Anyone care to find me an impossible tankini?

I'm a pear-shaped 29 year old, around dress size 12. I'm looking for a tankini that isn't a halter neck (wonky boobs make them look odd), doesn't look like it's made for someone 20 years older and costs less than £50. I've come up empty-handed with asos, Boden, M&S, Debenhams, TK Maxx, John Lewis and House of Fraser but my fashion sense is awful so if anyone's seen something nice I'd be happy to have another look.

Wrong time of year now but the white company usually have nice tankinis in their spring and summer collections

(There's always a 20% off code to be found)

Thanks. I've just checked on the off-chance but no tankinis. It's for the week after Christmas!

I've got a nice panache tankini which I got from Bravissimo.

Do you have a particular bra brand that works for you?

My curves and me owned by the company that make Panache/Cleo swimwear, they sell mainly end of range stuff through their site and the discounts can be huge.

Nothing on figleaves?

Think mine is panache I will check

I buy mine on sale from everything but water. I'm in the US but the prices are $100 or so at full price. I've found tankinis for $20. This time of year you would be surprised by what is available as it's hard to predict how many people will go to the sun in the US with the Zika virus.

Panache or curvy Kate.

Maine, in debenhams, do non halter

There's a gorgeous coral print one in Bravissimo but £64 for just the top?! shock

Lands End sale NOW!! Thanks for drawing my attention to it, Thomas. I have ample boobage and can't carry the weight in a halter neck. There are pages at half price here.

Good tip, thanks eliza. I've ordered some bottoms and a spare top/bottom set.
