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.
