At different times in our lives we might need a little extra help in firming and smoothing the silhouette. Fortunately there are a lot of options for figure-flattering shape enhancing control swimwear and you don't have to compromise on fashion or style either.

High waist bikini briefs with tummy control and bra sized bikini tops by Pour Moi.
Discover this season's most stylish tummy control swimwear. Looking for a figure enhancing miracle? Some brands are charging £140/$200 for a control swimsuit. That's a big investment for something you don't want to wear every day of your holiday. Fortunately, there are plenty of great options in the £20-£50 category and it's a good idea to think outside the box when you're looking for tummy control swimwear. Sometimes a tankini (bra-sized if you have a fuller bust) teamed with tummy-control high waist pants can be more flattering than a one-piece, plus you get a better fit top and bottom that you are likely to with a one-piece. Or perhaps try a swimsuit with a sarong or 'skirtini' if you want more coverage on the hip or thighs around the pool. Before you overspend on just one bathing suit think about how you can mix and match from some current items you already own teamed sale swimwear.
This navy and red underwired bikini top with high waist control bottoms by Pour Moi is pretty timeless and can be updated easily with the latest plain beach cover up. Part of a larger polka dot and zig-zag collection, it is sold in separates and comprises high-waist control briefs, underwired, non-padded bra-sized bikini (above) to HH cup. Featuring serious tummy control and a pretty pattern, but it's worth noticing that these are classic brief shape - not shorts - cut fairly high on the side. Great for women with a pert bottom and regular thighs who are looking for control in the tummy area only.
Alternatively, if you prefer more coverage in your bikini bottoms, try these 50s style high waist pants which offer tummy control, generous coverage to the rear and a lower leg cut.
On a budget? These vintage inspired Aloha control pants can be matched with any existing plain red, white or navy bikini top you have, or with the matching tankini.
The Aloha tankini is bra sized with underwire to G cup in 32-38 bands (UK sizing). Equating to a 32I to 38I in the US. At just £29/$45 it is one of the most affordable bra-sized tankinis around for summer 2015. Team it with a red or navy short/brief and you've got a supportive halterneck swim top with flattering deep V - perfect around the pool or for serious swimming. The concealed bra ties at the back with 3 settings. If you love your wardrobe to co-ordinate, then you'll be interested in the matching sarong in the Aloha collection. It's the same pattern, but printed on to 100% polyester rather than polyamide (swimwear fabric). A polyester sarong is lightweight, non-crease which makes it perfect for packing. Plus it can be rinsed out after a hard day around the pool and used as scarf over a simple summer dress.

The high waisted bikini bottoms of this tropical print retro style bikini feature a tummy control panel and low cut leg. Wide halter ties balance out the proportions, as larger style bikini bottoms can drown a thin strap, tiny bikini top.

Shop the Pour Moi swimwear collection for this and other great retro inspired bikinis designed to be figure enhancing and supportive to the bust.
We hope we've inspired you to give tummy control swimwear another look. With designs that look this good both in and out of the water there's no reason not to take advantage of the hidden 'miracle' wear.
