Amazon (tried & true) fashion finds (including swimsuits!) and fit tips

Amazon is SO great because you can buy just about anything, and quite a bit of it is at an awesome price. I have been a Prime member for years and years, and I think it's worth every penny. In between buying batteries, and toilet paper, and printer ink I've also found some really great fashion pieces, and I thought I'd let you know about my favorites. Each piece below is $25 or less (as of publishing time) and available on Prime. The best part of Prime (besides the two-day shipping) is the free and easy returns. With each piece I've mentioned I've let you know my opinions on how they fit, so I hop you'll find this post helpful. Enjoy!

This incredible tie-dyed maxi dress. SUCH a steal at $24.99 - the quality is awesome, and it is something I would have easily paid twice as much for. It is not nearly as low-cut on me as it is on the model, though you could probably pull it that low if you wanted to. I have THIS dress on my next to-buy list. I don't own it *yet* but I'm almost positive it's the same maker as the maxi dress I already own, so I assume it'll fit the same. Fingers crossed ;) FIT: true to size, to slightly big. I ordered a medium.

This palm-leaf, ruffled one piece. This suit is really pretty!! It has great bust support, and although the back shows a bit more skin than I prefer, it is a great fit, and I feel comfortable in it. FIT: slightly small, I sized up and ordered a large.

This off the shoulder, ruffled pineapple one piece. SO much cuteness in one suit. It has good bust support, when you wear the little straps. I think it's cuter with the straps off (they're removable) and the ruffled bits off the shoulder, but I'm too top heavy for it. I wear the ruffles off the shoulder, and the thin straps where they typically go, and it's perfect. FIT: slightly small, I sized up and ordered a large.

This super flattering, ruched one piece. This suit has great support and is incredibly flattering. I ordered this pretty emerald green color, and would love to get one more. SO good and worth every penny, even if it isn't as "fun" as the previous two suits. FIT: true to size, I ordered a size 8.

These fun SOJOS sunnies. I own them in THIS color too. And I own THIS pair. They're so inexpensive, but super high quality. I just love this brand! FIT: one size fits all.

This super cute knotted tank. I own the blue, though it comes in a few other colors as well.FIT: This runs small for sure. It's adorable, but a bit tight. If you like it a bit looser, size up one size, if you like it down right flowy go up two sizes. I ordered a large.

This oversized lace-up sweater. I know we are currently in summer, but I bought this in late Fall and am obsessed. Buy your true size, and it fits slightly oversized and looks super cute with skinny jeans, or leggings. The tie up front can show a tiny peak of bra, but it isn't overtly sexy (although the model wears it as a dress, so I'm sure this is meant to be a sexier piece than how I wear it.) This is a really cute piece, and I get compliments on it every time I wear it! FIT: true to size gives it a good oversized, but not too big look. I ordered a medium.

Those are my favorite budget-friendly fashion finds from Amazon (SO FAR!) I'm always ordering new things, so I'll add to this post or create new ones with more seasonally-appropriate items. What are some of the best things you've purchased from Amazon?? Feel free to leave links in the comments!
