Small chest? Instant enhancement can be created with molded cups, padding, fringes, stripes and gathered fabrics. Profile Blush by Gottex underwire bandeau top, $66, and tab side hipster bottom, $38, Everything But Water in the Fashion Show Mall

 

Tommy Bahama

Large chest? You need a top that can do some heavy lifting, a style that gives you full coverage plus a banded bottom and/or underwire so there are no wardrobe malfunctions at the beach. Look for adjustable straps, halter tops or tops with thicker straps to provide more bust support.

Midriff crisis

 

Midriff crisis? Opt for styles that have a diversion in the middle, such a ruching, or sneaky slimming fabrics such as Miraclesuit’s Miratex fabric, which provides full-body shaping to slim and shape curves. Miraclesuit Up And Coming Caliente in electric blue, $160, zappos.com

Support comes from
