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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $31.99+ (available in sizes 2-16 and in 11 colors).

    2. A velvet lace-up you can customize based on your height so it fits your perfectly. Plus, it will look just as good at the pool as it does with a skirt at dinner.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this swimsuit! It seems to be very good quality material; it’s very well lined!!

    Lily Pulitzer

    Promising review: "I saw this suit today and immediately was drawn to the beautiful blues and pinks of the pattern. The colors are much more luscious in person!

    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 $28.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and in 22 colors and patterns).

    11. A wide strap scoop bikini top and crossover high waisted bottoms in the same style as those viral TikTok leggings, so you know the suit has to be just as good (or maybe even better).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this swimsuit, and I’m so happy I purchased it. The fit, quality, and appearance are all everything I hoped it would be and more! Highly recommended!! If you’re on the fence about getting this-wait no longer!! Exceeded my expectations! I love it!! I wasn’t extremely crazy about the extra material on the bottoms and wanted a smaller size but didn’t want to lose the size large on the top of the swimsuit. Other than that I’m in love with it. We love it so much that I ordered my daughter one as well!!" —AlisonD

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 39 colors and patterns).

    13. A ruffle gingham one piece so you can ~check~ "Have great style" off your vacation to-do list. Throw this in your bag, and you'll be G2G.

    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. 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 $28.99 (available in sizes M-3X and in four colors and patterns)

    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. This will make you look bomb whether you have all the curves or none of them." —Christino

    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 $29.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and 16 colors and patterns).

    Get it from Amazon for $21.55 (available in sizes 0-18 and 24 colors and patterns).

Great bikini, especially for the price." —Ashley B.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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!" —Lovabull Books

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in 20 colors and patterns).

    27. A V-neck ruffle one-piece 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

    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 $33.99 (available in sizes S-6X and 24 colors and patterns).

    29. A deep v bikini top and high-waisted bottoms specifically made so the top is fully adjustable, meaning you can make it fit (and support) you, especially if you have bigger boobs.

    Wild Isles

    I recently got this swimsuit, and let me tell you, I cannot wait to wear it this summer. The top is SO comfortable. I wasn't sure if it was going to fit me (I don't have the biggest chest), but I was able to adjust it perfectly with the straps, so I felt completely supported yet sexy. I love that the top can work for anyone with different boob sizes. I actually got the top with the cheeky bottoms, but that's one thing I love about this site — you can pick whatever style of top and bottom works for you. I'm counting down the days until it's warm enough to wear this baby.

    BTW — Wild Isles is a woman-owned small biz that has been making swimsuits that work for bigger busts from Minneapolis, Minnesota since 2019!.

    Promising review (for the top): "This is the best swim top I’ve ever worn. I’ve never found any top that contained my e-cup so well and so comfortably. I wish I could buy this top in every color. I'm so excited for summer so I can wear it all the time." —Caroline M.

    Get the set from Wild Isles: $95 (for the top; available in sizes 1-4 that fit bra sizes 28C-44H in four colors) and $75 (for the bottoms; available in sizes 2/24 and in three colors).

    30. A tank-and-short set great for anyone who wants a little more coverage yet still wants to feel stylish.

    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 $30.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL, 18-22 and in 29 colors and patterns).

    31. 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.

    model wearing the suit with high waisted bottom and spaghetti strap top with colorblocks of pink and red
    Left on Friday

    This is one of my favorite swimsuits, and it has been for the past couple of years. The colors in it are amazing, and it's SO soft. Like I think it may be the softest suit I've ever worn (I mean that in the best way possible). I wore it a lot two summers ago, and then I sadly didn't have it with me last summer, and I missed it dearly. I was reunited with it recently, and now I am ready to rock it again this summer because this suit deserves all the glory. I feel so stylish when I wear it yet I know that I can actually swim and do other water sports in it as well (I have yet to try surfing, but maybe this year is my year! Haha) The fabric also dries quickly and is fade and snag resistant, so I def think it's worth the higher price tag.

    BTW— Left on Friday is a small woman-owned business creating swimsuits that are cute and can be worn for water sports!

    Promising review: "I love this suit! It's super comfortable with fabric that holds everything in but still super soft and straps that don't dig in. I love the design of the party wave colorway and that both the top and bottom mix and match with solid colors too. This is my go-to suit!" —Emma

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

    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. If you are thinking about purchasing this, definitely do. You will be so happy with this suit!" —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in 42 colors and patterns).

    33. A cut-out one piece made in two different torso lengths to ensure that you get a great fitting one piece that works for you.

    Get it from Kitty & Vibe for $95 (available in two lengths, sizes S-3X and in two colors).

    34. A tassel-trim 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 $29.99 (available in sizes 4-16 and in 11 colors and patterns).

    35. 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: "I 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 $30.99 (available in sizes S-4X and in eight colors and patterns).

    36. A ribbed bikini and high-waisted bottoms you'll probably proclaim to everyone "~Olive~ it so much" because it's a simple color yet the ribbed fabric adds a bit of extra style.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Talk about the best bathing suit ever!! I normally don't purchase bathing suits online, but this one is perfect. I followed the sizing guidelines, and it fits so true to size!! I love the adjustable straps as well. I'm top-heavy and nervous about a top not holding me up well, but this is the very few that have done the job. I will definitely be buying another one." —Erica Faircloth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.66 (available in sizes S-XL and in 16 colors and patterns).
