One of the best parts of summer vacation is going to the beach. The sun on your skin and sand in your toes; a day at the beach is easily one of the most relaxing and fun ways to hang out with your girls. But to make sure you catch the eye of that cutie playing catch with his friends, it’s important to wear a cute bathing suit. Whether it be a one-piece, a tankini or a bikini, these three stores have the best buys for your money.

Victoria’s Secret

One of Victoria’s best kept secrets could be her great swimsuit line. These trendy suits are only available on the Victoria’s Secret website, but ordering them online is definitely worth it. The prices are reasonable, the suits are good quality and they come in a wide variety of styles. Also, not only are these suits comfortable, but some customers even claim that the tops make their boobs look a little bigger. An ECG Tip: Buy swimwear from Victoria’s Secret at the very beginning of summer, or even a little after, when they are on super sale.


I know a lot of my friends buy their bathing suits from Pacsun. I love the patterns and styles on the suits, and Pacsun is home to a lot of popular brands like Billabong and Hurley. Another great option that Pacsun puts out are great board shorts, like these Roxy Shark Bait Boardshorts. The feel of this store year-round is very beachy and surfer, and it’s a great option of where to buy your bathing suits.


This is my personal favorite. Not only does Target offer a great selection, but they are the cheapest store out of these options. I have bought every one of my bathing suits for the summer from Target. One great thing about Target’s swimsuit selection is that the suits are sold in separate pieces, so you can mix and match your tops and bottoms. Target also has some great one-pieces if you feel uncomfortable in a two-piece suit.

Shopping at any of these three stores will be sure to snag you a cute suit for a great price.

    Can anyone tell me what brand the floral bathing suite is? It’s beautiful!

    I love bathing suits from target. But I find that the best time to buy them is before summer arrives. I went there last week and all they really have now is what’s out, which isn’t much.

    Victoria’s Secret provides a really varied selection for large-chested women. The tops come with extra lift and support. Check out their D-DD styles here: :)

    @ coryn Victoria’s secret bathing suits go up to a DD. that where i get mine :)

  6. Coryn says:

    I would love to buy my bathing suits at these places, but since I have DD’s it makes it difficult to find a bathing suit in my size. I’m thinking Diane’s is my best bet but I’m not so sure.

    I normally get my bathing suits at places like these, but this year I found out hollister was carrying a pushup and I love it. I have a very small chest and I was suprised to see how natural it actually looks on. Definitely more pricey than walmart or target but worth it to me :)

    I’ve found some great suits at Walmart but have found that their sizes run just a little big for my body type – it’s all about finding the store who fits you in every way: price range, style selection and size.

  9. Toni says:

    Actually, Walmart has cute ones right now too! Only $6-8 a piece. Beautiful prints and solids. Easy to mix and match. The brand is Op and they have really helped Walmart step up their clothes game. Haha, everyone should check it out!

    I totally agree with all of these! I feel like a lot of people assume that they’ll get better options at department stores. However, for me, that’s never been the case at all, and I’ve shelled more money than I’d like for a swimsuit that’s made for women ten years older than me. Go Target!
