As a woman who wears a 36J UK / 36M US bra, I know the struggle when it comes to finding the best bikinis for big boobs that are actually supportive and cover your chest. I’ve tried hundreds of bikinis, ranging from bra sized bikinis to wireless bikinis, small business bikini brands, Amazon swimsuits, and everything in between. All this to say, if you’re looking for supportive bikinis for big busts, you’re in the right place.

The Best Bikinis For Big Boobs
One of my biggest pet peeves is when brands advertise having great bikinis for big busts and they don’t go above a DD. Or when a brand has enough fabric to cover a larger cup size but then the band size is way too big and therefore offers no support. After lots of research, I’ve created a list of my favorites to help you on your own supportive bikinis for big busts search!
In this post you’re going to find a variety of bikinis for big busts and not every style will be right for you, that’s okay! Everyone has different personal taste, needs in a swimsuit and budget. The goal is to provide a list of big boob friendly brands, give you fit reviews and provide “real life” photos + information to help you find the best fit for your needs. The fuller bust bikinis are broken down by category below. If you already know what type of swimsuits for large chests that you’e looking for, you can jump directly to that section.

Shop My Favorite Supportive Bikinis for Big Busts
For those who don’t want a play by play and just need some links to browse, you can scroll below. A handful of brands aren’t able to be shared here, but quite a few of the supportive bikinis for big breasts are linked!
Best Bra Sized Bikinis For Big Breasts
Before we dive into the best brands and where to shop for bra sized bikinis, let’s talk about bra fittings. Do you know if you are wearing the correct bra size? If not, please be sure to do a fitting before ordering a bra sized bikini. You can get fitted in person at a specialty lingerie store or your nearest Nordstrom. If you prefer to do a fitting virtually, Bravissimo is a great spot to do so! You can also do virtual fittings at Nordstrom and Bare Necessities.
Freya Bra Sized Bikinis
I love adorable bra sized bikinis for big busts, and trust me when I say Freya has some options for us fuller breast gals! Freya also has big boob one piece and tankini options for those who like a little more coverage. The fabric is incredibly comfortable, plus the designs are fun! Depending on the bikini pattern, you can mix and match the bra sized tops with bottoms you already own. You can shop Freya swimsuits at online retailers including Bravissimo, Bare Necessities, HerRoom and Amazon.
As far as sizing goes, Freya bikini tops are by UK bra size. I find that they run a tiny bit bigger than their bras and personally size down a cup size and keep the same band size. With the bottoms, I find they are true to size and wear an XL, and my normal pant size is 14/16.
Freya Komodo Bay High Apex Bikini (left) can be shopped at HerRoom, Petticoat Fair (code Casey10 for 10% off), Bare Necessities, Zappos, Walmart and Amazon. The Freya Garden Disco Underwire Plunge Bikini (right) can be shopped at Walmart, Bare Necessities, HerRoom, Zappos, Amazon and Bravissimo.
Freya Check In High Apex Bikini (left) can be shopped at HerRoom, Bare Necessities, Zappos, Walmart and Amazon. The Freya Jewel Cove High Apex Bikini (right) can be shopped at Petticoat Fair (code Casey10 for 10% off), Bravissimo, Walmart, Bare Necessities, HerRoom, Zappos and Amazon.
Elomi Bra Sized Bikinis
The name Elomi might sound familiar because they make some of the best bras for large busts! My love for the brand doesn’t end there… They make some fabulous bra sized bikinis for big breasts. They also have some great one piece swimsuits for fuller breasts, if that’s more your style! You can shop Elomi swimsuits at online retailers including Bravissimo, Bare Necessities, HerRoom and Amazon.
Because Elomi is a bra sized swimsuit brand, you’ll want to make sure you know your correct size. They are usually listed in UK sizing. If you like suits a little less snug in the band, order your sister size. I find the bottoms to be true to size, or size down if you’re in between for a more snug fit.
Plus Size Elomi Plain Sailing Ruffle Underwire Bikini (left) can be shopped at Petticoat Fair (code Casey10 for 10% off), Bare Necessities, HerRoom, Walmart and Amazon. The Plus Size Elomi Plus Bazaruto Plunge Underwire Bikini (right) can be shopped at Bare Necessities, HerRoom, Amazon , Walmart and Bravissimo.
