Two-Piece Swim Skirtini Set
Best for the most coverage. When we say two-piece sets, the first thing that comes to mind is bikinis. Yet, there are other swimsuits of two pieces rather than bikinis. This Two-Piece Swim Skirtini Set is one of the different options we would like to give a try as it was very different from all other sets we have tried before writing this review. It includes a loose top and a skirt similar to those you wear for some sports such as tennis.
We know this might look weird to some women, but we really felt too comfortable in those. Plus, they offered maximum coverage for modest women. There are different two-toned options for the set. Also, there are sizes for all women, including fuller figures. Perhaps, the best thing about this set is that we could wear it for a sports day by the pool and a normal beach day as well.
“We wore this set for water aerobics and can’t describe how comfortable and flexible this set was. The best option for active women so far!”WOW Travel
- It’s the best set for water activities
- It comes in different sizes, including plus sizes
- The material is stretchy
- The price is slightly expensive for a swimsuit
Tutorutor Peplum Tankini Top Swimwear
Although patterns, especially large ones, are known to add more weight, we didn’t mind trying one of those large patterned swimsuits as it looked too nice to leave. Tutorutor Peplum Tankini Top Swimwear has the best floral pattern out there if you’re into flowers, leaves, and such bold patterns. We felt so confident wearing this swimsuit and were more confident in a plus size that didn’t look odd. Instead, it was as flattering and charming as it looks in the image below.
The ruffles on the bust and waist look so girly, as if you’re wearing a dress. We loved how this set gave us a girly style without looking too childish. You’ll still enjoy the lady inside with this set. Apart from the design, it’s so comfortable and soft on the skin. To know more about these two pieces from Tutorutor, check out this review from Don’t Waste Your Money. Also, if you enjoy a survey body and want more plus-size options, check out our review of the best bikinis for plus-size women.
- The floral print is so attractive
- It offers bust support
- The material is soft
- The bottom fits a little big
Yomoko High Waist Bandage Bikini Set
Yomoko High Waist Bandage Bikini Set is available for both plus sizes and normal sizes. Even more, it’s elastic, and it stretches perfectly, so it fits different shapes as well. However, we felt that the elastic parts on the two sides of the bottom weren’t as much stretchable as the top part. Yet, it’s still a great option if you need a quick swimsuit that also looks flattering.
We could easily adjust the shoulder straps for an exact fit and then clasp the hook on the back. There is much support for the bust with padded bras so as to offer more comfort and keep everything in place. As we had a yoga session on the beach this day, we didn’t find anything better than this set to practice yoga by the sea and feel comfortable and covered.
- The shoulder straps are adjustable
- It covers most of the body
- The material is elastic and comfortable
- The bottom is a bit tight for some people
Mansy Tripe Padded Push Up High Waisted Bikini
Mansy Tripe Padded Push Up High Waisted Bikini offers modest wear for ladies looking for more coverage and a trendy style. We didn’t know that we can look fashionable with minimum effort until we got this simple two-piece set. If you’re a lady who doesn’t want to show off much of her cleavage, this bikini set is your choice. We thought the top needed a bra for support once we received the set. However, it was a big plus that it has removable pads to enhance the shape. We felt like wearing a sports bra with enough stretch to fit different bodies. Yet, it seems like it won’t look good on women with large bust sizes. Moreover, striped tops may add some weight, so if you want to look slimmer, we don’t recommend the sets with striped tops. There are other better options.
- It has removable pads
- The material has some stretch
- It dries out quickly
- The top doesn’t fit large sizes
Zaful Strapless High Cut Bandeau Bikini Set
Want to show off more than what you cover? Zaful Strapless High Cut Bandeau Bikini Set is your first option. This strapless two-piece set covers what needs to be covered and shows off the curvy hips and flat belly you have been working on for the past few months. Whether you have a large bust size or a small one, this set will exactly fit you because it’s fully adjustable using the back straps.
We wanted to go for something different, so we chose the patterned option that looked so tropical and different from any other patterned bikinis we have ever tried. The top part was padded, but it wasn’t fully supportive. The best thing here is that the tops and bottoms can be sold separately. This YouTube video review from ZAFUL shows some of their top bikinis, including this one.
