Tummy Control Bathing Suits – Shape Your Body

Let's sOCEANize :)
Tummy Control Bathing Suits

Tummy control bathing suits are a tool for controlling and shaping your body without sacrificing your style, comfort, fit and fashion. The slimming effect of a swimsuit is reached by playing with functional materials and different patterns, designs of a bathing suit.

Many of us don’t want to hear a word “swimsuit” not to even mention wearing it. This is mainly due to us not feeling confident in our bodies. There are always few pounds too much, few inches too wide, etc. Or this could happen after long winter season – I will not go into details about what is happening after winter season as we all know this 🙂

Anyway, f this sounds familiar to you, no worries anymore. We have a solution and it is a bathing suit with tummy control.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits – Bid Adieu to Unflattering Lines

Tummy Control Bathing Suits

Tummy control bathing suits are a great solution for women being self-conscious about their bellies and any unflattering lines around them. This type of swimwear allows you to control and shape the stomach by slimming down your silhouette and avoiding lines not flattering to your body.

There are different ways the function of slimming down your tummy can be achieved. Some of those are just visual effects while others are more sophisticated and functional but at the end, it is all about making you look slimmer and evening out your silhouette.

Visual effects involve but are not limited to ruching, shirring, draping, twisting and other design elements embedded in the swimsuit. These visual effects add textured outlook by concealing bulges and other flaws around your tummy. Fabric containing a lot of Lycra and/or Spandex is a slenderizer by nature so a swimsuit including suchlike fabric will offer greater support and control.

More sophisticated and functional ways of slendering your tummy, in their turn, relate to controlling and shaping your body.

So How Does a Bathing Suit with Tummy Control Work?

Tummy Control Bathing Suits

Without doubt, it is not an easy task to make tummy control swimwear work. Usually, this involves a composite mix of innovative technologies and features designers are implementing to create a slimming bathing suit.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits

Tummy control feature is ensured either by a special control panel, boning, contouring or highly functional fabrics embedded in the swimsuit in a specific way.

This leads to the following benefits for you:

  • slenderized midsection resulting in an illusion of flatterer tummy
  • Tummy Control Bathing Suits
    gentle and at the same time firm support to your midsection evening out any bulges or midriff love handles you have
  • accentuated curves or if you don’t have any curves tummy control bathing suits are able to create curves

I would like to suggest you paying attention also to the design of the swimsuit as certain design elements are capable of driving attention away from your problem areas and shifting focus to the parts of your body you wish to highlight.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits – Which Type of Swimsuit to Choose?

There is a vast range of tummy control swimsuits out there so it could get quite challenging to choosing the right one. To begin with, I would like to suggest you understanding which type of swimsuit you would wish to go for. Once it is done, your only headache will be selecting level of tummy control (either visual or functional) and design on the bathing suit.

Let’s look at your options.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits
Tummy Control Tankini – Stylish yet Comfortable and Covering

Tummy control tankini is a perfect choice for women wishing to hide tummy in a fashionable and modest manner. It can either feature tummy control panel or be designed in a way slimming you.

You can choose either tankini with regular briefs, skirted (it is called skirtini) or shorted (shortini). The difference as you can see is the type of bottoms the tankini top comes with. Many retailers offer an option to buy tankini top and all types of bottoms separately allowing you to choose the right one for you depending on the level of coverage you are after.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits
Tummy Control Swimdress – the Highest Level of Coverage

Tummy control swimdress is a type of swimsuit offering the greatest coverage and flattering your tummy. It is a perfect choice for women wishing to conceal not only their stomach but also rear, hips, and thighs.

Swimdress can be designed not only to control your tummy but also to make your bottom look slimmer. It can be achieved by embedding a support panel in the bottoms underneath the swimdress. The swimdress can come with regular briefs or shorts underneath so depending on the type of bottom you can slenderize your rear, hips and even upper part of your thighs.

So tummy control swimdress is the case when more is more – more coverage offers more options on how to slim down your body.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits
Tummy Control One Piece Swimsuits – Control in a Classic Way

If you are looking for a way to control your tummy but are not ready to try the newer versions of swimsuits then tummy control one piece swimsuits are your best choice. The slimming effect can be reached by the built-in control panel or diverse visual features, such as ruching, shirring and others as we already discussed before.

