Small Boobs? Same – and I’ve Found 12 Bikinis That Really Work For Us


For those of us with small boobs, it can be difficult to find a decent bikini to suit your shape.

I’m pear-shaped, so I’m always looking for swimwear that balances me out. I’m pretty well versed on which styles work for me now, but there’s been a lot of trial and error in the process.

On the plus side, as a 32B I never have to worry about feeling supported on the beach. My main priority is finding a bikini that’s stylish and for want of a better word, flattering.

Luckily there’s an abundance of stylish bikinis on the high street this year that will look great on small boobs, whether you’re looking for underwired, triangle, padded bikini tops or practically anything else. I know, because I’ve spent hours looking.

Since small busts require less support, they look great in plunging necklines, halter tops, classic triangle cuts, and bandeaus. It’s actually much, much easier to find a decent bikini if you’re small-chested.

If you’re aiming to make yours look fuller, details such as ruffles and ruching can help. A little padding and push-up styles also help if you prefer that look, but it’s not necessary.

If you’re not quite sure where to look, fear not. Here, we’ve found the best bikinis especially for those with small boobs with options from Hunza G, H&M, Monki, ASOS and more. It’s time to get excited.
