I love my Boden suits, and I hate wearing a swim suit lol. They’re a little pricey but there’s usually a 20% off and free shipping code floating around.

I’ve gotten swimsuits from Amazon and Shein, and all of them have turned out nicely!  I also purchased a more expensive suit from Everything But Water, but honestly really like the Shein suits just as much!

I buy mine from aerie. I just checked and it looks like they’re having a sale. You can mix and match sizes and styles, so you can buy the bottom in a larger size in a style with more coverage.

mrsclaymls :  I was just going to mention Aerie as well. They are having a 50% off sale right now with free shipping and returns. I’ve purchased a couple of cute basic mix and match bikinis from there. And I actually just received one I ordered from Lulus and it’s adorable. Very impressed as I have been with almost everything I’ve ordered from Lulus, which surprised me given the price point.

I use 6pm and Bluefly to find the brand I’m particular about for cheaper (Vitamin A) but they’re definitely more than $30 for the most part. If you know a brand you like I would def check out 6pm for past season sales! Venus would be my other recommendation for affordable swimwear.

I have a very small chest with a decent amount of butt relatively speaking, so I always end up ordering a larger size in bikini bottoms versus tops. In my experience, the size of the bottom is most important for avoiding that squished, overflowing butt look.

That said, it has also been my experience that fuller coverage bottoms are more likely to give me the squished butt when they are even slightly too small, whereas higher, cheekier cuts seem to be more forgiving in the size matching.  For example, this type of cut almost always squishes my butt unless it’s exactly the right size, so it’s pretty unflattering even though it’s a decent amount of coverage. So unfortunately it did take some trial and error to figure out what actually looked most flattering on me. I’ve since gotten over my fear of cellulite and embraced that my butt does look better in cheekier cuts. 

So while you may by inclined to go fuller coverage if you are self-concious about your lower butt, if you have trouble with sizing and avoiding gapping versus squished butt, do consider that a higher cut may actually be more flattering.

I’ve done the trial and error with Victoria’s Secret suits before, and it was easy enough to return the ones that didn’t work.

I like Lands’ End swimsuits, but most of them are on the more modest side.

I bought from Cupshe when we went to Mexico. I have not worn a bathing suit in public for years and I was really nervous about it but the tankini i got from cupshe was amazing. It covered everything unwanted to have covered and my boyfriend actually liked it as well.  And it was cheap.
