I barely fill an a cup and look like a boy in a normal bikini top! I have got a couple of bikinis from maxcleavage.co.uk and they r really nice and don't look really 'fake' if you know what I mean. The bikinis I have got are gel ones and they usually do them according to bra sizes and cater for small sizes. You can swim in them too, they don't get weighed down in the water and they also do tankinis and full swimming cossies. It is quite a small company and you can ring them too if you have any queries.
I found Banana Moon bikinis worked well for me (I'm AA), if you just want a bit of shape but not 'stick-on' boobs IYKMIM. Although not a perfect fit, it's the best compromise I've been able to find. Btw, doesn't the weight of the gel bikini tops cause them to 'fall down' ?
I have had several bikinis with removable pads. Don't really give much ompf but do give a nice shape and stop any cold nipple poking through! The only down side is they take ages to try out. So when you get out the sea/pool and have a sunbath for a while they usually don't completely dry. So if you put your top back on you have very fetching wet boob marks!!
