Looking for help to find a bikini. I'm short, size 12 though trying to slim to a 10 before hols. Bra size is 34DD from M&S though can be a 32D.

I fall out of plunge bras and need biggish cups and straps. I'm 35 mum of two looking for something stylish not Mumsy, so far have found very little on the high street. Would preferably buy in store as I haven't got time for postage returns unless you have any great recommendations online.

Bravissimo have a few shops, you may be close to one? Failing that I have ordered over the phone and have managed to nail the size on the first order based on the fact that the person taking the order really knew their stock and sizing's. It could be worth a look?

Have a look on figleaves

Lots of lovely styles, and you can try them on at home and send back the ones that don't fit. Much easier than faffing about in changing rooms.

I second bravissimo. Their returns are very easy, I think (not totally sure) the packet will fit in the postbox so no need for post office trip. They will put you in a smaller back size and a bigger cup size.

At a size 10/12 you may not be in the right back size (I am a size 20/22 and wear a 36 back). Measure according to bra guru to see if the size is correct.

I got a couple of lovely ones in Asda for £13!

Thanks all, i have a bravissimo nearby so tempted to book a fitting in. Off to find tape measure to check bra size.

I tried Asda but their 34D was too big around the top of the cups and the 32 dug in.

I second Figleaves, I got a very flattering bikini from them.

I got a couple from meandmycurves, I found they had a good selection smile

Bravissimo every time! They are excellent. Book a fitting and you'll not look back!

I'm normally a 34f and I find debenhams are the best on the high street.

According to that sizing guide I'm a 30E!! Measuring 31 inches but it recommends rounding down.

Weirdly, I love Catalan’s bikinis, I have a few from years ago that I still bring out each holiday. Here is a link to the 32Ds that they have. smile

Excellent prices too so you can get a few wink

KateSpadeAddict Mon 04-Apr-16 20:46:29

That is supposed to be Matalan’s !!

Your size sound about right if you are a 34E in M&S as they add inches to the back size and then you end up with the wrong cup size! 30 sounds like a more normal size for size 10/12 too

dementedpixie Mon 04-Apr-16 20:50:21

34DD not 34E

Laska5772 Mon 04-Apr-16 20:52:38

Ive bought several bikinis before from Belle lingerie they often have reduced styles and are happy to return/exchange

KatharinaRosalie Mon 04-Apr-16 21:02:36

you might need even bigger than E, if 34DD fits in the cup. DD cup in 34 is same size as F cup in 30.

Have you tried a 'fuller bust bikini' search on asos?
I find it very hard to get comfortable and unhideous bikinis ( cursed blessed with 28Gs) but I've found more than a few I've liked and found them really good.

I have just bought this Panache Annalise in the colbalt. Its a really great fitting bra top for me (36E after MN Bra intervention smile)

Have you tried Boux Avenue?

I'm 34F and have a lovely bikini in my exact bra size from Triumph. It's fashionable and doesn't look like a specific large size item, IYSWIM.

I bought it in a department store.
