Miraclesuit Solid Rialto Swimsuit
This Rialto suit from slimming experts Miraclesuit delivers on its promise to help you look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds (if you can get dressed that fast!).

Note: the company recommends ordering one size bigger than your usual size. Available in black, blue, red, and eggplant, sizes 6 to 16.
Spanx High Style Banded One Piece
As thankful as we are for Spanx under our clothes, we’re even more grateful for its skinny-ifying capabilities when at the beach. This banded one-piece suit uses a shaping mesh liner to slim the tummy, love handles and back, allowing you to look trimmer and slimmer. We also love the sweet ruffle detail that draws attention upward. Available in bloom (shown) and black, sizes 6 to 16.
L.L. Bean Slimming Tanksuit, V-Neck Halter
Long one of our go-to sites for mom-friendly swimwear, L.L. Bean offers effective shaping in this slimming tank.

Available in black, misses’ and D-cup sizes 8 to 18, as well as women’s sizes 18W to 26W.
Merona Women’s One Piece Minimizer Swim Dress
A swim dress that’s retro-cute and not dowdy? Yes, please! This nautical swim dress provides stylish coverage for a day at the beach at a fraction of the cost of most minimizing suits.

Also available in all-black, sizes S to XL.

Tommy Bahama Cat Island Shirred Bandeau One-Piece
Meow! This leopard print bandeau one-piece suit from Tommy Bahama keeps everything right where it should be. The tummy control panel offers a flattering, flattening fit, and foam cups add support.

Miraclesuit Solid Isabella Swimsuit
This feminine and flattering halter one-piece lives up to its name. The ruffle shirring down the center of the suit helps to minimize your waist and lengthen your torso, while the halter neckline and soft cup bra accentuate your bust (but mamas with a D cup or larger will likely want greater support in an underwire suit).
