Most Flattering Swimsuits That Are Also Affordable

My quest for the most flattering and affordable swimsuits is ongoing but today I’m sharing a bunch that are not only super cute and flattering but won’t break the bank.

I’m super picky when it comes to swimsuits. While my bare it all days are well behind me I still want to feel cute and even a little sexy in a swimsuit. However, I also insist on full booty coverage and a slimming style. Bonus points for fully adjustable styles.

Below, I’m sharing five of the most flattering swimsuits from Target, Aerie, and Amazon. And at the bottom of this post, you’ll find over 20 flattering and affordable swimsuits. I’m also sharing lots of cute coverups so be sure to check those out as well!


For reference, I’m 5’7″ with a long torso and long legs. Because of my long torso, I typically size up in swimsuits or look for tall sizes, which are available at Target, Aerie, and J. Crew

I typically wear a 27 in jeans or a size 4. My bra size is a 34D, and I typically wear a size medium. If I own the item I will always list my size and any recommendations I have for sizing up or down for quick reference. (TTS= true to size!)

I also frequently share in-depth try ons over on Instagram Stories where I always share sizing info!

I was so excited to find that Aerie now also offers tall size swimsuits. This is ideal for those of us with long torsos. I’ve always had a hard time finding one-piece swimsuits that didn’t pull too tight because of my long torso and the taller sizes definitely solve this problem!

I’m also so impressed with Aerie’s quality and variety. There are so many cute styles different from anything other retailers. And because Aerie is known for their body inclusivity, there is truly something for everyone. 

Another thing that I love about Aerie swimsuits is how adjustable they are. Both of these one-pieces are fully adjustable in both in the straps as well as how snug the suit wraps around the body. This makes them incredibly supportive. They both also offer good booty coverage.

Target is another go-to for me when I’m shopping for swimsuits. They do offer some long torso options but the ones I’m sharing here are just regular sizing and they fit well! The ruching and flounce are so flattering and both come with detachable shoulder straps. I felt pretty secure without them if I was just laying around the pool or beach. But they would come in handy if I were chasing around toddlers!

Amazon is a gold mine for flattering swimsuits and exceptional quality at a great price point. I’ve found CUPSHETempt Me, COCOSHIP, and HILOR to be very reliable for quality and affordability!

I will be sharing more Amazon swimsuits in the future but this high-waisted bikini is super flattering, offers great coverage while not being overly modest and has the cutest girlie details. The high-waisted style hits at the slimmest part of our stomach and offers full booty coverage. And the cute off the shoulder style is so fun and also flatters the bust. This comes in a bunch of print options and I also linked some mom/daughter sets below!
