50 Bathing Suits for Every Budget

Jess Ann Kirby enjoys the sunshine in a simple white bikini and panama hat

I have two thoughts on swimwear, the first is that life is better in a bathing suit, and the second is that one can never have too many. Yes, the summer season is only a few months in New England, but I think because of that I take full advantage. Last year I challenged myself to swim every single day from Memorial Day to Labor Day (I almost made it, I may have missed a few). So without further ado, here’s a round-up of 5o  bathing suits for EVERY budget, and I threw in some tunics and beach essentials too!


Keep it simple in a classic white bikini. Bonus, they compliment a tan very nicely.


Ultra flattering and so classic, the solid one piece is a staple no matter what. I tend to reach for black or white but if color is you’re thing a pretty pastel or coral is nice too (pictured below is Vitamin A). You can find the straw hat here.


While I love a one piece I used to be the master of the mix and match bikini. I would make a point of never wearing a matching top and bottom. What I love about this, you can get even more wear out of a few different bathing suits by combing them in different ways.


This one piece got a lot of compliments when I was in the Bahamas. It’s super flattering and really comfortable. One piece bathing suits are typically my go-to so printed ones that are comfy equals a win, win in my book (pictured below is PilyQ).


For the T. Swift fans, the retro bathing suit. High waisted bottoms and retro cuts have been making quite a comeback. I love the skirted bottoms, gingham prints and high waist cuts (pictured below is this top and bottom).


No beach day is complete without a cover up. A few of my favorite brands include CoolChange, LemLem, (pictured below is L*Space – also seen here and CoolChange) .

    May I ask what size you are wearing in the white Vitamin A one piece? I love it and think I might be a similar size. Thanks!
