Ladies, we’ve come a long way since the figure-hiding swimsuits of the early 20th century, and today’s the day to celebrate the most famous swimsuit of them all. July 5 is National Bikini Day, which marks the anniversary of the first time that the revealing two-piece first hit European beaches in 1945.

This skimpy style took a little longer to gain momentum in North America, but by the 19060s women here had embraced the bikini and it’s stayed in style ever since.

Whether you’re heading on vacation to a tropical location, lounging dockside at the cottage or hanging by the pool, finding a bikini that’s flattering and affordable is often top of mind. To solve your swimsuit dilemmas, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite two-pieces in honour of National Bikini Day, with all of them at a wallet-friendly price tag.
