The 13 Best Bathing Suits from J.Crew, Starting at Just $40

·5 min read

Our old favorite mall brand J.Crew has been making quite the comeback lately (although to be fair, some of us never stopped loving the all-American classic). For those who may not know, J.Crew has long been a phenomenal place to pick up beautifully made, timeless bikinis and one-pieces, no matter your style or budget. And now that the brand has extended its size range for almost all its swimwear to go up to a size 3X or 24, and has also introduced Long Torso lengths, a wider range of body type can join in on the summertime fun, as well. Here, 13 of J.Crew’s absolute best bathing suits to add to cart ASAP.

1. Ruched Bandeau One-Piece Swimsuit

Universally Flattering

This ruched one-piece is one of the brand’s absolute best-sellers summer after summer, and for good reason. The simple fit is supremely flattering on every body type (it also comes with a halter strap if you’d prefer some extra support up top) and even comes in a Long Torso length. Plus, there are 11 colors and multiple prints—like leopard, pink gingham, tropical florals and seersucker stripes—to choose from.

Buy it ($98)

Available in sizes 0 to 24 and Long Torso

2. String Bikini Top and String Hipster Bikini Bottom

Classic String Style

You can never go wrong with a minimalist string bikini, and this one hits that Goldilocks point between showing ample skin without giving away the whole farm, so you’ll still feel secure as you avoid obvious tan lines.

Buy it ($45)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

Buy it ($40)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

3. Plunge V-Neck One-Piece Swimsuit

Best for Long Torsos

There are a bunch of long torso-accommodating one-pieces available at J.Crew, but this sexy plunge silhouette is perhaps the most flattering of all. Why? The deep V and higher-cut legs help break up your frame better than a high-neck or scoop ever could.

Buy it ($98)

Available in sizes 0 to 24 and Long Torso

4. Scoopneck Bikini Top and High-Waisted Bottom in Liberty Ros Floral

Best Floral Print

J.Crew has been partnering with Liberty for a few years now, crafting gorgeous floral dresses, blouses and swimwear in all our favorite dainty daisy prints. But there’s something about this white, blue and green pattern that feels nostalgic and feminine without looking too juvenile or retro, making it perhaps the best J.Crew x Liberty piece yet.

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

5. Square-Ring Bandeau Bikini Top and Square-Ring Bikini Bottom

Palm Springs-Inspired

You can’t help but smile looking at this ‘70s-esque bright yellow bikini. And for those who like the top or the bottom, but not together, there are plenty more pieces in this same vibrant hue (as well as the four other color options) to mix and match with at will.

6. Bow-Tie One-Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit

Best for Short Torsos

Truth be told, this suit will look lovely on everyone, but the fact that the shoulder strap is fully adjustable means you can tighten it as much as needed to make it fit your shorter frame. As an added bonus, one-shoulder suits are great for creating the illusion of a longer, leaner silhouette.

Buy it ($110)

Available in sizes 0 to 16

7. Underwire One-Piece Swimsuit in Leopard Print

Best Timeless Print

J.Crew comes out with a new range of beautiful florals and nautical stripes every summer, but the one print that barely changes year from year is leopard. These classic spots work best in an equally classic silhouette, which is why we highly suggest adding this subtly sexy one-piece to your cart ASAP to enjoy for the next five or even ten summers.

Buy it ($118)

Available in sizes 0 to 16

8. 1993 Underwire Top and 1989 High-Leg Bikini Bottom

Best Throwback Style

Revisit two of the brand’s best-selling and best-loved styles from the ‘80s and ‘90s, which just so happen to look fabulous paired together, too.

Buy it ($62)

Available in sizes 32A to 36D

Buy it ($45)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

9. Underwire Bikini Top with Criss-Cross Straps and High-Cut Tie-Waist Bikini Bottom

Best Retro Style

For those who prefer to look even further back, consider this adorable combination. The adjustable tie on these high-waisted bottoms help camouflage any lumps or bumps at your tummy.

Buy it ($70)

Available in sizes 32A to 36D

Buy it ($55; $35)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

10. Tie-Shoulder One-Piece in Cabana Stripe

Best Nautical Stripes

The adjustable ties on this bold blue-and-white stunner make it another good option for those with a short torso, but the vertical stripes will help just about any body type look taller. Plus, it’ll look adorable worn under white jeans for a beach-to-brunch (or vice versa) ensemble.

Buy it ($128)

Available in sizes 0 to 16

11. U-Front Bandeau Bikini Top in Best Buds and High-Waisted Bikini Bottom

Most of the brand’s biggest hits are bright solid hues, but we’d be remiss to skip out on this adorable-patterned combo. P.S. The top also comes with a removable halter strap for added support if you prefer.

Buy it ($75)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

Buy it ($60)

Available in sizes XXS to 3X

12. SZ Blockprints x J.Crew long-sleeve rash guard in Nila block print

Best for Active Beachgoers

There are handful of rash guards available at J.Crew, but the unique floral block print of this pink version really stood out from the pack. And, yes, there’s a matching bikini and matching one-piece to go with it.

Buy it ($138)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

13. Halter Wrap Swim Dress

Best Full-Coverage Style

If you prefer something with more coverage around your bum and hips, this fun halter dress should do the trick. It comes in four colors and the faux wrap (it is adjustable to a degree) helps cinch in your waist to create an hourglass figure.

Buy it ($128)

Available in sizes 0 to 24 and Long Torso
