Bikinis for big boobs.
Big breasts bikini.
Bikini tops for large breasts.
These are just a few of the less colorful terms our research shows women in need of a bikini for large busts type furtively into Google when swimsuit season comes back around. Good news: We’ve got your search results right here in our warehouse.
“There are plenty of options for the full-busted woman who wants to wear a bikini,” says our in-house swimwear authority Jeni Doherty, who points to brands like Freya, Fantasie and Panache that offer swimwear in bra sizes up to a K-cup. “This gives a full-busted customer the option of buying a swimsuit that will support her a lot like her favorite bra brands.”
Adds Jeni, “Over the years, styling and design have improved tremendously. These brands are hitting on the latest trends and offering a lot more options to try to appeal to all customers looking for a bikini.” That means every age—because, not gonna lie, we want to look this good in a bikini when we’re 90—and every size.
So when we asked Jeni to pick her favorites in each style for the 2016 swim season, she had no trouble finding more than a few of the best bikinis for large busts.
OVER THE SHOULDER TOPS
This style of bikini top gives you a lot of the same support you get from your best bra, Jeni says.
“I love this color combo—it’s a cool, abstract take on an animal print with a touch of metallic to beautifully catch the light,” says Jeni.
“I also love the U-shaped straps because they don’t slip, and you would never know there’s a serious three-part cup going on under there.”
“This is the way to wear a white swimsuit! The bright floral print really pops against the stark background, which contrasts in a fresh, fun way with the stripes. This would be pretty as a bra, and it’s even prettier on the beach!”
“Halters always do wonders for every bust line and have a tendency to look youthful,” says Jeni.
“This style has been a #1 seller for the last few years. It’s maintained that title because it’s a simple, classic pin dot print with a sweet little ruffle detail. In other words, so much crossover appeal.”
“Miss Mandalay happens to be one of my personal favorite labels,” Jeni says. “They consistently have the same body styles year after year; it’s the prints and strap details that change, making it easy to confidently round out your swim wardrobe each year. I really love this vibrant zigzag print and sexy detail at the gore.”
“These typically come with straps that can be worn over the shoulder like a bra or halter. This is a versatile choice for a busty woman looking for a strapless alternative.”
“I love this swimsuit!” Jeni enthuses. “You can never go wrong with black and white, and the tribal-influenced print is very on-trend.”
The strapless bra-style underwire, side boning and foam-lined cups make it wearable even for those who thought they couldn’t get away with this type of cut.
“This is such a great bright print for summer that reminds me of Missoni,” Jeni says. The optional straps can go halter or crisscross; lined underwire cups add support, as does a band that gets increasingly snug as cup size increases.
