Plus Size Swimwear – 10 tips to look slimmer
For body type 'Curvy Tummy' for now, but more to come...
Here are 10 Tips for Curvy Tummy to pick a Swimsuit:
(Stay tuned for more tips for other body types!)
Tip 1. Ruched swimsuits usually make you look slimmer
Pretty folds across your waist can camouflage your curvy tummy leaving you a visually slimmer waist (see comparison above).
Tip 2. Plunging one-piece diverts focus from your waist
Prefer no ruching? A plunging one-piece swimsuit can be sexy while taking away focus on your tummy.
Tip 3. Empire or raised-waist
Can visually minimizes tummy, and often goes well with printed fabric.
Tip 4. A-line cuts
Give your waist a skimming effect.
Tip 5. Tankini, or not?
Believe it or not, you might not need a tankini, because sometimes a ruched or raised-waist one-piece might define your curves better, rather than hiding them totally. Also, tankinis have tendency to ride up and expose what you’re trying to hide, so be careful!
Tip 6. Belt to define waist
If designed well, bands and belts can help define your waist line.
Tip 7. Black is always safe, and sexy
Want to brighten up a bit? Accessories such as earrings, bangles, or a light colored tote usually make a good match.
Tip 8. Give a magical touch with shapewear
Tip 9. Go for matte or textured fabric and not metallic or shiny satin
Tip 10. Last but not least, do not expose if you’re not sure!
Be careful with shorter top that shows off you tummy or swimsuits with cutouts, they might not be a good idea for the curvy tummy type (especially when sitting down).
