It's my first summer in San Diego, and I need a swimsuit that will hold in the girls without making me look all frumpy. I'm planning on spending a lot of time in the water diving, swimming, and hopefully learning to surf. (I will not be sunbathing, since my pale pasty self burns right through 45 SPF. So no swimsuits that are only good for lying around in.)
I am 5'4", size 14, and wear a 36DDD or 38DD bra, depending on brand. I have always worn one-piece Speedo-type racing suits, but I am sick of the pancake-boob look. I am more muscular/curvy than pudgy, but the teeny straps on bikinis tend to look ridiculous on my broad shoulders and hips. I am looking for a one-piece or tankini that would be cute and have plenty of support.
I'm aware of fig leaves and bravissimo, but I'd really rather be able to try the suits on. Thanks!
