I put on a fair amount of weight during weight during pregnancy. I'm still breastfeeding and haven't lost any weight - if anything I may have put some on and permanently hungry. Feeling fat, saggy and very mummy-ish! Going on holiday in a few weeks and need a decent swim suit that can (somehow) help me - although I maybe a lost cause! I need something to minimise my tummy. I've got quite broad shoulders and big thighs too so swim stuff has often made me feel shit! I'm probably a size 14 at the moment. Any ideas!!

Elomi do high waisted bikini briefs, plus swim bras (sized like bras). You can also buy loose fitting tankini tops to go over them - eg - ignore the prices as you can definitely buy cheaper

Boden. I got a swimsuit from them last year, and it has a control panel that feels nice and snug but not tight across stomach, and nice cross over detail across bust. Not too high cut and wages well. Nice thick, stretchy material.
