Any good bathing suits out there?

Hi, I am trying to buy my first bathing suit post baby, and I don't need it to be nursing compatible as we now eat some solids, but the sheer size of my chest while nursing has eliminated almost all suits. I look like a **** star in most normal suits, can anyone make a suggestion of a store/brand style that will support and not make me look to old and momish.

Try looking on Newport News. They have all kinds of suits designed to hide figure flaws, support the chest, and make you look like a million bucks. I bought one that is pretty "momish" but my baby is due in a month, and I know there will be a lot of stuff that I don't want to look at that it will hide. They have plenty of suits that are more what you are looking for, I think.

I went swimsuit shopping this weekend and felt the same way! All the cute suits my boobs just looked ridiculous in and the ones that actually provided coverage looked like something my grandmother would wear. They don't design swimsuit well for nursing boobs at least cute ones anyway.....

I second Newport News- my two favorite suits are from them and they are true to measurements and often sell mix and match if you need two sizes for top and bottom. Also Land's End usually has a few very classy tankinis designed for coverage, etc. without making you look frumpy-some of their suits are pretty frumpy, but there are usually a few good ones tucked in there.
