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!).
This bikini top must be magic because it seems to flatter just about everyone who buys it. Reviewers who wear C- and D-cups praise the fact that there’s "no awkward side boob/under boob/cleavage" (score!) while less busty girls say it accentuates the chest without looking like a push-up bra.
Swimsuit shopping is tricky, so when reviewer after reviewer calls one "perfect," we’re bound to listen up. And the best part about this cool asymmetrical style? It seems to flatter a wide range of body types.
Fans of this string bikini are especially impressed by it’s "so soft" fabric and removable pads. "Every year the only decision is...what color?" writes one. And with nine to choose from, we can understand the dilemma.
One 26-year-old reviewer really nails the appeal of these well-cut, high-quality bottoms when she says, "These are a very happy middle-ground between the itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny swimsuits marketed to girls a few years younger than me and the geriatric suits designers seem to think come with the next stages of life."
