chic one piece swimsuits?

I am having a crisis before my holiday - not worn a bikini since before babies and I am getting nervous about showing my stretched tummy. I have properly fitted bikinis but not worn them yet.
I wondered if there were chic one piece swimsuits about that don't cost the earth. I am ample of bosom so needs to be fairly substantial. No cut outs, plunge to waist or anything like that. And something more cheerful than black hopefully!
Any ideas?

I was at a leisure centre pool last week and ordered a regatta swimsuit after seeing it on a woman there. It was on sale too. I can't link but if you look us the red with blue halter trim . I thought it was lovely. 40 pounds full price down to less than half now

For a fuller bust swimsuit check out the online specialists. I'm sure they all have sales now. You might pick up a Freya one cheaply.

Are non wired ones a bad idea? Ino some ways I feel like having the cups draws more attention and that's not what I am looking to do! Someone mentioned a nice coral scoop neck one but it's sold out. Maybe even some of the higher neck styles would be OK?

Boots had some lovely Red plain ones for £14 in the sale last week, brilliant fit

I've looked in two boots already but no joy. I'll try another today.

Are they online ?

Keepon - personally I love the high neck suits and bikinis. Worth trying I should think. I know what you mean by cups adding bulk or attention. You should probably steer clear of moulded cups, but might like underwired soft cups (only fabric, like a bra). Some moulded cups on me go in a different direction when I turn smile

Thanks Diana, I am trying to find some stylish high neck now but struggling.

keeponkeepinon Thu 28-Jul-16 12:55:45

Sold out online too pissssssssedoff

Only one style on Leia in the sale:

I swear by the Magisculpt swimsuits. They hold all the wobbly bits in and look lovely too. Have a look here
There are loads more on the JD Williams site if you search for Magisculpt and pretty reasonably priced too.

Love the cut of that one Diana, just not sure if it's a bit shouty for me though! The navy and white one is £65 though

I went to the personal shopper in Debenhams a week ago. She was great. I bought 3 that I really like, cheap as chips. If you've got time before you go away, i'd definitely recommend it.

I bought this last week, it's very flattering.. figleaves

Ive just bought this one from next - I've recently had a baby and am ample busted - this looks great on and keeps my boobs where they should be!

BreakHerOffAKitKat Thu 28-Jul-16 16:25:27

It comes in other colours too

keeponkeepinon Thu 28-Jul-16 21:18:18

Well Diana, taking a punt after all on that bright Freya one - I'm whining about having boring swimwear then not branching out and trying something different!! Thanks for the pointer, hopefully I'll like it when it gets here....!

DianaT1969 Thu 28-Jul-16 21:35:19

Fingers crossed. Let us know how it is. Presumably sale items can be returned?

The Speedo Sculpture range is very good - not underwired but supportive.

keeponkeepinon Thu 28-Jul-16 23:35:48

Err,I hope so! It would be undress distance selling regs anyway.
I saw some quite nice speedo ones schnitzel. I've ordered the Freya ando an asos one. If they aren't right I'll look at them more closely
