Swimsuit season has arrived, but if you’re looking at your swimwear collection from years past and just not feeling the styles anymore, you’re not alone. Trends change — personal style changes! If you want to feel amazing and stylish in your one-piece bathing suits and bikini sets this summer, we’re here to help!

While we’ve rounded up the best bathing suits for athletic body types, for postpartum life, for plus-size fashion and with full-coverage bottoms, to name a few, but right now we’re focusing on the top bathing suit trends for 2022. Check out the below!


1. Our absolute favorite: Cutout bathing suits of all different designs are in right now, and the side cutout on this SweatyRocks swimsuit proves why. We love the color-blocking!

2. We also love:Why limit yourself to just one cutout when there are two? This Hxroolrp swimming suit from Walmart is so flattering!

3. We Can’t Forget: This ioiom one-piece has both the cutout under the bust and in the center of the chest, creating an eye-catching look!

Low and open backs

4. Our absolute favorite: It’s easy to see why this COCOSHIP bathing suit has so many reviews. It’s retro-inspired and looks great on everyone!

5. We also love: This SHEKINI swimsuit is red hot and ready to turn heads. The high-cut legs look super trendy, too!

6. We Can’t Forget: This high-neck Kona Sol swimsuit from Target nails both the cutout trend and the open back look!


7. Our absolute favorite: This leopard print Byinns swimsuit‘s lightly ruffled short sleeves are just the dash of elegance your swim collection’s been waiting for!

8. We also love: We love our puff-sleeved clothes, so why not try this puff-sleeve Exlura swimsuit instead?

Sets of three pieces

9. Our absolute favorite: Two-piece sets? Great. Three-piece sets? Even better! This SOLY HUX bikini comes with a matching skirt you can rock on the beach or boardwalk!

10. We also love: This MakeMeChic set is another option, but with a strapless top and a longer skirt. We love florals!

11. We Can’t Forget: This plus-size Romwe bikini set actually comes with a dress you can wear on top!

Triangle String Bikinis

12. Our absolute favorite: The classic triangle bikini is back, and this simple Suvimuga set is the gold standard!

13. We also love: This MakeMeChic bikini set has the string bikini look but with stretchy, smocked fabric. The blue and the white versions are Grecian inspired!

14. We Can’t Forget: You can never go wrong with a tie-dye print like on this SUUKSESS bikini!


15. Our absolute favorite: We’ve been seeing zip-up swimsuits pop up a lot this year. We’ve been thinking about this patterned Hermoza swimsuit non-stop since we discovered it!

16. We also love: This All in Motion rash guard is the perfect one-piece from Target for water sports (or for avoiding sunburn)!

17. We Can’t Forget: We adore the contrasting zipper color on this CHYRII one-piece. There are many other great options, too!
