Pick the Perfect Bathing Suit
"I grew up in Florida, where shopping for a swimsuit is as common as a trip to the dry cleaners," says Gail Gruber Siegel, GG's Beauty & Style editor. "The process is rarely fun, but there are some great suits out there—for even the curviest of us. After sifting through dozens of new styles, I fell in love with this one-piece by Karla Colletto (instyleswimwear.com, $235). The trendy cutout design is tasteful, the color is flattering on all skin tones and has the same pound-subtracting effect as black, and the smart draping really camouflages a less-than-taut tummy."
