9 Cute Swimsuits for Big Busts Because We Can't All Wear Triangle Bikini Tops

Having big boobs is both a blessing and a curse. Us chesty ladies might rival Kate Upton in a dress, but actually finding the perfect dress is not a task for the faint of heart. Swimsuit shopping is a challenge no matter what your body type (okay, so it's probably not a challenge for Gisele), but add some substantial boobage to the mix and you have all the ingredients for a classic dressing room meltdown.

Relax, I'm here to help. I've rounded up the best bathing suits for large-breasted women, complete with supportive underwires and (actually cute) patterns and silhouettes. You won't find any skimpy, useless triangle bikini tops here!
