Extra 29% Off D to J Swimwear styles Today Only

Today Only we can enjoy DD+ Swimwear styles such as some of Fantasie’s Cayman collection, Freya’s Venice Beach, Mardi Gras, Panache’s Lucille line and more at

Bare Necessities’ Extra 29% Off Leap Year Event! Use Code TAKE29 for One Day Only!.

Sizes are limited, but we can short by our bra sizes, which is where I got the bra cups mentioned in the title of this post from.

As an example: Freya’s Tootsie bandeau swim top is now down to $47, but also down to sizes 30D and 30G and the swim short its pictured with is down to $32, but only sizes L and XL are left. So browse by your size soon for the best deals in your size!

As with many sale departments, more swim bottoms seem to be available.
Which made me think this would be a great chance to get beautiful prints in bikini bottoms to go with tops we already have, for less!

This Bare Necessities leap year day discount also includes more than just swimwear.
Her Room has a similar discount, but apparently theirs does not include swimwear.

Up to G and J Cup Cleo by Panache Swimwear

Bravissimo has some new bikini swimwear styles by Cleo by Panache. Unfortunately they only have a bikini top and some swim briefs in these two new Cleo collections.

I will post more of these two beautiful swimwear collections here if I should find more in the months to come at Bravissimo and other stores.

Suki Plunge Bandeau Bikini Top and Swim Briefs

The beautiful new Cleo swimwear style is based on their highly rated strapless Koko bras. Similar to Freya’s Deco Swimwear being based on their much loved Deco bras. Except Cleo’s Koko bras are hard to find…

These underwire bikini top comes with removable, adjustable shoulder straps and provides lightly padded underwire support.

If you click on this picture of it now you can find it available in sizes 28DD to G and 30 to 38D to G for about $50 at Bravissimo, but low stock already in a couple of sizes…


If you scroll down once at Bravissimo you will find another bikini bottom and the frill one it is picture above with, for about $27, in sizes 8 to 18.

Cleo’s Lucille Navy / Pink Bikini Separates

Last year Cleo’s popular Lucille swimwear icon came in striped prints. This seems to be their new 2016 print for their Lucille collection.

Her Room has this balconette bikini top for $64, but if you click on this picture of it you can find it at Bravissimo for about $45 in sizes 28E to H and 30 to 38D to J.


So far Bravissimo only has the bikini brief it’s pictured with in sizes 8 to 18 for about $25. Her Room has this style for $36.

We can find last year’s Lucille striped print styles nicely priced, new with tags at eBay stores, if you prefer that look!

Bravissimo’s price break on many large cup swimwear styles usually make their standard delivery fee, (about $11 USD), worth it!

Panache Portofino Up to HH Cup Swimwear Collection

I am finding Panache’s Portofino bikini separates at both Her Room and Bare Necessities at the same prices in nearly the same sizes so far. So far, only Bare Necessities has the one piece in this collection, which is pictured near the bottom of this post and comes in sizes up to 36HH and 38G!

I am hoping to see a tankini in this Panache collection, but really do not know if they make one…

I love the crisp blue with white accents as well as the folded fabric accents in the white contrast band part of most of these 50s retro swimwear styles!

Portofino Underwire Bikini Separates

They both have the same prices, Her Room tend to have the most details, which I appreciate. Most of these are just pictures of these styles you can currently find at Her Room whose link is in the column to your right.

This is the molded balconnet underwire bikini top in sizes 30E to FF and 32 to 38D to H!

This bikini top gives us lightly padded, contoured, underwire cups overlaid with fabric which, I feel, creates an elegant effect. Its wide set, comfy looking straps are adjustable in the back!

Here it the above bikini top pictured with adjustable swim skirt in this line. Her Room has it in sizes S to 2XL.

Bare Necessities has it and the classic brief swim bottom below, in sizes S to 3XL.

Her Room has the underwire Bandeau bikini top in this collection in sizes 30E to FF and 32 to 38D to G.

Its cups are similar to the above balconette style, except it also has side boning for extra support! Naturally it comes with removable straps, which can be worn cross back or straight shoulder style too.

This is the Classic swim brief in this collection, which you will find in sizes XS to 2XL at Her Room.


Up to HH Cup One Piece Underwire Portofino Swimsuit

I think the one piece in this Portofino collection might be moving very fast
Currently we can find these at Bare Necessities, (whose link is in the right column of this blog), in sizes:
  • 30E, FF and G
  • 32DD to G
  • 34DD, F, FF and G
  • all sizes 36D to HH!
  • 38DD to G 

This style features unlined underwire cups with fully adjustable straps. The back strap, while not adjustable, creates a nice keyhole effect!

