Shopping for a Bathing Suit after Breast Augmentation

Summer is quickly approaching, and If you’ve recently had a breast augmentation and are ready to show off your body at the beach or swimming pool, you may be having trouble finding a bathing suit that fits right.

Old habits die hard, and you’re probably still shopping for your old body shape.  A smaller bust  may have actually been easier to shop for – grab a triangle string bikini top or a strapless bandeau top and you’re done.  Larger breasts mean you need to make sure you’re covered and supported. But not to worry, there are plenty of options for women with fuller breasts that provide coverage and ample support.

One style that works well is a halter top which provides more coverage than a triangle top but still shows off your new cleavage.  Halter top bathing suits also have the support needed for larger breasts than a strapless top, which may cause breasts to appear droopy. Another option is a swimsuit with underwire for additional support.  Just make sure that you’re far enough out from your surgery to wear a top with underwire.

Regardless of the swimsuit you choose, you deserve to show off your new body, and more importantly, your new confidence!
