Thank you so much everyone for your replies! That means a lot to me. :) I will read through them again and decide on the best path forward to start going to the pool in the coming weeks. I will post an update too when I start going regularly. :)

I have used the family changing room or changed at home which involves slipping into a pair of yoga pants in a damp swimsuit before getting in the car after a swim. Even if tucking is a challenge it won't be noticed if you are swimming laps. Just figure out a plan to get yourself in and out of the water quickly. Once we are in the water we all look like aliens in our swim caps goggles anyway :-) In my early days I was so nervous but now I'm just another woman getting her exercise :-)

As for swimwear, you should check out swimoutlet.com. They have a great selection including styles with swim skirts.

I wear a two piece bikini but the bottoms are used to tuck and keep everything in place and then I wear boarding shorts over them. I don’t know why I thought to do this but it’s a super cute look and no one is ever the wiser. I like that pretty much no matter what I do, those board shorts aren’t coming off. It lets me relax and engage in every kind of water activity.

Just a note on Walmart, they only have a single set of changing rooms for all sexes as far as I've noticed. The attendant is just there to count the number of items you go in with, and make sure you come out with the same count. Once she pointed out the jeans I was trying and asked, "Did you want the men's?" but she was fine when I said no these are what I want.

If so, then why not?

My cis wife also wears board shorts sometimes.
