17 Bikini Tops For Big Busts That Will Actually Fit — PHOTOS

Finding the perfect bikini top is much like finding the perfect bra: The search can seem endless, and not all tops are created equal. But to take the confusion out of finding your best match, it’s important to remember that the first step to finding your best bikini top is actually getting your measurements. 

With online shopping making thousands of gorgeous suits just a click away, it's easy to just buy willy nilly and deal with a bikini that's "close enough" to a fit. However, it’s always good to use your waist, bust and hip measurements as a point of reference before you start to shop. But while these measurements definitely are a good indicator of a good bathing suit fit, finding your best style of bikini top requires you to pay closer attention to your bust size, as bigger busted ladies may want to stick to suits that offer more support.

“Bigger chested girls should always look for structured bikinis that offer underwire support,” says Candice Galek, CEO and founder of BikiniLuxe.com through email. “Your shoulders should not feel uncomfortably hunched forward, and your cups should offer a good amount of coverage and support.”

If you're looking for a suit that offers the support of a full coverage bra, these 17 options are excellent choices.
