If the last few days of rain have seen you reaching for the holiday brochures, you’re not alone. There’s nothing like the onset of grey, miserable autumn to make us start dreaming of white sand beaches and cocktails at sunset. So obviously we decided to cheer ourselves up by hunting out some fabulous new swimwear collections for the winter sun season. Here, we’ve focused on a selection of great brands for D plus cup sizes, with styles that offer the support you need to look stylish and stay comfortable while enjoying your holiday.
Fuller figure lingerie and swimwear brand Elomi has a simply stunning swimwear range this season. The whole collection has a strong retro vibe, and this Rara tankini with its ruffled tiered hem has a distinctly Fifties feel – and the classic red and white polka dots will never go out of fashion. The tankini can also be worn as a halterneck and all Elomi’s swimwear is designed to coordinate with its Isis swim bra for added support.
Buy: sizes 16-26, £65 from Leia Lingerie.
The skirted bikini, like to swimdress, has become a popular style in the last few seasons, and it’s perfect for those days when you just don’t feel like baring as much skin. We love the Erica skirted bikini from Panache Swim because it has adjustable ruched sides so you can choose the perfect coverage for you, plus it comes in a cool, on-trend monochrome print. The bandeau top is also a great shape for fuller busts and comes with optional straps.
Buy: sizes 30-38 D-GG, £59 for the set from Asos.com.
We discovered fabulous new fuller bust swimwear brand Hoola earlier this year, and right now you can pick up a bargain on Hoola swimwear in the brand’s sale. Our pick is this stunning midnight blue swimsuit. The bandeau top and halter straps are really flattering while the centre ruched panel will help slim your waist. Totally stunning!
Buy: sizes 30-38 D-G, £70 (reduced from £100) from Hoola.
If it’s a tropical look you’re after, then the Dominica collection from Fantasie should be your first stop. This gorgeous print would cheer up even the dullest winter day, and the line includes a huge range of shapes so you can mix and match to find the most flattering option for your shape. We adore this bandeau top and adjustable shorts, but there’s also a tankini, one-shoulder swimsuit, balcony top, twist bandeau top, tie side brief, mid rise brief and a lovely, floaty kaftan.
Buy: 32-38 D-G, £66.50 for the set from Leia Lingerie.
We love stripes on our swimwear, and this stylish Manhattan bikini from Pour Moi? comes in a striking colour combination. Choose from a moulded bikini top with halterneck tie or a padded underwired bikini top, and team it with these flattering fold-over briefs. Perfect for relaxing by the pool.
Buy: sizes 32-38 B-G, £46 for the set from Figleaves.com.
