When you're in need of a swimsuit, J.Crew is always one of your best bets. There's a wide selection of styles, sizes, and silhouettes in classic solids and prints alike, and you can usually score a deal with one of the retailer's generous discount codes. Plus, since they tend to skew classic rather than super-duper trendy, you'll find they last years—especially if you're the type who mostly breaks out your bathing suits for poolside lounging.
More active beachgoers will also find an impressive array of full-coverage pieces, from surf-ready rash guards to cute, coordinating board shorts. But how to know what style to choose without enduring the harsh realities of trying on bikinis in a fitting room in the winter? J.Crew's review system has you covered. We scoured the site for the top-reviewed items—tops, bottoms, one-pieces, and specialty-sized suits for DD cups and those with long torsos.
Below, see 13 swimsuits J.Crew customers love (and feel extra confident knowing the retailer offers free shipping and free returns on all swim!).
