Get it from Swimsuits for All for $46.20 (available in sizes 4–24 and in four colors/patterns; you can purchase different size tops and bottoms).

2. A top with lace-up details you can mix 'n' match with the bottoms of your choice — because you were gonna go to Target anyway, so why don't you pick up a cute bikini while you're there?

goto.target.com

Promising review: "This top is so cute! I am a 32 DDD and the D/DD fits well. The strings aren't too long after the suit is tied and it fits tight around my chest/waist. When most XLs can't be tied tight around my chest/waist. Love the crisscross details in the front. Overall love this suit!" —kelli1450

Get the top from Target for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and D/DD, and in black, white, and plum) and bottoms in a variety of styles for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in several colors).

3. A knotted-top swimsuit in some of the most adorable prints under the sun — you'll be tempted not to snag all of 'em.

anrdoezrs.net

Promising review: "I normally wear the triangle string bathing suit top but decided to try this style for something different. I was surprised at how much I liked it. I liked the new green color. I’m small-chested, 34B in a bra size, and I bought the medium top — you have to go up a size in Old Navy bathing suits compared to the Gap ones. Old Navy bathing suits are made very well — they last several years. This particular top also has more coverage than the triangle string top." —Byrdie from Nantucket

Get the top from Old Navy for $22+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and in six colors/patters) and the high-waisted bottoms for $22+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and in five colors/patterns).

4. A cute retro-style set with a twist-top detail that's just begging you to 'gram it.

walmart.com

Promising review: "This suit is adorable. It is comfortable, but gives me just enough coverage. Roomy bottoms fully cover my butt without causing wedgies, and the extra panel of fabric on the front camouflages my belly. The top offers medium support, and is comfortable. I'm a size 20/22. I own three of these bikinis in size 2XL. Fantastic value for the price." —Nancy

Get it from Walmart for $36.64 (available in sizes S–XL and in seven colors/patterns) or for $29 (available in size 3XL and in black dot and red dot).

5. An off-the-shoulder ruffled high-waist bikini that screams, "Thank god it's summer already!!"

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Based on the reviews of the other ladies I ordered the 4XL. I'm about 250 lbs and normally wear a 18/20 in clothes, and my breasts are about a full C. The swimsuit came fast and fit perfect! I can't wait to wear it on vacation." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $23.81+ (available in sizes X–4XL and in five colors).

6. A high-waisted bikini in tons of vibrant and playful prints to put a smile on your face before you've even hit the beach.

Get the top from ModCloth for $49 (available in sizes XS–3X and in six prints) and the bottoms for $39 (available in sizes XS–4X and in seven prints).

8. A vintage-style high-waist bikini with an easily adjustable top that'll instantly transport you to the 1950s for under $25.

amazon.com, Emmy Favilla / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "Love this bathing suit! It's really cute and sexy. I recently had a baby and don't feel too comfortable right now with wearing a bathing suit but I gave this one a try and I'm happy with it. Makes me realize how although I want to lose weight I don't have to be a size 0 or 2 or be 20 years old (I'm 37 lol) to wear a cute red bathing suit. If my measurements help someone in getting an idea of what size to get, I weigh 186 lb, I'm 5'3", 38-35-42 and I bought the XXXL and it fit great — maybe just a little loose but that's ok because I don't want it to be too tight and uncomfortable, so it's perfect." —Lu360

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–4XL and in eight colors and 23 patterns).

9. A polka-dot-print halter top and ruffle-bottom swimsuit, because everyone needs at least one teeny-weeny polka-dot bikini at this price.

figleaves.com, figleaves.com

Promising review: "I bought this to wear for my holiday next month; I’ve never been happy with a ‘structured’ bikini before as they’ve always looked so matronly (I may be in my fifties but I don’t have to dress like my grandmother...!) but this is so pretty and comfortable, and discreetly supportive that I’m completely converted!!" —Neppyjane

Get the top from Figleaves for $27.50 (available in sizes 32C–38G and in five colors) and bottoms for $17.50 (available in sizes 8–18 and in three colors).

10. A gorgeous wrap-style swimsuit with convertible straps and removable padding that you can literally buy four of for under $100 — not that we're saying you should, or anything.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Sooo in love with this! I'm 5'2", 130ish lb. I got a medium and it's perfect! Been wanting this style suit and most either have an odd fit in the top or the bottoms are too small. The bottoms are not cheeky, so if that is what you are looking for, you won't be happy. The top is great, as the straps are adjustable and convertible. They can be worn normal, crisscross, or you can tie around the neck like I did. The blue is an amazing color and the fabric is great. Highly recommend. I will be buying more." —Cat C.

Get it from Amazon for $24.55 (available in sizes S–XL and in nine colors/patterns).

11. A patterned high-waist bikini with pretty detailing for a seriously standout look.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I ordered an XL in this swimsuit and I was very unsure of how it was going to fit. I hate returning things that I bought online, so I really took a gamble when ordering this suit. My whole life I've struggled with my weight and feeling comfortable while still being able to feel beautiful. When I put on this suit, I wasn't expecting it to look as good as it did. Typically, bathing suits look very different on me than on the model, but I have to say that the picture was quite accurate. This swimsuit fits me in all of the right places and I feel so confident wearing it! This was a VERY GOOD buy!!"—Rashelle Ibrahim

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–4XL and in four patterns).

12. A string bikini eagerly awaiting that tropical vacation you've been thinking about planning.

amazon.com

Promising review: "FINALLY, a suit cut to fit these curves! I'm 5'3, 165 lb, 38DD. Ordered size XL and this bikini provides enough coverage for me to keep it it sexy without being obscene. Generously cut and well made and colors pop against my skin. Loved it so much I ordered in several colors and will definitely purchase again!" —Brandy Jackson

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 27 colors/patterns).

amazon.com

Promising review: "I am 5'6 and 145 lb and 34C, waist 29. I ordered a large. The top fits perfectly like a good strapless bra. Most strapless bathing suits don't have good coverage or support, but I felt like this was a perfect top. The material is also good quality. The bottoms fit pretty well, but I might get a size XL. If you have a curvier bottom you may need to go a size up. I am right in the middle where it just fits with a large, but might be more comfortable with an XL. Overall one of the best bathing suits I have tried on." —Jeanne Worgul

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and in six patterns).

21. A strappy bandage swimsuit, which looks more Frederick's of Hollywood than Walmart, but hey, we'll take it either way at that price.

walmart.com

22. A straight-cut bikini top with removable straps and cups and matching high-waist bottoms, for a simple but oh-so-chic swim look.

anrdoezrs.net, anrdoezrs.net

Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this bikini. I was kinda nervous about the sizing because plus-size bikinis can be tricky sometimes but this fit absolutely perfect. I ordered a 1X in the bottom and top and they both fit great. I’m a 36D and the top didn’t pinch like I expected it would and I feel like even if you are bigger chested you could still have room. I’m between a 16 and 18 in bottoms and the bikini bottom fit almost perfect but just a tiny bit big and by tiny bit I mean like still wearable and in no way a problem when you go for a swim." —Karla T.
