I'm going on a 2 week trip mid-April which is going to involve lots of kayaking and rafting. I'm trying to find something sporty-looking that holds all my saggy bits in place that isn't too skimpy! Am 5'7, size 14-16, with a bit of a tummy.

Can anyone recommend any good sites where I might find something that fits the bill?

Why would you wear a bikini? A swimsuit or tanking sounds a better option imo

Tankini lol

I find that White Stuff bikinis hold me in (however I am fairly flat chested - I'm more concerned about my stomach). The bikinis may not look any less skimpy than others on the page, but they are well made and this helps I think.

something like this maybe?

Thanks for the links - I wanted a bikini because I was planning on wearing board shorts as well, and was hoping to get a tanned tummy for once! Didn't think about white stuff or figleaves, so the links were welcome, thanks again.

There's plenty of sporty bikinis in the swimming sections of big sport stores, they aren't usually skimpy.
