Bikinis for small boobs

About 4 years ago, after both my children had been born and breastfed I looked at the state of my poor body - mainly my breasts. I hated them so much that I investigated a boob job and was convinced at the time that it was the right thing to do and so I had my consultation booked and I was going to go for it. But then I told my parents about what I was planning to do (I needed their help with childcare after the surgery) and the look on their faces said it all .. the disappointment was too much for little old me so I had to look around for something that would boost (no pun intended!) my confidence and appearance in the chest department.

Back then it was actually really hard to find good bras that ensured you looked like you had more than you did. I didn't want a Wonderbra, I didn't want to show off my cleavage, I wanted to turn sideways and see some breast shape, not just a peanut smuggler outline.

So I turned to the internet! I first ordered from Max Cleavage (for real, that is their company name, I love it!) and was so embarrassed that the post man would KNOW I had NO BOOBS when the parcel arrived.  Fear not, it was sent in a very discreet package. I have since ordered lots of bras from them and I cannot tell you the difference it has made to my confidence (and sideways shape).

So then I thought, if they make boob enhancing bras they MUST make bikini's - and they do!  However they can be a pricey and whilst I have no doubts the quality is good, they still only last one summer (lots of sea and sand and chlorine will kill your bikini).

I love this one, so cute. What I ADORE about the Max Cleavage bikini's (and swimsuits) is that a lot of their range is filled with a liquid gel - they really do feel like items already half filled with a good boob, you just have to add yours to the top to totally fill it out!

Raspberry Ripple Gel Bikini Top and Bottom set - £60

But at £60 for a single bikini and knowing how tight I am you always knew I was going to look around!  I did this last summer and found that Debenhams had introduced a range, I managed to grab a couple when they had a 20% off summer sale - wahoo, good bikini's at a good price = Fiona very happy. 

As an example of what their boob enhancing bikini can do to saggy puppy dog ear breasts check me out!



So let's stay with Debenhams and this amazing Ultimate Beach range they offer - my top picks are:

White Ruffled Floral Bust Boosting Halter Neck Bikini Top - £16 (matching bottoms - £9.60)




Red Striped Extreme Boost Bikini Top - £20.80 (matching bottoms - £9.60)




Marks and Spencer also have a great range to buy online and in-store


Autograph Pleated Underwired Push-Up Bikini Top - £25 (matching bottoms £16)



Next also have what look like fantastic chest boosting bikinis although I would like to try these on as padded is not the same as either gel filled or the super boost that the Debenhams ones give you above.

Wow Zebra Swimwear, Padded Underwired Bikini £18 (matching bottoms £12)





So I've just spend what seems like hours searching the internet for 'gel filled' or 'breast enhancing' bikini's but there isn't a lot around - there are lots of results but when you dig down deep there are not that many that are TRUE breast enhancing bikini's, or they are out of stock (please remove these from your site as it's annoying) or they only have 1 size left.

I saw some in my local Matalan and they were REALLY good, lots of 'umph' and not a bad price but I can't find them online to show you (#pethate). I didn't buy at the time because it was March and I though Summer was a long way off - how right I am!

Do you have a good breast enhancing bikini that you would recommend? If you spot any along the way please share, I need some more this summer (if we get a summer that is!)

    1. Debenhams were the best for me in terms of the results and the money I paid - they also have 20% off right now so worth taking a look.

  5. I think you look amazing in that bikini - I wish I looked that good. Now I have a challenge for you - good coverage for the tummy and bottom? I can handle the tops, I don't mind having acorns for boobs but it's the bottom area which I can't bring myself to show. What can you recommend?
