Swimwear for big boobs and big bum

(5 Posts)

I desperately need a new swimsuit. I have 36GG boobs, so would like underwire support, but swimsuits designed for my boobs are too small on my bum (size 22). I'm thinking I might need a tankini top, but I don't want to risk it riding up. I don't care too much about what style or colour it is, but I'm having trouble finding anything.

I take the kids swimming most weeks, and I'm mainly supervising my 2yo. So I don't need my cossie to do anything apart from cover as much as possible, and ideally keep my boobs away from my belly button. But I also don't want to spend £££s on a costume if it will disintegrate in the chlorine after a few weeks.

Does anyone have any suggestions, please?

get thee to bravissimo. They have a good range of swimmers for the bigger of bust and curvier of bum.

Yeah, I've tried stuff from Bravissimo before (get my bras from there normally) - but the swimsuits for my bra size were just too small on my bum.

I posted this a couple of weeks ago for interested parties...

its joined but once on looks like a tankini, there are pads in the bust bit. I'm 36D size 16 and it's fine, even a bit flattering.

also got the pink one which also looks like a tankini on but is one piece so wont ride up

vinegarpuss - thanks for the link - it's a pretty swimsuit, but I think I really need underwires rather than just pads.
