Full-bust swimwear lags far behind the growing full-bust segment of the lingerie industry. Only a handful of brands make swimwear designed specifically for DD+ cups. After purchasing a teeny-tiny mermaid-colored string bikini that actually fits me, I was inspired to share the wealth. Fun, full-bust-friendly swimsuits are out there – I promise! And here are 25 of them, just in time for your best summer ever.

We even have an entire, gorgeous post on full bust lingerie trends from CURVE this season. However, for those of us who wear over a GG cup, cute stuff is still hard to find.

After a few years of attending CURVEXPO here in New York, everything starts looking a little identical. I tire of the same brands producing the same styles in new colors every year. Unless it’s something I would personally love to wear, it’s hard for me to keep focus. Luckily, designers seemed to be a little more adventurous this season.
