Help me find a swim suit!

Ok, following on from my thread about horrendous body hair, (I have lots, it's dark) I am looking for help finding the perfect swimsuit. All my life I've bought cheap bikinis and hated them.

I hate having to maintain my bikini line, as I can't wax so have to shave. It's tidy down there but I'm very skinny so I feel very self conscious anyway and aware that stray hairs will show. I have a 'thigh gap' which I don't like, and there is literally no place to hide.

Ideally I'd like a really nice grown up, stylish bikini with shorts, but so far I cannot find one. Such a thing seems not to exist - I guess because shorts just are not remotely fashionable?!

In the past I'd have worn a nice bikini top and a pair of short surf board shorts. But now I'm older, and not sure this look will work.

I have no boobs so also need to take this into consideration.

Andy advice or suggestions more than welcome!!

Try Figleaves, their swim wear is great, really flattering. Try halter neck style with padding on boobs and boy leg style bottom half. They have a good selection.

Have a look at Swimwear365. They have some gorgeous stuff.

I am very tempted by this one...

But it's so expensive!

Good ideas so far!

Very do a similar one which is cheaper. Will find a link. It is really flattering and makes you look nicely curvy even if you're not.

Ooooh yes thats what I wan't. I am not in the least bit curvy!

Thanks Laoonablue!

I like that one but they don't have the black so I've gone for an aztec print style one. Decided to give it a go and see how the shape fits.
