Thanks to the rapidly approaching swim season, thoughts naturally veer toward the water, the sun, and generally chilling out. With all that relaxing stuff to entertain your brain, you also want to feel relaxed in your bathing suit. Nothing zaps sunny-fun faster than self-conscious thoughts running through your mind. What is the fastest way to look, and feel great? An awesome slimming bathing suit of course.  

If you have not had the good fortune of being aware of these little power tools, it’s time you get up close and personal with the slim-suit. Slimming swimwear is simply shapewear for the pool. It makes sense; where could you appreciate shapewear more than the poolside? These suits have built-in compression that can smooth out the appearance of bulges (along with their nasty little friends), and use design tricks that leave you looking slimmer without feeling like you’ve been trapped in a tube. 

The fabric has been tested against UV light, ocean water, chlorine, and your good old washing machine. Real testers gave their feedback on durability, fit, and slim-ability. They were even measured to see if measurable inches were taken off thanks to the shapewear technology, and the results are in!

Testers loved the Miraclesuit, found on our site. They enjoyed the magical taming-of-the-tummy capability, and also appreciated the lift of the built-in underwire. 

If you’re looking for value, check out the V-neckline Monokini swimsuit by Tempt Me. You can sweep up this little number for a seriously little number[ Everyone, regardless of shape or age, found this suit flattering. Thanks to the smoothing mesh in the back, overflow that can be seen in other suits, takes a hike here. 

We should have expected this, but somehow it seems surprisingly genius, Spanx ( came up with a swimsuit that allows you the ability to customize what you cover. The band-like fabric can be worn as a skirt for covering hips, around your midsection or bust, like a tankini. There are lots of colors and comes in sizes extra-small through extra-large. 

The Sidestroke at has some serious groupies; particularly the one-shoulder style. This universally-flattering design looks great on every body. Diagonal lines, coupled with compression fabric that doesn’t feel like you’re being compressed, keeps this suit selling out. Bright colors and lots of sizes, makes hard-to-get, worth-the- chase. 

If you’d like to show a little skin, while still holding in some skin, check out B2PRITY at The backless halter, and cleavage-showing front, somehow still manage to hide the tummy. Ruching in the midsection looks slimming, and removable padding gives you the flexibility to fit your specific body. Some said this was the first time they felt beautiful in a swimsuit. (This suit also packs a lot of bang for its buck.)
