Swimsuit - Slender Women Help Me Find One!
Posted 26 May 2012 - 08:29 AM
Due to my lovely multiple food intolerances and my high metabolism, I'm very slender. I haven't been able to find a swimsuit in my size, but I'm honestly not sure where to look. Tried Macy's, Academy Sports, Land's End catalog, and Title Nine.
I wear a size 2 or 0 in regular clothes depending on cut. Problem is I'm 43 and have 4 kids, and the suits that cover lower belly and give some support up top seem to not go below a size 6, maybe 4. (OK, I'm small up top, but again I'm 43…) The suits in the junior's section have a junior's body in mind. (I can fit into my 13yo daughter's clothes from Justice for Girls. Not that I wear them..) I prefer a tankini if I can find one since I'm petite through the torso. Sometimes regular one pieces are too long.
Any ideas on where to look? I can wear my size 6 from last year, but I'm afraid I'll have to keep tugging the bottoms to keep them up! LOL!

My first thought was a two-piece where you can order one size bottom and the other for a top...and then maybe buy a cover-up if you're uncomfortable. Have you called Lands' End and asked to speak with a personal shopper (or whatever they're called)? I've found them to be pretty helpful when I had questions beyond the scope of their customer service reps.

here is an example:
Would this work??
I wear a tankini size 8 now, but I once was a size 20-22 (before the celiac triggered )and back then, yeah, I would have laughed (and scoffed and maybe said some choice swear words and THEN maybe tarred and feathered you )for your question. Now, I get it.
