July 4th has come and gone, meaning that sadly, yes, summer is basically half over.  Chances are you’ve been rocking your swimsuits quite a bit already, but in case you’ve waited for mid-summer sales (you know, since back-to-school apparel will be making its debut any day now), here are a few places to find the perfect banging bikini without breaking the bank.

  1. Aeropostale

With the sale prices for separates at about $10 each, Aero is very affordable. Its range of styles, patterns, and colors make it hard for anyone to pass up its hot new bikinis. If for some reason you miss Aero’s awesome sale prices, the original prices for its swimsuits aren’t too bad either. The most expensive suit will ever buy from Aero is only $24.50. Aeropostale makes it easy to find a swimsuit you’ll love by not stealing all your money.

  • JC Penney

 

Believe it or not, JC Penney has great swimsuits too. JCP starts its bikini and tankini separates at only $20. If you’re the more conservative type, the one piece suits start at about $46. If these prices still don’t scream “good deal” to you, keep in mind that JCP usually has awesome sales and coupons that will cut the price in half – if not more. Last season I got a bikini at JCP and because of the great sale price for its separates set at $4.99 and my $10 off coupon, I walked out of the store only paying the sales tax. Cha-ching!

JC Penney’s makes it easy to save with its continuous sales and coupons.

  • Forever 21 and H&M

 

If you want something extremely affordable, these two fast fashion stores are the way to go. The suits are extremely inexpensive. Now I do want to warn you, since these are fast fashion stores, the suits aren’t the best quality but if you don’t mind that, the styles and prices are hard to beat. The two stores both advertise their bikini separates as low as $12.99 but with their constant sales, you can find them even cheaper.

Many retailers offer a large range of sizes to accommodate all consumers.

  • Aerie

 

With practically every kind of style, Aerie is the perfect place to go to find a great swimsuit. The suits are priced fairly reasonably starting at $36.95 for separates and $49.95 for a one-piece. Also, Aerie.com offers free shipping and returns to make it easier for you to find that perfect new swimsuit.

  • Target

 

Let’s face it, Target is great for practically everything, but its swimsuits are amazing. Target’s range of colors and styles make its swimsuits very hard to pass up. The store’s bikini and tankini separates range from $12.99 to $39.99 and the one-piece suits range from $29.99 to $49.99. Target also makes suits that are built to last more than one season, which is phenomenal. I personally have had a suit from Target for the past three years and no one can tell I only paid $18 for it.

If you’re sick of spending too much money on overpriced swimsuits the solution is easy. Just check out one of these great stores and it should save you bundle on your next banging bikini.
