    I am a size 10 with a 32E bust. I have brown skin and very black hair, luckily for me, this combination looks very good against bright colours and patterns.

    I want a bikini that will be supportive, but will still be pretty. Anyone got any suggestions where to look?

    I tried on some string bikinis, but they were just far too skimpy. I want something halterneck, or made in a bra size.

    AVOID string bikinis! Go for an underwired halterneck or strap bikini/tankini top

    Bravissimo do good ones, but they're very expensive! Next to really good underwired, halterneck bikinis in bra sizes that are really nice, comfy and reasonably priced too. Or you could try New Look (the Kelly Brook range), and pretty much any department store will have a range of (probably quite expensive) bikinis in bra sizes.

    EDIT - Here's the link to Next's swimwear range.

    Bravissimo does some really nice ones in bright colours, and they are proper bras, i.e underwired. Also they are specifically for big boobs. Expensive tho

    I'm the same size as you and I've been looking for a bikini for a couple of weeks. Theres not many left in the shops now, but I got this one in the end from La Senza. Its really nice IRL: http://www.lasenza.co.uk/swimwear/bi...=S309_Swim_19b

    Theres a few more on their website too. And try Figleaves, they do bra size bikinis too. M&S have a few nice ones but I think they're all (or mostly) in dress sizes. And like the person above said, don't go for a string bikini. An underwired cup size bikini is much better for girls with bigger boobs.

    In before, 'no bikini'.

    This one, from fig leaves, would probably look quite nice-http://www.figleaves.com/uk/product....-p632706-front

    You could go topless, that will look best.

    This is the bane of my life, I couldn't find anything to support my Es when I'm a size 8 so in the end I settled for a tankini from Next (not on the website though, weirdly) which is both pretty and amazingly supportive.

    Finding bikinis for big boobs is an absolute night mare...most shops on the high street either don't stock them or charge the earth. Half of the bikinis that are available are plain ugly which is so unfair. I found this article on bikinis for big boobs useful. http://www.somekindoffabulous.co.uk/2010/03/30/dd-bikini-best-bikinis-for-large-breasts/ it features the usual great brands like freya but cheaper than high street prices.
