It’s never too early to find the perfect (on-sale) swimsuit. Out of the hundreds of styles and cuts out there, we’ve searched for the best deals that work with different body types and offer varying levels of coverage. Below, you’ll find long-sleeved rash guards with UPF 50, tiny triangle bikinis, and one-pieces with daring cutouts. Every swimsuit is under $100 (we’ve added the cost of tops and bottoms when each piece is sold separately), so you can find the bathing suit (or two) that will take you from Memorial Day barbecue to Labor Day clambake — without spending a fortune.

Pack this neon monokini for your upcoming Caribbean vacation (and be sure to get lots of photos showing off the lace-up back).

You’ll win the prize for most original suit at the pool party with this athleisure-meets-swimwear longline tank that offers more support and coverage than the average triangle top.

Open-water swimmers will love the sleek design and inner-bust support of this sporty black-and-white one-piece.

Consider this combo of shorts and longline top for your next surf session.

For an option with more coverage, try this nautical-inspired one-piece that, despite its under-$30 price tag, would look fitting on a million-dollar yacht.

This sweet two-piece from the first-ever collaboration between Billabong and Wrangler has extra-cheeky bottoms, so be sure to apply SPF.

These high-cut bottoms pair with a modern ruched top to create a Baywatch-reminiscent look that’s not overly90s.

If you thought one-pieces were boring, the Murakami-esque print and sophisticated square neck on this one will convince you otherwise.

If you’ve ever wished Proenza Schouler made rash guards, it’s your lucky day. The tie-dye palm print of this long-sleeved UPF 50 top looks very similar to the designer’s tropical-leaf print, and the stretchy, lightweight fabric will keep you cool.

This adorable lavender maillot proves that pleats aren’t just for skirts and tuxedo shirts.

Expect minimal tan lines from this simple but stylish bikini with a subtle sweetheart neck and pastel floral pattern.

A bad shoulder sunburn is something you don’t forget. Luckily, with this short-sleeved rash guard top (with built-in shelf bra), your back will be protected from harmful rays.

Summer isn’t complete without eyelet, and this tie-front, high-waisted bikini will make you want to break the “no white before Memorial Day” rule.

Swimming laps can do a number on your swimwear, but this one-shoulder suit is constructed from chlorine-resistant material that won’t fade.
