Compared to what we normally wear on a daily basis, bikinis are tiny—so why do they cost so much?! It's typical for a two-piece to run you upwards of $160 all-in these days, which is just plain absurd. Good news: plus-size bikinis under $50 do exist and they are just as cute as their more expensive counterparts. Consider your days of overspending on swimwear over and get ready to stun in the sun.
Whether you're after a sleek, monochromatic set or you're looking for something featuring prints galore, there's an affordable bikini that will tick all of your boxes. Don't think that affordable means plain or that you'll have to make a compromise on what you really want in order to save a few bucks. From strapless to halter top and gingham to neon snake print, the options really are endless. Swimsuit shopping shouldn't come with financial guilt and it should result in you feeling sartorially satisfied, so throw out that old bikini that you've been holding onto for way too long and treat yourself to a new set. 10 ace options are below.
Gingham is always a great option thanks to its classic appeal that still packs a fun punch. The top of this set also comes complete with a keyhole and bow, rendering it extra cute.
