My love for summer is something else. Give this girl some warm weather, sunshine, and a cocktail near the water, and my heart is content. Sweet, sweet summertime, you are so good to me. And when it comes to fashion, summertime means swimsuits and coverups!
This time of year we’re all checking on the status of our swimsuits and coverups and replacing a few with fresh ones! We’ve all probably bought a swimsuit or two from Amazon, and quickly realized that there are some hits and a whole lot of misses along the way! So today the Living In Yellow Team is sharing some of our favorite finds.
Whether you’re heading somewhere tropical [jealous, take me with!] or sipping cocktails in your inflatable backyard kiddie pool, we’ve got you covered with swimsuits, coverups, and accessories all from Amazon.
Erin’s Swimwear Finds
Hilor one piece swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small in rose red]
I was so pleasantly surprised when I put this swimsuit on for the first time – for the price, I wasn’t convinced it was going to be anything worth talking about but I was wrong. I love how flattering this suit is thanks to the mesh detail, wide straps, full booty coverage and supportive chest area! I know I’ll be wearing this beauty regularly this summer!
Tempt Me One Piece Plunge Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small in neon yellow]
I bought this swimsuit a few months ago for a trip to Florida and have worn it repeatedly since. If you are larger chested, this is a great suit for you! I feel held in in this, a little bit sexy, but still covered enough!
Cupshe Bikini [size up if in between, wearing in medium]
I’m still not 100% convinced I am keeping this suit yet as the top feels slightly small for my chest, however, I wanted to share it here because it is such a cute bikini option. I love the nautical vibes and fun straps in the back! If you’re a bikini girl, this one is worth a shot!
Cupshe ruffled cross back swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small]
I’ve owned this suit for a year or two now and it continues to be a great one!
Tempt Me Mesh One Piece Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small]
One of the best swimsuits of all-time that I’ve ever purchased from Amazon [and definitely the crowd favorite of all-time as well]! If you don’t own this suit yet, get it. It’s so comfortable, keeps you fully covered but does have a small mesh panel in the chest to spice things up a bit!
I’m all for buying dresses that can double as a swimsuit coverup which is exactly what this maxi does! I’ve worn this thing to dinner, to the pool, and on travel days with a denim jacket over top! It’s an easy coverup to throw on and go for the day and is super soft and comfortable for all of your lounging needs!
Calling all brides to be, I feel like this is the swimsuit coverup you need for your bachelorette trip or honeymoon! And heck, if you’re 15 years into your marriage like yours truly, it’s still a great coverup to rock 😉
HARHAY Swimsuit coverup [wearing in 01 Light Green]
If you prefer your swimsuit coverups to be on the shorter side, this cutie is a fun option for hot summer days! Very breathable, lightweight, but quite a statement maker!
An old-time favorite here at LIY, this coverup took the internet by storm a year or two ago and so many of us are still rocking it on our pool or beach days! It comes in a plethora of colors, covers you up enough to feel comfortable enough walking into a beach bar and washes up perfectly! If you don’t have this in your coverup rotation yet, you may want to add it to the mix!
Lauren’s Swimwear Finds
I love a plunge one-piece, and this one is a great option! I like that plunges but still has a string there in the middle to keep the cups together! Plus, it’s also a lace up back! This button up coverup is also a great option to add a layer to seem a *bit* covered without completely covering up!
I fell in love with this crochet coverup almost two years ago, and it’s still one of my absolute favorites! I’ve worn it everywhere from local lakes to the beaches of the Bahamas, and it’s held up surprisingly well!
If you’re looking for a coverup that could double as a dress to wear straight from the beach to dinner, you just found it!
Katy’s Swimwear Finds
I can already tell I will be wearing this cover up A LOT this Summer It’s lightweight, flowy, and comes in 28 colors! I was excited to try these sunglasses, but unfortunately I think they are a little too “Lady Gaga” for me.
Swimsuit [true to size, wearing in small]
Well, nothing weird about putting a swimsuit picture out there for the world to see 😂 I ordered a few different suits to try and this was my winner! If you’re larger chested, I would size up one. It’s high waisted and I love the fun stripes, but it’s available in a lot of color and pattern options if stripes aren’t your thing. Two things to note on this suit: I do wish you could order different sizes for the top and bottom and it is on the cheeky side. Lake days, I’m ready for ya!
I usually don’t venture too far out of my go-to sunglass shapes, but these caught my eye! I’m not sure if super round frames would look good on my face shape, but I liked the fun, polygon shape of these. I love a good hat and this one is perfect to keep me covered this Summer! Bring on the sunshine!
