Best Printed Swimsuits (shown from left to right)
J.Crew Jersey Lomellina Colorblock Tank, $70
Not only is color blocking a huge summer trend, but it also tricks the eye into seeing a slimmer figure. We love the unique halter neckline and the burgundy, navy and teal color combination of this J.Crew number.
Ann Taylor Star Bright Dot Ruffle One Piece Swimsuit, $100
Want to wear a polka dot bikini that’s not so ridiculously teenie-weenie? Try this vintage-esque one-piece. The layered ruffles in the front minimize a muffin top but maximize the chic factor. Bonus: no straps means no annoying tan lines.
Old Navy Women’s One Piece, $33
There’s no excuse not to steal this deal. The black side panels strategically widdle down your middle, while the textured print is totally on trend.
Best Solid Swimsuits (shown from left to right)
Lauren Ralph Lauren Strapless Bandeau One Piece Swimsuit, $87
This LBS (little black swimsuit) has a timeless and elegant shape and the draping in the front helps to hide any tummy bulges. Accessorize it with some killer shades and you’ll wish it was summer vacation all year long.
Spanx Wrap Around One Piece, $25
Ruching is a great strategy for tricking the eye to see a slimmer body shape. We love the bright blue shade and thick straps which will hold everything in place, even if you’re running after your kids. Add a fabulous floppy hat and you’re good to go.
Gottex Le Ribot Open Surplice One Piece Swimsuit, $178
The stretched fabric of this fuchsia body shaping swimsuit instantly creates an hourglass silhouette. The criss-cross detail along the side is also a nice touch.
