We might not be going on a tropical beach holiday anytime soon, but we still want to look chic in our swimsuits wherever we’re sunbathing.
For women with bigger busts, opting for one-pieces that come with underwire is a sure-fire way to find swimwear that offers support — but finding them can prove challenging.
Look no further because we’ve done the sleuthing for you. Whether you’re looking for simple black, coral red or vintage prints, these plus-size swimsuits offer both style and support. They’re all underwired and run up to a size 42F, so you can feel comfortable at the pool or wherever you’re enjoying the sun.
Here are 7 of the best plus-size one-pieces with underwire from our favourite curve fashion stores, including Simply Be, Curvy Kate, ASOS, Next, and more.
