The bikini trends of 2022 are all about having your very best, hottest summer yet. And making things even more fun, the tie-dye craze that swept the nation in 2020 is still going strong, especially in swimsuit form. This beach szn, you can try some new trends to make your tie-dye suit *pop* even more: think straps everywhere (including the “upside-down bikini” trend), minimal coverage (if that’s something you’re into), and bold cut-outs.

There’s a lil something for everyone here: We’ve got colorful tie-dye suits that channel a funky ’70s vibe and others that are more ~subtle~. We’ve got full coverage one-pieces for the ladies who’d rather not show their bellybuttons (it’s me, I am this person, and FYI, I found the cutest suit). And we’ve got the teensiest bikinis if you want the exact opposite. No matter what your vision is for your summer aesthetic, there’s a tie-dye suit to match. Promise.

If you’re down for a lil DIY action, you can find all the tips at the end of this post, yw. In the meantime, shop these 20 options and have the very best time on the water, bb.

for smaller busts

Strappy Tank Bikini Top

This simple pink number is perfect if you just wanna dip a toe (no pun intended) into the tie-dye trend. The bandeau with straps doubles as a bralette—just know that it doesn’t have a ton of support, if that matters to you—and the v-shape bottoms are so flattering.

Glowing Review: “Great colors, very flattering, good quality. Usually wear a size 36D and bought a XL.”

for the colorful

Leisure Reversible Bottoms

These ~reversible~ bottoms mean that you can have two suits in one. This one is neon pink and tie-dye, and pairs well with the tie-dye top (which also has a shelf bra, removable pads, and adjustable straps).

Glowing Review: “These bottoms are awesome and the fact that they’re reversible is ideal for making more swimsuit options. Holds you in without squeezing the pudge! I’m 5’7,” about 160 pounds, small chested, size Large. My first two-piece in years—very happy with it and how flattering it is.”

for the classic

Tie Dye One-Piece Swimsuit

  • not great for v short torsos

You cannot go wrong with a classic tie-dye pattern that absolutely channels the ’70s every time you put it on. This suit goes up to 3XL and has a plunging back for a *va-va-voom* effect.

Glowing Review: “SO COMFORTABLE AND FLATTERING! I’m obsessed. I’m 5’7” and 130 lb. Most of my weight on bottom half. Size B chest. Size small fit perfectly.”

for the fashion-forward

Ariah One-Piece Swimsuit

  • adjustable straps and stretch fit
  • might not be comfortable for everyone

If you wanna absolutely stun everyone at the beach/pool/lake/body of water, opt for this cutout suit. You have to be ready for some weird tan lines, but how cool are these metal pieces that hold top and bottom together and make the whole thing feel so edgy??

for the unique

Island Breeze Sarong Aqua Tie Dye

  • doesn’t have a full-coverage option

White Fox is great for customization: think two bottoms in this color and three different tops. All that, plus this fancy sarong, and you can basically make the bikini set of your dreams. Also, White Fox will tell you exactly which influencer was wearing this suit lately (lol).

for the most minimal coverage

9.0 Swim Frankie Multi Bikini Bottoms

This bb makes use of the minimal coverage trend and the straps-everywhere trend—it’s one of those ‘kini tops that’s designed to be worn upside-down, Kardashian-style. The style also comes in a floral pattern if this vivid color pattern is too much.

Glowing Review: “Absolutely in love with this whole set! Colours are so nice, fit is great. I don’t feel uncomfortable in the bottoms at all! Very sexy!”

for the sustainable one

Barcelona High Waist Bottom

With a bandeau and triangle top to choose from, and a high-leg and tie-side bottom as well as this high-waist style, you can customize the eco-friendly suit of your dreams. Also, there’s ruching to make the suits fit your shape perfectly, and each one is hand-dyed and unique.

Glowing Review: “The texture is perfect for a long day on the beach. It moves with you even if you start to feel bloated. Great in the water. It really fits right on the money. I took a risk not sizing up just to be safe and I was right!”

for the one who loves soft tie-dye

St. Martinique Bandeau

This cute bandeau bb is one of a bunch of options from Monday Swimwear’s new Cloud Collection—including a tie-top and sarong. It’s a soft, subtle tie-dye that (as the name implies) is supposed to look like pretty lil clouds.

for the one who keeps it simple

Women’s One-Piece Swimsuit

  • straps on the back are busy

If this vivid blue pattern is your thing, and you don’t need any wild add-ons, this simple one-piece might be your perfect fit. Also, it comes in a bunch of patterns if you just wanna ~browse~ a lot of fun suits.

