swimsuit would. When in doubt, go with one color.

Second of all, this retro look is inspiring and the great thing about it, is that it is really just a skirted swimsuit. But, instead of looking frumpy she looks retro – brilliant! Take note plus size women and follow this tip. When looking for a skirted swimsuit that covers hips thighs and buttocks, go for a retro-inspired look. This will camouflage the fact you are wearing a skirted suit and simple look like you are wearing a retro-inspired swimsuit.

Lastly, this figure flatters her figure in every possible way. The halter straps off to the sides are flattering on big arms. The sweetheart chest-line is adorable. The sexy ruching on this swimsuit and seam up the side of the swimsuit makes the waist look totally thin. Finally, the way the skirt swoops and comes up at the sides is fantastic as it really gives a sassy look that makes her legs look thinner and longer. For a curvacious woman, this swimsuit would be a total winner. Nice!

Purple Retro Swimsuit



Are you trying to hide that little tummy pouch that is either left over after you’ve had a baby, or growing in early pregnancy? You would think that wearing a dress, skirt or smock top swimsuit is the right thing. Well, it is the right thing but there is also another way out. To hide the tummy you can try this simple approach. It works well because it gives the illusion of a smaller tummy by minimization and distraction, but it does not involve the obvious look of wearing a “hide that fat” style.

Go for one color to smooth the entire picture

All one color is a great way to hide a pooch. The smoothing over all effect can minimize pooch of the tummy. It is sort of toned done and blotted out by a smooth, unfettered, all one color swimsuit style. Besides having a swimsuit that is all one color, it’s good to avoid clutter and confusion with your accessories. Just as the swimsuit is one neutral soothing tone, you will want to tone down your back, coverup and bag to create a very simple look. The clean lines will visually slim you.

Go for a darker color to visually slim body

Darker color can help smooth and hide your after baby tummy pooch. If you are big and beautiful, black can look harsh and make you look sort of like a beached whale. The black fabric, when there is a lot of it, looks too harsh. If you are smaller framed but just have only the pooch, black is fine because there is less of it to look at.

Jewel colors, the darker ones, or neutral darks, really look great on the larger woman with a tummy pooch. You can try a dark purple like this one, but it that looks to Barney-like go for a deep maroon, navy blue, emerald-green, darker gray, darker browns or tan, darker gray, or darker khaki green. All of these colors slim you as well as the black but lighten up the look at bit.

Pay for a control fabric to control bulge

Pay for a Miracle suit type fabric. This can make a big difference in controlling the pooch. Thin fabric will just go over the pooch and outline it. Control fabric actually smooths it in and down. The more expensive swimsuits are what you will need to pay for here. Make sure the Lycra is very sturdy and on the thicker side. Take care to hand wash or lay our to dry so that you don’t wreck the elasticity of the fabric and it lasts longer and controls effectively.

Draw attention elsewhere and upward on the body

If you have a gorgeous chest this is a no-brainer. Draw attention to that area because it gives you the perfect bait and switch to visually minimize the pooch. If your chest is average or smaller sized, try some ruching or details on the fabric up top that makes the eye go upward. For example this lady has a nice empire waist going on that draws focus up and minimizes the tummy This swimsuit is by Lands End and is actually advertised as a tummy control swimsuit.

Check Lands End website or catalog for other ideas. Their swimsuits are but at the same time they do cover conservatively and this is exactly what you need when concealing a pooch or excess flab lingering from pregnancy.

Here is another attractive swimsuit from ASOS online. What I like about this swimsuit is that the interesting cutouts to the side can help make short legs look visually longer.  The leggy look continues up through the waist with this styling of the swimsuit and this optical illusion really works!

Swimsuit that makes legs look longer and slimmer

Priced at 60 dollars this beautiful swimsuit from Asos features a halterneck style with a deep v-neck front. It has self-tie string fastenings for an adjustable fit. The cut out inserts to the sides help to visually elongate the legs. The cutouts also detract from any cellulite or skin flaws on the legs since it is a visual distraction. The plunge v-neck enhances a smaller size decolete. The back is a full flattering cut. I love the magenta purple color that pops yet slenderizes with the dark tone. Beautiful swimsuit, incredible style!
