Trying on one piece swimsuits

…is kind of like cleaning toilets. Nobody likes to do it (nobody we know at least), and yet, it must be done. So, here we are.

We want you to know that Corrine tried on 30+ swimsuits over the last couple of years, before she narrowed it down to these.

One piece swimsuits that FIT WELL

First of all, you must know that ALL of these swimsuits pictured fit true to size. Look at the sizing charts on each of their product pages and go off that based on your body type. We were thrilled that none fit out of whack. It was a goldilocks win – not too tight, not too big, perfect fit all around.

They ALL have pretty good bum coverage, too. Full to medium, but nothing skimpy that will make you feel like you’re borderline wearing a thong (no thanks!).

AND they all include removable pads. (V important if you don’t want to scare others at the pool when you’re getting out!)

Affordable one piece swimsuits

Sometimes we find ourselves diving down into the rabbit hole of looking for a more expensive option thinking we’re going to find a cuter or better fitting swimsuit that way. Sometimes that’s totally true, but we also want you to know that you CAN find flattering, well-fitting, cute swimsuits within a reasonable price range.

Some of these swimsuits start as low as $32, so you know you’re in a good range of affordability AND still getting cute, well-fitting swimsuits, so we’re calling that a WIN.

Red Scalloped Suit

We are obsessed with this new suit that Corrine got for her family vacation to Arizona. The red is such a fun color for summer and the scalloped edges add the cutest little accent. The ribbed material on this makes it SUPER flattering. This suit is perfect for chasing after the kids at the pool or beach and keeps you covered where you want to be! This swimsuit is only $36! You can’t beat that price!

Classic Black Suit

This swimsuit is about to become your go-to staple for the season. It has a ribbed texture and flattering cut without showing off too much. We truly believe that everyone needs a classic black swimsuit in their swimwear lineup! This suit runs a little small so we suggest ordering one size up from your normal size. This suit is a little spendier ringing up at $148 but it truly one that you will wear over and over again!

Colorblock Cutout Suit

We are LOVING this colorblock suit that Corrine recently got. How fun is the keyhole cut out detail?! The color of suit that Corrine has is stunning and it also comes in seven other gorgeous colors! This suit provides coverage in ALL of the right places keeping you feeling comfortable and confident while spending time in the *SUN*. Grab this for only $32.99!
