If florals aren’t for you, this is a good way to do a print. The lower-cut leg means it won’t ride up. Sizes include XL.

This sporty bikini is designed for movement. The lime piping lies smooth on the skin, and the color pops.

Win It! L.L.Bean

Sometimes a classic tank is exactly what you need, but why not a bold hue instead of basic black? Up to size 18.

Stripes done right: shades of the same color (subtle) in narrow lines (flattering). Comes in sizes up to 16.
