Thanks to a reliable flock of detail-oriented reviewers, Amazon has become the answer for nearly all of our purchasing queries. From the things you’d expect (household appliances, groceries, books) to the thoroughly surprising finds (
fresh flowers, wedding rings!?, bridesmaid dresses), there seems to be nothing that can’t be supplied by the behemoth e-tailer. We spend a lot of office hours inspecting this do-everything site and carefully read through the endorsements of its browsing critics to surface the best goods available, but it was endorsements from two R29 readers that turned our attention towards the site's swimsuit offering.
Armed with these swimsuit tip offs, our recent journey down the Amazon rabbit hole was especially fruitful: the site is practically teeming with affordable swim styles that have racked up multiples stars and hundreds of accolades. From vintage-inspired bikinis to printed maillots; we saw so many cute bathing suits that we had to collect our finds for your browsing pleasure. So click on through to find your new favorite poolside style, and prepare yourself for your friends’ reactions when you tell them where you snagged it.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
