Triangle bikini tops with knots & straps

Triangle bikinis or halter neck tops are perfect bikini tops for small bust, as it provides minimal coverage and it can be worn and tied in a variety of ways. The reverse or upside-down trick gives an extra boost for small boobs by slightly squeezing the breasts. Make sure that the cups are adjustable so that you can adjust the width of the bikini: Too large "cups" will make your cleavage look empty and smaller.

Our fine straps from our triangle top Luan create a feminine look.

Rounded shapes for a natural push-up

Choose bikini tops with a slightly rounded shape, as this will naturally create a larger silhouette. Be careful with straight lines and cuts, however, as these can make your breasts look smaller.

Our Paco bikini top is the perfect bikini for small breasts: rounded shape, knot that can be tied even tighter and straps that can be tied straight or as a halter-neck.

Ruffles, bows - perfect top for small boobs

Embellishments add volume and an illusion of a larger chest area. With a small chest opt in for bikini tops with ruffles, frills, mesh, bows or fringes too slightly cover for your small bust.

Underwired bikini tops

Underwired bikinis are also popular with women with small bust sizes. This cut often visually enhances the bust. Please note - if the top is not made of two layers of fabric and the fabric is rather thin, you can still use pads.

See at our friend Matia Beachwear for a perfect underwire bikini top.

Padded bikini tops? Yes, they make a small bust look full, but they can also have the opposite effect if they don't fit perfectly and are too big. You should also be more careful with bandeau tops as they often make the bust look flat. Tip for bandeau tops with small chest: Choose bright colors and colorful patterns. Bandeau tops with subtle details like ruching, twisted fronts, and knots are perfect.
