Email Archives: The First Day of Summer - May 21, 2012

Back to the Beach!

Memorial Day weekend is fast upon us - May 28th is the first "unofficial" day of summer! Pools and beaches are opening, beach barbecues and pool parties are being planned... Are you ready?

If you're anything like us, the answer is a resounding "no way." Don't worry, no crazy crash diets or liquid cleanses necessary. There's an easy way to get yourself ready with the near-miraculous trimming things the swimsuit industry has developed and we've handpicked for you - just order now to leave plenty of time for shipping.

Here's a quick rundown of some of our favorite design features and why:

1. The Cross Over One Piece: a panel of purposeful fabric crossed over the tummy does two tricks in one - it acts as a built in tummy control panel and the lines create a sweet little diversion to draw the eye away from lumps and bumps.

A Cross Over done extremely well: the Miraclesuit Lisa Jane Hidden Underwire One Piece Swimsuit With Adjustable Straps.

2. The Twist-Top One Piece: A flattering twist built into the bust draws attention up towards the face and adds a bit of shirring to detract from any extra bulges below.

Sunsets Separates Bra Sized Bra Sized Twist Front Underwire One Piece Swimsuit does this very nicely with a smooth body throughout and is also available in Women's sizes.

Aerin Rose also has a beautiful twist top suit that is shirred throughout with a tummy control panel built in to smooth as well as camouflage any bumps you'd rather diminish.

3. Tummy Control: Designers have gotten savvy to the insecurities of the common female mind and have come up with built-in magical tummy control panels, often constructed with a secret magical blend of fabrics that act like shapewear but look like the cutest swim suit on the beach.

Some favorite suits with incorporated tummy control include the Aerin Rose Tummy Control Underwire One Piece Swimsuit, the Aerin Rose High Waist Retro Bikini Pant with Tummy Control, Magicsuit Mariposa Kathy Underwire One Piece Bandeau Swimsuit, and the Miraclesuit Barcelona Foam Bra One Piece Swimsuit.
