This my suit for the summer, I really like it the tank & shorts swimwear, plus it's comfy. I'm pretty modest and I'm older 54.

I usually wear a tank. I'm a swimmer and swim in open water and also laps at the community pool so for me it is all about being able to move freely and being comfortable.

I do have a 2 piece with a really high waist and it's surprisingly flattering.

Not so great for swimming, but fun to wear.
I avoid anything loose just because it tends to get in my way when I'm swimming.

You have some serious cleavage and if there was a malfunction, all would be hanging out.

My bikini has a lot more coverage then if I were to just go put in my bra and underwear. Its also not see through when it gets wet like underwear is.

I like. I'm more modest than I used to be, and my saddlebags have haunted me since my 20s, no matter how much I exercise. Many thanks to jade408 for her suggestions. I think Freya is a good direction to go as well.

I was a teen for all the above, but it scarred me enough to lean towards 1 pieces forevermore.

To that end, Stingray has some lovely options... 1 pieces with zippers, some with boyshorts or longer styles like bike shorts or full leg cover... & traditional strap options, short sleeve rash guards or even long sleeve. The bonus is all are supposed to protect from the sun. Many resemble the neoprene wetsuits, but are not made of the same material, which require a gang of 3 to help "slip" into.

For some reason, I'm having trouble reaching Amazon this evening, as well as a few other sites... so can't pull out the exact pieces I'm mentioning. So, I'll just list the link for the site below for perusal. They are an AU co, but sell in the US, as well, mostly online. They even have men & kids wear & also larger women's sizes... unsure of size range. BTW, Amazon sells many similar, cheaper styles from different companies. They're comfy suits & if you burn in 10-min, like me, I like the extra arm/leg coverage.

Since all suits cling, if you find they cling in the wrong spots or don't cover what you wish to cover, you can also find some very pretty coverups to put on over a suit. There are lots of nice options today.

Good luck! Hope you find something.

More and more you can't tell swimsuits from ordinary clothing. You can go to town in this.

Above is just 1 of many... most don't have collars. This one is under $60, Small-2XL, black or navy, 100% positive reviews.

Sure. You have a good point... I have seen kids going into the water in shorts & tees... whatever works.

I guess we have to divide soaking-in-the-sun wear from swimwear from activeware, like beach volleyball, surfing, etc. Also, burners from non-burners.

I'm a burner, so cover up more than most & can't stay long at the beach as I just can't tolerate the sun. But, if I were a sun soaker, I'd probably be more interested in cute bikinis rather than functionality for jumping about in the water.

I'm quite active & given that everyone has a Smartphone these days, don't want to hit a wave & have the bits & pieces flashed across SillyNakedSurfers dot com.
