There used to be a time when the larger chested amongst us would have to make do with fugly swimwuits, whilst our smaller chested perkier friends frolicked in their beautiful bright itsy bitsy bikinis. But slowly, our boobs are being catered for in a myriad of prints and patterns.

Enter: Elle from Panache Swim.


It’s available in sizes 30-38, D-K across the board and it’s stunning! Gorgeous florals offset with a contrasting black and white border. Pow!

I received this set in a 36H/20 and it’s bang on. I always prefer swimwear to be a little looser back wise, and a 34 would have worked but I am paranoid about back fat on the beach. I will say that the top comes up true to Panache size – slightly firm band wise and true in the cups. My big booty required a 20 in the bottoms, and they too were spot on. I would have loved some super retro style high waisted bottoms to go with this as I am not always confident enough to pull off something quite so tummy showing. However, on those days when I feel like baring a little more I will certainly reach for this bikini – on others I might pair the top with some higher bottoms.

The top is non padded, but it does give my top heavy boobs a great shape and a tonne of support. I found it to be a nice height under my arms – no poking yet no spillage, and the wires were fairly wide, although my super wide boobs didn’t quite sink into the bottom of them.

You can buy this bikini at Figleaves, or find a more local stockist by clicking ‘Find A Stockist’ on the Panache website.
