Sure, a swimsuit is not professional attire.  But we work to enjoy the fruits of our labor, and hopefully, those fruits include a beach, lake or poolside vacation.  So let’s talk about affordable swimwear, because we need to save our pennies for our workwear.

    I’ll give a shout out to Aerie bathing suits. I own a few of their one piece suits and they’re of great quality and they come in a range of sizes and colors.

    As a woman with a long torso, I almost jumped for joy when I saw aerie offers one pieces with a “Long” size option. Last time I bought a one piece (10 years ago….) I had to size up 3 sizes just to accommodate my long middle. Bought my first one piece in a decade this year, in my normal size!

    I just got the Merona laser cut one piece. It’s great, so much better than I expected.

    Swimsuits for all has pretty affordable suits! I have a bigger chest, so this year I am trying something with underwire, and I have found a lot of tops under $40. Much cheaper than Lane Bryant or Torrid, even on sale!

    I cannot say enough good things about Land’s End bathing suits. Although they may not be as “affordable” as these, they are super-customizable for body type/needs, including petite and plus, down to the type of bra and leg cut. You can also mix and match sizes for top and bottom of two-pieces. They also wear like iron. As someone petite, plus-sized, and needing a lot of support in the bust, I feel like so many of the “cheaper” options out there just aren’t going to cut it for me.

    I wanted to add one more recommendation: Uniqlo WOMEN PRINCESSE TAM.TAM SWIM BOTANICAL HALTER ONE-PIECE:

    Added bonus is that they have matching ones for little girls.
