a swimsuit for someone with saggy, wonky, asymmetrical breasts

I am going on holiday soon. I need a swimming costume or a tankini (not a bikini!)

However years of pregnancy/breastfeeding seem to have resulted in my breasts being rather lopsided, one is significantly larger than the other, and my once pert breasts now flop down somewhere near my belly button. They have lost their oomph and need support.

I can disguise this with my normal every day wardrobe, it doesn't really bother me. But today I went shopping, tried on a couple of sturdy underwired ones and the problem is noticeable. One cup is filled well and the other is either straining to jump out or noticeably empty.

Can anyone help with finding a style that would disguise this or is it mission impossible?

I have the exact same problem hmm sadly not able to add anything to help you but just wanted to let you know you're not alone. I'm hoping bf dc3 will help even them out a little. Wishful thinking I know but worth a try!

Have a look at the Bravissimo website. Their swimwear is great and comes in cup size.

Missdee sadly I can't conceive and produce a baby by next month but I like your logic.

I think the problem stems from the fact that most costumes with underwriting try to give fantastic looking cleavage whereas attempting to create cleavage on me just emphasises the issue.

I have the same problem in that I have different sized breasts. I find bandeau style bikinis work best on me as it doesn't define each breast on their own...they slightly merge and you don't see the size difference.

However I have fairly small breasts so it may not work for you. But who knows!

Freya deco bras gave me a boob job effect in so much as tits near chest not tummy
Looked great not boosting just well fitting
The bikinis had similar effect if you're ok with tummy
Haven't tried their tankini

Sally you may have found the answer to my problems,

I quite like this one- it has fantastic disguising potential, the pattern will provide an optical illusion maybe
