Believe it or not, in about two weeks stores will begin to clear out their hot weather goods to make room for fall clothes (insert gif for Psycho shower scream). This means that if you haven’t finished shopping for summer essentials, most importantly swimsuits, now is the time to get it done. Swimsuits get their reputation of being difficult for a reason: There are so many choices it can be overwhelming. Should you go with a one-piece or a bikini? Pattern or solid? Trendy or classic? It’s tough to figure out which swimsuit is the one that will not only be comfortable but will make you feel the most confident in your body. On top of all that, many come with a hefty price tag.

We solved the last issue you for you by finding eight affordable (all under $60, most under $50) bathing suits and bikinis. So if you are still in need of a swimsuit, or maybe just want a few more options to bring on your beach vacay in August, check out these inexpensive, on-trend options.

1 Go Graphic

Old Navy

Serving a bit of the Baywatch babe feel, this suit’s golden yellow tone invites the sun to shine on you (after you SPF-protect, of course).

2 A Sweet Set

Shein

Embrace the retro look with polka dots, a high-waisted bottom, and tie shoulder straps. Top it off with a straw hat and fun shades.

3 Belt It

Asos

Not only is this plunging neckline H-O-T, but the printed belt gives this black one-piece a bit more interest.

4 Surfer Girl

Forever21

Go ahead, be active. No matter what you get up to—wave boarding, laps, volleyball—this color-blocked neoprene set will stay put.

5 Chill Vibes

Topshop

The best of both worlds. The lace-up sides add a sexy spin on this modest front tie-dye one piece.

6 Asymmetrical Neon

Lulus

Super bright and super sporty, get noticed with this one shoulder strap and high cut leg opening bikini. It is totally ’80s in the best possible way.

7 Scenic Pattern

H&M
$49.98 for set H&M SHOP IT Opens a new window

No need to be in Greece to get that Grecian feel. This toile pattern triangle top and bottom look way more than 50 bucks.

8 Candy Striped

Target

Trying to transition out of solids and into patterns? Start with stripes. They are simple, less busy, and vertical lines are super flattering.
