Sage Salzer, 31
Before: A skimpy tankini leaves Sage's midsection bulging; the splashy print makes her bulk up even more.
After: Black always knocks off a few pounds, but this one-piece (Sirena, $37*) isn't just safe, it's positively snappy: White bands at the bust capture the eye, moving scrutiny away from her bottom half. "I want to embrace my curves," Sage says. "I don't want to think in terms of 'when I lose ten pounds' but find what looks good now."
