You can also find us online or at www.canyonbeachwear.com. you can find us on Facebook and twitter as well under canyonbeachwear and today we're gonna be talking about swimwear. The number one question on every girls mind is how not to look fat in a bikini. Well, I dont have all the answers but I have some tips. The first thing would be, get a tan. Nobody likes to look at a pale person in a bikini. A good tan will always help. Putting a little tan on your skin definitely makes you look a leaner, a little longer. Another would be, get some cellulite cream it tightens your skin so it'll make all your muscles stand out.You put that on your stomach and the back of your legs it'll make everything look nice and tight so no one will know the difference. Another would be eat light in the morning eat a light breakfast but full of protein so that keeps you full throughout the day. but definitely if your going out to a pool party stay away from the munchies. Do not eat pick up little appetizers and in them while your in your suit. Its just going to make you feel more bloated and more gross. Another trick of the trade I know stars such as Audrina Patridge and LC do a lot of crunches before they go to the pool. So put in a nice couple sets of crunches. Your abs will look a little bit tighter. Your skin will be definitely tighter and get yourself a good cover up. A good cover up could go a long way if you have a really cute cover up its going to make you feel like a queen in y our bikini. A good cover up is like a nice cute dress that you could put over your bikini. Baby stops.
