For folk with nowt but gnat bites up top?

And if so, are they practical to swim in?

I think sell them. No idea how comfortable they are.

I bought a bikini from new look last year which is underwired and has foam moulded cups. Its not padded as such but give a bit more shape and definition (I'm an A cup) this sort of thing

I haven't bought one but a friend got a padded bikini top from Primark. Actually it looks lovely on her and gives her a bit of umpf.

Tesco have some nice bra sized bikini tops in just now and I think some were padded.

That's exactly what's needed.
Thanks all, off to town.

I barely fill an a cup and look like a boy in a normal bikini top! I have got a couple of bikinis from 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 also went for a new look one. I have a AA cup blush. Got a padded push up in a size 8.

I found some in la senza. Tried on this one and felt like Betty Boop ha ha !!

This one wasn't bad though.

Good to know you can swim in the gel ones.

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' confused?

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!!
