Choosing Supportive Swimwear for Big Busts

Supportive swimwear for large busts

For women with a bigger bust, shopping for swimwear can be frustrating and disappointing. Most mainstream brands are designed for smaller busts and simply don’t offer supportive options for larger cup sizes. Here at Curvy Swimwear, we understand the support and fit needs of our bigger busted ladies. We also acknowledge that while fit and support is paramount, so too is style and fashion. 

We want women of all shapes and sizes to have a positive experience shopping for swimwear online. To ensure this is the case, Curvy Swimwear offers a variety of styles and fit options so you can easily find a stylish swimsuit that looks and feels fantastic. You'll be spoilt for choice with our collection of supportive swimwear for larger cup sizes. Shop with confidence for swimwear that fits and supports B to G cups from size 10 to 30.

You don't have to sacrifice style for support with our swimwear for big busts

At Curvy Swimwear we offer big bust swimwear to ensure maximum bust support and fabulous, fashionable design. There's no need to sacrifice style for comfort with our exceptional range of swimwear for big busts.

Whether you choose to rock that bikini or you want a little more coverage offered by a one piece, we have a large bust swimwear solution for you. Read on to discover just how many different styles are on offer for you to choose from.

Here's a breakdown of big bust swimsuit styles you need to keep an eye out for.


If you have a larger bust, you'll know how important straps are. Straps on a bra or swimsuit are doing most of the work by supporting your bust. Choosing a swimsuit style that comfortably and effectively holds up your bust is essential.

Thinner straps don’t provide the support needed for larger cup sizes. They dig in to your shoulders, creating red marks and won’t give the lift you need. The weight of a larger bust puts strain on the straps, which can result in damage to your swimsuit.

At Curvy Swimwear, we ensure our large bust swimwear has straps that can support you comfortably and effectively. The wider straps on our swimsuits distribute the weight from a larger bust more evenly, preventing them from digging in. They also provide more support and comfort for your fuller bust.

Panels and underwire reinforce the structure of the bra cups and offer a lift for the bust. Adjustable straps allow you to customise your fit to achieve the ultimate bust support. You can even choose to criss cross your straps with many of our styles for even greater support and bust lift.

A swimsuit with a higher neck is an excellent choice if you prefer to cover up. A zip front one piece allows you to cover up completely or show a little skin. Both options are great for dressing a large bust.    

Having the option to create a V neckline with the zip, minimises the size of the bust. If you have a bigger bust, you'll know how flattering a V neckline can be for dressing your curves. Showing off just a hint of skin creates an optical illusion so your bust appears smaller. Be as daring or demure as you like by positioning the zip where you feel most fabulous.

Keyhole necklines add an alluring touch while maintaining coverage, giving that glimpse of skin but keeping the overall lengthened look. Look for new keyhole styles from Capriosca Swimwear and Jantzen dropping later this year. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about new styles.

If your preference is for coverage, a high neck swimsuit is ideal for you. These swimsuits feature a shelf bra, paneling, and generous cuts to keep you covered and supported. You'll feel amazing once you zip yourself into a high neck one piece.

Halter tops are fantastic if you’re after comfortable support. The ties allow you to adjust the size so you get the exact fit you want. A halter tie top is a flattering style on every body shape and bust size.

Halter styles minimise a larger bust by narrowing the width at the top of the breasts. The minimal size of a triangle bikini top may not look supportive, but these classic styles offer a fully customisable fit to give lift and support for all cup sizes. 

Pair them with a cheeky cut pant for maximum exposure or balance a skimpy top half with a full coverage bottom. A high waist pant or cute skater swim skirt adds a retro feel to your halter bikini top with stylish coverage.

This bikini/one piece hybrid is a longtime favourite with our Curvy Swimwear customers and for good reason. It’s flattering on a wide range of body types and the slimming fit of the tankini top balances out a larger bustline. Our tankini tops come in several style options such as the 3 tier frill, underwire, and V neck styles.

Our tankini tops feature supportive designs such as built-in shelf bras, moulded cups, and underwire. Mastectomy pouches and adjustable/removable straps allow you to further customise your fit and support.  If you prefer to cover your bust, a tankini top with frill details. A large ruffle will skim over your curves, keeping your bust hidden in style.

Pair our supportive tankini tops with a comfortable high waisted pant for the ultimate summer swimsuit. Choose your desired pant length from our collection of bikini bottoms. Go for mid rise, boyleg, bike pant, or 3/4 legging length and feel confident in your tankini swim set.

Lingerie style swimwear with added underwire are ideal for our larger chested customers, giving you a beautiful look with a fit that will keep you comfortable all day. 

An underwire works with adjustable straps to provide lift and support for your fuller bust. Your silhouette is enhanced as the underwire lifts the bust up and away from the waistline, showing off your gorgeous curves with comfort and support. 

Our bikini and bandeau tops are available in a number of fun and flirty prints with matching bottoms available to create the perfect set. Shop by your bra size with a variety of cup size fittings. Pair your underwire bikini top with your preferred pant style so you can look and feel fabulous at the beach or pool.

Having a larger bust doesn’t have to mean sacrificing a fun swimsuit, it’s knowing where to find it. Don’t settle for a suit that isn’t giving you the support you need or makes you feel anything less than amazing. You deserve to look and feel amazing in your swimwear, so you can feel confident.
