Women who have larger cup sizes face a particularly tough challenge when it comes to choosing a swimsuit. Full-busted women often have trouble finding a swimsuit that fits all over – if it fits on top, it’s too big elsewhere, or if it fits elsewhere, it’s nowhere near big enough on top! Here at Big Girls Bras, we’ve got a few excellent techniques to find the right swimsuits for larger cup sizes. Two-piece swimsuits are key for women with full busts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fuller coverage. Alternately, if you buy bra-sized one-piece swimsuits, you can actually find a swimsuit that fits all over!
Two-Piece Swimsuits Offer the Best Flexibility
Women who have larger cup sizes tend to have the best luck with fit when they wear two-piece swimsuits. With a two-piece swimsuit, you can get a different size top and bottom as needed to find the right fit for you. Mix and match separates, such as the swimsuits from Sunsets Separates or Swim Systems, offer great flexibility for women with full busts.
Women with larger cup sizes should look for more supportive swimwear styles to help them look their best at the beach. Underwire swimsuit tops are a great place to stop, as underwire styles offer extra support. Wider straps and bra-style bikinis are great for full-busted women, as these offer the most support. Thin spaghetti straps don’t provide as much support, and may not be a good match for full-busted gals.
One of our favorite bikini styles for women with large cup sizes is the Large Cup Size Bikini with Adjustable Band and Underwire 117 by Aerin Rose. This style offers great support without looking massive, and the flattering enamel hardware accent piece at the bust line creates a great classic look.
If you prefer more coverage from your two-piece with a tankini style, take a look at the Aerin Rose Designer Underwire Tankini 227. Underwire style and wider straps offer great support, and coverage is full and flattering – this doesn’t look like a shapeless swim dress that can actually add the appearance of weight to your frame. But we also have a lot of other great tankini styles if you’re looking for something more fun and playful, or want a slightly different style and coverage.
Bra-Sized One Piece Swimsuits
Bra-sized one piece swimsuits offer full-busted women a way to find a swimsuit that fits their bust and will still fit elsewhere. Aerin Rose is one of our favorite designers of bra-sized one piece swimsuits, with a variety of styles to fit and flatter your body in the way you prefer. The Aerin Rose Shirred Front Tummy Control One Piece Swimming Suite 300 is one of our favorite bra-sized one piece swimsuits, which offers a fabulous sweetheart neckline, ruching to camoflauge trouble areas and a tummy control panel for women who want a little toning.
Another great designer, Tara Grinna, also offers some fabulous one-piece bra sized swimsuits if the Aerin Rose styles aren’t quite your thing. And there’s always Magic Suit and Miracle Suit – both offer flattering one-piece styles that are great for women with full busts.
