Promising Review: "I am 5'10" and around 135 lbs. I love this suit. It's so beautiful. I was worried about having enough coverage on top, (32 DD). My seamstress sewed the plunge up about 1.5 inches, and now I am totally comfortable wearing it anywhere. This is my first Anthro suit and I will be buying others." —Lelers

7. A reversible bikini (so you're actually getting two suits for the price of one).

anthropologie.com

Promising Review: "This is the most comfortable-fitting bikini top I own! The wide straps sit really nicely on the shoulders and offer a good amount of support in the chest (I'm a 36 C and ordered a M). The adjustable back tie is great. This top is not only really nice for laying out, but is great for keeping you covered when in the ocean or pool. The bottoms that complete the set are amazing, as well!" —SAN90

Promising Review: "I absolutely love the pattern and cut of this bathing suit! My only complaint is the closure in the back is nearly impossible to do — aka I will never be putting the suit on alone because it took me 15 minutes of struggling to get the closure. Otherwise, I love it!" —casmcgrGet them from Lands' End: high neck top for $39 (available in sizes 0-12), the matching bottoms for $29 (available in sizes XS-L), the striped top for $45, and matching reversible bottoms for $35 (both available in sizes XS-L).

10. This one-piece that's almost totally backless...basically.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "This is a very nice suit. I am 5'5", 145lbs., and ordered a size 14. I normally wear a 10 but you always need to order up on suits. Fit perfect and covered my butt nicely, (and I have a big booty). No padding though, but you can put in your own if you need it." —Pamela C. Herman

Get it from Amazon for $63+ (available in sizes 4-14 and in green or black).

11. This bold-print two-piece meant to be totally comfortable.

swimsuitsforall.com

Promising Review: "I bought this suit because it was colorful and had a really pretty back. It fits me well in all the right places. It's snug and I usually wear an 8, so I ordered an 8. If you like some room, order a size up. But if you want it to hold you up in the behind, its perfect! Very flattering and oh so comfortable!" —AlyseB

Get them from Swimsuits For All for $54 (available in sizes 4-24).

12. This swimsuit that's almost prettier from the back than the front.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Worth every penny! I like to save money just as much as the next girl, but there is a time and place to splurge, (jeans, boots, and swimsuits, in my opinion). This suit is so beautiful, well-made, and it fits perfectly. I would buy it again in a heartbeat." —Sommer

Get it from Amazon for $150+ (available in sizes 4-14).

13. A floral bikini that has you (barely) covered.

shop.nordstrom.com

Promising Review: "I wear a 36C and the XL worked for me. It is so flattering on the bust and almost acts like a push-up bra, but no padding. I got so many compliments on the suit while I was in Mexico this month. Very comfortable, too." —MaryinWisconsin

Get them from Nordstrom: top for $119 and bottoms for $101 (both available in sizes XS-L). Also available in a striped pattern.

14. A strapless suit so you can bring all your gingham love to the pool with you.

jcrew.com

Promising Review: "Every one-piece swimsuit out there this season has a cheeky backside. Um, not all of us want our butts hanging out! Frustrated while shopping for a good coverage suit, I ordered this as a last resort with the intention that it would probably get returned. Whoa, was I wrong! As soon as I put it on, I knew this was the suit I had been searching for. It's so flattering on and has a very retro look. It's full-coverage without looking matronly. The leg is not cut too high and that adds to the retro vibe. And no butt cleavage! For reference, I'm 5'6", 130 lbs., and 34C. The size 6 fits me perfectly." —rkm1111

Get it from J Crew for $110+ (available in sizes 0-16 with DD cup or long torso options and in pink or navy).

torrid.com

Promising Review: "Ya'll, I tried this on while shopping with my sister-in-law because I was bored and I WILL BE BACK TO BUY IT! I am very chesty and have a short torso, but this swimsuit hugs everything just right! It's very flattering! AND the print? Lawd! I am so pasty but this swimsuit complements me so well!" —taygrayson

Get them from Torrid: top for $52 and bottoms for $34 (both available in sizes 00-6).

17. This tie-back bikini that's a little bit sporty and a lot of bit steamy.

19. This two-piece with a convertible top so it can go from halter to bandeau with just a few adjustments.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "This top has under-wire and sticky edges to hold it in place, (sticky like thigh-high pantyhose are sticky). It is very comfortable, and a nice, thick material. The quality is superb. It's worth the money." —sakikara23

amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $100 (available in sizes 12-26 and in black or blue).

21. An underwire two-piece that'll help give you a little extra support.

anthropologie.com

Promising Review: "I'm pretty flat-chested, so buying swimsuits is usually a pain. I ordered an XS (32A/00) in this suit and it fits like a charm. No gapping! The assorted/polka dot color way is so cute -- the blue is a more-vibrant aqua than pictured and the cream color actually makes me look tan. I initially ordered it with the mid-rise ruched bottom, but wound up exchanging for the high-waisted -- it just looks so much better." —cedarwaxwing

Get them from Anthropologie: top for $58 and bottoms for $48 (both available in sizes XS-XL and in a variety of colors).

22. A paneled one-piece with detachable straps so you can go from strapless to fully supported in no time.

amazon.com

Promising Review: "Very good quality. Swimsuit arrived on time and as pictured. I am 5'5" 145 lbs., and M fits perfectly." —tiaxtremeshopper

Get it from Amazon for $55 (available in sizes XS-L).

23. A (kinda) itsy-bity, teeny-weeny (black and white) polka-dot bikini that you'll wear for the first time today.

landsend.com

Promising review: "I have wanted a two-piece suit like forever. But, I could never find a top that covered my breasts properly and with support. I have purchased DDD tops before but they did not fit. So, I was skeptical about purchasing this but I went ahead and ordered it. Upon arrival, I cautiously tried the top. So amazed. It fit perfectly with full coverage and support!" —AnnC

Get them from Lands' End: top for $65 (available in sizes 0-26W) and the bottoms for $65 (available in sizes 2-26W).

24. This strappy one-piece that's totally secure while still being perfectly showy.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising Review: "I'm 5'2", generally a size 0-2 with a short torso, and this swimsuit fit perfectly in S. A little revealing in the bust area, as I have a larger cup size. But the suit still felt totally secure with no accidental flashing of my parts during pool times. Bum coverage is full. I think this would probably be too short in the torso on taller ladies. Definitely a great choice for petites! Got so many compliments on the suit from multiple friends." —KC

Get it from Amazon for $75+ (available in sizes S-XL and in pink, black, or red).

25. This scalloped Marysia two-piece you've been seeing all over Instagram.

zappos.com, zappos.com

Promising Review: "I love this top! Worth every penny! It's a nice, thick waffle material and it isn't see-through. It does run small, so size up. I wear a size 26/27 in jeans and wear a M bottom and I'm a 34D and the L top fits perfectly. This bikini is modest and super sexy at the same time, which I love! I wish I could afford one in every color!" —Morgan M

Get them from Zappos: top for $150 and bottoms for $150 (both available in sizes XS-L and in a variety of colors).

26. A plunging-back bathing suit with mesh panels on the side to help add a little dimension to a classic silhouette.

Get it from Amazon for $75+ (available in sizes XS-S).

27. An off-the-shoulders two-piece perfect for making a total fashion statement.