With a little touch of retro and classic, this type of bathing suit still can do a great job in slimming your midsection. Although we are used to one piece swimsuit being the most classical and retro one, nowadays it comes in a great variety of designs and patterns keeping up with the more contemporary types of swimwear.

Surplice design is also very common for tummy control one piece swimsuits. The wrap-style bodice will do both hide your tummy and control your midsection. A majority of styles come with control panels built in the bathing suit.

Tummy Control Bathing Suits
Tummy Control Bikini – Mission Impossible? Nope 🙂

It could seem to you that bikini is the type of swimwear not capable of any control but… well, you are wrong. Tummy control feature can come also in bikini. While bikini with the built-in control panel is not so common, designers have found other ways of incorporating slimming features in the swimsuit to make you look slimmer.

This is the case when the biggest emphasis is on the visual effects, such as shirring, ruching and twisting. It could also be that briefs are lined with Power Mesh to control and shape. Mid- and high-waist briefs usually feature tummy control as more fabric ensures more support and comfort.

Afterword – How Much Does Such a Swimsuit Cost?

As you most likely imagine the price for a swimsuit with tummy control can vary a lot. While there are really high-priced tummy control bathing suits out there, it is possible also to find sites offering tummy control swimwear for as low as few tens of bucks. And cheaper price doesn’t necessarily mean that these are not good.

Let’s look at the short summary:

Tummy Control Bathing Suits

So it is all about finding the right swimsuit with tummy control at the right price affordable for you. As said by Lailah Gifty Akita (Think Great: Be Great!):

Those who dare seek, shall find what they are seeking for.

    Great information on the tummy controlling swimwear.

    I have been looking for something like those and haven’t been able to see them at my local shops.

    It’s nice to feel “held In” when you’re out in the public wearing swimwear.

    Will check out some of your links as I can see you have done lots of research as to where I can purchase them from.


    • Hey Rose

But controlling and shaping are even nicer feelings 🙂 and that’s where tummy control swimsuits come in the game. You are welcome to check out the swimwear we have listed – it has helped a lot of women to feel more confident and safe while on the beach.

    thanks for a very informative post on tummy control bathing suits.
    Things started going south when I turned 40, the flat tummy went to be replaced by not so flattering rolls of fat.Since then, finding the right bathing suit has always proved to be a problem as it seems designers concentrate more on creating monokinis and bikinis.
    I feel tummy control bathing suits are a great solution for women like myself, just because we no longer have that flattering body does not mean we have to give up swimming.
    Thanks to your lovely post I now know exactly what to look for when buying a swimming/bathing suit this year.

    • Hi Roamy

      I know the feeling, experiencing something similar after delivery of my second son 🙂 I am happy uou have found my post helpful and I completely agree with you – we should avoid neither swimming nor beach activities just because of some back rolls or chubby tummies especially knowing that this can be solved in a flattering manner.

      Cheers, Arta

    I find it amazing this company has thought of a swimsuit for ladies with tummy control, I must admit those ladies in your photographs did not appear to me as needing tummy control but possible that is because these swimsuits did such a great job hiding their tummies from me?

    Wondering how long has these been on the market, I know some guys who could use some tummy control bathing suits will this company ever expand a men’s line one day?

    • ha ha 🙂 I agree with you – tummy control bathing suits must have done their great job in slimming down the torso so we don’t see the tummies of the models 🙂
      This is actually a great idea – I will have a look in the tummy control swimwear options for men the market offers and let you know!

      Wishing you a nice day!

  5. mila

    Thank you for your post. I have been looking for a new swimming suit for this summer and have read so many review about it. I would like to get to know more about this tummy control bathing suit. What are some disadvantages when using this tummy control bathing suit? Will earing this type of suit make it difficult for me to breath?
    Thank you!

