Try Target if you are looking for something less costly to just lay out in.  I found size XL in their Merona 1 pieces gave me the the room I needed to keep a strapless suit hoisted up but had an option to tie around the neck if I wanted to make the look more “cutesy” with a cover up for a pool party.  Several styles had rouching which helped in the tummy department too. 

Target also carries a Spanx collection, but I personally felt like I was wearing body armour when I tried it in on in the dressing room.  Not comfortable for lounging around the pool…

Good luck!

Try alwaysforme.com. I have a tankini from there with removable straps and it keeps my DDD’s up.

Miraclesuits are amazing!  Cyberswim.com has the biggest selection and the Kara suit works really well if you want to take the straps down.  It has an underwire and is very supportive.  They also have other strapless styles.  I swear by these bathing suits and will not wear another brand.  They suck everything in and look great!

I have a smaller bust than you, but I have had really good luck with Victoria’s Secret bathing suits. My very busty friend (38DDD) also has one from there that she loves. They build real underwires into the suits and have good tankini and one-piece options. Not cheap though.

I’m in the same boat as you.  ALL the bathing suits I see are halter top, I just can’t wear them. I’m a 38F/G and my boobs just pull on my neck so I can’t wear a halter. That being said, I can’t even find a bathing suit top that would fit me. I always have to try the maternity section for a top. I’m normal size (14/xl) on the bottom) so bottoms are never a problem.

I love Lands End for bathing suits (I’m size 16).  They have a huge range of sizes and styles.  Tjey sell some in store at Sears, but I find their website has much better selection.

I bought my 38G underwire tankini from Lane Bryant,you have to order it online, I know its not a strapless but it truly holds up the girls.
