Okay being a fuller bust gal you've either experienced one of two things. Firstly the bikini is either completely not fit for purpose and does not provide any kind of support WHAT SO EVER or alternatively it provides support but it is either ugly or plain looking. Well we feel ya.
In this mini guide we will be providing you with some options to bring some life back into your bikini wardrobe and most importantly give you some suggestions on which tops will flatter a larger bust. Take note !
Halter Neck Triangle Top
A slight variation on the classic triangle bikini. Thicker straps will provide you with sturdy support. Having adjustable straps both around the neck and back make it the perfect bikini top for those with a fuller bust and a small waist which typically can be difficult to shop for.
Ensure your bikini top comes with removable padding so you have the option as to whether or not you want to add an extra layer of protection for the nips. If your bikini is light in colour it is common to see an outline of the nipple area, therefore having padding can reduce this effect and prevent this situation from arising.
This bikini top is great for showing a little on trend 'under boob' too!
Halter Neck Waist Band Top
If you are seeking as much coverage and support as possible then a bikini top which features a under bust band should be at the top of your bikini wish list. Similarly with the halter neck triangle bikini, ensure your waist band bikini top has adjustable neck and back straps for as much flexibility as poss.
The under bust band on the bikini top will keep the babies in place and prevent any sagging. You can tie the neck straps tighter to hoick up the bust and tighten the under bust band to cinch in the waist a little!
Try a vibrant print to deterr from the bust area and jazz up your summer holiday wadrobe.
For cup sizes up to DD/E
An underwire bra style bikini top has structure and support built into the bust area. Being a structured bikini top it is very sturdy and stays put. Having said that, cup sizes tend to come up slightly smaller with more minimal coverage than a halter neck bikini top. So if you prefer more coverage this might not be your die hard bikini top, in this scenario stick with a halter neck.
The beauty about these types of bikini tops is that the straps and underwire can naturally provide additional lift (if this is your quest for a perkier bust!). On your bikini checklist make sure your bikini top has adjustable straps, a sturdy clasp and removable padding to get top notch quality.
