we're off to the glamous surroundings of centre parcs and i need something to wear in the pool.
dd is nearly 5 mo so i still have a bit of wibble in the tummy region but the baby weight has gone.

pre children i'd have done a bikini unless doing serious lane swimming.
now i'm not sure. my bum's fine. my boobs have gone south but with a bit of support they're ok as they're not huge. my tummy is flat ish/ gently rounded but has that wibbly effect.

what do i look for bikini or one piece?
i'm pretty sure a tankini will be no better than a one piece as i've got a long body so would still have some of my tummy on show.


BTW i'm sure i won't be the worst tummy in the pool! smile

I went to Centre parcs in May, and took a bikini and a swimsuit. I too suffer from the dreaded long back but found a debenhams designer onepiece that could cope. I mostly wore the bikini but it's good to have a choice as you spend so much time in the pool.

I'd say what everyone's saying- BIKINI!

wearing a bikini would not require you to have the beach bum body everyone would be joining the rat race for, but you just have to be confident and that would be key.

If you are not that confident or having doubts about it, I suggest that you stay away from it and wear something like a unikini so that it would be able to cover more skin for comfort.

But for an honest description, you are looking good to wear one without problems.
