Beachwear for small breasts


It can be challenging to buy flattering swimwear if you have small breasts. If you feel very self-conscious when you're wearing a swimsuit or bikini on the beach (because all around you are full rounded well-endowed ladies), keep in mind that TRUE sexiness comes with confidence! Be proud of your little assets, and people around you will sense it too. With that said, there are plenty ways to flatter your small breasts in a bikini or swimsuit. Here are some tips for swim wear that will make your chest look fuller:

  • Wear a bikini top/swimsuit with ruffles and other types of decorations - it will create the illusion of a fuller chest. If you already bought a bikini or swimsuit, you can always go to a hobby-lobby or another hobby or craft store to buy some ruffles, buttons, or any other type of decoration and do it yourself! It will make your chest appear fuller, ánd you will have a creative and very unique bikini/swimsuit!
  • Wear a layered bikini top - the more layers, the fuller it seems.
  • triangle-bikini-top slook great on small breasts! The smaller the triangles, the bigger your breasts look.
  • Wear patterns. Smaller patterns are better than large patterns.
  • Wear horizontal stripes - they make the eyes go from left to right: making you look 'wider' visually!
  • White will make you look fuller, black will make you look flatter.
  • Stand up straight.
  • Stop comparing yourself to other women. It will only make you feel insecure. Instead, be proud of who you are, and wear your bikini with confidence! That's way sexier than a pair of fake boobs.

    Yes I agree! Triangle bikini tops work best with my small breasts. :) I usually get the ones that make them have more of a shape too.

    Can you guys tell me what brand of swimwear makes the smallest small you’ve found? I’m tiny (5′, 95lbs, AA cup) and even an XS from some designers is too big. It’s so frustrating!

    I bought my wife some of the wicked weasel suits and their “micro-minimus” tops fit her smaller bustline perfect and show them off much better then the normal sized suits.

    the distraction swimwear is the best one for small breasts. it makes me look 2 cup sizes bigger, which is exactly what I want when I go to the beach! I wear their bras too. They do the same.

    For the best range of gel filled bikinis on the planet, which will increase your confidence on the beach, you really must check out They have a super range of gel bikinis!

    I have small breast and have recently found some swimsuits from victorias secret with a small amount of padding. There are some really good sales going on right now (some as low as $6.99). my personal favorite is this one. you can pick a stripe top which enlarges them or polkadot or you can mix and match. i hope it will help someone.

    I have constant conversations with myself about how different i get treated because I’m a little petite small boned skinny female. This website – including this helpful article has made me very happy to be able to relate to other girls/women out there … sometimes conversations with myself are not enough.

    On a day to day basis i (and most of you i assume) have people commenting on my weight, saying throw off comments like “You mustn’t eat ANYTHING”, people treating me like a little girl instead of a 20year old because i am smaller, girls disliking me instantly because i am not fat like them (this is a big assumption but it has been quite obvious on many occasion i deem this true).

    Ahhhh … anyway i don’t mean to blab so much but this is the first time i have been to this website and i have never seen any like it and i am very grateful.

    Thank you – and i will be more confident bikini shopping :P

      I can relate to a lot of what you wrote there. My best advice is to remember your own worth as a young woman and let that build your confidence. People who are mean are insecure with themselves, and it’s up to them to figure themselves out. Stand up for yourself and don’t allow people to make you feel bad. Good luck!

    Well I will just have to go to Victoria secret(:

    Trying to find a nice bikini for small breasts can be a pain, I should know (I have an AA-AAA cup)… I’m currently writing a blog about living with small breasts, and I actually just discussed the bikini issue the other day. Take a look and share your ideas at:

    Oh my goodness! There’s a store that does just this stuff! Have you guys heard of Sugarchilli Swimwear? They’re a couple of Aussie girls who’ve designed bikinis specifically for smaller busts. I think if you google them you’ll find them.

    how ’bout, i’m happy with small breasts that aren’t going to be around my belly button when i’m 35. i’m not trying to make them look bigger, or hide the fact that they’re smal, they look fine. how ’bout where do i get a swim suit that fits me?

  24. Posted April 26, 2011 at 7:12 pm | Permalink

    I am Angry! I am chubby and it shows offf more because I am not even 5 feet (im 14) I am flat but I can’t find bathing suits that fit me because the bigger size i get the bigger cups :( ew.

