Isobel by Panache Swimwear, 28-40 D-K
I am looking for a nice swimsuits that will fit my bra size which is 36 K. Please help me find what I’m looking for.
Apologies for the slow response: as those around me are no doubt sick of hearing I’m getting married in three weeks, and between work and wedmin there’s not all that much room left in my brain for bras.
That said, a girl needs a break. What better way to unravel my over-taxed brain cells than a little bit of swimwear related research…?
I’m sorry to be the bearer of disappointing news but K-cup swimwear – especially K-Cup swimsuits – are still a rare breed, so you don’t have quite as much choice as I would love to be able to deliver here (not least because a couple of the styles I found have already sold completely out).
That said, it’s not totally hopeless. Panache do a classic, almost 50’s silhouetted Isobel in sizes 28-40 D-K (above). It’s plain, but I think the neckline brings an interesting and elegant detail to what could be a boring black costume. And if that’s too – well, black – the San Marino swimsuit by Bravissimo is brighter option for your holiday wardrobe.

Tankinis can also be a great alternative – offering a similar amount of coverage but much more flexibility in sizes that with a one-piece. This Paradise Red tankini by Curvy Kate, and this Cape Verde tankini also by Bravissimo are bright (if not mind-blowing) alternatives. And if you prefer a print and feel like being a shade braver with a flash of tummy, you could even try this cute pineapple print Coco Palm suit by Bravissimo too.

I’m sorry it’s not the biggest selection – but one thing I’ll say is that swimsuit ranges and size options have consistently improved every summer for the last four years. This year, J-Cup swimwear is nearly commonplace. If demand is proven (and sell-out sizes suggest it is), then K-Cups could be hot on their heels.
Good luck and let me know how you get on,
