I've always worn bikinis but now that I've had 3 children (2 of them twins), I have a tummy and need a suit that doesn't say, "Grandma." However, I'm not to the stage of one-piece suits yet as I have not found anything that appeals to me. I was thinking of something more along the lines of high-waisted surf shorts with a bikini top, tankini with bikini bottoms, or anything you'd suggest with some tummy support/control. Thank you so much for your help and for such an awesome website!"
