We tried affordable swimwear for women with big breasts and heres our verdict

If you have breasts that go over a D cup, you likely know the struggle of shopping for clothes that fit properly across your chest.

To make matters worse, the items that usually do fit well can be very expensive, especially when it comes to lingerie and swimwear.

Many high street brands are yet to offer more inclusive styles for women with bigger breasts, but on online retailers are rapidly expanding their lines to suit different body types that are both affordable and stylish.

But what about the fit? We tried four different swimwear options to find out.

Blubella More Ionian Swimsuit, £46

I love the design of this Bluebella swimsuit – the intricate sheer lace detailing makes it look less like swimwear and more like a sexy bodysuit.

Had I been able to wear it to the beach or pool, it would have definitely garnered some attention.

However, sadly I was left sorely disappointed by the fit and wasnt able to take it for a test swim.

The bottom half fit perfectly and was very flattering, but the middle section just isnt long enough – both of the were too far down on my body, making my boobs look saggy.

It comes with adjustable straps, but this made no difference.

Admittedly I have a long upper body, so perhaps it would work better on someone with a shorter one?

Available from 30DD to 38G (some sizes are sold out).

Pour Moi Mini Maxi Bikini, £38

The main thing I love about the Pour Moi bikini is that it is very jazzy; the colours are really bright and the print is lovely.

Its very different to the type of thing I would usually pick (high-waisted black bottoms and a plain top, which if I move too much, I will pop out of).

There was certainly no chance of my boobs making a bid for freedom in this bikini top as it came up a little bit high.

This could be a great fit for women who are in need of a bit more coverage or who want to jump off the side of a cliff without exposing themselves, but as the most activity I will be doing on holiday is eating copious amounts of pasta, its not a top I think I will be wearing much.

The bottoms, on the other hand, were delightful – and there is a high rise style for women who prefer that.

The best way to describe this bikini would be pretty, but solid.

Available from 32D to 42G.

Boux Avenue Sierra bikini, £36

Im used to ordering in size 16 and above because of my large boobs, as Ive never really had the money to spend on a luxury, high-end bikini before.

My eye roll was probably audible when I got asked to try a new bikini made for busty women – believe me, Ive heard it all before. Its like when you get something spicy at the supermarket when its mild AF.

This leopard bikini from Boux Avenue was such a relief, I tell you.

I tried it on and not only was it super light, but it was genuinely supportive and flattering. How can it be all of those things at once?

Im desperate to try it after having had a swim on a beach and see just how light it is. Just waiting for someone to send me on holiday to try it out.

Available in 32B to 36F (some sizes are sold out).
