I am having a horrible time finding a good swimsuit. I prefer a one piece but I'll also wear a tankini as long as it's kind of "flowy" around the tummy. I have a flabby tummy so something that cuts in the middle is not appealing at all!! LOL I feel like I need something w/ good bust support. I have a cheap halter suit from Marshalls from last summer but I feel like my boobs are hanging to my knees. I don't want to get a maternity suit because I think I would be swimming (har har har) in it at this point.

Anyone have any luck finding decent fitting swimwear???

Have you tried Target? I have huge boobs & they were the only Tankini swimsuit that I could find that fits me good. I tried it on today & you can defiently tell I have a baby bump but I still have a little room. Hopefully it will make it through the Summer but I doubt it.

As a momma with LOTS of strech marks and more pounds around the middle, I totally understand swimsuit dilemas!!!! I have always found my favorite swim suits at Dillards. In my opinion, swim suits are like bras - Im willing to spend a lot on them even if I can only own 1 or 2 REALLY great ones. Higher quality swim suits are going to give you much more support than the ones at discount stores. Tankinis that are gathered on the sides can mask a little extra belly. Also, Victorias secret makes a tankini that has a wonderbra top! I personally dont have one but they have great reviews.
