Budget Shopping the Bimbo Way

This post about bimbo clothes was originally published way back in 2005! I’ve revamped it because there are so, so many more options for those of us who like to show a little skin every now and again.

To everything is a season and apparently summer is the season of bimbos.

What is a bimbo? In the extreme, bimbos are the gals in the office who wear belly baring “Future M.I.L.F” shirts and wonder why only the guys in the office ask them out to lunch.There are bimbos of all ages, races, sizes, income levels, and intelligence levels. They’re saucy and flirty, like Blanche from “Golden Girls” or Laurie Forman from “That 70’s Show.”

In reality, most of us do foray into bimboland now and again, particularly in the warmer months. There’s something about summer — the heat, the sun — that turns ordinary, Talbot-loving women into halter-top-wearing, jersey-knit-loving bimbos. Myself included.

So, yes, I’ve had those bimbo moments, and I’ll bet you have too. When the bimbo vibe strikes you, do a quick appropriateness check — are you heading out the door to see your grandma? — and then go for it.

Where to Buy Bimbo Clothes

Here are my favorite places to buy bimbo clothing.

American Eagle Outfitters

Preppy bimbos love to shop here!


Bimbos of all ages love Forever21 because you can put together an entire outfit for well under $30. Older, seasoned, Budget Fashionistas will appreciate the incredible, low-priced accessories.


Guess ads always feature the bimbo of the moment (Anne Nicole Smith, Paris Hilton, Hailey Baldwin). The quality of their clothes is one very small step above Forever21.


H&M makes the list for its selection of $5 and $10 summer pieces that seem to be made for teenage girls. No judgment here. I’ve been known to shop in the juniors section.


Romwe, like H&M, has a massive selection of trendy, ultra-cheap clothes. You may be gambling a bit as the quality can be spotty — but if fast bimbo fashion is what you need, you can find it at Romwe. For more information, see our Romwe review.


I own a legit crop top from TOBI. It’s a racy piece, but also very cute. Tobi has incredible sales, too.


Venus has a good selection of bodycon dresses and clingy tops at the $30 price point. The inventory tends to churn pretty quickly, so shop fast to get what you want.

Now, when that bimbo vibe strikes, at least you’ll know where to shop!
