Target Bathing Suits 2016 Shopping Guide

I have had so many requests for this seasons Target bathing suits shopping guide after I wrote one for last year.  I have to tell you, I don’t know how Target gets away with it every year.  They have styles that are exact dupes to the high end pieces on Shopbop and Nordstrom right now.  For the prices and the fact Target is running a bathing suit buy one get one half off sale, this couldn’t have come at a better time right?  I have some Target bathing suits from 3 seasons ago that are still going strong.  Just make sure to hand wash and hang dry, they will hold up!  Did you know that ViX has a line with Target this year?  I couldn’t believe it either.  Get it before they sell out online!

I will also say two things before we get started.  One, I spent hours online for you finding all the best suits.  I went in store to try them on and a lot of them are online styles only.  Thank goodness for free shipping right?  Two, I know this seems early to be talking about bathing suits but the good ones sell out early and restocking seems to take forever.  Even as I was writing this, sizes were disappearing. So scoop them up now, you can always return in store for no big deal right?  It’s embarrassing how many of these I ordered online but I wanted to give you guys the full run down!  You ready?  Here are my favorites!

Target Bathing Suits Shopping Guide. The complete Target bathing suit shopping guide that you will need.


The scalloped tops and bottoms are trending this season, in love with these two colors here and here.  Find the tops here and strapless here.  They seriously look just like this pair from SHOPBOP which go for $136 just for the bottoms!  The tribal print Mara Hoffman dupes are back again love this top and these bottoms.  Get this L Space wrap top for a fraction of the price here.  I have these exact leopard bottoms, they fit perfectly and go with everything!  I got them in a size medium because they are Junior sizing.  In love with this snakeskin ViX set.  This strappy back one I wore all last year, it sold out quickly get it while it’s back in stock!  I just added this red one to my cart and can’t wait to get it!  In love with this floral midi top.  This neon set looks just like the cult classic Triangl pieces but for way more affordable.  Mesh, crochet, and multiple straps are taking center stage.  Just think more pool parties and less laying out, not the best for tan lines but look so fab on!

    I wish I could wear Target swimsuits! They’re so affordable and cute, I just require more support and a larger cup size than what’s offered. :P

  8. Lindsay says:

    You are awesome for doing such thorough research! Bathing suit season is something I’m not looking forward to. Pre-baby, I was very confident in my bikini body, but now? Not so much. I want to try out the higher waisted bottom; I think that would be a good one for me. I do love Target bathing suits!!

  9. Samantha says:

  12. I was at Target on Friday and saw some pretty fab looking bathing suits. That one with the tassels in your photo… YES. I seriously only have ONE bathing suit that I only wear on vacations haha. Clearly I need to go back to Target and get another one haha. Hope that you had a fab weekend too!! :-)

  13. Christina says:

    I always look at the Target bathing suits and love them.. but once I get them on, they never look right. Maybe I’ll try again this year!

    Target always has the cutest bathing suits!! Just walking past that section of the store makes me so excited for summer!

  18. Ashley Moody says:

    I have been WAITING for this post!!! Now all we need is summer!!! Love you!!!

  19. Kaitlin says:

    YAY! Target does always have the best swim suits and you can buy 10 for the price of some of the nice ones. I love the strappy front ones but the tan lines would be brutal … I guess that’s more motivation not to bake in the sun!? :)

  20. Ohhhh that red one with the crazy neckline – LOVE that one! Wouldn’t you know, I’m in the market for a new suit since I haven’t bought one in almost three years! And it’s already mid 70’s here so def not too early to be talking suits!

  21. Perfect Post for a Tropical Honeymoon!! xoxo

  22. marie says:

    Target does have the best bathing suits. I got one last year and love it.

  23. Now im so bummed that Target pulled out of Canada!! These bathing suits look so great

  24. Target has been killin’ it in the bathing suit department the past few seasons, and I’ve been saying Victorias Secret who? I’m loving all the scalloped edges this year <3

  25. Target does it again! I might have to pay a little visit there this weekend. Bathing suits are tricky purchasing online but I’m digging the strappy bikinis and the scalloped ones too. Nice finds!

  26. Loving all of these! I have the python one in my cart now, jsut trying to decide what size to get. I got those dolce vita shiny casual flats you were snapping this weekend, i am in love!

  27. I almost never think about Target when bikini shopping and I don’t know why – you’re right, they always have such on trend pieces that are so affordable. I’m loving the high neck styles that are coming out this year. If I knew 100% what my size was I’d totally order some for the summer already – but I’ll have to wait until we get home so I can try them on!


  28. Kayla MKOY says:

    I am obsessed with the scalloped one !! Target rocks! Thanks for doing all the research so we don’t have to! ;)

  29. Nadine says:

    That striped komono is so cute!!!! Love all of your selections but I steer clear of the bikinis. No one wants to see that haha. I scooped up a wonderful navy and while striped tankini from Target three or four years ago and it is still my favorite every season and has held up wonderfully. No need to spend lots of money on swimsuits when we have Target!

  30. Nikki says:

    I am loving all of Target’s bikinis this season! I already picked up one, but I may need to scoop up some more especially with the buy one get one 50% off, can’t beat it!!

  31. Karly says:

    So many great suits this year! Loving all the scallops. Thanks for another great guide!

  32. How does Target continue to do it all the time? All of their clothes and bathing suits are always so cute, and are great dupes at half the price! I’m especially loving all of the scalloped bathing suits! So cute!

  33. kristen says:

    i do not need any more bathing suits, i do not need any more bathing suits, I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE. but sale? okay. i need some.

  34. Oh goodness. I’m hoping I’ll be bathing suit ready by this summer. Baby needs to get out soon so I can start working on my bikini body! Love Target’s suits this year. They have some fab ones.

  35. Julie Joy says:

    I’ve always loved Target swim apparel! It’s affordable and oh so cute! And interchangeable! But… since I don’t think I’ll be wearing a bikini this year I think I’ll just keep dreaming! ;)

  36. Target is seriously the best for finding swimsuits! love this post – so helpful!

    I loveeee the scalloped styles. I’ve been eyeing a Marysia suit but damn! they’re expensive. I love these from Target too, especially the pink!

  39. Owen Davis says:

    I literally just bought 2 new bathing suits from Target yesterday. They are KILLING IT this year! And I totally agree with you about buying them early… the good ones sell out fast!

  40. Laura says:

    I saw their line the other day and go so excited…spring/summer is almost here!!! Their swim line is always amazing!


  41. Christina says:

    I love all the scallop tops this year! And I was shocked to see on the site how many are only online since I’m a big tryer oner – oh well, like you said – there are always returns!

  42. Target is always so on point with their swimwear! I love their “Mara” inspired pieces and my favorite suits are from there! I even like some of them better than the real deal because I don’t worry about them at all! And you are right, size up on the bottoms for sure! Learned that the hard way!


  43. I’m loving the high waisted bikini bottoms . . . maybe someone who has popped out a few kids can wear this style!

  44. Ugg I haven’t even begun thinking about swimwear. haha. Where are you Spring?!

  45. Target is always my first stop for swimsuits!! I want so many of these – all of the scalloped pieces and the entire ViX line are amazing. Come on summer!

    I LOVE the scalloped look. Target is always a great go to–can’t beat their prices, and YES they hold up year after year. Thanks for breaking it all down–I’m loving your picks.

  48. Amanda says:

    It’s a good thing I haven’t been to Target in a while, I’d be buying all of the bathing suits! These are all so cute!

  49. The scallops and tassels are definitely my favorites this season! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