If you click on the picture of the one piece Portofino swimsuit, and scroll down, you can find most of the rest of this swimwear collection available at Bare Necessities.

I believe you might just have to go to Panache Swimwear once there to view it all.

Possibly other stores will have this soon and I will post them here if / or as I find them.

Curvy Kate’s up to H Cup Aloha Swimwear Collection

Her Room has Curvy Kate’s Aloha underwire bikini and tankini tops and the skirted bikini bottom to go with these styles so far. The tankini top comes in sizes up to 40H, the plunge bikini top up to 38H and the bandeau up to 38G if you are looking for full figure underwire swimwear!

All of swim tops in this new Curvy Kate Aloha collection provide underwire with side boning bust support.

All of their cups have a ruched fabric overlay, creating a beautiful gathered cup effect similar to some of Fantasie’s popular DD+ swimwear styles!

All are lightly padded for shape and support. All also have elastic, adjustable straps, for comfort and support!

Aloha Underwire Bandeau and Plunge Bikini Tops

This bandeau style can be worn as a halter, as shown, but apparently also comes with removable / adjustable shoulder straps, which can be worn cross back. Of course, you can wear it strapless too!

These are just pictures of these styles you can currently find at Her Room whose link is in the column to your right.

You can find it available in sizes 28 to 34D to H, 36D to GG and 38D to G at Her Room.

This skirted bikini bottom shown above is, so far, the only swim bottom they have to go with these Aloha styles. It is available in sizes XS to 3XL!

This is the balcony plunge bikini top now you will find it available in sizes 28 to 38D to H!

Aloha Underwire Tankini Top

This beautiful balcony styled tankini top is available in all sizes 30 to 40D to H!

Some of these styles are shown, in other images, at Her Room with two other bikini bottoms, which I hope they have in soon!

Some 2016 Sunsets Up to H Cup Swimwear Styles

Sunsets swim separates come in sizes that pretty much explain bra sister sizing, ( Sister Sizing is shown at the bottom of Bigger Bras’ Bra Fitting page), at a glance.

Here is a look at some of Sunsets’ 2016 underwire bikini and tankini tops currently available at Bigger Bras! If you are looking for full figure underwire swimwear, you might want to consider Sunsets!

 Sunsets Enchanted Garden Swimwear Top Bikini Style 16-ENCH-59EFGH 

These are just a few of Sunsets’ bikini and tankini top style in this post. They have a wide assortment of swim tops and bottoms in a myriad of prints each year well worth browsing!

Two Sunsets 77 Twist-Front, V-Neck, Underwire Tankini Tops

I believe I have seen this Sunsets underwire tankini in a wide array of prints at Bigger Bras since I first went to Bigger Bras swimwear department years ago.

This style is popular as a swimwear style and I seem to recall some reviewers saying these are also great for trips to water parks, hanging out at home and just a great summer top!

These two beautiful twist-front, V-neck underwire tankini tops both have adjustable straps.

Click on this picture of Sunsets’ Palmera swim top now to find it in sizes: 
  • 32E/30F/28G
  • 34E/32F/30G
  • 36E/34F/32G
  • 38E/36F/34G
  • 40E/38F/36G
  • 40F/38G/36H
  • 40G/38H

 Sunsets Palmera Swimwear Top Tankini Underwire Style 16-PARA-77EFGH

  • 40E/38F/36G
  • 40F/38G/36H
  • 40G/38H

Sunsets Sunburst Swimwear Top Tankini Style 16-SUNB-77EFGH 

Sunsets has a wide selection of beautiful prints in these styles every year.

While you can find Sunsets swimwear at Bare Necessities and I believe other stores, I think Bigger Bras has the widest selection of their swimwear every year!

Up to G Cup Chantelle Swimwear

I was pleasantly surprised to see swimwear by Chantelle and up to G cup sizes as well! Looking around, apparently their swimwear has been available for quite a while.

At some places, extremely expensive, at others, such has Bare Necessities, where these styles are from below, about as pricey as the Prima Donna bra sized swimwear styles I recently posted about here, over $100 for a bikini top… Here is a look at

Chantelle’s Desert Lodge and Gazelle Up to G Cup Swimwear

If you click on this picture of their Desert Lodge Underwire Balconette Bikini top you will find it available at Bare Necessities in sizes 32 to 38C to G,

(please check out the Cup Size Note part of this part below).

This bikini top gives us adjustable stretch straps and a non-adjustable band.
 icon icon 

Their Gazelle underwire balconette is available in sizes 32 to 38D to G.

 icon icon 

Bare Necessities has several swim briefs to go with each of these styles in the XS to XXL size range.

They also have a convertible, (straight to cross back), one piece in the Gazelle collection in sizes 32 to 38C to F.

