If you’d prefer to invest in an actual vacation rather than in a big-bucks designer swimsuit, check out these beauties—which look a whole lot more expensive than they are. Fashion plus savings? You betcha
Gray is a chic alternative to black and looks great on all skin tones. The cutouts add high-end detailing. Up to XL.
The extra fabric for the soft folds on this suit makes it look luxe; the strappy back adds rear appeal. Up to XL.
Animal print is a classic, and this tiny motif is super flattering. The ruched panel creates an hourglass shape. Up to size 16.
With a giant asymmetrical cutout and a skinny halter strap, this looks like a designer suit but goes for a fraction of the price.
Two layers in one: A striped overlay (alternating black and sheer) makes this tank a standout. Up to size 16.
There’s an old-Hollywood vibe to this full-bottomed bikini, in an easy-to-wear almost-animal print. Up to XL.
If “Go bold or go home” is your mantra, wear this. The print’s clarity is usually reserved for more expensive suits.
$25; hm.com for stores
The taupe is a winning color, but the richness is in the details: hip cinchers, halter ties, an accent ring. Up to XL.
