The suit I bought this summer was from Macy’s and the brand is Coco Reef.  They’re sized by bra size, so you get coverage, but they have fun styles and prints.  I found it’s hard to find a bathing suit that covers you up enough, but gives enough support AND looks cute.  I really liked the choices I found in this brand.  I can’t find the photo of the one I bought, but it’s a yellow and brown Missoni-looking print-very cute.

I’ve bought from figleaves.com before and had success.  I actually found my new suit for this year at a high-end (I say that only because those are the style of shops that will carry in stock the larger cup, smaller back items) lingerie shop and was thrilled.  Check local lingerie stores, many of them may carry suits as well.

I wear a C cup, and D cup bathing suits were borderline too small on me!  Who were these things made for??  At a C cup I can’t find any regular bathing suits that fit!  These puppies aren’t even "big"!!!!!  I found one, plain black, friggin $150…ugh..I will pass.  Whew!  Thanks for the opportunity to vent!

Check some Tommy Bahama bathingsuits on everythingbutwater.  There are two styles that I would recommend and the come in cup sizes:

This one looks sexy in black.  It fits well because it comes in cup sizes and the halter and back strap are tied, so you can make it as loose or tight as you want it.

This is the two piece version of the above suit.  I don’t have this one, but it looks very supportive.

I can’t say enough good things about my new bikini from http://www.freyalingerie.co.uk. 

As a very buxom gal, I wear their bras and thought I’d try the swimsuit line and I hit the jackpot!!

It’s the first time in many years that I was comfortable wearing a two piece without feeling self conscious. Fabulous construction on top(it really holds the girls in!) and a really beautiful design, too. I tried it on at the store for size and then found it on Ebay for less than a quarter of the price.

I’m a 34Dirty Delete and a size 6-8 in clothes and the D-cup swimsuits (I wear a medium) from J. Crew fit perfectly.  They’re about $90 retail, but they’re always going on sale, especially as summer comes to an end.  They have lots of different styles and colors (although not as much as the regular sizes)

I can’t even begin to deal with VS – I grew out of their DDs years ago (I heard they make them smaller so that you feel like you’re wearing a bigger size?)  For Dirty Delete bras, try Gap Body (seriously) and keep an eye out on Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom sale pages.  I just got a Wacoal for $25 the other day at Bloomies!

I feel your pain ladies!

I was always a B until college and then I shot up to a large C cup (nice for lingerie, not so nice for bikinis!) and I look HUGE in bathing suits from most stores.

I’m a large D, and I get compliments all the time on my bikini top.  It’s a halter by Kenneth Cole (Reaction, I think) and I bought it a couple years ago at Ross for cheap.  They didn’t have matching bottoms to fit me, so I just got a plain bottom from Target.
