For those of us with small boobs, it can be difficult to find a decent bikini that makes us feel confident.
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 looks good too.
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, halternecks, classic triangle cuts, and bandeaus.
Regardless of how it might feel sometimes, it’s actually much, much easier to find a decent bikini if you’re small-chested as you don’t have to worry about whether a brand will cater to your size.
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, M&S and more. It’s time to get excited for your next holiday!
