Swimsuit Trends: What’s Hot and What’s Shot

Body Issue: If you’re packing some extra baggage in your thighs…
Trick: Surprisingly, bigger thighs benefit from a bottom cut higher on the thigh; it elongates the leg and creates a leaner look.
Treat: Ballet’s “Tobago” high-leg control brief features a flattering high cut and acts like a body-shaper, cinching any lower body bulge. The contrasting embroidery along the waistline draws attention up and away from hips ($28; figLeaves.com).

Body Issue: If you’re a mommy to-be…
Trick: Accentuate and flatter the belly; wear convertible or low-cut bottom pieces that can expand and accommodate weigh gain, while offer lower back and belly support.
Treat: Show off a smooth, ballooning silhouette in an ebony keyhole-top, 2-piece tankini from Liz Lange for Target Maternity with a stretchy elastic waist to add support and lift (so your belly doesn’t droop and weight is more evenly distributed ($32.99; Target).

Body Issue: If you’re self-conscious…
Trick: Don’t just cover up; dress up: Pareos, caftans and the ubiquitous sarong are chic-er than ever this season
Treat: Wrap yourself in this sexy Voile sarong with accents of chocolate brown and cream to compliment the bold poppy print and trim from Lepel ($28; figLeaves.com).
