1. A simple halter neck one-piece
Sizes: L to 3X
Amazon is home to name brand swimwear like Cupshe, which ranked high on our list of the best swimsuits to buy on Amazon. This one-piece from Cupshe is available in sizes L to 3X, and comes with a halter neckline and shirring at the waist and bodice. Reviewers noted that the halter strap was supportive, and several people recommended sizing up if you have a larger bust size.
2. A well-reviewed fishnet two-piece
Sizes: L to 3XL
If bold colors are your favored beach look, this bikini with fishnet paneling is a statement piece that also offers stellar support and coverage, even with the mesh panels. The bikini is available in sizes L to 3XL, and features a scoop neckline with a high-waisted bottom. Reviewers loved the look and feel of this bathing suit, though several people seemed to have problems with the dark red version, specifically.
3. A supportive two-piece in 21 different colors
Sizes: 12 Plus to 24 Plus
If you have a large bust, having support built into your top is essential, especially if you plan on swimming while you're away at the beach. This swimsuit from Yonique offers a cross-strap design for extra support, and also comes with control panels in the bottoms for extra security. Reviewers were impressed with its level of support, and many people mentioned that it was extremely comfortable.
4. A one piece with a cutout panel
Sizes: L to 24 Plus
If you're a fan of cutouts, this swimsuit with a triangular torso cutout might be for you. The swimsuit, which currently has 1,400 five-star reviews, comes in 24 different colors and is available in sizes L to 24 (see the sizing guide for the full range). Several reviewers recommended it for people with larger bust sizes, as the cinching tie at the front made it easy to adjust for your preferred fit.
5. A full-coverage tankini you could easily wear as a bodysuit
Sizes: Xs to 24 Plus
Sometimes swimwear needs to get you from the house to the pool to the boardwalk and back. This low-back, high-neck swim top is a great option if you like wearing your swimsuit with shorts or a loose cover-up. The suit comes in over 40 styles and is available in sizes XS to 24.
6. A pair of high-waisted board shorts
Sizes: 0X to 3X
If your time at the beach is spent on a board of some sort, be it boogie or surf, consider picking up a pair of these board shorts. The Attraco board shorts are designed not to ride up, and offer freedom of movement along with shaping. Reviewers loved how these swim shorts made them feel, and several people recommended not sizing up, since the excess material could cause the shorts to fit looser than intended.
7. A bikini with strap detailing
Sizes: XL to 4XL
If you like supportive tops but still want to sport a strappy bikini look, this high-waisted option from Yomoko with 16 different styles is available in sizes M to 4X, and is a reviewer favorite for its full-coverage, comfy fit and flattering details, including the crisscross ties on the top and thin straps.
8. A tankini with great reviews
Sizes: 12 Plus to 24 Plus
This swimsuit from Yonique is a classic black full-body coverage suit. It comes with boy short bottoms and a tankini top with a soft-padded bra and adjustable shoulder straps. The shorts feature ties on the side, which you can adjust to get your desired look and fit, and the tankini top has enough coverage to be great for boogie boarding, surfing, and beyond.
9. A halter-neck with more support
Sizes: 12 Plus to 24 Plus
If you want a halter-neck look, but want to avoid the possible slippage of a cutout or string tie, this halter-neck swimsuit with over 4,000 five-star reviews might be what you're looking for. Available in sizes 12 to 24, this bathing suit comes with a structured, sheer-paneled halter top and ruching around the waist. Reviewers recommend ordering in your normal size, as those who sized up found the suit too big.
10. A drape-front two-piece
Sizes: S to 3XL
If you prefer a flowy look, this soft, stretchy two-piece with a flowing top and high-waisted bottom might do the trick. Available in 24 colors and prints—including neons, florals, and tie-dye—this suit comes in sizes S to 3X. Of its over 17,000 five-star reviews, many praised its comfortable fit and versatility, noting that the overall fit meant they might go back again and buy another color or pattern.
