Bikini with big pants (but not huge) with top that suits small boobs?

I had a look in Tesco yesterday and all the ones with small tops also had miniscule tie-side pants that I do not have the figure for. The ones with slightly bigger pants all went with tops that were sold in B, C, D or DD sizes with underwires and I'm an A cup and HATE underwires.

So where might I find a bikini (not tankini) with not-miniscule-but-not-granny pants that will hold in my post-baby tummy (she's nearly 12, so it's not going to go, is it?!) and a top that suits small boobs? Would love to say cost irrelevant but I'd be lying, ideally about £20 for both top and pants!

This bikini from Boden is gorgeous. I have it in the iris colourway. The bottoms are extremely flattering and cover all whilst not looking remotely grannified (I think they look bigger on the photo than they do irl). The top is also great - I am a C-cup but not much in the way of volume, iyswim and it gives me a really great shape.

It is £47 though, Tulpe, by the time you've added in the separate pants!

Sorry - didn't read OP properly.

Try Oasis they have loads of bikinis in the sale for around £20 with non-string bottoms smile

Thanks for advice, have ordered a couple from BHS online - £35 for the lot. If they're no good, they just go back!
