Amazon has become one of the leading online retailers of just about everything. You can find me buying everything from books to food to clothes to… let’s be real basically everything. But what about swimsuits? Do those super low price swimsuits really hold up? Do they look like the photo? And how do they actually fit?
After spending far too many hours screening reviews of swimsuits I chose four to order. A retro inspired swimsuit, a popular off the shoulder style, a swim dress and a high waisted bikini. You can find an in depth review of these swimsuits in my ‘plus size swimsuit’ highlight.
Each of these swimsuits were $30 or less and I received them within 2-5 days of ordering. What I love about this is that they are inexpensive and I don’t actually have to leave my house to go shopping; I’m a mom of three small children there is no time for clothes shopping.
This ruffle one piece came highly recommended by a number of readers and it rates high via Amazon reviews. The material and quality of the swimsuit was good and was exactly how reviews represented it. This swimsuit would be great paired with a pair of cutoff shorts or a skirt to go from the beach to lunch. My only concern is that the ruffle top while cute might cause a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in the pool; I just imagine it would end up getting pushed up and look like a giant ruffle ring around you. Also if you have a long torso you may find it to be a bit short for you and I would suggest trying the high waisted two piece option instead. Overall I think this swimsuit is a win and it comes in a variety of colors and prints to fit your personal style. Rating: 7/10
Retro swimsuits are always a favorite of mine because they never go out of style and they generally always flatter any figure. With this retro suit I loved the ruching and the neckline. My only issue was once again I ran into the problem of it being too short for my long torso. I ended up going up a size in hopes that it would provide me with some length but it was still too short and too big in the boobs for me. Once again if you also struggle with having a long torso this looks like a great two piece option. Overall rating: 7/10
I saved my favorite swimsuit for last (and completely ignored the swim dress because it was not worth sharing). This high waisted two piece was by far the best fitting, most comfortable and functional of all the swimsuits I tried. It is fun and playful, a little sexy but also provides a good amount of coverage. I went up a size in it based on reviews but ended up finding it to be a bit big for me so I would say stick to your normal size. Quality, fit, color and price give this swimsuit an overall rating of 9/10.
While inexpensive, hassle free shopping is great you honestly get what you pay for. These swimsuits had a few flaws when it came to fit, the sizing is a little hard to determine but overall I was happy with my purchases (except the swim dress that was a disaster.)
