The Best Swim Tops for Small and Large Busts

No matter your shape, no matter what society says your size may be, we believe you are beautiful just the way you are! When you are confident in your swimsuit there is nothing more breathtakingly gorgeous than confidence on a woman. That said, when you are small busted or large-busted, there are no doubt concerns you may have about your swimwear—concerns all well-founded given how the swimsuit industry still often mistakenly believes we women are one-size-fits-all.

Some swimsuit designers create wear that doesn't accommodate for the fact some women need larger bottoms and smaller tops, or larger tops and smaller bottoms. The ability to wear whatever swimsuit style you like, regardless of style, is what we're all about. We want you to mix and match or find a suit that works for you no matter what.

We have a gorgeous array of swimwear for women, designed by women who wanted to tackle these issues women face in selecting swimsuits, so today we'd love to be able to help you in choosing the best swim tops for small and large busts!

Small Bust Swim Tops

Having a small bust is nothing to be embarrassed about! We think it's an asset! Don't obsess about the tops you can't fill but consider all the wonderful styles you can wear without worry of slippage or overexposure! Along with those advantages, you can easily skip worrying about underwires or any extra padding, too.

Some styles of swim tops that you just might fall in love with that we have available to consider:

Halters: A halter top is a great choice to look and feel comfortable. For example, our fun Leopard Halter Tankini top might just be the swim top for you! With high-quality shirring details at the bust and side seams, comfortable ties behind the neck, it works perfectly with cup sizes A to C, plus, it's limited edition meaning you'll own a unique top that can be mixed and matched with almost any swim bottom you like!

Ruched or shirring: Shirring, as well as ruching, is an adorable, feminine touch that is a delightful touch to a swim top that may be just the thing you'll feel ultimately comfortable in. For example, our customers love the feel and look of our Black Gingham Ruched Tankini as well as our Olive and Plum Tank One-Pieces for their exquisite ruching and shirring techniques, not to mention how they always stay in place no matter what.

One Shoulder Top: Smaller busts can dazzle easily in a one-shoulder swim top without worry. This cute top comes in many colors and various styles for you rock with whichever bottoms you love. Our delicate orchid One-Shoulder top comes with an adjustable strap and gorgeous oversized ruffle, or if you love gingham, check out our Rust Gingham One-Shoulder tankini top. If you aren't feeling any of those, we also have our One-Shoulder blossom Tankini, Black Seersucker One-Shoulder crop, and Blue Seersucker One-Shoulder crop.

Large Bust Swim Tops

Support is no doubt one of the biggest concerns women with large busts have, and it is one of the most difficult to achieve with some swim top designs as either the bottoms are perfect, but the tops are completely lacking—or the tops have support but they are so uncomfortable it feels like it needs constant adjustment.

When it comes to being supportive in addition to comfortable, Lime Ricki has several fantastic swim tops that are perfect for our ladies with a large bust to feel free to move about and swim without worrying about slippage, or adjustments due to ill fit. Some of our customer favorites and perfect for large busts are:

Racerback Crop Top: Not only is a racerback crop top perfect for the beach, the pool, or the lake it's amazing for any kind of sports or just as a cute summer top. Racerbacks are incredibly supportive given their wide array of fantastic straps or shoulder pieces and solid, excellently constructed materials that offer the ultimate in support all around. For example, some of our most popular racer-back crop tops are our:

  • Persimmon Racerback Crop Top
  • Lavender Racerback Crop top
  • Olive Racerback Crop Top
  • Plum Racerback Crop Top
  • Black Zipper Crop Top

Crop tops: You may not have originally considered crop tops in general to be a type of swim top that is excellent for support, but surprisingly with the right design, they can be! Whether its cap sleeves, ties in the front, boat neckline, or square neckline—crop tops can be a solid choice to keep you covered, comfortable, and looking fabulous! Check out some of our personal favorites:

  • Red Square-Neck Crop
