5 swimsuits under $25

Summer is alllllmost here which means lazy pool days (or not so lazy if you have 2 little boys) and lots of sunshine. I’ve rounded up 5 of my very favorite swimsuits and chatted about each below, in case you’re needing one or just have a growing collection like myself. :) These are actually all under $20 except for one that’s $22, and the quality is excellent on each for the price. They’re also all available on Amazon Prime so they can be to your doorstep in 2 days. Anyone else spoiled to this, or just me?

This swimsuit has been a recent favorite that’s so well made, I can’t believe it’s just $18. It’s lined and padded, and runs TTS. If you’re big up top, it doesn’t offer a ton of support. I think this one is perfect for smaller chested girls or days you want to sunbathe and not be super active in the water.

Under $20 and the BEST mom suit I’ve ever found. There are tons of “mom suits” out there, but few that are actually trendy and not too matronly looking. This one has complete “butt coverage” (not my favorite term but important to note!) and the neck strap comes off if you prefer a strapless look. I leave the strap on for support and love this suit for swimming with my boys. Runs a little big- size down if you’re in between sizes. Is so cute with a white cover-up like this one!

Another under $20 swimsuit that comes in 6 colors (love the green!) and is really well-made. If you’re on the bustier side, I’d definitely size up one size as the top doesn’t provide a ton of coverage. I’m in a size small for reference. How cute would this be for a bride on her honeymoon?!

Chances are you’ve seen me share this suit a ton but I can’t help it- it’s an all-time favorite and is now under $20! It comes in 10 colors (obsessed with the pink) and runs small; size up one size. I’m wearing medium for reference.

When it comes to comfort, I don’t think any suit can top this ruffle shoulder number. It’s lined, padded, and just overall extremely comfortable. It’s also flattering with the pattern of the stripes and high cut. Because of the cut, I’d recommend sizing up if you have a longer torso. I’m wearing a size medium for reference.

Hope all of you mamas had a special Mother’s Day! I had the best one yet; my boys spoiled me and we spent almost 4 hours at the pool (per Bear’s request and I wasn’t opposed). Boone was the cutest baby shark that hated the water and just wanted to do laps around the pool rather than in it. So thankful I get to be their mama.

splashway getaway

Several weeks ago, my parents came in town for my birthday and post-celebrations, we took a little road-trip to what is now our new favorite waterpark. Splashway exceeded all of our expectations and we're already talking about next year's trip! Even from our neck of the woods north of Houston, the drive was under 2 hours and totally worth it. Bear had the time of his life and my parents and I couldn't believe how brave he was- he wanted to do every single water slide (even some that he wasn't quite tall enough for yet). Boone hung out in the shade of our private cabana living his best life, too. Sharing more of our experience below!

The thing about Splashway is, it's not just a waterpark. While it's a world class one at that, it's so much more. The entire experience is one that kids and parents alike can relish in and soak up summer in it's purest form by means of camping in the cozy cabins, roasting marshmallows around a fire, watching a movie on the big grassy lawn by night, and playing putt putt by day. Life slows down a little bit at Splashway- if you go, you'll see exactly what I mean. After a few hours at the waterpark the first day we were there, we checked into our cabins and instantly fell in love. Bear was so pumped about having his own loft to sleep in and we felt we were really camping, while still having a large kitchen, living area, screened in porch, etc. "Glamping", really (which I was totally good with). We decided to cook hot dogs on the fire followed by s'mores, then my parents watched Boone while Bear and I walked over to watch Coco on the lawn with our friends. On the walk over, Bear looked up at the sky and said, "Mommy- you can actually see the stars!". This was a big moment for our little city boy. He pointed out the big dipper and I'm pretty sure it was his first time seeing it, which made his trip...and mine, too.

There are several large playgrounds at the campground area which Bear loved as well and played on with his friends during the evening hours. Bigger kids were playing basketball on the basketball courts, while the little ones ran around and explored. My only regret is wishing we'd had another night in the campground because we all enjoyed it so much!

The waterpark itself was nicer than I could ever begin to describe in a blog post- you really just have to experience it for yourself. I've never been to a waterpark so clean, family friendly, and safe. From toddler pools to giant water slides, there's truly something for everyone at Splashway. And the food was AMAZING- we ordered everything from grilled chicken wraps to chili cheese nachos and were in absolute heaven. We were also impressed with how reasonably everything was priced and how sweet our servers were. As I mentioned, we had a private cabana with service at the touch of a button which was the way to go. I was able to nurse Boone in privacy and he had a shady spot to hang out, since my parents and I would take turns sitting with him while the other two explored with Bear and friends. It was so much fun and we can't wait to get back to Splashway

I think what blew me away the most was that every day at 1pm, Splashway stops everything and asks people to have a moment of silence for those serving our country. They proudly fly a row of American flags and play the National Anthem, and everyone in the park stops what they're doing to put their hand over their heart and pay tribute to our nation's heroes. I had chills and tears in my eyes and knew in that moment that this was the kind of place I wanted to bring my boys. 

If you want a little getaway this summer, even a day trip (though I'd highly recommend spending at least one night in the cabins!), you can use code HELLOHONEY for $5 off tickets. And if you've been to Splashway before, I'd love to hear about your experience. Everyone I've spoken to that's been has made it a tradition of going every year because it's that special of a place. And a big thank you to my sweet Mom and Dad for being such a big help on this trip and always!
