The Most Flattering Swimsuit Style for Girls With Big Busts

With swimsuit season come beachy waves, sunscreen-slathered limbs, and rosé-fuelled afternoons but also the dilemma of finding the perfect bikini to wear. And girls with big busts have a special set of challenges—some styles just aren’t designed with large-chested women in mind.

In spite of this challenge, we wanted to find out the best bathing suits for big busts, so we asked Maria Dobrzanska Reeves, the swimsuit designer behind Marysia, to share her expert tips. She filled us in on the style that is most flattering on curvier girls: “Halters and sports bra–like styles are the best. They provide the lift and support you need.” And since these styles are offered each season in cool colours and fabrics, we rounded up our favourite pieces to snap up now.
