From faking a fit body to making a fit body, it's all about carving out those curves! You could jump into the black and white "body-blocking" trend for an instant way to trick the eye. The dramatic contrast offers an optical illusion that can highlight and hide (Calvin Klein Side Stripe Pant $69, calvinklein.com; Blaine Dress $198, bcbg.com). And if you're looking to tone your actual tush and more, a brand new activewear line will help you carry the weight. W8Fit's innovative collection features hidden pockets for credit card-sized weights. The added resistance while working out or just running errands is a quick and easy way to feel the burn and shape up for summer ($52 & up, w8fit.com).
For summer tanks, racerbacks and sheer styles, girlfriends have new options they don't have to hide. Spanx's just-debuted Bra-Vo sheer back bra features a lightweight mesh panel that's both supportive and smoothing, while Maidenform's Charmed bras offer up lace side bands, perfect under low-cut tanks and loose tees (Bra-Vo Bra $72, Spanx.com; Lace and Mesh Bras $22-24, maidenform.com).
And brand new to the US, Curvy Kate creates bras with stylish straps that are too pretty to conceal, so slip into an off-the-shoulder top and fear peek-a-boo moments no more ($29-$78, barenecessities.com).
