Stylish Swimwear for a Smaller Bust

Having a smaller bust can make swimsuit shopping a challenge, especially if you’re a small-chested, plus size woman. It can be hard to find a swimsuit that accentuates your curves while flattering and supporting your bust.

Things to remember when looking for small bust swimwear:

  • If you’re smaller on your top half, separates will be your best option
  • Look for swimwear that have customisable features, like a tie fastening, a multi-hook fastening or adjustable straps
  • If you’re wanting to highlight or add volume to your bust, look for swimwear that has bright colours, ruffles or frills or detailing at the top

Take a long at some of our favourite swimsuits for smaller busts:

Bandeau Tankini

Bandeau style swimwear is one of the most flattering styles for curvy women with smaller busts. Our bandeau tankinis have a straight across neckline with ruching to create definition at the bust. They also have a flouncy and flowy style that highlights your bust as well as your waist. The bust features a built-in shelf bra with moulded cups for a comfortable fit that provides support and security. Light padding is also included in the bandeau tankinis to enhance the natural shape of your bust.

Our bandeau tankinis also have the added bonus of removable straps, allowing you to make the tops strapless. The strapless style will also help to define and highlight your bust!

Be sure to check out our full range of bandeau style tankinis and one pieces.

Frill Sleeve One Piece

Our frill sleeve one pieces are easily one of our most popular styles, and it’s a great style for women with a smaller bust. They’re great sporty style swimwear, with the rounded neckline for modest coverage but the zipper allows you to decide just how much coverage you’d like. 

The bust of our frill sleeve one pieces include a shelf-bra and soft moulded cups for added support and comfort. These swimsuits have a more structured top than others, meaning they will suit and mould to whatever size bust you already have!

Scoop One Piece

Our scoop one pieces are classic style swimsuits, perfect for curvy women with smaller busts. One of its many features is ruching that helps to accentuate your natural curves creating a more fitted and slimming look. They also include underwire cups and thick, adjustable straps that can be customised to fit your body perfectly. These features help to not only support and shape your bust but also enhance and add volume to it.

These gorgeous swimsuits are available in classic black,  navy and white dots and the gorgeous cherry blossom print!

Wrap Crop Top

Our wrap bikini top is designed for women wanting an alternative to regular bikini styles. The top has moulded cups and removable pads to naturally shape and lift your bust. The v-neckline will highlight your bust, creating the illusion of a slim and longer looking torso.

The best feature of our wrap bikini tops though are the ties. They’re incredibly versatile, allowing you to style the top to suit your bust size and body’s curves. If you’re wanting extra bust support, you can wrap the ties around the front or around the back for a tighter fit.