- The price is cheap
- There are nice colors and patterns
- You can buy the top or the bottom only
- There is not enough breast support
KABETY Ruffled Racerback High-Waisted Bikini Set
Are you looking for more tummy control? KABETY Ruffled Racerback High Waisted Bikini Set will hide all the rolls and curves you don’t want to show. This two-piece set has a ruffled top and a ruched high waist bottom that together work on flattering your trunk. Further, we loved the flamingo bottom a lot. It’s one of the unique designs we came across while searching for trendy bikini sets. This set will surely make you stand apart from the others.
Before recommending and including this swimsuit on our list, we tried it for a day on the beach, as usual. Actually, we faced a problem picking the right size because we wanted a large bottom but a medium top for an exact fit. We know this problem won’t be common for all ladies, yet we thought it would have been better if they considered making the top adjustable as it’s already loose because of its ruffled style.
- The set offers much tummy control
- The flamingo bottom option looks very unique
- The price is good for what is offered
- The tops and bottoms sometimes don’t fit together
Zando Halter Push Up Bikini
Zando Halter Push Up Bikini are suitable bikinis for teens, adults, and all women who love this style of swimsuit. There are seven sizes of this bikini set, and all of our reviewers could find their exact size to give it a try. We also found two options for the bottoms, a high-waisted bottom and a boy short. Personally, we loved the bikini bottom more because it looks more feminine. The set is sold at an affordable price. However, the material or the overall quality wasn’t the best we have tried. This wasn’t a big deal as it still did its job as required. Overall, this is a swimsuit we would pick if we need to save some money and look great and on-trend at the same time. Don’t forget to check all the colors and designs of this set.
- It’s stretchable and comfortable
- The bras are padded for more support
- There are many colors and designs
- The quality isn’t the best
Daci Plus Size Two Piece High Waisted Ruffle Flounce Set
We fell in love with Daci Plus Size Two Piece High Waisted Ruffle Flounce Set for the top part in the first place. We really felt that the top part was a normal casual blouse, not just part of a two-piece set for summer. The ruffles and the knot add to the beauty of the set. At the same time, the ruched bottom offers more tummy control than we expected.
The set we are showing you here is designed for plus sizes. However, Daci has lots of other options for smaller sizes. Generally, we found one thing common in most of Daci’s sets; they hug the body in a flowy way that hides the imperfections and shows off your beauty. Maybe it’s related to the high-quality material used to make the set. Overall, we were so much satisfied and felt very confident in this set.
- The material is high-quality
- The design is suitable for plus sizes
- There are many colors and patterns
- The top doesn’t have much support
CUPSHE High Waisted V Neck Twist Front Bikini Swimsuit
CUPSHE High Waisted V Neck Twist Front Bikini Swimsuit is one of our top picks that flatters the body and looks great on different body shapes. This bikini is for you if you want some tummy control without hiding your belly button. We enjoyed our day by the sea in this brick red colored bikini, and we got so many compliments for how it made our bodies look sexier. The top part has a nice twist and padded bras for support.
These pads are removable if you want to enjoy a smaller bust look. Further, the straps are adjustable, so you can hide or show as much as you want from your chest. We also loved the other options with patterns and different colors for the tops and bottoms. Here is a try-on review from Dr.Lindsey Schmidt for different CUPSHE bikinis. You can check this one in particular from the fourth minute of the video.
- The swimsuit fits different body shapes
- It has removable padded cups
- There are many color options
- The bottoms run a bit large
Aqua Eve Plus Size Flounce Off Shoulder High Waisted Bikini
Best for plus sizes. Those who wear plus sizes can also enjoy an attractive outfit on the beach that flatters their bodies and accentuate their lovely curves. Aqua Eve Plus Size Flounce Off Shoulder High Waisted Bikini is the best plus-size swimsuit we have ever tried. This summer, the flounce off-shoulder style with the criss-cross part on the cleavage is our favorite. Whether you have a large or small bust size, this style will look perfect on you.
Like most women, the biggest problem is always the love handles and belly fat. Luckily, the bottom of this set is high-waisted and ruched to hide the things we didn’t want to show. Although the set is available in patterns as well as solid colors, we loved solid colors more. However, we have to say that some colors weren’t very similar to the ones shown in the pictures.
- The style is so unique
- It’s suitable for large and small bust sizes
- It offers much tummy control
- The colors aren’t very accurate
CUPSHE Floral Print Knot Bunny Tie Two Piece Set
Most comfortable. Floral prints never go off-trend, and CUPSHE Floral Print Knot Bunny Tie Two Piece Set proves that these prints can look super cute, trendy, and super comfortable as well. The first thing that caught our attention in this set was the nice blend of colors in each pattern. We believe the designer of this set understands the psychology of colors to be able to create such soothing and attractive colors in one set.
