Everyone loves a good beach trip—at least before you worry about what to wear. The swimsuit season is here and unfortunately, not everyone had the chance to shed those extra pounds. Well, we’ve got good news for you. There are still ways to look summer-ready!

Try High-Waisted Bikinis

High-waisted bottoms work wonders in hiding your love handles. Just remember that it has to extend above your belly button to avoid showing the bulge. Check out this chic pair from Wanderlust! (Emma Bikini Bottom and top, Wanderlust, P2200, Available in Zalora)

Use visual effects

For a super-slimming effect, choose a piece designed to give you curves where you need them. Contoured color-blocking is a perfect optical illusion like this swimsuit from I Love Koi. The two tone design is beautifully positioned to make you look slimmer. (Maya Bay One Piece, I Love Koi, P1880, Available in Zalora)

Go for a Plunging Neckline

If you want to show a bit of skin without wearing a two-piece, then choose a one-piece with a sexy plunging neckline. It will create distraction from your bottom half and will draw attention to your bust and face. (Strappy V-Neck Low Back One Piece Swimsuit, Shapes and Curves, P1199)

Embrace splashy prints

Choose big prints and avoid small prints like microflorals and small stripes. Big prints make you look thinner because it shows a larger pattern, creating an appearance of smaller space.  It also confuses the eye, hiding bulge and lumps to make you look slimmer.  (Divinity Plunge Swimsuit from Pink N’ Proper, P1449, Available in Zalora)
