Black bikinis never go out of style for a reason: they are slimming, chic and go with everything. If you’re not a flowers and polka dots kind of beach-goer, opt for one of these flattering, eternally en vogue styles. Plus, we hand picked them by category, ie. best bandeau or best for big butt.

1. Best Bandeau Top Bikini:

In the bandeau top category, this Tommy Bahama Pearl Twist Bandeau bikini top ($68) and Twist Front Hipster bottom ($54) is a big winner. The wiring on the top keeps it in place, and the twist detail makes it pop.

2. Best Teeny String Bikini:

The teeny weenie string bikini will never go out of style; get one that will last forever, like this J.Crew Solid string top ($40) and solid string hipster bottom ($38). (J.Crew swimwear stands the test of time).

3. Best Discounted Designer Bikini:

If you’ve got champagne taste on a beer budget, try a discounted designer bikini like this Dolce & Gabbana black solid triangle halter bikini ($280, down from $350).

4. Best for Curvy or Full Figured:

The wide-band skirt of this Mara Hoffman Fold Over bikini ($112, down from $160) takes the panic out of pool time.

5. Best Halter (Best For Large Bust)

Sturdy halter tops are great for women with large busts; this Carmen Marc Valvo ‘Malawi’ twist front halter bikini top ($40, down from $66) and twist bikini bottom ($34, down from $57) is a favorite for the twist detail and discounted price.
