Try one (or more) of these super flattering swimsuits from Amazon this summer.
Buying a swimsuit in-store probably doesn’t top your list of fun things to do. The unflattering dressing room lights, funhouse mirrors, and sales associates asking if “everything’s ok” while you stare into the mirror and try to remember when you last shaved above your knee are all reasons why it’s best to shop for such things at home. So it’s a good thing Amazon has tons of super cute and women’s bathing suits at incredible prices that you can order and try on in the comfort of your own home. And whether you’re on the hunt for a chic one-piece swimsuit, a high-waisted bathing suit (aka, a fresh take on the tankini), or trendy swimwear that comes in plus-sizes, we — and Amazon — have your back.
So, we rounded up some cute bathing suits that are highly-rated, sexy, and flattering for all. Bonus? Nearly all of them are under $30, so feel free to buy more than one. Grab one (or a few) of these super-flattering swimsuits in modern cuts, then consider stashing your bathing suit cover ’cause you’ll be feeling cute and confident by the water this summer. Needless to say, these suits may be mom-approved, but they’re not your mother’s swimwear.
We’re going to be using the F word a lot today and this suit embodies it. What’s more flattering than 1) black 2) ruching 3) a high neck? Nothing, that’s what. This suit has a nearly perfect 5-star rating on Amazon for a reason — it’s sexy as hell. Better yet, it comes in a wide variety of sizes from extra small to plus size 22. And if black isn’t really your thing, this bathing suit also comes in a whopping 41 other colors and pattern schemes.
Reviewers can’t get enough of this sexy-but-covered-up suit. “It’s conservative yet I feel beautiful in it,” one reviewer says. “I was looking for something that I could wear to the water park or beach with the kids but I didn’t want a typical plain bathing suit.” Adds another, “I HAVE NEVER found a suit that provides so much coverage and is still perfectly flattering. The breast pads are perfectly placed. The mesh between shows the right amount of cleavage to spice it up a bit and the rouching around the stomach hides anything you might not want others to see and provides a little hug to your tummy, smoothing everything out.”
High-waisted bottoms with drapey tops are the new tankinis, and this two-piece suit gets rave reviews because it couldn’t be hotter if it tried. The flouncy ruffled crop top is insanely complimentary and the cut-out bottoms are super stylish. If you’re into bikinis but still want to cover up a little bit, this is your ticket. And in sizes extra small to 20 plus — and 40 different color combos — it’s the perfect bikini for all. (And at this price, you might want to buy them all, too.)
“I love this suit!” one buyer reports. “I ordered this in a 2XL to accommodate my hips (I‘m 5’3 and 215 lbs). This suit was so comfortable and flattering.” Says another, “Looks and feels like a boutique suit. Stitching and fabric are great! Seriously can’t get over the quality. Might buy more colors for next season!”
Proof that you don’t need to spend over $30 on a designer-looking swimsuit! Don’t be fooled by this adorably lacy one-piece’s extremely reasonable price tag (it looks like something you’d get at Anthropology, doesn’t it?). Reviewers are obsessed with the flattering fit, and its quality and support make it look and feel much more expensive than it is. It comes in nine colors and patterns and a few different styles, including some with side cutouts.
Says one reviewer, “Mommies! Older women! This is the suit for you! Sexy, but not trashy. Very well made, thick material, and adjustable breast support. It’s beautiful all around, comfortable, and I feel great wearing it!” Says another, “To say I love this suit is an understatement! I’ve had two kids so I like to be covered but fun and be able to hide my momma pooch. :)”
This saucy little number cleverly allows you to wear two pieces without showing too much skin, if that’s what you’re going for. A flirty ruffle cascades low to show only a sliver of skin, and high-waist bottoms are both flattering and super on-trend. You can pick from 13 different top/bottom combos in sizes 0-26, and at prices starting at $15, you can totally snag a few!
“This was my first time ever wearing a two-piece swimming suit,” one buyer shares. “I was nervous at first, but I felt really comfortable in this swimming suit, it showed just enough. I got several compliments on it. No one believed I got it on Amazon.”
This peek-a-boo one-piece comes reveals just enough tummy, and with a high back and tie at the bust, it provides plenty of support. Available in 14 colors and patterns from classic olive to an American flag motif (Fourth of July, perhaps?), you’ll certainly have your pick. Reviews don’t lie and this one’s a crowd favorite, so snap it up before the temperatures turn scorching.
“Was looking for a ‘mom suit’ that was appropriate for a family cruise,” one reviewer explains. “I love monokinis because they are sexy without showing too much skin for us mommies /aunties /and those who wish to be a little modest.”
This bathing suit ties in the back, has sleek side cutouts, and comes in the cutest patterns! (Nine, to be exact.) It’s a super clever one-piece that gives off a two-piece vibe, thanks to different colors and prints on each half — and if you really want to go wild, grab one that has patterns on top and bottom! The finishing touch is the back zipper, which has a bauble-like pull that looks as pretty as a piece of jewelry.
“I was skeptical purchasing a bathing suit without trying it on but I was really impressed,” one reviewer says. “It fits better than all the mall brands … it did not loosen once wet. It was so affordable and the pattern was cute.”
Okay, I’m just going to keep this very real and say that after having a spring baby, a ruched black one-piece like this with tummy control was my savior. I will also admit that nearly 10 years later, it’s still a fave in my swimsuit wardrobe. With 13 styles to choose from, you can grab one in a fun color or print like this hot pink suit, or opt for a neutral color like “Coffee” or “Steel Blue.” And for this price, why not buy two so you can pick according to your mood that day?
“I’m 10 months postpartum and still have my child-bearing hips fully intact!” one customer says. “My main concern was finding a swimsuit that gave my sagging boobs the support they need without showing too much cleavage. I wanted to be a little modest! I loved the tummy control and the thick straps to give me extra support.”
If vintage suits are your jam, this ridiculously cute polka-dot bikini needs to be part of your wardrobe immediately. Another tankini alternative, this Amazon bestseller comes in an incredible 37 color combos including classic pinup looks, tropical flowers, cheetahs, and of course, solid black. It gets rave reviews for being incredibly flattering for sizes small through 5X; just note that the available sizes vary depending on style.
“Perfict fit!” a reviewer reports. “Size chart is very accurate. Quality is great. I’m a bit top heavy, and the top fit great and had enough support.” Adds another, “This suit right here is an OMG moment. I did not want to take it off and wanted to just parade all around the house in it!”
*Roar.* This animal-print one-piece has it all going on from its fun pattern to its retro silhouette. In fact, if you love throwback looks, get it in fire engine red to rival the Bay Watch lifeguards of the 90s. You can also opt for 80s neon green or Barbie hot pink, just to name a few of the 30 shades and patterns to choose from. Ranging from sizes small to XX-large, this bathing suit is wonderfully size-inclusive, too.
“This suit is exactly as pictured,” one reviewer reports. “Also, I barely have any boobs and this suit gives the right amount of lift for my girls. I was looking everywhere for a classic black one piece and almost paid 60 bucks! The material on this suit is just wonderful. Exactly what I wanted. Thank you!”
