Stop the presses - I have found the perfect swim suit;
· If you’re Size 12 and Up
· If you’re Big on Top
· If You Have a Wide Waist
· If you’re Bottom Heavy
· If You Have a Long Torso
· If you’re Small on Top
· If You Want to Take Inches Off
The Tankini! This two piece suit allows one flexibility and choice. Want your top to be soft and floral, abstract and fierce or pared down? Looking for support that is light, medium or firm – with or without underwire? Straps – you can choose halter, criss cross, thick, spaghetti or none at all! Bottoms – available in skirt, boy leg, and brief leg and high cut. What a variety of options. For a swimmer I would recommend a close filling top with lots of spandex so it does not float up while you are swimming.
Serious lap swimmers will probably want to have at least one active Swim suit. Speedo has long been the top brand however the largest size I can source is size 22. Addition Elle has a suit perfect for swimming laps! Sporty 1-piece features flattering princess seams and athletic back with plastic closure. Inner bra with power mesh and molded foam cups, and zipper detail at front will keep the girls locked and loaded, $79.99
Plus Size Ombré twisted swimdress, Penningtons $80 Inner bra with power mesh and molded foam cups,Great looking straps can be crossed at back for extra support - good for active or passive activities
Should you be a curvy girl with great firm legs blossoming from you trunk, there are fabulous retro suits. In fact a black retro suit from Lane Bryant has already sold out! I found a cute cherry print ($90) from http://www.modcloth.com.
My figure now resembles Ursula the Octopus in the Little Mermaid with all of my weight just jiggling there in front. Therefore I was thrilled when a number of years ago when I discovered the swim dress.

Then there is my daughter who believes “go cheap or go home” and never would pay $100 for a swim suit. Wal-Mart has one basic black swim dress, $36.00 no description. However both of our Walmart suits have swam and wore well!
To close, here are a few suits I would never wear, what do you think?
