Exercise! - Aquafit - Swimwear - NEED HELP!!!!!!

I need help finding a swimsuit to wear for Aquafit.

I have given up all hope of finding anything in the stores - nothing ever has any support. I need something that will really hold me. I hate the idea of wearing a swimsuit anyways but nothing makes you feel worse than when your boobs are sagging and bouncing everywhere.

PLEASE if anyone knows where I could order online a plus size (20) swimsuit with underwires or something with Maximum I would really appreciate it.

Have you tried Lands' End? They carry some swimsuits in sizes 18W to 24W and some can be ordered with built-in underwire bras. I just ordered some swimsuits from them (in a regular size) and I was very happy with the fit and the coverage.

I agree about Land's End. That's where I got my swimsuit from when I was a size 20.

Try Clubswim.com. They have a wide selection of suits and other equipment. Also, you might think about some aqua shoes for the pool. Running around on the bottom can be hard on your feet, really scrape them up. I have some shoes from this source as well, I bought the Club swim brand, and they are fine.

I have also bought from Land's End, and their things are great, very durable. They are more expensive but often have sales.

I have also noticed that some ladies wear exercise bras under their suits (I don't know how this feels, but they do it and seem happy with the result.)

I love to be in the water! And I'm always glad to hear of more people trying water exercise.

I love Speedo brand... I love the sporty T back style and although mine doesn't have a wire I'm pretty sure you can get them with wires...

One recommendation I would suggest is to get a bathing suit made of polyester because they wear better in chlorinated water. Speedo has Endurance+ brand and they are beautiful, well, I like them anyways...

I see you are in Canada. Have you tried Addition Elle. They usually have a decent selection coming in right now ("cruise wear"). Most of their suits have some support. Or what I have done in the past is wear a pull on sports bra under a speedo (speedo rarely has a bra built in but tend to fit tight so they help smush everything together. Don't forget that in the water things float so you want to contain things more than lift them.

Thanks for the replies thus far however I still have not found anything.

Addition Elle does have cute stuff however it doesn't hold up well against the chlorine. I had a suit I bought from there that started to wear in 3 weeks.

I have a tankinni swimsuit that fits me but like you said - once your in the water it gets lose and jumping up and down doesnt work with it.

I have given up hope finding something with enough support - I'm trying to now find something that will hold up against the chlorine and I'll just add a sports bra under it for support.

After years of working in the chlorine (lol) I have found speedo stands up best. If you rinse your suit after every use in clean water that helps too.

I've had my Speedo for 2 years, swim on average 1/week and it's still shows no sign of wear... It was worth paying the 90$ for it...

Also with a bathingsuit tight is better as they always stretch out!
