It’s summer, so you know what that means: a new swimsuit!
You want a new summer suit, but your bank account is saying a big ‘NO’ to those expensive, designer swimsuits, so what’s a girl to do? It’s time to find cheaper alternatives to those bikinis you’ve been coveting. From one piece suits to something a little more tropical, we’re giving you the ultimate guide to finding swimsuit that you’ve been looking for.
Time to find the perfect swimsuit for you this summer… for less!
One Piece Halters
Everything But Water vs. Target
While we absolutely love this suit from Everything But Water, it’s hard to spend almost $200 for a piece of clothing you only use one season out of the year! Still, for those of us who prefer more coverage than your standard bikini, adding a one piece halter swimsuit to your bathing suit collection can be a cute and comfortable alternative.
Instead of spending a fortune, head on over to Target where you can find a one piece that suits your style. We recommend this Merona one piece that comes in black, teal, and coral.
The Simple Black Suit
Neiman Marcus vs. Forever 21
Just like a little black dress, every girl needs a simple black swimsuit in their collection and the Neiman Marcus strappy black swimsuit is something to die for.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to be convinced to spend $88 for just the top alone, so that’s where Forever 21 comes in to save the day. The store has so many varieties of swimsuits to choose from at reasonable prices, you could even afford two black swimsuits! Now that’s a win.
Color Block Swimsuit
Beach Bunny vs. Target
If we’re being honest, Target is a go-to place for cute and fashionable bikinis, but also have a pulse on what’s on trend this summer. One of the biggest trends is the neon color blocking bikini; it’s fun and has the pop of color that really makes you stand out on the beach or at a pool party.
Instead of spending over $200 for this (undeniably adorable) Beach Bunny suit, why not head to your local Target—or our preference, ordering online—and get yourself an eye-catching bikini? It’s really a simple decision.
Plus Size Swimsuits
Nordstrom vs. ASOS
As most of us women know, one size does not fit all. When it comes to finding the perfect plus-sized swimsuit, it’s not an easy search. Stores like Nordstorm might have a few options, but often times they have a limited selection and are at a price that no one wants to spend on a swimsuit.
That’s why you need to have ASOS as your best friend. This online shop has the cutest suits and we are absolutely obsessed with their retro flower halter bikini top. It’s so 50’s and you can show off what you momma gave you!
