Are there one-piece swimsuits with longer 'short' type legs?

The title probably doesn't make sense, but hopefully I can explain... in my pre-DC days I wore two-piece swimsuits with a bikini top, and then the bottom half being a little pair of shorts. My post-DC tummy will not stand up to this level of scrutiny. I've always found that tankinis ride up as well, so I was looking for a one piece swimsuit with maximum bum and top-of-leg coverage. Is there such a thing? Thanks so much to anyone who can help me.

i know you said no tankinis, but i have one from landsend which i can assure you does not ride up. The one i have is a bit longer in the top, which i guess helps. I also like the shorts/skirt type things they do and generally find their stuff quite expensive high quality and flattering. their swimming stuff that is, cannot comment on the rest Confused
sorry, can't link as on phone....

It is really comfortable. Good company to deal with too - very prompt delivery and reliable.

I also love Landsend swimwear.

Thanks everyone! I do quite like the kneesuit, it is unconventional! I will also check out the various Lands End combinations too. helloitsme that is useful to know that some are longer in the top. I have quite a long body which is probably why I have previously had problems with tankinis.

I bought a speedo one which has long legs for about £8 in Dec 11 from a sports direct? jjb sports some high street sports chain with white and red carrier bags and a really cluttered shop with high displays that my kids like to hide behind. It is like this store.speedo.co.uk/c/women/legsuits and looks OK on but makes my tummy look a bit tellytubbyesque
