Seek Out Darker Colours for a Slimming Effect

Dark colours are your best friend when it comes to swimsuits for love handles. Opting for black, navy, or darker tones creates an illusion of a slimmer silhouette.

Swimsuits for Love Handles

Our Iris Longer Length Swimsuit in Grey Ombre has stretchy fabric and a tummy control design which will smooth out any problem areas. The light bust support and adjustable straps are the best way to help you achieve the perfect fit. The colour scheme on this swimsuit is not only flattering but will make you feel amazing too. Plus-size ladies will be pleased to know that this is one of our swimsuits that is available in larger sizes. This swimsuit can be bought in a UK size 10 to 24, so you can swim on the beach this summer with the body confidence you deserve. 

High Waisted Is Your Friend

The Best Swimsuits for Love Handles

The illusion of a high waist is a game-changer for love handles. A swimsuit like this Stella Longer Length Clipback Swimsuit in Navy and Jade is ideal for those looking to disguise pesky love handles. This one-piece swimsuit offers excellent coverage and support, and the high-waisted style will draw the eye to your slim waist, away from the problem areas. Made with high-quality, eco-friendly material, this swimsuit has light tummy control, so it will provide a comfortable fit and flattering shape to enhance your curves.

Find the Perfect One-Piece Suit

Swimwear for Love Handles

One-piece swimsuits are a great option for those looking for full coverage and a slimming effect. Our Sleek Longer Length Swimsuit in Animal Print Teal is not only stylish but it is specifically designed to help add definition and shape to your body. The high neck and animal print will give an amazing silhouette, particularly to an hourglass figure, and you’ll feel wonderful when wearing this on the beach or by the pool. This longer-length swimsuit is available for ladies who wear a UK dress size between 8 and 20.

Opt for Tummy-Control Swimsuits

Tummy Control Swimwear

Many of our swimsuits come with inbuild light tummy control, so you’ll feel supported across the midriff area no matter what. Our best tummy-control swimsuits are specifically designed to target the midsection and provide extra support. Our Pink Ombre Iris Longer Length swimsuit is a fantastic option. Its innovative design and tummy control fabric will smooth out your love handles and give you the confidence to enjoy your summer holiday from start to finish. You’ll also enjoy the fact that this style is made from a high-quality material which has UV 50+ protection. This swimsuit also offers sun cream and oil resistance.

Use A Strategically Placed Print

 Swimsuits for Love Handles


If you are trying to draw attention away from your mid-section, why not draw the eyes to your upper body with the Nancy Longer Length Swimsuit in Leopard? It’ll offer you a flattering and comfortable fit with its all-over light control fabric. Those who are taller or who have a longer body will love this style just a little bit more as this swimsuit measures around 5cm longer in the body loop than a standard swimsuit, so you won’t have it pulling in awkward directions. The leopard print design across the bust is a great way to draw attention away from your waist and hips and to your top half instead. The leopard print design is also bang on trend, and you’ll feel fabulous when donning this swimsuit this summer. Available to buy from us in a UK size 8 – 24.

Need More Coverage

Swimsuits with Legs That Cover Love Handles

There are times when you just want a bit more coverage and support from your bathing suit. Our stylish Molly Longer Length Legsuit in Midnight Sea could be just the ticket. This style will work wonders in hiding any problem areas around the tummy area. The design adds a touch of class while diverting attention from love handles. It's a perfect choice for those looking for both style and good coverage. This style starts at a UK size 8 and goes right up to a UK size 28, perfect for those who are looking for great coverage, longer length and a plus size swimsuit. Wearing the right size pays dividends when it comes to comfort on the beach. 

The Versatility of Ruching

Love Handle Swimwear 

Look and feel fantastic in the Women's Lucille Longer Length Swimsuit, which has tummy control and flattering ruching on the body, which will slim your silhouette. Add in the lightly padded cups, and this beautiful swimsuit is perfect for ladies with a fuller figure who may be trying to disguise problem love handles. The Lucille Longer, Length Swimsuit in Evergreen Blooms, is also one of our many longer-length swimsuits, which ensure a perfect fit every time. Like many of our swimsuits, the Lucille range is made from our chlorine proof swimwear fabric, so it's suitable for use in the pool as well as on the beach. If you are a regular swimmer, you can be reassured that our swimwear fabric will last twice as long as standard swimwear material when used in a chlorinated pool. So if you are buying this swimsuit for the beach, you'll be pleased to know that it'll also go the distance when you use it in the pool back home. This swimsuit is available in UK sizes 10 – 20. 

Supportive Tops for Larger Busts

Bust Support Swimwear

If you have a larger bust and love handles, it's important to find a swimsuit that offers the right support. Our Nancy Longer Length Swimsuit in Isola Aqua provides both style and functionality. This swimming costume offers a comfortable and flattering fit in for a long torso with all-over light control to slim and supports your body. It's particularly suitable for ladies with a larger chest, as this style offers better coverage and support. Like so much of our swimwear, this swimsuit is made from our recycled Econyl® textile yarn. This is created using waste plastics which might have otherwise been discarded in the ocean. You can purchase this swimsuit in a UK size 10 – 24.

Embrace Bright Colors

Swimsuits for Love Handles 

While darker colours are generally recommended for hiding a muffin top, don't be afraid to embrace a bright colour and feel confident doing so. A bright swimsuit like our Lucille Longer Length Swimsuit in Pink might seem like a strange choice when you are trying to hide what you perceive as a problem area, but this swimsuit has you covered. The front lining teamed with control fabric will have you wondering why you don’t own this style of tummy control swimsuit in more colours.
