Looking for the best affordable handbags, and by best I mean – handbags that are not only made well but also stylish, is quite the challenge.

As the warm weather approaches or a long awaited sunny vacation, many women find themselves in the torturous battle to find stylish and affordable bathing suits that also hide unwanted stomach fat. Finding a flattering swimsuit when you’re not so happy with your tummy is a challenge for all body types which include both “skinny fat” and plus size body frames. And most bathing suits designed to control tummy bulge are typically not the most stylish and super expensive.
To combat this problem, I have scoured the web to find the best bathing suits that not only hide stomach fat but are also super cute and affordable! There are many swimsuit designs, prints, and colors to help disguise the unwanted tummy and once you know what to look for you will no longer struggle to find a bathing suit you will love and feel comfortable in.
