Have you checked out Victoria’s Secret yet? They have some suits that tie in the back and around your neck. You can tie the one that normally goes around your neck in the back too. Make sense? I have one from last year and really like it. Although, I don’t really have a lot on top, it may be worth a shot. They have a good return policy too and you can check them out in store.

My issue exactly! I bought this one, and while I admit I wouldn’t go swimming in it (it gets heavy and I have to hold it up when i’m climbing out of the pool) It’s good for an in-the-meantime swimsuit and laying out in.

 I actually ordered this in the mocha b/c that’s all they had at the time (i got mine on sale though). It’s not a bad choice, but depending on how busty you are, you need the support of straps, too. I’m a Dirty Delete, so I really notice the difference between my halter victoria secret swimsuit and my strapless. It does have removeable straps so I will be able to put them back on, yay!

I think as a C-cup, you could go with a bandeau top that TIES in the back, not latches. Then you have the luxury of tying it a little tighter for support. Make sure it has wire cups in it, though, so you get the lift and you don’t get squished. VS has great stuff, I really like their swimsuits. I have their miracle bra halter, but I typically wear a 36Dirty Delete and I order a 34Dirty Delete. The Dirty Delete top is not as covering as I expected it to be, so if you like a more coverage top you may consider ordering a bra size bigger, and DEFINITELY order a band size down because swimsuits stretch easily.

I’ve had good luck at Target (or maybe I’m just cheap!) I take the bandeau ones that have the string to tie around your neck and just tie it around my back instead. Sure, you have to yank it up every now and then, but most of them have cups, which helps.

I was a lifeguard for years, and had the most awful tan lines you can imagine (flip flop, shorts, one-piece with hole in the back, sun-in-one-direction-side-face-tan) so this is near and dear to my heart 🙂
