"I used to compromise on an unflattering top or bottom, but now I see that I don't have to," says Jacinda Carlisle, 36, a freelance fashion public relations agent. Thanks to its unique cutaway style, this suit (Tara Grinna Swimwear, $139) accentuates what Carlisle likes most (her small waist) and hides what she's self-conscious about (her hips). It's both sexy and demure—and, as she says, "definitely worthy of a trip to the Caribbean."
