Cute swimsuits for women who are cursed with small chests?

Every year I order a SUPER CUTE bathing suit from Victoria's Secret and EVERY YEAR I am disappointed when I put it on because of course it doesn't look near as good on me as it did on the chick with big knockers in the magazine LOL. Any suggestions on cute styles for small chested girls before I do my order this year??

  • Yeah stop shopping at Victoria Secrets. Ok so you need a swim suit to enhance what you have. There are plenty of ways to do this. You don't have to spend a lot of money either. A top with ruffles does it , folds and or pleating. Under-wire with padding works too.
    Lands end has a whole section for different figures. Just go to their website to get ideas.This place has some good ones
    Okay so one more thing to look at here

  • The best type of top for a small chest is a halter with a one inch band under the cup.  It makes you look bigger!  Also a cute skirted bottom (not too long)  will help even things out a bit.  Old Navy has the best and they're cheap! I've had horrible luck with VS bras and swimsuits they are just not made for super small breasts.

  • Personally, I don't consider it a curse. It's a blessing. Ever think about aerobics class with water balloons strapped on? How about running? Isn't sleeping on your stomach a nice luxury? Anyway...
    I look for swim suits with a center bust focal point. Some examples from years past are: a solid black one piece with a silver center zipper, a floral tankini with a bamboo-look circle that cinched the bodice, a solid one piece with a white upper trim and straps. You get the idea -- bring the eye up & give an illusion of bustline attention.
    Happy shopping.

  • This website has awesome, but pricey, suits for us smaller chested gals. I'm planning on getting one this year.
