New York: If you are a woman wary of wearing swimming costume because of body weight, you should try ‘Miraclesuit’ – it promises to make you look 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds.
The one-piece bathing suits available at Bloomingdale’s, priced between 130 dollars to 180 dollars, is selling like hot cakes.
Apparently, the suit’s deep V-neck ac centuates the curves of the bust, and the ruching around the waist disguises the bulge of the belly and lengthens the torso.
The costume is made of Miratex, a patented spandex material with three times the amount of Lycra used in normal bathing suits.
Plus-size model Nicole Le bris, 29, who tried the Reebok suit says it makes her look slimmer.
"The Miraclesuit accentuates my curves in a good way. It makes my waist look small, and the low-cut neckline and the high-cut bikini line makes me look taller," the New York Post quoted her, as saying.
She added: "The leg openings are too tight. I have big hips, and it feels like it’s cutting in."
Sandra Davidoff, a spokeswoman for Miraclesuit, said: "What woman wouldn’t want to look 10 pounds lighter? With the suit, you can have your cake and eat it, too."
The swimwear comes in sizes 8 through 14.
