20 Adorable One-Piece Swimsuits Under $50

Faithful reader, MacKenna, asks: "Places to find cute, affordable one-piece swimsuits? Anybody?"

Sure, she wasn't asking me, specifically, (I should have cut out the "Anybody?" bit if I wanted it to make this look like she came to my blog for fashion advice), but the results of my research following her facebook-posed question could not be contained in a mere status comment, so here we are.

I always really want to buy swimsuits at this time of year, but can't justify it. I have six swimsuits and four of them even fit me well enough to be worn in public. Which is plenty, considering I go swimming like eight times a year on average. But they are such a fun article of clothing. You can go crazier with patterns and colors with swimsuits than other things for whatever reason. The last swimsuit I bought is snakeskin pattern. Snakeskin! Who'd've thought I'd ever wear anything in such an ugly print? But I love it on that swimsuit.

Anyway, MacKenna's question allowed me to justify "shopping" for swimsuits, within the rules of "one-piece" and my self-imposed budget of $50 ("affordable"). So for that, I must thank her.

Here are 20 favorites found today, from various sources:

Florals: 1) H&M $34.95, 2) JC Penney $22

Next time I ask a question on FB, I'll make it school-related so you can do my homework for me.

We have found that adding swim shorts to some swim suits or even a sports bra can make the suit have a cute layered look and "fix" problem suits so you feel more comfortable. It was a fun discovery for us and made swimsuit shopping more pleasant. It does jack up the price though. We all found everything we needed at WalMart including the suit!

I once almost bought a bathing suit with skulls on it. no, i haven't become gothic. it's just like the snakeskin - not something i would normally wear but somehow becomes cute and acceptable once it's just a tiny piece of fabric intended to be worn in the sun.

This is a good deal to purchase the suits online. Do you also have sports bra, zip up swimsuits, crop top, fitness top, discount tankini, skirted one piece swimwear, cut out one piece swimsuits, jumpsuits swimwear, buy bikini swimwear.
