I know this isn't an AIBU but I'm not sure where else to post so sorry! Also AIBU is a very popular area of mumsnet so thought I would get most replies heresmile

Kids and I are going on a small weekend away with MIL in a week and a half and I need something to wear when we go to the pool etc. I've never had to buy swimwear in the UK before so I'm not sure where to look.

I'm looking for something with a skirted bottom as that's probably my least favourite area of my body and want it covered blush
No preference of one piece or two.

TIA and sorry for anyone this post may annoy as it isn't really an AIBU post.

M&S do some skirted ones
tesco a bit cheaper

What is it about your bum that you don't like? If its just that it's big then a skirted bottom isn't really going to help - most skirts aren't really along enough to give full coverage.

Last year I ordered a variety of swimwear from M&S, Tesco and Bravissimo. I tried all of them on in the comfort of my bedroom and kept a few pieces from each brand.

Tesco do some great, very well priced swimwear so don't discount them.

They are fabulous - loads of styles to choose from and if you order something that is too big/small they will send you a different size with no extra delivery costs.
I always buy my swimwear here as I have a large bust and there's so much choice.

@UppityHumpty I'm not entirely sure. I've always been a bit self conscious but would suck it up and just wear whatever the trend was.
This is probably going to be TMI: that's gotten worse since having kids, I just feel saggy all over and have marks everywhere. I see all of these women now wearing these swimsuits not that show basically their entire bum and quite a bit around the front too and I just panic thinking about it. confused

I've just got a new swimsuit from figleaves. Really pleased with it!

UppityHumpty Tue 18-Apr-17 14:56:38

Ah ok. Then I'd suggest a two piece. Shapewear boy-short type bottoms (high waisted) and a really well supporting top. M&S might be your best bet here.

Following with interest.... are boardshorts just mens swim shorts?

PeaFaceMcgee Tue 18-Apr-17 15:02:41

Get a tankini with little shorts. Speedo do them.

I have just ordered this one

Greycat11 Tue 18-Apr-17 15:13:27

I got a swim dress last year in bon marche of all places and I feel great in it

Rainydayspending Tue 18-Apr-17 15:26:46

Decathlon do the shorts leg one piece:

kel1493 Tue 18-Apr-17 15:27:43

I get a swimsuit with matching swim dress.

MrsPnut Tue 18-Apr-17 15:32:21

I'd recommend a kneesuit or shorts suit instead of a skirted swimsuit, it'd be less noticeable and still practical to swim in.

Buxtonstill Tue 18-Apr-17 15:35:32

Try they have some lovely costumes and cover ups!
