Default Swimsuit help?

Swimsuit season again...yikes!

Looking for some advice--I've lost almost 70 pounds since last summer, so I need a new swimsuit. With the weight loss, gravity and age, the "girls" need a little more support than they used to.

Any recommendations for swimsuit brands that provide good support? Right now, I'm a 16, but hope to be closer to a 12-14 by the summer. Unfortunately, you sort of need to buy a swimsuit now, because by the time it's hot enough here to hit the pool or beach, all the swimsuits will be gone!

Thanks in advance!!

Get a suit with underwire cups. What size bra do you wear? that can help with the search.

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

What I would recommend is looking for something that is bra-sized (like 36D) instead of by letter (like M). Also, you'll probably get a better overall fit if you buy a two-piece, like a tankini and bottoms, so that it fits properly in both places. I've seen some pieces on herroom that I'm definitely contemplating purchasing.
