Hi gals!
Right I need to go shopping for a sexy (halter neck) swimsuit and was wondering if you have any suggestions please? 'Short' style bum options? Or just very low leg?
I need it to cover my bikini line please. I don't want to have to wax or shave down there all the time. It's for taking kids to the pool and I want to be able to just grab and go!
Thanks laydeez.

Oh it doesn't have to be halter neck by the way. Ideally it will have some support for the chest to avoid swimsuit flat chest ;-)

get some shorts type thing with a tankini halter neck top - perhaps?
go over to style and beauty and someone more knowledgeable than me will advise.

What about a swimdress? I got one from primark was around £12, kinda racer back. It's got removable pads in the bust and is supposed to flatten your tummy too

I have a boy leg one from boden

Like this kind of thing?

I have a pair of shorts similar to these www.sportsdirect.com/ocean-pacific-cuba-swimming-shorts-ladies-573022 that I wear over my swimsuit when I haven't been bothered had time for a tidy up smile

Are you being unreasonable about what exactly?

Darn you boosterseat, that's lovely

I've got this which does the job. Not the most glamourous thing, I grant you, but I also do lane swimming myself occasionally so wanted a 'proper' cossie IYSWIM.

Love the blurb which is right out of the fifties; 'wear with strappy sandals and bangles'.

perish the thought you would get in the water and move around!

BoosterSeat I saw that one. Love it. But I'm a 14-16 . D'ya think I could get away with it? smile

Im a size 10 after a long hard slog but i am 5"2 with a seriously squishy mum tum.

I had something similar after I had DS when i was a size 14 and the runching really helps slim down the tummy.

Go for it Eliza they do free returns so its worth a shot.

YABVU to not post in style and beauty. This is happening more and more in AIBU lately. hmm

I have this from Debenhams. It comes with halterneck straps. Have had several women at the pool ask me where I got it in the last couple of weeks alone. Its great for covering up the bikini line!

Mrs Terry wow! Do you know anywhere in Uk for this kinda thing? Especially one in a UK shop I can try it on in?

Feminine Fri 28-Jun-13 16:09:50

Oh what a funny thread.

op being told she is in the wrong spot...and carrying on regardless!

Go laydee! grin

SnoopyLovesYou Fri 28-Jun-13 16:10:56

Eliza I think this swimsuit is made for a sexy curvy woman. Go for it.

Thanks Boosterseat I think Im gonna go right ahead and buy one too!

I'm a 12/14 dress size. prob closer to a 12 but maybe large 12? i'm very long in the body as over 5'11. which size should I go for?

Heartbrokenmum73 Fri 28-Jun-13 16:12:33

Why do you need a sexy swimsuit to take your kids to the pool? confused

SnoopyLovesYou Fri 28-Jun-13 16:18:22

Why would I buy an ugly one Heartbroken mum?

Heartbrokenmum73 Fri 28-Jun-13 16:22:35

Sexy just seems an odd choice for taking the kids swimming. Pretty, I could understand. Just me then...

FGS move it to Style and Beauty MN. Lots of people are getting upset it seems!

I personally do't mond and I love that green swimsuit. It is lovely.
