This twist top and v-bottom bikini made my Ujena makes you look slimmer and taller. The slimming bottoms are the trick. The v-cut in the front and back of the bikini is an extremely slenderizing style. These shirred bottoms have mid cut legs that will show off bigger hips nicely. The v style gives the illusion of longer legs too.

Slimming twist top and V-bottom bikini

Notice that the shirred bottom has plenty of fabric and full coverage at the sides and legs. Even with the thick sides, the v-neck style of this bikini bottom makes it look sexy. This suit is supposed to make medium and plus hips from 31 to 46 look slimmer. Ujena sells the suit in black, white and eggplant. The sizes go from extra small all the way up to size 2x.

Ujena classic Monroe top and body slimming bottom

Not only are the bottoms slimming but the top is sexy as well even though you can’t see it all from this viewpoint. The wide halter straps will lift and position your chest making it look perkier. The twist styled top looks like a sexy bandeau but the halter straps are still there to support you. The top, Ujena calls it the Monroe Top, make a chest look sexy and uplifted with optional removable padding.

This suit has all the makings of a body slimming winner. The V-style shirred bottoms, uplifting halter top, and deeper color all combine to make you look ten pounds thinner in a jiffy. I saw this suit on Ujena and also reviewed by a site called LA sensual Plus Size Lingerie. They loved this Ujena swimsuit as much as I did.

It’s by Ujena and the pieces are sold separately so you can get the perfect top and bottom for your figure. The top is called the Monroe Top and the bottoms are called the Body Slimming Bottom.

Ujena Swimwear


I recently say a cute article about environmentally friendly swimwear brands for the active girl. These stylish, sporty and environmentally friendly swimsuits were featured by the web site girls gone sporty.  The brand they were covering and said was all the rage?  It’s called Odina Swimwear.

Odina swimwear stays put

There are plenty of cute bathing suits out there but many of them don’t stay put for the true surfer girl. Swimsuits have gotten too skimpy quite frankly. If you were to go surfing in a micro bikini, you would be over exposed and constantly adjusting.  In comes the brand Odina Surf with their line of stay put swimsuits for active girls. All of their swimwear has been tested to stay put through a variety of sports activities.

Odina swimwear is environmentaqlly friendly

Not only is Odina for the active girl, it’s for the environment too.  Odina swimwear uses environmentally friendly resources and the swimsuits are made from a variety of recycled nylon and reclaimed textiles. Odina designers takes scrap and excess materials from a U.S. based factory and have it weaved together with a percentage of Lycra to turn it into a stretchy, well fitted swimsuit fabric.  Hardware and detail accents to the swimsuits are also recycled.  The swimsuit manufaturer claims to scour unused nuts and bolts to and other unique hardware that they can recycle into accents for the swimwear.

Odina sexy styles

This sexy purple Odina bikini is so hot! A double take on the bandeau style, this will be sure to make your boyfriend’s jaw drop given the feminine one shoulder style.   These bikini bottoms are also sporty and sexy, with a nice fit and no itsy bitsy side strings.  This surfer girl look is beyond hot and perfect for the sexy female athlete.   The best part is that Odina swimsuits are  functional for a variety of activities and made with environmentally friendly intentions.



Ann Taylor Loft has partnered with Ann Cole, a very famous swimsuit designer, to debut a women’s swimwear collection. The swim suits are chic and figure flattering for women, with plenty of coverage.  These swimsuit styles are California inspired yet not too skimpy as to be unwearable if you have problematic areas to minimize.

This ruched one piece swimsuit by Anne Cole for Ann Taylor is one of my favorites. It’s sexy, yet has full coverage. This suit is perfect for a woman that has a belly or love handles that make her feel self conscious. The feminine ruching at the side seams and bra cup will detract from flab as it gives a naturally casual, loose styled look to the suit.  This is a style that will conceal some extra meat on your bones. The soft looking bust with the ruching and V-neck coordinates the style and makes the tummy slenderizing style appear pleasing.

I like the way they paired this one piece bathing suit with a textured necklace, to also draw focus away from figure flaws. Younger women that feel uncomfortable in a swimsuit will often avoid 100% ever being in a situation where they need to wear one.   Young adults with real figures feel that skimpy two pieces are unwearable for them and the one pieces are too elderly looking and frumpy.   This fresh color of soft purple and the figure flaw hiding style makes a suit wearable for such a young woman.

The only problem is getting her to try this swimsuits on if she is modest. Are you a woman who totally dreads swimsuits? What you don’t realize that you can find one that looks flattering but might have to really focus on fit and styling for your figure type. You have to be willing to shop extensively for the right bathing suit. The stores at the mall all have relatively small selections in swimear, so make sure to look at styles online and methodically canvas an entire mall when looking for the right suit.  Beach towns often have specialty swimsuit stores that offer more styles, although they are often the skimpier two piece ones.    Department stores have miracle styles for plus sized women but small selections so don’t expect to find the right suit at the very first place you go to.

You might have to look around for a swimsuit but the effort is worth it because as a woman you always want to have at least one swimsuit in your wardrobe.  A nice fitting swimsuit will last you a few years and there really are times where you need one.  Therefore, it is worth the time and misery you’ll have to invest shopping for one that looks good on you!
