swimsuits that aren't a bust

They're either too big or too small. Yes, we're talking bust sizes. A recent poll in ShopSmart Magazine revealed that 42 percent of women struggle to find a suit that supports their curves. 31 percent of women said that they had trouble finding a suit with enough coverage up top. What does this tell us? Flattering our busts can be, well, a bust when it comes to swimsuit shopping. We scoped out some swimwear that will match up to your body type, keeping your bust happy and striking all the summer days long.

Finding the right fit

According to Susan Nethero, "The Bra Whisperer" and owner of {intimacy} bra stores in cities like Scottsdale and Atlanta, 85 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size -- even when it comes to their swimwear. "Looks for bathing suit tops with underwire that will help to lift and separate the bust line," she recommends.
