Budget-Friendly Swimwear For Your Next Cruise Vacation

As an avid cruiser and content creator, I am always trying to find the best swimwear that will not only look great in our posts, but will also hold up to all of our fun adventures! I have found that it has been a bit challenging to find suits that have both of those qualities and won’t break the bank. But alas, I have I think I have done it!

A lot of people ask me where I get my bikinis, so I hope this article is helpful and you have some luck finding the perfect pieces for your next cruise vacation! I have also linked all of the swimwear I could directly to their sites for easy finding.


What I like the most about Cupshe, is that the great majority of their swimwear is under $30, which is perfect for wanting a different piece for every port we visit! Every swimsuit I have purchased (about 5-6 now) has fit exceptionally well and is modest enough for me to feel very comfortable (and appropriate) in public!

Cupshe also does a great job at offering a variety of swimwear for every body type! There are some completely adorable high-waist bikinis as well as one-piece suits. So if a standard bikini isn’t your jam, have no fear! Cupshe has you covered! (Pun intended ;) )

I would like to note that if you are purchasing any bikini, that you do have to order both top and bottom in the same since they are sold in sets. I haven’t found this to be a problem though, as it usually is with other brands. I would just encourage you to check the sizing chart and order accordingly. They are pretty great with returns, so don’t stress if you need to exchange it for another size.


TBH, I was a little skeptical of shopping with Zaful. Their prices seemed too good to be true. But I couldn’t resist this pineapple bandeau bikini! You do need a little patience and bit of wiggle room when shopping with Zaful, because it could take about 3-4 weeks before you receive your order. The bottoms on these are a bit more cheeky than the others that I purchased with Cupshe, but I was expecting that. The fit is great and the price was right!

The reason I ordered anything from Zaful in the first place was because of this beautiful ivory lace cover up. I was looking for something flow and classy to wear over my bathing suits and this just hit the spot. The best part? It was only $25.


If you know me at all, you know that I shop at Target pretty frequently. It is not uncommon for me to drive over on a random Tuesday to “browse” and come back home with a handful of things I really didn’t need. With most layouts having the swimwear right at the entrance, it is hard for me not to stop and take a look at the new arrivals. If you are familiar with Target’s swimwear, you know that they do sell separates, and each will cost anywhere from $14-30/piece, with a good majority being in the $15-20 range. I like being able to mix and match pieces, so I usually try to find a cool color scheme and find fun patterns or a neat design to pair.
