I know that a lot of girls who have recovered from eating disorders (myself included) still don't feel comfortable in swimming situations. I don't own a bikini. Whenever I swim, I wear a skirt or shorts with a tankini top, and I like to keep a towel nearby. I still feel self conscious, but it's definitely nice to be more covered up. There are some flattering options at limericki.com, or you can wear sport shorts and a tank top over your suit. I don't know what kind of activities you have planned for the beach, but if I was in your place, I'd probably wear a cute sundress over my swim suit and then just wade in the water; maybe get my dress a little wet. I don't like swimming in saltwater very much, anyway. Whatever you decide, try not to stress too much--just do what you have to do to feel comfortable and enjoy the day as much as possible. A lot of us totally get what you're going through!!
This is one of the most powerful images that I have seen
