A great swimsuit does two things: It flatters your figure (when dry and when wet), and it stays put (no wardrobe malfunctions). Not every bathing suit boasts these qualities, but Victoria's Secret's The Forever One-Piece is pretty close to perfection — according to Rank & Style, which ranked it the best one-piece to shop for under $100.
Many people are under the (totally untrue) misconception that one-piece swimsuits are for "women of a certain age." In reality, women of any age should wear what makes them feel their best — bikini, one-piece, or otherwise. And, the Forever One-Piece's customer reviews reveal that this suit certainly makes women feel great: "the cut of the top screams sexy and confidence at the same time," exclaims one commenter. Another insists "the quality of the suit is outstanding." At just $78.50, the price is also worth praise.
Rank & Style has culled plenty more affordable beach essentials to start stocking up on — such as printed sundresses, Birkenstock-like sandals, and simple tees. We'll meet you at high tide.
