The most flattering shapewear swimsuits to feel your most confident self on the beach this summer

We are 100% here for being body positive on all occasions and honestly, your body is truly beautiful just the way it is. But, sometimes you might feel a little self-conscious, particularly when it comes to stripping down to your swimwear by the pool or on the beach. 

On those occasions, you may choose solution-based swimwear – your choice entirely. So, if you are looking for extra support, we’ve got your back. And your front… allow GLAMOUR to present the best tummy control swimsuit and shapewear swimsuits from the hottest swimwear brands for summer 2022 and beyond. 

Because, however much you love your curves, some days you may feel extra vulnerable. Wearing the wrong bikini that sags and bags (you know, the kind of swimwear that you’re always pulling at) can make you feel more exposed than if you were naked. And when you’re trying to relax by the pool or have fun at the beach, you want to feel confident and at ease.

One of our tips is to look for retro, high-waisted bikini bottom styles, which will always look good on curvy tummies. One-piece swimsuits are another clever choice. Oh, and have you checked out Amazon for swimwear recently? They have a goddess-worthy black swimsuit with sheer panel and powermesh hidden under the midriff-area that will upgrade any beachside *lewk.*

Elsewhere, Marks & Spencer of course have brilliant swimwear options. We love the sweet gingham bandeau style and the totally on-trend square-neck swimsuit this season. Figleaves are also a trusted beachwear brand and their bright yellow floral bikini bottoms are currently on sale on ASOS. The elegant blue and white print swimsuit is bringing all the holiday vibes too.

H&M have a great striped shaping swimsuit that gives nautical chic while La Redoute’s classic monochrome style is made from 84% recycled polyester for a sustainable choice. Add a pair of sunglasses and some statement sandals and you’re good to go before you can say, ‘pina coladas for everyone!’
