Or you could go under cover
What you can't fix, hide with the help of these magic swimsuits
The Slimsuit, Debenhams, €68
Available in three colours, in sizes 10 to 20 and up to an F cup, the Slimsuit (right) is a 'diet in a swimsuit'.
A waist panel cinches in an hourglass figure while a control panel at the midriff flattens the tummy. The two layers of fabric keep the one piece looking chic and effortless.
Bodyshaper Tummy Control Swimsuit, M&S, €40
The power-mesh lining of the M&S swimsuit (right) holds and shapes while the ruched detailing on the tummy gives a slimming effect. Available in vibrant orange or classic navy.
