Bikini Tops For Small Busts SS21

Having a small bust can certainly give you more options when searching for your perfect bikini. Support may not be the main focus but perhaps you are looking for a top to give a little more oomph to your chest.

We have compiled a list of bikini top picks that suit small busts and can help you in your quest for body confidence on the beach to rock what mother nature gave 'ya.


The classic triangle bikini top has been worn by many celebs with a more modest bust size. The likes of Hailey Bieber, Kate Moss & Kylie Jenner are always rocking a teeny bikini showing off their smaller boobs in this staple bikini.

Find a triangle bikini which has removable padding so that you have the option to add a little extra volume to the bust area, should you want it!

The other great thing about triangle style bikini tops is that they make for the most versatile multi-ways giving you well over 10 different bikini top styles. See our blog about ways to tie your triangle bikini top HERE

Bra Underwire Style

If you are seeking some lift and additional cleavage then a bra style bikini top might just be the one for you.

Bra underwire bikini tops tend to provide a push up effect letting the babies sit a little higher and more perk. What more do we want?!

Find a bra bikini top with adjustable straps so you can get the exact lift you need to suit your frame. In addition to adjustable straps it is worthwhile investing in a bikini with extra padding that you can remove which should provide even more lift!

Tie Front 

An adjustable front tie bikini top can really pull the babies together and create the cleavage of envy. Not to mention these chic tops can double us as a day time top paired with your favourite summer denim shorts to wander round those cute cobbled streets whilst on holiday.

A pretty front bow detailing makes this swimwear piece ever so flattering and girly. Wear it 2 ways by tying the string behind the back.

As with the underwire style make sure your bikini top has adjustable straps to keep everything hoicked up.

A bandeau bikini is every sunbathers dream. If you are after less tan lines than your option to wear a strapless bikini top is at your finger tips.

Whilst strapless styles do not provide as much support having a smaller bust allows you to wear this style with ease. Ensure your strapless bikini has a sturdy metal clasp so it prevents rolling of the bikini top. We'd also recommend a bandeau bikini top with removable padding so the area doesn't look so flat and gives you subtle shape.
