Our special Bikini Body issue hit newsstands this week, and cover model Marisa Miller is definitely my pick for best body of 2009. She looks amazing. And whether you've been working your butt off to get into swimwear shape this year or not--you deserve to feel good poolside. So in celebration of summer Fridays, backyard barbeques, and long walks on the beach, I'm offering up my picks for best bikinis under $50.
Make a splash in tribal prints, like this Ikat two-piece from Forever 21 ($26; forever21.com).
Look good from all angles in this sexy number from Victoria's Secret (on sale now for $40; victoriassecret.com).
Nothing says summer like brightly colored florals (on sale now for $40; ae.com).
