I love swimsuits: I own a gratuitous number of them in just about every style and pattern, and I get a lot of joy out of experimenting with different textures, cuts, and swim trends. However, my D-cup breasts do not always cooperate with my love for this notoriously skimpy corner of the fashion world, and many of my favorite swim tops end up relegated to the back of a drawer, only ever seeing the light of day when I'm tanning in solitude in my backyard. I'm a Leo, however, and love to wear my cute clothes proudly in public, so it's become my mission to track down the all-time best swimsuits for big busts.
After all, the last thing I want to do when I'm out and about is worry about whether everyone in sight is about to get a glimpse of a nipple. I'm tired of feeling too self-conscious to swim or play beach sports, and I'm definitely over looking down and realizing one of my breasts has gone rogue. If you feel the way I feel, check out some of my favorite swimsuits for big busts, so that you can spend less time worrying about public indecency and more time having fun.
Andie Swim is widely beloved for their soft, high-quality material, and I'm personally partial to bikinis like this one. Its fun pattern and flirtatious detailing down the middle make it perfect for a day at the beach with friends, while its thick straps ensure that a rogue breast isn't going to pop out during a game of beach volleyball.
I absolutely love this set. The top's straight neckline will keep your bust securely in place, and the gold clasp detailing gives it a sexy edge.
As a lover of all things psychedelic, I'm a huge fan of this groovy getup, with its subtle peek-a-boo plunge and its full coverage cups.
Balconette cups like this one are amazing for busty women who want to show off their assets without flashing everyone at the function.
This one piece by Lokiki lets you enjoy both the sexiness of a plunging suit and the security of a no-budge piece. This swimwear brand's smooth, seamless swimsuits are also excellent if you (like me) struggle with irritation around your bikini line after hair removal.
Everyone needs a good multiway swimsuit, but such tops are often too skimpy for women with large busts or nipples. This number from Ivy Swimwear, however, is made of thick fabric and provides full coverage, so you can wear it however you'd like without ever having to worry about it slipping.
Bondi Born's site has an entire section devoted to women with large busts, so you can rest assured that when you wear something like this retro piece, you'll be able to frolic around the beach, sans anxiety.
I'm a big fan of Deta Knits for many reasons: Its sustainable, ethical means of production, its incomparable comfort, its effortlessly sexy fit, and, of course, its size inclusivity.
This blush pink number from J. Crew truly took athletic and made it chic.
This full-coverage one piece mimics the look of a wrap dress and cinches the waist with a chic belt. Don it during a dip in the pool, and then throw a pair of shorts over it to go to lunch.
This melon-patterned top is both adorable and sure to keep your melons safely tucked away.
Celeb-favorite brand Dippin Daisy's has a section (opens in new tab) devoted to DD+ sized breasts, and its filled with fun patterns and cuts that'll have heads turning the minute you pull off your coverup.
I love the thick straps (they're basically sleeves) on this one piece―it's perfect for romping around and swimming in the ocean, and it can even double as a bodysuit.
Curvy girls so rarely get to wear daring styles, so I'm eternally grateful to Léa the Label for releasing this elegant, no-budge swim top, which comes in a variety of flattering colors.
