Nursing swimsuit for plus size mama??

I have a unique issue. This is my first baby to actually nurse (the rest I've EPed due to latch issues and other setbacks) and it's summer. Add that we live 30 minutes from the beach and my parents have a lakehouse an hour away, and we are in swimsuits ALOT.

I have tried just wearing a regular swimsuit and pulling it down, but I end up with my entire boob hanging out and, well, the wind blows pretty strongly near the beach, and well, yeah. The nursing cover I tried just didn't cut it. I exposed myself to all of Galveston last weekend. While this isn't a big deal to me, my almost 13 year old son was MORTIFIED, lol, so I need to figure out something else.

The problem is that I'm a little, um, *fluffy*, so I have a hard time finding swimsuits to begin with, much less a specialized nursing swimsuit. I've done several internet searches and just can't find one that looks like it will work AND fit me.

Any ideas??
