I need a swimming costume so I can take my Ds swimming .
I have 38gg/h boobs & I need something that Thai support me & not look as though it would suit my Nan better .
I really like the 60s style ones & my limit is £50 at the utter most .

I just don't know where to look & would more than likely be bought online as I have barely any shops where I live

Have u tried bravissimo they have some really nice ones and fit in bra sizes. You can buy online and return if needed.

Look on EBay, you can get some lovely Freya bikinis /swimsuits in bra sizes.

After looking at loads of expensive (to me anyway) ones such as speedo sculpture, lands end, bravissimo, etc I actually found a really nice one in Peacocks!

It's available in pink or black and is a really nice fit, I'm a 34G. I got mine for £14 as a tiny bit needed stitching but even at full price of £18 it's a bargain!

Ninth none on eBay at the moment

Your it only goes up to a 14 online & I don't have a store local to see if it goes in to bigger sizes

crazyhamster I think it went up to an 18 in the shop. No good to you though if no shop locally!

Swimwear 365 (google for website).

If you've got a flexible credit card, do what I did: ordered about 12 different styles/sizes, tried on at home and sent all but one back! They have loads of different brands for all shapes (and you'll easily get one in your price range or cheaper)

Bravissimo is my first port of call. Their fitters are amazing.

Shoe The nearest store is around 40 miles away so id have to buy online

Shame as I have also heard people raving about Bravissimo, they do cup sizes and have great fitters. Debenhams also do some in cup sizes.

This place is great:

OP Bravissimo are also pretty good at giving advice over the phone and you can swap sizes as many times as you like for no extra charge.

I like my Freya active one very much. More functional than pretty though.

Bravissimo?

Thanks everybody , ill have a good look at the sights mentioned when I get chance

If you use Ample Bosom make sure to ignore the size chart, I believe they still use the old add 4 nonsense.

Look at the Venice beach under wired cossie on swimwear 365 it comes in hot pink or grey. I have it and it is lovely. Also try tesco they had lots of bra sized fuller bust swimwear. I got a bikini, tankini and cossie for less than my one Venice beach costume.

Check out www.figleaves.com - they have a DD+ swimwear section and they have a sale on at the moment - I recently bought these Zoggs (http://www.figleaves.com/uk/product/ZOG-292130/Zoggs-Wyomi-V-Neck-DG-Swimsuit/?size=&colour=Blues) and think they're very good/ supportive while still looking nice.
