We all know the struggle of finding the perfect swimsuit, especially for those of us with a bustier chest. Some swimsuits often leave us feeling unsupported, give us quad boob spillage (if you know, you know) and have us popping out all over the place. If that’s a struggle you’ve had recently, you’ve got a few options. You can continue the hunt for “regular” swimsuits (and hopefully my other swimsuit reviews help you narrow down your search) or we can explore where to buy bra sized swimsuits.
If you’re on the hunt for something that provides a bit more support than your average swimsuit, then maybe it’s time you look at bra sized swimwear! Trust me when I say that finding the right fit for your body will help you feel so much more confident while you’re rocking a swimsuit. Whether you go a route that is wireless or want to dive into built-in underwire swimsuit options, buying a swimsuit that is your bra size can help take out some of the guesswork of hoping a swimsuit fits your chest. They’re designed to provide the exact support, coverage and fit you need for you size. So now it’s just a matter of finding the perfect style to suit your shape and your personal taste in swimsuits!
There are quite a few brands that offer bra sized swimsuits, and slowly but surely I’m seeing sizes expand to offer bra sized swimsuits for fuller busts. I’m hopeful that the industry will continue to evolve and offer more small and big boob bra sized swimwear options for gals looking for suits that are supportive and offer the coverage they need. I’ve put together a list of where you to buy bra sized swimsuits, along with some exact swimsuit recommendations, to help you find the swimsuit that suits your specific needs.
Shop Bra Sized Swimsuits
While this isn’t fully comprehensive of every retailers that sells bra swimsuits, I did want to make a quick and easy shopping function if you’re not wanting to read through the whole post on where to find bra sized swimsuits. Simply scroll through the links below to see both small and big boob bra sized swimwear options.
Where To Buy Bra Sized Swimsuits
The selection of bra sized swimsuits today is considerably larger than ever before. This season, I am seeing tons of new and exciting designs curated especially for women with larger busts and honestly, I’m loving it! Adorable one piece suits, supportive and sturdy bikinis and a much wider selection of bra sizes. While there’s still work to be done, we are on the right track!
When it comes to bikinis specifically, one of the best things about bra sized swimwear is how easily you can mix and match your tops and bottoms to create your own unique look. So once you find the ideal top for your bust, you can effortlessly create new swimsuit styles with various bottoms. High-waisted, cheeky, full-coverage, thong – whatever your preference! And one more thing: feel free to really mix it up for the most versatility possible. Often times underwire bikini tops are going to be a bit more expensive than traditional bikini tops. One of the ways I like to counter the cost is by using a bottom that I already have in my closet. But in the same breath, there are times I can’t resist a good matching set moment.
When you find a good fit, try more with that brand! Whether that is different styles they offer, such as a sweetheart top vs a strapless, or just finding more patterns in the style you like. You can often times find old colors/patterns on sale, too. So don’t be afraid to have the same style top in multiple different looks.
Now – where exactly can you find bra sized swimsuits? Let’s get into it!
Bravissimo is a cheerleader for women with big boobs. They specifically focus on supporting and celebrating women that have D cups and up. From bodysuits to lingerie to swimwear, Bravissimo is ready to support fuller chest women in their day to day needs. They also offer virtual fittings which I really encourage you to do if you’re thinking about ordering big boob bra sized swimwear from Bravissimo! It’s so important you’re in the correct size when it comes to underwire swimsuit options. In case you end up with the wrong fit, Bravissimo does offer a 60 day free return window if something isn’t fitting right (before you do a return, you can also schedule a virtual fitting to go over what size you might need based on how your original swimsuit fit).
Bravissimo as a brand has over 25+ years of research and success with delivering top-quality pieces. They offer many perks and in-depth guides to different types of boobs and are all about empowering and supporting women to grow their confidence.
Beyond carrying their in-house bra sized swimsuit brand, you can also find brands like Curvy Kate, Elomi, Miss Mandalay and Panache on their website. If you live or are visiting NYC soon, they also have a store you can check out in person.
