Bikini Tops That Offer Exceptional Support
When it comes to bikini tops that offer support, there are really only two main options available that work. There is the “underwire” and the ”halter” style tops. Within these two categories there are a number of options available depending on the look and coverage that you are looking for.
Before we take a look at actual bikini top examples, let’s examine the main elements that make up the structure of a good bikini top that offers support.
Bikini Tops With Under Support or Lift – Not matter how you look at it, if you are looking for support, you either need an underwire style “Note the underwire is actually plastic in a bikini to avoid corrosion” or a wide elastic support band under the bust. In either case, both offer excellent support and make up the foundation of a good bikini top.
Side Support – I know this sounds a little odd, but a good bikini top that offers excellent support requires side panels or a wider cup to keep things tucked in and allow the support band or underwire to do its job.
Wide Straps – Depending on the size of your bust, always take a look at the width of the straps. Unlike bras, many companies that offer supportive bikini tops design them with narrow straps which will dig into your shoulders and neck and become extremely uncomfortable very quickly. Choose a bikini top that has a strap that will match the weight and size of your bust.
Fabric For Support – Make sure you choose a bikini top with a lining if you want to truly get excellent support. Some of the single layer sheer styles are simply stunning however they do not offer the same shaping and countering ability that a lined bikini top offers.
Supportive Bikini Top Coverage – Depending on your comfort level, bikini tops that offer support come in a wide range of coverage options. Choosing the right coverage will allow you to feel comfortable while taking part in activities or simply strolling around a resort or cruise ship. With this said, keep in mind that a bikini top that offers excellent support will raise and shape your bust so be careful not to choose a bikini top that will expose to much or too little for your personal taste.
