Great Affordable Swimsuits - Under $15

I think most of us that don't live near the ocean or haven't had a pool in the backyard for a while have a couple of swimsuits that are a little tired.  Since the pool was finished the first week of June, I have been on the hunt for several bathing suits that I can wear and switch off on different days.  We haven't taken a trip to a beach location since our last trip to Hawaii in 2012, so I haven't really shopped for bathing suits in a while. I was surprised at how hard it was to find a great one piece suit and surprised that some of the really nice ones were so expensive - up to $170 didn't fit my budget if I wanted more than one.

I am not a bikini style person, I really don't have the figure for that, but I did want something that was stylish and fun.  I searched all over the place and on line, then a friend said she found a really cute suit on Amazon.  Well the timing couldn't be more perfect, everything is marked down to practically nothing for some really cute swim suits.

Here are the ones I ordered - - -

I love this criss/cross style and it has a tummy hugger feature that is super too, plus such fun colors that really go with my pool color.  Price - you won't believe $11.68

 I think we all need a really cute black suit.  This is one that will look great with a wrap around my hips when we entertain.  Price - an amazing $12.00

I love polka dots on anything and this one has my favorite criss/cross wrap style with tummy control.  Just about the perfect one piece suit.  Price are you ready - -$13.22

I really like the square neckline of this one and the fun colors.  The design really makes the waist look small and is another one that will look great with a hip wrap.  Price - this is a giveaway at $6.49.

I have a black sarong that I use as a skirt coverup, but wouldn't this one be great for a party and for just $10.71 it is so chic and fun.

  So if you need a bathing suit at a really, really unreal price check out Amazon.  These are all well made and fit like a dream. (I wear a 12 and they were true to size.  I am even a little long bodied and they still fit beautifully and the quality was great.  I would have paid much more for all of them.   Oh and by the way, they had some fabulous bikini's too at really amazing prices.

P.S. here are the links to all the suits and the sarong.

  1. Thank you SO much for this post....enjoy following your blog, made your coconut cream pie and it was a big hit, and even got inspired to start my own blog! Very basic, but we are moving in a month to a new apartment home(recently retired and downsizing) and the community has three swimming pools. I need some new suits and this post came at the perfect time. Your new pool looks amazing - enjoy it and your new swimsuits. I will be ordering a few today!

  2. I Marty,
    I love the breen green suit. DO you have a link to it? I looked on Amazon but couldn't find it or the brand.

      This is the link to the suit. Hope you like it.

  3. Oh my, can't believe the price and very nice styles too! Thanks for the tip!

  4. Wow. Great prices and style. Let us know how they fit and if the sizes are correct. It's been ages since I bought a swimsuit. Love the cover up in the last photo. If only my legs were that long !

    1. I wear a 12 and it was perfect. I am a little long bodied and they all still fit very well. I love them and they were all really great quality.

  5. Did you already receive them? Did you order your normal size. I find it hard to buy suits online without trying them on first. It seems I always have to size up in a suit.

    1. True to my size 12 and the quality is really good. I really like all of them and would have paid much more. I think they are fabulous.

  6. The blue one is fabulous!

    Love the sarong too.

  7. You are WONDERFUL. I would never have thought to look on Amazon!! We own a cottage on a lake that we summer at .... so this is PERFECT!!! And we are going on a cruise in January ... I will order a few and be ready!!

    Thanks for the tip.

  8. Do you have links for the suits and sarong? I couldn't find them, but I might have missed them.

  9. I just cant get over these great prices. I love the first blue suit and the sarong is fabulous!
