What swimming costume for school trip?

My Dd is 15 and will be going on a trip to South America in the February half tem with her school. The packing list we have been provided with includes two swimming costumes and after talking with her friends my Dd has come to the conclusion that he would like to take one more modest, full length swimming costume and also a bikini. Her dillema is that while she is sure she wants to take a bikini, she is struggling to find one which isn't too revealing as she doesn't want a lot of her chest or bum on show. Does anybody know where I could find a bikini which isn't too revealing but would be met with approval by a fashion-concious teenager? Help!

Lots of fab, cheap, retro ones on Amazon with high waist bottoms and quite full tops.

Topshop have some high waist bottoms and bandeau style tops.

Would she be happier in board shorts (maybe something like this and bikini top (those shorts have matching one? That's what a lot of the teens round here seem to wear. Or a tankini with boyshort bottom half? (but tankinis possibly a bit passe?)

Google 'high neck bikini' and 'surf bikini' and you'll see some nice ones.

Tankini. The top does not come off in the water like a bikini top can.

Definitely check out sports brands,they are really flattering, modest and way cooler than any high street offerings. Speedo, Maru, Uglies, Amanzi from online swimwear websites are good.
