Hi all. I had DD 15 months ago and I've still not managed to get rid of the weight. Most of it is on my belly.

I've lost all confidence to wear a bikini so could anyone recommend some swim wear to disguise a flabby belly. The rest of me isn't so bad. Thanks. smile

I think the Miracle Suit is supposed to be good... Don't be harsh on yourself though. Loads of people still have some baby weight for quite a while. Have you asked the GP to check for separated abdominals though? Might be that?

(I have both by the way - separated abs and still a bit of excess flab! 'Baby' no. 3 is nearly 2....)

How about getting any tankini with a little print and preferably ruching across the tummy, such as this £10 one from asda

But wearing it with a higher waist tummy control bottom?

A bit more youthful than a control suit like miraclesuit IMO and about £80 cheaper smile

They have a great range of loose tankini at swimwear 365.

Maybe this style of slightly flared tankini with a plain control brief?

Thanks all. Liking the tankini idea!

Never heard of separated abdominals shock

Have a look at some of the Tummy Control swimsuits at Figleaves. I find them really flattering and stylish.

I've never really seen a flattering tankini on an actual person, rather than the models.
