Swimsuits for All makes styles for sizes 4-24, and its swimwear is no exception—they have a ton of options for big busts, no matter your size. (I, personally, have about four suits from them.) This particularly flattering, underwire style can be worn with straps or as a bandeau, and has a double keyhole back with G-hook closures, meaning it’ll keep you supported and won’t fall off.

Sizes: 4-24

Customer review: “I swim every day, so I keep a variety of different swimsuits on hand. This style certainly is flattering and wears well at the pool. Thanks for the great fit and look.”

The Flattering One Piece

The Flattering One Piece

La Blanca Island Goddess One-Piece Swimsuit

This one-piece wonder is, as one reviewer put it, the best “non-basic basic.” Shirring through the waist is great for those who hate too-taut one-pieces (especially after getting wet), and the scooped neck and molded, soft cups (that are removable) are great for giving (and keeping) shape.

Sizes: 2-16

Customer review: “I had two concerns when purchasing this suit—as a 32F I typically look for suits that are sold by cup size and I also tend to buy swimsuits with a pattern, hoping that will provide camouflage. Quite surprisingly this suit was both flattering and supportive. Even without an underwire of molded cups, it kept everything in place.”

The Supportive Plunge

The Supportive Plunge

Athleta Longline Plunge Bikini Top D-DD

Athleta marks (many of) its swimsuit tops with sizing, and this one is crafted particularly for sizes D-DD, meaning it’s great for busty folks. The plunge look adds some (often missing) shape and a bit of sexiness while the band and criss-cross back with extra back tie provide lift and support. And did I mention it’s quick-drying?

Sizes: XXS-XL (D-DD)

Customer review: “I have three of this exact top in different colors. I love it!! So comfortable and supportive, but also cute. I use it for everything from laying out to wakeboarding and surfing.”

Summersalt The Perfect Wrap One-Piece

This wrap one-piece by Summersalt is perfect for giving shape (and sexiness), while also providing great coverage and keeping things in one place. The wrap compression makes sure that everything stays put (if you know what I’m saying), and the style comes in a number of two-toned color options that’ll make you want at least two. (Or maybe that’s just me.)

Sizes: 2-22

Customer review: “I tried on a BUNCH of different Summersalt suits to see which style suited me best, and this one was PERFECT. I have 36G breasts, and I feel supported enough, without the discomfort of underwire.”

Everlane The Square-Neck Bikini Top

Now 44% Off

This square-neck bikini top is a great top for big busts for a number of reasons—it has removable cups (thank the Lord), it has adjustable straps and a back band, and it has quick-drying technology so you don’t sweat right through it when not in the water. Plus, it’s been fit-tested on 112 women of different sizes for the perfect construction.

Sizes: XXS-XXL

Customer review: “I wear a ridiculous 32G and most bikinis look pornographic on me. I’ve typically just opted for a conservative one-piece, but really wanted to try a two-piece. This top isn’t flashy, it’s almost sporty, but it really holds boobs in the right place without pushing them up. The lining is nice to have and it’s easy to adjust all the straps (back and shoulders) to your preference.”

Customer review: “I tried on a ton of tops and nothing fit! This was the only one and is by far a great option for any chest size, but especially larger cups (DDD). It is comfortable and the sewn-in cups work like a charm. You won’t get a fantastic tan with it going up higher on your neck, but the fit and style are great for me!”
