Without much ado, here are my top 5 swimsuits for top heavy women
Women with large breasts really need proper support. Bikinis are fine once the top has the proper underwire support to keep the bust lifted. This full coverage bikini from Victoria Secret is a winner.
Asymmetrical one piece
If you are a busty woman with broader shoulders than your hips, you’re going to want a swimsuit that visually narrows your top half so it balances out your lower half. This one shoulder is excellent because the asymmetrical shoulder is very supportive, the ruching at the waist is very figure enhancing and the print is very alluring. Go for it! Available at Victoria’s Secret.
Deep plunge one piece
With one pieces, you absolutely want to look at a deep V neck or wide U scoop necklines which enhance your bust. To avoid? Little itsy bitsy tops or stringy halters that look at odds with your proportion and provide zero support. Also any top that adds bulk to your breasts. This bathing suit, from Miracle Suit hits all the right marks. Figure flattering to your décolletage, side ruching to enhance your waist and great support at the bustline. Available @ Bloomingdales.
This halter swimdress is great for a top heavy woman with wide shoulders and narrow hips. The halter top provides support for the girls while the ruffle skirt adds balance to your wider top. Plus it’s so darn cute! Plus if you have a hint of a tummy all the ruching in the middle will cinch you in comfortably. Suit from Juicy Couture @ Bloomingdales.
I love this tankini for a top heavy woman with broad shoulders. The suits neckline highlights the shoulders while the neck wrap tempers them at the same time. The top can also be wrapped in multiple ways depending on your style preferences. It’s a two piece tankini so you have complete coverage with the flexibility of a two piece. And the print is a great camoflager (if needed). Available @ Shape FX.
