  • I have the same problem....
    im in DDD cup, but im not so Wide around... so its hard to find bras that fit me right, let alone a bathing suit... i find im more comfy just wearing regular clothes when i swimming... lol i hate it...
    im hoping i eventually get back down to a more common size bust.... will make it all so much easier....

  • Well, it just depends on what you want. If you go to a regular store like Macys, you might find bigger suits but they will be old lady suits too. If you just want a regular tankini or something, you might have to go online. There is a store called water, water, everywhere, but I don't know where they are anymore. Google specialty bathing suit stores in your area. I had large bust after baby no 3 and I just didnt wear a bathing suit. I never could find one. I had a reduction in 02 and thats made a huge difference. Now I can buy regular ones.

  • My sister and I used to buy two bikini sets that would match in different sizes so that we could switch the pieces when we were younger. I would get one size bigger than her, and keep that top. She would keep the smaller top and take the larger bottoms. Go somewhere you can find separates that you can match together. I got mine from Sears I want to say, it is a takini set so it is still fairly modest, and it fits! I have a top that is a size larger than my bottoms, and I think I always will have to buy suits that way. My mother in law gets her swimwear from Lane Bryant. She is bigger though, I am not sure if you are just big chested or if you need a plus size. That will make a big difference in what you buy.

  • Either get mix'n'match separates like a PP said, or look for a top with extra rouching (sp?) around the bust.
