Summer Swimwear: Get the Best Bang for Your Buck!

The weather is starting to finally warm up and we have one thing in mind for the hot summer days – bathing suits! Whether it’s the push-up bikini or the risqué one-piece, we all are trying to find the cutest swimwear to show off while lying out by the pool or playing volleyball on the beach. This year, bright colors such as neon and pastel will be seen a lot when the sun is shining. With the many styles such as bandeau, halter and triangle, as well as the variety of exotic designs and colors to choose from, bathing suit shopping is always an event to look forward to. So how do you get the best bang for your buck!

Everyone knows that Victoria’s Secret is always up-to-date on the swimwear trends and has the hottest bathing suits on display for us to run in and grab. It is always a thrill when the VS catalog arrives with bold letters in the front saying “NEW! Bikini Tops and Bottoms”. With the many collections in store, it is hard not to find a bathing suit that you are totally in love with. Sometimes however, the perfect bikini you are ready to purchase has a not so perfect price tag. Us collegiettes want hot bathing suits but do not want to spend a high price – definitely understandable. Luckily, we’re here to tell you where you can find replica VS bathing suits, as well as many other fabulous swimwear, for a much cheaper price!