Next, the design of the bikini itself is so comfy. The material is nylon and spandex, thus, we could easily feel the stretch of the material to fit our bodies. In addition, it was the softest thing that touched our bodies this summer. We didn’t actually feel we were wearing anything at all, yet, the fabric wasn’t see-through. If you’re interested in more cute bikinis like this one, check out our list of the best cute bikinis for summer.
- The material is so soft and stretchable
- The colors and patterns are so vivid
- It comes with removable soft cups
- The sizing has some issues
SHEKINI Push Up Halter Bandage Bikini
Best for mixing and matching. One of the major concerns we had while we were preparing this list is the differences between the two pieces of the same set. In other words, sometimes we like the top, but the bottom isn’t our favorite or the opposite. SHEKINI Push Up Halter Bandage Bikini had a solution to our problem, as each piece can be bought separately. This way, we could match colors and patterns according to our tastes.
The bikini highlights the belly and hips with its Brazilian cut and low-waist bottom. It’s a nice way to enjoy a sunbath while maintaining your chic style. Since the top comes with a self-tie back strap, we expected some stretch in the fabrics. Hence, this was one of the things we made sure to check before adding the bikini to the list. And yes, it’s 18% spandex, and the rest is nylon for a quick-dry and stretchable fabric. It didn’t really fail us.
- The tops and bottoms can be bought separately
- The material is stretchable
- It’s soft and comfortable
- The top part doesn’t have the same normal bra sizes
Tempt Me Retro Halter Ruched High Waist Bikini
We didn’t know we like vintage swim sets until we bought Tempt Me Retro Halter Ruched High Waist Bikini. It showed in a nice way how the vintage styles could be converted to a super feminine and fashionable bikini like no other two-piece set on this list. With more than 40 colors, we didn’t know which color would look the best because they were so trendy.
The set with polka dot bottom and the other one with leopard bottom were our favorites because they leveraged the vintage style we wanted. As for the top piece, it has enough support, and the self-tie neck strap also offers more versatility. On the back side, there are two straps for more adjustability. Generally, the set is true to fit most women. There are sizes from XX-small to plus sizes, and the size chart is easy to understand.
- The bottom is ruched for tummy control
- The top is fully adjustable
- There are more than 40 colors and patterns
- The price is quite affordable
- Some women wanted different sizes from the top and bottom
We know it might be confusing to choose from all the above sets as they all look attractive and stylish. So, why don’t you start with this short list of our favorites from all the previous 13 pieces?
- Best for the most coverage: Two-Piece Swim Skirtini Set
- Best for plus sizes: Aqua Eve Plus Size Flounce Off Shoulder High Waisted Bikini

How To Choose The Best Two-Piece Set for Summer?
With so many options, brands, and styles, choosing the right swimsuit isn’t the easiest thing ever. Hence, here is our buying guide that we personally used for preparing this review.
There is no rule for choosing a swimsuit style that you like because it’s just a personal taste. However, some styles look better on certain body shapes. For example, ruched high waist bottoms can reduce belly fat and offer a better-controlled tummy. Similarly, a halter neck can make a large bust size look smaller. On the other side, high-leg bikinis show more of your hips, so they’re better for hourglass-shaped bodies. Ruffled tops add volume to the bust area, so they’re better for women with small bust sizes.
Swimsuits come in different materials, but the main thing to look for is quick dry, waterproof, and your own comfort. Some people might have problems with certain materials as they irritate their skin or cause itchiness. So, check the material specs first before buying. Make sure you have tried this material on your body before to make sure it won’t have any side effects on your body.
Bright colors are always trendy and suitable for summer, yet sometimes, some colors pop up in certain seasons more than others. If you love to stay on-trend, you might go for such colors. This year, soft color hues are the trend, such as soft pink, lavender, ivory, and light blue. The best is black, which is always hot and trendy in all seasons.
How can I know my bikini size?
The top piece is usually similar to your bra size. You can measure the bust circumference to know your size. On the other hand, the bottom part size is determined by measuring the hip and waist circumferences.
What is the best material for swim sets?
Polyester is the best and most used material for swim sets. Other materials that might be used with polyester are nylon and elastane for stretch.
How to look fashionable in an old two-piece set?
You can simply add some new accessories to your old bikini to look different. A swimsuit cover-up will do the trick, or a new pair of sunglasses or a sun hat.
