Yep! I liike them a lot because many of the styles fit like an actual bra so they feel nice and secure. Try them on at the store though if you have never tried them on before because the sizing can be a bit off

I have tried several of their bathing suita and never kept a single one. The padding in their tops is so extreme that it sits right on top of my boobs instead of covering them! It’s like it balanced on my nipples. Lol I’m sorry, I don’t know how else to describe it!

@FoxyBride14:  I love them, but since shipping is almost $50 per order to Canada with taxes and duty I can’t say I’ve tried a lot. I do like the ones I have though.

I really like the way they fit. They’re the only company I’ve found that makes a strapless bikini top that works for big boobs (it’s basically a strapless bra). The color of the suits seems to fade pretty quickly, though, so be aware of that.

I love em. I normally get the cheap mix and match! I always get the ones without padding too.. i mean who wants to ring out the padding every time they get out of the water! lol But I love the variety of styles and colors. And there is always a point where they put them on sale or BOGO so I normally get them fairly cheap.

@Peanut-Sue:  +100000000 OMG I hate the padding! I have big enough boobs that I really need an underwire in a bikini to feel remotely secure, but even the DD+ cups are padded like 2 inches thick!!! WHY!! And then when they get wet, the padding soaks up water and they feel heavy.

I just want a cute underwire halter bikini with stretchy fabric only. Is that too much to ask?

@Peanut-Sue:  have you tried the ones without padding? I don’t like padding in swim suits, because they basically become sponges when you go into the water.. but VS has plenty of styles that only have the thin liner that goes in the bra (which is also removable) You just have to stay away from the push up ones!

ETA: here’s one I’m talking about. underwire, removable padding(which I assume is the normal scrap of fabric they put in bathing suits to keep your nips from showing) and it’s super cute!

@FoxyBride14:  I have a few, and I really like them. I’m not exactly in model figure, but they fit me well and are flattering. They also hold up well, which I like.

I had a really cute bikini from vs a few years ago but it only lasted me one summer. The strings started pilling and it just wasn’t usable anymore. Just make sure you pick a durable style.

The one that I had was GREAT! I have a large chest and it was awesome having a suit sized like a bra! It also lasted me like 3 years… Could of gone longer if I took better care of it.

@FoxyBride14:  I actually really dislike their bathing suits. I’m biased because I have a large chest…I have D or sometimes DD cups, and my favorite bathing suits are from J. Crew. VS bathing suits barely cover my nip when I order a L or XL top. J. Crew has super supportive underwire tops that come in bra sizes, and their sales are phenomenal. I buy tons of colors and mix & match tops and bottoms.
