Fun in the sun will soon be coming to an end, but the end of summer doesn't have to be all bad. For starters, all the season's hottest swimsuits are on sale right now, so you can get that highly coveted "it" suit for a steal.

Not to mention, we still have a few warm weeks left, so end the season with a bang in one of the suits of this summer.

But just because the suits are on sale, doesn't make it any easier to find the perfect fit, especially while online shopping. So to make your life easier and your last few weeks of summer sweeter, we've rounded up the best suits on sale to showcase all your best assets.

Swimsuits that Highlight Your Chest

In order to highlight what you already have or add visual interest to that area, Jennifer Hinton, founder of swimwear brand Carve Designs, recommends opting for an underwire top. The underwire will offer support, lifting the chest, as well as creating curves.

Cassandra Kuzneski, founder of Cassea Swim, says that ruffles or other embellishments along the cups can also create the illusion of a bigger chest.

Swimsuits that Elongate Your Legs

Bottoms with high-cut legs can really "elongate the leg and makes you look like your legs go on forever especially if you're shorter," says Hinton. High-leg and high-waisted bottoms can serve as a double-whammy, giving you legs for days.

Swimsuits that Offer Support

"Lining is everything," says Joey Clark, stylist and owner of Kin Boutique in Philadelphia. "A suit that is double lined will help hug those curves and keep you comfortable when you are getting in and out of the water." High-waisted or tie bottoms can cinch your waist and offer all-day support.

Swimsuits that Elongate Your Torso

Look for straight suits that don't have bands or seams that cut you off in unflattering places, and try more of a low-rise bottom. You could also opt for a one-piece suit, without too many cutouts to also lengthen the appearance of the torso.

Cheeky Swimsuits to Showcase Your Curves

When opting to flaunt what you've got in some cheeky bottoms, make sure you pay attention to the material of the swimsuit; it can make all the difference. Tracey Munn from Fused Hawaii suggests looking for a spandex and nylon blend. First time wearing a cheeky or thong suit? Munn says you can never go wrong with a solid black color.
