It is seriously summertime with this heatwave and we’re over here dreaming of the pool, the beach, the lake…any body of water that will cool us down, really. And everyone knows a day of swimming and sunning calls for a cute swimsuit! Target has tons of adorable and affordable bathing suits in lots of different styles! Faith hit the store to try on a few…all pieces are true to size – she’s wearing a small! See her Target swimwear roundup below.
This was my absolute favorite bathing suit! I’ve never really been a fan of one-pieces but this one is just darling! The fit is flattering for all body types and the side cutout with the ribbon on the shoulder gives this such a flirty vibe. Definitely a winner in my book!
I loved this bikini top – the keyhole cutout gives it a little extra flair and the back has a crisscross tie that makes it easy to tighten and adjust! I like the look of this ruffled bottom but it is definitely teeeeeny…I think it’s better for style than function. I’d be afraid of giving everyone a show if I was swimming in it.
This leopard-print bikini gives a more full-coverage look. The top is “sports bra” style and has a built-in shelf bra so everything feels really supported and secure. The high-waisted bottom also tucks away the tummy! And who doesn’t love a good animal print?!
When I tried this suit on I didn’t necessarily love it – I’m not sure why – but looking back, I actually like it more than I thought! The skirt part on the bottom has an adjustable tie so it can sit higher up on your tummy or lower around your waist, and the intricate details on the top bring some style to an otherwise basic piece. This look is perfect for a bride-to-be during her bachelorette party or even on a beach honeymoon!
Another one-piece that I really loved! The plunge v-neck and low back make this style sexier, but otherwise it’s a pretty full-coverage suit! The top part does feel a little small, so if you have a larger chest it might be a struggle to keep the girls locked and loaded.
I really loved this dark green bikini. The color and fit both made me feel like I could rock this anywhere and feel great!! The crisscross banded top and side ties on the bottom add a touch of chic to a classic style.
This light green bikini gives me retro vibes with the ruffled bralette top and the high-waisted bottoms! I love the lace-up details on the bottom. The top was a bit big on me, but this is definitely a great suit for someone who is larger on top!
Okay – this nude bikini gives me mixed feelings. I want to like the style of the top but it kind of squished everything down and took away some of my (very small) curves. I do really like the ruching detail, and you can’t see it in the photo but the straps tie at the shoulder to give pretty bows! The bottom is a classic tie bottom which is always a solid choice. Overall, I think the color washes me out (time to grab some self-tanner) but I think this could look really cute on someone with a nice summer tan.
Out of all the bathing suits I tried on, this one-piece was my least favorite. There’s nothing particularly wrong with it, it’s just a lot of pattern for me, and after finding the suit online, I realized I tied the top incorrectly…whoops. It could technically be worn either way but the way I’m wearing it, it felt too small towards the middle of my chest but left gaps in the fabric closer to my underarms. I do think it’s a unique silhouette though, and if you love all things floral you’d probably like this!
And another one that took me out of my comfort zone! I actually don’t hate the look of this one, however the top was just a tad large. I really like the underwire with the keyhole cutout though, and even though the bottom is low-rise, it felt very comfortable on. I think this one is a fun look for a tropical vacation!
