We may be in the thick of winter now but it doesn’t mean we should stop the hunt for the perfect bikini. As they say, it’s still summer somewhere. Or if you can’t really go on a beachside holiday, there’s always next year’s trip to prepare for.
Since small busts need a little less support, they look great in plunging necklines, halter tops, classic triangle cuts, and bandeaus.
If you want to make your pair look a bit fuller, details such as ruffles and ruching can help. Bows are also great for accentuating the area. A little padding and push-up wire can also won’t hurt.
Looking for style inspirations? The Instagram feeds of it models Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber are good places to start.