They do have push up and bandeau bikini tops in these two Chantelle swimwear lines, but Bare Necessities only has them in sizes 32 to 38B, C and D,
which I figure you are not looking for if you are reading this so…

Chantelle Cup Sizes Compared to Panache, Fantasie, Curvy Kate and Others

If you normally wear Chantelle, this is fine, but be aware: A Chantelle G cup size might well be comparable to a Fantasie, Freya, Elomi, Curvy Kate and Panache F cup size.

I am getting this info from Bigger Bras Cup Size Comparison Chart , and will go into this issue, (which would be true of Prima Donna and other swimwear as well…

If you are considering purchasing these styles, I would check out the cup size issue with Bare Necessities before you do.

More on this later…

New Freya Deco D to GG Plunge Swimwear

Bravissimo has two new styles from Freya Swim’s sleek and beautiful Deco Swimwear collection!

They still have the plunge underwire bikini top in aquamarine, black and some sizes left in its neon pink color too!

Freya Deco Swimwear for 2016 So Far

If you click on the picture of this underwire tankini top now you will find it, (already low stock, gulp!), in sizes 28DD to GG, 30 to 36D to GG and 38D to G at Bravissimo!

This swim top has molded underwire cups and adjustable straps with concealed back fastener.


If you go to the tankini top in this style you will find the side tie bikini bottom it is pictured with in, by scrolling down once you get to Bravissimo, in sizes XS to XL.

This is the one piece version of this plunge swimwear style. It too is low stock in a few sizes already of its 30 to 36D to GG and 38D to G size range.

It provides the same bust support, straps and back closure style as the tankini top in this style!


I hope we see more Freya Swimwear based on their Deco line!



Playing around with this Amazon tool below to see if they can show us comparable  swimwear they might have:

Prima Donna DD+ Swimwear

New at for Much Less at eBay stores

I normally feel that the Freya, Panache, Fantasie and other DD+ swimwear styles I post about here are pricey enough and have over looked Prima Donna and other brands where the cost of a bikini top starts at over $100.

Then I saw Prima Donna’s new yellow sunshine print in their Pool Party collection at Her Room and decided, a woman can, and perhaps should, dream! Then I check out their available styles for much less at eBay stores…Reason to Dream indeed!

Prima Donna’s Pool Party C to H Cup Swimwear

This is just what is available in the new yellow sunshine print so far at Her Room.

Her Room has these in sizes 32D to G and 34 to 40C to G. Once there you can scroll down, looking to your right, to view the rest of this beautiful swimwear collection they currently have.

These are just pictures of these styles you can currently find at Her Room whose link is in the column to your right.

This underwire bikini top provides lightly padded contour cups with a fabric overlay. This swimwear style can be worn with straps wide set, (regular shoulder straps), cross back or strapless!

The swim brief it is pictured with is available in both prints in sizes S to XL.

This is the 3 part, full cup underwire bikini, still only available in the candy crush print in this collection there.

This underwire bikini top is available in sizes 32D to H and 34 to 40C to H and has side support panels! Owing to certain bras I have enjoyed over the years, I am a big fan of side support panels!

iconHer Room does have the swim brief it is pictured with, in sizes S to XL, in both the candy crush and yellow sunshine print.

They also have this swimsuit cover up, for just $83, in both prints in O/S. There is not small temptation on my part to look for this pareo later at eBay stores, just for the fabric! Love this print in yellow!

As stated at the beginning of this post, the only reason I have shied away from showing Prima Donna swimwear styles here is the price. In the above;
  • $131, each, for the convertible and full cup bikini tops
  • $64 for the side shirred bikini bottom shown with the strapless one above
  • $78 for the swim bottom shown with the full cup bikini top. 

Then I found…

Prima Donna DD+ Swimwear for Much Less

Using this Prima Donna Swimwear, New with Tags, at Buy it Now prices link this morning I found, (for some reason Juicy Couture too swimwear), Prima Donna:
  • One Piece styles, often $298 at Her Room starting at $43, but more often $196
  • Tankini tops, usually $164 to $181 full price, at $30
  • Bikini tops, often $131 or more for $91 
On the first page of these, (currently 414), styles, using the above link to go to Prima Donna swimwear at eBay stores.

I am especially partial to their Cuba Underwire Palm Island Tankini Top in size 34F I found using the above link, (on the first page!), for just $30!

This is just a picture below, use the links above to view these styles at eBay stores.

Granted Prima Donna styles shown at truly great prices there are few, this page might well be worth browsing often for excellent steals on these large cup swimwear styles!

They are rather pricey.
Should I continue to show Prima Donna, and begin to show other pricey brands here as well?

What do you think?

Perhaps more later…