    • Hey Mila

      Even though tummy control bathing suits sound sophisticated and tight, it is all about designers playing around with different types of materials to reach the desired effect. The main thing is to get the right size to enjoy the benefits of tummy control swimwear without sacrificing comfort and outlook. So I would suggest you pay a lot of attention to the sizing info – studying manufacturers size chart, checking on how to properly measure yourself and reading the reviews of women who have bought the particular bathing suit to see the sizing tendency. If in doubt, it is always a good idea to get in touch with the retailer to specify the size you would need to order. Other than that I don’t find any disadvantages of tummy control bathing suits – they are proven to control and shape your midsection so you don’t need to worry about it.

      Cheers, Arta

    Tummy control with a bikini? Who would’ve guessed.
    I’ve always had a hard time finding a suit that I like and that is comfortable. I finally found one last year, and now I have more information to help find something even better. Although I still won’t be in a bikini, my eyes have been opened to a bigger selection. Y’all have a nice selection of suits too.

    • Hey Nancy

      Tummy control bikini does sound as mission impossible but it is actually possible and we have listed few nice choices. Modern technologies are really cool and we all can benefit 🙂 All the functional materials and patterns can do miracles so it is all about finding the right swimsuit with the right features.

      Happy shopping, Arta

    I really like how your pictures make your descriptions so much easier to follow.
    I also think the use of swimming terms to navigate/snorkel our way around the site was lovely and unique and a nice way to put me at ease as I struggle with buying swimsuits and put it off constantly.
    You should come to Australia where you can put those tankini’s to work!

  8. JennH

    This is awesome! I didn’t even know they made bathing suits like this, and for this purpose! The only issue here for me is my stomach isn’t the problem. Are there any bathing suits made with the same problem in mind, only a little bit lower (i.e. hips, rear end)?

    • Hey Jenn

      There are so many functional features a bathing suit can offer that we can’t even imagine 🙂 There are also good things about the modern technologies and development of the world so it is up to us whether to benefit or not. I choose to benefit and take all the advantages the modern technologies can offer when going to the beach. I want to feel confident and to smooth out any lumps, bumps and love handles around the midsection. Tummy control bathing suits slim down the silhouette to boost the level of confidence and self-esteem.
      Have a look at my post on the best swimsuits for large hips to deal with your perceived flaw 🙂

    This is really an ingenious idea and I can’t help but share this article to my friends in social media. Clever and really inventive! I’m sure my women friends will surely like these options. There’s just one thing that bothers me while thinking about these Tummy Control Bathing Suits: Are there any health repercussions wearing these type of bathing suits? They press the tummy and belly, so they might also press some blood vessels or affect some digestive functions. 

    • Arta

      Hey Gomer

      Thank you for expressing your concern. There is not so big pressure in tummy control bathing suits to press some internal organs, it is to control the midsection, to gently shape it by avoiding the bulges and love handles and to smooth out the silhouette. But without doubt, it is important to get the right size to benefit from this swimsuit.

      Happy shopping, Arta

    My younger sister would vehemently refrain from putting on anything that exposes he belly as she is always self-conscious of her somewhat bulging belly. She has tried a slimming belt product before but did not receive any lasting benefits from it.

    This sounds like something she would love to try. She’s been contemplating going swimming for a while now, but develops cold feet knowing she wouldn’t get any swim suit that won’t end up exaggerating the extra bulges she is trying to conceal.

    The Tummy Control Bathing suits come in beautiful design, which adds much appeal to its functionality. I can see that they are stylish and even feature floral designs, which are some of my sister’s best designs.

    More women should know about this innovative product and get comfortable wearing them at the beach and swimming pools. And besides, there’s always an affordable style for every woman. I would love to know if there are special health considerations for using these outfits aside from their aesthetic value? 

    • Arta

      Hey there

    Personally, I love tankini bathing suits. Having had four kids, they make more sense to me now. At one time bikinis were fun, but now with all the lines on my belly bikinis no longer makes sense to me. 

    The one that I especially liked here and we’ll look at into buying is tummy control tankini. You’ve got some great products on your page I will look at them further.

    Now that summer is right around the corner it’s time to start gathering my bathing suits to enjoy on the beach.

