Top Tiered 5: Most Supportive Bikini Tops - Wireless Edition

Posted on November 13 2023

  "Which bikini top provides the most support?"
This is probably the question we get asked the most on a daily basis (along with "Which is the most flattering swimsuit?" which is honestly the most difficult to answer so stay tuned for that one in another post!).  In this edition of our Top Tiered Series we're ranking the top 5 bikini tops that provide the most bust support without underwires (don't stress underwire lovers, we'll absolutely cover underwire tops in a future post as well as larger cup sizes!) So whether you're a triangle bikini top devotee, a sporty bralette enthusiast, or a bandeau buff, we're ranking the tops of the tops that will keep your bustline and your style elevated!


Meet the Contenders!



Read on to see why these tops made the cut!


This top from the Brazilian brand VIX is one of our best sellers and is the first that we recommend to anyone that loves the silhouette of a traditional sliding triangle top but needs one that will provide superior bust shaping and support.  We love that the halter neck tie straps are a bit more substantial to reduce the amount of strain that a heavier bust can have on the neck when wearing a traditional triangle halter.  Also, the 24k gold plated hardware sliding "tubes" allow you to choose your level of coverage.  Practical AND Stunning!


This pullover style bralette from eco-friendly California brand Vitamin A, has been a favourite among customers and staff for years!  The Sienna Tank Top is beloved not just for it's sleek, unpadded look and minimalist design, but also for it's fantastic bust support.  The wide underbust band keeps the top anchored in place and the comfy design makes this top great for yoga, light exercise, or vigorous swimming.  We especially love this top in the biosculpt fabric for it's smoothing, snug fitting, sculpting effect.


We can't even imagine a list of supportive bikini tops where Australian brand Seafolly doesn't make the cut.  The Seafolly Halter Bandeau wins a spot for being the most supportive bandeau top!  This structured top has built in padding, side boning, gripper tape to help it stay put, and wide halter tie straps that can be tied at the neck or wrapped around and tied at the back for when you want to avoid tan lines.  We've seen this timeless beauty on smaller and larger busts of all shapes, ages, and sizes, and it's almost always a winner and that is why it's so deserving of a place on this list!


We weren't kidding about Seafolly bikini tops being at the forefront of our minds when it comes to support!  If you were to ask us for a bikini top that is both sporty and sexy while simultaneously providing excellent bust support and being super comfortable, the Seafolly Hybrid Bralette is the first thing we would show you!  This bralette top shapes and supports and the flirty front and back cut-out details just add to it's appeal!


What can we say?  Those Australian swimwear brands know how to construct a well fitting, supportive bikini top!  This one from Australian brand Sea Level wins the best overall for being one of those tops that seem to mimic the support of an underwire style top without the underwire!  The strategically placed, crossover fabric detail combined with a longer length, built-in cups, and powermesh lining all provide superior lift and shaping for not only a supported bustline but a stunning overall silhouette!  Trust us and try one and when you've fallen in love with it as much as we have be sure to keep your eyes out for more colours, patterns, and textures in this style as we'll definitely have new ones on the way!
