Swimming costume for super-skinny (that would rather not be)

Hello ladies,
I am one of those rare creatures that is too skinny and hates being so. Is there anyone (anyone??) out there who feels the same but has found a swimming costume that makes them less paranoid about flat chest / bony shoulders etc.
I would like something modest but not sporty.
Just to add to my plight, I also have scoliosis so I would prefer a one-piece that doesn't show too much of my back.
Thank you please!

Sorry about the awful spelling, rushing around trying to type.

BHS (I know I know but wait) had these mock wrap swimsuits like this that covered quite a lot and gave a bit of shape. Not this stripy one but they had plain bronze ones and a turquoisey one that looked really good. Sometimes swimsuits are really low cut and reveal far too much rib and sticky out collarbone on me.

If you are minted there's a few flattering ones I tried on in the HOF sale - this is nice on.

Oh thanks ladies - Dilligaf81 that looks lovely, and Combine I will shop anywhere that flatters my non-figure smile
