Fantasie’s Up to 38J and 40GG Mahe Swimwear Collection

Fantasie has excellent bra sized swimwear, often available in band sizes 30 to 40 and D to larger, usually G, cup sizes. Their new Mahe collection has an underwire bikini top that comes in cup sizes up to J!

The Mahe print is a vintage Hawaiian inspired hand painted leaf print on a muted black background. I have always been a fan of their rich colors and prints and have worn their swimwear, and wished they made more styles in larger than GG cup sizes.

So I am really glad to see this. If they ever make some in cup sizes up to JJ, I hope to be able to afford them by then!

Fantasie’s Mahe Swimwear Collection

This underwire large cup size swimwear collection is available in three bikini tops, one plunge tankini top and a high waist and mid-rise swim briefs so far at Bigger Bras, which is where clicking on these pictures below will take you.

This is the full cup underwire bikini top in this collection, pictured with the high waist swim brief.

This style features the gathered cup style of Fantasie’s popular Versailles swimwear collection! Currently these swim tops are available in sizes 30D to H, 32 to 38D to J and 40D to GG.

This is the lightly padded balcony underwire bikini top, currently available in sizes 32 to 36D to H, 38D to GG and 40D to G.

  Fantasie Mahe Swimwear Top Bikini Underwire Balcony Padded Style 6207 

The bandeau bikini tops in this collection also provide lightly padded underwire support, but with removable halter straps. These are currently available in sizes 30 to 38D to G.

  Fantasie Mahe Swimwear Top Bikini Underwire Bandeau Twist Front Convertible Scarf Ties Style 6205 

These underwire plunge halter tankini tops have adjustable side ties! They also have a back clasp that creates a nice key-hole. These are available in sizes 32 to 38D to H!

  Fantasie Mahe Swimwear Top Tankini Underwire Halter Plunge Adjustable Sides Scarf Ties Style 6208 

While you could mix and match these swim tops with solid bikini bottoms you might already have, they do have these high waist swim bottoms available in sizes S to XXL. These have gathered sides.

  Fantasie Mahe Swimwear Bottom Brief High Waist Gathered Sides Style 6210 

The mid-rise bikini bottoms have a loop detail you can just make out at their side seams in this picture. These are available in sizes XS to XXL.

  Fantasie Mahe Swimwear Bottom Brief Mid Rise Style 6209 

While I am not finding this collection at Amazon yet, at some point in the future they may have this. They do have a good selection of Fantasie Swimwear too!

Hypnotic, Curvy Kate’s New Up to 40J – 42,44G Swimwear line

Curvy Kate not only has large cup size swimwear in bra sizes for smaller band sizes, such as 28J, they also have bra sized swimwear for full figure women! One of the things I like about them. The other is the visual impact of many of Curvy Kate swimwear styles.

This new Hypnotic collection might also go well with their new, solid black Jetty swimwear line, which I will show the swim skirt from at the end of this post. Solid black swimwear is just one kind of style the chevron pattern of this Hypnotic line might mix and match well with!

Curvy Kate’s Hypnotic DD+ Swimwear Collection

The balcony underwire tankini top in this line provide some light padding, multi-part underwire cups and flexible side boning. These swim tops have visible vertical seams, restricted stretch adjustable straps and hidden hook and eye bra type back closure.
Currently these tankini tops are available in sizes 30 to 40D to J and 44 and 44D to G at Her Room.

Freya’s Geometric Lace Up to HH Cup Swimwear

Freya’s Sundance swimwear line comes, mostly, in black and white underwire bikini, tankini and cut-out back one piece styles. Some of these styles have sweetheart, plunge and others high necklines. To go with these Freya Swim has skirted swim briefs, Rio side-tie and hipster bikini bottoms!

I like the geometric lace being a bit different from all the crochet styles we have seen this year!

I am finding mostly the same styles, in nearly, (but not quite), all sizes and prices in this Freya Swim collection at both Her Room and Bigger Bras.

Her Room’s swimwear collections are on each styles page, (lower right hand side), and easier to view. They also have their VIPoints Loyalty program as another reason to shop there. I have enjoyed shopping at both of these online stores.

Freya’s Sundance Sweetheart and Plunge Swimwear Styles

Freya’s Underwire Sweetheart Bikini Tops provide thinly lined underwire cups with side boning. The lace over lay is has vertical seaming. These bikini tops have adjustable stretch straps and plastic back clasp.

Click on the word ‘More’ below this picture to view it at Her Room. You can see the rest of this collection available there at the lower right side of its page. Her Room and Bigger Bras both have these in black and white in sizes 30 to 36D to HH and 38D to G.

Price: $68.00

The Sundance Underwire Plunge Tankini Top’s straps can be worn cross-back or shoulder style. This style has lightly lined underwire cups with side boning. Its bottom sweep is unlined and its stretch straps are adjustable. The plastic back clasp creates a slight keyhole.

