    Lightbulb Flattering Swimwear for mums ???

    Hi All,

    I am a new mum struggling to find a flattering/affordable swimsuit for my body shape. I find swimsuits are either too skimpy, cut into the sides or have a daggy grandma pattern on them.

    Anyone else having the same problem? Can anyone suggest some good designs?

    Thanks!

    When I was in Kmart the other day I noticed their new swimwear collection was really nice and massive selection. Huge variety and not grandma-ish at all.

    May not be as financially viable now with our low dollar but I get my swimwear from Victoria's Secret in the US.

    I have rather an ample bosom for my size and so it's great to be able to buy a top and bottom in different sizes. Their bottoms have a foldover at the waistband so you can make the bikini bottoms higher or lower. They don't sit low on the hips, which seems to be the problem with all of the bikinis I've seen here. There are so many tops and bottoms to choose from and mix and match.

    They also have really nice patterns on their one pieces and ruching (sp?) to cover the wobbly bits.

    The seafolly swimmers are great. I have a large bust and they hold up well and they are also very flattering. A little pricy but they last really well. I've had mine 3 years now and they still look new.

    I think it depends on how much you are going to wear your swimmers. I have bought cheap ones from millers, ( showing my age I know), but for me, I only swim in my own pool, and mostly the swimmers have almost died from not being worn. so less than $20 for a pair, is fine for me. marie.

    I actually bought a one piece black kmart costume that had a tummy sucking section. It was very slimming and was something like $25. I would only wear it once or twice this summer so didn't feel the need to splash out. Big W also had some nice stuff in their Mambo range

    All swimwear is gross on me. The boardies never fit right, I can't wear anything that shows my thighs as they bulge out of bikini, tankini type....so I wear lycra bike pants and a tankini singlet top or a rashie

    Target has nice swimwear. I prefer the two piece with singlet type top and shorts bottoms.
