The grass is always greener on the other side, and this can feel particularly true when it comes to body shape, and even more so when it’s time to shop for bathing suits. As a girl with DD boobs (I hate even saying that out loud, but that’s a deeper issue/for another article), bathing suit shopping is forever a gamble. I envy my friends who can have fun shopping online for bikinis made out of, like, one single string attached to one small piece of fabric without a damn care in the world. Meanwhile, I have to spend hours in a myriad of dressing rooms trying on multiple different styles of bikini tops and then taking pictures of my boobs at all angles to make sure they look perky and fabulous, and not saggy and unwieldy. Well, the taking pictures part might not be totally necessary, but whatever. It’s a process, and in my humble opinion, a sport.
That is why I am so happy to have found the following swimwear brands that are keeping me, you, and our huge tits in mind when designing their suits. I’m ready to irresponsibly spend my money on supportive bikinis made for boobs like mine.
Skims Swim Plunge Bikini Top
Shop It: Skims Swim Plunge Bikini Top, $42, Skims
Make a splash with the Skims Swim Plunge Bikini Top. With its alluring turquoise hue and plunging neckline, this top isn’t just a swimsuit—it’s a declaration of confidence at the beach, pool, or anywhere in between. Flaunting its tasteful support, it whispers, “Dive in, the water’s fine and so am I.”
Panache Anya Riva Twist Bandeau Underwire Top
Shop It: Panache Anya Riva Twist Bandeau Underwire Top, $41-$75, Amazon
Feeling a bit audacious? Give the Panache ‘Anya’ top a go. With a bandeau style that doesn’t compromise on support, this is the go-to for larger chests wanting a taste of the strapless world. Remember, bandeau doesn’t mean bland, especially not with this beauty.
Aerie Shine Pique Scrunchie Tie String Triangle Bikini Top
Shop It: Aerie Tie String Triangle Bikini Top, $22, Aerie
Of course, we all love Aerie and their body inclusivity campaigns, but I am here to say that not only do they talk the talk, but they also walk the walk. They sell string bikinis that are still able to make my boobs look perky. I repeat, string bikinis that make my DD boobs look perky! My fellow full-chested women know that this is as rare of a find as a blonde on IG not complaining about her roots growing in during quarantine. The price at Aerie is also *chef’s kiss.*
Cuup The Balconette Top
Shop It: Cuup The Balconette Swim Top, $39, Cuup
The Balconette Swim Top by Cuup in sultry lava red is like a love letter to larger chests. It blends comfort and class with its underwire support and alluring color. Be bold, be fiery, and be comfortably you in this standout piece. Each swim top comes in bra sizes so you’ll be sure that they’ll fit you perfectly.
Summersalt The Perfect Wrap One Piece Swimsuit
Shop It: Summersalt The Perfect Wrap One Piece Swimsuit, $95, Summersalt
Summersalt’s swimwear styles have gone viral more than once, especially this wrap one-piece. With form-flattering designs for all body types, you can really get a feel for which bathing suit might be best for you. The styles overall aren’t anything crazy trendy, so shop at Summersalt if you’re looking for that simple, go-to bathing suit that won’t scare your middle-aged neighbors away when you’re outside making TikToks.
Monday Swimwear Tulum Top
Shop It: Monday Swimwear Tulum Top, $87, Monday Swimwear
Monday Swimwear is all about offering the perfect fit for every body type. And, all of the models on their website have big boobs, which I appreciate. Even better is that their fabrics are made from recycled nylon and PET bottles. So, not only will your boobs be supported, but the Earth will be, too. I can’t tell if that was an amazing or awful joke. Moving on.
Good American Compression Swim Tank
Shop It: Good American Compression Swim Tank, $59, Good American
The Good American Compression Scuba Tank in fuchsia takes tank tops to a whole new level. Boasting a bold color and an impressive design, this top offers generous support for larger chests. It’s an unapologetic piece that declares, “I’m here to take on the waves, and look stunning doing it.”
Swimsuits For All V-Neck One-Piece Swimsuit
Shop It: Swimsuits for All V-Neck One-Piece Swimsuit, $83, Swimsuits for All
This brand doesn’t even offer swimsuits in sizes below a 4, which is pretty great as I need way bigger than a size 4 for these boobs. They have so many different styles, and I can trust that every single option will work for my body type. They also offer tankinis and swim dresses if you’re going to, like, a family reunion slash pool party and want to be modest? Or actually, maybe just don’t buy a tankini or swim dress and stick to a one-piece.
