Anyhoo, I don't feel my age, and I don't think I look too shabby either, but that's beside the point. The point is that there are no swimsuits that are age appropriate and actually look good.
Though I tease my hubster about wearing a bikini, I won't . . . when we have company. In the privacy of our own pool, I will, but company or out in public? Naw, I barely did that when I was smokin' hot in my twenties, why would I do it now when everything has shifted South?

|Old lady suits (also NOT me)|
So what to do?
Well, hubster suggested I look at the style of my daughter's competition swim suits.
Competitive practice suits are one piece with a moderate high leg opening and triple straps (two over the shoulders that V in the middle of the back with material connecting from the sides). See picture.
AND they come in fun colors!
Sooo . . . I tried my daughter's on **shhhuuush** Don't tell her!
Of course, it was too small, but not by too much, considering she's my height, but I outweigh her by about 15-20 pounds. But I liked the feel and look of it.
So now that I KNOW what I want it's just a matter of finding the right size and color. And if I can't find the right color, I can always order it on the Internet after I find the right size.
Later, Peeps! I'm going swimsuit shopping!
