    Just 29 Of The Cutest Bathing Suits Under $50 To Take With You On Vacation

    I personally wanna make a few of these suits ~part of my worldddddd~ *in my Ariel voice*.

    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women’s.

    1. A tassel trim two-piece so you can show off that you're the hottest babe on the beach. Picture it: you, on the beach, wearing this bathing suit with a margarita in your hand.

    Reviewers recommend sizing up!

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed with this swimsuit!!!! I have been eyeing similar swimsuits all the Instagram bloggers wear (by a brand I won’t name :)) but couldn’t justify spending that much on a swimsuit! This is awesome and the quality is great. I listened to the reviews that recommended sizing up, and I’m glad I did." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 4–16 and 11 colors/patterns).

    2. A retro-styled one-piece that'll have Barbie shakin' in her boots because you'll be ready to take her spot in this suit.

    Promising review: "This was my first attempt at buying a swimsuit online without trying it on, and I was super nervous...but I LOVE this suit. Finding swimsuits is always a hassle with my bust size (36D) but this keeps my boobs covered. I got an XL, and it's perfect. No cutting into my skin anywhere. I was so excited to find out that it has a lining, so there's a double layer. Definitely recommend!" —Idkeim

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 32 styles).

    3. A ssssssoooooo cute and sssssooooo bright leopard and lime green bikini to rock all vacation long and shine with the light from the sun, as Paolo said in The Lizzie McGuire Movie.

    Promising review: "I haven’t worn a bikini in eight years and this was my first one and I fell in love. The material is of good quality. I am a size 10 and I got a medium. The only thing someone may not like is that it’s cheeky on the booty, but let that thang do its thang and enjoy the bikini." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 29 colors).

    5. one-piece with a lace-up front and a strappy back to give total main character energy.

    Promising reviews: "I am so happy I bought this suit! It ended up being my favorite all summer long even though I was hesitant to purchase. I loved the back and chest detail as well as the bright fun color and high leg line. The back straps are adjustable which is a bonus for smaller-chested girls like myself :) would definitely purchase another and recommend to anyone looking for a cute, affordable suit!" —JLynnRN88

    "By far this is the best one-piece swimsuit I’ve ever purchased! 100% would recommend!" —Melissa M.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and nine colors).

    6. A strapless bandeau set that'll have everyone craning their necks to look at you. You'll look sooooo fire in this, hotter than the beach.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to buy a bathing suit from Amazon, especially because my bottom half is usually larger in bathing suit sizes than my top. After reading reviews and looking at people's photos of the suit, I decided to purchase it. I am so happy I did. I am so impressed with the quality. The suit is made out of a nice thick comfortable material. If you are thinking about purchasing this definitely do. You will be so happy with this suit!" —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 41 colors).

    7. A high-waisted, colorblock two-piece to show a little cheek and give a high-fashion look. Now you're Miami beach-ready.

    Promising review: "Absolutely OBSESSED with this suit. From the quality of the material to the cut and style to the color and price — it’s a win all around! While I have a few suits in M, after reading the reviews, I was going back on forth on M vs L. I’m in between sizes, 5’3” and hover around 150 lbs. I sized up to L for this one bc I have wide hips and I am so glad I did! The bottoms are high leg and just cheeky enough to be fun but feel comfortable to wear around the fam! I want more colors!" —Symantha S.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 17 colors).

    8. A three-piece set, which includes a cute little mesh sarong that matches the bikini. And the top is super versatile so you can twist it into all kinds of cute styles.

    Promising review: "I have ordered MANY bathing suits off Amazon, and they’re always hit or miss. This one is definitely a hit!  It fits very true to size and I love the lime green color and slight sparkle of the fabric. Will order more from this company!" —Meredith S.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in XS–3XL and 35 colors).

    9. A freakin' adorbz halter bikini with little dangly charms on it that's a total must-have. So unique, so cute, soooo vacation-ready.

    Promising review: "This is the best-fitting bathing suit and so cute with the charms. Tops that will hold me in are usually hard to find. I want this in other colors." —Pavlina B.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 77 colors/styles).

    10. zebra print bikini that'll be the first thing you pack for your vacation because it's so so cute. The wild print is just a reminder of how wildly fun your vacay is gonna be.

I go to Cabo several times a year and I change my bathing suit twice a day like I’m freaking Beyoncé so I know what I’m saying when it comes to this!!!! All that to say, DAYUM, this suit made me look incredible!! The bottoms fit like 'cheeky' undies, not fully thong, not full coverage." —Ashley Q
