It’s summer once again! Thinking of hitting the beach but have a few concerns before taking off your sarong at the beach? That’s perfectly normal. There are a number of common insecurities every woman has, like stretch marks and cellulites, but the most common hindrance from going all out is that pesky belly flab.
Relax, you’re not the only one who has this problem. Having a bit of fluff shouldn’t hinder you from feeling confident and beautiful, because you are! To accentuate your body, try these swimsuits that will make you forget about your muffin top. Read on to see which of these swimsuit styles suit you perfectly!
1. The Trusty Tankini

The tankini is the no-fail way to hide the excess tummy fats while still being able to rock a stunning swimsuit. It has more material for the top (hence, tankini) while still having a bikini bottom, creating the perfect mixture of sassy and conservative. Naked Sun ’s Magnolia Blush has a slight edge against other tankini options because of its ruffled design, which better helps you to disguise the belly.

Price:PhP900 for the bottoms

The classic bikini is perhaps the most common swimwear option for both swimming and photo shoots. However, if you are looking to hide a bit of that muffin top, then opting for high-waisted bikinis is the way to go. It gives off a feminine, classic vibe while still being able to show off other parts of your physique. The design is also reminiscent of the timeless pin-up girl aesthetic that never really goes out of style. Beyond The Beach’s Joey High Waist bottoms are available in blue or peach.
3. Fun Patterned Prints

Though it may be a bit more risqué than other options, the frilled plunge one-piece is a great style to hide the unwanted belly while showing off other parts of your body such as your cleavage and your back. The deep neckline also makes you look taller and leaner. All of these elements can be found in Negritas’ Karamiah in Merlot. Aside from having a plunging neckline, it also comes with a braided belt cinching the waist and further giving the illusion of a smaller waistline. The piece comes in noir (black), burgundy, white, and merlot.
The swimsuit is made out of 82% Nylon and 18% Spandex.

A classic never goes out of style. The black bikini is the LBD (Little Black Dress) of swimwear and wearing it will always make you seem chic and sophisticated. Not to mention that all black swimwear looks great on any body type, even ones who are trying to conceal tummy fats. For such occasions, Float Swimwear’s The AMAYA might be the perfect fit. It is a classic wrap-around one-piece with adjustable shoulder straps and a V-neckline, making sure you get to flaunt your other assets while concealing the belly. It comes in the following sizes: extra small, small, medium, large, extra large, 2XL, and 3XL.
Having many swimwear options to hide belly fat is great and all but it is important to remember the one quality that triumphs all tricks and every woman should exude: confidence. If you have confidence and are aware of the beauty you naturally possess, you are already half ready to conquer the beach.
