Shopping for a swimsuit isn't the easiest thing to do online, even with a handful of reviews to guide you. But, if you're in need of a flattering and reasonably priced option, and short on time, it may feel like the most convenient way to find one.
The good news is the classic one-piece is having a serious moment, and there are so many styles out there that are as confidence-boosting as they are budget-friendly. Not only does a one-piece take the stress out of finding a matching top and bottom set, it's also a lot more versatile than you may think. You can pair it with a cover-up dress to create the perfect one-and-done outfit, or style it with pants or shorts to pass it off as a cute top.
From wear-anywhere solids to bold patterns, there's a swimsuit out there for every personality and aesthetic. We rounded up some of the most popular one-piece styles you can shop now — and they're all under $50.
