Maybe you could buy the swim cups online somewhere?
I'm a 42A, so I can kinda sympathize.  Isn't it peculiar how those without boobs want more of them, and those with them want less of them?

Im not that big (12/14D - I don't know what that is in your guys kind of sizing tho) but I finally bought a bikini that doesnt make me sag. its just a regular triangular halter, but with bigger triangles, and then, along the bottom it has a really wide band.  And stangely, the really wide band works wonders in holding my boobs up.  So maybe you might want to look into something like that.

I wish I had smaller boobs.

I forgot to mention: I am in the UK (Scotland) so haberdashery stores are few and far between.

I do like qbmaya's  idea of cutting up and old bra, though. I could go and buy a really huge one so that I have enough material to play with Smiley

If you are in the UK, have you looked at Bravissimo??

http://www.bravissimo.com/bravissimo/ProductList.aspx?cid=Swimwear_Bikinis&language=en-GB

I know you are talking about making something yourself, but if you haven't seen Bravissimo, it really is worth a look.  I LOVE their products (they also have shops and I'm lucky enough to live reasonably near one).  I bought some new bras from them recently (30FF) and they were begining to get their summer swimwear in and I think there are some lovely bits!  Cheesy

Knittyknit, I think you have answered a lot of hopes!
I'm a 34DD and had a horrible time finding a bikini top that fit right and just don't have time to try to make one for myself. I finally found one in a swim store in the mall where they see swimming suits in bra sizes. Doesn't really help if you're in the UK though,sadly.

Good luck in your adventure!

The halter type of swimwear people are talking about flatters just about every kind of shape.  Here is a Kwik Sew pattern (number 3238) which is available to the UK:

Well first things first, you must love your boobs before you help them and yourself in feeling better. I have 36DD, sadly, and get a lot of attention but sadly and luckily those people dont know that Im only so young and have the grandma resting breast. Sorry boys these aren't lovely porn star breast while are stiff and dont sag.  Roll Eyes

Anyway, you could almost play around with a fitting bra, like some people have said,
Or.

This site pretty much teaches how to make an awsome bra and why not a bikini top? I mean you may need to change and replace a few thigns that the bra and Bikini top do and dont have in common but I think this could help a lot. Hope it does!

A few mentioned Halter top styel, do you mean the ones that tye behind the neck?  I found one recently that said it was for D/DD sizes. It ties behind the neck: And the weight of by breasts pull so hard on the top that it hurts my neck.  I plan to only wear it for a little while and at night!  It still has a little "Side Boob" action to it.
I'm heading out right now to get that Threads!! I'm always have trouble getting tops to fit! I'm excited Smiley

OMG!  Yes!  Both of my grandmothers were F cups and they had deep gashes in their shoulders from 70+ years of excessive boobs.  In my case, I used to wear the tops w/ the built in bra and while I'm lucky in that my DD's don't sag (yet), halter tops do leave me sore and sometimes bruised by the knot hitting my spine cord.  I would not suggest halter tops at all!  I definately would go with either a bra pattern, or just stretching material over a bra that you already have.