Apparently this style only comes in black, which both stores have. Her Room in sizes 30 to 36D to GG and 38D to G. Bigger Bras has this style in sizes 30 to 38D to G.

Great for petite and women with short torsos, the Bandless Halter Bikini tops have a plunge neckline and high center. This style has lightly lined underwire cups, tie-halter straps and plastic back clasp. Its lace over lay also has vertical seaming.
Both stores have these underwire bikini tops in black and white in sizes 30 to 34C to FF, 36C to F and 38C to E.

Sundance High Neckline Styles

The links below these high neckline styles will take you to them at Bigger Bras. They have their white and black versions listed separately. Once there you can see some of the rest of this collection at the bottom of each one’s page.
It is easier to view the whole collection there from their Freya Swim page. You can find that by clicking on D+ Swim and sorting by Brand.

The crop top in this collection has seamed, contour, lightly lined underwire cups with vertical darts in their lace overlay. This is a tie-halter style with plastic back clasp.

Bigger Bras has these underwire high-neck crop tops in sizes 28 to 36D to FF and 38D to F. Her Room has the same style in sizes 28D to F, 30 to 36D to FF and 38D to F.

I am showing the black one piece because the back cut out shows up even better than the white. Bigger Bras has the white as well, listed separately, in sizes 30 to 38C to FF. Her Room has these one piece styles listed together in sizes 30 to 36D to FF. This is an underwire style with slightly padded cups, side boning on a built-in shelf bra for additional support! This one piece has self-tie halter straps with plastic back clasp.

Both of these stores have so many beautiful large cup size swimwear styles by Freya and other makers now.

I would browse either, or both, by your swimwear and bra sizes, just in case they have some excellent steals in your size. It is Swimwear Clearance season now too!

New Up to GG and HH Cup Swimwear by Free

Bravissimo does have the underwire bikini and tankini tops and swim bottoms left from their Halkidiki collection I posted about here last September.

Since then I have not gotten around to posting the newer styles they have by Free in 2016.

So here are two out of three of the 2016 Free swimwear lines available at Bravissimo!

Free’s Montego Bay Underwire Tankini and Bikini styles

So far Free’s Montego Bay underwire tankini top has nothing but 5 star reviews! It is still available in sizes 30DD to HH, 32 to 34D to HH, 36D to G and 38D to E, and G to HH.

This self-tie halter tankini has a concealed bra back and is lightly padded for shaping and support. Reviewers mention its support and one even says she wears hers strapless!


The plunge halter underwire bikini top in this Free collection also has self-tie halter neck, but with a back clasp. So far this style has no reviews and is available in sizes 30 to 38D to GG, but low stock in a couple of those.


Bravissimo has the fold swim briefs pictured with the tankini and the other bikini bottom pictured with the bikini top in this line in sizes XS to XL.

Riviera Maya Tankini and Bikini styles by Free

Free’s Riviera Maya underwire tankini top had wider adjustable shoulder straps and hidden bra back with lightly padded underwire cups bust support. So far this style has one, excellent, review!

If you click on its picture you will, currently, find it available in sizes 30DD to HH, 32 to 38D to HH, except size 30FF and 36GG, which are already out of stock.


The Riviera Maya underwire bikini top also has adjustable shoulder straps, but with back clasp.
This style has an adjustable gathered cup style, letting You Choose the coverage You want. Currently these bikini tops are available in sizes 30 to 38D to HH, low stock in a few


These bikini tops are getting mixed reviews, regarding fit… I would read some of those before purchasing, or try it on in a Bravissimo store if you can!

Bravissimo has the side tie swim bottom pictured with the bikini top in sizes XS to XL and the one pictured with the tankini top in sizes XS to L.

The third Free Swimwear style available at Bravissimo is a blue and white striped underwire bikini tops and bottoms, up to HH cup sizes as well.

Hopefully I will have more time to keep up with posting these and other new styles in the near future!

Elomi’s Surfs Up, E to H, Bikini Swimwear

So far I am only finding Elomi’s Surfs Up underwire bikini and one style of swim bottom at Bigger Bras.

I have waited a bit before showing this here, for more styles in this line to show up at Bigger Bras, or some other store and so far… This is it. So here is a look at

Elomi’s Surfs Up Bikini Top and Bottom

Bigger Bras has this plunge underwire bikini top in the 34 to 44E to H size range and the mid-rise swim bottoms you can see the top of in this picture in sizes 16 to 26!

This bikini top has wide set adjustable straps and molded cups for shaping and support.

This is just a picture of the swim briefs, with a nice back view included!

I am sorry I have not been able to post here as often as I had intended to this summer.
Hopefully our households health issues will resolve soon and I can post here more consistently…

Until then I highly recommend Bravissimo’s recently started swimwear sale, (browsed by size for speed of finding what is left in yours!), as well as Her Room’s and Bare Necessities’ swimwear sales.
