Stomach minimizing swimsuits

28 Mar

Now that spring looks to be finally here (*crossing fingers*), I’m digging out last year’s clothes and figuring out what to buy. I bought my current swimsuit for our five-year anniversary trip to Las Vegas last May. I can’t find it for sale anywhere currently, but here’s a picture. Jantzen apparently changes their collection each year and you wouldn’t want to be caught wearing last year’s fashion, would you?

I love it and I think I look good in it, but it’s a little va-va-voom for family outings. It looks just fine on the model, but when I put it on it’s cleavage city. Perfect for an anniversary (and Vegas!) but not so much when we’re with my parents.

The always stylish K recommended this swimsuit from Target as flattering and stomach minimizing, so I went to check it out.

Thanks to my large thighs, though, the skirt portion on this particular suit rode up too much and ended up being sort of a belly ruffle, which…no. I tried on a few others and of course, the one that looked the best on me?

Has the phrase “push up” right in the name. It isn’t as eye-catching as the red polka dot suit so maybe I can get away with a little push up, though? It looked so good I think I have to have it.

All three of these suits are quite flattering and if you’re looking for something to hide some extra padding around the middle I highly recommend looking at these brands.
