I, like many of you dear readers, simply can't resist a cute high-waisted swimsuit. Add a price tag under $25, and the deal is sealed.

I'm not a "beach person" by any stretch of the definition, and I jump into a pool maaaybe three times during a good summer. But when I came across this adorable retro-chic bikini on Amazon, I figured several thousand people couldn't be wrong. (Seriously, it has almost 4,000 reviews and a 4.2-star rating.)

Turn out, they weren't!

With its budget-friendly price, I was a little skeptical, especially because until then I'd never ordered any apparel — much less a bikini, which is notoriously hard to size correctly — from a brand I'd never heard of on Amazon. But as soon as it arrived, I knew I'd found my new go-to swimsuit.

In the past, I've typically had to order a size down for the top and a size up for the bottom, so my hopes for a swimsuit that didn't allow you to purchase separates weren't particularly high, but I was beyond pleasantly surprised to find that that both the top and bottom fit me perfectly. (For reference, I'm 5'7", 120 lbs., a 34B, and typically a size 4 or 6 in dresses/pants, and I ordered a size small.)

The halter top, which is lightly padded for support, ties both behind your neck and behind your back, so it's easy to adjust it to your preferred fit. BUT if the one-size-for-both-pieces deal doesn't work with your body, honestly, this swimsuit is such a steal that tbh it'd be worth it to buy in two different sizes if it meant ensuring your perfect fit! (FYI, a few reviewers have mentioned that some colors fit slightly differently than others, but for that for the most part, the swimsuit runs true to size.)

I've had it for two years now and worn it a handful of times and it's yet to lose its shape, get saggy, or otherwise look any different from the first time I tried it on.

And guess what?? It looks *amazing* on a range of body types. Big boobs, small boobs, curvy frames, athletic frames, pregnant people — you name it, this swimsuit looks great on it!

"Fits perfectly! I had heads turning. I am a 36C. I sometimes wear a large and an extra large depending on what it is. I got a XXXL. I weigh 195 lbs." —Jewel Robinson

"To my curvy, thick ladies, this bathing suit is an absolute must!!! I am about to buy it in every color it's so perfect! The quality feels super expensive, and the color is vibrant and just straight-out stunning. I am 5'6" and weigh about 195 lbs, I'm between a 38D-DD bust, and I wear a size 12-14 pants — 3XL fit perfect. . Pro: Bottoms cover all my stomach tiger stripes lol (stretch marks). The top band is not super tight so def will not cause rolling of the belly. You can wear it high or low and it will stay in place. Con: I wish the top had a wire for more support so this bathing suit will definitely be for a day of sunbathing at the pool or tanning at the beach, not for catching waves." —HoneyEyes0012

It's available in 18 charming retro designs (mostly floral, but also cherry and pineapple), and if a solid color is more your speed, it's got you covered too! You can find it in solid black, white, red, and green here.

"This is literally the best bathing suit I've ever owned. The quality is amazing! I'm 5'7" and 125 lbs and ordered a size small." —Destiny

I mean.

"This is my second review on a different color. I ordered a Large again since I'm prego and the old one fits perfect while I'm prego and loose while I'm not (but tight in legs). I am 5'8" and my pre-prego size is an 8. In the blue color it's a little snugger in the body and I don't have very much more room to stretch the bottom for my bump like I still do with the other one, but at least the top fits much much better in the blue and is not set apart as much as the tan. Here are pictures of both swimsuits in the exact same size, just different body shapes. This is way cute for maternity and I give it 5 stars on that front." —A.King

Can you even?

"This swimsuit is everything I hoped it would be. It fits perfectly and is so flattering! I’m 5’8" and 130 lbs and the small was great." —Shelley White

Because I can't.

"I'm 5'2", 120 lbs., and got a medium and it fits perfect. Love the coverage on the bottoms. The top is little revealing but I have a flat chest so it worked for me! So happy with this purchase." —B_Cakes

I just can't deal with how great...

"I am so happy I listened to the other reviews and bought this swimsuit. I am 5'6" and 135 lbs. I normally wear a 6, medium, and 34C, but I listened to the reviews and ordered up to a large. It fits me very well (could be a bit tighter at the top of the high waist but I have a fairly small natural waistline). It is so comfortable! For the price, this suit can't be beat. I will definitely feel more confident at the beach this summer!" —Hoxie88

This looks.

"I wear a size 18 pants and am a 38DD and the XXXL fit me perfectly. I have used it for about three weeks now and even took it to the beach and it holds up pretty well. The bikini top doesn't have wire, so it is comfortable, and sand is not an issue with this suit. I highly recommend this bathing suit. Truly!" —Alexis Correa

On everyone!

"FIrst of all I have to say that finding a bathing suit that fits me right has been a lifelong struggle. I'm 5'10", 210 lbs., and have an apple shape (top heavy, smaller bottom). I wear 12-14 bottoms and XL top. This suit fits like a dream and balances me out. I am also always worried about the girls — they don't always fit and like to poke out a bunch. This suit fit and fully covered my 38DDs. I got so many compliments on this suit! I would love to purchase another one to mix and match." —T. Cox
