In the last few years alone, swimwear has changed drastically. Nowadays, bodies with bigger busts can feel seen with brands like Wild Isles on their side.
Made in Minnesota by founders Liz and Lu, Wild Isles positions itself as an underwire-free size-inclusive brand — specifically for D cups and up. Created for big busts, the brand carries swimsuit tops that accommodate band sizes 28-44 and cup sizes C-H. When it comes to swimsuit bottoms, the brand offers sizes 2-24.
As if the size inclusivity wasn’t ground-breaking enough, the brand is also entirely sustainable. Materials to make the swimsuits come from ethically recycled fishing nets that are imported from Italy. Whether you purchase a top or a bottom from the brand, every garment has two layers of recycled nylon and four-way stretch.
Wild Isles carries four swimsuit bottoms for $75 each and four swimsuit tops that are $95 each. There are three high-waisted bottoms including the Stella Ruched Side High-Waisted Bottoms, the Capri High Tide Cheeky Bottoms and the Hana High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms. The one mid-waist option is the Lola Tie Side Bottoms. As for the swim tops, you can snag the Vita Deep V Bikini Top, the ruched Sunny Bikini Top, the Zoe High Neck Bikini Top or the Dottie Tie Bikini Top. All of the swimsuits come in earthy tones and some swimsuit bottoms are even reversible.
Wild Isles sent me a swimsuit that included the Hana High-Waisted Bikini Bottoms and its best-selling top, the Dottie Tie Bikini Top. Honestly, it’s easy to see why this is the brand’s best-selling style because I almost wore it the entire day as a real bra. The back straps act like a pulley system for your bust. I’m typically a 40F, and I was thoroughly shocked to see how much support I had in this underwire-free bikini top. My shoulders didn’t hurt after hours of wearing it, and the fabric itself is super soft on the skin.
Wild Isles shoppers really do love the Dottie Tie Bikini Top. One customer who left five stars said, “this top is such a confidence builder.“
“I can’t believe how I look even without underwire,” the shopper wrote. “It is so nice to be able to adjust from both the front and the back. This top is such a confidence builder and I can’t wait to wear it out this summer.“
If you’ve got a big bust, Wild Isles has you covered… and supported.
