Splashing around in a nice and refreshing pool? Fun. Shopping for a new bathing suit? Not so much. To make it painless, the Cut is devoting this week to finding you the perfect swimsuit.
When it comes to shopping for a new bathing suit, some people are die-hard bikini lovers and others are solely devoted to one-pieces. If you fall into the latter category, there’s no better time to shop for one than now. The style has had a resurgence in popularity in the last few years — see J.Crew’s relaunch of their signature low-back suit or the Baywatch reboot that launched countless red look-alikes as proof. And even if those styles aren’t your speed, there are countless designers making cool, stylish options in every shade of the rainbow. Whether you want a simple black bandeau or prefer a racy cobalt number with cutouts, you can find it for $100 or less. Check out some of our favorites below.
