I will be going to the beach next weekend, and just tried on this swimsuit ( a 1 piece) that I bought last summer on clearance. Now I remember why I never wore it....there is absolutely no support up top, and since I'm a larger girl I need that support. Any ideas on how to add support, like a bra? I have seen the cups and what not in Joann's, but not sure how this would effect the outside of the suit?

I think we'd need to see a picture of the top to know exactly how to help you.  Not necessarily you in it...if you're uncomfortable, but the top itself.  That way we can direct suggestions in the right way.

From experience, There are usually two ways of giving swimsuits support.

The "inner bandeaux" style, where there is an extra layer of material inside, with a strap of elastic beneath to hold up the girls. This method is probably the fastest, and simplest, regardless of the style of swimwear.

Being a bigger in the bust girls myself though... I know that isn't always enough support.

The second method, is usually a form of casting, with underwires (or some form of rust repelling version) actually in it; so that the top part actually fits like a real bra. Depending on the style of swimmers, this may or may not be possible, or work at all.

My solution.... i sometimes wear a bikini (bra style) under my regualr swimmers. As it's a flat connection at the back, it doesn't stick out or anything under my normal swimmers... but i still get to hide my belly!
