    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.

          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!

              Steph- I cant believe you sewed your own bar in. How did it work just the front part and not the back straps??

                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!

                    Land's End also has a Tankini with a bra, but it ain't cheap!
