At the beginning of the summer, I marked the start of the season with a new bikini. I wanted something wallet-friendly that looked expensive. (Not asking for too much!). After a long search at all my favorite affordable retailers, based on a plethora of amazing reviews, I decided to go with a pretty textured scoop-neck bikini from Amazon clocking in at under $25.
I know, I know. A swimsuit for under $25 on Amazon? You’d be forgiven for being skeptical, but when it arrived, I was taken aback at how luxe it looked. The fabric was high quality, had a thickness to it, and the color was extremely flattering. (Bonus: It also comes in a plethora of other versatile colors.)
While I’m usually more of a high-waisted bikini gal, I didn’t mind the lower-rise bottoms—they fit my wider hips really well and are ideal for obtaining that all-over tan. I’ve worn it on several occasions (to the beach, on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, on Insta), and I’ve received countless compliments. Jaws drop when I tell friends the price. So if you’re looking for a cheap yet chic bikini for the rest of summer, scroll below to shop some of my favorites from Amazon.
