I wear an underwired tankini from bravissimo. It is fab. Bit pricier than you were after, but definitely worth it. Bravissimo do lots of underwired costumes. They might just go down as small as a D...

..small!..cheeky! mucha re they then? and do the tops cover the over hang of gut above bottoms?

They certainly do.

Can't remember how much I paid - it was a while ago. Look on their website - they have loads.

thanks, but LOL just clicked and thought the third pic said clothing to 'fit fatter girls' not fit and flatter girls!

I am 5 11 and my midriff is safely covered by mine. I think some styles are shorter. I tried mine on in the shop.

Mine is plain black.

well im only 5 ft 6 so they should be good then but i cant make myself spend that amount on a top to swim in!

Marks and Spencer had a good selection with underwired cups/specific cup sizes/bodyshaper etc and some were under £30. Just looked on the website and some are now out of stock.
