Guide to Shopping for Fashionable and Inexpensive Swimsuits for Teens and Young Women

Looking for a new swimsuit for yourself or your teen? There is no need to spend $100 or more on a new swimsuit. Check out these five retailers who offer inexpensive and fashionable swimsuits for teens and young women.

Forever 21 - Cheap, cheap, cheap swimsuits for teens and young women

Forever 21 is a great store for the fashion forward young woman on a tight budget. Well, alas I am no longer in the demographic this store caters to; I could spend hours browsing their cute and unbelievable cheap fashions. Forever 21 shoppers have an array of adorable swimsuit separates to peruse with prices as low as $8.80, which means it is possible to put together an adorable two-piece swimsuit for less than $20. That is definitely worth getting excited over.

Some of the swimsuit styles that caught my eye were the "flirty brushstrokes triangle top ($10.80) with matching bikini bottom ($9.80). Also the yellow bandeau bikini top ($9.80) with a matching yellow ruffled bikini bottom ($8.80). There was also a zebra print monokini which featured multiple cut-outs and contrasting trim for a mere $19.80. It is definitely worth taking a look at the cute, trendy and inexpensive swim suits at Forever 21.

Target - Wide selection of inexpensive swimsuits for women and teens

Target has an incredibly large selection of mix and match swimwear for women and teens. Separates start at just $17.99, which means a fashion savvy woman can put together a cute swimsuit for less than $40. Favorites for me included the black and white striped halter bikini by Mossimo. The top and bottom were $17.99 each. Mossimo also has a twist "tubini" in assorted styles and colors for $19.99 for the woman wanting a little more coverage in a swimsuit.

Delias - Featuring the fashionable "Roxy" brand swimsuit for teens

Delias has a wonderful line of swimwear geared definitely to teen girls. The mix and match swimwear line has prices for swimwear separates beginning at just $19.99. I think the sunny yellow ruched bandeau and banded ruffle hipster is just adorable. Both pieces are sold at $24.50 a piece. Delias also carries a full selection of the trendy "Roxy" brand swimwear. The "Roxy" brand separates are priced around $32 a piece.

H M; - Trendy and Cheap Swedish Swim Wear

You need to visit H M;'s Swedish or Norwegian site in order to order their swimwear online. H M; swimwear is even less expensive than Target. When I lived in Europe H M; was one of my favorite places to shop. This Swedish retailer has all the latest trends at super low prices. My favorite swimsuit style is the mint green jeweled bandeau top with matching bikini hipster. The suit is priced in Swedish or Norwegian Kroner, but when translated to American prices run around $35.

American Eagle - Classic American bikinis moderately priced

American Eagle offers a pretty large selection of swimwear separates geared towards teens and young women. They have some incredibly cute styles. Most swimsuit separates are priced at $24.50. My favorite bikini style is the AG Glamour Ruffle Underwire Bikini, which is available in a soft purple and white polka dot with matching ruffle bikini bottom. Both swimwear separates are priced at $24.50. American Eagle also offers an assortment of tankinis. Most pieces are also priced at $24.50.

Well it is possible to spend well over a hundred dollars on a designer swimsuit, it really isn't necessary. Head to one of these five stores for affordable and fashionable swimsuits for teens and young women.
