splurge vs. save | swim edition

Wednesday, May 3, 2017


If there is one type of shopping that gives me anxiety, it's shopping for swimwear... even now, I get freaked out about what's going to be showing when I'm in the pool, lake, or beach with my girls. As a woman, I want to look "cute" in my swimwear, but as a mom, I want it to be functional so I can play/swim/etc and not have to worry about what could potentially get exposed [I know you KNOW what I am talking about]. Since I've got all things beach on the brain, I'm directing this weeks' posts to everything summer and swim related.



Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite swimwear brands and retailers and showing you some save versus splurge options... ones everyone will love and will make you feel good about being out in the sun this summer!





Still on the hunt for the perfect swimwear???

  7. I got a suit just like that scallop cut-out one from Cupshe last year and I think it was less than $20?! It is super flattering and, surprisingly, well made.

  12. I love the suits you featured here! The steals look nearly identical to the splurges. I featured my favorite bathing picks from cheap online retailer Cupshe on my blog recently as well.
