Here comes the sun ☀️
This week, we’re going all out summer mode—loading on the sunscreen, breaking out the sunnies, and sharing some hot swimwear finds from none other than Walmart!
As you probably already know, we shop Walmart on Wednesdays for high-end clothing at a low-budget price. And while we’ve found cute jeans, tops, and even dresses, this week we’re really pushing the envelope and checking out their swimwear.
And let me tell you, we were impressed! I wouldn’t think of Walmart as my first place to shop for a new bathing suit or cover up, but on top of their fun selection of swimwear, they also have a ton of other summer essentials.
For instance, these floppy straw hats! These are just radiating summer vibes, and they’re under $5! Even sweeter, you can stock up on multiple color options for yourself, or give a couple to friends and family by scoring a 3-pack for only $12.
And what would summer be without a cute pair of sunglasses? Instead of buying an expensive designer pair that you spend all your time worrying about damaging, you can get multiple colors and styles from the huge assortment at Walmart. Some even have polarized lenses! I went with a pair from Piranha because stylish sunnies under $16 is a win to me! 🕶️
Traveling back and forth between the beach or pool calls for an easy access backpack, and this adorable striped tote I found by No Boundaries is the perfect pack for my phone, keys, wallet, sunscreen, and more. There are tons of other colors, patterns, and styles by this brand as well.
Okay now on to swimwear. I have to say, Time and Tru does it again with their fashion-forward pieces! I found a couple of tankini tops that are too cute. I love the high neck and design of this one, so I couldn’t pass it up!
In the summer, I live in comfy shorts, so this Time and Tru breathable swimming pair easily found their way into my cart. These are great for both on and off the beach!
Oh, and I can’t forget about their massive bin of flip flops! These sandals come in an arrangement of bright, fun colors – and the best part? They’re just 98¢! Just when I thought that Dollar Tree had the lock on cheap sandals, Walmart beats them by a couple of pennies. 😆

Stetson joined me on this Walmart trip and found some affordable swimwear of his own to get his wardrobe ready for the hot weather.
In fact, Walmart has a crazy good selection of men’s swim trunks! The George brand offers tons of colors and fun tropical patterns, so it was harder to narrow it down to just a couple of pairs to take home.
Even sweeter, they have a great selection of plain tees in store for only $3.44, BUT if you shop the same t-shirts on Walmart’s website, you can score them for only a buck! Seriously! Stock up on multiple colors for the men in your life for just $1 per shirt.
I am LOVING the suit and coverup that Lina picked out this week. They’re a perfect representation of her personality—bright, vibrant, and so much fun!
“I loved these two pieces! The suit is super flattering and comfy as a black and white suit is my comfort zone! And the coverup is the perfect addition of a pop of color and pattern. So easy to wear.” – Lina
Bonus! Lina’s daughter’s look
Walmart is especially great when shopping swimwear for the kiddos! They grow so fast so paying under $10 for a cute suit before they grow out of it is a no-brainer. I mean, how cute is this girl’s two-piece?!
Swimwear pieces for girls
Our Hip2Save team member Emily is ready to hit the beach (though maybe a month too soon as the weather in her area isn’t quite warm enough yet 😆)! How pretty does she look?! I love it all!
“I didn’t think I would love the this No Boundaries suit as much as I do. But the cute knotted ties, ribbed fabric, and sage green color has me swooning over it! I’ll admit, the top was showing a bit more than I care to reveal, so I sized up, un-tied the knot, and re-tied it a bit tighter – and the fit is perfect! I love that the bottom ties are adjustable as well.
As for the coverup, I found it within the swimwear section, but online it’s actually advertised as a tunic top 😬Oh well! I think it works great as a light beach coverup, though it does have me wanting to pair it with a cami and leggings for an easy casual outfit.” – Emily
“At first, I had a really hard time finding a suit I liked on Walmart’s website, but I realized that I should have been checking out the Junior’s department online as well. They have so many trendy styles, colors, and patterns. Once I figured out where I should be looking, it was hard to pick just one. And sooo many pieces were under $9! 🤯” – Emily
