    2. A crocheted monokini that'll give you an edge but still keep your boobs supported (because that's important too).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I never leave reviews, but this is by far the best swimsuit I have ever had. I have DD boobs and normally wear a size 8. I did what the other reviewers suggested and got a size down (so I purchased a size 6) and it fits perfectly! Also, between having large boobs and chasing a toddler around, I was worried about the boob area not being supportive enough, but this is the ONLY swimsuit I have worn that completely supports my boobs. It also came with two sets of straps with two places to put them. Overall, this is a great, cute, sexy, and supportive one-piece." —Hope Brown

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 2–16 and in seven colors).

    3. A velvet lace-up you can wear to the pool and then add a skirt for a perfect night-out outfit.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Can I say how much I am in LOVE with this swimsuit! I am a size 18/20 depending on the item, and I ordered this in a 2XL. It fits perfectly, allows you to choose the level of appeal you want with the zipper, and the print is AMAZING. I feel like going to the pool right now just so someone can see me in it!" —Mrs. M

    Get it from Amazon for $22.89+ (available in sizes S–2XL and in seven colors).

    5. A suit to let everyone know what your ~vibes~ are for your whole vacation.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this one-piece! It was the staple of my whole vacation! I took previous advice and ordered a size up, and it was definitely a good decision. I have a hard time finding swimsuits to fit right, but this one did not disappoint. I'm 5'9", 140 pounds, and 32D. I don't have much of a booty, but this piece was still pretty 'bootylicious.' I got so many compliments on this and cannot wait for an excuse to wear it again, or buy another one in a different color!" —Amazon Customer

    Swimsuits For All

    Promising review: "I followed the measurements, and it fits my body amazingly! I’ve never felt this good in a swimsuit, and I haven’t worn a bikini since I was a little girl. This is hands down the best swimsuit I have ever purchased. Plus, it's great quality! I receive so many compliments on it!" —SaraB

    Get it from Swimsuits for All for $61.75 (available in sizes 6–24).

    7. A one-piece with extra coverage, perfect for when you're diving around while playing beach volleyball.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was looking for something with more coverage and more support, and this suit gives me both. I ordered the size I usually wear in pants and tops, and it was perfect. I love the style and colors of this suit. With the price and quality being so good, I may just have to get another one!" —fonts29

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and in 14 styles).

    8. A suit so gorgeous you won't have a ~ruff~ time putting it on in the morning when the temperature on your vacation is just a bit cooler than you thought it would be. (You'll do anything to show this number off.)

    Summersalt

    Get it from Summersalt for $95 (available in sizes 2–14 and in three colors).

    9. A retro one-piece that'll have you showing everyone your true ~stripes~.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "After reading reviews and seeing similar body types to mine, I decided to take the big leap and buy this suit. I'm about 200 pounds and wear a 16–20 depending on the brand. I have a VERY difficult time finding bathing suits that fit the way I want. I took the advice of other reviews and purchased the XXXL, otherwise labeled as a US 12/14. HOLY HECK, THIS ONE BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER!!! The fit is perfect. I'm very glad the bust area had more fabric! I may just buy this in every color." —Emma Maas

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 30 styles).

    10. A high-waisted number designed to look just as good on a beach chair as it does when you're riding the waves. Yes, you can have it both ways.

    Left on Friday

    Get it from Left on Friday for $85 (for the top; available in sizes XS–XL and in six colors) and $85 (for the bottom; available in sizes S–XL and in six colors).

    11. A glam two-piece you'll definitely be feeling yourself in and forcing whoever you're with to take a photo of you because the world needs to see this.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this six stars! To my curvy ladies, this bathing suit is an absolute must! I'm about to buy it in every color, it's so perfect! The quality feels super expensive, and the colors are vibrant and just straight-up stunning. I'm 5'6" and weigh about 195 pounds, with a 39D–DD bust, and usually wear a size 12–14. The 3XL fits perfectly." —HoneyEyes0012

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–4XL, in 18 prints, and in black and red).

    12. A striped one-piece made with recycled plastic so you can feel good that your purchase does a little bit for the environment.

    Get it from Madewell for $75 (available in sizes XXS–3XL).

    13. A two-piece with a flounce crop top that even *ruff-led* water can't stop you from looking and feeling amazing in.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I really love this swimsuit. My honeymoon was here before I knew it, and I needed a last-minute swimsuit, so I took a chance on this one and it was perfect. I swam in it, I wore it on the beach, I snorkeled in it, and I even used the top as a crop top. I just LOVE this suit. The Prime shipping made it easy to choose to buy, and the quality of the suit is great. I want it in every color now. I also really loved the little waist strap. I was not so sure of it, but it was so cute, and I did not even feel it. 10/10!!" —Taylor Galas

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL, 18, and 20 and in 41 styles).