Glowing Review: “I’ve spent more than $100 for suits for years. This inexpensive suit is just as good.”

for the one who digs jewelry

LA Hearts Tie Dye Spring Charm Triangle Bikini Top

K, so this is rather a loose interpretation of tie-dye, but you can’t not love the color-filled pattern, cute charm in front, and the super-flattering ruching (with more hanging charms!) on the bottom. Oh yea, and it’s on sale.

for the one who wants a “daring one-piece”

Jane One-Piece Swimsuit

Just wait til you see the gorgeous cross-strap back on this pastel beauty. The smocking helps everything feel secure, even while you turn a bunch of heads (and get the wildest tan lines) when you take it to the beach.

for the pink-obsessed

Stella String Top

  • has a fun flower-tie-dye pattern

You can wear this string top a buncha ways, and the thong bottom will give you that max “straps everywhere but minimal coverage” look you’re hoping for. Or! If you want to feel a bit more covered up, get the miniskirt and layer it over as a cover-up.

for all the retro vibes

Painted Tie Dye One-Piece Swimsuit

  • made from eco-friendly materials

Dolls Kill, which is currently selling the brand of my teenage dreams (Delia’s!!) has a very ’90s vibe with a modern twist. See also: this tie-dye pattern that has a buncha straps in the back for your Y2K-meets-2022 aesthetic.

for the rainbow-lover

Tank-Style Swimsuit Top Barcellona

Look like the most ombre rainbow ever with this surprisingly comfy two-piece. The straps can be worn straight, or you can criss-cross ’em to switch things up. Plus, there’s boning and mini-ribbed fabric so you can feel supported. Pssst: There’s also a string, padded, and push-up top and two different bottoms.

for the one who prefers neutrals

Triangle Bikini Top

For those who don’t like to wear alllll the colors at once, this black and white bikini is a more subtle take on tie-dye. The top and matching bottom have adjustable tie sides and a thong style for some fun, barely-there coverage.

for the subtle one

Playa Top

If you want tie-dye but make it subtle, try this brown-and-black version (although, if you like the pattern, it does come in blue and green options). There’s a low-rise and tie-strap bottom, plus a one-piece if that’s more your speed. Also, there’s a ton more tie-dye if you search on the site.

for the IG style star

Melon Tie Dye Padded Bra Top

If this suit looks familiar, it’s because Alessandra Ambrosio and Avani Gregg have both worn it. There are…a whole bunch of suit options in this color, including more full-coverage options, if you’d rather take the idea of this suit and then make it your own.

for the sunny one

Cali Rib Tie-Dye Bodysuit

  • cheeky thong coverage may not be everyone’s ~vibe~

Pair it with jeans or shorts and this basically looks like a cool tie-dye top. Hop into the water with it, and the compliments on this orange one-piece will come flowing in (pun intended).

for the beach mermaid

Frankies Bikinis Bash Top

My middle school self would have ~loved~ this cross-front rainbow top and low-rise bottom. It’s got “vacation in Hawaii” vibes. The color is literally called “serotonin” for a glimpse of how great it’ll make you feel.

Glowing Review: “Material is great. Wore it recently and received so many compliments.”

for the ombre queen

Coralsky Square One-Piece

Daze Days has a whole campaign of gorge tie-dye suits, from cutout one-pieces to the teeniest of bikinis. I actually have this one-piece: It fits fabulously and will totally double as a bodysuit when you throw your shorts on. Def size up, though.

Can you tie-dye swimsuits yourself?

Yes, you can! In that case, you’d buy an all-white swimsuit and some supplies, then follow step-by-step instructions to create the pattern and coloring you want. You might need to experiment a little to see how much dye the fabric takes and which colors look best, but this is a fantastic way to execute on a ~specific vision~ for a tie-dye bikini if you’re not finding a suit you like.

What is the most flattering color swimsuit?

It just depends on your skin color—there is no “right” color that works for everyone! But in the case of tie-dye, it can help to not have the dominant color be too close to your skin tone, otherwise it looks like you have strange blotches all over you. I tend to like a simpler pattern with fewer colors because I’m so short (too much detail looks a little “busy” on me), but it just depends on the person. When in doubt, experiment with a little more color and patterning than you’re used to. You might surprise yourself!

Here’s how we chose all these cute selects.
