Forever 21+ Swimwear 2018: Plus Size Babe One-Piece Swimsuit

Every year Forever 21+ brings out some slogan/statement swimsuits, and this year is no exception.

Today I am sharing with you the Plus Size Babe One-Piece Swimsuit.

Simple, sassy, and with a nod to Barbie with the dupe font, this swimsuit was definitely high up on my list to review here on the blog. I ordered a size 0X.

The fit was pretty much spot-on for me...but of course I had my constant gripe of not enough boob room.

Well, the boob room wasn't actually too bad on this one, but I definitely needed more coverage at the sides for my boobs. Sideboob is all well and good for less busty celebs, but for me it's very dangerous territory!

I love the racerback style on this swimsuit; it makes a change from the usual scoopback or plain old straps. And it's super comfortable, too!

There is no formal boob support in this swimsuit at all - no underwires, and no internal boob shelf. Still, the suit did a pretty good job of supporting my bust despite that.

The swimsuit is quite modestly cut, so medium leg rather than high, and with good coverage on the backside. There's no danger of getting a wedgie with this one!

The racerback straps give the swimsuit a halterneck appearance from the front, which I really like. As someone who almost always has the weight of bra straps upon her shoulders, it made a pleasant change to have the strain distributed elsewhere, and in fact I didn't feel any discomfort whatsoever.

With the 'Babe' slogan, F21 could have gone all out with a really high cut leg and super low cut bustline, but they didn't. I really like the fact that what we have here is a simple, comfortable and practical swimsuit that has a sassy side to it thanks to the slogan. This suit is really wearable and I expect to see it on lots of plus size beauties this summer.

So this swimsuit gets a major thumbs up from me! What do you think of it? Do let me know in the comments.


  1. Well isnt this a lovely swimming costume. Its funny, its just a straightforward black cossie but because they have put a logo on it it looks great! I was going to order some jeans from F21, I think I will add this to my basket. Thanks for your helpful review XXX

    1. I am so glad my review helped you! Did you buy this one in the end? I'd love to know what you thought of it.

  2. I need a swimming costume as I am starting swimming lessons, its abit embarassing to be an adult who cant swim but thats me! And soon it wont be hahaha! Anyway do you think this swimming cozzie would be appropriate for swimming lessons or do I need something more sturdy??

    1. I think it's absolutely brilliant that you're having swimming lessons. Better to learn the skill than continue being a non-swimmer. And yes, I think this would be great for this as the racer back means you won't have the straps falling off your shoulders. Good luck!

  3. Thanks for your useful review, I just bought this swimsuit because of your recommendation. Also I will be telling my cousin to get one as she has been looking for a funky black swimsuit for weeks. Cheers.

    1. Oh bless you, thank you for your kind words. I hope you and your cousin both love this swimsuit, it's pretty awesome!
