One of our Style at 60 community has asked:


“I have a large bust and a very rounded tummy.  What swimwear would suit me best?”  -Carolyn Byrne


Carolyn, this is something most of us can relate to! I think it is very important as we get older to get swimwear that supports us in all the right places – and the bust and tummy are at the top of my list!

All attention will be drawn to the vibrantly printed bodice in this style – making any tummy concerns magically disappear!

Large Bust

For a large bust I would look for swimwear with the following features:

  • wide adjustable straps
  • moulded bra cups
  • ensure that the bust area is lined and has plenty of support
  • boning and built-in underwire
  • A tie up in the front – so that you can adjust the amount of coverage
  • A v-neck, deep scoop or sweetheart neckline are best – avoid high necklines and halter necks unless they have some sheer panelling to create the illusion of the before mentioned necklines
  • a twisted front design

Rounded Tummy

For tummy support I would look for:

  • Rouching across the tummy or the side seams
  • Power mesh lining in the tummy area
  • Empire line styles

  2. That’s why we never fell for each other ‘Steve’, up until 5 months ago I was nearly always underweight. Ha! Ha! Because of meds, I have put on 5 kilos which I hate. I will be looking over my shoulder to see if you are in sight with your beady eyes. lol!

  3. Joan and Sandra have already asked the question…..where do we purchase these swimsuits that you are advertising above ? Would love to know ! Thank you.

  4. I actually bought a swimsuit from Aldis last week, very similar to the photo of the blue one, except it us a two piece. Double lined everywhere, built in cups, gathered slightly at the stomach and came down to very low on the hips. The bottom part, again was fully lined and was a full brief. Very comfortable, looks good and only $17.99. I was size 10, but they had bigger sizes also.
