Let’s be real: Shopping for a bathing suit can be a nightmare for anyone, no matter what body type you have. But for those with large busts, it can be even more difficult. Swimwear is already pretty revealing, and an ill-fitting bikini or suit can run the risk of unwanted spillage, not to mention discomfort and lack of support. And when you’re at the beach or hanging by the pool, the last thing you want to worry about is a swimsuit that’s not being cooperative. (There are have other things to worry about, like making sure you have proper SPF protection—hello!)

Thankfully, these days there are way more options for bigger boobs than ever before. Brands like Artesands and Cuup make swimsuits specifically for DD+ cups, and other popular brands like Good American specialize in styles that can fit a variety of sizes, including those with ample assets.

Ahead, we found the best swimsuits for large busts in a myriad of styles, from retro-inspired one pieces, to macrame bikini tops, styles with cool cut-outs, and so much more. All you’ll need to do next is pack them for a weekend beach getaway or start planning a pool party. Now that you’ll be able to find a cute suit, you have the perfect excuse to do so!
