Summer 2013 Bathing Suits – $50 and Under

I’m currently on the hunt for a couple inexpensive swimsuits for the summer.  I don’t like spending a lot of money on my suits because I tend to be over them the following year.  Swim suits can be tricky to shop for online; I recommend trying on in a store or knowing exactly which sizes you are if possible.  If you’re like me however, online shopping is your best friend, even when it comes to swimsuits.

Today’s post shows 5 very different styled bikinis–fit for various body types and figures.

The One-Piece Wonder

Nylon Tricot Halter One-Piece $50 – Americanapparel.com
I NEED. I WANT. NOW. This halter one-piece would look gorgeous on any body type.  However, it may be most comfortable on those of us with smaller chests.  It comes in a variety of bright, unique colors.  Pair it with a maxi skirt and this bathing suit transforms into a sexy halter top.

The Classic Floral Print

Tropical Flower Bikini Top and Bottoms $26.60 – Forever21.com

I love the shape of this triangle top.  It provides fill coverage with a small lift.  This classic flower print has so many colors that you could easily pair the top with a solid print bottom or vice versa.

The Flirty Bandeau

Ruffle Bandeau Top and Tie Bottoms $36.50 – victoriassecret.com
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of ruffles-unless it’s on a bikini.  This cantaloupe color would be amazing against a darker complexion.  The ruffles give it a feminine vibe without being too girly.

The Mix and Match Bikini

Lime Longline Bikini Top and Plait Bikini Pants $46.00 – topshop.com
This bikini top provides major coverage and has a vintage vibe that I love!  The bright color keeps it modern-especially if you pair it with the olive colored bottoms. This color combo is edgy but there were also other colors available on the website.

The Funky Fresh Bikini
