Sleek & Slimming

Color blocking is a fantastic trick used on bathing suits that will minimize the parts you want to minimize and accent your strongest assets. A great option by Kooey has orange ruching along both sides of the waist and along the top – this ruching tricks the eye into seeing sleek, feminine lines along the waist and draws the eye away from a troubling middle up to the chest. Another option for slimming down with color blocking is with Crystal Jin’s red and orange one piece; the bold red of the suit only comprises half the suit and overshadows the lighter orange, making you appear more petite.

A great way to camouflage a less-than-perfect tummy or rear end is with a high-waisted two-piece. Kooey and Lisa Blue both showed colorful, slimming versions of this style. The bottom piece will cover your tummy and flatter your curves, while the top will boast your chest.

One-pieces are a true classic for slimming bathing suits as they come in so many different styles and colors. If you’d like to make your waist seem thinner or give yourself a more feminine-looking middle, try Tyler Rose’s one-piece with side cutouts. Qiss Qiss’ black one-piece has a flattering pattern with a plunging neckline to draw attention toward your upper half.
