Really… who likes bathing suit shopping?? Not us! Actually, we’d both rather have a root canal than go bathing suit shopping. Well, maybe that’s pushing it. But seriously, it just really isn’t that fun. Like Hallie says, for some of us, the package looks much better wrapped. And, with bathing suit season here, our carefully wrapped and curated packages get unwrapped. #feelingexposedsucks! Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely love summer, and everything that goes along with it, but this one little snafu puts a wrench into the pool and beach plans. And who wants to spend a million dollars on a suit that’s going to get bleached by the sun, discolored by chlorine, and a tush full of pilling from sitting on the side of the pool. Not us!

So, we turned to our favorite one stop shop and found AMAZING suits all under $50. Seriously, you HAVE to check them out…

Gold Bar

One Piece Bathing Suits

This looks just like the Marysia bathing suit but at a fraction of the price

You have to see the back on this bathing suit – you’ll look good coming and going…

Like a one piece bikini – perfect to camouflage non perfect abs

A bathing suit that visually gives that hourglass shape we all crave (while still hiding c-section scars)

Bikini Bathing Suits

The midi bandeau makes it feel a little less like your daughters bikini…

Scalloped details make this suit look much pricier than it is…

We love the edge the mesh inset adds to this suit.

Everything looks classier in chevron

This suit is “inspired” by the Kiini Bikini – adorbs, but probably more appropriate for the under 30 crowd

Tankini Bathing Suits

The lace inset serves as an optical illusion and elongates the wearer – sign. us. up!

The a-line design gives shape without cling

A keyhole center flatters, by allowing “the girls” to lift and separate (TMI? Maybe…)

Make it an outfit:

Cover-ups, so you can wrap the package if you want…

A classy and comfortable way to wrap it up.

Who doesn’t love pom-poms?

The pineapple print makes us feel beachy

This one is already in Hallie’s cart!

The strappy back on this cover up is everything!

And Hats

The good way to save face, a floppy hat


Up your poolside cool with a straw cowboy hat













A roll up visor stops all kinds of crush – no crushed hair and no crushed hat in your bag – it’s a win/win!


Really, where else can you get 12 suits for the price of one, and literally just as cute? NOWHERE! So, ladies don’t think for a second that this one stop shop is only good for your kids camp suits, and summer accessories, it’s good for yours too. Actually, it’s great! So, next time you’re at “Circle Boutique”,  give a look and maybe your bathing suit shopping experience won’t be as bad as getting a root canal… So, are you ready to take on the pool and the beach in any of these bathing suits?