Hannah’s Swimwear Finds
I’ve realized I am incredibly picky when it comes to swimsuit coverups… They either don’t fit my body right, too long for my petite frame or look like a potato sack on me [haha]. The minute I slipped this one on, I fell in love with the color and crochet detail and liked that it had a tie to create shape! Highly recommend this one, and it comes in tons of colors!!
This NEW to me one piece is by far my new favorite swimsuit!! Despite the moderate bum coverage I didn’t feel too exposed and felt so confident and comfortable in this one!! Just the right amount of details to make this one great quality and a keeper!
Another one piece that has great support, moderate coverage and I love the ruffle detail on this one! Such a flattering suit on and great quality for the price!
Becca’s Swimwear Finds
I am forever on the hunt for swimsuits that walk the very thin line between feeling covered and feeling sexy. Too far in either direction and I just don’t feel comfortable. This swimsuit is the perfect balance! I love the plunge with the lace up tie front that keeps things securely in place! The back is fairly open with a criss cross action and some adjustable straps so that you can get the perfect strap length for your body. I am also loving the ribbed texture and Caramel color that is just the right amount of fun compared to my usual choice of solid black!
I’m loving this easy breezy cover up. Wear it open, wear it closed — either way it looks cute! I love the flowier fit and the relaxed dolman sleeve for throwing it on and heading to the beach or pool!
This suit is perfect for pairing with a skirt or shorts to run any pre-pool errands! I love that it has the look of a cute top, covers that little awkward area of armpit fat, and I can’t be happier! I also love the fun open back, but that it covers the booty like a champ! Can’t wait for the weather to warm up to take this cute suit for a swim!
Cassidy’s Swimwear Finds
Yup. I found my perfect suit! I am IN LOVE with this suit from Cupshe! I love the blues and oranges together [hello complimentary colors] and it fits like a glove! The belt is adjustable and can be removed if you desire but I personally love the detail that it adds to the suit! The gold detailing was also a huge win for me–I feel like it makes the suit look more expensive than it is! It is slightly cheeky, buuuuuut I also have a big booty so…. Maybe on others it wouldn’t be too bad! But for me, I was comfortable in it and would have no issues wearing it around the pool or at the beach! The overall fit was really comfy and pretty much is the same shape as all the other suits I own [I love the high waist for my pear shaped body]! I paired it with this simple but chic cover up that I also fell in love with! It is a seersucker material, lightweight, and sheer but not see through! It does fit a little boxy when it’s all buttoned up, but I love wearing it open as well to show off our cute suits!

LIY Ambassador Finds
Swimsuit [size up one]
I am loving this suit – the ruffled shoulder is adorable and it is 100% lined which I really appreciate! I am wearing in a size 14 and the color Red. I normally wear a L in bathing suits so I would size up with this one as it seems to run a bit small.
Swimsuit [true to size, wearing L in Blue Green 1]
The beach is going to get whatever body I bring to it this summer 😆🙌 In all seriousness though, I just want to remind you that you’re gorgeous, amazing, and worthy to have fun, enjoy your time in the sun, and not worry [too much] about whether or not you’re rocking that swimsuit… because friend to friend – you’re absolutely rocking it!! Swimsuit is true to size, wearing in a L! It has pretty decent support for the ladies (I’m a 36G for reference) and I love the mesh cutout detail! This color is Blue-green-1, which looks darker in the listing.
Spring is here, which means sunny, beautiful days! These sun hats are packable, comfortable and adjustable! I have a very small head, so when I saw these hats were adjustable, I HAD to try them out, and they fit like a glove! They come in multiple colors and fun sayings on the brim! I can’t wait to wear them poolside and beachside! Amazon did not disappoint with the price point as well! Hope you love them too! -Allison
What’s one accessory you can never have enough of? Sunglasses! Lisa here and I’m thrilled to be a LIY Ambassador. I love rose gold and especially when it comes to looking through lenses! These great oversized sunnies are an Amazon steal. They come in 7 other classic and trendy colors. I also love these hoops and wear them often. I love a chunky hoop with minimal any other jewelry. These hoops are solid; but not heavy. The back clasp helps them fit very comfortably even with my sensitive ears.
I really do love all things designer! These YSL “save version” Heart Sunnies have been a must have in my collection! I love the shape, color options, and the price makes them even better! YSL $420, Amazon $12.99
This ruffle skirt coverup is a must-have on your next trip to the beach! The fabric is stretchy but not see-through, giving it the perfect coverage. To complete the look, I would recommend getting the most comfortable platform sandals to give it a more casual but effortless look.
