Plus size models now have a chance for a big break—something that has never happened before. In all certainty, yes! Skinny or not, not all des look good on every body type.
Pay attention to your tummy
Deep inside us is the need to dress not just for ourselves but also for other people. There are 6 main plus size body types: rectangle, triangle or pear, inverted triangle, apple or round, hourglass, and diamond.
Problem areas are the part of your body that is the least flattering. If the standard beauty criteria are to be followed, you have to camouflage them so that:. Every plus size lady, whatever body shape she has, will always have a bulging tummy issue. A peplum tankini is a great example. It hugs the waist and flares at the bottom creating a contrast that slims down the waist. You can also go with cutouts.
The more exposed skin there is, the more daring the look is. Or you can go for mesh cutouts which exposes the skin yet leaves some to the imagination.

It shapes your waist, comfortably tucks in your tummy fats, and gets rid of that spilling fat effect that usually happens when a plus size lady wears a body-hugging swimsuit.
Instead, aim for a more lift and sag-free look. Shop for bras that have proper boning, comfy underwire, and thin padding. Avoid thick padding at all cost. Not all of them are uncomfortable, mind you. If you want to invest in a comfortable, high-quality swimsuit bra, try Upbra.
In fact, the brand applied for a patent because it invented a unique mechanism quite different from a typical push-up bra—it allows the wearer to adjust her cleavage into four different levels. Wear tops with extra details like ruffles and frills.
Know your body type and its “problem areas”
You can also wear a printed top. If you do, pair it with a dark plain colored bottom to create contrast. This technique works well for women who have big hips as dark color de-emphasizes the hips while print enhances the bust. Two days before your beach day, avoid foods that cause the stomach to balloon. To camouflage big arms and broad shoulders, look for a swimsuit with a plunging neckline. Not only does it elongate the torso but also draw the eyes in the middle and keep them there—meaning, away from your shoulders and arms.

The deeper the plunge, the more slimming it is. This is always perfect for women with small breasts. Only buy one with additional breast support like this one. The plunge is very deep but the mesh securely holds it together. Vertical and diagonal lines are also great for slimming your body down for the same reason that it keeps the eyes in the middle, downplaying your arms and shoulders.

The contrast of black and white helps to emphasize that spliced diagonal effect making it even more slimming and flattering. Second, avoid swimsuits with tiny multiple straps at the back as each strap will into dig into your skin and create individual folds, resulting in those flesh folds. You wanna shop for bathing suits with regular single straps on both shoulders. If you do have a back fat caused NOT by your swimsuit, look for one piece or bikini tops that cover the back.
You can hide it or you can flaunt it. If you want to hide it, go for tankinis and swim dresses with longer hemlines. Slim or fat, almost everyone has it. Heck, even Kim Kardashian has it. It would be a shame to ditch bikinis for bulky swim dresses just to cover it up.

The tummy is quite enough, thankyouverymuch. How about that? If your criteria for looking good is looking skinny in a swimsuit, then the answer is no. The right swimsuit for your body type, in a degree, will slim you down, but it has limitations. Your self-esteem has a big part in it too, as well as the criteria you set for yourself.
This is why the inclusion of plus size models like Ashley Graham in the runway is a big, big step for plus size women to finally feel that they belong. Messages like embrace your body sounds great and all.
But with the obvious all-skinny-models-only walking the runway, is that even realistic? And hopefully, the sizing is gonna get better. In fact, I probably own all styles except one: skinny jeans.
The good news? Note: This Everything that an hourglass body is, a rectangle body is not.
I guess the Belly bulge, love handles, tummy fats. We may call them different names but in one thing we all agree: When dressing up, we want them hidden, camouflaged, downplayed.
