You’ve been working out and eating right for the last few months (or maybe you haven’t—lucky you!). Now, it’s time to bare it all in style. Peruse this carefully-selected collection of adorable, affordable bikinis under $50, and cut your shopping time—and angst!—in half. –Chelsea Karnash

Oasis Fleur Frill Bandeau Bikini – ON SALE, $31.48
www.us.asos.com

A flattering cut and feminine ruffles put this turquoise floral bikini at the top of the list.

Gingham-Skirted Halter Bikini – ON SALE, $35
www.oldnavy.com

The classic gingham print brings to mind summer picnics on the beach, and the skirt adds a little femininity to an otherwise simple suit.

Belle-knot Front Paisley Bikini—ON SALE, $41
www.victoriassecret.com

The peachy color is pretty, and the bright blue bow is a nice touch. This bandeau is dainty but not too precious.

Tie-dye Abbie Triangle Top Bikini—ON SALE, $48.98
www.victoriassecret.com

With removable padding, a sprinkling of sequins and a cheerful floral print, this bikini embodies everything Victoria’s Secret does best.

H&M Bikini–$9.90, only available in stores
www.hm.com

That’s no typo—this two-piece is seriously under 10 bucks! And while the cut-out is very of-the-moment, the paisley print is timeless.

Mossimo Mix & Match 2-Piece Yellow Swimsuit — $35.98
www.target.com

A simple, classic style in a bold shade. This sunny suit is best with a (spray) tan.

Juniors Handkerchief Bandeau Swimsuit — $29.98
www.target.com

Okay, it’s a juniors bikini, so go up a size. But how cool is the top?! I also love that the pattern is only on the bottoms, and that it also comes in purple (if pink’s not your thing).

2-Piece Large Print Bandeau Swimsuit — $47.99
www.target.com

This bikini is classy, understated and offers a little more coverage than some of the other picks on this list—perfect for those looking for something eye-catching but not attention-grabbing.

Neon Star Bikini—ON SALE, $26
www.us.missselfridge.com

Stars, ruffles and a touch of bright pink keep a classic black bandeau from becoming boring.

Solid Neon Bow Bikini—ON SALE, $26
www.us.missselfridge.com

It’s neon chartreuse; how could you pass it up!? Or maybe that’s just me. PS – The knot detail on the back of the bottoms is so cute!
