    Promising review: "I was skeptical when it came to ordering a swimsuit online, but I saw such good reviews and customer images. It fits perfectly! The bottoms and the top! I ordered the floral print and it is so beautiful, I can’t wait to wear it. I love how the top has cups in it for additional support and the neckline is beautiful." —Kristen

    Promising review: "Obsessed with this swimsuit!!!! Have been eyeing similar swimsuits all the Instagram bloggers wear (by a brand I won’t name :)) but couldn’t justify spending that much on a swimsuit! This is an awesome dupe and the quality is great. I listened to the reviews that recommended sizing up one and I’m glad I did." —Stephanie

    4. A perfectly plain scoop-back swimsuit in a cool ribbed material you'll never get tired of.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $45 (available in sizes 2–14 and four colors).

    Promising review: "I searched very long and hard for a black one piece and this one is so cute and can even double as a bodysuit. It isn’t too exposing but if you have some junk in the trunk like I do, then it will show. Overall the suit is comfy and the ribbed texture makes it super chic." —LEJo

    5. A celestial-print cutout bikini, because you and this gorgeous look? It's ~written in the stars~.


    Get it from Amazon for $25.95+ (available in sizes 0X–4X and eight prints).

    Promising review: "This swimsuit is AWESOME! I usually get my swimsuits at Torrid but couldn’t shell out $80 for a swimsuit but this is a fantastic dupe. Great quality and so cute on! Definitely feel great in this!" —Lauren

    6. A plunging one-piece with a lace-up front so you can ~customize your cleavage~.

    Many reviewers recommend sizing up in this!

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 20 colors).

    Promising review: "This bathing suit it gorgeous. Not sheer; great quality. Love the high waisted look and how you can adjust the strings in the front. The back is defiantly cheeky. It's a sexy suit, but still classy in my opinion." —Jen

    7. A cut-out swimsuit for all the look of a two-piece, but without having to worry about your top or bottoms flying off on a waterslide or huge wave.


    Reviewers note there's not a lot of chest support, so if you need that, try another suit!

    Get it from American Eagle for $35.97 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and four patterns).

    Promising review: "I thought the quality was amazing and it fit almost perfect. The top was just a tad small but everything covered well while I was swimming. Great product!!!" —Josie

    8. A cheery halter bikini to make you feel like a *fine*apple.


    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in a polka-dot version).

    Promising review: "I love this set! Fits well, the straps don't dig into the back of my neck, and the print is super cute. I actually like the bottoms even better than my Target brand ones." —Rebekah A. Wishart

    9. A one-piece swimsuit with a crocheted front and removable straps you can wear as a bandeau, halter neck, or with a crisscross back. It'll be totally worth the slightly awkward tan lines.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 4–16 and eight colors).

    Promising review: "I never write Amazon reviews, but I had to write one here because I love this swimsuit! Cute, flattering, and great quality for a really low price! This fit like a glove and was exactly the look I was going for. The colors in the photos are pretty true to life, but they still don't do it justice — all of the ones I ordered were beautiful, rich colors. I loved all seven colors and wanted to keep them all. I finally narrowed it down and ended up keeping the navy one and the green one. I also love that the straps are changeable." —Alex L.

    10. A scalloped bikini that'll be far more adorable than the sea creature it's named for.


    Sea scallops are delish, tho.

    Get it from Target: the top for $29.99 (available in sizes 32A–38DDD) and the bottoms for $17.99 (available in sizes S–XL).

    11. A one-piece with ruching, mesh inserts, and a high neck for a touch of elegance. It's basically the black tie dress of swimsuits.


