It’s swimsuit season! Time to break out the sunscreen, strip down to your skivvies, and head for the shores. The question is, are you bikini-ready?

Now, we’re not talking extra weight here (although it’s always a race to shed those stubborn, long-past-Christmas pounds before March). We’re talking swimsuits, in all their shapes and styles—have you found “The One” that’s going to take you through the summer?

If not, help yourself to FN’s swimsuit round-up! Choose from 35 great bikinis, tankinis, one-pieces, and more in this edition of Frugalista Finds. Prices start at P899 and peak at P1,499.
