Keep reading for our favorite swimsuit choices.
Take a look at our top picks for Summer 2012:
Ruching is your friend! Use it to distract from a less-than-perfect tummy. It really does make an amazing difference. We love this suit from J. Crew!
A seersucker one-piece suit is flattering on all body types and for all occasions, whether you are splashing in the sea or hanging out on dry land. We love this bright blue option from Shoshanna.
This Old Navy swimsuit may have stripes, but they are diagonal, slimming you from top to bottom!
The Magicsuit slims you with its colorblock features; we love this trendy take on the slimming color trick.
Spanx is known for shapewear, and they have smartly incorporated swimwear into their shapewear line! We love this modest yet flirty draped tankini.
Love basic black? This is the ruched suit for you! The Inches Off one-piece is classic and relaxed for a playful day at the beach.
This tummy-slimmer stunner from Croft & Barrow punches it up with a kick of red that also manages to make you look slimmer and thinner in an instant. At under $50, you can’t go wrong!
This two-piece number from Neiman Marcus has it all: a slimming color, ruching and even a hipster bottom. This will stay put whether you’re catching rays or diving for a volleyball!