    14. A high-waisted bikini you'll have no ~mixed~ feelings about. You'll love this baby from the second you take it out of the box. Promise.

    ModCloth

    Get it from ModCloth for $59, for the top, and $55, for the bottom (both available in sizes XS–4XL and in two colors).

    15. An adjustable striped style that'll help you ~wrap~ up any past feelings you had about one-pieces not being cool. We aren't in high school gym class anymore.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This fit great and definitely worked with my 20-weeks-pregnant belly. The white fabric didn’t turn see-through even when wet, and the suit has held up well! One note for nursing mothers: The tie on the side is a working tie and can be undone for easy access if the baby needs to eat. I didn’t use that feature, but I know it’s a bonus when you're in that stage of life!" —cougs4life

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and in five colors).

    16. A simple two-piece with a sporty feel to make everyone think you're super athletic, when in reality you can't remember the last time you made it to the gym.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I actually feel confident in this. Like, WOW. I bought this on a whim because I really love the style, but I’ve always been way too scared to actually try something like it. I’m a size 12, have stretch marks, and honestly, I'm very body-conscious. But I’m going to say that it's the year of the thick girl. This will make you look bomb whether you have all the curves or none of them." —Christino

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and in 21 colors).

    17. A long-sleeved style to keep you protected but fashionable, which is basically the best of both worlds.

    HM

    Get it from H&M for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    18. A lace-trim suit you can rock at the pool or the beach or even a water park. This baby is versatile!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "To say I love this suit is an understatement! It’s amazing!!!! I’m 5'6" and weigh about 145 pounds. I like to be covered, but I still want something fun. This totally did the trick and cost wayyyy less than an Anthropologie lookalike!" —Gina Masucci

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and in 11 colors).

    19. A two-piece — it's not worth the ~tassel~ to pretend you won't want to wear this all the time.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this swimsuit!!!! I have been eyeing similar swimsuits all the Instagram bloggers wear (by a brand I won’t name :)) but couldn’t justify spending that much on a swimsuit! This is an awesome dupe, and the quality is great. I listened to the reviews that recommended sizing up, and I’m glad I did." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes 4–16 and in 18 colors).

    20. A rainbow style that, when you wear it, you'll feel like jumping ~b-right~ in the water and having the time of your life. Go for it!

    Target

    Get it from Target for $14.99 (for the top; available in sizes XS–XL and D/DD) and $17.99 (for the bottom; available in sizes XS–XL).

    21. A cutout one-piece you can throw in your carry-on bag to have it immediately ready when you reach your destination. There's really no reason to wait to wear this.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am completely in LOVE with this swimsuit! I was worried that since I'm plus size and have a larger top half, I wouldn't feel covered, but it covers everything well and comes with a halter strap to keep everything in place. The XXL perfectly for someone who's a 16/18, XL/XXL in most clothes. It is flattering and a fairly modest one-piece, but still sexy, though! I'm really happy with it. It's made of good material, and it doesn't feel cheap." —Caleb Voss

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and in three colors).

    22. A vintage-inspired two-piece to help you fulfill your sailor dreams without, you know, actually having to be a sailor because that's a lot of work.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love the suit. I prefer high-waisted suits these days. Bottoms fit well, the top was a bit loose, but really, who is the same size on bottom and top? I may just buy another suit a size down for the top 'cause it's so cheap." —Britney M. Child

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes S–4XL and in six styles).

    23. A reversible bikini top and bottom perfect for when you need to pack light but don't want to wear the same suit every day. Just keep switching the sides, and you have several different options!

    Aerie

    Get it from Aerie for $20.97, for the top, and $17.97, for the bottom (both available in sizes XXS–2XL and in two colors).

    24. A retro one-piece to help you complete that pinup-girl look you've been trying to achieve.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ummmm. Wow. I'm a 16/18 DD, and love this. I feel so pretty in it. It fits lovely and is very supportive. I know it is very reasonably priced, but it feels like it's great quality. If it can last two vacations this summer, I will be happy. Curvies: This is for you! Cups are supportive, and it ties at the neck. I'm sure it will hurt after a while, but something about this cut and color is so pretty. This bathing suit is seriously a great value and a great fit." —Christina Nagy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes M–5XL and in 16 styles).

    25. A string bikini — sometimes simple is the best way to go. Wear it alone or throw on a fun cover-up to complete the look!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Hell yeah! Finally, a body-hugging bathing suit that is true to size and fits over my big butt! The suit is cheeky but in a sexy way. It fits perfectly! My boyfriend loves this suit, and the baby pink color is adorable. The material is good and is comparable to my Victoria's Secret bathing suits that cost me $80. I'm planning to buy this in another color! :-)" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 35 colors).

