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. 

Sexy Tankinis



With the scorching heat and summer in full swing you may not be able to avoid a pool. One way or another, some how some way, someone is going to get you into a pool or beach situation where you are going to be subjected to wearing a bathing suit. Never fear! If you are self-conscious about your body in a bathing suit there are certain styles out there that can flatter your figure, flaws and all.

Hide love handles

If your body flaw includes love handles you can utilize these helpful tips to find the swimsuit that minimizes chubby hips. First of all, you may want to go with the classic and versatile one piece swimsuit for this problem. While the color needn’t be jet black, you may want to stick to a darker color as that does help make you look slender.

Look for an inner panel design

One excellent trick for hiding your love handles is to look for the swimsuit that has an inner panel or seam running down the both sides of the front of the swimsuit.   As you can see from this wonderful example, seams/bolts run vertically and curve in and out at the waist. Visually, they turn love handles into curves by having the seam scoop in at the waistline.

Create a visual balance up top

Another tip for minimizing love handles is to look for a top that creates a visual balance. This top for example, has the ruffles and sexy bandeau. Your eyes get drawn upward to the top, and guess what, this means attention is diverted away from the swimsuit bottoms and your hips.  This bait and switch is going to you the illusion of a curvy, well balanced silhouette.

Remember, to hide love handles try a classic one piece, deeper colors, look for inner panels, and be sure the top creates a visual attraction. Fabric is important too here, because you want a supportive Lycra that offers some support and control. You may have to pay a little more for a swimsuit with quality fabric, construction, and design, but your figure will thank you for it. Fight for your right to have fun in the sun by finding that swimsuit that flatters your figure and boosts your confidence.
