I used to get so frustrated and mad wondering why no one had made swimsuits for people with bigger boobs, swimsuits that did the same things good bras do and had underwires and shape and support and stuff.
People HAD made them, I just hadn’t found them yet.
Here they are!
Okay, a little more info: all the swimsuits here fall into the full bust category, which isn’t the same as plus size, although there IS overlap. Full bust sizes range from 28-38 in band sizes and DD-G (or higher) cup sizes, while plus size lingerie generally starts at a 36 band. While this post is mostly focused on the full bust category, there are some styles in the plus size category as well. If you’re looking for swimsuits that fit exactly like your regular underwired bras, I’d recommend suits from lingerie brands like Panache, Freya, Fantasie, Bravissimo, etc. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous or aren’t as particular about fit, definitely check out ASOS’ offerings, which offer fun, fashion-forward and youthful styles I’ve never, ever seen in this size category before.

I am someone who needs a bikini or swimsuit only once or twice a year, and yet putting this post together has somehow left me with a 20-item shopping cart? Help?
Any of these pieces make it to your Spring/Summer wishlist?
