Bra fitting expert Courtney Killpack shared the 3 types of swim suits that you want to avoid:

1. Dress Size: 2, 4, 6, 8, etc.
These types of swimsuits assume if you're a size 10, you have large breasts, and if you're a size 4 you have tiny breasts. In my experience, the vast majority of women breasts are not proportioned to their dress size.

2. Shirt Size: XS, S, M, L, XL, 1X, etc.
This assumes if you're a size Small, you have small breasts. And if you're a size Large, you have large breasts.

3. Combined Bra Sizes: A/B, C/D, DD/DDD, 34 A/B, 34 C/D, etc. No one can be a size A and B at the same time.
