While summer 2020 may not be the season of dreamy, faraway vacations this year, that doesn't mean we all can't enjoy basking in the sun closer to home—whether it be on your balcony, the beach or the local park—in an Insta-worthy swimsuit.
At the beginning of the summer, I marked the start of the season with a new bikini. I wanted something wallet-friendly that looked expensive. (Not asking for too much!). After a long search at all my favorite affordable retailers, based on a plethora of amazing reviews, I decided to go with a pretty textured scoop-neck bikini from Amazon clocking in at under-$25.
I know, I know. A swimsuit for under $25 on Amazon? You'd be forgiven for being skeptical, but when it arrived, I was taken aback at how luxe it looked. The fabric was high quality, had a thickness to it, and the color was extremely flattering. (Bonus: It also comes in a plethora of other versatile colors.)
While I'm usually more of a high-waisted bikini gal, I didn't mind the lower-rise bottoms—they fit my wider hips really well and are ideal for obtaining that all-over tan. I've worn it on several occasions (to the beach, on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs, on Insta), and I've received countless compliments. Jaws drop when I tell friends the price. So if you're looking for a cheap yet chic bikini for the rest of summer, scroll below to shop some of my favorites from Amazon.
