  • Canyon Beachwear

    1136 Third Ave., 917-432-0732

    Brands like Moschino and Pompei Beach cater to high-end shoppers, but Canyon stocks plenty of budget-friendly options too. A Moontide bikini ($124) solves the muffin-top dilemma with a less constricting waistband, while a Melissa Odabash suit ($148) with thin side-straps elongates legs to draw attention away from the hips. Saleswomen cheerfully answer your body-qualm questions and bring you new styles to try; the dressing rooms have kind, incandescent lighting, and a happy Top 40 soundtrack forestalls any mood swings.
