The perfect bikini top can be hard to find. One size doesn’t usually fit all, and everyone has a unique body. But no need to worry—we’ve got you covered (both literally and figuratively) with our picks for different bust sizes so you can feel confident while you rock your bikini.
For Bigger Busts
Finding the right bikini top can be the biggest challenge when you have a bigger chest. Many tops don’t have enough coverage, support, or both.
With the Espresso Martini Top, you get the best of both worlds. This bikini top has cups to keep your bust in place and its underwire keeps you supported and secure. Plus, each increase in alpha size (i.e. sizing up from a Small to a Medium) increases the size by 2 centimeters instead of 1. This top even has adjustable shoulder ties so you can shorten and lengthen it to fit you the way you want it to. With the Espresso Martini Top, you can swim, tan, party, and do whatever you need to do without stressing about your bikini.
Another great style for bigger busts is the Catch On Fire Bikini Top. Its corduroy material is not only unique, but the stretchiness of the fabric hugs your curves while supporting them. The triangle shape gives the top a classic look while keeping your bust secure and reinforced. For those who prefer unpadded bikinis with medium coverage, this is also the right top for you. The moveable, breathable comfort of this top does not take away from how supportive it is. That’s why we love it (and the stand-out colors don’t hurt).
For Mid-Sized Busts
Searching for the right mid-size top is also tricky. You can get caught between sizes and end up with a top that looks too tiny or frumpy.
Thankfully, the Nico Bikini Top gives those with mid-sized busts the perfect push with the right amount of coverage and support at the same time. The Watermelon Cooler style also goes up by 2 centimeters with each increase in alpha size, whereas the other Nico styles go up by 1. When tied in the classic triangle style, the comfortable under-bust strap ensures the perfect amount of cleavage without sacrificing security. Tying your top in the bandeau style gives you the flexibility to push your bust up as little or as much as you want. For mid-sized bikini wearers, you have all the control with the Nico Bikini Top.
For Smaller Busts
Those with smaller busts understand the struggle of finding a bikini top that flatters them in the right ways. With these ByLil picks for smaller chests, you can’t go wrong.
The Juliette Bikini Top is a go-to for small busts because of its versatility. It can be tied in so many ways (see our previous blog post on all the ways you can style a bikini top), giving you the power to decide how you want to look. When worn in the classic triangle style, you get great coverage and stability. Tying the top in the scoop-neck cross tie style or cross-back bandeau style will give you that fantastic push-up effect. The unpadded top doesn’t leave you with cup outlines that distract from how cute it is. With the Juliette Bikini Top, you make the rules.
Our last (but by no means least!) pick is the Yasmine Bikini Top. If you’re smaller-chested and looking for a bikini that’s going to give you as much cleavage as possible, this top should already be in your cart. The tight fit of this style flatters small busts perfectly. The hoop detail in the center draws just the right amount of attention to where you want it. To top it all off, the Yasmine Bikini Top in the Caked by Sand style is reversible.
These are just a few suggestions, but you should always wear what makes you feel like the best, most confident version of yourself.
