Listen, we love expensive swimwear as much as the next gal. Trina Turk, La Blanca, L Space, Becca, Robin Piccone… We love them all. BUT, you don’t HAVE to spend a fortune to have good quality swimwear. We have been researching some different brands over the past year or so, and have honed in on some fabulous swimwear lines that are budget friendly for all!
Good Quality Swimwear…Under $50
Number Five – Obviously, J. Crew swimsuits aren’t typically $50 and under, but if you watch their sales (and they are having a lot of them these days), you can snag a classic bathing suit you will have for years to come at a great price. LOVE this one shoulder swimsuit with a tie on the shoulder. It is absolutely stunning, and it comes in several fabulous color ways! This suit retails for $110, but it is currently on sale for $55.
Love this take on J. Crew’s classic strapless bandeau one piece. SO classic and timeless – yet another fantastic piece to pull out year over year! This suit retails for $98, but is currently on sale for $49.
Number Four – We LOVE the Kona Sol line at Target. These suits are so well made and look much more expensive than they are! They are lined, hold up well in the wash, keep their color, etc…. This particular suit looks JUST like the J. Crew bandeau strapless bikini and is a fraction of the price. One of our stylists bought this suit in black last year and loved it so much, she added the red this year. The various colors and sizes go out of stock periodically because it’s so amazing, but if you keep checking, you will eventually get it! The bandeau top retails for $19.99, and the bottoms retail for $17.99.
This strapless floral one piece by Kona Sol is SO pretty. We love the print and colors. A great classic suit that features great coverage but is also a bit sexy! This fun suit retails for $39.99.
Number Three – Dixperfect on Amazon is another good quality swimwear line that is sold at great prices – and vetted by our stylists! This line is SO fun – their suits make such a fabulous statement! We had a hard time narrowing it down to four to show y’all. Keep in mind that all of these suits come in several different colors and patterns, and they all retail for $25 or less.
Number Two – Aerie’s swimsuit game this season is strong! We have several of these suits and have loved them! The colors are vibrant, and they are very well made. Keep in mind that unlike their clothes, Aerie’s swim line tends to run a bit small, and the bottoms can sometimes be a bit “cheeky.” That said, the next two suits we are showing are ones that we own and can personally vouch for! If you are into bikinis, we LOVE this one. It does come in other color ways, but my goodness it’s hard to verbalize just how amazing the colors in this one are! This pattern also comes in a gorgeous one shoulder one piece that retails for $54.95, but is currently on sale for $38.46.
RUN, don’t walk, to scoop up this leopard wrap suit from Aerie. It is universally flattering across all body types, and the leopard print is really gorgeous. If animal print isn’t your thing (but trust us, this print is SO fabulous), this suit comes in several colors, including olive, black, ocean blue, and sky blue. This suit retails for $54.95, but is currently on sale for $38.46.
Number One – We discovered the Hilor swimsuit line on Amazon last summer, and it has become a go-to purchase for us AND our clients. These suits are gorgeous, well made, lined, flattering with tummy control…. We could gush on and on! We are showing several of their suits that we love here because they are that amazing, and all of these suits retail for $35 or less!
