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

13. A crocheted monokini which may put your granny's crochet projects to shame.

Promising review: "I never leave reviews but this is by far the best swimsuit I have ever had. I recently had a baby so my 'problem area' is my lower tummy. This suit totally covers it and not only do I feel comfortable and supported, I actually feel sexy and confident in it :) 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. They are lifted and held in place while I chase a toddler around the pool. 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 $14.99+ (available in 15 colors, sizes 2–16).

I may just buy this in every color." —Emma MassGet it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 22 colors, sizes S–3XL).
