Do you have a belly bulge that you would like to conceal in a swimsuit?  Here are a few style tips for creating the appearance of a slender tummy.  I am lacking the purchase source for this fabulous brown one piece swimsuit but will point out the great style concepts you can learn from this photograph.

Solid color swimsuit gives you a slender tummy

For a slender tummy go for a solid color in a darker tone, not necessarily black.  The all over effect will sleeken the body.  One color hides the fat and darker colors are most concealing.  For a larger body, stay away from all black and choose a deeper blue, plum, green, brown, gray, or emerald color instead.

Detract the eye to other areas which makes tummy look slender

To hide the tummy employ a tad of the bait and switch trick.  Accentuate other beautiful aspects of your body and appearance.  Try big hair, or sexy hoop earings, or a plunging halter top.  This all detracts the eyes away from the tummy and redirects attention elsewhere. The result – a slender tummy illusion.

Pay for quality tummy control fabric

A thicker, miracle type fabric will hold in the bulge much better than a thin bathing suit fabric.  This is where the tried and true brands like Gottex and Miraclesuit are winners.  The fabric is very sturdy and solid and this controls the tummy and bulge much better.  Likewise, higher quality swimsuits for women have built in bras and other aspects of support that make a woman look slender.

Look for flattering styles

Find the swimwear styles that flatter your body the best.  This requires that you invest some time into your swimsuit purchases.   Before you buy a swimsuit you should be trying on 20-30 swimsuits to see what looks best on you.  This is a frustrating process but necessary to find the styles that really suit your figure.

This photograph shows a wonderful tummy slendering swimsuit.  The belt is adorable and it smooths and conceals a tummy bulge.  The brown color is rich and luxurious but not too all black as to stand out like a sore thumb.  Finally, the plunging halter neck shows that if you accentuate other aspects of your appearance such as hair or cleavage, that your tummy will be effectively make to look slimmer.  This swimsuit is a definite winner.

I love this bright blue swimsuit from ASOS called the Exclusive Plunge.  This swimsuit is made from a quality stretch swim fabric.  It features a plunge v-neckline with wide set straps that hold everything up and together.  It has semi-sheer mesh inserts that add a bit of naughty gal to the look.  Finally the ruched panelling strategically flatters a plus figure.  The back is a full brief and very flattering too.  Overall, you will stun in the plus size ASOS swimwear winner.  The most amazing thing about this swimsuit is that it retails for only $42.19!

If you have never heard of ASOS Curve, it is a collection of plus size clothing that ASOS puts out to compliment the fuller figure.  ASOS Curve casfully considered the treand-led styles from their main clothing line and then makes clever adjustments to the best sellers for the most flattering fit.  You can find chic skater dresses and jersey tops, rompers, pretty blouses in bold prints and ultra-feminine lace, as well as swimsuits that rock the full figure.  The ASOS Curve line is precisely cut for women of size 18 to 28.  If you haven’t checked out ASOS Curve, visit the Asos web site soon.

Brigitewear sheer swimsuits

Brigitewear catalog for women has some super sexy women’s swimwear, t-shirts, sarongs, tops and jewelry. I really like this barely there sheer tan through one piece thong-style swimsuit. While this look is too skimpy for most women (it has a revealing back too LOL) it shows some useful slimming tricks.

Sexy hardware

The sexy hoop in the front on this swimsuit shows us that added details makes a suit stand apart from the rest. Wow that is sexy. Women tend to be bedazzled by fancy prints like floral and Hawaiian bright colors. Solid covers however, tend to be more slimming. When you take solid covers and add gorgeous details like hardware rings, hoops, tassels or string ties it makes a slimming solid color suit into something very special. A key slimming trick is to look for solid colors with unique details.

Sexy edging

The sexy string ties and contrasting dazzle turquoise edging takes this swimsuit into the incredibly gorgeous zone. Again, solid colors are more slimming but tend to be boring. If you’re going solid and want a punch of color, look for bright contrast string ties or edging details such as shown here. So pretty and sexy!

Plunging neckline

Flat chested women look great in a plunging necklines. Instead of getting obsessed with push up bras and padded swimsuits, just own it. If you’re flat chested look for a deep v-neck with cool hardware details at center. I promise the onlooker won’t be thinking how flat you are they will be thinking how gorgeous you are.

High cut legs

OK this high cut leg is over the top exposure and most women won’t be able to put on a swimsuit like this one. After all, the rear side is a total thong and that’s not only hard to pull off but a little bit too much exposure. What you can take from this is the hint though. It’s that a higher cut leg is going to make you appear to have longer legs. If you have short legs make sure to look for a higher cut swimsuit rather than a boy-short type that cuts straight across the leg. High cut or french legs makes the legs appear longer than they are.

I found this cute sheer inspired swimsuit on shop-brigite. Cute merchandise, and this barely there thong back one piece suit is tan through sheer. You can get an all over tan wearing it. If you plan to wear this one in public you would probably want to purchase a sarong to go over the back.
