So the holidays are approaching, I am at an all time high in the buxomness stakes, I need the help of lovely mumsnetters to find me a one piece or tankini, maybe a bikini if the bottoms are very high waisted. My stats are 5'9", Apple shape I think. The absolute must have is a fab push up bra built in, it's the only way I can get a cleavage! It would be lovely to look like a gorgeous buxom wench.

I got a Freya tankini on eBay (a new one, but cheaper than elsewhere). It comes in bra sizes and has an in built mesh bra thingy and underwiring. I got bottoms that are little shorts, but they had lots of other options, colours, patterns etc. it's very supportive. I tried on a size 16 tankini from elsewhere and the norks were spilling out all over the place, and it was padded, which is the last thing I need!

Thanks Hobbes, I think I need the underwire, the norkes, whilst a D cup need a decent bit of a push up, they tend to look quite small otherwise.

I know it's not very high-end, but the Asda body sculpting swimsuits are worth trying. I have one and am getting more in different prints. At £12 they are a steal. They are very flattering around the tummy and give good bust support/boost. I was at a spa day last week and did spot a few of the same costume on women of varying heights and sizes and they all looked good.

Is have never thought of Asda and at that price it's worth getting one, thanks!

I got a Fantasie tankini top off ebay then control short type bottoms from Peacock - they've been great ... if you get a bra makers top they have more structure so you get a better shape -I found other ones didn't make the most of the top

Exactly avery, puppies shouldn't disappear under your arm pits should they.

Has anybody tried the Marisota Magisculpt ones? Or are they a bit too mumsy?

Try Landsend I have a great plain black and they come in a variety of styles. Quality of mine is very good.

Simply Be? The support swimsuits are a bit meh but reasonably priced.

I got panache bikinis from simply be and amazon. They are cup sized as I am a 36GG

Right don't shoot me for saying this as usually I'm up for a bit of m and s bashing with everyone else but.... I bought a swimming costume from there last night which is bloody great. It's holds your tummy in and has a ruched panel down the front. I'm a 34ff at the mo and a size 14 and it gives me great boobs and a very flattering shape. I bought it in navy but I'm so tempted to go back and get the black too. It's £39.50.

I'm the same size and have a long body - after a lengthy search I found a nice and flattering costume at BHS

I'm a big fan of elomi swimwear, swim bras, high pants and a tankini top. You can buy cheaper new versions on eBay.

I find it so hard to find cossies for tall girls. I got a hold you in halter neck from figleaves in longer length which is good but not a pusher upper.
