Last month when Hilary Duff, mom of 3-year-old Luca, posted this photo to Instagram, we weren’t just envious of her killer abs, but her adorable scalloped swimsuit. And it turns out we’re not the only ones.
Celebrity moms like Rachel Bilson and Busy Phillips have been rocking the scalloped bikini trend ever since last summer, and it doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon. We recently saw Gwyneth Paltrow sporting one on vacation, and we’re just waiting for more beach selfies to start popping up. So who’s behind these scalloped creations?
Marysia — a luxury swimwear line.
While we love the range of styles this brand has to offer — from one-piece suits to bandeau tops and high-waisted bottoms — it’s a bit out of our price range, with suits ranging from $138 per piece to over $300. Yikes!
Never one to miss out on a trend, we went on a hunt to find similar scalloped swimsuits that were more on our budget. And oh, did we find some good deals. Our greatest steal was a $14 one-piece suit from Anne Taylor LOFT. Yes, you read that right.
See below for nine budget-friendly scalloped swimsuits, and feel good knowing you’re rocking the same trend as the Goopster for a quarter of the price. (We may or may not be gloating.)
