P.S. water arebics at night hahah another crazy thought !
But have spoke to your doctor about swimming? He may have some suggestions Also I have worn swimming shorts and a light tee-shirt in the pool.
There are also "swimming outfits". I found them on the Lands end website. I am 58 and way past bikinis (wouldn't that be a lovely sight; bag and all) sorry I'm American we tend to say such things. But I found the swimming outfits to be attractive and in different colors, they come in two piece or one-piece. Take a look. Lands end.com
I do find the water a great help and feel so much better after I have done the exercises
I decided to take a membership in my local pool so now I have the luxury of the spa at no extra cost, not really supposed to sauna with a bad heart, but 5 mins is ok and the same in the steam, but a bit longer in the jucussi is just wonderful, go and enjoy I wont miss it I feel now if I dont do it I wont be able to walk at all so enjoy
regards from Marcella
I just wear a normal costume no one sees it in the water

It was good but then I moved out of that area, so just started to go to my local pool, found out about the activities and went for the aquafit, the other people in the class now know about my problem and encourage me, sometimes we go to the sports centre pool and have tea it has turned into a real social do and I look forward to it every week, we have also booked our christmas outing. I am thinking of doing pilaties as it's a gentle exercise need to think a bit more I am a bit slow on the up take
