Any decent swimsuits out there?

I've had my current one for at least 20 years blush, and it is now on its last legs. Was from M&S and back then used to get decent quality, hence how long I've had it.

Anyway, I'm after a replacement. I need something that will give my post children boobs shape and I'm pale so can't wear certain colours, black seems to be fine but would prefer a bit of colour.

Help me find one please

I have found that Debenhams have a really good range of swimwear. They do cup sizes and loads of swimwear with good support.

I'm sure I've checked there already but to be honest have looked at so many I can't remember. Will check again, thanks.

I'm a fan of the Seafolly range, which seem easily available. Expensive, yes, but worth the money because they're well made, last well, stay in place and are dead flattering.

If in doubt, stick with black, people all over the world wear it and it never looks out of place. HTH.

I got my last one from Sainsbury's! It has proper cups, some very forgiving ruching and gives me a good shape. I can't vouch for it being top quality but I don't swim that often so it's not really an issue for me.

I noticed that Tesco are doing a new Active range that included swimming costumes - you could try there?

I still love M&S - bought a couple of really lovely tankinis last year.

Freda will try Seafolly, have never heard of them. I'm willing to pay more as need all the confidence I can get when in a swimsuit and yes, won't discount black.

Floisme haven't looked in Sainsbury, will go later on when I do my food shop.

Cheddar again will look in Tescos, so look as they are not sports swim costumes as would prefer a more 'pretty' one

Just looked at Seafolly Freda, they are lovely but at approx £90 for a swimsuit, way out of my price range unfortunately.

Also I've always hankered after one that Toast do every year. I don't think it's out yet but it's slightly retro, often polka dots, lovely shape and always gets great reviews. It will be ££ though and like I say, I just don't swim often enough to justify it.

Bravissimo are good for boobs, but I haven't had one for years so cannot answer for the quality these days.

Lands End have unfortunately shot up in price (their full price slender ones are very good at sucking in wobbly bits) but the tugless ones on the sale page I've linked are fine if it's not too much to hold in/up.
