@MarryMeTiffany:  As much as I’d love to give you asuggestion, all I can think about is how big my boobs will be. I’m a 36 Dirty Delete now….

My best friend growing up had huuuuuge boobs..I always felt insanely blessed with my barely B’s after seeing what she had to struggle through.  I hope when I get pregnant they don’t go all godzilla on me =/ sorry you’re having such a rough time shopping =((

@SFreeman2187:  I’m a 38F normally and now that I’m pregnant, I’m…much bigger.  lol  I have to get fitted for a new bra soon because it’s becoming ridiculous.  I don’t even want to think about the insanity when the baby comes and my milk comes it.  EEK!

 @MarryMeTiffany:  Big boobs are not always the great thing that they are made out to be.  My best advice is to try to go to a place where you can buy the top and bottom separately (this is what I have to do normally).  That way you can get a top to fit the girls and a bottom that fits…well…your butt. I’ve noticed that a lot of independant swimware stores will do this for you.  Also, you’ll have better luck looking for a top that actually uses bra sizing rather than L or XL.  

The other option if you’re really desparate is to have the top custom made and just buy bottoms that fit…but that’s obviously more expensive and kind of a pain.

I bought a bigger plus sized swimsuit however, on Wednesday I tried to wear it to take my bonus son to an indoor water park and needless to say, I didn’t end up going. My boobs are now 40G. They don’t fit in anything.

However, my DD’s did fit in it when I bought it. I got it from Fashion Bug.

I would try online, buying a top and bottom separately as other people have suggested. I know I’ve seen websites where the tops are actually sized to your bra size.

In terms of having to buy a Dirty Delete bra, I love the Calvin Klein brand. I get them from Nordstrom, and they’re cute and comfy. Sometimes once you get into larger bra sizes they can look a little crazy, but these ones still look like normal bras.

@mwitter80:  I’ve never heard the phrase “bonus son” but I love it! You mean your husband’s son, right? How cool.

To be honest, I’d take the swimsuit search in a different direction; find a bottom piece and then just wear a dark colored tank top over a bra for a tankini look.  That way everything is locked and loaded and you’ll have the coverage/support you need.  When it comes down to it, a swimsuit is not very different from bra/panties!

Can you buy the top and the bottom as separate. I know at alot of the stores here you can nix and match your bikinis.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  Yes. I think step-son has negative connotations. So we use the term bonus instead ๐Ÿ™‚

I would just do the bottoms and a tank top, and wear either a bikini or bra underneath.. Or just get a tank top with an inbuilt bra. im a Dirty Delete and the inbuilt bras dont work for me ๐Ÿ™ but i do wear a bikinki under my tankini. I cant go without the support ๐Ÿ™