    Triangle tops don’t suit me. I’m tiny/flat chested (32A) and skinny. It will look like I’m an ironing board ready to iron some triangles. Ruffles don’t seem to help. I’ve done my shopping. I prefer inserts like push-ups are for practically everyday. I haven’t gone to the beach wearing a bikini after seeing all the other women (Bigger than an A cup) wearing the same stuff looking far more better. It’s intimidating when guys and girls just see it more acceptable for a flat chested women to not be at the beach wearing a bikini too!

    • Posted May 19, 2011 at 9:45 pm | Permalink

      Ann, please come to San Diego, and go to the beach, so I can see how pretty you are with your 32A breasts. You would see at least one guy looking at you with nothing but admiration.

        Though you are from America where all the boob obsession is, that makes me dread the thought of going there. There won’t be any admiration for me at all. I’m from Australia and I’ll hang my bikini in the closet where it belongs.

    i dont mind my small breast-ive learned to accept them more or less throught the years-ill admit i still have to work on it now and then-im 46-1001bs-there are lots of bakini pushup but i do not want a bakini-i would like a tankini-max cleavage has the ugliset tankinis-victoria secet is too flimsy-and most of the tankinis start at 34a.forget a swimdress thay dont even exist for my size-most start at sizr 8 and up your lucky of you find a 6-im a 2 at most.sweet chilli sounds good -but the selection sucks-beggars cant be choosers!i own an inground pool but have never swam in it.i refuse to wear shorts and tshirt as i would like a swimsuit to put on like everyone else.all i want is a bathing suit in a long enough tankini or swimdess that fits my body and boobs and give them a little lift-i want options and choices and i think i and others like deserve that.there are hundreds of website that tell you what type of bathing suit you need but hardly or none in the articles of your options and choices,because there is none-ok im done!

    Girls, your smaller breasts are very appealing to me as a man. Id love to see a small or no breast woman on the beach! I absolutely love the tiny bikinis on your incredibly fit and toned figures. Hope you will smile back on the beach :)

    well the comments and insults never go away. people treat me different as well. im 47 yrs old ,five foot five and weigh 100 lbs.(ive always been this way) ive had 3 children im a 32a. i never get treated like a 47 year old. i could tell you a few things but ill give you an example. last year when i was at a park for our canada day festivities ,i was browsing at all the vendors stuff while my husband was at the washroom- a lady whose table i stopped to look at , suddenly just came out and said to me, omg your so small do you even eat food.i looked at this women and said to her ,you think ive never heard that one before-really? i told her i was 47 years old and asked her again ,you really think i havnt heard that before-she was kind of taken aback by my reaction and said oh im sorry i didnt mean to offend you, then proceeded to ask me if my husband was that small. im mean really? i just shook my head at her and walked away. people are constantly angry at me and say whatever , even stangers. i worked at walmart in the ladies department and i cant tell you how many women got very angry with me-i even had a lady shake clothing in my face. its like imnot even human. being small and small breated has been a lifelong nightmare-luckily, husband # 2 loves me just the way i am. and im not going to appologize to anyone anymore for just being me.

      Ellen: People are crazy,you listen to that old saying women have,goes like you can’t be too rich or too skinny,but the people that crank on you are just jealous,i mean come on what the hell are they thinking?Why comment?Does it make them feel better? When i was a young man(i’m 54) i was a stick on legs so i heard all the insults from a man’s perspective and wow was that tough.My asshole brother used to say;Who beat you to the table?………..Everybody! He stopped laughing the day i got to be 180lbs of solid muscle and a trained martial artist and kicked his ass all the way across town.Brent

    I am 19 and I have always worn bikini tops that have a more childish look because they have always seemed more me. The ones I usually go for are the ones that drape down to cover more of the torso as well which I almost always pair with a home made skirt + bottom set. I am not an overly athletic person and tend to be mistaken for a young high school student, especially around my well endowed friends. That being said my boy loves how I look in my bikini because he is one of the many men who prefers the mid to small size range when it comes to a women’s breasts and most of my other guy friends are the same way. Do not feel like you need to hide your small boobs, men like them because they are cute and perky and make you look younger. Oh and also for those of you having trouble finding bikinis that you like in the store sewing them yourself is a great option, I have a few lovely ones that a friend made for me that I will have to wear this summer.

    This is great information, and I have to agree the most important thing about wearing a swimsuit is to wear it with CONFIDENCE!!! Most people feel uncomfortable getting into a swimsuit and it shows. And don’t be afraid to mix it up!!! If you love the top of one suit and the bottom of another, GO WITH IT!!! If it makes you feel better, stronger and more confident it will look better, stronger and more confident!
