Summer: a time of leisure, sun, and brazen body exposure. What could put you more at ease than the thought of flaunting your dimpled flesh to a sea-full of condemnatory beach-goers? However, with this season’s swimsuit trends, you can fear no more for your lack of musculature. Vintage is in, with trends that take pity on those who aren’t comfortable flouncing and bouncing about in a barely-there bikini. Here are a few styles that will allow you to lay out without letting it ALL hang out.
If you’re looking for a way to flatten your stomach while still showing off skin, take up the waistline of your bottoms. You’ll have some pin-up flair while still sparing the beach the sight of your budding beer belly.
High Waisted Bottoms - $102
Go for the two-piece style while still leaving something to the imagination. The tankini allows for a hint of midriff while still camouflaging the majority of your middle.
Push-up Tankini Top - $48
Cut-out one piece
The one piece does not have to be the bathing suit equivalent of a burqa. You can be covered up but still bring some sex appeal to the one piece with a few strategically-place cutouts.
If you’re going for full coverage, the maillot is the most flattering style you can choose. Close-fitting and simply styled, you can flaunt your figure without exposing anything indecent.
Tidal Dock Maillot - $79.95
The most forgiving of all one pieces. No longer will you have to wait an hour after eating to don a bathing suit. Create curves while distracting from the curvature of your tummy.
You may have a little round belly shaking when you laugh like a bowl full of jelly, but now you don’t have to be sequestered indoors until September in order to hide it. Toss out that itsy-bitsy-teenie-weenie number and take up one of these more flattering styles. That way, neither your skin pigment, nor the retinas of innocent sunbathers, will have to suffer.
