Must Haves: 7 Sassy One-Piece Swimsuits For Under $40

I do a lot of bathing suit browsing, but I have yet to replace my worn out swimsuits.

If you too are in the market for a one-piece, try one of these suits for under $40!

Must Haves: 8 Radical Rashguards

In the summer, I love to do everything outside. I would happily soak up the sun at the beach, pool or park all day long, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become more aware of the sun’s negative effects. Even my olive skin tone can’t handle a full day under the cloudless sky and the most vulnerable areas on my shoulders and chest can’t get enough SPF. Last year, I discovered rashguards, so instead of running for cover at the first signs of a burn, I can now toss one on and sip iced tea as I lazily float around the pool.

sharkini bathing suit

The sharkini, inspired perhaps by a certain Ian Ziering-helmed SyFy movie thriller, is a bathing suit that send a vital message: Be careful in the water, okay? The Sharkini retails for around a $100, but its value as a walking PSA is priceless. [Store Envy]

Apparently, the designer of this swimsuit, Bad Aby Designs, ripped off another designer’s swimsuit — trademarked as the “Sharkini” — and is now in the process of changing the name of the suit. You can find the ORIGINAL Sharkini here.

This here is a $295 beach cover up from Haute Hippie. I imagine this sort of thing would look totally appropriate if you’re sunning yourself on a billionaire’s private yacht off the coast of Ibitttttha. But for the 99.9999 percent of the rest of us for whom that seems a distant prospect, this “beach cover-up” just looks like you’ve DIY-ed a hot air balloon into a muumuu.

Must Haves: 9 Pretty Plus-Size Bikinis

Earlier this year, blogger Gabi Fresh made waves when she collaborated with Swimsuits for All to launch the Fatkini. Inspired by the Harmony Korine movie “Spring Breakers,” Fresh’s collection is full of bold, bright color and fun styles. “I wanted to give [plus-size women] cuter things,” Fresh explained in an interview with The Daily Beast. “All I want for us is to have the same ability to go shopping like everyone else and have those options available.”

We loved her designs, and wanted to find a bunch more cool plus-size bikinis, but it proved a more difficult undertaking than we thought. Even go-to plus-size retailers seem to be shilling belly-covering tankinis in place of straight up bikinis. To me, the relative dearth of plus-size bikini options speaks to a larger notion — seemingly even prevalent in the plus sizde marketplace — that bigger women should cover up their bellies and be ashamed of the way their stomachs look. But plus-size women should have an equal opportunity to show off their curves in bikinis that fit and flatter them, too.

Thankfully, more and more plus-size clothiers are catching on. We found nine totally awesome plus-size bikinis that’ll look great on every beach.
