    1. A solid one-piece to help you live out your Baywatch dreams.


    Promising review: "Great price, great fit, quality material, and true to size. I was a little concerned at first when I didn't see any form of support but it fits great. I feel like everything is in place and secure. It's a bit cheeky, so if you're on the modest or conservative side you may need a cover up or shorts. I'm thinking about ordering it in another color. I'm 5'7", 170 lbs., and wear a C/D cup. For me, the medium was a good fit." —Channie Price

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–2X and in 15 colors and patterns).

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


    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 with 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 $19.99+ (available in sizes 2-16 and in six colors).

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

    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 lbs., 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

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

    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 lbs., 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 3XL or otherwise labeled as a US 12/14.

    Promising review: "I really love this swim suit. My honeymoon was here before I knew it, and I needed a last minute swim suit, 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.

    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 S-XXL and three patterns).

    18. 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.,

    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 self-conscious. But I’m going to say that 2018 is 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 $25.99 (available in sizes S-2X and in 10 colors and prints).

    19. A lace trim suit you can rock at the pool, or the beach, or even a waterpark. This baby is versatile!


    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 look-alike!" —Gina masucci

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes S-2X and in five colors and styles).

    20. A geometric print suit – you don't have to solve an equation to know that you + this suit = perfect match.,

    23. A tassel two-piece nobody will believe you got for less than $20. Come on! That's a steal.,

    Promising review: "Fast shipping, quality material, and matched the size chart. If you're stuck between two sizes, I'd say go with the larger. Fringe is shorter than the photo, but still covers the gap. Absolutely worth the money, as plus size two-piece suits can be kind of pricey. Definitely recommend." —dayna

    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 feels like its 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 this 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 32 colors, patterns, and styles).

    Promising review: "Hell yeah! Finally a body-hugging bathing suit that is true to size and fits over my big butt! 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 with my Victoria's Secret bathing suits that cost me $80. I'm planning to buy this in another color! :-)" —Lauren

    Promising review: "If I could leave more than 5 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.

    Promising review: "I was very nervous to buy this product as 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!! 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!" —Megan Nicole

    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 also was 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
