Where to Buy Cute & Affordable Swimsuits

While my personality and dresses have been inseparable after my post on where to find affordable dresses, many of you ask me: what about swimsuits? Because I spent 1.5 years living on the beach in Playa del Carmen and a year in Los Angeles as a digital nomad, I’m always on the lookout for cute bikinis.

Swimsuits can be insanely expensive. Quite often when I look at the prices of some of the Instagram-famous swimsuit brands, I keep wondering who pays $300 for these? While I can understand the designer part, unfortunately, many of those brands actually buy cheap swimwear in bulk from Chinese companies, repack them nicely and boom – sell the same items at ten times the price you could actually get yourself — if you purchase directly from the retailer.

The good news is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to own a few cute bikinis. Here are my recommendations for the best stores that sell affordable swimsuits.

Where to Buy Cute Swimsuits?

Since we’re talking about affordable swimsuits, here’s my great money-saving tip for online shopping. About a year ago I found out about Ebates and so far I got $300 back for the items I bought.

What is Ebates? It’s the largest Cash Back site that partners with over 2,500 of the biggest name brands. Basically, you get cashback for every purchase you make.

The best part is that you don’t need to click through a million things, but simply install a browser extension. It will start flashing red for the participating stores, and all you have to do is to activate the cashback at checkout.

Ebates can also apply coupon codes to pay even less for your shopping on top of the regular cashback. It’s totally safe and secure, as 3 million other people are using it too.

SheIn – 6% Cash Back

Shein pronounced ‘SHE- in’ is my number one store these days for clothes and swimsuits. It’s very cheap and the quality is basically the same as at other stores. Do check their size charts for every single product.

Return Policy: Returns with SheIn within the US are free, quick and painless. I’ve never had an issue and they always refund on time.

BooHoo – 5% Cash Back

Another very affordable brand that has some of the cutest and trendiest swimsuits out there. I tend to order UK size 8 from them and they usually fit.

Yoins – 6% Cash Back

I have to admit I was quite hesitant to order anything from Yoins. The company had pretty bad reviews and clothes seemed way too cheap. However, so far Yoins has not disappointed.

As the name indicates this store sells bikinis. You’ll find absolutely every single model out there, so prepare yourself. I usually order size S from them.

Amazon is a good place to buy affordable and cute swimsuits for women. I like that returns are easy and you can usually rely on other people’s reviews.
