    Hey….thx!

    What about covering your butt without looking like you are wearing a “mom” swimsuit? It’s not that my butt is fat, I just don’t always feel like letting it all hang out at the beach. I’m moody that way! :)

    PS: I’m long waisted with short legs, so I rarely find a one piece that will work. Happy with bikini bottoms that are fuller coverage and have a V-line waist in front.

    Another question is color? I’m whitey white….so I’ve learned that I look really good, surprisingly in orangey red or dark red suits. I’m wondering what other colors tho would work.

    Thank you for the great advices!!! It is so hard to find a swimsuit that fits. I got the Boyleg Maillot from Seafolly http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/search/23716723.jsp?cm_vc=SEARCH_RESULTS and I think it is one of my best pick for the HB shape ;-) I also love that you give link to different options!!!
