Swimwear For Big Breasts

Damn it all to hell! I was hoping to save this post until we were a little more acquainted; however, one thing you should know about me is I give tough love when it comes to style and fashion. My tough love is not to demean or tear you down, but to help you look your best–and not to end good friendships over horrible fashion advice.

So here goes…

Recently, I was on Instagram when I came across the most heart-stopping, jaw-dropping selfie I had ever seen–none of which, in this particular instance–was a good thing.

A woman was on a beach wearing a one-piece swimsuit with a plunging neckline just below her navel. Now, the swimsuit would have been fine if the woman’s breast didn’t resemble two flat tires on a Target’s truck; mind you, this was the view of her lying down.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a full bust; however, when gravity has completely let you down (no pun intended), it’s time to be realistic and find a swimsuit that both flatters and supports your full bust.

I will touch more on bra buying and fittings on another day.

Fact one: Larger breasts are much heavier than smaller breasts, therefore, proper support is much more crucial. Even though the majority of support comes from the band, the wire helps to lift and shape your boobies which means string bikini tops are OUT!

Swimwear design has come a long way for women with larger bust lines by giving them more support, better cuts, and better fabric choices.

Listed below are tips for choosing the right swimwear for your bust and style. Just because you have larger boobies doesn’t mean your swimwear choices are limited, it just mean you have to shop around a little more 😉

  • Choose a top with sturdy, adjustable straps. The straps should be as comfortable as the ones on your bras. No string tops, ladies!

 

  • If possible, try and search for swimwear tops in your bra size. I find those types of tops are easier to fit unlike the small, medium, and large which are not made equal. More on size in another post.

 

 

  • Find a top with cups supported by underwire which will help keep the shape of your breasts, or create shape if you’re lacking it.

 

  • Push-up swimwear tops are more of a personal choice; however, if you’re going to go that route, try searching for a push-up no more than a cup bigger than your size. I’m all for the pin-up look ladies, but there is a time and a place for everything.

 

  • If you’re someone who is comfortable wearing a one piece, make sure the cups are sturdy and supportive as a two-piece top. There are one-pieces that do not have underwires, but I would not recommend them because they will just make your breasts look droopy. Always go for underwire if possible. We want perky boobies, not sad and depressed boobies.

 

  • When deciding on colors and prints, make sure the color flatters your complexion. Brighter colors make you appear larger, while darker coolers make you appear smaller. The same rules apply for prints as well. If you have trouble deciding on a print, always look at the background color because it’s usually dominant. If the color is warm (bright)—bigger, and if the color is cool (dark)—smaller.
