Tummy control swimwear to smooth the silhouette and boost your beach confidence. Choose from control swimsuits or bikini tops with matching control bottoms. New to the shape swimwear scene are tankinis featuring integrated control power mesh linings which can be teamed with high waist tummy control briefs. The beauty of this combination is that you can buy the correct sizes for top and bottom and mix and match tankinis with different bottoms to make your holiday wardrobe appear more varied at the pool. For more rear coverage on the bottom, look out for our low cut swim shorts and bikini bottoms with tummy control. Leading brands which produce control swimwear include Pour Moi, Fantasie and Self Collection.

Which control swimwear is best for you?

  • tummy control swimsuits in dress sizes with average bust support
  • high waisted bikini bottoms with tummy control panel
  • underwired control swimsuits for big busts
  • underwired tankinis for fuller busts featuring tummy control power mesh lining
  • shape enhancing swimwear with ruching and clever draping, but not power mesh linings - easier to get on and off when wet!
  • shapewear swimwear with high than average elastane content (over 20%) and multiple layers of fabric

Just looking for a relaxed amount of tummy control without the full shapewear experience? We recommend a non-lined bikini brief or swimsuit with 20% elastane in a high waist style or a mid rise style, perhaps with a fold down panel for extra camouflage.
