    Promising review: "Love, love, love this suit! It's comfortable, looks cute, and actually covers your butt instead of trying to climb up it. It has soft cups, but if you aren't very busty, it doesn't matter because the ruffle covers you up." —CB

    Promising review: "I'm definitely a pear-shaped girl and this swimsuit does wonders. It does so much for my figure and I feel so confident wearing it. I ordered an XL based on the reviews and it fits perfectly! Don't be afraid to order the XL if you're usually a medium, guys. You'll thank me later. I look hot! Definitely looks like it's way more expensive than what you're paying for." —Destiny Warren

    Promising review: "This is a great suit. I would like to note I was wearing a bathing suit for the first time in many seasons — so I wasn’t thinking ahead about wearing sunscreen under the torso area. Unfortunately I spent way too much time outdoors wearing this well-fitting, comfortable, fairly conservatively cut suit. It doesn’t ride up. I didn’t need the straps that came with it and I was delighted to find there were two options — wide straps and string spaghetti style. Nice to have that alternative. However, I burned my belly and now will have this lovely decorative lace element on my abdomen all summer long! Don’t be me — wear sunscreen EVERYWHERE!! Probably gonna buy another color, but the navy is gorgeous!!" —Ellen Delano

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 2–16 and in seven styles).

    15. A halter bikini to provide your chest with support in case you get ~wild~ and want to cannonball into the water.

    Promising review: "This bathing suit is adorable and super comfortable. Make sure to check the sizing though! This bathing suit runs large. I ordered the medium based on the sizing chart, which fit really well but I am definitely a size large with any other bathing suit (and sometime larges are even a little small). That being said the top is a little large but the bottoms are perfect. Can't wait to wear it at the beach." —Margaret

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–2XL).

    16. A floral monokini for when you wanna cover up but still show off a lil' cleavage. (If you've got it, flaunt it!)

    Promising review: "Love it! I’m 5'1 and a size 16. I got the XL and it fits great. My daughter actually said 'wow, that looks great!' and she is a sassy, opinionated teenager! Love it so much I just ordered a second one in black." —Jennifer M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 31 styles).

    Promising review: "Just received today and completely in love with my purchase! Practically waited outside for the delivery. True to size, as I ordered a medium. As far as the top, I am a 34D and I adjusted the straps the furthest they could go and it fits perfectly. The bottoms come past my belly button ring and are not too tight or anything. Plenty of breathing room on the top and bottom." —Brittany Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $17.28+ (available in sizes S–2XL and six styles).

    18. A long-sleeve rash guard top and ruched high-waisted bottoms for anyone who is looking to slay it at the beach while avoiding a nasty sunburn.

The top was perfect and I was expecting to hate the bottoms but they fit and looked great for my frame! Not only was this functional but super cute and I received a lot of compliments. I also did not get sunburned laying on the beach all day." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes 4–14 and four colors).

    19. A stylish white one-piece with a matching headband, because who wouldn't want a built-in accessory for their day by the pool?

    Promising review: "I’m always nervous about buying bathing suits on Amazon and I have had some bad experiences, but this one changed it all! This bathing suit is cute. The legs are cut just high enough and the bottoms go up to my belly button. The material is soft and stretchy, and it’s lined on the inside, so not see-through!!" —gchart

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 18 styles).

    Promising review: "I love this one-piece! It was the staple of my whole vacation! I took previous advice and ordered a size up and it was definitely a good decision. I have a hard time finding swimsuits that fit right but this one did not disappoint. I don't have much of a booty but this piece was still pretty 'booty-licious.' So many compliments on this and cannot wait for an excuse to wear it again, or buy another one in a different color! Highly recommended accessory: a bikini wax!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 18 styles).

    22. A matching jacquard top and crossover bottom set you can count on to be just as comfortable as your favorite sports bra and leggings duo (but without feeling sticky and sweaty because it's summer, dammit)

    Promising review (for the top): "I am very picky when it comes to swimsuits and this one did not disappoint. As a mom of four I feel great in it! It has just the right length and support for me and I can be active with the kids in the water. Feels like I’m wearing a type of sports bra." —Idaho Mom

    Promising review (for the bottoms): "The material is so soft and I love the texture. It sits so nicely on the body. It is pretty cheeky and does kinda scrunch up in the booty when you walk, but who doesn't love a lil extra butt cheek, amirite?" —Zoey

    Promising review: "This bathing suit was just what I needed for a food and drink–inclusive party. The fabric did not feel cheap and the color was super vibrant. I was very happy with the fit, quality, and style of this bathing suit. The backside provides coverage and is not high cut at all. Sexy but full coverage pretty much everywhere." —Rey

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 27 styles).

    24. A retro-styled one-piece to make you feel glamorous, even when you're sweating while reading a novel by the pool.

    Promising review: "This was my first attempt at buying a swimsuit online without trying it on, and I was super nervous...but I LOVE this suit. Finding swimsuits is always a hassle with my bust size (36D) but this keeps my boobs covered. I got an XL, and it's perfect. No cutting into my skin anywhere. I was so excited to find out that it has a lining, so there's a double layer. Definitely recommend!" —Idkeim

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 19 styles).

    25. A color-blocked one-piece or vibrant, cheeky two-piece from a celebrity-loved small business — if it's good enough for Kim K's Insta feed it's certainly good enough for yours!

    Promising review: "I immediately fell in love with this swimsuit and needed it relatively quickly. I decided to order an XL because I'm large chested and larges seem to be cut a bit small. The piece is well-made and perfect for a chill day on the beach. Very good quality and looks expensive. I got so many compliments on it and I plan on wearing it often! Best swimsuit purchase I've made!" —Liv Vernay

    Promising review: "OBSESSED! I cannot say enough good things about Wild Isles! I bought this suit on a whim and OH MY GOSH it is incredible. I honestly don't think I've ever felt comfortable or sexy in a swimsuit, but this one did the impossible! It is amazing quality, sexy, but still modest. It holds the girls in and feels like I could jump around and do flips without the dreaded "nip slip." Wild Isles, you guys totally know what you are doing!" —Madeline

    BuzzFeed / Heather Braga,

    Before you start yelling at me via the comments that you're tired of seeing this bathing suit, hear me out. I took my own advice and purchased this ever-popular suit and — WHATTYA KNOW — it's amazing. I was worried about putting it in the wash, but surprisingly all of them stayed intact. The only suggestion I have for you is to remember to put sunscreen on your lil' exposed mid-section. I forgot and paid the price with a strip of not-so-cute red across my entire body. Ouch.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 4–16 and 13 styles).

    31. cutout swimsuit featuring a darling scoop neck and a unique tie-dye pattern to ensure you stand out from all the other sunbathers at the beach.

    Promising review: "Super unique style that fits amazingly well. It has adjustable straps to help with that perfect fit. I got the tie-dye and the fabric Is good quality, not thin. It has nice padded inserts. The bottom has nice ruched stitching so you can adjust coverage from more coverage to less. I am considering getting another!" —shoppingbear

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 19 colors).

    32. A bandeau set made out of a quick-dry material that won't leave awkward wet spots on your cover-up when you throw it on in a rush after hearing the ice cream man is driving down your block. Ice cream >>> anything else in the summer.

    Promising review: "Talk about the best bathing suit ever!! I normally don't purchase bathing suits online, but this one is perfect. I followed the sizing guidelines, and it fits so true to size!! I love the adjustable straps as well. I'm top-heavy and nervous about a top not holding me up well, but this is the very few that have done the job. I will definitely be buying another one." —Erica Faircloth

    Get it from Amazon for $28.66 (available in sizes S–XL and 16 styles).
