Not sure what to advise about the swimsuit. 50s style halter neck maybe? Leg suits are easily available but they tend to be functional rather than attractive. Plain swimsuit with board shorts over the top is a look I've seen a few women swim in - looks quite sporty and doesn't show too much leg / bum.
Any suits with legs, tankinis, shorts over the costume will look odd and draw attention to those areas. Just wear a good quality, 1 piece swimming costume, those slimming ones with ruching in the waist. And maybe wear a kaftan or a sarong when not in the water
I'm a similar size and I wear bikinis. I get proper bra sized ones,usually halter necks from Figleaves. I like Freya and Fantasie best.I spent years covered up and feeling self conscious but I've now come to terms with the fact that I'll never be skinny but I can wear beautiful,bright well fitted swimwear and enjoy myself on holiday. Do you judge every woman you see in swimwear? Thought not....and no-one's judging you. Have a fabulous holiday. .
