    27 Of The Most Colorful, Fun, Ridiculous Swimsuits You Can Buy

    All the mermaids popping out of the water jealous of your suit are going to be like 🧜‍♀️ 👀.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A backless retro-inspired one-piece swimsuit that'll make you feel like you fell out of a very chic time machine.

    Promising review: "First I want to say that I RARELY write reviews but I am doing so in the hopes that others with my body type (short, plus-sized, AND top-heavy) will find this useful. This particular swimsuit is very well made! The colors are as vibrant as the picture, the material is thick like a typical swimsuit, and the breast area's lining feels as though it is doubled up. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of coverage that I got. The bottom is full coverage if you don't have much 'under cheek' as I like to call it. I will probably be ordering from them again! 😉" —VA_Gurl

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 16 varieties).

    2. A high-waisted colorblock bikini you'll love not just for the fun colors, but because it'll stay the heck *put* when you're gallivanting out on the beach. I've had this suit for two summers now and it's my go-to!

    The material on this suit is super sturdy and comfy, and though the bottoms are definitely on the ~cheeky~ side, it stays super secure. What I really love about this suit though is how fun it is to pair with any other bright colors, like yellows and pinks — it makes it super easy to accessorize for beach days. The straps are also adjustable so you can get your best fit! This suit feels a lot more expensive than the $25 I paid. 

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 20 colors).

    3. A crochet-trimmed one-piece with so many cute details it'll be a miracle if you even make it down to the pool, you'll be so busy admiring yourself in the mirror.

    Promising review: "To say I love this suit is an understatement! It’s amazing!!!! 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 $29.97+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 22 colors and prints).

    4. A twirly cutout swimdress so when someone amps up the pool playlist you can boogie in *style*.

    Psst — some reviewers recommend sizing up. 

    Promising review: "Stop looking and BUY this! This is the best bathing suit I've ever had. I took a chance on this swimsuit and OH. MY. GOD. It makes me look and feel like a bombshell! I bought a size up from my normal size and the fit is perfect! The material is fantastic. High quality and makes you feel supported. The chest area is so nice and the padding is beautiful. I'm definitely gonna buy another! I've already had so many compliments and friends asking where I found this gem! Buy. This. Bathing suit." —Asia Pasmat

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and in 19 prints).

    5. V-neck bikini and matching high-waisted bottoms reviewers *love* not just because they're cute as heck, but because the fabric is super comfy and supportive, complete with fully adjustable straps on the top.

    Promising review (for the top): "As a person with a bigger bust and body, I consider this top a DREAM. Not only did this not dig into my shoulders it’s the perfect combo of support and cute. I have been obsessing over this triangle top since I tried it on!" —A.L. 

    Promising review (for the bottom): "This fabric is so soft and I love how the swimsuit doesn't ride up as you are staying active. It has the absolute perfect amount of coverage but still emphasizes cheeks! My favorite part is the crossover band, it looks so good on every body!" —K.B.

    Promising review: "Love this swimsuit! I am small chested and was worried it would gape at the V-neck but I could do a cartwheel and feel secure in this suit.
