Also I cant really wear shelf bra swim because it makes me look saggy, then the halters hurt my neck, ugghh so tough!!!
underwire is ideal but i need something strapless or i'll be tan-line ridden. unfortunately, bandeau is just about the most unflattering suit silhouette ever, even on skinny chicks! i agree tho, halter kills my neck because i have to tie it SO tight if i don't want my boobs hanging down around my waist.

usually on vacation i say, "screw it, i'll never see any of these people again!" LOL ... um, not the case for a DW! i'll be in a bathing suit around people we know (all who have cameras!) all week long! yikes!

I can't stand halters either!

Try this one:

Surplice tankini with corsage at Newport-News.com

I took off the flower though, as it kept buggin me. It has a underwire bra built in. It's my all time favorite suit, so I bought two. They only have 14W and 16W right now (on sale), but they tend to sell this one often.

The top is actually longer than shown on the model, so no embarassing belly shows. wink.gif

I can't do anything with a shelf bra either! The girls are just too out of control in almost everything. I have actually took the time to sew an underwire bra into a bathing suit that wasn't supportive enough, it actually worked great!

It was a tankini and I cut the bra straps and sewed it in, sewing the straps of the bra along the straps of the suit and the back of the bra into the back of the suit. It sounds confusing but it worked really well! The girls were nice and perky! wink.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
