Reader Question: Bathing suits — cute but thrifty (and flattering)? Go!
Style Me Thrifty: Yay for beach weather! Boo on having to find a bathing suit that actually fits! Seriously, it’s like finding a needle in a haystack. The top fits but the bottoms are too tight. It doesn’t stay in place. It digs into your hips. The color washes you out. etc. I’ve been there! Luckily a ton of retailers are making cute swimsuits (even LOFT jumped into the pool!), so there are a ton of options out there. From retro one pieces to neon bikinis, here is a round up of swimsuits for all budgets and body types.
