Six affordable swimsuits perfect for the Australian summer (and your budget)

Tropic like it's hot.

By Cosmo Team

Swimsuit season is well and truly upon us which means there's no more procrastinating — you've got to get your beachwear sorted now before it's too hot to function.

Finding the perfect bikini is really only half of it. You've also got to track down some durable sunnies, a giant beach bag, the perfectly-sized beach towel, a seriously strong sunscreen (we recommend Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+, $16.99) and a sexy lover for a summer fling.

No pressure.

But keep your cool, because team Cosmo enlisted YouTube and Instagram star Ashton Wood to help us track down six swimsuit options that will cater to your rockin' bods and not-so-rockin' bank accounts.

Thank us later AKA when you're poolside looking fab.
