I find shopping for swimmers quite depressing at the best of times, let alone trying to find one post baby. As the title states I need help finding a new pair of swimmers.
I've always worn bikini's, but sadly, those days are now over. I'm after either a tankini or onepiece that will disguise my mummy tummy. I have no idea what style to look at, what brand, what pattern would be flattering etc etc. I'm tall and long in the body which also makes onepiece shopping difficult.
I'm quite self conscious at the moment and would love to find some swimmers I feel comfortable in.
I'm also interested to know whether you prefer a onepiece or tankini.

Help choosing a swimsuit

Depending on the kind of swimming you will be doing.....I prefer a tankini and shorts for mucking about with the kids in, but a supportive one piece for laps/workouts in water.
I agree though, swimsuit shopping is depressing.

What about a vintage inspired, high-waisted bikini? I love them!

I bought some shapewear ones from Target last year. A ruched tummy area is a great disguise. I tried on a pair of Nancy Gantz as well and they were amazing but they're super expensive. In saying that, Dimmeys currently have them for $20 for size 12+ which is amazing; they retail for $160.
I hate shopping for bathers but so far Target has been a huge win for me.

Copy n paste from web:
Fit Tip: Do you have a longer body length?
- Choose a 2 piece for a better body fit.
- Choose slightly higher rises to make the body appear shorter.
- Avoid straight vertical stripes as this will add length to your body.
- Avoid low hipster bottoms that will lengthen the look of the body.

I've seen high waisted ones online but not at the shops. Any particular shops that you know have them? I'd be happy to give them a go.
I'll definitely look up Nancy ganz, never heard of them but they sound great. I've never heard of Dimmy's either.
Thanks for the rouge tip, just what I need! Should I go for black? It would be nice to have a bit of colour or pattern though. Do stripes make you look thinner or wider?
They need to be somewhat practical, baby wrangling with the option water exercise. Thanks for replies so far

I invested in a miracle suit one piece a few years ago and yes they were expensive but they've worn really well and still fit and look great.
They have detachable straps but even when I wear them strapless they feel super secure.
I also bought a Target pair last year that are quite flattering for my shape.
