Swimdress with tummy control

A swim dress is a one-piece that’s just perfect for plus-sized women. We love this style of swimwear for some very good reasons! Sure, a swim dress bathing suit is a one-piece but it doesn’t feel and look like it at all.

Tankini with tummy control

A tankini is like a bikini, it is also a two-piece. But the big difference is the length of the top. The length of the top covers most of your back and tummy. Many tops have a slimming design, like ruches.

Advantages of a tankini

  • you don’t want to show your back and tummy, or maybe just a little bit
  • you’re looking for flattering and sexy swimwear, yet the long top still covers all the ‘mommy’ flaws
  • a two-piece you might find somewhat easier instead of a one-piece when visiting the toilet

A bikini bottom with tummy control can also be found if you search for ‘high waist’.

Tummy control swimwear is for every size. All women with all different body sizes can have issues with some parts of their bodies. You might want to highlight some parts, but rather distract the attention from other parts, like your tummy. With tummy control swimwear you can do just that.
