This year I’m determined to plan ahead and pick up several suits for my 2015 beach vacation, even if it involves carefully hoarding them until January of next year. While the full bust swimsuit market has […]
Six years ago, I moved from the landlocked Midwest to a city on the ocean and never looked back. I try to make it to the beach every week in the summer (salt water is the cure for everything, as they say). As such, I have amassed a small collection of swimsuits. So many people hate swimsuit shopping, but I love it, especially since discovering swimwear that actually fits me. Seriously, full bust swimwear is a life changer. I’ve stopped buying non-cup-sized bikinis entirely. Nothing is worse than trying on an XL bikini top, only to find the band is too big and the cups are still too small. Well-fitting swimwear is like cute lingerie that’s socially-acceptable to wear outside. In other words, it’s the best.

Today’s Ask the Addict feature comes from lipstainedgarterbelts who writes: I know this is a lingerie blog, but would you happen to know where to get swimsuits to fit full busts (I’m a 34 G)? Great question! I can definitely understand why you may have had some trouble finding swimwear to fit your size. A lot of companies equate full bust with plus size […]
Growing up, I remember thinking there were only two bikini top options: sports bra style or triangle. While those are totally valid styles for anyone who wants to wear them, they are not necessarily supportive, especially for plus sizes. I wore a triangle bikini top exactly once and spent more time worrying about spillage than actually enjoying the pool. Wearing a bikini top is a lot like wearing a bra. […]
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.
