The Best Swimsuits for Big Busts That Don’t Look Frumpy

Keep everything together without feeling restricted!

Tags:

With all the swimsuits on the internet, it shouldn’t be as hard as it is to find one that fits well and that you feel confident wearing, right?

In our quest for the best fitting swimsuits, we’ve mulled through hundreds of owner reviews to find swim shorts, plus size bikinismodest swim leggings and dresses, and classic slimming one-piece swimsuits. But when it comes to swimsuits for big busts, we had to be more strategic with our research.

Women who have larger breasts have a difficult time finding a suit that provides adequate support without overexposure. The best way to find the right fit (without physically trying on the swimsuit), is to order a suit that offers cup sizing. Stores like Figleaves and Bare Necessities allow you to search by your bra size, and have entire swimwear collections for DD+ cup sizes.

  • Padded
  • Underwired
  • Medium control
  • Bandeau
  • Removable straps

Owner reviews:

I am really pleased with this swimming costume. I was looking for something that would hide my tummy area and that was fitted to my cup size. It is very slimming and the bow and neckline cleverly draw the eye away from the tummy area.

“It is so flattering – I feel really great in it! I ordered my normal bra size (34DD) and it fit perfectly, I love the neckline.”

“As a mature lady I felt good in this swimsuit which fit delightfully. I am so impressed — [I’ve received] so many compliments which boosted my low confidence.”

Figleaves Frida Floral Underwire Bandeau Bikini Top C-G

swimsuits for big busts

$60, Figleaves

Features:

  • Cup sizes C-I
  • Padded
  • Removable straps
  • Underwired
  • Bandeau

Plus size bikinis are having a much-deserved moment. Women love them because you can order different sizes for your top and bottom, ensuring you’re getting the best possible fit. The underwired, padded cups on this floral bikini actually hold up your bust with or without the removable straps (verified by happy owners!).

Owner reviews:

I bought this bikini for a holiday and really love it. I usually can’t buy strapless as I am a bigger cup size and they generally aren’t supportive enough, however this bikini was brilliant and very supportive.

Just got it — first time I’ve ever gone to review a bikini. Absolutely amazing fit and shape (32E cup). Bought with the side-tie bikini bottoms, bought them a size up from normal to make sure they were comfortable. Together it looks fantastic — I’m no toned model but I feel really happy in this! Great print too!

32G was true to size. If you are looking for a strapless that holds up this is most certainly supportive.

This suit might look like a tankini, but it’s actually a beautifully-draped one-piece! It comes in multiple color combinations and provides tummy control, as well as a shelf bra for extra bust support.

Owner reviews:

“I selected the blue ombre color. It fits well. It does not show too much and at the same time it flatters your figure.

Very flattering and I love the colors. In fact, I just ordered another one in a different color. Wore it in the ocean a couple of days ago and it didn’t sag, as I thought it might. Wonderful design.

I think it is well made, very flattering to accentuate your curves yet slimming to hide your tummy, tucks you in, in all the right places.

Owner reviews:

I have ordered this suite many times now. I am a grandma who’s in shape for my age. A little tummy but good legs. This suite is very well made, excellent fabric. It has held up well in our chlorine pool. This is by far the most flattering swimsuit I have. That is why I ordered it again this summer and got the new color solid red. Love them both!!! ps. I never dry my suits in the dryer, I will wash them on delicate cycle but never any dryers!

I love this swimsuit! It is really flattering and comfortable. While it is a little low cut, it remains in place, so you don’t have to worry about being exposed. 

Material is nice and seems to be made and sewn well. I ordered the all black color. I am 55 yrs old and it holds me together well, while flattering my curves. If you have a long torso, you might want to order a size up.
