21 Full Bust Swimsuits and Where to Buy

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

Anyone with boobs knows how frustrating it can be to shop for swimwear—even more so if you’re looking for full bust swimsuits.

Extra coverage isn’t the only issue. It’s about finding a style that you like on your body. Some people need more support or lift. And in my case, I’m looking for something that works for me at my age, too. With all these factors to consider, it’s no wonder that studies show that shopping for a swimsuit is a depressing and demoralizing task. Even thinking about putting on a swimsuit can make some women feel anxious and depressed. Yikes.

Having zero options to try in your size is one way to up the frustration factor in the dressing room. Up until a few years ago, it was hard to find a broad range of plus or full bust swimsuits in local department stores. But now, thanks to the Internet, swimwear is available from anywhere in the world.

The following list of places to shop for full bust swimsuits includes both narrower and wider bands. If your needs run to smaller backs with deep cups, you’re probably familiar with bra brands that make swimwear in those sizes. You’ll find even more offerings on individual brand websites. For others, your curves might fit better into plus size swim lines. It all depends on your frame (either height or state of mind).

Hopefully, there’s a little something in this post for everyone—and no one will feel like their boobs keep them off the beach this summer.
