Save vs. Splurge : Swim Edition

I don’t know about you but after the holidays and a little tiny bit of the cold weather we get in Orlando, I am ready for sun and sand ASAP. When it comes to swim wear, there is nothing that gives me more anxiety, especially after having the twins. Finding something that I am comfortable in as well as giving me the ability to chase after three little ones, is important when you live in Florida or when you like to vacation. So I am dedicating this post to some of the best suits I have found and will leave it up to you if you want to save or splurge on some of your favorites. I LOVE to know what you all decide on – so please tag me at @christin.lewis or message me here.

Color Block Cut Out One Shoulder // Summersalt Color Block One Shoulder

I have been wanting a Summersalt suit BADLY – but before I invested in one, I found another similar look on Amazon. I loved it and now I want more colors. I decided on the cut out that was $18 vs. $95 – Cannot beat it!!

Amazon Tie Front // L*Space Belted

This L*Space suit was really popular last season and is not available anymore- but I found one similar and SO flippin reasonable. Amazon find for $13 -BOOM!

Paisley Pattern Strapless // Tory Burch Paisley

I have been drooling over this Tory Burch swimmie but there is no way I could ever justify the price- BUT I found this VERY beautiful look alike on Amazon- AGAIN! $20 vs $258

SheIn Front tie cutout black // Multi Front tie Suit

I love a good one piece with small cut out – I found this Becca dupe for only $8 – WHAT! Definitely worth a try since it looks so very similar in styles.

Target White Ruffle Plunge Back // Shop Bop-White Ruffle High Neck

I have been eyeing this Target swimmie since last year and I really want to add to cart soon. Look how similar it is to this Shop Bop ruffle style- I cannot get over the quality and style similarities –$30 vs. over $200. Cannot beat that!

Polka Dot Belted Swim // Solid&Striped Belted Swim

Last year – I became a big fan of belted one pieces. It just gives a one piece a little more style depending on which one you get of course. Check out this price difference ($27 vs. $100)


Time for some MAJOR Dupe finds ladies. I will have to say, I am a bit sad I did not find these sooner. I have two of the Tularosa suits but I did get the Amazon vs. Becca Ruffle last year and it is the best suit I own.

High Waist Pom Bikini Dupe // Tularosa Nina

I have this Nina bikini in two colors and I love it – but seeing other bloggers post in the Amazon dupe – it is a must try because it is the same quality and look. This set on Amazon is $10 for the entire suit compared to $80 each piece for Tularosa. WORTH a try for sure!

High Waist Scallop Bikini // Marysia Santa Barbara Bikini

I have yet to try this dupe but I have heard that the scallops on the Amazon swimmie do not lay as flat as people would prefer. I think this suit is definitely worth a try considering Marysia is such a high price point for such a simple look.

Cheetah Pom Dupe // Tularosa Cheetah Thessy Bikini

Like I said about the first Tularosa dupe – Their suits are amazing and why I own multiple, but if you are looking for the same look at a different price point, the Amazon dupes for this suit are EXACT! Definitely worth the $10 vs. $80 each piece. If you wanted to splurge for this suit, I also think it is not a mistake. A great quality brand, that I love!

Amazon Front Plunge Ruffle Suit // Becca Plunge Swim

So THIS Amazon find is the suit you have to purchase. I own both of these suits. I have the Becca swim in light purple and I own the Amazon version is green, black, yellow and floral. It is so flattering and I feel like I can be somewhat stylish in a one piece with this one. I love love love it! Check out the back of the swimmie too. Its GREAT! I promise.
