I don’t usually like to wear bikinis, but since it was for Darling Husband and our Honeymoon, I relented. I ended up getting an awesome pink bikini by Arizona from JC Penney’s- push up top, scoop bottom. I’m 5’3 and well….a few pounds heavier than you 😉 I wouldn’t say I’m fat, but you’re probably very petite-framed and I’m a more medium frame who could stand to lose 10lbs 😛

I actually felt sexy and good-looking in this suit – and that’s something I haven’t felt since I was probably 14!  It seriously looked way better than tankini tops and boy short bottoms I’d been wearing for the last 5 years. Who knew that less swimsuit would be more attractive?

It also has adjustable strings on the side.

I have the same problem in the butt area.  I like to order a top I like with bunch of different bottoms from Victoria’s Secret, try them on in the privacy of my home, and send back anything that doesn’t work.  They do make you pay shipping, but it’s so worth it to avoid actual bathing suit shopping!  They run a tiny bit smaller than a lot of companies, so they’re good for people who are usually “in between” sizes.  Plus, the suits are really inexpensive if you hit a sale.

If you’re willing to spend a little, I’ve noticed that Ralph Lauren suits are usually really good in the butt-containment department.

I hope you find an awesome suit!

Lands End and Victoria’s Secret have the best bathing suits, imo. I love the customization you can get with the two piece Lands End ones. I have a Calvin Klein one that I like too.

I am not as petite as you, but I just got a really cute bikini from Old Navy on “end of the season” sale (pfft) for $12.00 total. Cute and cheap? Sold.

I LOVE Victoria’s Secret bathingsuits. Seriously they fit amazing! Also, I’ve ordered bathingsuits from Zappos.com and I have been happy with those as well. Zappos has free shipping both ways and you can return it up to a year. So thats unbeatable.

I agree on the Victoria Secret suggestions!  They usually have cute suits in the sale section as well!

I have a wide butt but I’m small and have small boobs and I’ve always liked Old Navy bathing suits!

I have a Victoria’s Secret bathing suit I just bought too! They’re expensive, IMO, but I love that I can buy different size tops & bottoms and that they’re generally flattering.

@archielamb:  Agree!  I’ve always done that with Victoria’s Secret and they truly have the best bathing suits in my opinon unless you want to pay some ridiculous amout.
