Find a Swimsuit Top That Can’t Be Topped!

Bandeau Tops

The bandeau swimsuit top is simple in construction but playful and chic in effect. This is the perfect, flirty choice for sunbathers looking to show their stomachs and get maximum sun. Notably (and thankfully!), there is a style of bandeau swimsuit for women of every bust size.

For women with smaller busts, a strapless bandeau top with a sweetheart neckline, ruching, ruffles, or bold pattern can give the illusion of fuller curves. This style is simple and chic, while drawing attention to and complementing the chest.

A bandeau top with straps is a better choice for women with larger busts. Styles that tie in the back and around the neck can provide lift and support, perfectly customized to your size.

Halter Tops

The halter top swimsuit style is a classic. With adjustable straps that tie around your neck and back, you’re able to tailor the lift according to your personal size and preference. Halter swimsuits come in a variety of cuts and styles, from show-stopping deep v-necklines to elegant, body-shaping tankinis. In other words, there’s a halter swimsuit for every body type!

Women with larger chests should consider a halter top with thicker neck straps, which will provide added lift and support. Combine a halter top with thick, crossover back straps and your final fit is the epitome of comfort and style.

Hi-Neck Tops

Want to call attention to your shoulders and neckline? The hi-neck swimsuit is for you. As the name implies, this chic style comes high on the chest – perfect for delicately highlighting the neck, collarbone, and shoulders.

The hi-neck style is perfect for a beauty who prefers more coverage over the bust. For a bit of va-va-voom, choose a hi-neck suit with an alluring keyhole cutout.

Midkini Tops

A relative of the tankini, the midkini offers moderate coverage while showcasing the midriff and flaunting your classic curves. The midkini extends a few inches farther than a bikini top, hitting at the ribcage and flattering the stomach and hips. This is the perfect choice for a pool party charmer who desires a bit more coverage than the traditional bikini, but still wants to highlight the waist and midsection.

Tankini Tops

The beauty of the slimming tankini top is two-fold: it smoothes and conceals in the tummy area while simultaneously contouring your feminine curves. The tankini style is a perfect choice for the woman who wants the modest, sophisticated coverage of a one piece, but the undeniable convenience of a two piece.

If you’re searching for a swimsuit top that flatters your stomach, look for tankinis with an abundance of shirring, ruching, and textured details across the midsection.

Triangle Tops

When we say the word “bikini,” does a triangle top come to mind? This traditional bikini top made its first appearance in 1946 and has been in style ever since!

Triangle tops are typically flirty and playful, and a complementary fit for smaller busted women who want to enhance their chest and give the illusion of curves.

Triangle-style bikini tops are often extremely customizable, with adjustable bust coverage and ties around the back to tailor fit and lift. Women with a fuller chest should opt for styles with underwire or molded cups to ensure adequate support.

The deep cut of triangle tops highlights the décolletage – one reason this style is a surefire way to turn heads from the boardwalk to the beach.

Underwire & Push-Up Swim Tops

Mimosas, espresso, vacation! We all need a little pick-me-up now and then. Thankfully, the perfect swimsuit top with underwire does just that. With a thin wire running under each cup, underwire tops are structured to comfortably contain, lift, and support your bust. These wires lift your bust from below, and as a result, offer support that’s similar to your favorite bra.

Underwire styles are ideal for women with larger busts, but they can also give a much-desired boost to smaller busts.

Opt for an underwire swim top to shape and maximize your assets to eye-catching perfection! So, no matter where the water takes you, you’re ready.
