that is actually for swimming, I need it today as mine has ripped. live in a place with not many shops available and can't drive. every costume has got cut away sides, mad patterns, low cut, bandeu type things built for showing off. I just want a sporty swimming thing!

Try Lands End. I've had a couple from there (the shaping panels actually do their stuff) and they are definitely suitable for real swimming. I've seen another poster on here recommend their 'tugless' ones as particularly good for active swimming too.

I bought one of these for post-birth swimming. Cheap and does the job.

I came on to recommend lands end (I buy their 'tall' ones as I'm 5'9 and they're the only ones that don't ride up my arse) but see someone beat me to it smile

You might find something suitable on Sports Direct online.

I was going to say Sports Direct, but if you need it today and don't drive that's probably no use. Does your Sports Centre sell anything? Ours has a small shop with Speedo swimsuits etc, not cheap, but at least handy.

Some of the local pools near me sell zoggs swimwear which is sporty, other than that simply swim online, I use a speedo sculpture costume, failing that marks had some sporty looking ones in store.

Have you tried Sainsburys? They usually have a selection of speedo costumes.

You can order speedo costumes online.
