Raise your hand if you struggle to find a swimsuit you feel confident in. While you're at it, when you raise your hand, do your boobs fall out of your bathing suit top? Because the struggle is real. And are your boobs smashed and spilling out like a hot mess? Or maybe you’ve found a bathing suit or two that support the girls, but the rest of the suit is too loose everywhere else and looks like a baggy mess. If you're in one of these situations, you’re not alone. But that’s okay because we’re about to open your eyes to the world of cup-sized swimwear. Band and cup specific swimsuits will completely change how you think about bathing suits if your cup runneth over!
Bra-Sized Swim: Why it Matters
Like a perfectly fitted bra, bra-sized swimwear uses your band and cup size combination to create lift and support the breasts so they sit up higher on your torso. Your lifted bustline creates an hourglass look, elongating your waist in a lengthy, elegant way that we promise you will love.
Not only will your girls look better in a bra-sized swimsuit, they’ll also be locked and loaded so you can focus on having more fun in the sun. And no, it won’t look like you’re wearing a bra on the beach because bra-sized swimwear has evolved and it's now cute and trendy – but with secret inside support! Sexy plunges, strapless bandeaus, full coverage bathing suits, and everything in between. Bra-sized bikini tops, tankinis, and 1 piece swimsuits that are the perfect band and cup combination will fit your breasts and ribcage as if they were custom made, making you look and feel confident!
Where Can You Shop for Bra-sized Swimwear?
Swimsuit shopping can be hard no matter your shape and size, but it's especially difficult for the busty among us. Getting the support you need can be a real struggle when shopping at department stores and even specialty swim shops. Cup-sized swim is not generally carried at these stores, which tend to carry alpha (S, M, L) and dress size (6, 8, 10, 12) swimsuits. These choices can be a good fit for women with small to average sized breasts but can be a real disappointment for women with bigger boobs, whether their ribcages are a petite 30 band or a curvy 42. So if you're lucky enough to have one in your area, head to your local bra fitting boutique, where you will find bra-sized swim in a vast array of styles.
If you can’t find a local boutique that carries bra-sized swimwear, you can always shop online at www.thebragenie.com for a large assortment of stylish and supportive swimsuits, year-round. Our fitters are only a phone call away and ready to help you find your perfect new swimsuit.