  12. Topazdude

    Interesting and helpful article! Yes, I can categorically say that tummy control bathing suits are great tool for controlling and shaping ones body without sacrificing ones style, comfort and fashion. Changing body means searching for new swimsuits, especially for busty ladies looking for swimsuits that can hide their stomach, as summer is about to end to be of the great experience, need for choosing tummy control bathing suits is necessary. My wonderful sister have a drawer full of reject, as she is also busty and a love a nice fitted one to look cute. Those products you review are fascinating with nice designs which is enough for her to find her perfect swimsuit. I will love to see in one of them. Helpful site with helpful articles, great job man! I’m glad to know, and it’s not only me. I do like to inform my sister about this also. Thanks.

  13. Etah

    This sounds like magic to me.

    The Tummy control bikini is the most impressive and the swim dress most stylish and my favorite

    wow, so many problems solved.

    Honestly, I feel reluctant wearing swimsuit because I don’t like my stomach bulging out.

    Thanks for this, having swimsuits which triples up your beach confident.

    Awesome style, you have, thanks for sharing.

  14. Barbara

    I love your blog. It is my perfect bikini summer blog. I had read a previous post you wrote about tanking and found that one really useful. But this one is even better. My belly is not as flat as it use to be or firm as I would like it to be so finding a way to flatten it in the summer is always an issue. Once again you got all the suggestions I am looking for 

    Thank you

  15. Alenka

    Tummy control swimsuits are really great. I’ve been using them for the past couple of years and they’ve helped me feel slightly less self-conscious after my pregnancy with twins. In fact, even now when I’m (kind of) back in shape as I used to be, I like to wear this kind of swimwear because it just feels a lot more comfortable and I can run after my children (and there is a lot of running around with 3,5year old twins!) without too much worry. 

    I really enjoyed reading through your review and like all of your suggestions. The classic pink one being my favorite. 🙂

  16. Pentrental

    Wow what a great solution for those ladies who might want a slimming effect for their swimsuit. The mesh lining is pretty ingenious as I see that it’s not an easy feat to accomplish tummy slimming. I think my favorite of all these fine options is the tankini. These really are stylish, The Third Eye 2 Shirr Tankini is super cute. I’ll definitely be saving your post to reference and share with some friends, thank you so much!

  17. Dave Hayes

    What an interesting topic you chose and hit the nail on the head in terms of what women don’t like talking about or getting


    I have to say my wife falls into this category, but this product you have reviewed, seems to be slightly different, from reading it.

    The description of how it works, is good, and kind of defies belief that this could happen, even though the picture shows how it does, but I guess the buyer, would actually have to experience this first hand to discover it.

    There also seems to be a set for virtually every body ( pardon the pun!!)

    What isn’t clear from the review you have done is if you have first hand experience of this. Do you?

    Looking at their website, it is similar in look and feel to Jacamo, are they part of Jacamo and would they ship to the UK as that is not entirely clear

    Either way I enjoyed reading it and would feel happy recommending it to my wife

    • Arta

      Hey Dave

      They ship worldwide – just currently the international shipping to EU countries is stopped due to new regulations but this will be cleared in the short term.

      I have tried different tummy control bathing suits and I can say that there are swimsuits capable to control and shape your tummy but not all of them. Therefore, we are looking for the ones who do control and shape the body to post them here. As it is impossible to try all the swimsuits we post not only personal experiences but also summarise the views of the other women who have personally tried the swimsuits so you don’t have to. As personal testimonials are the best ad of the product 🙂

      Hope this helps, Arta

    Hello Arta; you have written a lot of information about swimsuit bath suits. Although I am 64 years old, I still prefer Tummy Control Bikini; with a higher waist you can feel good at the beach, even if you have a bit of tummy. Thanks for posting; I saw that your favorite brand are PilyO and Luxe by Lisa Vogel;  I like the Luxe by Lisa Vogel more.

    best regards

    Hello Arta, I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. This is what I was looking for my wife, we have two little boys and till giving birth she got pounds in her tummy which she doesn’t like. Tummy One Piece Control would be perfect for her, I will buy one for her, she will be amazed. Thank you for sharing these great suits. Is there anything similar for men?

