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.

Love handles



I just ran accross this sexy jeweled one piece Miracle Suit featured on a cute plus size swimsuit site called Just Swimmingly.  This suit is actually available from Lane Bryant’s swimwear collection and I surely agree with Just Swimmingly for loving it.   When you finally come across a plus size swimsuit that really nails it, all you can do is give praise, praise, praise to the the designer.  This Lane Bryant one piece is really just fabulous.

The great thing about this swimsuit is that it is going to make you look 10 pounds thinner with the Miratex fabric that Miracle Suit uses.  This is a great technology to smooth the tummy and hold together any bulges.   A plus size woman will love this swimsuit.  Of course this swimsuit does show some cleavage but I believe it is done tastefully.  The jeweled strip adds a nice edgy and fashion forward touch to this swimsuit.

This Fiji in yellow swimsuit is absolutely great for hiding big hips and love handles.  Look at the bottom.  It covers plenty and with the gathered ruching any junk in the trunk is minimized.  The high waisted bottom to this sexy number covers and smooths down love handles and better yet it makes big hips look hot.

Perfect swimsuit to discreetly hide bigger hips and love handles

What is remarkable about this swimsuit is that the sexy two double diamond cutouts make her look like she has a perfect curvy hourglass shape.  They cut into the waist and give the added sexy shape to this swimsuit.  The top cutout brings attention to a buxom chest.  The second cutout lower down gives a small waist illusion and it shows some skin yet its above where most women have belly chub.  It shows just the right amount of skin in just the right place for a plus sized lady.

The sexy yellow gold color of this swimsuit looks great against a tan or naturally dark skin.  This style takes advantage of a voluptuous body and works it to the utmost advantage from flashing a gorgeous full bustline on top to exposing skin tastefully by showing midriff.  God how I love this swimsuit.  I just love everything that Monif C puts out there.  It’s plus size swimwear at its best.  Love!
