Cut the rectangle out. Use sharp scissors to cut out the rectangle previously measured. Make sure that your cuts are as straight and clean as possible. This piece will be used for the outer portion of your top. Cut out a bow shape from your lining material. Lightly sketch the same dimensions used for your main rectangle onto your lining material. Then, sketch out a dip in the center, and draw diagonal lines from each corner connecting to this dip. Cut the shape out when done.
Measure out the exact center of your rectangle's length. The dip should be placed there. Draw a vertical line in the center roughly 3 inches 7. Make the line shorter for a more dramatic dip or longer for a less obvious one. Draw diagonal lines from the top corners to the top of your middle line and diagonal lines from the bottom corners to the bottom of your middle line. Cut out two straps. Sketch out two rectangles from your main material, each measuring 3 inches 7.
Cut out as cleanly as possible. Taper the ends, if desired, or leave the ends in a blunt square cut. Draw a two marks near the middle length of each strap.
The marks should be spaced apart by the amount of space making up the width of your main piece. Note that these marks indicate the positions at which you will sew the straps to the top.
Gather the center front of your rectangle. Mark the exact center of your rectangular front piece from the back. Hand sew a gathering stitch along this center line. Thread your needle and knot the end. Sew a long straight stitch down the line, bringing the knot flush against the fabric. From the unknotted end, push the fabric back on the thread, moving it toward the knot, so that the fabric gathers. Continue gathering the thread until the center of your top matches the center of your lining in width.
Tie the second end off to secure the gather in place. Note that you may also want to sew over your gathers using a standard stitch several times to reinforce the design.
Sew molded cups into the lining. Use pre-made pads or cups and sew them onto the wrong side of the lining. Pin the pads onto your lining from the wrong side, with any curved portion face-up. Position the cups so that the are centered on either side of the lining. They should not extend into the center of the lining or overlap with one another.
Make sure that the cups or pads you use fit your chest. Pin and sew the lining into the top. Match together the lining to the main piece of your top, with the right sides facing together. When the sides appear even, pin, then sew in place with a machine straight stitch or a hand sewn backstitch.
At this point, you only need to sew along the top and bottom edges. Do not sew the sides. Turn the top right side out. Pull the top through one of the openings left on either side so that the right sides of your lining and main piece both face out.

It also lets you get more or less coverage and support depending on where you need it. For a larger chest look for styles that have a good support band and halter ties rather than spaghetti strap shoulder ties Avoid all over flow prints and get prints that have solid colors in at least some of the print Only buy tankinis if you can use the top to wear as sexy clothing since that makes a tankini more sensible and lets you pair it with shorts or a skirt cover up.
For a small chest try bandeau tops with bright detailing Don't just hide a particular flaw and then think you're done, you must couple that with drawing attention to another more positive area of your body For shorter legs try a monokini or scoop style bottoms that go up higher on the sides since that always elongates the legs If you are overweight don't hide everything make sure to use your cleavage to your adavantage as that is sexy and draws attention away from weight issued areas For a boyishly thin figure try exotic one piece suits with prints and cutouts.
