The string bikini will probably never go out of style, but thank goodness so many other super-adorable trends have popped up this season. From ruffles to mesh, here are our favorite waterproof trends. Which one best suits your bod? Find out.
Trend: Sporty Designs
Best for: Big boobs
Great news for larger-chested women: Athletic styles are totally in, which means there’s finally a surplus of designs that are meant to keep your ladies in place. Praise the swimwear gods.
Trend: Mesh Cutouts
Best for: Showing skin without actually showing it
Maybe you wouldn’t have worn last summer’s cutout trend, but we bet you’ll like the refined new version.
Get the look: Anne Cole ($120)
Trend: High-Waisted Bikini
Best for: Stretch marks, a muffin top or a big booty
If you’re self-conscious about stretch marks, a high waist is perfect for the whole out-of-sight-out-of-mind reason, but also because sun exposure actually makes them more visible. You’ll be all sorts of Old Hollywood glam and feel confident AF.
Get the look: Solid & Striped ($176)
Trend: Ruffled Off-the-Shoulder
Best for: A pear-shaped body or arms you’re not totally confident about
Balance out your booty and thighs by drawing attention to your clavicle and shoulders. Plus, the ruffles do the same thing for your arms. Genius and so chic.

Trend: High-Cut One-Piece
Best for: Long legs or small boobs
If you’ve got it, flaunt it. And by “it,” we mean length. But if you don’t got it—and this time, “it” means boobs—no problem. Rocking this style will give you all the Baywatch vibes.
Get the look: Kulani Kinis ($63)
Best for: Smoothing and shaping
You know that scuba suit material? Well, when used in swimwear, it shapes and smooths like no other. And check out how cute and sporty you’ll look.
