Cute & Affordable Bikinis Under $20! {Zaful Review & Tips}

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend, and are feeling inspired and motivated for the upcoming week!  Can you believe today is the first official day of spring, and also the international day of happiness!?  I love the transition into a new season, and spring is one of my favorites!  My desk is full of blooming white tulips (my favorite flower), and my entire space is clean and organized (for the most part!) thanks to my Spring Cleaning Checklist post!

I posted a few photos from our trip to the Bahamas on my Instagram (@tessa_noelle), and I couldn’t resist sharing my favorite swimsuits that I wore on vacation!  Each of these swimsuits are under $20, and the quality is incredible!! I purchased each swimsuit off of a site called Zaful, and I will definitely be purchasing more from that website in the future!  Since ordering swimsuits online can be nerve wracking, especially ordering from a website you may not have heard much about, I wanted to share a few tips at the end of this post to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible!  

Crisscross High Neck Bikini: Currently $11.99

This is by far my favorite swimsuit, it is very flattering and super cute!! The cross-detailing is adorable, and I love the unique pattern in both the top and bottom!  Top: size small – bottom: size small

Double Side Crossover Bikini Set: Currently $13.99

This swimsuit was actually pretty popular on our cruise, especially since a handful of women all had the exact same swimsuit in the exact same color (including myself)!!  The crossover straps are really cute, and the color looks great on everyone!  One thing to keep in mind; these bottoms are cut smaller than the other two bottoms!  Top: size small – bottoms: size small

High-Neck Leaf Print Bikini Set: Currently $16.49

I have been on the hunt for a high-neck palm leaf printed swimsuit, and it’s actually how I ended up shopping on Zaful to begin with!  I instantly fell in love with this bikini, especially the crossed strap detailing in the back!  Top: size small – bottom: size small


  • You must order the same size top and bottom, as that is the only option on the website.  I am wearing a size small in both the top and bottom of each swimsuit, and the sizing fit very well, however it may be difficult if you tend to wear a different size top or bottom!
  • Pay for rush shipping, it’s definitely worth it!  I ordered the swimsuits very last minute (my mistake!), and a member of the company worked with me and helped make sure my swimsuits arrived before we left! The swimsuits are such a great price, so I would definitely look into rush shipping so you can rock your swimsuits even sooner!  Plus since most items come from oversees, it will guarantee that your order will arrive in a timely fashion!

Where are some of your favorite places to buy swimwear?  Some of my favorite swimsuits are from Triangl and Midori, and I am definitely going to be wearing these three swimsuits throughout the spring and summer!  I hope you all have a beautiful Wednesday!

Love & Good Vibes

    Thank you so much for sharing, I absolutely love all three of these bathing suits (and you look really cute in them too!) I’m actually going on a cruise at the end of April, so I’ll have to check out the website you mentioned – never heard of it before. You’re saying the quality is good? I tend to be weary when the price is low as sometimes that reflects in the stitching job they do, so I’m happy to hear that these suits are made to last at a reasonable price 🙂

      Thank you so much Dina, I really appreciate your kind words!! The quality is amazing for the price, and the stitching, padding, and fabric is incredible in the three suits I purchased! I was weary as well at first, but I was very pleasantly surprised when they arrived! Enjoy your cruise!! <3
