Summer Styling On A Budget: Where To Find Cute & Affordable Swimsuits

Summer is coming! The warm weather, iced tea, beach days and sliced watermelon are just around the corner. The only thing missing is a cute swimsuit. As college students in the midst of homework and exams all-year round, we often don’t have time to go from store to store trying on hundreds of bathing suits, desperately searching for the right one. But don’t worry! Her Campus has got you covered. Here are 5 of the best websites for affordable and cute swimwear!


Cupshe is my #1 go-to website for bathing suits. They have hundreds of different options, all ranging from $20-40. There are other comparable sites, such as Zaful or Shein, but Cupshe’s quality is what sets their company apart. I also really love how they have several more modest options, for those who want a bit more coverage. Their high waisted bathing suits are definitely worth checking out!


How can you go wrong with Aerie? This company is beautiful both inside and out, as they are all about body positivity. What exactly is a “bikini body”? Your body, her body, his body. Embrace yourself, and feel good in Aerie bathing suits. Aerie will even donate $1 to NEDA for every untouched swim photo you share on Instagram with #AerieReal. Also, they always have sales on their website and are constantly adding new styles every month. If you are looking for cute swimwear that endorses a beautiful message, Aerie is for you!


Before you say, “Target? I clicked this article to find trendy swimsuits.” Let me just say that within the past few years, Target has really stepped up their bathing suit game. To be honest, I stayed away from Target’s swimsuit section for the longest time after having traumatic memories of trying on ill-fitting tankinis during my “awkward years” in middle school. But after recently giving Target another chance, I found they have pretty cute trendy styles! The quality is good, and their prices are very reasonable too. You can’t go wrong.


Over 1000 options. Period. Okay, but in all seriousness, ASOS is a great website for trendy, high-fashion swimwear. ASOS also provides a plethora of different sizes and styles, catering to all body types. They have a great shipping and return policy as well, which is a huge plus for online shopping. If you’re looking for size-inclusive, trendy, cutting-edge suits, browsing ASOS should be your next homework break.


Pacsun is perfect for people that like a laid-back, effortless look. Their swimwear is simple and sporty, but still very trendy. The quality is on point, and any swimsuit you choose from Pacsun will give you an effortless summery look.
