Swimsuits for Large Busts & Supportive Swimwear for Big busts
If you trend toward the bigger-busted and have ever stood in front of a rack of swimsuits wondering which bikini top could possibly contain and support your large bust, the solution is surprisingly simple: look for a bikini top with a true-to-bra size.
So many large busted women steer away from bikinis because they only see themselves in sizes small, medium, large or extra-large, and they don’t know which will fit or support them best. That’s all the more reason to seek out bikinis with real bra-like construction, underwire and adjustable straps to give you the lift you need to feel secure.

DD+ swimsuits are designed to support, lift and shape larger breasts. Most swimwear for big busts includes an underwire bikini top or swimsuit with a built-in bra, which offers amazing support for large busts. This supportive bra has a hook-and-eye back closure, and the bra band is concealed inside the swimsuit. Some large bust swimwear also has double-lined or mesh-lined cups, which offer a beautiful, natural-looking shape. Large cup swimwear comes in a wide range of styles including tankinis, balconette bikini tops, halter bikini tops, one-shoulder one-pieces and more.
Your favorite lingerie brands are taking what they know about bras and applying it to supportive swimwear
If you’re a DD+ cup or above, these swimsuits for large busts are tailor-made for you. These DD+ swimsuits, from the likes of Freya, Fantasie and Panache, are constructed exactly like a bra, in varying silhouettes, bra-sizes and coverage levels. In back, there tends to be a clasp rather than a tie because, as with a bra, that’s where most of the support comes from. The size range is typically 28-40 in the band and D-K in the cups. Most of the bra-sized swimsuits for large busts come from lingerie brands and have as much style as substance. At the end of the day, you’re probably going to feel more supported and comfortable in a swimsuit made by a lingerie brand.
Your favorite swimwear brands are now offering cup-size swimwear
At the same time, traditional swimsuit makers are picking up a few pointers from the lingerie world. If you’re a DD or smaller, you can wear these suits. There’s greater flexibility in the sizing: some are sizing their cup size bathing suits Small D, Medium D, etc.; others go from around a 34D to a 38D.
We like these swimsuits for full-busted women who don’t need as much support. They tend to be a little more forgiving in fit because of design details like multiple closure options and adjustable tie straps to make as loose or as tight as you like. Check out brands like Coco Reef, Sunsets and Birdsong.
