Who among us busty types has dreaded getting swimwear, even more so than getting a new bra? Never fear, Brava is here to ensure that you look your best this summer! Here are five of our favourite D cup and up swim styles this year.
For years in our fitting rooms, we would be asked for a triangle bikini like the styles our A, B and C cupped sisters were wearing. At the time, there wasn't a minimal triangle bikini style for us D cup and up women. But now... cue the RAQ Classic Halter Bikini! Designed specially for E to G cups, RAQ is perfect for lounging by the poolside, at the beach, or wearing as a bra in the hot Australian summer. We also love that RAQ is an Australian brand created by Brava customer, Sophia Argyropoulos - you can read her guest blog on the Bra Fitter right here!
Another Australian brand (and also produced by another Brava customer, Rachael Calvert!) that we've been super impressed with is the brilliant Marvell Lane, in particular the lovely Sofia Swimsuit. The cuts are fabulous and feminine, and the prints are gorgeous too. Marvell Lane focuses on cup sizes DD - H and they've totally nailed it. Swimsuits not your thing? There's also the same great print and cut with the Ava Bikini.
Frills, frills, frills! The Fantasie Marseille Bardot Swimsuit in the beautiful twilight colour is super flattering and supportive. This boho-inspired swimsuit features a crochet frill neck that can be worn up up or off the shoulders, and is perfect for taking you from the beach to the bar with a wrap skirt and sandals.
We love the crocheted brilliance of Freya Sundance Padded High Neck Crop Top and we wait in anticipation to see which colour they decide to release the Sundance range in next. This summer they've gone with a gorgeous olive green called Fern, very on-trend for this season. We've also got the Tankini and the Balcony Bikini in this great colour too!
This bright carnival print will chase away the summer blues! The Elomi Aztec Moulded Adjustable Swimsuit is amazing for its sheer versatility - it looks great on every skin tone and the adjustable drawstring detail over the bust allows you to choose how much coverage you would like, and the bust is lined with foam to give lift and support. If you love the 90s inspired print, there's also the Tankini and Plunge Bikini in this great colourway.
Slick leather look? Check. Stylish strap detailing? Check. On trend animal print? Check. The Prima Donna Freedom Padded Balcony Bikini ticks all of our summer boxes. You have the "freedom" to wear Freedom as an over-the-shoulder bikini or convert it to a halter style, and the strap detailing is another good one to show off in your post-swim outfit, not to mention the same fantastic support as a Prima Donna bra.
Note that stock of each of these is limited so be sure to grab your size now!
