Q. Where can I find a one-piece or tankini with underwire? I am a size 16 and with D breasts, so I just can't go without the wire. I am only 28, so I don't want a “grandma” suit, but I can't wear a string bikini either. Please help!

A. Some of the best styles that give lift and support with no “grandma” concerns are halter-top swimsuits. Look for ones with built in cups for the best lift and there are many swimsuits with discreet features like extra Lycra to flatten tummies and slim hips. I love Miraclesuit, and they offer specific styles for D and double D cups. Below are a few of my suggestions and be sure to check out our latest Swim Style style recipe for more options.
