How to Shop for the Perfect Bra-Sized Swimsuit!

How many times have you picked up a fabulous swimsuit that fit perfectly everywhere – but in the bust? For those of us with fuller breasts, it’s really hard to find swimsuits that fit! Happily, swimwear designers have heard our complaints, and they now make an array of bra sized swimsuits designed to fit your bust – and your body. How do you shop for a bra size swimsuit?

Make Sure Your Measurements are Correct
The most important element of shopping for a bra size swimsuit is to have correct measurements! If your measurements are incorrect, even the best bra sized swimwear won’t fit properly. Take a moment to measure yourself before you start shopping – it’ll save you a major headache when you return swimsuit after swimsuit because none of them fit! We’ve made it easy for you – just follow our Step by Step Measuring Instructions to get (and double-check!) your measurements and figure out your correct bra size.

Consult Our Size Chart
We’ve got a couple of useful charts that can help you translate your measurements to bra size. First, check out our Bra Size Measuring Cross Reference Chart, and use your measurements to determine your cup and band size. This is the U.S. Standard bra size chart – European designers go on slightly different sizing, so the next step is to look at our Guide to Cup Sizes by Brand. Yes, our bra sized swimwear brands are listed there, too! An F cup size in Aerin Rose is the equivalent of an E cup in Swim Systems and Sunsets Separates, so it’s important to check the size chart by brand even if you’re confident that your measurements are correct and you know your size!

Our handy drop-down box on the left size of our product pages makes it easy to shop for items by wire type, type, brand – and you guessed it – bra size! Use our Bra Size filter to select your bra size, and you’ll see only the swimsuits that come in your bra size! You can also narrow it down by other preferences if you find yourself spoiled for choice.


Check Out the Reviews for Any Sizing Weirdness
Some of the best resources for finding the perfect fit are our other shoppers! Check out their reviews to see whether there are any sizing quirks or weirdness for a particular swimsuit. For example, one of our bestselling classics – the Fantasie of England Bahamas One-Piece Underwire Swimsuit 8009 pictured up top – has over 30 reviews, and our shoppers regularly comment on the great fit and the true-to-size (chart – remember, Fantasie is European so it’s not standard U.S. bra size). That lets you know that if you’ve measured yourself properly and checked the Fantasie brand size chart, you should have a perfect fit! Our shoppers also tend to comment when something runs large or small in the bust, so you can adjust accordingly.
