Ladies! It’s that time of year again! Time to hit the pool, the beach or your own backyard in your best one or two-piece swimsuit! Why not kick off the summer season in style with a new vintage-inspired little number?
I don’t know about you guys, but I hate to spend a lot of money on bathing suits. Most people only wear them a few times a year and the rest of the time they sit in a drawer longing for the ocean waves.
For that reason, I try to purchase my swimwear for as little as possible while still looking stylish. While I would rather wear a legitimately vintage suit, they are hard to come by in good wearable condition and if they are they are often quite pricey. The sizing can be tricky as well for fitting today’s modern woman.
Luckily, there are so many affordable options out there for all you pinups on a budget. I did the legwork for you with my trusty bargain hunting skills and selected 12 of my favorite picks for $55.00 and under!
From juniors to plus-size to maternity, I got you covered! Check them out below and I’ll catch you poolside (Don’t forget to bring the sunscreen 😉