My Favorite Bravissimo Swimsuits
Every single one of us deserves well-made bikinis, tankinis and one piece swimsuits for large busts that make us feel good, and Bravissimo has plenty to choose from. A few of my personal one piece swimsuit favorites include the sexy bathing suit, Marbella, the wireless Santa Maria and the Cancun with hidden built in underwire under the swimsuit. When it comes to separates, there’s a vast assortment of bottoms that you can mix and match with different tops. I love the Amalfi Frill Bikini, Manhattan Bikini Top and the Palma Tankini Top.
I love the variety that online retailer, Bare Necessities, has to offer when it comes to bra sized swimsuits! Whether you’re someone with big boobs like me, or someone with a smaller cup size looking for the precise coverage and support, you can probably find it with a brand carried online at Bare Necessities. They focus on carrying high quality brands in a wide selection of sizes and styles. In addition to carrying a large variety of swimsuit brands, you can set up a virtual fitting with the Bare Necessities team to get find your proper size in various brands and you can shop for items like bras, activewear, underwear and more.
When it comes to fuller bust swim options, I would check out brands like Freya, Elomi and Fantasie. My favorite underwire bikinis are from Freya! I find that the cup sizes run a bit big, so I personally will order my normal band size and take a cup size down. The Plunge Bikini Top and Sweetheart Top are the styles I personally gravitate towards, but you can’t go wrong with any of the high quality swimsuit options. These brands also have one pieces and tankinis, so there’s truly something for everyone’s preferences.
If you’re a bit smaller in the chest, let’s say around a UK G cup, be sure to also check out Pour Moi, Sunsets and Birdsong. And for the gals around a C cup, add Becca and Bare to your list of brands that offer bra sized swimsuits.
With Bare Necessities’ relaxed return policy, you can feel free to order a few styles, sizes and color options and return what doesn’t work for you. If you don’t find your perfect fit in your first order, I would take advantage of the free virtual fittings to figure out what size you need based on what you ordered. You can return the item within 60 days for a full refund. If you slip up and forget and find it in your closet three months later (we’ve all been there!), you can still receive a voucher for your next purchase as long as your return within 120 days of purchase.
HerRoom is another great online retailer that carries a large variety of small and big boob bra sized swimwear, bras, lingerie and so much more. They’ve got a diverse selection of options, so whether you’re looking for something modest and neutral, bright and sassy, trendy and modern, or pieces to mix and match, you can find it all here.
My favorite big boob bra sized swimwear brands that can be found at HerRoom include Elomi, Curvy Kate, Freya and Fantasie. They also carry Chantelle, Panache and Pour Moi which are great options for fuller bust swimsuits.
If you’re looking for smaller cup sized swimsuits, check out Smart and Sexy, Marie Jo, Lise Charmel, Anita, Bleu Rod Beattie and Jantzen.
Keep an eye out for sales happening on HerRoom throughout the season. If you know your exact size in a style, also keep an eye out for discontinue styles that are on major sale. They are typically final sale, so not the time to test out different sizes of small or big boob bra sized swimwear! In general, the HerRoom return policy is to accept unworn items with tags still on within a 30 day window.
If you’re wanting to support local businesses that offer bra sized swimsuits, Petticoat Fair has locations in Plano, Texas and Austin, Texas. You can also order swimsuits online. The website has a search feature that allows you to sort bra sized swimsuits by AA-E cups, F-GG cups and H+ cups, which I find extremely helpful in navigating a site with a lot of options!
Some brands that you can expect to find as Petticoat Fair include Marie Jo, Empreinte, Audabe, Elomi, Panache, Curvy Kate and Freya.
If you’re not quite sure on sizing or styles for your breast shape and size, you can reach out to the Petticoat Fair team to narrow down some selections. And of course, if you’re in the Dallas or Austin area, you can shop in store. Because this is a small business, be sure you’re paying close attention to the return policy. Any bikinis, one pieces, cover-ups or other swim accessories you’re not thrilled about can be returned or exchanged within 15 days of purchase. However, this excludes sale items.
