28 Swimsuits For Big Busts That Are Stylish & Supportive


As excited as we are that beach season is here, it doesn’t come without its challenges — namely, finding that perfect swimsuit for lounging by the sea. This can be an especially tiresome process when you’re working with D+ assets. Finding support, comfort, and style can be easier said than done, so we’re here to help.

In need of more than a mere triangle bikini top, there are specific features in swimsuits for big busts to look out for. These include thick or adjustable straps, underwire or molded cups, and longline cuts or extra back support. Mix-and-match options where your top is allowed to be larger than your bottoms if needed, and bra-size options are also great for finding the perfect fit. And this can all be found in a mix of styles from bikinis to one-piece swimsuits.

Read on to find some of the best swimsuits for big busts in a range of straight and plus sizes that don’t skimp on style and solve the peskiest of swim problems.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
