If you're like most women, you love spending a day at the beach - but hate shopping for the perfect swimsuit to wear. While every body type has its own shopping challenges, women with large breasts might have the hardest time find a bathing suit that lifts and supports their bust while still being flattering and fashionable. Here are my picks for the best types of swimsuits for women with bigger cup sizes.

5) The Scoop Back If you prefer full-coverage at the bust, it can be tricky to find swimsuits that don't look old-fashioned. One great solution is a one piece swimsuit or tankini top with a low back. This type of swimsuit draws attention away from your chest, but still looks very sexy. To ensure that you'll get enough support, try a swimsuit that has a tie under the bust or has a cut out, rather than a full open back. Brand to look for: Karla Colletto

4) The Fitted Tankini Top Tankini tops are always popular, and with good reason! A great tankini looks young and trendy but covers any trouble spots. If you have DD cups or bigger, the key to this look is to find a tankini top that is fitted at the bottom, so you will have definition in your waist. A baggy tankini or one that is too large for your waist will not be flattering. Brand to look for: Panache

3) The Underwire Balcony Bikini If you have large breasts on a thin frame, finding clothes that fit all of you can be a challenge. Vacation is the perfect time to show off your sexy hourglass figure! A balcony bikini top with a wire offers the support and shaping of a bra, but won't look matronly. In the last few years, underwire bikinis have been a huge trend in the swimwear industry. This style can also look great on smaller cup sizes, because it will lift you up and create cleavage. Brand to look for: Freya Swimwear

2) The Retro Swimdress One piece swimsuits are coming back in style in a big way! This season, I saw tons of adorable new DD cup swimsuits, but my favorite trend is the retro-inspired swimdress. This type of swimsuit usually has a halter or sweetheart neckline, ruched fabric and a bottom that looks like a skirt - think Marilyn Monroe! This style is great for busty women because the fuller-coverage bottom visually balances your figure. Plus, most retro style swimsuits spotlight your cleavage without showing too much skin. For extra support, seek out styles with a hidden underwire. Brand to look for:: Aerin Rose

1) Bra Sized Swimwear This is the most general suggestion, but also the most important. Many bathing suits are sized in small, medium and large. If you are a small or medium woman with an extra large chest, this can make it impossible to find a bathing suit that will cover your breasts yet fit tightly across your back. The best way to find a great fit is to buy a bra sized bikini or swimsuit. Cup sized bikinis will be designed to be more supportive and fit a wider range of body types than traditional bathing suit sizing. For the very best fit, make sure you've recently had a bra fitting. Brands to look for C-G cups: Anita, Aerin Rose, Storm in a D Cup DD-K: cups: Freya, Fantasie, Panache
