I am a bigger girl (size 14 jeans. Biggest part of my jody is my belly) I need to buy a swim suit that looks good on me before mothers day. I dont want to spend $100 oh hell I dont even want to spend $60 on a swim suit. I think those prices are outrageous. Any help or tips? My family and I are going to the lake for mother's day and I would love to have a great time with out worrying if I look ok. No matter what I wear I know I will look big I just want to look pretty too. So I guess the question is: if you're a big girl and love swimming, What kind of swim wear looks good on you and makes you feel good about yourself?

In the past target has had some pretty good separates in the "tankini" styles.

You know, I'm a size 14 but I don't worry too much about my swim suit.  I have tankinis and bikinis but honestly I prefer wearing the bikinis because they are more comfortable in the water.  The important thing really is to find the right cut.  But if you're concerned about your stomach then I would suggest trying a tankini.  It will conceal the tummy area better than anything else.
