Best Swimsuits from Target at a Glance

Best One-Piece

1. Shade & Shore Flounce Swimsuit

Shade & Shore

We came for the gorgeous ruffled neckline, but stayed for the surprisingly sexy back. The crisscrossed straps of this suit are fully adjustable to ensure the cups hit you in just the right spot and offer a fun balance the the full-coverage bottom. Speaking of cups, these ones come with removable padding and a sturdy seam under the bust offers support without an uncomfortable underwire.

Size range: XS to XL

Most Flattering

2. Kona Sol Tummy-Control Swimsuit

Kona Sol

This one-shoulder stunner features ruching along the bodice to better camouflage any lumps or bumps, as well as a tummy-control panel at the front for extra support and smoothing. The single strap is also adjustable, and sizes 14 though 24 come with an additional strap you can hook over the other shoulder should you find yourself wanting more support up top.

Size range: XS to XL and 14 to 24

The ribbed material of this classic bikini makes it look far more expensive than its affordable price tag and comes in Barbie pink, sky blue, lime green and sunny orange, as well as black and white. It’s also made from recycled polyester for an eco-friendly twist. You can also pick up an adjustable triangle top, string-tie bottom and ribbed tankini top in the same fabric and colors for even more cute style combinations.

4. Wild Fable Racerback Swimsuit

Wild Fable

Have yourself a Baywatch moment in this sporty-yet-sexy one-piece swimsuit. The back has a full-coverage bottom and racerback top with a cutout in the middle for a fun surprise when you turn around. There are removable cups in the bust and both the red and sky blue color options have white piping around the neck, arms and legs for a vintage vibe we can’t get enough of.

Size range: XXS to XL

Best Swim Skirt

5. Kona Sol Skirtini Bottom

Kona Sol

This simple-but-chic skirt has the same sporty, fun vibes as your favorite summer tennis skirt and offers plenty of coverage with built-in full-coverage briefs underneath. There are also multiple matching tops to choose from. One reviewer writes, "I have a few of these and this one is comfy and doesn't fall down when playing in the waves. Flattering, wore it around town and at the beach."

Size range: XS to XL

Best Black Bikini

6. Shade & Shore Triangle Top and High-Waist Bottom

Shade & Shore

You can never go wrong with a little black bikini, but that sentiment is doubly true when the bikini in question manages to be both sexy and flattering all at once. This Shade & Shore style is proof thanks to a high-waist cut and strategically placed V-shape mesh panels that create the illusion of an itty-bitty waist. The top also comes in a D/DD cup size with slightly thicker straps and a wider bottom band for extra support where it’s needed most.

Size range: XS to XL, also D/DD

Size range: XS to XL
