Swimsuit that hides bikini line?

(23 Posts)

Can anyone point me in the right direction for the seemingly impossible - a swimsuit that looks good, hides bikini line and supports biggish boobs?

I've been looking every summer for a few years with no luck, but I fear this may be the year since my trusty old suit is beginning to look a bit saggy...

Thanks Helen, that's very nice but doesn't hide bikini line I don't think. I would like one that comes a little down the legs so I don't have to hop in the shower and shave anytime I want to go swimming. I know I shouldn't, but I do feel hideously uncomfortable if my lady beard shows, but equally hate removing it...

Not quite what you asked for but I usually get plain bottoms with a little skirt and then a halter neck or whatever tankini top to match. You can generally get better boob support that way too.

Ooh I like the red one of those. I would need to try on though. Anyone know which high street shops sell swim dresses like these?

This will cover your lady garden, not sure on the boob support though.

This is nice. It's expensive though.

Littlewoods ones have bra sizes and cheap online outlet - e.g.

Or are you thinking of something sportier

RaisinsAndApple Sat 25-Mar-17 23:05:55

Ooh, thanks all!
I LOVE the lands end one - not sure my budget will stretch though sadly.
The seafolly one is beautiful too and a bit more affordable.
I worry that the actual legsuit ones won't support my post babies bust, but swim dresses is an interesting idea I haven't yet investigated. smile

I had one from m&s with a little skirt. Brilliant. Why do you want to hide bikini line? If it's because you get shaving rash try a Philips lumina. An absolute life saver for me considering my bikini line pretty much reached my knees!

RaisinsAndApple Sat 25-Mar-17 23:08:05

Oh yes! That Zogs one is quite pretty and has bust support - looks interesting. smilesmile

Good for hiding bikini line but not sure about how it be for support.
There's also a few on Amazon

RaisinsAndApple Sat 25-Mar-17 23:12:22

porpoise I'm quite lazy about shaving and generally only do it if I'm going swimming, which can then be annoying if we decide to go on a whim and I need to get in the shower first to prepare confused
I do get shaving rash, but also itchy with regrowth and prone to ingrown hairs. I used to wax but now I'm older I cba any more. I'd prefer to just trim for neatness and not bother with any proper hair removal above the knees (luckily my thighs only have short light coloured hair that I can happily leave alone).

I have the Zoggs Nelson. Good coverage for your bikini line but doesn't come so far down it looks like a "legsuit". There's a built in support band / elastic bit in the bust, although I can't comment on how effective it is as that's not something I'm in so much need of. As a swimsuit I lime it, the v shape pattern is quite flattering too, I think.

asahi love the ruched one (flattering for slightly wobbly tummy), thanks!

RaisinsAndApple Sat 25-Mar-17 23:15:52

Thanks fruit - does it ride up on your legs at all?

That's lovely grace, thank you!

FruitBadger Sat 25-Mar-17 23:27:29

Not particularly. I bought it when I started to take DS to baby swimming lessons a while ago, I suffer from shaving rash / ingrowing hairs too and it's been perfect for that purpose.

If you really like the Landsend ombre one, they have the same swimsuit (but just in blue, no ombre) in their sale for half the price of the one I posted upthread.