Not pictured yet, but I wanted to share a few more Elomi bikinis you can shop. Elomi Kotiya Underwire Plunge Bikini can be shopped at Bare Necessities, HerRoom, Amazon and Target. Elomi Savaneta Underwire Plunge Bikini can be shopped at Target, Amazon, HerRoom, Bare Necessities and Walmart.
Fantasie Bra Sized Bikinis for Large Busts
Fantasie, similar to Elomi and Freya, is a bra sized bikini brand for big busts. The quality of swimsuits is high and you can expect these to stay in your closet for multiple summers. The designs skew a bit more mature vs Freya, and are slightly smaller in size range compared to Elomi. You can shop other Fantasie swimsuits at a variety of online retailers, such as Bare Necessities, Amazon, Walmart and Nordstrom.
As far as sizing goes, you will typically see the bikini tops in UK bra sizes. Personally, I find these swimsuits to fit true to size and sometimes the band can be a bit more snug compared to other bra sized swimsuit brands. The bottoms are true to size, but I would suggest going up in size vs down if you find yourself in between sizes on the size chart.

Bravissimo Supportive Bikinis for Big Busts
Bravissimo is a retailer that carries other bra sized swimsuit brands, and also has their own live of incredible bra sized swimsuit options. If you happen to live in the UK or NYC, they have in person shops that you can visit to try on swimsuits, as well as bras, sports bras, lingerie, etc, in person. Bravissimo specializes in D cup and up options and has proven to be a great option for busty gals in the swimsuit department.
As far as sizing goes, I do find the swimsuits to have slight differences. Bravissimo offers free online fittings, so keep that in mind while shopping!
My Favorite Wireless Bikinis for Big Busts
If you’re looking for a bikini for big breasts without wires, don’t you worry, I have you covered! These are some of my favorite bikini options that do not have underwire. Within this section you’ll find wireless bikinis that are sold as separates from the bottoms, as well as some that are sold by the set.
Amazon Bikinis for Big Breasts
There are surprisingly quite a few options when it comes to Amazon bikinis for large chests. On the positive side, the price point for a set is almost always less than $40. On the down side, the wireless bikinis are sold as sets. This post might be helpful if you want a full run down of Amazon bikinis, or keep reading for a few of my personal favorites.
This $36 Daci ruffle bikini offers great chest support and runs a bit big, so size down if in between. I am wearing XL and usually wear size 14/16. It’s available in sizes L-24 Plus and 15+ color variations.
The $30 black bikini is a super unique find for a wire free bikini for big boobs! The tie around element is attached on each side and a fun detail to elevate your wireless bikini. If you want to see it in action, check out this video review. It’s available in sizes XL-4X and 10+ color variations. I am wearing XL.
This $35 high waisted Yonique bikini offers a simple bikini top with coverage and support for your chest and unique bottoms that support your tummy. It comes in sizes 12 plus-24 plus and 22 color variations. I’m wearing 14 plus.
Eloquii Plus Size Bikinis for Big Breasts
This is my first summer finding Eloquii plus size bikinis that work for my chest, and I am stoked about it! I find Eloquii to have some of the most gorgeous, eccentric swimsuits for plus size women. They have bold options in styles, cuts and patterns, which can make rocking a swimsuit feel like a fashion show moment.
ASOS Bikinis for Big Busts
I absolutely adore ASOS “fuller bust” bikinis. My favorites from 2022 are sadly not available anymore, but I will definitely be ordering more wireless bikinis this year to try out!
One reason ASOS sticks out to me as a great resource to find supportive bikinis for big busts is because of the options! They carry brand such as Peek & Beau swimwear, Wolf and Whistle, Figleaves (a swimsuit brand for fuller busts that I used to wear all the time!) and more. Plus the “Fuller Bust ASOS Curve” options.
Show Me Your Mumu Full Bust Swimsuits
This is my first summer trying out Show Me Your Mumu bikinis and so far so good! These wireless bikinis don’t offer a ton of lift and support, but there’s enough for me personally to feel comfortable in them. I have the Destin Top in XXL and the Del Ray Bottom in XL (black) and XXL (white).
My favorite Walmart bikinis from 2022 are no longer available, but I’m keeping an eye out!
