Last week I shared some of my favorite one-piece bathing suits. From under $100 favorites, to more fun and unique ones that may cost a tad more. But today friends, it’s all about the super affordable swimsuits! I personally try to not spend too much on suits. Maybe one or two fun ones for the year and that’s it. The rest, I like to find on sale or at my go to store, aerie!

I’m all about mixing and matching too. Personally, I tend to always wear a plain black bikini. Call me boring, but it’s my thing. I like to switch up the tops, the bottoms and so on. I also try to get tops or bottoms that go with black like this black and white one or this super cute leopard bikini top. It makes it more fun to put together a look for the pool!

When the weather first warmed up in Atlanta (yikes it was like April) I ended up buying a dozen different suits from Aerie. Honestly, I wanted to try them all. I landed on this bra style bikini top as my all time favorite. I’ve paired it with these high waisted high cut bottoms. they’re super flattering but honestly, not entirely practical when you want to get a good tan. You also can’t go wrong with a classic triangle. I always have at least one of these

For Smaller Busts

If you’ve got a smaller bust, there are some great options you can wear. Anything smocked, bandeau or a lined underwire, extra points for some padding if you like! And as always, a good classic triangle top is perfect!

For Bigger Busts

Your girl’s got you. I’ve got a slightly larger bust and love a good bra style bikini top. It gives you the support you need. I also love anything that’s sports bra inspired or anything that has adjustable straps. These wrap tops too are great!

Favorite Bikini Bottoms

These are all based on preference if you ask me. Low cut, high rise, whatever you like. There’s so many options out there right now, get what you love!

      Thank you! I’m all about the high waisted too but it’s definitely not ideal for tan lines, ha!
