Many women struggle to find the best swimwear to hide a stomach bulge caused by pregnancy, aging, or eating habits.
Though all of these are completely natural, when on holiday or a trip to the beach you may prefer to hide this part of your body to make you more comfortable.
Many people with different body types, including "skinny fat", postpartum mums, and plus-size bodies, struggle to find a swimsuit that flatters their tummies when they're unhappy with it.
And the majority of swimming suits designed to reduce tummy fat aren't the most trendy or pricey.
The struggle can be real when it gets to the summer season, and finding the right thing to wear can cause a lot of stress and anxiety.
To help make this whole process easier, we have made this list of the best swimsuits you can buy to hide tummy fat.
Each one is also very stylish so you won’t have to worry about looking like the odd one out at the beach. We will also explain how each suit uses its clever designs to hide your tummy fat.
With so many designs to choose from, you’re sure to find the right bathing suit for you on this list.
Light Top/Dark Bottom Swimsuits
This combination of light and dark color blocks is perfect in creating the illusion of a slimmer figure, as the eye is drawn up to the lighter half of the swimsuit, making the tummy area far less noticeable.
The CUPSHE Women's One Piece Swimsuit Cutout Halter Lace Up Twist Bathing Suit is the perfect example of this.
The standard one of the pink top and black bottom will completely cover your tummy. Black is also a very slimming color, which will help hide your tummy even more.
If you don’t like this color combination there are plenty to choose from, with up to 16 styles to choose from.
A lot of these have patterned bottoms rather than a color block, but these patterns are still a good way to conceal your tummy.
This swimsuit is also a good choice if you would still like to show a bit of skin while also hiding your tummy area.
The SweatyRocks Women's Bathing Suits One Shoulder Cutout One Piece Swimsuit Swimwear Monokini is also good if you want to show off your body while also hiding your tummy.
Like the Cupshie swimsuit, it comes in a variety of styles and colors to suit everyone.
Solid Dark Color
If you prefer a simple style then this might be the best option for you. Everyone knows that dark colors are very slimming, so you could try out this black Hilor Women's One Piece Swimsuit. The one-shoulder design of this bathing suit also adds an element of style.
Black isn’t the only dark color that is slimming though, so if you want to try other colors then take a look at this deep green CUPSHE Women's V Neck One Piece. This one features an open back and also shows off more of your chest area with the deep neckline and the ruffles.
A classic style of swimsuit, high-waisted clothing items have been used to hide tummies for decades. These two-piece swimsuits are very stylish and come in an endless variety of colors and patterns.
The high-waist bottoms provide support for your tummy, while also covering it well enough to disguise it and draw attention away
This MOOSLOVER Women's Shirred Bandeau Bikini Top and High Waisted Bottom swimsuit has a very cute floral pattern, though they offer some in single colors as well.
Tempt Me Women Vintage Swimsuits also have a large selection of high-waisted two-piece suits. They come in a huge variety of styles, such as the light top/dark bottom design, and patterned bottoms/plan top design.
All of these are very easily able to hide any tummy fat that you don’t want people to see.
As we have already said, patterns are a great way to hide any of your tummy insecurities. They help to define your waist more if used on the bottom of the swimsuit, which draws attention away from your tummy.
It can also distract the eye so the person won’t notice your tummy bulge at all.
These types of swimsuits come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. You will find them on one-piece suits like the COCOSHIP Women's Retro One Piece and two-piece suits such as the CUPSHE Women's High Waist Bikini Swimsuit.
If you would rather cover your tummy altogether then you should think about buying a blouse top swimsuit.
This is the easiest way to hide your tummy. If you are also a bit insecure about back fat then this is also a good option for you.
Just because these swimsuits cover a large area of your body doesn’t mean that they can’t also be stylish. The Chenghe Women's Bandeau Blouson Tankini Top has a very fashionable design and style to it.
The same can be said for the Holipick Women Tankini Swimsuit. This swimsuit features shorts instead of the usual swimsuit bottoms which is great if the regular design of bottoms makes you uncomfortable.
There was a short but sad time when ruffles were considered ugly, but luckily we all got over it and now we can wear these great outfits again.
Ruffles are great as they are able to disguise your whole body shape while also making you look good.
A lot of times the ruffles also wrap all around your body, so won’t have to worry about people seeing back fat either.
Combining ruffles with loud patterns, like the MAXMODA Ruffle Swimsuit One Piece does, is the ultimate way to hide any tummy fat.
If you would rather have a ruffled swimsuit in a solid color, then you should take a look at the Century Star Womens Athletic One Piece bathing suit
