The Diva Black High Waist Bikini | Swimsuits For All

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.

That's really adorable and subtly sexy! I love the back. I *might* be able to get away with that two piece.

I love Swimsuits For All - and I just became aware of them this Summer. The great thing about them is that they really are "For All" - it's not just code for plus size. (And I am NOT implying that there isn't a need for fashionable plus sized suits) Swim Suits for all starts at MY SIZE - 4 and goes up to 40. I believe.

Not every size 4 looks great half naked with a C-section marred lower abdomen in her late 50s.

I'm good in clothes. Naked? Let's just say the late 70s and 80s were better for this girl.

I actually found two pieces in Walmart of all places. The bottom is a skirt (no pleats, more like a tennis skirt), the top is a regular bra type top. I have a couple of tops that I interchange. I prefer solid black, so that's what all my various pieces are.

I know it's not PC, but when I go to the beach, I pretty much go to get a tan.

I'm overweight a bit, and this suit doesn't look bad, to me! But, bottom line---who cares what anyone else thinks. I used to worry more about what I look like on the beach but when I look around, I wonder why I worry!!

Hey! Who cares where you find a good suit?

One year we were about to visit Disney World. I was shopping at a Super Center for food, but clothes junkie that I am, I wandered into the clothes section and I saw the cutest swim suite! I bought it and it gav e me three happy years.

I am not over 45, but I started needing more modesty when I had two young kiddos at the pool. I started off wearing athletic shorts over my one piece, but now I am a huge fan of Land's End!!

I wear a tankini with a miniskirt OR my workout shorts. Since sunscreen coverage isn't perfect, and I was getting a lot of burns on my upper back, I added in a zip front white rash guard from LE. This is so convenient for me! I put it on at home before we go, and I can wear it for errands on the way to the pool. I only have to use sunscreen for areas I can easily reach now.

My girls also wear rash guards, shorts, skirts, etc for the water. My sons wear rash guards as well. This has worked well for us, and the only burns we have gotten are on the face.

As long as it's not one of these :

Hilarious hairy chest swimsuits go viral | Daily Mail Online

Who on Earth would want to buy a swimsuit with a man's hairy chest on it?! Hardly flattering, is it?! I thought it was a late April Fool's joke, or something!

My wife is 37 years and she wants to buy thong swimwear. Her body is good but I don't feel comfortable with this. I talk about this one Womens Bikini Bottoms Brazilian T-Back Thong Swimwear Swimsuit UK Size 6 8 10 12 | eBay

Isn't it very extreme for a woman in this age? She is not teenager

I have NEVER found a comfortable swimsuit, so I gave up on them. Plus I burn easily in the sun. I'm 70 and in reasonably good shape, and now I wear swim shorts from Land's End and a short sleeved rash guard over a sports bra. Comfortable at last!

I think folks should wear whatever they like and feel comfy in . I can wear a bikini and I do in my back yard but I feel more comfy in tank bikini in public..