Small Business Bikini Brands
If you are looking to support small businesses with your swimsuit purchases this summer, here are a few great options! These small business bikini brands offer great options for supportive bikinis for big busts.
Kitty and Vibe Wireless Bikinis
Kitty and Vibe is a newer brand to me as of summer 2020, but I love how passionate the owner is. Their core belief is “Kind is Our Vibe” and you know what, more of us need this attitude! A brand that promotes self love and confidence, and listens to their customers to create products that fit all body types, is a brand I can get behind.
There are a few different wireless bikinis I have from Kitty and Vibe… I have the Scoop Bikini Top in size G, as well as the Plunge Bikini Top in H. Both bikini tops have thick straps, which is a huge plus for me. I also appreciate the coverage provided- no spillage here! The Scoop Bikini Top feels like a very low impact sports bra, aka very comfy/lounge vibes. This top is $48, but you can get the reversible top for just $10 more! The Plunge Bikini Top is a tie back, which is accommodating to various band sizes, and the straps are adjustable. Such a stellar option when finding supportive bikinis for big busts is tough! Follow Kitty and Vibe on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok to stay up to date with new designs. And be sure to use code Casey15 for $15 off if you shop any of these small business bikinis!
Night Dive Swim Supportive Bikinis for Big Boobs
Night Dive Swim is one of my favorite small business swimsuit brands. These wireless bikinis are sustainably made and offer inclusive sizes for their customers. Plus, it’s a woman owned brand, which is always my favorite to support!
I wear a 2x in the MALIBU top and that provides enough coverage for me. I also find the straps to be comfortable and love that they’re adjustable! Pair it with the HONEY or BOBBY bottom and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous set. I find the bottoms to be true to size and love that they support my tummy and hips without constricting.
This is a small business swimwear brand that fits 7 sizes in 1, so I was a bit shocked to find out the bikini top worked for my fuller chest size! Youswim has wireless bikinis in different styles and colors, but they are all meant to stretch out for different bust sizes,
Bikinis for Big Busts Honorable Mentions
A few other bikinis for large busts that I’ve tried and like, but wouldn’t call them my “go to” options for me personally!
You might recognize the brand Yummie as a brand you’ve ordered bodysuits or shape wear from, but they also have swim! This bikini comes in a few colors and sizes 8-18. I am wearing 16 in both the bikini top and the bikini bottom.
I’ve only tried one Good American bikini… but so far so good! I was shocked to find a strapless bikini for big breasts that didn’t have underwire. Unfortunately this color worn here is from last season, but they have the same style in other fun colors. As far as sizing goes, I wore a 5 in the top and 4 in the bottoms. And I am on a mission to try more Good American bikinis so I can report back with more info and bump them up to a “favorite”! You can shop Good American swimsuits on a few different online retailers including Revolve, Shopbop and Nordstrom.
I will be back with 2023 Old Navy swimsuit options!
To be totally honest, I don’t have the highest hopes for Abercrombie swim, but a few busty friends had luck with the curve line. I figured I should give it an honorable mention until I give it a go for myself.
Full Figured Bikinis I Tried and Didn’t Like
I’ve tried half a dozen bikinis for big busts from Swimsuits for All, and it’s hit and miss! I’m at the tail end of being able to fit in most of the fuller breast bikini tops (36HH UK/36L), but found the Gabi Fresh Swimsuits for All line was the best option.
SPANX has some great swimsuit options, but the one piece I tried didn’t work for me personally. It was about 2-3 cup sizes too small, and that’s kept me from ordering bikinis from SPANX.
Unfortunately ModCloth was a no from me in both wireless bikinis and one pieces.
Andie Swim had some fun options in a range of sizes, but the bikini tops that I have tried so far, haven’t worked. I did have luck with a one piece style (Malibu in XL long), if that’s something on your radar.
Monday Swimwear has such cute suits, but I tried their best bikini top for big boob option and failed miserably. Ooph, the spillage. I would say this falls into supportive bikinis for big breasts in the earlier letters of the alphabet.
Additional Resources for Fuller Bust Ladies
If you’re on the hunt for more things swim, you check check out some of the best one pieces for big breasts or some Amazon one piece swimsuit options. There are also swimsuit rounds up by color: red swimsuits, pink swimsuits, black swimsuits and more to come!
