Q&A: The Best Swimsuit to Flatter a Small Bust

June 8th, 2007

Q: I’m 5′2" and have a bust size 32A. What style of swimsuit do you suggest for my size?

Wave Stripe Patterned String Bikini TopA:  Your ideal swimsuit will accentuate the bust you have–and make you look more curvy than you are.  Here’s three things to look for in a swimsuit:

(1)  Styles with a hidden underwire, which will give you extra support.
(2)  Styles with removable padding, which will help maximize the bustline you already have.
(3)  Bikini tops with shaped cups, which will help to create curves.  Tie-front bikini tops, in particular, can be tightened to create the appearance of curves.  Ruching also helps to enhance your bustline.

You’ll want to avoid any swimsuit tops that will diminish your curves–such as bandeau style tops or tube-style swimsuits.

    hey, melissa…i love going on trips where i get to rest for a long period of time, read books, listen to music, do stuff that i always get interrupted doing when i’m home! and then you get to see your honey after all that relaxation, too :) my perfect outfit is cute but casual on the trip…pair of cute cotton pants and a t, really low-key even no makeup!…but then i bring an outfit to change into on the plane, train, automobile so everything i do is fresh, i.e. outfit, makeup, hair. wear the clothes you feel best in to be the most confident when you see your man…and it helps to wear something that you know he likes…the style, color, way you look in it :) have fun, i’m jealous

    Have a bit bigger problem than a 32a, I have to wear training bra in a 30, what can you suggest that would look good in a swimsuit and where to find it at a reasonable price, say around 50-60 dollars for the whole suit..
