What kind of swimsuit should a woman with a "flat butt' wear?
All if them are so geared to the model type ladies with perfect bodies or such a good shape that swim suits are designed for them..

And where can I find swim suits for this "flat butt". I am not having luck in the stores or on-line.

Thank you very much.
Marty



Hi Marty, the best bathing suits for a flat butt would be swimdresses, skirtinis, shortinis and boyshorts (two-piece bottom).

Swimdresses and skirtinis are made to disguise your butt -- they also visually add a hint of butt volume so that your butt won't look flat either. Boyshorts are perfect for women who don't like baring their (big or flat) butt cheeks out in public because it covers them as well as slightly lifts them.

Wearing a print top or a tankini/bikini top in a bright color with a dark colored bottom can also draw attention away from your butt.

I personally like boyshorts better than bikini (high-cut) bottoms because they give my bottom half some roundness. But to warn you they do tend to shorten legs :/

If you're really self-conscious about your flat rear you can always opt for an invisible butt enhancer. Hope this helps!

Boyleg Swimsuit for Tall Women

by Lena
(Newcastle, UK)

Where to get one?? Plus I would love it to have some padding. And open back. I'm 38, 5'11' and UK size 12, I just want to be comfortable on my holidays.


Padded boyleg swimsuits are a little tricky to find. But I did find a couple but with a medium low-cut leg on the Net:


Longitude Boyleg swimsuit
Longitude Gold Leaf Empire One Piece Swimsuit/
Swimsuits for All


Boden purple print Boyleg swimsuit
Purple Print Boyleg Swimsuit/ Boden UK

Black boyleg swimsuit
Zoggs Ella Scoopback - Black Longer Length/ Simply Swim

If those doesn't strike your taste I would advise you to go for tankinis or swim dresses as they're easier to find than boyleg swimsuits.

They have same similar effect - providing modest coverage and slimming features.

Boyleg swimsuit alternative tankini or swimdress
Sea Spray Polkadot Tankini Swimsuit/ Figleaves


You can also purchase bra pads separately. I highly recommend brapads.com to purchase padding made to wear in the water with your swimsuit.

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Where Can I Find Cropped Tankini Swimsuit Tops With a V Hem?

by Sheri
(Savannah, GA)

I have spent HOURS looking online for a tankini swimsuit top that has is cropped and has a v hem on the bottom. This style is SOOO flattering for someone who doesn't want to wear a bikini top, but also doesn't want to wear a long tankini. The cut minimizes your waistline with the v-hem. The style that I am looking for is similar to the one above.

Thank you!!!



You're right about the V-hem of the cropped tankini top looking flattering. Unfortunately, they're not that common and I think that the pink multi (the same as the picture you provided) and blue multi at Ami Club Wear are the only ones I've found when doing a research on your request.

An alternative would be to send in a long tankini top to a local tailor who can sew the hem into a V-shape. It's not a common practice, but it's absolutely possible because that's what tailors do - fix, sew and alter garments :-)

A friend of mine recently had the hem of a bathing suit altered (shortening the hem so that her legs will look longer) and it looks great! It gives you an opportunity to pick whatever tankini top you like and have it fixed into your own liking.

To my other readers: If any of you know where to find V-hem shaped tankini tops please leave a note! :-)
