Tired of trying to remember to suck in your belly? Relax and let these suits do the work. Their secret: high-tech fabrics and clever detailing. Taking off a few inches was never so easy (or chic!)
The ruching is a tummy camouflager; drawstring hip ties let you control the leg height. Up to size 16.
The genius here is in the fit: The top lifts and supports like a really good bra; the bottom gives full coverage. Up to XL.
The uneven dark and bright spots create a slenderizing optical illusion. The strap keeps the bandeau in place.
The plunging V is sexy and slimming; the ruffle frames the face. The bottom line: feminine but not too girly. Up to size 18.
Panels of extra-strong Lycra encourage your curves to shine. The one-shoulder style draws the eye upward. Up to size 16.
$158; Macy’s, 212-695-4400
The fun, retro styling makes a statement; the high-waisted bottom slims that pesky lower abdomen. A color rush!
$275; Salon9, 212-354-9220
All the smarts of shape wear. The Lycra sucks you in; the sheer detailing is lingerie-like. Comes in sizes up to 16.
Not-so-basic black: Low leg styling elongates the midsection while the sliver cutouts lend a bit of sex appeal.
