Well, I'm finally getting in my summer beach trip... husband is taking me to Aruba (yay!) next week.

I was just trying on my old swimsuits, which are a bit ratty, plus two new ones I was checking out.

I have two perennial swimsuit problems. I am mostly rectangle shaped but I have chunky upper thighs. So when I wear a swimsuit, it creates a bulging out line along the hip from the leg opening. And all in the same suits, mind you, my bum is so flat that the leg opening always slides up in back so that half of it is showing. So basically the opening looks too tight on the side yet too loose in the back.

Is this a problem that can be fixed by alterations? Do any of you have swimsuits that work for you that address these kinds of issues?