    • Arta

      Hello Daniel

      Thank you for your comment. Tummy control bathing suits are a godsend to many women. I haven’t actually looked for anything similar for men but I will definitely have a look and let you know.

      Cheers, Arta

  20. Darren

    Wow I did not realise that Tummy Control Bathing Suits existed.  I am sure my partner would be interested in purchasing these.  I know my partner is self-conscious  about wearing swimsuits when we go to a beach holiday every year and I am sure this product will help her to gain confidence when she is bathing on the beach.

  21. Michel

    These swimsuits are very flattering, especially for ladies like me over the age of forty. Unfortunately everything starts to slide a little more downhill and get a bit saggier after this age. So unless you spend hours at the gym each week toning all the bits, the next best thing is to find clothing that suits ones changing figure.

    Unfortunately, the belly seems to be the most problematic part of most women’s bodies as they age, so the tummy control is a welcome addition to both swimwear and underwear. Do you have any recommended underwear with the same technology to recommend.

    • Hey Michel
      Tummy control bathing suits do miracles and make many women feeling wonderful and self-confident on the beach again. Yes, there are available also tummy control underwear – you are welcome to check here.
      Hope this helps!

    Feeling great about oneself when putting on a swim suit is germane and it cannot be attained with a protruding tummy. Since my wife has given birth, she is yet to tuck back in her tummy and as such, she wants to get some nice pairs of tummy control bathing suits and you’ve done a great job up here providing the details.
    i will check through the links as youve provided with research, best places to get them from. Great article and a helpful one.

  23. Nimrodngy

    Thank you very much for giving us this wonderful article. You really got me. Together with my wife we will go to Honeymoon in Tenerife and I want to give her a bathing suit of this kind. She loves the sun, but especially the beaches. This tummy control bathing suits are the best. My favorite model is Miraclesuit 6511966 Women’s Tiki Escape Black and White and my wife will definitely be very happy when she will see it. A big advantage is the price of $ 97.50 which is very cheap considering I found similar suits on other sites but at a higher price and with a lower quality. Thank you again. Wish you good luck !

  24. Nuttanee

    Oh my gosh, summer is coming and it is just right around the corner. I definitely need something to tone down my love handle that I attain over the past holiday season. I love the Tummy Control Tankini style, they look so comfortable and definitely my style. I am not a big fan of the onsie but I like these. Also, the Tummy Control Bikinis are super cute too. Thanks for sharing! 

  25. Donny

    Went to Cape town a month ago and my wife wouldn’t go out of her dress by the beach because she had developed quite a tummy during the time of her pregnancy I guess this will be a short term solution for a swim. Wasn’t expecting I would see a tummy controlling bikini I can’t work out how the math works but I think I’ll let that pass and try out the tummy control swim dress. My newly mother wife now is getting obsessed with looking a little descent, hmmm things babies can make women do. Thanks for this article hey it was real helpful.

  26. Feji ben

  28. PaFoster

    Let’s be honest here…. I am way out of my element for leaving any comment that reflects my experience with a tummy controlling bathing suit…..not saying that there have not been times in the past where I carried a few extra pounds and could have benefited from one.  Reading through your article though, I can see that these are designed to help provide a solution for controlling how a women’s body is perceived, and without having to make sacrifices for comfort…in other words… these will not squeeze the air out of you.  My wife is on a weight loss journey right now, and I know she will want to take a look at the options you have provided in this article.  Thank you for sharing!

  29. Juliet

    Thanks for this information, I never knew I would were a swimsuit ever again. I was going to settle for a T-shirt and a pair of shorts at the sea side.

    Your post has an abundance of information on tummy control bathing suits. There are a lot of women who haven’t got the confidence to wear swimsuits because of the way they feel, however, Tummy control bathing suits allow for self-conscious women to feel more confident on the beach or around the pool. It is sad they even have to fell like this in the first place.

    I particularly like the tummy control swim dress, not only for the way it can make a woman look but I think it’s stylish and rather elegant.

    judging by other visitors’ comments it’s great you are helping so many people who are looking for this type of swimsuit, Great work!
