Help with altering bathing suit top

woggy | Posted in General Discussion on

I would like to purchase a new bathing suit this year.  It is a two piece with a tank top and shorts (like running shorts).  The problem is I can’t buy separates which would be the ideal purchase.  Therefore, in order for the waist and hips to fit me, the bust/cup size is going to be quite large. 

I have a curvey figure – broad shoulders plus broad back and broad hips, unfortunately, I am getting the menopausal waist – think slim at one time now adding girth at the sides and hip pads.  But my bust has always been small.  I am in between an A and B cup.  I have what is known as the combination body.

What I want to know is how I can eliminate the large bust area that the foam cups are creating?  Any suggestions, websites, books, etc., would really be appreciated.

Thanks so much!

    I don't have an answer to your sewing question, but I do believe Land's End sells separates in their swimwear. (You didn't say if you'd bought the piece already)

    Can you remove the foam cups and replace it with a lycra stretch lining that would be compatible with the rest of the suit? If you don't need a lot of support, I would think that would work.
