I'm here to pick the collective brain. I hope that someone here can help.
My current swimsuit is a shockabsorber. It's a few years old and starting to look distinctly the worse for wear. So I logged on to figleaves today to replace it only to find that they don't seem to make them any more.
So I need recommendations for a good quality swimsuit with an inbuilt sports bra (for Aqua etc.). I'm in a 36F. I'd prefer one without underwire but I am open to that if needed. It needs to be able to cope with 3 - 5 swims a week without falling apart in 6 months.
Lands End do one with a built in shelf bra. I bought one after having someone rave about it on here and it is very good. I think it's called tugless but if you search on MN for Lands End and swimming you'll probably find the thread.
The other thing (not for swimming but for aqua/ jumping) is you could buy some black tri-shorts or swim shorts and pair with a black sports bra. It looks just like a bikini top. If you felt too self conscious there are plenty of rash vests or swim tankinis to go over the top.
