Strut Your Stuff This Season
We all want to look our best in our swimsuits, don't we? As we age, that become a little harder to do. Not only do we gain a few pounds, but sometimes things just aren't as perky as they use to be. Sometimes lumps and bumps find their way into our swimwear. While we're working on fixing these issues, let's disguise them.
Finding a swimsuit that caters to every area of your body is ideal. Swimsuits that give us that tummy control we so desire are the best. See more below about these trendy swimsuits that will hide the tummy and make you look and feel sexy and beautiful.
1. Ruched Swimsuits
The ruched swimsuit controls and lifts at the same time. These swimsuits are great for the ladies who love full coverage and want to look thinner. This is a figure-flattering swimsuit that offers the ruched style that instantly slims you. This swimsuit has tummy control that easily hides the belly pooch. Ruched swimsuits give you that sleek look without an uncomfortable feel. I love wearing ruched swimsuits on my pear-shaped body.
2. High-Waisted Bikinis
Yes, the high-waisted bikini is in. This style makes it easy and just fabulous for almost anyone to wear a bikini. It's so pretty and feminine. There's no need to worry about the tummy because it is completely covered, giving you a sleek and sophisticated sexy look. Everything in life should be this easy. The high-waisted bikini is one of the hottest styles this year.
3. Optical Illusion Swimsuits
Check out this eye-catching silhouette. The optical illusion swimsuit camouflages the stomach area, making you look slimmer and just gorgeous. These are almost magical. Unflattering bulges instantly disappear when you wear this swimsuit. The pattern forces the eyes to move around your body, making you appear absolutely flawless.

4. Belted Swimsuits
Want to look really fashionable and hide your stomach at the same time? Try a beautiful belted swimsuit. These swimsuits accentuate your waist while showing off those bodacious curves. Belted swimsuits are great for concealing the belly bulge. They help mask the midsection, giving it a smaller appearance. Be very cautious when wearing a belted swimsuit: It will give you unexpected swagger.
5. Fringed and Ruffled Swimsuits
For the ultimate tummy cover-up, choose a fabulous fringed or ruffled swimsuit. Oh, how good fringe and ruffle swimsuits make the body look. You can cover just the midsection or pick a longer style that slims the thighs, too. Ruffles will make your thighs appear slimmer.
You want to look good and feel confident in your swimsuit. No need to suck that tummy in, baby. Be your voluptuous self. Fringes and ruffles conceal the midsection while adding class to your look. You just can't go wrong with one of these swimsuits.

Thank you for reading rebekahElle! I absolutely love the high waist look. Every time I look at it I think of Marilyn Monroe strutting her stuff. All the older styles have resurfaced and are cuter than ever. You are one lucky lady living so close to the beach, enjoy the season!

You've chosen some cute swimsuits. I think my favorite is the high waist suit. It's functional and fashionable. I live in Florida and have a pool, and live close to the beaches. Everyone I know has a pool... You've given me some ideas of what to look for!
