Summer is almost here, and whether you have a ton of pool days blocked off on your calendar or have a big beach trip on the books, you’re going to need some cute swimwear to wear in the sun. Bikinis, low-cut necklines, cutouts and high-cut legs aren’t for everyone, so if you prefer a little more coverage with your swimwear, we’ve found the 13 best full coverage bathing suits to wear by the water this summer.

The 14 Best High Waisted Bikinis to Own This Summer


1. Summersalt The Tie Waist Backflip

Why We Love It: Cinchable tie-waist, built-in cups

How gorgeous is this pattern? The pastel blue is a beautiful choice to show off your summer tan and the low-cut back is a great for avoiding those strap tan lines, but the V in the front is high-cut enough that you won’t feel like you’re spilling out.

Size range: 2 to 22

Andie Swim

2. Andie Swim The Amalfi

Why We Love It: Glossy nylon material, mid-rise cut legs

A simple silhouette is a great go-to option for a sunny pool day, and this suit’s mid-cut legs are a fabulous option if you don’t want your hipbones exposed. This one has adjustable straps and is available in five colors.

Size range: XS to 3X


3. J.crew Ruched Bandeau One-piece

Why We Love It: Long torso option, straight across neckline

Ruched sides are super flattering on every body type and the nautical blue and white stripes are too cute to pass up.

Size range: 0 to 24


4. Lulus Stunner Cutout One-piece

Why We Love It: Low-cut legs, one shoulder cut-out

The shoulder cut-out detail is a sexy way to add a little bit of flair to this basic silhouette without showing off too much skin. Plus, we love this gorgeous, vibrant red color for summer.

Size range: XS to XL


5. Dreamsuit By Miracle Brands High Neck Tankini Top

Why We Love It: Asymmetrical cut, high neckline

Another fuller coverage suit that doesn’t sacrifice on style, this one has an asymmetrical slit side that can be tied up for a little added flair or left loose.

Size range: 8 to 16


6. Cupshe Wrap Tie Bathing Suit

Why We Love It: Fast delivery with Amazon Prime, color blocking

Available in 17 different colorways, this adorable wrap swimsuit is one of our favorite picks for this summer. It has removable padding and low-cut legs.

Size range: XS to XXL


7. Gigi C Missy Surf Jacket Bikini

Why We Love It: Zip-front closure, black and white color blocking

No, not all two-piece suits are skimpy;. Keep your body protected from the sun and sand while surfing with this sport number. We especially love that the matching bottoms have a zipper closure to keep you secure while you move around.

Size range: XS to L


8. Lululemon Zip-back Paddle Suit

Why We Love It: UV protective fabric, easy-pull zipper strap

The compressive fabric keeps your body sculpted while the high-cut neck keeps your chest covered. All in all a super comfortable option for beach-side activities like surfing, paddle boarding and more.

Size range: 2 to 14


9. Everlane The V-neck One-piece

Why We Love It: Built-in shelf bra, adjustable strap, quick-drying fabric

The gorgeous V-neckline has minimal topstitching for a near seamless looking construction, and the wide straps are comfortable and adjustable.

Size range: XXS to XXL


10. Crew Ruched One-shoulder One-piece

Why We Love It: Long torso option, ruched sides

This bestselling silhouette is a great option to mix things up from the standard double strapped one-piece. It’s available in eight stunning colors, and has a full coverage bottom.

Size range: 0 to 24


11. Summersalt Oasis Bikini

Why We Love It: Adjustable straps, adjustable tie waist

Bikinis can be full coverage, too. The high-waist bottoms cover your whole bum and the supportive top is great for larger chests.

Size range: 2 to 12


12. Kulani Kinis X Lulus On The Beachy Side One-piece Swimsuit

Why We Love It: Underwire chest construction, floral print

While the bottoms are a little on the cheeky side, this one-piece has adjustable straps and would look stunning under a sheer or crochet cover up.

Size range: XS to XL


13. Cupshe High Waisted Ruffle Swimsuit Set

Why We Love It: Ruffled mid length top, high waisted bottoms

The midline cut of this ruffled top paired with the high-waist bottoms makes it feel like it’s basically a one-piece. The top is nice and stretchy, while the bottoms offer snug support to keep you feeling sculpted.

Size range: XS to XXL
