Well, I Went Swimsuit Shopping



Recommended Posts

I am so sorry you were ill and couldn't swim or use the hot tub. Sounds like you will need to plan a post-vacation vacation or getaway so you can wear your new suit (or head to the YMCA).

I go back on vacation in 4 weeks, so I definitely plan to do some swimming then!

Try Hydrochic.com They focus on modesty suits for those who want more coverage. They are very popular with those who want more coverage for religious reasons. I haven't been there in a while so their suit may actually have too much coverage for you, but it's an option.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I had the best luck finding suits at target. I could never find regular clothes there but have always been able to get swim wear. I got my step-daughter swim shorts there this season.

It just doesn't get any better. I've gotten down to a size 2-4 and the only suits they make in those sizes are skimpy tiny bikini bottoms! I have way too much loose skin that needs to be covered for that! The boy shorts cut off at the wrong part of my thighs and the high waisted bikinis look odd on me too. I need a high cut brief of soemthing.

And Swimsuits for All is not, they only go down to a size 8!

Lands End goes down to a 2, LL Bean goes down to a 4. They have some nice suits.

Also, I found a nice pair of swim bottoms on Amazon- bike short length- goes to mid thigh, used them snorkeling last week & they were great-

Lands end is my absolute go to for swim suits. They have suits with underwire and compression to keep the girls where they belong and the jiggles contained. They also aren't trying to show off everything I have and then some. Make sure you check for coupon codes. No sense paying full price if you don't have to!

I ordered a few bikini separates for my vacation in May. BUT, I'll be wearing a rash guard shirt over the top. I just knew that I could get the best "lift" out of a bra size bikini top.

They also have bra sized tankini tops! They have loose fronts and cover all that a one piece does but more loosely!

I actually ordered one of those too, but the rash guard also covers the bat wings. ;)
