Ladies! - Swimsuits with a belly flap



Recommended Posts

Hello! I have just started looking for swimsuits, but have run into a road block - my loose belly skin! It hangs out of the leg holes in the front. It is really not that much, but it looks like my you-know-what is peeking through and over flowing 😅. Has anyone with belly skin found a good suit? Please post a link and/or photo! Thank you so much!!!

What about a suit with a skirt? That's all I ever wore most of my life since I was heavy and they are usually very flattering. Or a dress type? Or even a suit that has lose shorts for the bottom. Below are a few examples.

I have this exact same problem. I bought a bathing suit with a skirted bottom, and also a swim dress.

Thanks for these! I don’t want to hide my body though - I am post op and have a teeny tiny waist and my tummy looks good except for the extra skin at the very bottom. I will look into the skirted bottoms though - I think they could be a good solution.

Are you looking online? Depending on your size, even Victoria's Secret has options with built in support for your tummy. Get ready for your Hot Girl Summer! And check back. I'm not ready for a swimsuit but I want to live vicariously. lol

Thanks for asking this question. I am not quite there yet but anxious to be searching for swimsuits for next summer. I hope you find something that hides your excess skin yet still allows you to show off your assets. Keep us posted on what you find.

I ordered these off of Amazon. We will see if any of them work! I will report back next week :)

I love swim shorts with a tankini top. The shorts cover my belly and upper legs which are full of loose skin. I always have belly hanging out in regular swim bottoms.

I just got the CUTEST suit on Amazon.. Now, I tend to be flashy and like bright colors, so it may not be for everyone, but I LOVE it, and it covers my belly flap and upper legs which have a ton of loose skin. I love it so much I will buy more when I lose more weight. I have 2 suits from that brand and they are both great. It's a 2 piece with shorts underneath.

The brand is Esprlia. IMG_20210601_151109_1~2.jpg

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

    • HeBrokeTheChains

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
