6 Supportive Swimwear Brands for Women With, You Know, Bodies

Style Lists

Unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret model, you’re not fitting into those triangle bikini tops and super slim one-pieces most stores tout. Actually, Victoria’s Secret is retiring their swimwear collection, so that must say something.

Unfortunately, not all stores have caught on just yet. For the real women of the world pulling up straps, hoisting the girls, tying halters way too tight and spilling out over seem-to-be-made-for-babies bikini bottoms, we’ve found a few brands that make swimsuits for women. Swim happily!

ASOS wanted to offer more options to full-figured women, so they created them. ASOS CURVE is a line offered exclusively by the online shop featuring tons of cute clothes. The CURVE swimwear collection consists of supportive plunge bikini tops, flowing swim-dresses, and high-waisted bottoms. If you’re top-heavy, head over to their DD+ Swimwear sections for tons of options, like this cutout halter crop bikini. No matter what you choose, ASOS guarantees you’ll look chic.

This revered bra brand has two swim lines: Panache Swim and Cleo Swim by Panache. If you’re feeling a little girly, go with Cleo. Panache Swim will satisfy the more sophisticated swimmers. What the collections have in common is that they are both made for women with boobs and hips—because, real women have curves.
