Body Image and Issues after Weight Loss - On the hunt for a high waisted bikini

06-25-2011, 04:11 PM
My body looks pretty A-ok at this point :carrot:.

The babies, however, did a number on the area below my belly button.

My husband has a retro pinup poster of this girl in a bikini. The bottoms come to the bottom of her rib cage. I'd LOVE to have a suit like that!

I'm having a lot of trouble finding anything in the real world, though.

In real life meaning not online? I don't know of any brick and mortar stores that carry retrostyle swimsuits.

But online,

Huh, I figured I would've been able to find more than that. Bugger.

Thanks guys!! I'll look around.

I just mean, available for purchase and not just in a picture :)

I can't remember what store it was...but the retro look came back in last season or the season before...I don't know, but I remember seeing a lot of suits that you described at common stores (Kohls, Target, etc.)

Anyway, here is a site I shopped on before.

Hope that helps.:D

Those are so cute! Maybe when I reach my goal I could get one to hide my stomach flab.

Modcloth has a few but they tend to be on the pricey side. Esther Williams has really cute ones (including the one-piece sheaths she made famous):

Retro Swimwear (

Some cute ones here!

I'm the opposite- I'm looking for a tankini with a lower cut bottom. Love my lower belly, not so much the upper!
