This or that: Willow or Tona?

        Whether it’s your first time at Blackbough or you've been a long-time babe of ours, sticking to the classics is always a good idea. There’s really no reason not to go for the bestselling styles - they fly off the shelves fast for good reasons. So now, we’re putting our personal biases aside and letting you in on everyone’s favorite styles: the Willow Top and the Tona Top. Find out why they speak to such polar opposites in terms of body types - and see which style is right for you!

The Willow

Here’s one of our OG styles which has always been a crowd favorite of busty girls. Now, if you’re looking for bikinis for your larger bust, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s why:


All hail the underwire! A major feature of the Willow Top is the built-in underwire that gives it major extra support - and we mean MAJOR. They perfectly hold the girls in place making it one of the most supportive bikini tops you can find. And, if you’re looking for a bikini with a lift, the Willow Top’s underwire gives exactly that - if you’ve got it, then flaunt it!

Adjustable Spaghetti Strap

The Willow Top comes with adjustable spaghetti straps, so you can tighten or loosen this bikini top as you’d like. Whether you’re tanning on the beach or playing some beach volleyball, you’ll be sure that you won’t be spilling out of your cups since you can tighten or loosen the fit as you please! For larger busts, we don’t exactly recommend bandeau style bikini tops as you might not get the support you need - we highly suggest you stick to the ones with straps.

Adjustable Band

The common pains of finding the perfect bikini top for larger busts? Either having to size up for a larger cup and ending up with an oversized band, or not having enough coverage when the band fits perfectly. With this in mind, we made sure the Willow Top comes with hooks at the back similar to how a bra fits - with an adjustable band length and the right cup coverage. Plus, you can get our bikini tops and bottoms separately - no need to get your sizes in a set. That way, if you’re larger up top or at the bottom, you can still get the perfect fit!

Thick Side Coverage

We don’t forget the side! As much as the support and coverage are important up front, we wouldn’t want any spillage now, do we? We decided to provide good coverage at the sides of the Willow Top so you can strut in your bikini securely, regardless of angle.

The Tona

While the Willow’s all about getting support for busty babes, the Tona Top is for the complete opposite! This one’s perfect for members of the itty-bitty titty committee, with all the right details to accentuate a flat chest with its flattering fit.

Twist Detail

The Tona Top’s most unique detail is the twist right at the middle - giving this triangle bikini top the twist it needs to make it uniquely Blackbough. This twist detail not only serves as a unique style element but also creates the illusion of volume and curves. Never had a cleavage before? Well, you’re about to have one now with this top!

Adjustable Spaghetti Strap

Just like the Willow, the Tona Top comes with adjustable spaghetti straps so you can tighten it or loosen it based on what feels best for you! So, even if you’re on the less endowed spectrum (read: smaller chest), this bikini top gives a lift when you make it tighter. The band is adjustable too like the Willow Top, so you can tighten the band further if you’re looking for a bikini top for petite frames.


The Tona Top is a bralette bikini top with a deep scoop neck, showing off your newly flattered chest and an even longer neck. What’s not to love, right? Less is more when you’re trying to accentuate as much as you can. We also recommend that you stick to our textured pieces in Seafoam, Fairy Floss, and Misty Romance, as they come with thicker fabrics and linings - these pieces will give a fuller look with the extra volume.

We don’t just design stylish bikinis, but we also make sure they meet every girl’s needs! Trust us, whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got a perfect bikini for you. All these design elements are meant to make you as comfortable as you can be - and that’s exactly when your confidence shines through. We’d like to think the Willow Top and Tona Top have done just that, making it earn its top spots as our bestsellers. So, if you’re about to start your Blackbough collection, we suggest that you start with one of these! You can also check out our Blackbough reviews so you can hear it from our babes themselves!

Happy Earth Day from Blackbough

As we all know, Blackbough is for the girls who adore the beach – but basking in the sun, lounging on the sand, and taking a dip in the sea, all come with a major responsibility to protect Mama Nature. This is why for Earth Day 2022, we are giving our beloved community a way to join the reforestation movement and help save our earth.
