Smooth Sailing Ahead: The Best Swimsuits for Tummy Control

Table of Contents

Are you ready to conquer beach and pool days with confidence and style? Finding a swimsuit that loves your curves as much as you do shouldn’t put a dent in your pool day (or your tummy and hips).


More and more swimsuits are available in inclusive sizing, but the suits that flatter your core are the ones we’re diving into. With slimming panels, ruching and draping that create the illusion of a smaller middle, VENUS makes it easy to find the best swimsuits for tummy control. 

What to Look for in a Swimsuit that Tames Your Tummy

We love our curves, but sometimes finding a swimsuit that tames the tummy can feel like a challenge. Here’s what you should look for if you’re trying to enhance your core without the core workout:

  • Ruching or draping that flatters and conceals the midsection
  • Cinched waist designs that draw the eye inward and create an hourglass shape
  • Unique prints or color blocking that give the illusion of a trimmer tummy
  • Contouring and shaping material that holds you in

Perfect Tummy-Taming Bathing Suits

Remember, finding the perfect bathing suit that provides tummy control is all about embracing your shape so you not only look amazing, but feel it too. Whether you’re a mom looking for some extra coverage, or just wanting to flatter your curves, there’s a swimsuit with tummy control out there for you. As you get shopping, keep these tips in mind to play up your best features and accentuate your figure:
  • Shop for your shape! Apple-shaped women can best conceal their tummy in ruched or draped styles that create the illusion of a smaller midsection.
  • Choose trendy high-waist bikini bottoms for extra lower-belly coverage.
  • Find your perfect fit: See our tips on measuring to find your correct swimsuit size.
  • It’s all about balance. Highlight your best assets (think legs or chest) to draw attention away from your middle.
  • Lean into après swim! Turn to chic cover-ups like sarongs, beach dresses and more to elevate your swim look while also adding coverage.
