Does anyone know where I can find a bathing suit top that has bra sizing? I wear a 36D or DD depending on the brand. Most tops off the rack don't fit well. Someone told me to find bra sizing in a bikini top but I'd really like to avoid shopping online because I'd like to try it on.

I've thought of ordering a few but I don't want to pay for shipping and then pay to have them shipped back as well.

Does anyone know of a store that has tops sized like a bra?

Oh, and I'm not looking for "grandma" styles...this is not something I'd typically wear but my husband has requested this for when we take our boat out (a nice private affair where nobody else will see me up-close...lol).

Macys has bra sizing swim wear if there is a store in your area:
Women's Swimwear at Macy's - Stylish Women's Swimwear, Women's Swimsuits - Macy's


As well as Dillards:

My first thought was Victoria's Secret, they sell bra sized swimwear.....but they are online...however many of the Victorias Secrets where I live do sell some swimwear in the stores....

Since this is a "private" affair why not wear pasties or au naturel and a thin tee shirt.

And no, I'm not trying to be a smart pants here. I see anything a wife/husband can do in private to keep the spark in a marriage alive and well as a good thing.

I should say it's mostly private. There are other people on the lake and while we don't anchor up right next to someone...there will be others around.

When I said private...I meant in that they wouldn't be on our boat or close enough to see my stretch marks

A tee covers too much skin though, for his taste.

Well, ok but there is no swim suit made that will tease as much as thin white (maybe wet) tee shirt. Besides one never wants to get to much sun anymore with all the skin cancers and such.

I just got one from victoria secret and you buy the top and bottom separate. The tops come in regular bra sizes and fit perfect!
