Large Bust Swimwear Picks 2017!
This isn't my first large bust swimwear page. A couple years ago I
wrote a page with 7 Tips about what to look for when shopping for a big
bust swimming suit.
You can read all the tips on my big bust swimming suits page. (I mostly talk about 1 piece swimming suits on that page.)
There are several new swimming suit picks on that page (I updated it the middle of March 2014). Actually come to think of it you'll find one piece swimming suits on that page and tankinis on this page. So if you prefer a one piece click over to my other page.
You're probably wondering how I determined which swimming suits to recommend. Here's how I choose.
- 1st - The suit must have a built-in underwire bra- Not a shelf bra, or a ridiculious foam bra - an actual underwire bra that the swimsuit is built around.There is one exception I found. The Freya Active Sport Tankini. It has a soft cup bra but offers great support. I know, because I reviewed it.
- 2nd - Reviews from other women - preferrably women who give their bra sizes so I know if other big busted women like the suit or not.
- 3rd - Cost - If you're like me you have a hard time shelling
out 80 bucks for a suit (or half a suit!) I don't know why large bust
swimwear is so darn expensive, but it is. However, once you find a great
swimsuit with a supportive bra you'll be willing to pay the extra 40 or
50 bucks (but we don't have to like it!)

FYI: All of the suits on this page can be found at herroom.com. If you decide you love one and buy it from herroom I'll receive a small commission.
I did a whole ginormous review on this suit. You can find it here, but if you don't feel like reading and you just want to take my word for how awesome this suit is you can check it out at herroom.com.
It's a little tricky to get the sizing right. I recommend going up a cup size and possibly going down a band size. For example, my normal size was a 34E and I ended up needing a 32F. So don't be afraid to play around with the sizing a little bit until you get the fit right. It's totally worth it.
It's got a nice underwire bra and I like the halter top style. (No more miles of cleavage!) The print is fun and overall just a nice looking suit.
I've also ordered 2 more swimsuits to review this season, but they are currently on backorder :( so I'm waiting impatiently for them to arrive.
When they finally come I promise full reviews on both, but until then here's a sneak peek of which ones I ordered...........
This one has a Shelf Bra
This one has an underwire bra
This swimsuit has a shelf bra. (I know! I know! Those are curse words on BBS!) However, I was intrigue because you still order this suit according to your bra size. What's up with that?
Here's the kicker! Anita also carries an underwire version of this suit. Soooooo, I ordered them both so I could compare them side by side! Hopefully you'll be able to see the HUGE difference a good bra makes in how you look in a swimsuit. I'm so excited for this. Watch for this review sometime in the next 3 weeks.
If you can't wait that long and need to buy a suit today here's a hint....order the underwire one if you're bigger than a C cup. You can check out the underwire version from herrom by clicking here.
This is the other suit I ordered....
This is another Freya suit that caught my eye. I love the cut out fabric, hopefully it will be body friendly. I'm pretty sure I ordered the wrong size (a 34E), just judging from how the Freya Tropicool suit fit me. I should have ordered a 32F. So I'll probably have to exchange it. If you order this suit, try ordering a cup size bigger.
It a little bit on the pricey side it's listed for $125 at herroom. Check it out.
Okay, this suit is for active ladies! It says so in the name. Therefore, it's got more coverage. If you're looking to show some skin while sunnin' by the pool, scroll past this one. However, if you're running, jumping, and playing on the beach this one will keep you contained and covered.
This tankini DOES NOT have an underwire bra. However, it does have a softcup bra and it holds you in tight! Also you'll notice from the picture below that it has a bralike clasp in the back which is a good indication that this is a supportive swimming suit.
You can purchase the boy shorts separately.(Pet Peeve of mine, if they're going to charge you 80 bucks for a suit why can't they throw in the shorts for free)

This is a new suit from Panache. I really like the navy color, but they also have it in a pinky purpley color and a deeper purple with yellow flowers. You can see from the picture above that it comes with a real bra. The cups are lined with a clear plastic that acts as an underwire.

The back of this tankini is different and I like it. I like the diamond cut-out. I also like the side-shaping seam. It's a little boring in the black. I wish it came in a print or maybe a metallic fabric. It is also slightly cheaper than the other tank.
Did I mention that I really like the back?
