Swimsuit to conceal my post-c-section and overweight flabby apron belly

Don't know if this is the best place to post this but I couldn't find an Industrial Corsetry forum. Has anyone got any suggestions as to where I could find such a thing? I'm short and fat and I have an inordinately large and droopy belly. The swimming might go some way to repairing the damage but I'm going to need something with a LOT of support to stop me looking like I'm wearing some sort of inflatable buoyancy aid under my cossie ... blush

I bought two miracle suits for my holiday and they were fab for doing this.

Marks and Sparks do one too.
I also have a c-section 'overhang'. I felt fab on holiday wearing a M&S swimsuit.

Definitely second the miracle suit. Just got one for my holiday and it really pulled me in (and I am 1 year post c-section, still with droopy tummy)! They are much cheaper in the States so it may be worth shopping around.

Recommend the miracle suit too. And I nearly didn't want to take mine off as it gave me a fab cleavage! I have NEVER had a cleavage!

Thanks all for the help. And Budababe, I've always had a cleavage, it frames my belly button nicely these days. Which wouldn't be so bad if my belly button wasn't located at my knees. sad

Does the apron belly / overhang EVER go? <plaintive emoticon>
