I swanee, swimsuit shopping is either really great or really frustrating. Nothing sends chills down my spine quite like imagining myself in a thong bikini with hip and arm straps that cut into my sweet meat. And these days there's a LOT of that with so many swimsuits cut to show your entire rear-end. Do that many women really desire their derrière to hang out?? If that's you, kudos girlfriend!
With a little digging, you can find a super cute swimsuit that's flattering, covers your booty, and doesn't break the bank. And that, my friends, is a glorious feeling indeed. Admittedly I started my hunt for swimwear under $50 afraid I'd find nothing but either really plain or really trashy looking pieces. Nope! Turns out there are SO many cute affordable swimsuit options that I'm totally re-inspired to grab a new suit or two for the summer!
All of these bathing suits are priced $50 or less and have moderate to full bottom coverage.
This is the one I was wearing in my Instagram Stories yesterday. Don't worry, it doesn't get sheer when it gets wet. It also comes in black. I always gets tons of compliments on this swimsuit.

This classic swimsuit has a darling scoop back and full booty coverage. It comes in tons of colors -- I love the carnation pink, citrus green, and navy stars print that just screams July 4th!

I've been on the hunt for a cute-and-classy leopard print swimsuit for ages. This one fits the bill perfectly!

I'm not ready to wear bikinis again just yet but I'm working on it. I love the ruffled top of this one.

I'm not sure this one says 'neighborhood pool day' but it would look FABULOUS on a tropical getaway or honeymoon.
3D FLOWER PLUNGE SWIMSUIT
Playing Barbies growing up was like my very favorite thing to do and I had a hard time giving them up! I love the vintage vibe of this striped swimsuit.
Another rainbow striped suit that has removable straps. I love the color combination of this bathing suit.
BLOCK STRIPE SWIMSUIT
The ruffled one-shoulder neckline of this swimsuit is so pretty. It's identical to the red one I bought last year and loved. I'll be wearing mine again this summer for sure! This one also comes in navy and black.
RUFFLED ONE-SHOULDER SWIMSUIT
OMG this two-piece is so stinkin' cute I just can't. I love the color, stripes, and strappy back. It also comes in a bright blue.

Love the bow-tie detail on the straps of this gingham bikini.
GINGHAM BIKINI TOP AND BIKINI BOTTOM
I couldn't resist the rainbow print of this halter top! So fun and cheerful. The matching bottom were super bootylicious so I pulled a white bikini bottom with full coverage that would work just as well.

This isn't a swimsuit obviously but how fun is this striped beach dress you could totally wear as a cover-up or just as a dress?? I have to have it!
