This week at the Plus Size Clothing Scoop we’re focusing exclusively on swimwear – although it’s gray and rainy at home today, Summer really is pretty much around the corner, so now is the perfect time to think about new swimsuit styles, and the best type of swimwear to choose to flatter your curvy figure.

Yesterday we took a look at how you should measure yourself up to find out your swimsuit size; and today we’re tackling a problem area which I’m sure is the cause of a lot of distress to many women the world over: the tummy area! Everyone has a certain part of their body they are not particularly comfortable with, or perhaps they would just like to camouflage it a bit.

Plus Size Swimsuit Styles To Help Slim Your Tummy Area

If your tummy is the area of your body you would like to minimize and shape up, you’ll be pleased to hear there are several swimsuit styles that will help you do just that! So you can feel comfortable by the pool, and choose something that flatters your figure best.

The Tankini

Plus size tankini styles, such as the Captivating Floral Burst Tankini by Beach Belle, are a great choice to minimize the tummy; this is because tankinis are designed to accentuate the slim area under the bust. This particular tankini style gracefully flows out from the empire seam and hides a fuller stomach. Furthermore, tunic length elongates the torso and the busy print acts as camouflage, so the eye doesn’t zero in on any one spot.

A Wrap Silhouette One Piece

However if you prefer to go for a one-piece type of swimsuit, there are several styles that will help minimize your tummy, such as the Mocha Flora Surplice One Piece Swimsuit by Beach Belle. The print fabric wraps around the torso creating multiple slimming diagonal lines. The extra layer that creates the wrap supports the tummy along with the internal control panel. The print also adds a sophisticated camouflage.

The Curvy Swimdress

Finally, if the swimdress is your choice and you’d like to hide your tummy the Beach Belle Botanica Twist Front Swimdress style if a great one to consider. This particular style is designer to flow away from the body, whilst maintaining a soft and feminine silhouette.

Those were just three suggestions on how you can choose a plus swimsuit to help minimize your tummy. For more options do visit my two favorite swimwear stores, Swimsuits For All and Always For Me, where you will find many other styles similar to the above, which will help you minimize your tummy.
