Big bust swimsuits and bikini tops are both sexy, but only if you’re into big, boob-shaped breasts.
We’ve seen this with the new crop of big-breasted women, who are embracing the trend of huge breasts with aplomb.
In fact, a number of brands have started selling swimwear that’s “big bust” as a fashion statement, so you can feel like you’re having a “big” night.
But what exactly is a “bust” bikini?
Is it a size that’s big enough for your bust?
And what about if you want to wear a smaller size?
Read on for the answers.1.
Is a “Bust” Swimsuit a Swimsuit?
The term “buster bikini” was coined by the International Society of Sports Medicine (ISSM) in 2004.
Its purpose is to describe swimsuits that are smaller than the “normal” size.
The standard size for a “bulky” bikini is usually a 38-inch waist and 36-inch chest, but the ISSM has since expanded the definition of a bikini size to the “bump size” of a 36C.
The “bikini bust” is a bigger bust than the standard size, but it’s not the bust of a woman with an average or large breast size.
A “bounce” swimsuit will have the waist of the swimsuit stretched and/or cut off, so it’s smaller than a normal swimsuit.2.
Does a “Big Bust” Swimwear Cover Up Big Busts?
This is where it gets interesting.
A big bust is not necessarily “big,” and the definition varies widely from brand to brand.
The big-bust model has a much larger breast and/ or is more muscular than the normal bust model.
A swimsuit with a “large bust” will often cover up a bigger, more athletic bust.3.
Is There a Difference Between a Swimwear and a Swim Top?
While some brands will sell a swimwear in a bikini-sized “bush,” a swimtop will not cover up the bust in a swim top.
There are two main reasons for this.
First, swimwear doesn’t have to cover up your breasts if they’re too big.
Second, a swimtite with a smaller bust will give you an “accidental” bump, because you can wear a larger size swimtop, which covers up your bust.4.
Can a “Large Bust” Cover Up a “Small Bust”?
This may be true, but a “small bust” also does not cover the bust area, which is the area between the top of your shirt and the hem of your dress.
It’s possible for a swimdress to be too small for a full bust, but you’ll have to consider whether it will cover up more than a “normal size” swimtop.
A size 3 swimdress is usually too small, so a size 4 swimdress or a size 6 swimdress may be the best option for you.5.
Are There Any “Bump Busters” Available?
While there are many options for a bikini top, there are also a number that come with the option of a bump bust.
Most brands offer “bumps” in their swimwear, with the size or shape of the bump being determined by the manufacturer.
However, the bump bust may be more common in swimwear.
A lot of brands will only sell swimwear with a bust size of “small,” and many will only offer a bump size of 1.5 or 2.5 depending on the brand.
You’ll have more options if you go with a brand that offers both a bust and a bump, but if you have a large bust, there may be a better fit with a size 3 or 4 swimsuit for you than a bikini that is a little too small.6.
Is Your Bikini Busted?
A lot will depend on your height and body type.
For women with a larger bust, a “bubble” swimdress will cover your entire breast area, including your belly button, which can be more comfortable than a standard swimtop and a swim tie.
However for smaller busts, a bump bikini may not cover all of your breasts.
This can result in a very large bump in the center of your bust and make it difficult to wear the swimwear correctly.
