Slimming Swimsuits


"We're Diving In"! That's the exclamation you'll find on the SPANX® website these days as the bulge battling behemoth unveils a new line of cute swimsuits. Calling it shapewear you can swim in, designer Sarah Blakely says it has the body slimming benefits you've come to love from her company that first found fame in footless control-top tights.

Since our own days of triangle tops and stringy bikini bottoms are mostly over, you have our attention SPANX!

Each suit has a lightweight inner body shaper and leg openings that flare at the hips (so as not to squeeze the bejeezus out of your bulges & bumps). What we love about this line is that these suits don't look like ol' lady resort wear. Refreshingly cute for slimming swimwear, Skinny Scoopers feel these might actually be worth a try.

Here are a few of our favorite picks from the 2010 collection:

1shoulderOne shoulder One Piece, $178 in Black/Vanilla or Chocolate/Vanilla.

convertible1_pieceConvertible One Piece comes in Teal, Flamingo, and Black. $178

deep_v_redSPANX Deep V One Piece is Chris' favorite from the line. $178 in Red or Black.

tankini_brownThe Tankini One Piece comes in Teal, Chocolate, and Black with cute contrasting waistband. $178

triangle_tankini_ruffleAnother favorite here, the Triangle Tankini is $128 and comes in Pool, Flamingo, and Black.

triangle_topLove this one that reminds us of retro Hollywood glamour. The Triangle Top One Piece is $198 and comes in Flamingo, Black, and Teal.

They are darling. Not cheap, but probably worth the money if that is the only way one would be seen in public. I love them!
