    1. A classic string bikini you'll want to buy in every color. Why? It's sturdy, never goes out of style, and both pieces come to under $10!


    Price: Top: $4.96 (available in sizes S–XL and six colors); Bottoms: $4.96 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors)

    Promising review: "I always buy a $10 bikini at Walmart every year. This year it was the Pink Parfait, which is an on-trend pink/purple/orchid — gorgeous! Very well made of nice thick spandex with modesty lining. I am busty and so I love the size ranges, I need a different size top than bottom. Nice long string ties. Unbelievable price!!!" — diamondgoddessmary

    2. A gingham one-piece with a strappy front that'll inspire you to take a ~plunge~.


    Price: $20+ (available in sizes S–XL and 1X–3X)

    Promising review: "I LOVE this swimsuit!! I ordered it online after seeing an Instagram blogger post about it. I don't usually order one-pieces but this was so cute on her I couldn't resist. It fit perfect. Coverage on the butt is perfect. Adjustable straps always a plus! The plunge on the front shows the normal about of boob area any other swimsuit would. Very sexy!! A++++" —abhn

    3. A ruffled two-piece that'll set your heart a flutter every time you catch a glimpse of yourself. Beach photoshoot, anyone?


    Price: $12.99 (available in sizes S–2X and three colors)

    Promising review: "This looks more amazing in person then this picture. The padding in the top is thick; I have no worries about the top staying in place. The elastic around the bottom of the top isn't too tight but yet feels secure. The bottoms fit great, I didn't think they are quite as high waisted as I thought they would be, but they are higher then my other swimwear. It feels like good quality, it's not thin material and it holds its shape. The color is exactly as shown. This is a great swimsuit and the price is unbeatable." —littleIzzyShopper

    4. A pair of side-tie bottoms for a custom fit and an easy option for pairing with your favorite bikini top. You know the bottoms get pilled and worn out so much faster anyway.


    Price: $15.83 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors)

    Promising review: "Great swim bottom. The quality is great. And excellent value. It's high waisted and also adjustable. I will buy in more colors if they have it." —NC70508

    5. A romper swimsuit so you can go from the pool to the bar and back without even having to change.


    Price: $34.64 (available in sizes S–XL and four colors and prints; also available in sizes 1X–3X)

    Promising review: "I am so glad I bought this swimsuit. It's much nicer than it appears in the picture. Beautiful material and great manufacturing quality. Very becoming suit. I'm going to buy another one!" —Beach

    6. A cut-out maillot for the perfect combination of stay-all-day coverage (even on waterslides) and classic style.


    Price: $18 (available in sizes S–XL and in a black palm leaf print here)

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this suit! It's the perfect suit to cover, yet still feels fun and edgy. I was able to chase my kiddos at the pool all day and ride waterslides without it moving around and readjusting constantly. The best part is I'm 6'0 tall and have a horrible time finding one piece styles that are long enough. This one is perfect! Please bring it back next year in more patterns!" —MountainMama

    7. A scalloped-edge swimsuit in a cool textured fabric that'll make people think you spend more than FIVE BUCKS(!!) on it.


    The fit is on the short side, so size up if you have a longer torso!

    Price: $5 (available in sizes S–XL)

    Promising review: "This suit is gorgeous, sexy and fun in a tasteful way. I agree tho that it runs short in length so didn't work for my longer torso. Am returning but very regretfully because it is stunning." —MamaNPapa

    8. A vintage-y two piece with an adorable skirted bottom that'll make you want to twirl in the sand.


    Reviewers note it runs a little big!

    Price: $34.64 (available in sizes S–L)

    Promising review: "I'm always on the lookout for a suit that isn't 'the usual.' This one caught my eye for its retro flair. This suit covers a lot. The long line top has good support; the straps are wide at the shoulders for comfort and they are adjustable. Wish it was underwire instead of soft cups but I feel pretty snug in it — no wardrobe malfunctions are likely! The skirt just skims the tush." —HSAPrez

    9. A short-sleeve rash guard for a sporty look that'll keep your shoulders and back from entering a lobster-lookalike contest.


    Price: $44.95 (available in sizes XS–2X and four colors)

    Promising review: "Follow the size guide fir a snug fit or go one size up for a well fitting tee shirt fit. I sized up on this one and very comfortable fit. Looks great and now I feel protected from the sun." —Littecrip

    10. A simple one-piece with a barely-there back so you can show off your style while laying down on your beach towel.


    Price: $29.88 (available in sizes S–XL and seven colors and patterns)

    Promising review: "Five stars!" —Walmart Customer

    11. An '80s-inspired one-piece, because idk about you, but I definitely need a zip-front swimsuit after seeing Erika Girardi in hers on RHOBH this season.


    Price: $26.88 (available in sizes 1X–2X)

    Promising review: "This is the second time I purchased this suit, I wore the other one out over about six months of use at least twice a week. The fit was true to size and the coverage is pretty modest. I definitely like the built-in bra; overall very comfy for lap swimming. The first suit, I couldn't fully trust the zipper, so I used a safety pin to keep it locked. On the second suit the zipper feels locked, but I still use the pin, just in case." —Pat999

    14. A ruched one-piece so you can reenact the "If you're a bird, I'm a bird" scene from The Notebook at your local beach.


    Price: $34.64 (available in sizes S–XL)

    Promising review: "This has an amazing fit and does an hourglass figure so much justice! It doesn't pinch anywhere, is modest without being matronly, and the polka dot print is so cute. I'm thinking of buying a few more colors. LOVE IT." —Xyra
