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. The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab tests bathing suits that claim to have shapewear benefits to find the ones that live up to their promises.
