Swimsuit season. Ugh. What do you wear?

Winter here so not a concern for me at the moment.
I am right at the point of reassessing my swimming attire. My body hasn't completely let go on me yet but the process has sure begun!
It was a hot summer last season and I was in a bikini often. If I still get any 'looks' I think they are of disgust rather than admiration these days lol. But I am not shamed of my body or how I look.
Whatever I wear it needs to be practical. A combination of loose ties and powerful surf embarrassed me more than once last summer!
But that's another story... 😱

I buy my swimsuits from Ross. They have some great deals and I can buy a swimsuit that looks pretty decent for $15
 
Luckily, I do most of my swimming here at the pool in our over-55 RV park. There aren't a lot of gorgeous bods to make me feel bad about how *I* look in a swimsuit.

I stumbled onto a website several years ago for a nudist over-55 RV park. Pretty graphic photos of people frolicking in the pool led me to appreciate the requirements for swimsuits in our pool.
 
I've recently bough a surfboard. haven't surfed in about 50 years. And I bought a pair of these to wear when I go.
But I am not going out there until I get down to 200lbs or less. Right now I am at 205.

I wear speedos, since I swim laps, when I'm in a swimming pool. My daughter always warns me to not wear my speedos when I come to her pool parties. I obey. It's hilarious.

Pictures would be good of you in your swimsuit falling off the surfboard 😂😅🤭

I'm so glad I found this thread. I bought a one-piece swimsuit at Dillards a couple of years ago and paid a pretty penny for it. Well, that was ten less pounds ago and a much firmer body. It's just not looking uptosnuff any longer. Time for a new suit.

I'm going to check out your links and the different styles they have now. I'm going on my first cruise this November and I want to have a decent looking suit to wear. Thankfully, I do have a couple of decent cover-ups.
