    I buy regular swim suits and thin put underwire in them!!! I am a 36DDD so the girls need a definite lift. I really like that suit, maybe you could just put some underwire in there? It sucks shopping for bathing suits….

    I think it seems to fit your figure well – including the ‘girls,’ but maybe you are reacting to something I am not seeing. Does it feel comfortable?

    @melisslp: I wear out bras like crazy so I take the underwire out of the ones that have paid their dues and use them on new things. But yes I am sure you could order it online and then cut it if you needed to. Can’t be that expensive… it’s just plastic and wire. Smile

    I bought mine at unique vintage.  They cover the area that I wanted covered up without looking like I am trying to cover things up.   I am not plus sized, but I am old and there are def areas that I do not out there for the world to see.  Dh loves my new suit.  Maybe someday we will make it to the lake so I can wear it.

    @melisslp:  That was the area that I was concerned with and mine is great for that.  I got one with the longer skirt.  The one thing that I liked about it was that it isn’t too tight on the thigh, there is no “girdle thigh bulge”.  A few of their suits you can custom to your measurements and some you can go to the original makers website and have them customized.

    I think it’s very flattering on you!!!

    I have similarly shaped breasts and what I find helps with a bathing suit is the kind that tie behind your neck….. you can tie them tighter (I tie mine beyond what the suit is meant to be but ….. it holds the twins up!!!) and there is a lot more support!  They CAN get uncomfy after a while from holding up your breasts, but I love how they look.

    I’m a curvier girl, I’m a size 16. This is my swimsuit:

    The ruching hides my pooch and the cut of the bottom makes my hips look smaller 🙂 And it supports my girls! This cut is flattering on any body shape.
