We updated this article in July 2022 to ensure all products and styles selected by the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab for summer 2022 were in stock and correctly priced.


Hitting the beach or pool is all about relaxing and having fun, so the last thing you should worry about is feeling self-conscious in a bathing suit. A swimsuit with tummy control should not only look great, but also feel comfortable and hold up to regular use so it'll last for more than just a few wears.

The fiber scientists in the Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab test one-piece swimsuits and two-piece bathing suits to find the ones that live up to their slimming promises. Besides testing the durability to see whether fabric easily gets damaged from rough surfaces, we also have real testers give feedback on fit and slimming capabilities. We've even measured our testers to see if compressive bathing suits actually take inches off their waists, hips and tummies. In recent years, we reviewed over 1,400 ratings from our Lab and consumer tests.

Our top picks:

Slimming swimsuits can have built-in shapewear that feels more compressive to physically smooth bulges, or they can use design techniques to look flattering without feeling restrictive. Some great slimming design elements are ruching, diagonal lines, color-blocking with darker colors on the bottom, and strategic coverage and cut-outs to give the most flattering appearances. The picks ahead are either from brands that have done well in our tests or are newer styles with unique features and rave reviews from consumers. Here are the best slimming swimsuits you can buy, including slimming swimsuits for large busts, flattering swimsuits from Amazon and more.
