Anyone with truly unfortunate thighs looking for a swimsuit?
I love the beach, and water exercise so just not wearing a swimsuit in public is not an option. So I always wear swim dresses, or tankinis with skirts. But the damn things are NEVER long enough to actually cover the full horror of my inner thighs. EVER. So I always feel self-conscious.
I've looked at some of the truly "modest" swimsuits designed for devout Christians and Muslims who need to cover themselves for religious reasons. But those things are just FUGLY.
We'll be going to the beach soon, so I've been searching again. And just LOOK what I found on eBay!

In case the link doesn't work, just go to eBay and search for the word "Shorebreak". These swim dresses go all the way to the knee!
It's just a dress, so I'll need to wear some bikini bottoms underneath, but how perfect is this??! I was so excited I had to share just in case some of you shared my little problem.
Have fun at the beach!

I felt weird wearing them at first, since they are something my teenage nephews wear, but noticed the last time I shopped for suits, that they were selling all the components for women's suits, EVEN BOARD SHORTS, for women. You could get a bikini or tank style top, and bikini, high rise, several kinds or skirts, short short, or long short ( like board shorts) for the bottoms. And any of them could mix and match.
Here's a pair at Eddie Bauer on CLEARANCE that I was looking at.
I'm like Janice. I wear a bikini with board shorts. (I got new everything this year from Old Navy for dirt cheap during a sale.) That's what I'd always done before I got fat because I like to romp in the waves without having to keep tugging everything or worrying that I'm flashing children. Then, when I'm laying flat, I could slip off the shorts and get a proper tan. (And I did actually surf for awhile which is how I discovered board shorts.)
But, I've also always liked how I look in a wet suit. They have some short ones with slightly longer legs that I think would look awsome with a camisole type bathing suit top (as seen at LandsEnd among other places) and would probably do the trick for your thighs as well as hold in the butt and stomach.
