Sew the lining to the cups, being careful not to hit your underwire and use the lining piece in your normal swimsuit construction. You can machine sew through the cup itself or hand sew around the edge of cup. To prevent visible lines from the front, you may want to cut away the excess lining fabric.
For optimal breast support, it’s best to use underwire bikini tops, and even bikinis with a bit of push-up. The reason for this is because underwire tops provide a solid base underneath your breasts which will prevent them from sagging any further.
To insert foam bra pads into the top, fold the bra pad in half (like a soft taco), ease it through the gap and wiggle it into place. It should fit snugly into the bra area. If it’s still a bit roomy and you’re worried the pad might move, simply sew or pin the pads in place (foam pads only – never pin silicone).
Underwires are named after the band size for the B cup. So a 36B will use a size 36 wire but so will a 38A and a 34C. So the easy way to pick your wire is to use the chart to find the size you picked out based on your measurement and then find the wire size that represents your size by following along the row.

Bra pads are an easy and convenient way to increase the appearance of your bust size. With bra inserts, you can achieve the perfect bust without undergoing cosmetic surgery. Most bust enhancement pads are made with waterproof materials, so you can place them in swimsuit tops as well as bra tops.
A shelf bra is a built-in ‘pullover’ style bra that is sewn into the inside of the garment (tank tops, t-shirts, or one-piece swimsuits.) It is usually constructed of similar material but may contain more stretch and have an elastic band designed to sit beneath the bust. Usually, shelf bras are not underwired.