    26. A bikini top and bottom to help you ~seas~ the day and have the best vacation ever.

    Get it from Reformation for $68 (for the top; available in sizes XS–XL and in two styles) and $68 (for the bottom; available in sizes XS–XL and in three styles).

    27. A strappy binkini you'll feel so good in, you'll want to show it off to all your friends and probably even strangers, too.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If I could leave more than five stars for this swimsuit, I WOULD!!!! I want to scream from the rooftops about how amazing the fit and feel of this beautiful set are. I put this on and immediately felt like a million dollars. The top boasts padded cups and adjustable everything, making it fit well no matter your size. I generally have a hard time staying in bikini cups, and I was able to tighten the back AND sides of this suit for a perfect fit. Well-made, well-loved, and I will wear this suit to EVERY beach and pool party from now on!!" —Annie Hinz

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes M–3XL and in eight styles).

    28. A cutout one-shoulder suit — all your friends will say "Beach, please" when you tell them how much you paid for it.

    Cupshe

    Promising review: "This is such a cute suit! It's unique and fashionable. I was a little worried about the white being sheer, but the fabric is actually thick and durable and provides great coverage. I’ve received so many compliments." —Nicole Soukup

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and in five colors).

    29. A tankini top and bottom to show the world that you do, in fact, have a ~wild~ side, even if you don't always show it to people.

    Old Navy

    Get it from Old Navy for $34.99, for the top, and $24.99, for the bottom (both available in sizes XS–2XL and in five styles).

    30. A lace-up one-piece that'll have you giving anyone who says you don't need another swimsuit the ~cold shoulder~. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this bathing suit. I think it is perfect for thicker girls; it fits just right and has enough support so that things stay where they are supposed to be! Will probably be ordering more in different colors." —Rachel Green

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, 18, and 20 and in 27 colors).

    31. A spliced-print one-piece that's basically ~tie-dye~ for. Yeah, it's that great.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I love this suit. It is super flattering and cute! The suit is well-made and provides good support in the chest area, though a little low-cut. I bought a size 12, and it fits great (usually I wear a 12 or 14 suit)." —jennyB8

    Get it from Nordstrom for $119.95 (available in sizes 4–12).

    32. A bandeau set available in so many colors and patterns, you might as well add a bunch to your cart so you never have to stop wearing this one.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy a bathing suit from Amazon, especially because my bottom half is usually larger in bathing suit sizes than my top. After reading reviews and looking at people's photos of the suit, I decided to purchase it. I am so happy I did. I am so impressed with the quality. The suit is made out of a nice thick, comfortable material. It's a very flattering suit, and I normally do not feel very comfortable in bathing suits. If you are thinking about purchasing this, definitely do. You will be so happy with this suit!" —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 36 colors).

    33. A mesh dress style you'll truly ~shine~ in, and everyone will be asking you where you got it from.

    Torrid

    Get it from Torrid for $76.65 (available in sizes 00–6 and in cup sizes C/D–DD/F).

    34. A floral-print off-the-shoulder bikini that doesn't need to grow on you. You'll be in love with it as soon as it arrives at your door!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was very nervous to buy this product because I have had some bad experiences with clothing online. But the price and the customer pictures were too much to pass up. I am so glad I purchased this!! It fit well, and it is super cute! It's not top-of-the-line quality, but a far better product than I expected for the price. It might be an issue for someone who is busty, as it doesn't have any support. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it, and I can't wait to take it out to the beach!" —Lovabull Books

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 14 colors).

    35. A tie-front suit that'll make packing for your trip super easy. Throw this in your carry-on, and you're basically GTG.

    T.J. Maxx

    Get it from T.J. Maxx for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in two colors).

    36. A nautical swimsuit dress more than 2,000 people have given five-star reviews, so you know it has to be great.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this bathing suit! I'm tall and curvy, and let me tell you, this suit really makes me feel very sexy. It's hard to find a bathing suit in stores because they always turn out too short, but this fits. I can't wait to wear it out to the beach! I feel confident." —W.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–6XL and in 19 colors).

    37. A lace-up one-piece that'll have people saying "Ohhhh" as you walk away from them.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $118 (available in sizes XS–XL and 1X–3XL).

    38. A tank-and-short set with a little more coverage, but not so much that you feel like you're wearing a big sack.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this bathing suit. I am not one to show too much skin, so I was looking for a new bathing suit I would feel comfortable in while in Hawaii. The bottoms are cute little high-rise shorts that fit nicely. The top has a fun, flowy look that allows me to feel comfortable but look cute at the same time. It was also a nice top to just wear while walking along the beach and shops. I definitely recommend this for those looking to stay comfy and not worry about showing off too much skin!" —Kassy

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, 18, and 20 and in 25 colors).
