Though it might seem like swimsuit season is so far off in the distance, summer will be here sooner than you think (thankfully). That means there’s no better time than now to freshen up your beachwear, with a new suit being first up on the list. There are so many options on the market, from the unique ones that no know else on the beach will be wearing to the “naked” styles celebrities are loving. But have you ever considered one with game-changing tummy-control technology?
That’s right, swimsuits for tummy control are just like shapewear, but for the beach. Many of these styles are designed with a built-in front panel that provides extra support in the stomach area, while others are simply rendered in a bold pattern that creates the illusion of a trimmer tummy. Both are great options, though the former can easily double as a shaping bodysuit to wear underneath dresses—pretty cool, no? Double-duty pieces are impossible to resist, after all. Ahead, shop our handpicked selection of swimsuits that offer up great tummy control.
