Can you buy long-body swimwear on the high street?

If so, where?! I can't find any, would quite like a bandeau style one with a strap you canuse or not, to reduce tan lines, but they all drag my boobs down to waist level as they are too short in the body!

I bought long bodied swimsuits in <whispers> BHS a few years ago and my dMum bought some in Debenhams. They make a huge difference to the fit of a suit and I found I could buy my normal size again rather than having to go up a few sizes.

oooh thank you, we actually have a BHS grin If I go up even one size, they are HUGE around the body and just fall down GAH!
Super-pear-shaped here!

Thank you!
