23 Bikinis For Bigger Busts to Keep You Supported All Summer Long

Sponsored by What's this?

If the recent NYC humidity has taught us anything it’s that summer is on the horizon. As we get ready for long days at the beach, backyard barbecues, bottomless brunch, and vacations, it might be a good idea to get a new bathing suit. And regardless of what activity you plan to get up to, a well-fitted suit will prepare you for it all. 

Unfortunately, shopping for a bathing suit comes with its own frustrations when we’re forced into exclusive sizing that doesn't always encompass all bodies. A large percentage of bikinis out there don’t take into account large busts and back sizes—often stopping at cup D or XL. So what do you do if you don’t fall into these narrow categories and need something that is functional with good support, while not compromising on fashion? For a long time fashion couldn’t answer this question, but with more and more consumers seeking bikinis for bigger cup sizes, the industry is being forced to relook at outdated sizing and ideals.

Fortunately, brands like H&M, Aerie, Girlfriend Collective, and ASOS have been creating swimwear in inclusive sizing since their onset. They have items that can fit cups A-J and all the doubles in between. And as cute as matching sets can be, these brands also provide mix and match for those of us that have different sizing on the top and bottom.

From asymmetric tops to high-performance underwire, Byrdie shares the brands that proudly make comfortable and confident collections for the full-chested community. Cheers to a nip-slip and shoulder-digging free summer.
