Swimsuit - Slender Women Help Me Find One!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is the only place I know where to ask this question without getting tarred and feathered by those who struggle with their weight!!!

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

We won't tar and feather you...but I'm sure there's a bit of envy here including me. laugh.gif

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.

Land's End has tankini sets in size 2.

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 :lol: )for your question. Now, I get it. :)

Victoria's secret, you can get tops and bottoms separately too. You have to look a bit to find something that isn't totally plunging, but they do have some. I've got the same problem and I'm 10 years older.
