Do you know of anywhere I can find a trendy but not-too-revealing swimsuit? I’m a mom who is pushing 40, and bikinis and hi-cut waists aren’t really right for me (nor are they good for anyone else who will see me at the beach during our vacation).

While you won’t find anything that quite looks like something you’d see people wearing in the 1920s, there are lots of nice options for swimwear that doesn’t require you to show a lot of skin!
Some of the swimwear we most liked are the modest tankinis from Hapari. Their two piece swimsuits are stylish, cover you up more than most suits, but look really stylish. As a bonus, you can mix and match the tops and the bottoms, so you could create the perfect look for you. (One of the Hapari combos is shown on the right.)
LimeRicki Swimwear also offers some great tankini top options, which you can couple with a range of traditional swimsuit bottoms, boyshort styles and short skorts.
Another solution is to check out the swim shirts and shorts/pants, such as those sold as rashguards (for surfers) and as sun protection apparel.
If the above doesn’t offer enough coverage for you, there are still other options:
Simply Modest Swimwear offers very modest swimming attire — think capris with dresses — and was created by a woman with strong religious beliefs about how much skin is appropriate to show.
Then on the far extreme of the modesty scale, there’s Bodykini Muslim swimwear, which is “designed to enhance athletic performance while upholding the Koranic principle of modesty by only exposing face, hands and feet.”
