When it comes to shopping for the perfect bathing suit, the options can feel overwhelming. With so many fits, designs, patterns, and prices to sort through, the whole process can be super time-consuming and mentally draining. Not to mention, it’s tough to asses the amount of coverage for the bottom, and how secure and supportive a bikini top is for your bust size without actually trying it on. Which is why Amazon is my go-to spot for swimsuits.
The retailer is a goldmine for summer essentials, including some very highly-rated swimsuits—and anything that doesn’t fit, you can easily return without hassle. From classic one-pieces and bikinis to tankinis and swim dresses that provide more coverage, there’s a style for every taste. In fact, you’ll find quite a few hidden gems from notable brands including La Blanca, Calvin Klein and Cupshe.
Amazon carries thousands upon thousands of swimsuits, so taking your shopping there doesn’t necessarily make it less overwhelming, volume-wise. But that’s where we come in. We’ve done most of the sleuthing for you, and spotted some of Amazon’s most coveted (and stylish) swimsuits, each with a 4.5 star rating or higher, plus glowing reviews, for you to add to your summer closet.
The best swimsuits to snag on Amazon, according to reviewers
It isn’t just playful ruffles that make this one-piece an Amazon fan-favorite. The ruching on the sides is the real MVP, according to reviewers. It provides the perfect amount of support and coverage. Plus, the built-in bra provides extra support for bigger busts, and keeps your boobs from spilling out as you hit the water.
What reviewers say: “I have two kids and just had twins, so I was looking for a one piece that hid some of the extra squishy parts,” one Amazon reviewer writes. “It definitely fits smaller and doesn’t have a lot of stretch, so I definitely would go up a size or two. But the up side to that is that it holds everything in. I’m heavier in the bum and thighs, and the full coverage bottom is a huge plus because my cheeks hang out of most suits.”
There are many reasons why this swimsuit has over 5,000 five-star reviews. But the main one has to do with the incredible fit. According to reviewers, this one has the same sort of Sisterhood of Traveling Pants pants magic, in bathing suit form. Word on the street is that it looks good on just about any body type, both small and big busts alike. Additionally, the mesh detailing adds a pop of style while the ruching outlines your curves.
What reviewers say: “I like one-piece suits because I like to play and have fun in the water, but I don’t want to look like a frumpy 39-year-old either,” one Amazon shopper explains. “This suit is incredibly flattering, snug enough to hold you in and still be very comfortable and easy to move in. My chest is well supported and sexy without feeling exposed or like my boobs are gonna escape. The clasped back means straps won’t fall down and no pressure on my neck. I can’t recommend this suit enough.”
And the award for The Swimsuit Most Likely to End up in My Closet This Year goes to the AXESEA Rash Guard One-Piece swimsuit. Though I’m much more of a bikini girl, this one is too functional to pass up. It’s perfect for anyone who likes to spend more than a couple hours in the water at a time, like myself. The fabric contains UPF 50+ protection and flatlock seams help prevent chafing.
What reviewers say: “This suit is awesome. It has a beautiful pattern that matches the picture online, comfortable fabric, and a flattering fit,” one shopper notes. “I am 5 ft 7 inches with an athletic and top-heavy build. I typically wear a size 10 but sometimes size up for fitted garments with sleeves because I have very broad shoulders. I bought a size 10 in this suit and it fits very well—it is tight as desired but still looks good and is comfortable to swim/paddle in.”
Not into a two-piece, but still want to show off your figure? Add this CUPSHE V-Neck swimsuit to your summer essentials list, ASAP. The plunging V-neckline and lace-up back allows you to serve some major skin, while still providing coverage from the sun. The fabric is also double-layered and ruches in the front to highlight your silhouette.
What reviewers say: “I LOVE this swimsuit! I’m a thicker girl, so I struggle finding swimsuits that flatter my body, are comfortable, and hold up well,” one five-star reviewer writes. “However, this swimsuit exceeded all expectations! It’s very comfortable and definitely hugs the right places, flattering my curves. Buy this!
This CharmLeaks String Bikini is definitely one way to make an impression sitting poolside. We personally love it for its many color options and gradient pattern, which allows the suit to really pop in the water. And Amazon reviewers love it for its adjustable top that holds larger bust sizes. The bottoms are pretty light on coverage, but not too cheeky that you’ll need a cover up (unless you want one).
What reviewers say: “This is such a flattering bikini! I have boobs (34DD) and a butt; this suit held things up, accentuated by curves but it wasn’t too tight,” one Amazon shopper raves. “I ordered a large to be safe in case the triangles were too small for my breasts. Everything fit true-to-size and the strings can be adjusted to be a little tighter or looser depending on how you want the fit.”
One of the biggest selling points of swim dresses is how comfortable they are. And this SHEKINI Swim Dress doesn’t disappoint. The ruching detailing really cinches you in and smooths out your silhouette from top to bottom. The dress also comes with a padded bra and swim shorts for extra coverage and support.
What reviewers say: “I love this swim dress. Fits amazing and I love that it has boy shorts underneath, so none of the constant readjusting like in a standard one piece,” one Amazon shopper writes. “With my Mary Jane water shoes I have a whole outfit I can look great in and get wet whenever the mood strikes without having to have an outfit change. Good quality materials and stitching.”
If you’re looking for versatility in your swimwear, this Yonique Three-Piece Tankini is going to be your go-to suit all summer long. It comes with shorts, a bikini top, and a swim tank to wear on top for the times when you want to be totally covered.
What reviewers say: One five-star reviewer writes,“I still like wearing two pieces but I still prefer to cover-up more often than not. I love wearing tanks and shorts so this swimming suit is EXACTLY what I needed. Shorts for the bottoms and a tank to throw on if I feel like covering up that also shows some detail in the back.”
Consider this the little black dress of swimsuits. It’s simple, yet perfectly customized for performance. Case in point: The suit has a padded bra, wide adjustable straps, and up to 50+ SPF protection to keep you from the sun’s harsh rays during hot pool days.
What reviewers say: “After looking at many expensive alternatives, I loved the simplicity of this one—and the price. [It’s] very flattering,” one shopper writes. “Also, [it’s] very functional. Can swim, boat, hang out with a wrap, all very comfortably.”
When it comes to flattering styles, this Cupshe Cutout Bathing Suit scores five out of five. And a lot of that has to do with the color block pattern and key-hole design that helps break up your silhouette. As a bonus, the suit has removable pads so you can get the perfect Goldilocks fit up top.
What reviewers say: “This bathing suit was actually way cuter than I expected,” an Amazon shopper notes. “The quality was great. I bought a medium and I am 5’6” and 145 pounds. It’s slightly cheeky but not enough to show the whole butt. I’m extremely impressed overall.”
If you’re not trying to cover up more, this American Trends Tankini is another great option to add to your swimwear collection. The ruffle top provides ample coverage while bottoms help to keep your tummy smooth.
What reviewers say: “Love this! I’m pretty insecure in swimsuits and this one makes me feel confident,” one shopper writes. “It’s flattering and hides what I don’t like others to see. It’s a little cheeky but I don’t mind. Just mentioning it in case you do. I got a large and I’m 5’6” and about 175.”
