Birgit, 53 | Body Type: Small bust
Bathing Suit Drama: Birgit dreams of a suit that can enhance her shape—and it definitely isn't the before number pictured here. The poor fit makes her top half look small and, even worse, droopy.

Happy Ending: A structured maillot with push-up cups and flirty contrast piping carves out a perky bustline and creates the illusion of an hourglass shape. "It's simply perfect," she says. "I love the elegant design, and the colors and lines make me look curvy."
