Hi friends! I am starting a swimsuit try-on series! Here are the swimsuits I featured in my “Affordable Swimsuit Try-On” reel I posted to Instagram today.
- Target One Piece (I am in a 34DD. Comes in black + berry. Super super flattering from the front– great support for boobs and the cutout is flattering– but not quite so much from the side– especially if you’re having an extra bloated day, your tum may poke out the front cutout, if you mind that!)
- Aerie crossover high waist bikini bottoms + sports bra-type top. I’m in a medium in both. The bottoms are great, maybe would want slightly less fabric at the band but they are definitely flattering (these bottoms went viral on tiktok due to the same style leggings; so they sell out super often. If you want these and they’re available in your size, I would grab them); the top is not majorly supportive for larger boobs, I have to say– but would be pretty easy to find another, more supportive black bikini top if you have large breasts and want support, to pair with the bottoms. Maybe this one?
- Amazon swimsuit— a lot of bloggers wear this and it has looked great to me in photos! Maybe its my specific body type, but in person this was TERRIBLE. I will link it for you but the color was different than in the pics, there was zero boob support, the bottom was too full-coverage for my liking, the fabric was thin and i could see my belly button (hate that)– so I can only imagine how much less flattering it would be when wet– PASS.
- Abercrombie. Like this one a lot! In a medium in both top and bottom. It is almost sold out in my exact print, but I LOVE the yellow floral print and the blue and white print, as well! Super feminine and summery, had slight “lingerie” vibe so would be great on a romantic date/vacay. I noticed they have a matching bucket hat and sarong… I may need to purchase those, because I’m definitely keeping this suit. (Ps- I had not shopped at Abercrombie since 9th grade and had kind of forgotten they existed until y’all asked for this review, but OKAYY Abercrombie I see you and your cute swimsuits and your improved sizing inclusivity.)
These swimsuits were among the most highly-requested budget-friendly options requested for review by my Instagram community. I do have a part two coming, so if you didnt see your request in this video, stay tuned! I do hope this was helpful. Are there any swimsuit brands you would like for me to check out next?? If so, let me know in comments or via a message. xoxo
