There’s nothing worse than spending your days at the pool, lake, beach, etc, worrying about what you’re wearing! I’m a big believer that confidence comes from within, but having something cute to wear that makes you feel comfortable is also a great confidence boost. As someone who wears a 36M US/36J UK bra, I know the challenges that come with finding brands that carry swimsuits for really big busts. For most of my life I struggled to find great swimsuits for big busts, and I am so grateful that more options are available to us these days!
In this post you will find some of my favorite swimsuits, swimsuit brands and general places to shop for swimsuits for large breasts. You’ll find an array of styles: bikinis, tankinis and one pieces, and different price points. Keep in mind usually a higher priced suit will last you many summers because it’s high quality!
Favorite Brands That Offer Swimsuits for (Really) Big Busts
If you try out any of these swimsuits for big busts, be sure to let me know! And if you have any follow up questions, don’t ever hesitate to reach out to me via Instagram or email! I hope this helps you find a suit that suits you!
Not every swimsuit style at TA3 had worked for my large breasts, but I have found this to be a swimsuit brand that carries swimsuits for really large busts! Not only do I get support for my chest, but my stomach gets a real nice hug with these swimsuits. When available, I like the Xlong option in their swimsuits. When it’t not available, I wear the regular XL. You can find these swimsuits in sizes XS-4X. The Surfy and Squarey are the two styles pictured above.
If you’re shopping online for bra sized swimsuits, you’ve probably come across Bravissimo. They are one of the brands that carry various brands and have an in-house brand for bras, swimsuits, etc. They are a go to for me when it comes to swimsuits for big busts! They offer virtual fittings to help you nail down your specific size in the styles you have your eye on. I find that the hidden underwire styles (orange swimsuit on the right) run big and I will size down 2-3 sizes. The swimsuits that are visible underwire (pink halter top in the middle) usually run true to size. The non wired swimsuit options (black one piece on the left) are a bit generous with sizing.
I love a sassy swimsuit for big boobs, and Freya fits the bill! They have so many adorable options for bikinis, tankinis and one pieces for big boobs. I typically wear XL in the Freya swim bottoms, which is a true to size fit for me. But I also want to highlight that you could mix and match your own bottoms with Freya tops if that fits your budget/needs better! These photos only show a small glimpse into all the options from Freya! The tops are bra sized in UK sizing- be sure to get properly fitted before shopping, friends!
I’m a bit of an Elomi STAN…. between my strapless bras, sports bras, every day bras and swimsuits… I own a lot of Elomi lingerie! Whether you are looking for bikinis or one pieces, Elomi is a brand that has you covered with high quality swimsuits for really big busts. A few of my favorite styles from over the years are in the photos above. I wear an XL in the bottoms and typically size down 1-2 cup sizes and keep the band my usual size.
Kitty and Vibe
One of my favorite small businesses swimsuit brands is Kitty and Vibe! I love that they are a brand built on self love, inclusivity and sustainability. And of course the fact that they make swimsuits for big busts is a major plus in my book! Kitty and Vibe’s sizing for bottoms is different than anything I’ve come across. The Kitty Size takes into account your hips and butt to make sure that bottoms aren’t too skimpy or too saggy! The plunge bikini top and scoop neck bikini are my personal favorites- I wear the swimsuit in size H. Plus, they gave us a discount code for $15 off $95 or more, CASEY15.
I have a few different Summersalt styles and love them all! They each offer a different level of support and coverage, and are great in their own unique way. One thing all of these one piece swimsuits have in common: bright, colorful and flattering as heck! I’m wearing the size 14 in all of the Summersalt swimwear styles, and the sizes range from ranges 2-22. You want the swimsuit to be pretty snug when dry, as they expand a bit once you get in the water. PS- Code Casey10 will save you $10 on any Summersalt purchase!
