Finally we have reached an age where swimming costumes are just as stylish and well designed as the ubiquitous bikini. What’s more, swimsuits come with additional tummy tucking and support features that its more skimpy peers lack. Here’s our guide to taking advantage of these design perks.

Swimwear with Slimming perks

1. Small Prints

Small patterns deflect the eye from any lumps and bumps. I love Laura Ashley’s floral patterned costumes.

2. Tummy Control

These bathers have stormed the market; the tight fabric keeps you well supported giving you a slimmer silhouette. This classic polka-dot tummy control one-piece from Marks & Spencer certainly does the trick.
