Warmer weather is here, which means it’s time for swimsuits!
While full-bust swimsuits always lag behind the full-bust lingerie world in terms of unique design options, it’s exciting to see how far things have come. There’s something for everyone here, whether you’re looking for a fun holiday suit, a genuinely supportive lap swimming option or just want to make a major fashion statement.
Kissimmee by Elomi:
I’ve always loved the support and comfort of Elomi full-bust swimsuits but lamented that their designs weren’t fashionable enough. Years ago you’d have to buy a “swim bra” to go under a tankini and brief set that resembled something your grandmother would wear at a retirement community in Florida. Thankfully, Elomi has stepped up and transformed their swimwear into something both functional and fashionable. I love the James Bond-esque look of the fire engine red crochet swimwear set, as well as the multiple options for customers who want varying levels of coverage. If I were headed out on vacation, I’d be tucking this into my suitcase in a heartbeat.
Fly Free by Elomi:
This 70’s inspired safari print swimwear collection is unexpectedly perfect, and one of the best prints that I’ve seen in plus sizes, ever. If that wasn’t enough, the bandeau top contains the structure of an Elomi strapless bra! If you want more coverage, they also offer a standard plunge bra style top, a tankini and a one piece swimsuit.
ASOS FULLER BUST Exclusive Ombre Print Mermaid Tie Bikini Top DD-G:
Ever envied those fantasy inspired string bikinis on the beach? ASOS has stepped up to fill in some gaps in the full-bust market, starting with mermaids! This swimsuit may not be up there in terms of support, but it’s one of the most stylish beach options this season. Bonus points if you combine it with the new pearl hair trend!
Color Block One Piece Swimsuit by Torrid:
Torrid swimsuits have become wildly popular for full-figured women for one good reason: they’re thinking beyond where most brands are. This swimsuit is not only stylish but has a built-in push-up bra and convertible straps. This means that one suit can go from regular straps to crossed straps, or transformed into a strapless one piece! If you’re looking for a suit that is stylish and can change with your mood, try this one.
Swan Print Twist Front Bikini Top by Torrid:
Everyone needs a cute suit for all occasions! This swan print bikini has an adorable print and a fun cut-out back. As with all Torrid suits, you can wear the straps in multiple ways. I love the slightly retro look that this suit has, while still retaining a modern sense of fun.
Peek & Beau Scallop Gingham Bustier Bikini:
I’ve never met a gingham anything that I didn’t love, so obviously, this pink gingham bikini has my heart. It would even be a cute retro picnic top with a high-waisted skirt! This suit can easily go from beach to brunch, making your vacation packing simple and stress-free.
Peru Fringe Skirt Swimsuit by Monif C:
If you ever wanted to feel like a flapper at the beach, Monif C has made your dreams come true! This bold orange fringed suit takes the swim dress to a whole new level. It would look great with sandals and some big gold jewelry poolside as well.
Maldives Plunge Bikini in Navy Print by Bravissimo:
Many full-bust swimsuits stop at a G cup still, so it’s great to see Bravissimo is offering lots of great options up to a K cup. This navy print bikini is basic and timeless, but not at all boring. It’s easy to picture it on the beach in Greece with a lovely linen dress over it.
Peek & Beau Applique Plunge Swimsuit B-F Cup:
Peak & Beau is a Playful Promises lingerie line that has expanded into swimwear, so it’s great to see them on major sites like ASOS. This blue and beige swimsuit is sexy, unexpected, and unique in the full-bust world.
Star Island Swimsuit by Monif C:
This statement making swimsuit is still available in black and white---and makes a statement in either color! I love the flowing sleeves and cut-out look, as well as the unapologetically low-cut front. Feel great, show off your curves and make a splash in this!
Bermuda Stripe Underwired Bandeau Halter Tummy Control Swimsuit:
Figleaves has been quietly putting out amazing full-busted lingerie and swimwear for a while now, so if you haven’t ever checked out their selection, you should. I love the funky stripe and floral print combination on this suit, as well as the unique halter top style.
What do you think of these full-bust swimsuits? What are you going to be wearing to the beach this summer?
