Popular Swimwear for a Bigger Bust

Finding the perfect swimsuit can be an incredibly difficult task, and it’s even more challenging when you have a larger bust. Luckily, here at Capriosca Swimwear, we have a range of options for women looking for bigger bust swimwear and our swimsuits are especially designed to support busts up to a G Cup.

Things to remember when looking for big bust swimwear:

  • Look for cup sized swimwear or filter swimwear by your cup size
  • Swimsuits with thick, adjustable straps will provide extra support 
  • Pay attention to the pattern and colour - if you’re wanting to minimise your bust, plain or dark colours can have a slimming effect. Bright colours will highlight your features, wearing a bright coloured top will draw attention towards your bust.

Here are some of our favourite styles for bigger busts:

Underwire

Underwire swimwear is easily the most popular feature to include in bigger bust swimwear because the underwire is designed to provide security, as well as lift and shape the bust. 

Underwire one pieces are our speciality here at Capriosca Swimwear. They have great support with the option of a DD/E or F/G cup with adjustable straps that can be altered to make the bust more secure. A customer favourite is our Honey Comb Collection, available in black, navy, plum and turquoise. The style features ruching along the bust to provide more stretch for an ultra comfortable fit as well as an empire waist style band for extra support.

Our underwire bikini tops are similar to a contour bra with softly padded, moulded and structured cups that can fit up to DD/E & F/G cup sizes comfortably. Underneath the bust features a wide band to provide a little extra support and security.

Our underwire tankini tops are one of the most supportive and practical swimsuits we have. Like our underwire bikini tops we offer tankinis with specific cup sizing. They include features like adjustable straps, a flattering v-neckline, ruching and thick straps.

Shelf bra

Shelf bras are an incredibly comfortable option if you’re looking for supportive bigger bust swimsuits. A shelf bra is a built-in bra inserted into the fabric of a swimsuit to provide extra bust support and security.

Our most popular shelf bra swimsuit would be the 3 Tier One Pieces and 3 Tier TankinisThey’re a great option if you’re looking to minimise the appearance of your bust, as the layering effect of the tiers work to accentuate and shape the curves of your entire body. They all feature v-necklines, adjustable and removable straps, moulded cups to help lift and shape your bust while offering comfortable support and security. Our 3 Tier One Pieces and Tankini Tops are also a popular option for a G cup bust.

Swim Dresses

Swim dresses are a fantastic option if you’re looking for bigger bust swimwear; they all feature either a shelf bra and moulded cups or underwire. Our underwire swim dresses fit a DD/E bust and offer excellent support and comfort for the bust with the underwire bra and adjustable straps. An empire waist accentuates your bust and highlights your curves creating a gorgeous silhouette.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
