Swimsuit vs bikini for a chunky size 16

I have a horrible tummy, no stretch marks but I have a lovely hang-over from my section.
We are going on holiday in a few weeks. I'm happy to wear a kaftan to go to the bar lunch.

Should I buy a couple of bikinis or a couple of one pieces?

I'm 40 and deep down think I should cover up sad

I agree with Paris everyone abroad wears a bikini regardless of shape and size and no-one bats an eye.

I felt similarly iffy, but soon gave up on the swimsuit I'd brought with me and bought one in France and just went with the flow. I enjoyed my holiday and didn't feel awkward at all.

I like tankinis, easier to wee in than a one piece