    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 0/2–20 and 20 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I bought this suit on a whim, after reading an article on social media, of how much this item was selling on Amazon. Honestly, I haven't found a comfortable, decent looking bathing suit in so many years, and after spending lots of money on expensive brands, I truly didn't expect much from a $25 suit, but, after spending an afternoon reading reviews, I was sold. Also, according to the size chart, I was too big for the available sizes, but thanks to the reviews of the lovely ladies here (thanks!) I figured out a size 16 Plus just might work. I have Prime but, the suit was sent via USPS and it was delayed by a day, which was very inconvenient, as I wanted to wear it to the beach, but, oh well. Anyway, when I finally got it and put it on...WOWZA! absolute perfection! Oh my goodness! The fabric is the right thickness, without discomfort. I bent over and it covers everything, and it looks so stylish! I was a bit concerned the mesh would make it look tacky, but it just looks very classy. DO NOT HESITATE! I will buy it in more colors, it is gorgeous. I can't vouch for longevity, or how it will be after wet, but the hundreds of positive reviews say it all." —alfie fernandez

    12. A bandana-print one-piece so you can bring a little bit of the yeehaw trend to your beachwear.

    Forever 21

    Yes, I did watch The Notebook last night on TV, and yes I did cry.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–4XL and in black and red; also available in a buuuunch of patterns listed separately).

    Promising review: "I could not believe I found this swimsuit on Amazon. People will ask you where you got it, how much it is and you will just smile and watch their reaction as you say 'Amazon.' Fits beautifully. Thank you for all the reviews and pics girls, you are amazing!" —Zaki

    14. A high-cut, scoop front and back one-piece you've seen in, like, every magazine and Instagram. Now you can have one, too!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.55+ (available in sizes S–XL and 13 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this swimsuit! I got so many compliments when I wore it to the pool a few days ago! A friend of mine even made me order one for her! I felt sexy and pretty all day long. It fits as expected. It looked small when I received it, but it turns out it is really stretchy fabric and fit me perfectly." —dickenslover

    Promising review: "I've never purchased a swimsuit off of Amazon before because I've always been nervous about their quality, fit and honestly, the legitimacy of the brands/sellers. I made sure to read all of the reviews/look at all of the customer photos and I was STILL hesitant to buy. I pulled the trigger thinking if I didn't like it then it was only ~$20. But wow, I am so glad I took a chance on this bikini. I love the thick and buttery soft material and to my surprise... it fits perfectly! I'll definitely be buying other patterns." —Marc Lopez

    Promising review: "OBSESSED with not only the suit, but also the fit and the quality.

So happy to have found this suit!" —Jennifer Cortes

It’s so fun to discuss Amazon abroad haha. I must have recommended it to like 25 girls, I swear!! You need this" —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98+ (available in sizes S–2X and 11 patterns).

    Promising review: "Just as pictured, it's beautiful! It's SNUG... If you order too large it will be baggy. Once you are in the water this is suit is perfect. There is a built in bra that is PERFECT for someone who is large chested. The built in bra doesn't fold up and the pads don't get flimsy. This suit makes your cleavage look good and feel secure. I used it for boarding and tubing on the lake. It was nice not worrying about losing my bikini top when you wipe out. WORTH EVERY PENNY!" —Destany Jaussaud

Finding swimsuits is always a hassle with my bust size (36D), but this keeps the girls covered. No cutting into my skin anywhere. I was so excited to find out that it has a lining, so it's a double layer. Definitely recommend!" —ldkeim

    Promising review: "This is probably the fifth time I've bought an Esther Williams swimsuit from ModCloth. I''m obsessed with these swimsuits — they always fit perfectly and are great quality. I love the festive prints they come in, and this one is no different. The gold dots are slightly sparkly, like glitter, and I love it!! The fit is my favorite part, though — if you're a big-breasted lady, y'all know how hard it is to find a supportive bathing suit that doesn't look like it came from the granny rack. This is sexy and sleek and cleavage-enhancing without looking pornographic. I love this suit and will probably buy 50 more (long as they keep makin' them)!" —Tasha

    Promising review: "Bought this bathing suit five days before going to the Dominican Republic. BEST LAST MINUTE BUY EVER!!! The straps are great if you have a smaller torso like myself because they are adjustable. The back is a sexy cut but your whole rear isn't out. MY BOYFRIEND LOVED IT. LOL!!
