Although it has probably been warm in the rest of the country for a while now, New England has finally reached beach weather! Warm, sunny days are back and that means summer clothes, including swimsuits, are a must!
But I’ve always found swimsuits one of the hardest things to shop for. I’m extremely picky about the fit of my clothes and since I’m generally a bit more conservative than other twenty-somethings, I balk at showing too much skin.
And on top of that – swimsuits can be so expensive! When I was shopping for my trip to Aruba, I was seeing suits that would cost $100+! For something I can only wear a few months out of the year (especially in New England!), that was just too much.
So, I took to one of my favorite sites, Polyvore to compile some suggestions for cute, well-fitting and affordable swimsuits to check out this summer season.

Each of these suits are $45 total, or less, which definitely fits in my budget. And that’s without sales or coupons – so be sure to check before buying any because you could be missing out on a great deal! With such great prices, you can have fun in the sun without having to worry about busting your budget 🙂
