Tummy concealing: You're built a little more like an apple shape and carry your weight mostly in your middle.
What to look for: Whether you prefer to be covered up or you're out to slim your middle, there are a number of one-piece and two-piece suits, like high-waisted or tankini styles, that help to smooth out your middle.
Tips and tricks:
- Shirring works miracles. The gathered fabric hides bulges and creates definition in the waist.
- A figure-flattering surplice-wrap silhouette trims the waist with its crossover fabric.
- If you carry your weight in the lower part of your belly, try on a retro-inspired, high-waisted suit. They're on trend and ace for covering the abdomen.
