Ladies here is the perfect swimsuit for those nasty love handles.  It works for a number of reasons.  First, a darker color is going to help slender your figure for sure.  Next, the entire area around the love handles is very clean, classic and simple lines.  Nothing noisy and it just hugs and smooths out the body in this area.

Hide love handles with clean lines and interesting features on top

Now, here is the kicker.  The deep plunging neckline goes down so far that it sort of cuts up the body and makes the upper waist look slimmer.  This gives and hourglass illusion which helps to diminish the love handles.  The little back strap across the front on top is a great way to draw attention to the top and it visually draws attention away from love handles.

All black on a heavier woman can look too dark so make sure with a black swimsuit you have some skin showing like this deep neckline has to break up the color a bit.

How to look skinny

Another little feature is the gold buckled on the halter top.  Again, this draws attention upward and away from the handles giving you a free body lift.  So if you have love handles you are going to be looking for a one piece swimsuit in a darker color that has clean and simple lines in the hip area.  Then you need some action on top by way of a deep neckline or details higher up that divert and attract the eye.

If you are too self-conscious to wear a swimsuit another idea is to try a high-waisted two piece but then wear a lightweight open kimono or cover up to hide the hip area that way.  But if you don’t want to wear a coverup, then stick with a fitted one piece.  This picture is I believe Colleen Rooney and I ran across it on entertainment site OK! in the UK. UK fashion rocks! Great site for celebrity fashion ideas.  This woman looks just gorgeous in this wonderful photograph.  Love!

Love handles



This Gottex Lattice Sweetheart Square Neck One Piece Swimsuit in Blue offers great support for a fuller figure.  The single color in dazzling indigo blue is so pretty.  What I like about this swimsuit especially is that love handles are minimized.  The cross over and gathering in of the material at the waist acts like a cinch.  Your waist-line is accentuated meanwhile the appearance of hippy love handles is diminished with this particular styling.

This swimsuit has several flattering design aspects.  For one thing, the sturdy strap and sweetheart squared off neckline is quite attractive for a larger chest.  There is plenty of coverage and support here, but her chest is still showcased and looks incredible.  Also notice the cross gathering through the waist.  This accentuates a larger chest and makes the most of it.  Hips and breast are accentuated, while the waistline is minimized in.  The result is a curvy, voluptuous looking figure.

Swimsuits that hide love handles

This Gottex swimsuit will work wonderfully to hide and downplay love handles.  By accentuating the top with the sweetheart neckline and drawing in the swimsuit across the waist with the crossed over gatherings, the hip area is minimized and smoothed.  This suit fits like a miracle and will tuck in love handles quite well.  A chubby larger figure will turn into a curvy voluptuous figure if you find a flattering fit that works such as this Gottex design.

This clean-looking Gottex swimsuit is quite attractive and will make a larger woman look voluptuous and curvy.  Gottex is such a wonderful swimsuit brand for women.  The construction of these swimsuits is top quality.  You will find Gottex designs sold in various high-end department stores such as Nordstrom, Saks and Bloomingdale’s.  It is a swimsuit label that has been around for years.

Hide love handles


sexy-tankini This is a very sexy tankini!  I do not know who outputs this bikini but suspect that this is another sexy one from the one and only Victoria’s Secret, at least based on the photography of the photo.  I love this tankini!  This tankini has an island and surfer girl look to it with the cool hardware details and surf girl brown color.  The tankini bottoms have the classic string ties but the top is a unique take on the usually icky tankini style.  I’ve never seen a tankini that splits down the front like this one and I must say it gives a very sexy look!

This tankini hides thicker waist with love handles

Some women have a tall athletic body with nice long legs but they are built rather thick going down through the mid-section.  This can come from the way they are naturally built, or just that certain women have a tendency to carry their weight more in the midriff section.  This swimsuit is perfect for this situation as it slenderizes the waist.  It can show off nice athletic legs while meanwhile hiding a little bit of love handles through the middle of your body.

Unique twist on the tankini makes it sexy

Notice the casual beach hair, natural sun-kissed town, and toned down makeup.  Lovely!  I also like the simple wooden bracelet she is wearing as accessory.  Try Victoria Secret swimwear website as Victoria’s Secret always come up with the sexy twists on the standard bikini styles.  Getting their catalogs in the mail can be fun too as they always have wonderful photography and fun style inspirations to look at.  Victoria’s Secret is a great swimwear catalog to have around the house when you need some idle reading.
