PLEASE READ NOTES BEFORE ORDERING!
NOTE: There is no "built in bra" in the one piece suits!
That said, I found that a size L kept me held in WELL (even in the water) when I was a 38D.
I am 5'7. When I was a size 12/14, I would wear a size L or XL. Currently I am more of a 8/10 and would recommend a size M for someone my size.
I would suggest the smaller size if you're around my size and like to feel "held in" by a bathing suit, plan on being super active in the suit, or if you do lots of swimming or chasing little ones around. I would recommend the larger size if you are more of a poolside "lounger" or prefer a less "held in" feeling from a swimsuit.
If you are still skeptical, I did try ordering this swim bra and it definitely added more support. I don't feel like I personally needed it (it felt like overkill for me personally) but just offering this as a creative option for those concerned:
