I had a good look round the shops at the weekend and tried several on but none of them were up to the job! I am 5'9", 12/14 ish with a big fat tummy and monster boobs - 34GG. I want something very plain and elegant which will hold me in and control my assets! Tried on a few in M&S - total disaster, clearly aren't designed for the boob challenge. Please help me. thanks

I like this one - very flattering (and there's a sale on at Debenhams at the moment)

Good luck!

Try Lands End - their sucky-in ones do make a difference, and they have all sizes in long as well as regular.

Speedo sculpture are very good.

I'm a similar size to you. If its for non-serious swimming and lounging about I get loads of compliments when wearing this I went up a back size and down a cup size to get a good fit though.

It would be appropriate if you want to do 100 lengths at super fast speed though. Def look for underwired suits though.

It's wouldn't be appropriate I meant!

Now this is an amazing swimsuit. I'm an inch shorter than you but otherwise exactly the same and this amazingly makes me feel like a normal person,default,pd.html

The Debenham one and the Biba HoF one are gorgeous!
