How we chose the best tummy control swimsuits
We have trawled through hundreds of tummy control swimsuit styles to find the best looks that are flattering, well-made and have a great fit. While we aren't able to try on every swimsuit in this edit, we only chose swimsuits that ticked the following boxes:
- Style: While more staid styles might be the taste of some, we decided to look for trendy swimsuits with not just tummy control but also a chic, fun or sexy silhouette - and in some cases, all three!
- Price: We included swimsuits from various price points with the aim to have tummy control options for every budget.
- Popularity: Having written about swimwear for HELLO! Online for years, I have studied the numbers and know the types of looks our readers want and love - and there are some swimsuit looks and brands that have proven to be winners time and time again.
- Flattering fit and compression: I personally shop tummy control swimsuits for myself, and I've made sure to include swimsuits from different compression levels, from light compression to shapewear-style looks, as well as swimsuits that have good coverage, support and adjustable straps.
So if you’re ready to take the plunge, take a look at where you can buy the best tummy control swimsuits of 2023.
