Suit Fix: A one-piece suit with a wrap-around portion or asymmetrical detailing around the middle distracts the eye into seeing a slimmer waistline. Another good figure fixer is ruching – a technique where fabric is gently gathered – which further disguises a rounded stomach because the extra fabric softens the area. Swimwear designer Shoshanna Gruss says, “When shopping for bikini’s stick to bottoms with tie string so they are easily adjustable.”
Stay Away From: It’s best to steer clear of any styles with belts or ties that cut across the stomach.
