Has any of my larger chested sisters tried shopping on those cheaper online retailers like Zaful, Romwe and Rosegal? I would love to hear reviews and buying tips.

None of those but Venus has some bathing suits with bra top sizing.

I generally go for bra sized but oddly I picked up some well fitting suits at Forever 21 and Old Navy that are s/m/l with underwires and they actually have reasonable support and work well. The built in underwear is surprisingly effective if you can get a pretty good coverage.

I've had a couple of people mention Forever 21. Old navy seems just a bit on the small side when it comes to non bra sized swim. I need to find a place that offers the same bikinis for plus as well as regular sized. I tend to wear a medium bottom and at min a xl in top.

I ordered one from CupShe last year and it actually fit. It was one of those situations where the top and bottom are both the same size, but the style of the top is what helped.

But typically I buy tops that are bra sized and separate pieces. I get most off of ASOS. They have a really easy and free return process if something doesn't work!

Check online at old navy, their regualr sizing is up to XXL and the swimwear for plus was pretty close to parity last year. I am a straddler so I tried on XL,XXL, 1x and 2x. I needed to go up to 2x for the top, and was XL at the bottom if I recall. The tops fit a little differently, but the plus worked better for me. I wear a 34H UK bra.

The patterns were the same but they had few options for bottoms in plus. And a couple of different tops.
