I’m looking at swimsuits for our honeymoon in two weeks (eeek!) and I’ve started looking at the VS push up swimsuits. I have very small boobs… Like I tried on a swimsuit with no padding and it looked like there was nothing there so I’m looking for a bit of oomph.
Here are the two styles I am looking at:
Has anyone ever bought one of these? Do they work? Any other tips or suggestions to give the girls a bit of lift?

I’ve tried some of these on and I’m not a huge fan.
Granted, I’m in sort of a different situation than you are (I’ve been measured at a 32D), but I personally find that particularly with pushup styles, if I let my shoulders slouch or I lean over or something, there tends to be a bit of ‘gapping’ with a pushup/padded/cupped bathing suit.
And when I’m not wearing anything under a bathing suit, that’s the LAST thing I wanna be worried about.
I’m not sure whether or not you’d have the same problem with a smaller chest. I’d recommend trying some on first and moving around in them before you commit to buying anything.

@MrsBeck: I hear ya. Unfortunately, I think I look like a 12 year old boy trying to wear a bikini, not much curves at all. The swimsuit lady at Nordstrom sold me silicone inserts that you put into your bikini top. Looked AMAZING until one came out in the waves – no joke. I won’t be using those again. I like the idea of a push up swimsuit much better! Best wishes!

@rachelmichelle: I’ve had the same issue. They give awesome boobage, but you really have to be careful how your posture is all the time. Which is super annoying obviously!

I haven’t tried those two in particular, but I have tried LOTS of VS swimsuits over the years.
I have this top in 2 colors which I definitely like (padding is removable):
And earlier this year I bought this new style which I LOVE:
This one has underwire though and goes by bra size. The first one is more of a general sizing (XS, S, M, etc.) and no underwire.

I have one of the halters and medium boobs. I don’t feel like the push up halter does anything at all to add to them.
I also have one of these too – and holy cow, it makes my boobs MAGICAL! Like, hugely awesome. If you have really small boobs and are hoping for a boost, I’d go with one of these. It’s way better than the other suit – I also feel like it’s more “secure” too. My only complaint about this suit is that since it’s so padded, you need to kind of squeeze out the air when you get in and squeeze out the extra water when you get out (there are ways to do it subtly, but it is just a bit weird).

I am tiny as well, and the push up one does nothing for me as well. Have you tried the bombshell halter ones? Those work well for me but I have the same complaint about having to squeeze water out of the suit that Mrs. Lemondrop does! Weird, but it works for making my boobs look fabulous! 🙂

@MrsBeck: I have a VS bikini too very similar to the first link you posted. I am a full B small C and wow that bikini top gives me some unreal cleavage! The ones I have with no padding make me look very small and the one you posted makes me look very gifted in the chest department.. Also it’s very comfortable and doesn’t move around!

i have 2 of this line … i am pretty busty but when i ordered teh shiny snake skin one 2 years ago lol and the one with gems on it i didnt notice the cup size thing (it made mine look huge i was sorta shy to wear it out … so i kow fo r a fact they have padding and will give you that look your desiring (so any of that line should work)

@MrsBeck: I am small-chested and absolutley love the VS push-up bikini tops. The second one you posted is more like the ones that I have, they work great for me! (My size is 34 B…being on the small side of a B!)

I wore one once. The padded cups kept absorbing the water. Each time I got out of the pool I felt the need to push on the pads and basically “wring out” the water. i haven’t worn it since then lol.

I have one of the Miraculous Bra swimsuits (the add 2 cupsizes ones). It looks AMAZING from the front, but I find that it looks pretty fake from the sides.

I know the swimsuit you NEED!!!!!
They are incredible! So much better than anything from VS I have purchased. I have small boobs (~30C) and rib cage. Because of this I find that the bands on the swimsuit don’t find from VS because they have to clip into place, rather than tie. I have tried to order the 32B pushup swimsuits from VS and they do nothing for me. They do not stay in place because they don’t fit snug enough around my rib cage and they do not push up the way I expect them too.
Voda makes an AMAZING swimsuit. I watched the videos and read reviews online. I was skeptical because I hadn’t actually met anyone in real life who had one. But I ordered 2 for my honeymoon just to try and I love them so much. No one can tell you have a push-up swimsuit on. They do not absorb water like crazy. They don’t get heavy in the water. They also don’t have super thick padding, it’s all about how the material is placed inside the cups.
I bought this one:
I also bought the lace trimmed one. They also have halter, bandeau and several other styles.
Here are some other reviews:

These sort of work but you do have to be careful with posture like if the cups move a little someone looking from your side could see you nipples! Bc the cups are sooo big & padded and push up too much and if your as flat as me there will be a gap for your nips to show if its not always on tight and pulled down enough.
