Bra's and Bikini Tops for the Busty! Cute Ones DO Exist!

Body by Victoria Demi Bra, Victoria's Secret
Alas! I have found a bra and a bathing suit top that I love. I usually only write about makeup but my latest Victoria's Secret purchases have been the latest stand-out products for me. I ordered a few bra's and a bathing suit top and I can say that the clouds have parted and the sun is shining through. First, a little background. I wear a 34DD which is next to impossible to find unless you order online whether its a bra or a bathing suit top. It is near impossible to find all of the qualities you desire in one bra if you wear a DD or higher and you're thin. In fact, us busty gals are severely underserved when it comes to bras. Victoria's Secret finally got on the ball and starting at least making some swimwear and bra's in bigger sizes but with smaller band width. Is it really that impossible to think that just because you are a 32 or 34 around that you couldn't possibly be any bigger than a D cup? Well apparently 98% of the stores that sell bras think so. I recently took advantage of the VS clearance sale where some of their Body By Victoria bra's were marked down from $45 to $19.99 and if you spend $50, you get free shipping. I was able to snag two of these even though I wanted solid colors, all that was left were some with various prints. I received my shipment and I absolutely love these bra's! The style is just a nice basic underwire demi-bra which means that it covers about 3/4 of the front of the breast area so it gives you a nice shape without suffocating your girls (see photo above). Which brings me to another complaint. Why do bra makers think that just because you are large breasted, you must hate them and want to make them disappear?  I can't stand when my only options are full coverage or ones that flatten or separate the girls rather than push them closer together. They are a pair, they do not want to be separated.  I've never been one to spend much on bra's because I figure they stay hidden and quite frankly, they aren't an exciting purchase. The idea of spending $60 on a bra makes me sick to my stomach actually. So I couldn't pass up the $19.99. Even if you aren't bigger than a D cup, this bra would work for anyone and be amazing.

Rio Push-Up Bandeau Victoria's Secret
As if I haven't been blessed enough, VS also carries DD sizes in swimwear. Unfortunately, the smaller D cups like 32 and 34 DD and DDD are always limited so you kind of have to take what you can get as far as styles and colors. I really recommend the Rio Push-Up Twist Bandeau bathing suit top from the Very Sexy line no matter what size you are. I ordered it in the color you see in the photo which is Shimmer Blue Sky and it is a minty blue, to die for. Some colors are marked down but the newer shades like the one I ordered is not. The retail price is $48 for the top which is pricy in my book for a bathing suit top. This style is available in sizes up to DD and it fits amazing! It covers enough so that you're comfortable but not so much that you look like a granny. You can wear this strapless like in the photo or opt to put the straps on. So happy to have found something stylish and pretty rather than have to settle for whatever fits. A couple of years ago when there was even LESS of a selection of bathing suits in my size, I had to actually order from a company in England and wait like a month to get my order and guess what? The top was too small! But I really liked the bottoms so I had to keep it. But thankfully, this year, I won't have to look to foreign countries to make this type of purchase because Victoria's Secret finally wised up and solved all of my ta-ta troubles.

  1. I feel your pain! I'm a 34 DD too! It is miserable to find a bra that is not a "granny" bra! Have you seen the Lunaire line? It's pretty and reasonable too.
