Thick straps

Instead of flimsy string bikinis, look for swimsuits with thick straps that will provide you with the support you need. Pieces with multiple straps also work.

The perfect fit is key when it comes to swimwear for busty girls. Look out for tops with adjustable shoulder straps, or adjustable detailing along the back that you can customise to your size and shape.

It’s really all about support, and nothing can give you the lift you need as much as underwire. When shopping, opt for pieces with underwiring for an additional boost and to-die-for cleavage.

One pieces

One piece swimsuits are great for busty girls because they hold everything in place and cover up much more so you don’t have to worry about body parts moving around. If you want the security of a one piece without looking too conservative, choose designs with unexpected details like a really low-cut back, cut-outs and all-over prints.

If you still love your string bikinis or bandeaus, pick one that has a wider band. This provides greater support and has a really sexy corset-vibe.

Now that it’s (hella) hot outside, it’s time to head to the beach for a tan and jump in the water!

For petite girls, it’s not much of a problem finding a swimsuit (or 10) for some fun under the sun. Swimsuit-searching for busty girls, on the other hand, is a much more tricky issue. Most swimsuits don’t provide the correct fit or support that you need, so every move is a risk that a boob might pop out.

Fret not — click through above for a definitive guide to what you need to look out for while swimwear-shopping, and the best pieces to buy now.
