Fashion: HALT- er

As I mention in my last fashion post I have some big knockers. I am a small 5'2 chick with DD boobs.

As you can imagine, this makes life a little diffcult when it comes to swimsuit season. I love to wear bikinis, but I hate hate HATE halter tops. The weight of my boobs around my neck hurts, and if I'm wearing it for hours on end, it starts to give me a headache.

This makes my life a little more difficult. I don't have the luxury of going into Target and just picking something in a color I like. Most of those tops won't even fully cover these suckers. I look like a porn star.

I've got two weeks till OBX and I am on a mission to find a bikini that is NOT a halter. Any ideas?

..and if anyone suggests one of those bandeau tops, I'm going to laugh in your face.

Like you, my boobies are far too heavy for long wear halter tops (however, they are real and they look spectacular in them). I bought a cute tankini top that has a demi cup built in. It has a great 1950's look (black with white polka dots and fire engine red straps). the only problem is that the straps are wide (like and inch and a half.) I don't mind but they will give you a major tan line. And again because of the jumbo jumblies that i have, i had to buy it at what i call "the big girl store" Torrid. i can't buy any tops, bras, or bathing suits in normal (cheap) places like Target and Old Navy. Anyway it's great though, it's really flattering and comfortable.

I think this is it...but i don't remember it having that red thing keeping the girlies separate (but equal). I bought it in the Spring. It looks really cute on, i was surprised actually.
