We’re almost certain that an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie yellow polka-dot bikini never held the likes of Dolly or Marilyn in place…so why try and force it? Instead, opt for one of these supportive (yet super-cute) swimsuits that will keep your boobs right where you want them.
A HALTER ONE-PIECE (WITH SECRET SUPPORT)
Normally, we’d say halter necklines are a big no-no, since they tend to squish the girls into pancakes. But this suit has hidden underwire cups to create the perfect hourglass silhouette.
A COLOR-BLOCKED BIKINI (FOR OPTICAL ILLUSIONS)
Speaking of hourglass, work some visual magic with contrasting colors and vertical lines to make your middle look more narrow. Bonus: The underwire cups of a bra top lend support to your bosom.
A SHIRRED BANDEAU (TO FEEL SASSY)
Never underestimate the power of some well-placed ruching, which can disguise supportive underwires (should that not be your favorite look). This cinched bikini top offers full boob coverage without feeling like you’re too covered up.

A DOUBLE-STRAP TRIANGLE TOP (FOR EXTRA HOISTING)
Thought your days of triangle bikinis were over? Think again. The support of additional adjustable straps (plus bigger cup sizes ranging up to G) means you can rock the silhouette with confidence.
A V-NECK ONE-PIECE (TO WRAP IT ALL UP)
Ditto to plunging necklines. You can wear them — if you have the right support. This shaping suit’s diagonal seams hold you in, while the wide straps and wrapped silhouette keep your girls in place.
