The Best Swimsuits for Every Body, Period.

Whether you're headed on a sunny vacation or simply gearing up for the return of summer, odds are that your warm-weather wardrobe could use some updating. And what better place to start than with a brand new swimsuit?

With so many bathing suit styles on the market, it can be a bit overwhelming to pick just one. You'll find one-pieces with plunging necklines and halter tops, high necklines or racerback straps, retro cut-outs, and even fun details like ruffles and peplum hems. If you're a fan of two-piece swimsuits or bikinis, you can mix and match different tops and bottoms, like a high-waisted bikini bottom with a bandeau-style top, or a high-cut bottom with a bandeau top.

To help you sift through all the options and find the right bathing suit for you, we've compiled a list of the best swimsuits for every preference. You'll find top-rated styles with various cuts, brands, and price points, some of which even come recommended by Shape editors.

But if there's one thing to keep in mind, it's that you can wear any style of swimsuit you damn well want. It's 2022, and gone are the days of sticking to conventionally "flattering" swimsuits that are meant to slim, pull in, or hide certain areas of your body. Instead, swimwear (and society, thank goodness) has evolved to be more about embracing what makes your body unique and emphasizing what makes you feel comfortable and confident. So, no matter your body type, go forth and rock any one of these styles.

I've had this suit for 6 months and worn it in the ocean, the pool, and the hot tub, and it hasn't faded or worn even after several trips through the washer."
