I own 3 Victoria Secret bras in size 34DD and they are the only bras I own that actually fit me perfectly. Thanks for the heads up. If I'm able to get a suit there, I'll just go to the store & try on first.

Be careful with Victoria's Secret. I bought a suit there that was supposed to be my bra cup size and it felt like it was a cup size too small. I was afraid of having a nip slip! It could have just been that particular suit. Also, everywhere else I am a L/XL on top, so I bought a swim suit top in large from VS and it only covered half my boob. My husband called it obscene, lol. I think your best bet would be a website for athletic suits or possibly a surf shop. My former sister-in-law was large on top and only wore bra-top swim suits, and she found one at a random surf shop. Good luck!

I just found a few suits at Landsend.com that let you pick the bust size and then the suit size. First time I have really seen this - they are pricing but I'm thinking I may try this - just hope they are supportive. I'll check the Victoria Secret site too - haven't looked there yet.

Most other sites/suits I have found you have to order at least a size 14 for it to fit a DD chest size and those are too big to offer support for me.

Thanks again for everyone's help!

I'm a size 4-6 and wear bra size 34DD, I really need support. When I get the money I'll get a supportive swimsuit from Victoria Secret.

I buy my clothes at onestopplus.com. They have a large selection of swimsuits.

I was blessed to find a well-fitting suit at a Big5 Sporting goods store a couple of years ago. I believe that suits that are suitable for athletes will be the ones that provide the best support.
I hope you find what you need!

Thank you - all the Just my Size suits start at a size 14 and I don't need that big for the rest of it - that's the problem I'm finding with most suits that do address the bust issue. Thanks again!

Hoping some California People may be able to help me out here. I am looking to find a one-piece bathing suit that is possible sized and secured in the top like a bra so there is adequate support. I am larger chested and have a very hard time finding a suit that is large enough in the chest but not too large everywhere else. The usual Med-Large- extra large sizing just doesn't work. Seems like there should be a way to buy/order one that is very secure to hold the top in place and fit every where else without having to go to a 2 piece and just purchase 2 different sizes. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
