Some of you may have hit the beach already, but today is the official first day of summer (hence the heat wave in Nyack, NY) and I will not have my PITNBrs out there looking ratchet… There. I finally did it. I used the word ‘ratchet’ in a sentence. It feels about as bad as I thought it would. Non-ratchet swimsuits from Asos and American Apparel inside. Gotta go wash out my mouth.
Shouts out to all of our readers in Canada, Australia, and the U.K. Asos and American Apparel ship to all ya’ll, which is why I chose their stores as my go-tos for this post. Plus their stuff is cute. Below, peep 30 swimsuits for under $50. Ok, like, two of them are $53 or something but you’ll know which ones those are. They’ll have three dollar bill signs next to them: $$$
Lol, just kidding. Now that would be ratchet (oh no! this word is growing on me!). But seriously, check these out. And all of you who are insane enough to be pregnant in the summer (kinda like I was… twice), I didn’t forget you. Peep the top of page three ;)
One final thing. All swimsuits labeled “MINE” are, well, mine. Their designs speak to me on a physical and emotional level, thus I have included them or viewing purposes only. If I catch any one of you rocking these on Venice Beach, Miami Beach, or Cape Cod it will be beyond awkward.
Enjoy! And feel free to declare your “MINE”s in the comments.
