These 11 Flattering AF Swimsuits Won’t Dig Into Your Skin or Cut Off Your Circulation

These 11 Flattering AF Swimsuits Won’t Dig Into Your Skin or Cut Off Your Circulation

Regardless of your body type, shape, and size, the battle of trying to find a figure-flattering and actually cute swimsuit that doesn’t dig into your skin can be a major challenge. Finding a swimsuit that’s not too loose nor too tight (because a saggy swimsuit is almost worse than one that digs in) is no easy feat.

Whether we’re talking about a bikini, sexy one-piece or tankini, even if the fit of your swimsuit of choice is ~almost~ spot on, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t cut into your skin in some places and droop in others. Sizing up or down is certainly an option, but it’s not foolproof.

Fortunately, there are factors aside from size considerations that can help you find the best anti-digging swimsuit for your body shape that won’t put you at risk for a wardrobe malfunction—and that won’t cut off your circulation, for that matter. Like seamless underwear and bras, seamless and anti-elastic swimwear is also a thing that gives more stretch (in all directions) and helps the garment stick to your body like a second skin.

Another great anti-dig option is ruched and smocked fabrics that offer more stretch and movement and tend to be elastic-free — which is often the culprit. Scroll through below to check out some of our favorite swimsuits that won’t pinch your skin or create the illusion of the dreaded “muffin top” situation.
