I know that summer vacation is coming to an end for most people and fall fashion is on the brain, but here in Las Vegas we still have a few more months of summer weather left. That’s why I felt like now would be a good time to talk about bathing suits. Unlike most people who typically buy bathing suits early in the season, I like to wait until August to do my bathing suit shopping. You can usually find some really great prices on bathing suits in late summer.
This summer, I spent a lot of time looking for the right bathing suit, for the right price. I wanted to find something different this summer that was a little more conservative than my other suits. I only own 2 piece bikini’s, but now that I’m a mom, I wanted to find something that was a little more practical. I browsed all my favorite stores this summer, looking for a one-piece that I could easily wear while swimming with Jack, but also wouldn’t make me look like an old lady, but I could not find anything.
After no luck in the stores, I decided I had to look online. I don’t shop online very often, but sometimes it can be very convenient for a working mom. After searching for lots of online stores, I ended up going with Amazon. I always underestimate shopping on Amazon for clothes. We buy a lot of things from Amazon, but I always forget that you can buy almost anything there, including bathing suits. I found that Amazon had the best selection and the best prices.
I ended up buying2 bathing suits for under $30 for both. Today, I’m focusing on this black scalloped halter one-piece bathing suit. (I’ll save the other bathing suit for a later post.) This suit was everything I was looking for in a one-piece. It’s conservative, yet youthful. I love the scallop look and I went with black because it’s always a safe color choice. I like how this bathing suit has a high neckline because that was a problem I was running into with my other bathing suits. Jack was always pulling at my top.
So far I’m happy with my purchase. It had been so long since I last wore a one-piece, that I forgot how much I liked them. Now I feel like I’m all ready to enjoy the rest of our pool season!
If you’re looking for a new mom-friendly bathing suit, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, I’ve rounded up 12 great bathing suits for you. All of them are under $30! I wish that I could buy them all!

What darling suits! It's so hard to find good "mom suits" that are actually cute. These look like they would pass the help-a-kid-without-accidentally-flashing-anyone test and are so pretty! I'll have to check them out!
That suit looks great on you! I really like the hat too!

Oh my goodness, I love that suit! The scalloped edge is so pretty and it's so flattering!
Bathing suit shopping is always so tricky. I always go for a bit more conservative look (I've had too many suits that liked to pop off because I get pretty active in the pool lol), so I tend to go for tankinis. These one pieces look great, though!

It looks great! I love the scalloped neckline and black is such a timeless color for a suit!
So many fun suits! Yours is darling. I wish I could find a great one piece but I have a long torso and usually the only ones that come longer are not as cute, haha.
I agree! The suits that I found in the stores were either too old lady or too skimpy. I was happy to find something in between. 🙂
Thank you! I found the hat in the dollar section at Target in the spring.
Thank you! I love the scalloped look.
Tankinis are nice, because you can mix and match them. The other bathing suit I bought was a high waisted suit. I like that option too!
Thank you! I feel like you can never go wrong with black.
Thanks! I could see that being a problem when shopping for one pieces.
