The Trendy & Flattering 2018 Bathing Suit Guide: Under $50, $100 & $200


It's that time of year again to go bathing suit shopping! I think I can speak for most of us when I say that it's definitely not an enjoyable shopping trip... Swimsuits have a way of making us feel so insecure, when really they should be making us feel confident in our bodies. There's so many styles, patterns, fits and of course, prices. And for something so many of us basically live in during the summer months, we all deserve a great (or many) bathing suit that we love to put on! No matter what your budget or how much you want to spend, I put together some of my favorite - and the trendiest - swimsuit finds to shop this season. If you want to spend $25, $50 or beyond, here's tons of swimsuits based on budget (and lots of different styles for different body types, too!):

Under $50:

White Lace Cut-Out One Piece / Blue & White Stripe Bikini / Pink & Orange Reversible Bandeau Bikini / Green Cross-Front One Piece

Under $100:

High Waisted Gingham Bikini / High Waisted Palm Print Bikini / Pink & Orange Colorblock Bikini / Pastel Criss-Cross Bikini

Under $200:

Colorful Striped High Waisted Bikini / Periwinkle Embroidered One Piece / Colorful Map One Piece / Watercolor High Waisted Bikini

This green cross-front one piece bathing suit is $19.99, yes, you read that right!!! It's SO flattering and it comes in a couple of other colors - such a must have, especially for the price!
I also can't get over how trendy and fun this high waisted palm print bikini is. It's great if you want some extra coverage and also gives the perfect amount of chest support no matter how small or large chested you are!

The under $50 column is proof that you don't have to spend a fortune to get a great, flattering swimsuit that you're comfortable in. But when you find a pricier swimsuit, you can bet that you won't ever have to worry about the quality *and* that you'll have it for years and years. If you're going to spend a lot though, you want to love it and feel great in it, am I right?!
This map detailed one piece bathing suit is THE cutest. It's so different and not something I would normally gravitate towards, but it's just so cute! And the priciest of my picks is this watercolor high waisted two piece; pricey but awesome quality and fit! It's one you'll have for many years and can count on looking like new every time you wear it for years. The colors are so gorgeous together!

Which of these picks is your favorite for summer? Here's some more of the cutest swimwear out there this season at all different price points to shop:

  2. I had one just like the deep v neck green halter style, I got it on amazon for $26 and it's a great suit only, word to the wise, you may have to sew it a little bit because the top looks nice and flattering BUT the side boob is chaos!! If you want to actually wear it in the water it may need some help so youre not accidentally flashing little jonny in the pool! And I no kidding just bought the vneck blue cross front!!! cant wait to use it on vacay next month!
