The summer heat is raging. It’s been well into the 90s for weeks now and we’ve definitely been feeling the heat in our old house. B and I have been joking about putting a pool in instead of some other things we’ve got going on but we continue to hold out. We’ve been fortunate enough to spend some time out on the boat which is almost better than a pool if you ask me.
All this summer heat and joking about pools got me thinking about bathing suits. It’s hard to find bathing suits that cover enough while still looking cute that are also comfortable and quality. My curves also mean finding suits that fit everywhere is difficult too.
A couple years ago when we started planning multiple trips to DE with the boat each summer, I knew it was time to find some bathing suits that could hold up to more than just sunbathing on the beach or around a pool. I needed suits that were comfortable, covered enough that I wasn’t hanging out everywhere and that held up to being fairly active on the boat.
Well today I’m sharing a few of my favorite (and affordable) bathing suits that I found on Amazon; ones I actually wear and a few I have my eye on. Here’s my five friday favorites:

Option 1: Navy Blue Handkerchief print
True to size. Because I have a larger chest and bum, I ordered one size larger than I’d normally wear and I didn’t need to.
Option 2: Gray and Pink Two Piece Tankini:
Like the navy blue one, I sized up one and I would not have needed to. Take note that this suit is sold as separates where the others are sold together.
Option 3: Tankinki – my favorite
This affordable bathing suit is my favorite and is definitely true to size. I like it because I can throw on a pair of shorts with it and feel comfortable running errands in it and not necessarily look like I’m wearing a bathing suit. I get compliments when I wear it all the time and people are shocked that it was less than $40 for both pieces.
Options 4 and 5: Two options I have my eye on:
Similar to the first two, these are sold as the full suit. The styles are similar so if I try either of these, I will order my usual size instead of sizing up.
Have you found any great bathing suits this summer on Amazon that you love?
