    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A high-waisted bikini that'll have you looking like a '50s pinup in the blink of an eye.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE IT. I'm considering buying in another color I love it so much. The bottoms are super high-waisted, which accent curves without giving a 'diaper' appearance. The top has ties at the nape of the neck and the middle of the back to adjust the top, however the front that appears to be a tie is actually just a piece of fabric for show, it doesn't actually allow you to adjust the bikini from this part of the top. I'm convinced this suit looks good on EVERYONE. I was skimming through pictures before buying and was amazed at how every single body type looked like a rock star with this bikini on. It's a great buy." —Katie Fallowfield

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes S-4XL and in black, red, white, and green).

    2. A gorgeous off-the-shoulder look to step up your boring ol' bikini game.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I have a few colors in this style from Stone Fox. The cut is really flattering, they're cheeky enough to be sexy but not so cheeky that you feel overly exposed. Items from this brand do tend to run a bit small. I'm a 0 or 2 and own most of mine in S, just because they're more comfortable than the XS." —sarah77

    Get the top from Free People for $49.95 (available in sizes XS, S, and L) and the bottoms for $88 (available in sizes XS-XL and in seven prints).

    Promising review: "Based on the reviews of the other ladies I ordered the 4X. 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 $9.75+ (available in sizes XL-4XL and in eight colors).

    4. A palm-printed cutout swimsuit, because sometimes you want a one-piece and sometimes you want a two-piece, and yes, you can have it all.

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $20 (available in sizes 4-10).

    5. A flattering geometric-print high-waisted bikini that you're literally going to want to live in all season long.,

    Promising review: "I'm in love! Best swimsuit I've bought so far. Shopping for one isn't easy. I would recommend to anyone, at any size! Thanks to the reviews I was able to get the perfect size: 190 lbs., 38B, and got a large US 12-14." —Zeecam

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95+ (available in sizes M-2XL and in 19 colors).

    6. A floral-print one-piece sure to make sunny summer days even brighter.


    Promising review: "I loved how this bathing suits fits. I'm between a 14/16 dresses, 16 in jeans and XL/1X in tops. I went with the 2X because I didn't want to feel restricted. This bathing suit makes me feel so good — it's cute and bright and covers the front area without feeling like a grandma. I do wish for more chest support but that's with all bathing suits. Get it, you won't regret this purchase at only 14 bucks!" —Deegreat

    7. A customer-favorite backless one-piece that basically looks amazing on every human who ever walked the earth.,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this bathing suit! I ordered after the raving reviews hoping it would be as great as everyone was saying. I got the goldenrod, which looked exactly like the picture. I would recommend this swimsuit to anyone who wants to feel like an old-school pinup at the beach. I bought this for an upcoming cruise and I cannot wait to wear it. It was a must-have for my summer wardrobe!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and in 29 patterns).

    8. A sporty-looking bikini with a super-fun citrus print to have you ready for whatever adventures your beach day has in store.


    Promising review: "Very cute! I got a size 26, fearing it would be too small since it is juniors. I am apple-shaped with D/DD chest, normally wear a loose size 4X or slightly less looser 3X in Target plus for reference. Very cute and true to size: if you are a bit bigger it may still fit due to completely adjustable ties in the back — I would say it may fit up to a 5X and slightly larger chest as well. Very very comfortable!! if you are a 3/4X, the 26 is your best bet. Best part: The cups were plenty large enough for me!" — bbynatalie

    Promising review: "It was time to retire my mom suit and step up my game a little but I still wanted a one-piece. I'm a D cup and I was worried I wouldn't feel supported but I couldn't have been more wrong. I am 5'5" and 160 lbs. and bought a size 12, which fits perfectly." —Debs01

    Free People

    Promising review: "Short torso, 5'4" athletic build with 36D — ordered an 8. I'm thinking about adding another color because I'm so in love with this suit. On me it's a super-high, almost '80s waist, but snug enough to hold the ladies in place and show just the teeniest tiniest bit of sideboob." —heatherlyo

There is a lot of padding in the top (push-up), which I don't mind. I got a medium in the bottoms, which also fit just right. It's just high enough to cover my belly button. I can not wait to debut this with some cat-eye sunglasses." —Emily

    19. A vibrant mix-and-match bikini set. Orange you glad it's so affordable?,

    Promising review: "These high-waist bottoms are beautiful. The print and colors are very vibrant. Great quality. They dry quickly. Coverage is modest, which allows one to swim freely without worry. I must say, though, they run a tab large. I am 5'2 1/2" and weigh 120 . I got the medium. However, I am petite. So, they probably would fit a regular gal perfectly. (A tad too high up on the waist for me/petite)." —SunGal

This is hands down the nicest bathing suit I have ever worn. Great quality! The cut is super sexy and I have been prancing around my mirror all day. It gives my chest support and a nice uplift!

The cup size was too small on the top but the seller was amazing and let me exchange the top for a larger size. The top doesn’t seem as long as the pic but I am pretty excited about this swimsuit.

    Promising review: "I love this suit and got so many compliments on it. It’s very glamorous. Not only that, but even though it’s strapless, the top did not budge all day. Even with jet skiing. I’m glad, though, that I did not follow the recommended sizing listed with the product description. I’m a DD, and according to their chart I should have ordered an XL. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly. My measurements are 33/25/33." —ShoesAreAGirlsBestFriend
