This suit is specifically designed for C, D and DD cup sizes to give your gals ample support without constricting your movement or smashing them to smitherines. That plus the ruched bodice will give you an hourglass shape with an old-Hollywood vibe we absolutely adore.
You can never go wrong with a little black swimsuit, and this one is especially fabulous because it incorporates two of summer ’22 top swim trends. First the one-shoulder silhouette, which helps elongate your torso to give you a longer, leaner frame. And second, the material incorporates just a hint of glitter to make it feel extra glamorous. (The effect is especially fabulous from the water.)
Farm Rio has become perhaps the must-have brand of the summer thanks to its vibrant, cheerful prints and dedication to sustainability. This chic one-piece has the brand’s signature tropical vibes, but won’t feel dated next year, and those contrasting side panels work to create a cinched in waist without any pinching or constricting seams.
Get two swimsuits for the price of one, plus 40 percent off, with this adjustable bikini set. The reverse side is a gorgeous peachy pink hue that looks good on every skin tone, and the side ties on the bottom and front and neck ties on the top give you much more wiggle room to find that perfect fit.
Cutouts are another big trend for 2022, but all too often they hit in odd places that expose more than we’d perhaps like to show off. This suit, on the other hand, has an incredibly flattering fit that still feels super trendy without overexaggerated cuts on the sides or stomach. The neckline can also be worn multiple ways, including as a bandeau, so you can switch things up as you please.
Striped swimwear will always be a win in our opinion, but we love the asymmetrical combination of stripes on this sexy two-piece. And the pastel shades still lend a nautical vibe without being too on the nose. For those who want a bit more coverage on the bottom or less coverage up top, there are multiple styles available in this same colorful pattern, although not all of them are on sale.
As mentioned earlier, one-shoulder silhouettes are great for elongating your frame to make you appear taller and leaner, and that’s doubly true when you add in cascading florals to help emphasize the effect. This suit can also downplay your hips by thanks to the darker green hue at the bottom and the attention-grabbing yellow at the top. Best of all, it’s cheerful, cute and will remain in style for years to come.
Full coverage suits don’t have to be dowdy, and this chic Artesands number is proof. It was specifically designed for those with DD-cups or larger to provide lots of support without sacrificing style, and we think it absolutely nailed it. A subtle crisscross detail under the bust helps create a more defined waist, and underneath that flirty skirt is a full coverage bottom that will smooth your hips and bum for a super-sleek silhouette.
V-front bikini bottoms have been a trend for at least two years now, but they’re definitely not going away any time soon thanks to their ultra-flattering, waist-cinching effect. This high-waist version also has a high-cut leg that will give you mile-long stems and a bit of a booty boost as well. Add to that a chic, ‘70s-inspired print and you’ve got yourself a total no-brainer.
This classic black halter works particularly well for those with bigger busts thanks to the wide underbust band and larger triangle cups. The neck and back are also fully adjustable so you can tie them in whatever way is most comfortable for you. Pair it with your go-to black bikini bottoms, or have some fun and switch things up with a different bright color or even a print.
Worried about your white suit suddenly turning sheer? This River Island design incorporates a full lining and textured materials to ensure you won’t show off more than you bargain for, no matter how long you spend lounging in the pool. And the minimalist design is so elegant, you’re sure to garner tons of complements every time you wear it.
