If you’re looking for cute swimsuits for a flat chest, I’ve got you covered! Below, you can find the best one-piece swimsuits and bikinis for a flat chest on the market right now. 

Being a small chested girl, I’ve always felt restricted with what I can and can’t wear to the beach, what looks good and what makes me feel like a boy. If you also have a flat chest, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. 

Over the years as I’ve gotten to know my body more, I’ve figured out a few key things that look flattering on my body, and a couple of definite no-no’s. 

Before we jump into the best swimsuits for a flat chest, let me share these tips with you briefly.

 

What To Look For  In Swimsuits For A Flat Chest

 

With the rise of K-pop and the move towards a more body positive, more accepting world of all bodies, we’ve also seen more models and celebrities with small chests, such as Lily Collins and Cindy Kimberly flaunt their natural bodies.

These people have made it cool to wear whatever you want with a small chest, and the connotation of having a small bust isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, if you want to create the illusion of a bigger bosom or find a swimsuit that flatters your body to its fullest potential, here are a few tips.

 

1. Padding

Padding is definitely the first thing to look for in swimsuits for a flat chest. Both regular padding, as well as push-up effect padding, will do depending on the look that you’re going for. 

2. Ruffles & Voluminous Shoulders

Another thing to try is ruffles. If you have a small chest, swimsuits with added drama are your friend, as they will distract away from your small bosom. The ruffles can be anywhere – directly on the chest, or on the shoulders.

3. Go high-waisted

High waisted bikinis create the illusion of a cinched in waist, making your body appear more hourglass. This won’t make your bust appear bigger, but it creates a more feminine figure overall and directs attention away from your bust.

4. If all else fails, wear a padded strapless bra under your swimsuit.

If you can’t find flattering swimwear for small busts that fit your own frame or sense of style, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a strapless bra or some extra padding underneath that gives you a bit of volume. I’ve done it a few times with swimsuits that have absolutely no structure, and the results have been great. 

 

Now, with these tips in mind, let me show you some of the best swimsuits for a flat chest on the market right now! For quicker navigation, feel free to jump straight into the swimwear type that you like.
