I think I've found my perfect swimsuit: the bike shortini
from plus-sized swimsuit site Swimsuits for All. Problem: I'm not plus sized. Does anyone know where I could find something similar that's a couple of sizes smaller?

Guys, I think I have found my dream swimsuit! It's a tankini with bike short bottoms, which eliminate the need for bikini-line shaving. You can buy the bottoms and the top in separate sizes. Everything fits relatively close to the body, so there's not a lot of fabric flapping around when you swim. It costs less than $50.
The problem is that the smallest size for the shorts is a 12, and I probably need more like an 8. Does anyone know of any place to buy something similar in a slightly smaller size? I'm looking at triathlon suits, but they're fancier and more expensive than I need. Extra bonus points if the top either comes in bra sizes or is a compression-style top that can smoosh my ample boobage in.
