One detail on this flattering swimsuit — on sale for $17 — has 18,000+ shoppers hooked

It's time to get away for some sunshine and relaxation. If you are one of the smarties who has a warm-weather excursion in the works, you'll want to grab a flattering new swimsuit. And lucky you — or shall we say, luckier you — this is the time of year when you can score major savings on beachwear. Amazon has marked down the super-flattering Hilor Crossover Swimsuit to as little as $17.

Large bust? The criss-cross design is both flattering and supportive.

$38 at Amazon

The current price of this super-popular swimsuit is simply stellar: It’s on sale for as low as $17, although the sale price varies depending on the color and size. However, with flattering one-piece swimsuits from bigger brands going for upwards of $70, less than $20 for certain sizes and shades of this tummy-cinching wonder (and just $23 to $30 for other sale varieties), this one-piece definitely deserves a place in your summer wardrobe.

This fetching swimsuit is one of those brilliantly designed items that uses optical illusion to make every body look its best. With strategically placed sheer mesh stripes and a design that shows off shoulders and collarbones, it deserves a place in the lightly populated pantheon of flattering-for-everyone swimwear.

In photos, the Hilor Crossover Swimsuit looks like it has space between the straps, but these areas are actually filled with supportive mesh panels — no skin is revealed. The mesh detailing at the waist breaks up that sea of fabric you see on most one-piece swimsuits and suggests an hourglass shape even if you don't have one. It’s the same design science that makes a color-block suit so flattering. An optical illusion, like we said — and boy, does it work!

Over 18,000 Amazon shoppers have given the Hilor Crossover Swimsuit a sunshine-y five-star rating, with many raving about how the one-piece flatters their figure.

“After four kids and four C-sections, finding a swimsuit I feel comfortable in is a nightmare!” one now-happy mom reported. “I am not quite plus-sized, but in the middle of regular and plus size, with extra mom pooch in the middle. This suit makes me feel amazing. I have not felt excited to put a swimsuit on since high school, and this suit makes me pumped! It fits perfect and is so comfortable.”

"This suit is so flattering AND comfortable!! Absolutely love it!" gushed a fan. "I always size up one size larger in bathing suits, and this size fit me perfectly. ... Finding a bathing suit that looks and feels this good is like winning the lottery!"

This is not just a swimsuit that looks good in front of the mirror at home, either. It’s designed for movement. Said one mom: “Love the support and well-made structure of this suit. It’s double-lined and very comfortable. I wanted something cute for the beach that I could chase my kids around in. It doesn’t move out of place when moving around and has nice support in the chest. It hugs my waist without any bulging or feeling squished in anywhere.”

And gals with bigger busts — no need to fret! Reviewers say this piece offers plenty of support. "This suit is very flattering, creating a slimming look with the horizontal stripes in the midsection," said one curvy queen. "I was concerned the straps would not be up to the challenge of supporting my large bust, but they did!" The reviewer in question did add, however, "This is not a suit that should be purchased for longevity."

Heads up: The word on this suit — even from the manufacturer — is that it runs small. So order at least one size up. "Love everything about this suit... except it runs a bit small, and the straps are very tight on the shoulders," said a wearer. "Other than that, love the coverage and the style!!!"

Also keep in mind that your tan lines in this swimsuit might run a little... stripey. "I really do like this swimsuit but I did not think about the tan lines!" lamented one customer. "After a day on the beach, I looked like a zebra! It was great support for my boobs and belly, though. So I'll wear it again, but maybe indoor pool or water park."

This slimming swimsuit has over 18,000 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers who praise its figure-flattering details and tummy-control capabilities.
