Whatever Your Cup Size, This Bikini Trend Will Suit Absolutely Everyone

With a 32G cup size, I have always seen underwiring as a necessity—particularly when it comes to swimwear. While I've admired triangle bikinis from afar, I know from experience that they don't offer as much hold as I would like. And when I'm essentially wearing my bikini as a top on holiday, the last thing I want to feel is unsupported and unconfident in my cossie. This is why I always opt for underwire bikini styles. Not only do they feel great, but they also make me feel sexier than just about every other swimwear I've tried. But they're not exclusively being worn by women with fuller busts. Everyone I know seems to be in on the trend.

Retro-inspired underwire is appearing on more bikini tops than ever before. Once hidden away underneath fabric, the wire is now being used as a deliberate design detail. Whether you're an A-cup or on the busty side like I am, it'll make you feel great as soon as you put it on. So whether you're looking to do a few laps in the pool or prefer to stick to your lounger, underwire bikinis are sure to tick all of your swimwear boxes.