Seriously, what doesn’t Amazon carry these days? You can find lots of bra sized swimsuits ranging from older styles that are on sale, to new releases from trusted big boob bra sized swimwear brands. While it’s not the same for every swimsuit, you can also shop using Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy to find your perfect fit without the hassle of exchanges or a large credit card charge.
Some of my favorite bra sized swimsuit brands that you can find on Amazon include Elomi, Freya, Fantasie and Curvy Kate. I’m sure by now you’ve guessed that these are some of the best options when it comes to fuller bust bra sized swimsuits. You can also find Sunsets, Panache and Dorina.
While this post is all about bra sized swimwear, I did want to share some plus size swimsuits that I’ve found on Amazon that do offer a bit more coverage. You can find fit reviews on mid and plus size bikinis from Amazon, as well as mid and plus size one pieces from Amazon in the linked posts. You’ll see I had quite a few hard no’s that got exchanged for sizing, coverage, or style, or just completely returned to never see again. But, you will also see the ones that were a perfect fit. If there’s one thing I can promise you, it’s that I will always give an honest swimsuit review.
Bella Bra Shop
A woman-owned small business in Dallas? Yes, please! Small business owner, Nicolle, has over a decade of bra fitting experience and it’s evident from the moment you walk into the store. While Bella Bra is more of an in person shopping experience, you can also order online or call the store to place an order.
You can expect to find big boob bra sized swimwear brands like Free Spirit, Goddess and Curvy Kate.
This is another one of those brands with a slightly more strict return policy, so keep that in mind as you try different styles. To initiate a return, the item must be in perfect condition with tags still attached. You have 15 days to make a return from the time you receive your package.
Kitty and Vibe Swimwear
While these are not exact bra sized swimsuits, I couldn’t help but include Kitty and Vibe on this list of where to shop for bra sized swimsuits. They’re a relatively affordable, ethical and sustainable swimwear brand that has such a great selection of styles and fits. I know we’re talking about breasts here, but the way they do bikini bottoms is awesome! They are one of the first brands I have seen that has options for “more or less” booty coverage and offer sizes S-5X!
My personal favorites are the scoop bikini top and the plunge bikini top. The scoop bikini fits just like a sports bra and is seamless with adjustable straps. The plunge top has a tie band, adjustable straps and plenty of coverage for my chest despite it being a plunging neckline. There is no discomfort after wearing the Kitty and Vibe swimsuit all day.
They recently came out with a new sizing option for the ladies who still have a large cup size, but smaller band size. For cup sizes E, F, and G, shop the ‘Small Band’ range for band sizes 30-36, and the standard range for band sizes 38-44. Even better, if underwire isn’t your thing, they have plenty of supportive options without the underwire.
Kitty and Vibe prices range from $29-52 for separate pieces and discount code Casey15 will save you $15 on your purchase. Kitty and Vibe has a 30-day return policy.
Lilly and Lime Swimwear
If you’re looking for a small business swimsuit brand, be sure to check out Lilly and Lime. If you like more modest and traditional styles, or you simply appreciate the extra coverage, this brand is for you. Their sizing starts at a D cup (28D to 40HH) and bottoms run from size 4 to 18.
Their print styles are so fun to mix and match with their solid colors for a playful combination. Even more, you can find a large collection of rash guards and even cute cap-sleeve one piece swimsuits so you’re prepared for whatever summer adventure awaits you. If you don’t love your swimsuit, you can return for a full refund within 30 days.

Despite the rise in demand for bra sized swimsuits, there is still a long way to go in terms of inclusivity in the fashion industry. It’s important to remember that each body is different and beautiful in its own way. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to look or feel in swimwear. Embrace and celebrate your body for all that it is, and don’t let any insecurities hold you back from enjoying life to the fullest. Life is way too short to sit on the sidelines.
Whether you’re headed to the beach or enjoying a pool day, a bra sized swimsuit is a great way to feel confident and comfortable when it comes to your chest. Don’t be afraid to try different styles and brands until you find the perfect swimsuit to suit your needs.
I hope this post helps you figure out where to buy bra sized swimsuits and serves as a reminder that every body is beautiful.
