- Wedding: Disneyland - January 2016
I’ve checked out Venus and they definitely look like they have some cute boyshorts! I love the ones with the laces so it can be made a little cheekier if I want 😉
I’ve also looked through Swimsuits for All, but so far everything I like doesn’t seem to come in my size 🙁 it’s a little confusing since the front page says their suits start at size 4, but for all the suits I like the smallest top size is 36Dear Daughter and the smallest bottom is a 10? Maybe I’m just liking the wrong suits haha.
Anyway, I’ll be checking out Asos tonight once I can use my deskptop and not just my phone. That site seems like its going to take some digging!

I know you said you are wary of ordering online, but I am too and took the plunge for honeymoon swimsuits and loved all of them except a one piece I bought just to try on.

Check zaful and cupshe!
I have a lot of great swimsuits from these stores just make sure to read reviews/ look at customer pics and take a close look at the bottoms cause some are waaaay too cheeky

Whoa. Cupshe has some SERIOUSLY pretty suits!! I’m in love! It looks like some of their bottoms are brief cut, which I’ll take if I can’t get boyshorts. Omg, so pretty!!
I’ll definitely look at Zaful too!

Commenting to follow. I have such a hard time finding swimsuits now that VS stopped selling them!

Victoria’s Secret ruined my life when they stopped selling swimsuits.
Cupshe and Zaful were big fails for me. TJ Maxx is the only place I’ve had luck and even that is hit or miss depending on what’s in stock.

I second Winners/Marshall’s/TJ Maxx – I have such a hard time finding underwire swim tops but I’ve bought 3 suits there in the last year alone! They are the best kind (adjustable and comfortable) – they’re all Body Glove, you can see what I mean on their website. I wouldn’t buy anything else now!

TwinkleBoss : The ONLY downside with CupShe is that you pay for what you get. They’re cheap but very cute. Quality could be better.. but I couldn’t pass up the prices on some of the suits. I got 3 for $60.
One was a navy/white striped and in the pool on our honeymoon it turned green from chemicals, I’m hoping bleach fixes the problem. The other I got, the top material was too thin and you could see the pads on the inside, so I’ll just have to open a seam and replace them with my own. Overall still happy with them.
Sizing – I recommend going a size larger and reading the reviews. I followed reviews and ordered mediums (usually I’m a small) and they fit perfect, some of the bottoms were a little cheeky though.

I also love venus! Amazon is always worth checking because you never known when you’ll find a great deal on something. I’ve gotten some bottoms on there for cheap.

TwinkleBoss : Baku bathers are an Australian brand. They do collections that basically have different tops in different styles and bottoms with different cuts. They do under wire tops from an A cup to a G too. It basically allows you to pick a top and a bottom with a particular pattern which is the most flattering for you. They ship internationally too. They aren’t cheap but they are quality and you will enjoy and feel great in their stuff.
Also another great Aussie brand that offers variety for different shapes is seafolly. I’m plus size with boobs that need a boost and every year I can buy nice supportive and flattering bathers from their collections.

Stupid VS and their discontinued swimsuits. I was furious when they did that! I honestly have had great luck with Target. Their stuff I’ve gotten seems to be well made and thick sturdy material. I got the ruffle cheeky bottom with the ruched back and it fit just like the VS bottoms did.
I also ordered from CupShe and it was just too skimpy of a cut for my taste. Might try my luck again with a plunging V-neck one piece someday, but my torso is long so I’m worried it will end up just giving me a giant wedgie. Lol
