Eat Healthy

Eating healthy is always the most important key to losing weight and looking fit, especially in a swimsuit. To look your best, many doctors and weight loss professionals recommend cutting out dairy and salt intake, or at least reducing it. Dairy can lead to trouble digesting foods which in turn leads to gas and bloating, which not only makes one feel like they look less than their best, but is not what is needed to look great at the beach.

Eating less salt reduces water retention as well as bloating, so cutting back a little will help you look your best in a swimsuit. Watch out for sodium intake in unexpected places, such as processed and pre-packaged foods.


Good posture has a way of making us feel and look lean and fantastic in a swimsuit. Research has shown that those with good posture are perceived as more confident, taller, in better behavior and more attractive than those without good posture. Body language expert, Patti Wood suggests that while sitting at the beach, to sit with your knees up. "Not only does it lift the fat off your thighs, it also draws eyes to your upper body and knees, creating a slim line."
