If you're like us, you've been daydreaming of warmer days and sandy beaches all winter long. Now, as we round out the colder months and begin to welcome spring (hello, spring break!) it's finally time to start taking swimsuit shopping seriously. Target is a swimwear hot spot well known for on-trend and — most importantly — affordable bathing suits, particularly from Target-exclusive brands like Wild Fable, Kona Sol and Shade & Shore.
Swimsuit shopping isn't always easy, though. Fit, style, functionality and coverage are all different expectations to look for, and sometimes sorting through the endless options is exhausting. We did all the hard work for you by narrowing Target's swim section down to some of our favorite options, factoring in style and price point as well as features like tummy control and coverage levels. In the list below, you'll find elevated takes on classic one pieces, bikinis that offer a little extra support, chic beachwear for over your suit and more. The best part? They're all $40 or less!
It's not too early to start swimsuit shopping — in fact, some of the top styles are already selling out. So keep scrolling and don't wait to shop 22 of our favorite Target swimsuits and cover-ups below.
