Fuller Bust Swimwear - Finding Your Fit For Summer

Fuller Bust Swimwear - Finding Your Fit For Summer

Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start thinking about swimwear. For a fuller bust, finding the right swimwear can be a real challenge. Not only do you want something that is comfortable and flattering, but you also want a suit that provides the necessary support. We’ve put together all of our top tips for finding your perfect swimsuit or bikini.

Finding A Comfortable & Flattering Fit

Finding swimwear that fits well is essential for a comfortable and confident day at the beach or pool. No one wants to constantly adjust their swimsuit or feel self-conscious about their appearance. This is especially true for those with a fuller bust, who need the right level of support to avoid discomfort and potential wardrobe malfunctions.

Measure Yourself

Of course, it's essential to know your correct bra size. Swimwear is sized differently than regular clothing, and you may need to go up or down a size depending on the style, cup shape and brand. To measure yourself for swimwear, follow these steps:

  1. Wear a non-padded bra that fits well.
  2. Use a soft measuring tape to measure around the fullest part of your bust.
  3. Measure around your rib cage just below your bust.
  4. Use these measurements to determine your correct bra size.

Tips For Accurate Measuring Of Fuller Bust Swimwear

  • Measure yourself while standing up straight with your arms at your sides
  • Have someone else help you to ensure accurate measurements
  • Measure yourself every six months, as weight fluctuations can affect your size

Pay Attention To Straps On Swimwear

Check The Underwire

Many of our swimwear pieces feature underwire support. This means your swimsuit will provide the necessary lift and support, for you to not only feel comfortable but also secure.
