Seems like this year everyone’s taking the plunge into plus size swim! So many styles to try but you can’t blow your whole summer holiday budget on beach wear. We’ve told you about the best luxury swim lines that have come on the scene from Timothy Snell x Always for Me to Eloquii. We’ve even told you about the show-stopping first swim line from Fashion to Figure that is affordable but still closer to $100 for a suit.
With so many days of summer, who doesn’t love a way to endlessly mix up your beach look without blowing your bank account? Here are my favorite buys ALL for under just $50! Obviously we turned to the most reliable sources for affordable trends like Forever 21+ and Target, but there are some great finds at newcomers like Loralette.
Target hands down had the most options for fun plus size swimwear under $50, so you will have to browse for something that suits your style, but these are my favorites. What says summer better than funky print bikinis, fringe and fun tropical prints? I also took a double take at the all-white, white-hot crochet suit that is certainly hard to find for plus sizes.
Forever21+ is definitely the place to go for the curvy juniors trends and maillots with mottos like this “Get Salty” swimsuit. The pineapple print has been selling out as has the “Not your Bae” Suit, so get there fast!
Swimsuits for all has my favorite bikini. Red floral, caged details, hipster bottoms and all for $53 for BOTH pieces!
For curvy cover ups, check out Avenue’s new trendy spin-off, Loralette. This tribal maxi is just stunning! You can throw it over a suit or accessorize it for rooftop cocktails. So chic! Also, finding a plus size pareo is usually hard to find, but this crochet wrap is great to flaunt what you’ve got while feeling a bit more covered while strolling to the pool. If you are a fan of the boss kimono look, check out this blue one at ASOS Curve. ASOS has a lot of great affordable options but many that just missed our $50 limit, but hurry since styles sell out fast!
Last but not least, top it all off with the very cute accessories by F2F! The Beach Please and Life’s a Beach idiom pieces are reminiscent of Kate Spade but at a fraction of the price.
Looks like you’ll have some online shopping to get to! Now, all we need is the beach weather…
