Hello ladies - the search for togs is driving me nuts! I don't want to spend  a lot of money, but I need some support for my poor breast feeding boobs...I like to mooch around in my swimwear so anything without a supportive cup is no good. I'm wearing 12F bras at the moment. Bikini or one piece ok. Any ideas?

not sure how supportive they are but I saw togs on sale in Millers for $13.95 the other day - very budget conscious.  I also believe that Target has 40% off their bathers at the moment - which would bring their sets downs to about $35?

I love Kmart swimmers - I was used to wearing triangle bikinis and the likes - but wanted to try a "tankini" - haven't looked back - still wearing the $10 one I got last season!!!

I find them really supportive in the bust area which I have rarely found.... (though having said that I'm a small C, and that's breast feeding......).

Good Luck!

I'm not sure about sizing but I just wanted to 'second' that Target have a huge range this year.  I went to a 'big' Target (much bigger than my local) and was really pleasantly surprised.  Most one piece suits are around $55 (not discounted) and two pieces would be about the same.

I bought this from Target yesterday - http://shop.target.com.au/p/shape-your-bod...black/P51720407 - I didnt want to spend much (as I rarely swim), but I really liked this one. It was reduced to $41. Really holds everything in, and Im a D cup, and feel supported enough wearing these.
